Sydney + Devin’s Wedding Film

leave a comment »

 

When we sat down to meet and discuss the possibility of helping Sydney and Devin capture their wedding on film at the Old Decatur Courthouse in Atlanta, GA, there was a genuine feel of emotion between this couple. During the discussion about their wedding film, the couple communicated that they had TV/Video Production backgrounds, so from a technical standpoint we were able to talk about some of the latest tools that help make a great wedding film. From the very start it became a collaborative effort that we all were comfortable with. It was important to learn some of the important details about what the couple expected for J and J Digital Media to capture.  As a wedding videographers we have truly have learned to keep open minds and be prepared when it comes to capturing content for wedding films and this occasion was no exception. The couple planned a first look prior to the wedding. While we have done many first looks in the past, this was different. The emotion felt by Sydney and Devin was overwhelming and contagious as you can see in the their highlight film. After the first look, we dried our eyes, gathered our composure, and prepped for what we knew would carry over from the first look to the wedding itself and it did not disappoint!

The Wedding Video Story of Kimberly and Jack

leave a comment »

The one thing that I knew for certain on the day that I met Kimberly was that this wedding would take place outside in a romantic setting, regardless of the weather. After all, we would only be outside for 15 minutes. Though a bit on the cool side, we made it happen. The wedding ceremony took place at night which presented only a slight challenge with being able to capture video sequences that were of high quality without affecting the mood of the evening. Shooting with DSLRs allowed us to overcome this challenge with ease. The food, dancing and fun went well into the night at Flint Hill in Norcross, GA. Kimberly and Jack were great to work which made this shoot entertaining and fun for us as well. Thank You Kimmi and Jack for making us feel like family.

Wedding Video First Look

leave a comment »

Many of the current wedding customs originate from century old superstitions. One such custom or superstition is that of it being a “bad omen,” for the groom to see the bride before the wedding ceremony. Now, where did this come from? Centuries ago, marriages were often considered business arrangements between the two families. Many times in these arranged marriages, the couple had no idea who they were marrying. On the wedding day the bride’s  family would keep the her hidden from the groom in order to conceal her physical appearance from the groom so he would not have the opportunity to disapprove and “bolt.”  Can you imagine that happening today?

Knowing where this superstition originated, many couples are starting to forgo this superstition and conduct what is now known as the first look or first glance. It is an opportunity for the bride and groom to see each other in the absence of all of their guests. What a great video and photo opportunity this is, as only a select few people will observe the couple in their first look. Usually it is the photographer, videographer there to capture the reaction of the couple and Matron/Maid of Honor to adore and help with the dress. The attached link is an example of a first look on the wedding day of Shelby and Joshua King. https://vimeo.com/45177499

It was a beautiful day at the Indian Hills Golf Course in Marietta, Ga as the couple danced the night away. The club room was laced with vibrant colors, emotions flowing and exquisite food. The more time that we spent with Christine and David, the more we realized just how compatible the two are, and indeed, great people to be around. We wish you all the blessings for a successful marriage!  See the highlights/trailer at the following link:  http://vimeo.com/jnjdigitalmedia/chrisanddavid

A Wonderful Wedding Day Video Story in Norcross, GA (Wedding Videographer in Atlanta GA)

leave a comment »

With the sun shining and birds chirping love was truly in the air at the Atrium in Norcross, GA. After spending less than 5 minutes with Jessica and Kenyan,  we got the feeling that these two were an awesome couple. This was an outside wedding that occurred around sunset, so the atmosphere was truly captivating. Outside weddings are always exciting and makes for a great video. You can see some the stills that we captured from video below and see the Highlights/Trailer at the following link http://vimeo.com/36170079

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

leave a comment »

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!!!
