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 :
“Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book is a highly edited collection of wedding service providers – from mom and pop boutiques to A-Listers. Bottom line, these vendors are the best of the best.” Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book
Colour Craft Media is proud to be accepted into Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book of vendors for Hawaii Wedding Cinematography! It’s a real honor as anyone who wishes to advertise with them must go through an arduous approval and screening process which involves evaluation on design, work, and personality of your company. They saw our work, loved it, and immediately pushed us through the process.
CCm aims to be a well designed and fashionable cinematography studio without sacrificing the individuality of each couple. Style Me Pretty’s editor (Abby Larson) also feels the same way about design. She feels it’s all about putting your own personality and style into your wedding and it should give your guests a view of who you are as a couple. Your wedding design should be based on what you as a couple love and not what someone else says is chic or “in” at the time. It’s such a great feeling to be associated with a blog like Style Me Pretty who cares about the quality of vendors they allow to advertise and be a part of their Little Black Book rather than just opening the door to anyone who has the cash to pony up.
Take a look at their blog if you’re looking for some design inspiration. There’s quite a bit of swagger being tossed around there :).
During the Michelle and Landon wedding I shot in Ohio, I also took some b-roll of my buddy Brian Jones from iDream Media in action, my compadres @ red Bicycle Media just got done cutting up the footage. Here’s the video :
Here is a couple of shots taken when I was “flying” in Ohio. The venue was the beautiful Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens. One of the nicest outdoor wedding venues I’ve shot at. Thanks to Brian Jones of iDream Media for hooking it up with the awesome stills! I had a great time shooting the wedding alongside him, a true class act and I cant recommend him enough if you’re out on that side of the country and need photography ;). Check out his site and oogle at the pretty pictures.
Here’s the photos from the wedding : Michelle and Landon
This is a wedding I filmed and flew steadicam for a few months ago. I shot alongside Waikiki Video Pro and handled most of the filming while they cut the Same Day Edit. This was my 2nd time breaking out the steadicam for a wedding and I was very excited how the footage came out. They had some incredible performances during the reception with a Jabbawockeez style routine not to mention the EPIC grand entrance and first dance.
