assignment

Capture the events of this couple’s wedding day, from preparation through reception.

the plan

I was contacted by the bride, seeking to have her wedding day documented from beginning to end. This wedding was actually a referral from a previous Lebanese wedding and turned out to be just as joyful as that first one! Also of note was that this wedding – though in Ohio – was for a couple who were coming up from the south for the wedding and would be heading back down south to their home afterwards.

I was able to email back and forth with the bride prior to the wedding to go over what elements they wanted to include, as well as to be able to build a personal connection that allowed the bride get to know me, and for me to get to know the bride. This allowed me to set up my plan to be present for the events of the day, from the bride and her party getting ready for the ceremony, through most of the biggest moments of the reception. We utilized multiple cameras and independent audio capture to provide the highest-quality footage to work with.

the delivery

After collecting all of the footage for the wedding day I crafted a full-featured DVD that included the complete ceremony (divided by chapters), highlights from the reception (bridal party entrances, speeches, first dances, etc.), footage from the pre-ceremony prep time and a highlight film that captured the mood from preparation through the big moments of the day. I also created digital copies of select videos that were made available to the family online.
