Photos in Video: A Great Way to Tell a Story

I am taking a little different approach for this blog entry.  Usually I am showing off the photos in a pretty straight forward way. But one of the ways I like to show off my work is in the form of a video slideshow.  I edit these together and show them on a large TV at the reception of the couple.

When you see the photos in motion and listen to the music, it just brings the experience to life.  So, today I will show two examples from recent weddings.

First, Chantel and McKay.  What a fun couple!  I will be up front here... Chantel is an in-law, sister to my son-in-law.  But "family" or not, it was a pleasure to work with them on their wedding.  We did the engagement photos in American Fork Canyon and Cedar Hills.  They chose to do the First Look session, which we did outside the Utah State Capital, then we did formals at the capital and at the Bountiful Temple.  Enjoy!

Isn't that a great way to enjoy the photos?  I love it.

Next, another example.

Emily and Zach.  Emily is one of my favorite people on the planet.  She has been a model, photographer, and dear friend for many years.  So when Zach was ready to pop the big question, we plotted our plan.  The big moment was to be in the Cactus & Tropicals Nursery in Salt Lake City, where they met! (and later were married there too)  I was secreted behind a few tall trees and bamboo walls, while Zach led Emily to the target zone!  Oh, we had it all planned out.  She didn't know I was there, I even had to tell her a few white lies that afternoon so as not to tip off the plan.  :)  Well, as you watch the video, you will see the fun.  Made me cry too!

We shot the engagement photos at Wheeler Farm and a First Look at the State Capital, indoors this time.  Enough chat... lets watch!  (sorry, it's in three parts)

I hope you enjoyed watching these slideshows.  Just another way we can make your wedding or event more memorable!
