Very dynamic. Great visuals and motion, but a bit too much focused on the photo-session. The beginning had more of a story going, but the end kind of devolved into beauty shots. I would have liked to hear/see more of the reception, but that's just how I roll. I think you did a bang-up job with the visuals you captured, the tight editing and interesting angles.

Hi, I live and work in Italy. I've being doing weddings when I was younger now I do corporate.. but.. I am curious. This is a normal wedding video for US? Or is it a sort of "trailer"? I am asking because in Italy an average wedding video is 25 minutes and can go up to 40-45. We have audio from the church, the promises, exchange of rings, a big photo part and then all the restaurant where "the" rule is to show at least once every person invited so in the video you see people around the table or dancing. We shoot even food (special served dishes) etc... and we end up in "deep night" (if the wedding was in the afetrnoon) with a brindisi, fireworks (or similar).

I like very much the attention on photography, depth of focus, and movement with the steadycam. Here is done just with the camera on your shoulder (but obviously to have 25 edited minutes we shoot sometimes 2.5 hours of footage).

What camera were you using.. and what lenses?

Hey Marcello,
Thanks for your input. Actually we have over 2hours of the full final video edit but what you see here is called a wedding video highlights. We take the BEST of the BEST clips through out the wedding day and squeeze it into 3-5min song of their choice.

We use Sony Z1u cameras with the RedRock micro DOF adapter with NIKON lenses. Nothing speacial. Also have the Glidecam 4000pro.

We usually end up with 8-10 hours of footage (2 videographers) and the final is around 2hours.

Take care!

Thanks.. It's the first time I see weddings done with 35mm lenses...
Actually is a nice piece of equipment the RedRock.
Can you shoot fast with it on (fast as needed in a wedding). I do corporate but still sometimes I almost don't have time to put the shot on focus!
