Sarah and Andy were amazing. Jill and I have been astonished at how many wonderful couples we’ve been blessed to work. We are so grateful for each couple who we’ve worked with during the last few years, as wedding photographers and videographers in Seattle.
Sarah and Andy were married at Lord Hill Farms in Snohomish, WA. Nickel Images did the photography and were awesome to work with. Pat at A Heavenly Ceremony facilitated a beautiful, touching ceremony,and Valerie at A Vibrant Wedding worked her tush off to make sure everything went smoothly.
The song in this trailer was specifically requested by Sarah, and was also the song for their first dance. We’re often asked: “How do you pick the music in your wedding trailers?” The short answer is: we don’t really pick the music. The longer answer is: when a couple doesn’t have a specific song in mind, we make a decision from their list of favorite music to be used in the full-length wedding film, based on the feel of the day, the tone of the footage, and how we feel the couple’s personalities are best represented through music.
I always get nervous before a wedding, just because I know that I could completely ruin everything if I’m not 100%. The morning of a wedding day is the worst; usually I feel more confident as the day goes on and the footage turns out, but the morning is the worst.
Sarah and her bridesmaids were getting ready while watching Bride Wars at her mom’s house. Jill and I quietly started setting up our cameras and support gear when Sarah told me that she’s been looking forward to her wedding video more than anything else about her wedding. No pressure or anything. If my fear of messing everything up at a wedding is normally at level 100, I was suddenly over 9,000. Her expression of excitement was very sweet, however, and gradually sank in as a very encouraging thought. I hope that Sarah enjoys the trailer and the full-length wedding film to come!
