Every wedding and video shoot has its own unique challenges and forces us to learn and re-adapt. Today’s post and lesson for clients and professionals alike is, ADD YOUR OWN FLAIR!
I try to add my own voice and perspective into every video I produce. I think producing videos puts so many tools at your disposal in which you can use to differentiate your work.
Sounds, lights, movement, music, are just a few of the unique elements that you can use in whatever way you see fit to craft a truly one-of-a-kind video for your client.
I recently had the pleasure of finishing a video for a new wedding venue – Black Diamond Gardens. Once the client approves the final version I’ll be posting the video in its own post, but I wanted to take a moment to reflect upon some of the fun I had putting the video together.
Talk about a unique, target-rich environment! A living farm, located on over 11 acres of beautiful land down in Black Diamond, truly a videographer’s dream. Flowers, a fire pit, an amazing old greenhouse that’s been converted to a banquet hall, and even livestock, I would be crazy not to include each and every element of it in the final video (and I did!).
My favorite part was a “nat” pop (natural sound captured on site) of a rooster caw timed perfectly with the crescendo of the music leading into us seeing our beautiful bride on location for the first time in the video. It really made me happy!
Stayed tuned either later today/tomorrow for a new post with the finished video!
