My obsession with wedding video is well documented. My post on finding my wedding videographer was one of my highest viewed posts ever. That could be because of all the talk of pants peeing though. My favorite thing about great wedding videos is that I really feel like I’m there. I love weddings, and if a wedding video lets me feel like I’m part of another wedding, well then bring em on, in boat loads. (No seriously, if you have a wedding video you want featured, please click that “contact me” button at the top of the page. Cuz I wanna see it!!!)
Today’s video comes to us from DMOFilms. Matt Fink (@DMOFilms) and I have been Twitter buds for quite a while now, so I’m extra excited to be sharing this wedding video with you. I have so many favorite moments from this video, but I don’t wanna spoil them, since you haven’t seen it yet, unless you skipped ahead! Share your favorite moments in the comments and we can chat about them! K? K!!
Here’s what Matt had to say about this video on his blog:
I knew from the moment I met Mike and Laurie before they even chose us to film their wedding that they were going to have a great wedding and I NEEDED to film this wedding. They are so fun and sweet together!
Three days before I met with them I had started taking a workshop in NYC with 2 of the best event filmmakers in the world. Learning so much in the 3 short days I had a lot to think about in terms of what I wanted and needed to do with my filming style and business. On the train ride home I just sat there, deep in thought, trying to come up with a plan, especially knowing I had a meeting with Laurie and Mike later that night. After an hour I couldn’t come up with anything, there was just too much excitement to put together a solid plan so fast so I decided to call Laurie and try to postpone the meeting explaining that I needed time to formulate my new plan. I knew this was risky because it would be very easy for her to just write me off and move on to the next company, but I knew if I met with them I would ramble on and probably scare them away anyhow. Laurie responded very simply – “lets just meet tonight anyways” – I was scared. I had no idea what to say or do and I knew this was just going to be a disaster.
Lucky for me Laurie and Mike were so easy to talk to – I just went on and on about what I learned and what I wanted to do different from the past, showed them some samples of older work and explained the differences between “new” and “old” and at the end of my crazy ramble they both agreed they loved my enthusiasm and would love to hire me. I was elated! I could not believe that they were willing to take a chance on me based on how we used to film without any true samples of what theirs would be like. I couldn’t thank them enough for giving us this huge opportunity!
Below is the short film from their wedding. Mike and Laurie took a chance on us and our new style and I think it really paid off! What do you think?
