Tamika and Eric Yancy Wedding at Pristine Chapel, Jonesboro, GA

You could not ask for a more perfect day for a wedding. Sun shining, birds chirping and love in the air. This was one of the more unique weddings that I have witnessed complete with a bride’s best man! The brother of the bride. The wedding video was exceptional!!! I am listing some of the challenges and how we were able to overcome them. Some challenges that we needed to overcome were the following.

1. A 12noon wedding with the sun directly overhead. This presents a unique challenge in that the LCD screens used to view the video that we were shooting was saturated by sunlight and made it extremly hard for us to see the viewfinder. For obvious reasons one would need to see what he is shooting, but with high definition video in an outside setting you really should only use the manual focus. So, you really need to see what the camera is picking up in detail. We used field expedient viewfinder hoods by cutting card board to make shade for our viewfinders.

2. It was an extremely windy day. During any kind of event the last thing the viewer wants to hear is the wind whizzling in the microphone. Therefore we used (windsocks) to help absorb the sound of the wind along with external microphones.

All in all, we made the necessary adjustments in order to be able to produce an outstanding video production for Tamika and Eric.

These are a few tips and tricks that you can apply when shooting video that, “does not suck.” Good Shooting!!!!

I have attached a few still photos from video and have posted the link for the trailer… Enjoy!!!

Danielle and Melvin Hackett Wedding at Lake Lanier Islands, GA

This was a beautiful wedding at a beautiful location in Lake Lanier Islands! Seeing these two together, you got the feeling that they were made for each other. The wedding took place outside on the lake shore just as leaves were beginning to turn and a fall feel in the air, however, nice enough for a comfortable evening of love and new beginnings. The colors were fucia and black against the greenery made it a stunning picturesque scene. After a relaxed wedding ceremony it was time for some extreme fun with superb food, ice-cold drink, an Alpha step show. (The Groom, Melvin is an Alpha). There was also a dance contest. All captured with two Sony AX2000’s. You cannot beat an outside wedding when it comes to capturing high-definition video. You can view the highlight video at the following link:

Sheree and Ryan’s wedding was a quaint and spectacular event.  The wedding took  place on October 2, at Old Courthouse on the Square in Decatur, GA. This is a hostoric location with a stylish and rustic look to it and should servee as the perfect venue to capture some amazing wedding video footage. This wedding in the Atlanta, GA area was a two video camera shoot. The groom was outfitted with a wireless microphone to capture amazing sound, which is a hallmark of all of our wedding video productions. It also featured 2 camera coverage at the ceremony which took place at 4pm. The reception was immediatly following at the same location. It was definately party time at the reception. Electric Slide, Cupid Shuffle and more. We even had a few members of Omega Psi Phi who did some hopping at the reception. It was definately an event to remember. Best Wishes Sheree and Ryan…… See the Trailer at the following link http://vimeo.com/31622892
