So this is a first for me… a blog post showing the full length “long form” version of part of a wedding I filmed. I recently edited together the “first dance” from Brook and Trevor’s wedding and thought it would be fun to post it here. I know Brook and Trevor have been so patient with me in the editing process (video editing takes FOREVER)… and so I thought as a little gift to them I’d give them a little sneak peak here on my blog. I hope you like it guys!

Side note; I’ve also never done Black and White for an entire section of video like this before… but somehow it just seemed to fit this dance with the cool lighting, and lens flares. Speaking of which, the spot light was my idea, and the first time I’ve ever had a spot light at a wedding. I pitched the idea to Brook and Trevor the week of their wedding as a last minute addition, and they went for it! So this video also shows what cool lighting can do for a first dance! Of course I don’t own a spot light, so after renting this one I want to go out and buy one someday. : )

  2. Found this through Holly’s blog – she is right, this is beautiful. The spot light is a great addition. I’m spreading the word to some of our local video guys. They really need to check this out.
