Byron Bay, how I love filming weddings here. Rain or sunshine, this beautiful part of the planet always seems to deliver the goods. And let me tell you, we had a good amount of both on this day. But a great wedding film doesn’t just need a stunning backdrop; it requires a stunning couple as well. I was blessed with both on this occasion, as I regularly am.
Julia & Scott reside a bit further north, and when we met on Skype, we instantly hit it off. They both have warm, friendly personalities and radiated good vibes throughout our entire chat. The rapport between us in the meeting transitioned seamlessly to their wedding day, as these two served me up infectious, natural energy; etching themselves onto the sensor of my camera and inevitably onto the screen with this wedding film I present to you.
Though one person may capture this film, these shots aren’t possible without an amazing team of vendors. These are the professionals who work tirelessly on the day to make sure the couple have the best day of their lives. They are the people who make shots pretty with flowers, they create delicious food and a warm atmosphere, they welcome you into their venue and play as a team to ensure you get the shots you need, they share the space with you on a location shoot and hold an umbrella over your camera as the rain comes down, they let you put a mic on them to capture clean audio at the ceremony, and they bring the vibes as they beat the drums and sing their heart out. These people are the filling in this love sandwich and I loved working with every single one of them.
Julia and Scott, thank you. Thank you for being you. Thank you for the invite and for trusting me to capture your epic wedding day.
