I’m a BIG fan of Comic Books. Grew up reading them and still have my collection to this day. When I heard we’d be driving to the city that was used as Gotham for the movie The Dark Knight, I was excited :).
This is another collaboration with rBM. I was in the hot seat this time cutting up the Same Day Edit as well as shooting and flying steadicam. I had a nice challenge from Brian to top the SDE he crafted for Jenifer and Henk the week before. Barry Connor joined us from New Orleans to join in on the fun (supposedly we were humping 150lbs of gear through about a mile and a half of walking during a heat wave, so yes, fun! ;) ). Another crazy day in the adventures of Wedding Cinematography. This wedding was different than any other wedding I’ve shot because it included many indian traditions that I was not familiar with up until a few days ago of reading and educating myself on what would happen. The two most favorite things that I loved about this wedding? The traditional clothing with all it’s incredible detail and design and the meeting of the Groom’s and Bride’s family!
Pritee and Vivek are in love with the Steelers. I mean in LOVE. Their wedding gifts to each other centered around that as well as lots of the details of the wedding day, from the henna on their hands to the cloths being swung around during their reception grand entrance. I’m not too into sports but just being around them wanted me to start cheering for the steelers, haha.
The day after the wedding, we got to do some sight seeing of chicago. What sights you say? Well none other than the filming locations used during production of the dark knight movie :). Took quite a bit of pictures but ehh…here’s something you’ll enjoy even more :
