I hope bride's mom has a sense of humor

Here's a real short clip from a wedding we're editing. The bride's mother is in the elegant gold dress.

The best visual was her walking down the aisle. The dress was cut so that the big tatoo on her left breast was clearly visible. I guess she was going for the subtle trailer park look.
I'm not too worried about their reaction. I told the bride over the phone, and she said "f*** that bitch...leave it in".

I leave all that stuff in, if they wanted boring they should have just gone with pictures. Oh, did I say that?

Hey Bruce, btw, what stabilizer did you use, and what light kit.

She said that about her own mother? Oh boy, nice family...

Erm.....funny and all that but how can you show something like this if you get paid to do a professional job?

It's like the Police and FBI coming on and releasing mugshots of who they have arrested this week.

It is one thing to relate funny stories or experiences about your profession but to actually publically show and have ridicule a client?

I've watched the clip twice, and can't find anything wrong with it! Quite the reverse. We're paid to capture the day,that's MY belief, and that's been done. In fact I'm going to be trying some of that style myself.
You can't please eveyone, so just please yourself, and the Bride, of course,lol.

Mike.

Yeah, one of the few times I ever asked about a specific incident was when the bride's sister ran her toungue up the brides leg, twice even. The bride thought it was a hoot and I left it in.

Not sure I'd go as far as to compare this to gov't agency activities, but true enough -- this is a public forum viewed by thousands of people all over the world. Gov't agencies may be the least of Bruce's worries if that rough-n-tough mother and her buddies discover the link and don't share the humor in public exposure and ridicule. (Always funnier when it's someone else, eh?)


BTW, I watched it three times to make sure I wasn't missing something...all I saw was people just having fun dancing and being silly at a family wedding reception. I think I'm a pretty tame fellow and I've certainly had wilder parties than what was shown in that clip. I agree with those who shrug their shoulders and wonder what the fuss is about. But again, let's hope any of "mom's" friends who might have close relationships with deadly weapons feel similarly.

;-)

From here, a shrug and a "meh." No longer shoot weddings, but when I did, I've seen much worse (inebriated shaving cream fights and the like). Kind of ho-hum about this clip (sorry, Bruce).

Steven.
That "sister act" that you mentioned sounds interesting.
I was using a tripod on a dolly, and luckilly it was a smooth floor so that I could move around. I use a 50 watt Frezzi on camera light powered by an Anton bauer dionic 90. Most of these venues are so dark, that without the light, you'd have nothing.
Mike,
Thanks for the ote of confidence.

As far as my choice of leaving stuff like that in, here's my take- there's loads of guys doing beautifull, cinematic stuff, and I'm also trying to better my style. But for me to enjoy this grueling, underpaid work, I have to enjoy what I'm doing and have some fun. I like to talk to people from behind the camera, sometimes joking and engaging them. To me, the camera and technology isn't the be all and end all. The camera is a tool which allows me to interact with and capture people. What I shot was very typical of what went on that day. They had their fun, and now it's my turn.
