On March 17th, 2012, I married my best friend, Ginger. The wedding was awesome, but finally being married is even better.
When creating our wedding budget, we, like every other couple, had to make decisions about what to prioritize and what to invest in. Being a cinematographer, I knew I wanted to invest in cinematography, and I wanted it to be good. I had been working with Sam Gensic and Thread & Film quite a bit in the several months leading up to our wedding, and I immediately thought of them. We discussed options and came up with a really awesome idea. Thread & Film would shoot our wedding, but I would be the one to edit it. This would give me creative control over the story of the film, while having incredible footage to work with. It was a huge blessing to have Sam and his crew come out and film for us, and I couldn’t be happier with the way everything turned out.
During this process, I’ve learned a lot about wedding cinematography, mainly concerning its value. I’ve added a page with these thoughts to the website. I encourage you to take a look. If you don’t really believe in the value of cinematography and understand its differences with both photography and traditional videography, you won’t be able to make the best decision about whether or not to invest in it.
Editing our footage was incredibly fun. I hope you enjoy this trailer, and keep your eyes peeled for a longer film in the coming months.
