The Wedding Video Story of Crystal and Anthony

leave a comment »

Winter weddings are fun! Especially if the wedding is outdoors?! God shined his face upon Crystal and Anthony as the weather held out for a comfortable winter wedding at Shamrock Community Center in Jonesboro, GA. The colors for this wedding were bold and beautiful. (Gold and Black). The Groom (Anthony) a devout Pittsburgh Steeler fan, was suprised to see that the Bride (Crystal), had a Pittsburgh Steeler cake made especially for him and presented at the reception. How does Anthony show his appreciation for his cake? By smashing the cake in the face!?!?!?!, but in a loving kinda way….OK, we have a hunch about where Anthony spent the night sleeping on the honeymoon. Can you say C>O>U>C>H. Ouch!! Be glad she had already said, “I do.” Nevertheless, we love outside weddingss and we were honored to have played a small part in helping make Crystal and Anthony’s wedding day memories live forever. Best of Luck and God Bless Anthony and Crystal!. We invite you to view a few stills below that we captured from video and  the Highlight/Trailer at http://vimeo.com/35765804

The Wedding Video Story of Margaretta and Ben

leave a comment »

Can you say PARTY…………..?
That is exactly what it was in Newnan, GA. until the weeeeee hours of the morning as I vaguely remember. This wedding was unique as all weddings are, but with some Croatian traditions by way of the Bride, Margaretta. Breaking a champagne bottle at the reception was one that we truly had not seen nor heard of until this celebration. The first dance was especially touching with the families of both bride and groom embracing as the couple danced to Peter Gabrielle’s, “The Book of Love.” On the technical side, it was a standard Catholic Ceremony which lasted about 45 minutes. Although most Catholic Synagogues are very restrictive, we were able to get some very unique angles as the couple embraced for thier first kiss. The bride and groom planned and executed a truly unique exit at the end of the ceremony, which again, we had not seen until this ceremony. The reception was outdoors at the family’s estate in Newnan. I love shooting outdoors, particularly because of the perfect lighting which enables superb color acquisition with HD cameras. As with all outdoor weddings the challenge is to make sure that your settings are on manual, especially focus control. A quote from the bride, “Bennie, you guys were wonderful. I could not have asked for a more professional experience. We have watched the DVD well over 50 times and I am still amazed at how entertaining and fun it is to watch. Thank you so much.” www.JandJDigitalMedia.Com

leave a comment »

NBA legend Julius Erving and now spokesperson for CORD:USE Foundation, recently gave a presentation and endorsed this foundation at Congregation B’nai Torah in Atlanta, GA. He and a few other sports figures are highlighting and supporting the research and development of the multiple uses of cord blood. There are 80 or more, (including Sickle Cell) identifiable diseases that may be able to be treated by cord blood transfusions, in some cases curing and or at a minimum, giving patients a better quality of life. He spoke on how, if we had known about cord blood and it’s benefits 30 years ago, his younger brother may be still be alive today.

Dr Joanne Kurtzberg, Medical Director of CORD:USE was the primary speaker for this event. The Audience-local physicians and nurses (family practice, OBGYN).  She detailed the benefits of cord use, emphasized to other health care providers the importance of properly handling the umbilical cord for use after birth and gave statistics from clinical studies using cord blood to treat various diseases.

I was honored to have been given the opportunity to play a small part in helping to get the awareness out by providing video coverage of this event.

And yes, when I shook Dr. J’s hand, it wrapped around my hand twice!!!

The Wedding Video Story of Kesha and Sheldon

leave a comment »

A delightful day indeed at the Vecoma near Stone Mountain, GA. It was a day of delight laughter and fun for Kesha and Sheldon. The couple planned their wedding in

“exquisite detail and it really showed.” However, there was a bit of a surprise that only Sheldon knew about. He upgraded Kesha’s ring and when it came to the exchange of rings. “BAAAM!” What a surprise as Kesha shouted with utter surprise and we, J and J Digital Media were there to capture every moment. When they look back on their wonderful day it will be a moment that they both will treasure for years to come. As for the setting. The Vecoma is a beautiful quaint venue located in Stone Mountain. It sets near the Yellow River and makes for some great still shots. The food was great, dancing was fun and we were are honored to have played a small part in helping to make the couple’s wedding day memories live forever. The couple’s comments about their video. “Bennie, We absolutely LOVE our video! We couldn’t be more happy! Thank You……
