It’s a long time since I photographed my last wedding, I moved away from that about nine or ten years ago simply because my photography as heading in another direction. But I still love the buzz every wedding produces and the privilege of being part of the big day.
A little while ago we had a family wedding, a pro wedding photographer was duly installed to capture all the critical shots which he did exceedingly well and I was secretly pleased not to miss the entire day corralling reluctant relatives into predictable group photos. Instead I offered to shoot a video… I was hooked. The idea of telling a story of this beautiful couple through the mixing of film, music and audio in a 10 minute short was utterly compelling and something I knew I had to do again.
Well, I’ve just be asked to film a large wedding next year, which seems a long way off but already the juices are running and ideas are forming in my little brain. Also a new kit list is taking shape, specifically around audio capture which is key to any story telling. As ideas develop I shall tell you more.
