Rhett + Nicole | MUST SEE Wedding Highlights | Serendipity Studios
Travis Cossel Travis Cossel is offline April 25th, 2011, 01:00 AM

It's easy to get excited about filming a wedding in the Florida Keys with a sunset backdrop and fire jugglers and junkanoo performers and fireworks over the ocean. What's even more exciting is when the couple is genuinely rediscovering true love through each other. For us, a visually-stunning wedding is nothing without a story of heart and soul.

We've been so excited to share Rhett and Nicole's wedding highlights video, but we had to wait until after it premiered at their 2nd wedding reception back in Ohio. Well, without further adieu, here is their wedding highlights video. Enjoy!

Re: Rhett + Nicole | MUST SEE Wedding Highlights | Serendipity Studios

Totally loved the sunset and last shots but felt there were too many tracking shots and not enough shots or connection with the couple. I like to watch a clip and feel like I know the couple really well by the end of it. But then with a location and weather like that, I can see why you deviated :)

Re: Rhett + Nicole | MUST SEE Wedding Highlights | Serendipity Studios

Gianni | Thanks for watching. We use Canon 7D's and a Canon 60D on our productions. We use Final Cut Pro for editing. For tracking and flying shots we use the Cinevate Atlas 10 and the Steadicam Merlin respectively.

Richard | Thanks for the comments. We used more tracking shots in the beginning of this video because it fits so well with the mood and pace of the music. Those shots were preplanned weeks before the wedding. Regarding the bride and groom, they basically got ready by themselves and didn't do a first look or a photosession together ... and both of them were also fairly quiet and reserved. So I think that may be why you felt the way you did. Personally I think the bride's heartfelt words at the end really opens their story to the world, but maybe not everyone catches that.

Nicholas | Thanks!

Don | You know it! I love FL .. everything about it ... well, except that people don't know how to drive.

Roger | Thanks, buddy!

Re: Rhett + Nicole | MUST SEE Wedding Highlights | Serendipity Studios

Thanks Travis for your answer, not videocamera at all, only DSLR.Do you think is a risk.
Particularyconcerning the change of the lens when you are not quite like a wedding,did you find problems about that and wich lens you use?
I also asked the title and the author of the song that I like a lot
Thanks
Gianni

Re: Rhett + Nicole | MUST SEE Wedding Highlights | Serendipity Studios

Dimitris | Thanks!

Gianni | Yes, it's a bit more risky using DSLR versus traditional videocamera. For us it is worth the risk. Regarding lenses, the key is to have a plan on what lens you will use in what situation. Believe it not, we only use a handful of lenses when we shoot. There is a lot of talk right now about having a bagful of primes and changing lenses all the time. We don't take that approach. Also, regarding the music, that's one of the few things I won't discuss. d;-)

Re: Rhett + Nicole | MUST SEE Wedding Highlights | Serendipity Studios

Greg | Thank you so much. We do pour our hearts into every wedding we film. Thank you so much for noticing and for the comments. d;-)

Gianni | Please just respect my decision not to discuss music. Thanks. As for lenses, we used 5 lenses on this shoot (although 1 of them was used for only 1 shot). Our 'go-to' lenses are the Canon 17-55mm 2.8, the Canon 24-70mm 2.8 and the Canon 70-200mm 2.8. We also used a Tokina (I think) 11mm for one shot and a Sigma 100mm macro for a few shots.

Re: Rhett + Nicole | MUST SEE Wedding Highlights | Serendipity Studios

Wow all fast lens...all 2.8.....but you have 2 lens for one camera and 3 for other or do you change during....you need time for that...also to put the camera on the Glide or on the Steady...how many people work with you?
Ok for the music...I respect you but I like a lot....a lot..

Re: Rhett + Nicole | MUST SEE Wedding Highlights | Serendipity Studios

We shoot with 4 cameras and 2 people. We alternate the lenses between the cameras as necessary during the day, but we try to limit the switching to avoid getting dust or debris inside the camera. During the ceremony for example, we may do one lens change or none depending on the setup. For Steadicam we use the Canon 17-55mm.
