The Return of Chinyere and Ronald, a Lake Lanier Islands Wedding Film

leave a comment »

For Ronald this was an opportunity to return to where it all began.  Having grown up in the northern US, Ronald spent most of his summers visiting family with events centering around Lake Lanier. So, to come back to Lake Lanier Islands to marry his sweetheart was a dream come true. Chinyere whose roots are in Ghana, West Africa, was joined by family who would not have missed this occasion for anything.  The atmosphere was festive, the food was delicious and we all had a great time celebrating this couple’s big day. This was an outside event which took place at 4 pm, so experience with ND filters came in handy for this shoot. We provided this couple with wedding memories that will last a lifetime!

Stacey and AJ’s Wedding Romance and Video Hightlights!

leave a comment »

At the outset we knew that there was something a little different about Stacy and AJ. Traditional in many aspects, but abundantly unique in their approach to the planning and execution of their wedding. We were there to help them remember every aspect. From the statement of vows written by the couple, to those in attendance remembering and stating the names of those that had gone before them followed by the statement, “Ashay,” meaning “In Honor.” The couple sprinkled drops of sacred water from a cup upon hearing each name . There was truly not a dry eye in the house during the ceremony. It was not long after that the fun truly jumped off in the house at the Atlanta Marriot Marquis. We wish Stacy and AJ a blessed and wonderful marriage!!! Congrats………..        View the Wedding Video Highlights at the following link    https://vimeo.com/44008105

Bridal Showcase at Lake Lanier Islands

leave a comment »

February 19,  was a day of proactive marketing at Lake Lanier Islands, Georgia. The affair? The semi-annual Bridal Showcase, an opportunity for local wedding vendors and brides to meet. For the brides this was a great show to view and gain some ideas as they are put the finishing touches on their wedding day plans. For me it was an opportunity to showcase some of my recent wedding videos that took place at Lake Lanier and around the Atlanta, Ga area in hopes that some lucky couple would take advantage of my high quality and entertaining wedding video production talents.  The list of vendor categories in attendance included; caterers, florists, DJ’s, wedding venues, and photographers. The organizers, Blair and Dale were exceptionally grateful and as always put on a very nice affair that was beneficial for both vendors and brides. Some of the video highlights that were shown at the event included, The Hackets, the Sniths and Berringer wedding video highlights. If you are in the market for a wedding venue I strongly encourage you to take a look at Lake Lanier Islands. POC Blair.

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

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

Great Opportunity to Meet and Capture Julius “Dr. J” Erving on Video Speaking on an Important Topic

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……
