Alexis & Ray - A Great Day to get married!

Alexis and Ray picked the PERFECT day to get married! Why you ask? Because August 24th is my birthday of course! Seriously though, they really did have a great day!

I have to write to you about this film. I have been filming weddings for almost 15 years now and not often does a film touch me. While I was editing Alexis' and Ray's wedding highlight reel below, I had to keep the kleenex near by. I edit to the muse, whereever she guides me, that is how the film is developed... but this was so much more. Sometimes when I am in the moment, and thinking about the people and my perspective, and how to get the most impactual (is that a word? ) shot...I don't really see what I have until I am back in the studio and the edit is coming together.

There are a few really TOUCHING moments of Alexis and Ray on the dance floor, and in the studio I am realizing - WOW - he REALLY loves her! What a powerful emotion love is! Well, before I get myself chocked up again... Enjoy! (Feel free to leave a comment for future clients to see!)

Thanks Sheila for the video! The instant film and the classic video was everything (and more) that Ray & I could have wished for! We love it! You captured everything with such great detail. We have shared the instant film with many of our friend and family and received numerous compliments on it. We also showed the entire film to our parents and they loved it too! Thanks again! Alexis & Ray :)
