Hi Travis,

Thanks for your kind words. I know what you mean. The mother talking about how she felt when they first brought her daughter to her in the hospital is priceless. It's one of the great things about this business. Getting the opportunity to know the client and helping them express their love to each other. I just wish we could have had her come to the studio for the VO.

When the Mom and Bride watched it on the wedding day there were a lot of tears, but happy tears. The Mom's VO was a surprise to the Bride.

I understand that, but think of it this way as well. That mom now has this great story of how she had to record the audio while in the bathroom. Sometimes the 'not so best' circumstances make for the 'best' stories. d;-)

I wouldnt worry about where you got the audio. In fact, I think the
studio is the WORST environment. You don't get the raw emotion
and feeling in their voices when the day is gone. I love it
when their voices crack as they start to cry and snifle. I leave
it in.

Tulsa is lucky to have you. I love the balance -- I didn't get motion sickness! It looks like you art-directed many of the shots. I'm finding that when the bride looks into our cameras it's a powerful clip.

I also love the voice over. I hadn't thought of having the mom do it.

Hi Travis,

So it's not just the destination but the journey. That's a good way of looking at it.

Hi Scott,

Thanks. We have had some good sucess getting raw emotion in the studio, but I know what you mean. The emotional element on the day of the wedding is great to capture.

Hi Dana,

Thanks for the kind words. I generally don't want the Bride to look into the lens, but on the few occasions that I direct them to look right at the lens, I agree with you, it is powerful. I could be wrong, but I think I learned that trick from Chris Watson.
