No, we haven’t fallen off the face of the earth….just been busy traveling, shooting weddings and doing TONS of editing!!! This time of year other wedding professionals will say “Are you happy to be going in to the slow season?” but they don’t realize we don’t have a slow season! This is when we put our noses to the grindstone and edit like crazy, try to keep all our hard drives cleaned up and backed up, book tons of weddings for the next year, and our corporate work ramps up. So I apologize for not posting lately and I promise I’ll post more very soon….I have about a million videos to share with you and have couples asking me all the time to post their videos on our blog! LOL!!
I have this one ready to go on my laptop since we just filmed it a week and a half ago, so I thought I would post it first.
Emily and Jeff found us online and fell in love with our work so they brought us from Seattle to Houston for their wedding and to do a Same Day Edit. The first time I spoke with Emily on the phone I think we chatted for almost two hours! When I finally got to meet her in person on the morning of their wedding day, it was like two old friends getting back together again! We talked for an hour and then all of the sudden the hair stylist showed up and she was like “Eeek! I have to take a shower!” it was pretty funny!
The ceremony and reception both took place at the swanky Hotel ZaZa, which is also where we stayed for the weekend….definitely a hotel that I would recommend! If you can afford the Black Label Suite or any of the other “Magnificent Seven” suites, do it! Emily got ready in the breathtaking Black Label Suite which has an amazing view and even a hot tub on the large balcony.
The day went by so quickly but the wedding was gorgeous, everyone had tons of fun and our colleague Rolando was SUPER helpful as another shooter (thanks again, Rolando!!). The Same Day Edit was a smash hit at the reception and later Emily told me it was even better than she had anticipated. We got a chance to say goodbye the next morning before having breakfast with another wedding filmmaker friend in Houston and then headed back to Seattle. It was a short but sweet trip and I’m so happy we were able to provide an awesome video for Emily & Jeff!
