Okay, first I have to ask ... was the tear real or fake? d;-)

As for other comments .. you had a great collection of beautiful shots with plenty of emotion in their faces. I only wish there was more of a story working with the shots, although maybe I'm just missing it. The music at the end faded out too abruptly.

Otherwise though, beautiful images and a very engaging couple.

Travis, thank you!

The tear was off course real, partly because of a cold wind, part as my directorial approach,
I can't stand fake though, as for a movie approach , it really doesn't matter if the tear is fake in a process of making it, as long as the audience believes, involves in emotional experience, or "suspends the disbelief"!

There is no real story here, it a vignette of images on a love story theme.

I am fixing the music, the encoding cut it short : (

If you didn't like it, I would like to hear/read the reasons why?

Is it too dramatic for a wedding video, Love Story?

Feedback appreciated, that's how we grow!

Added slightly modified clip, in .mov (actually .wmv colors seem to me better)

Taking a break from packing to make a comment! I really liked it. Without a story line, it did start to drag a little in the middle, but you had a great collection of amazing shots that kept pulling me back. Those two seemed very natural in front of a camera, which is GREAT for you!

I've only just seen it, I was away at a wedding when you posted - that's my excuse for not commenting on it.

I like it; with that music it holds together OK. Some great shots and location(s).
Anyway, since when did lack of solid storyline become a reason for not releasing a film?
I've sat through some multi-million dollar films with pretty lousy storylines, and the music video industry would die a death if they had to have coherent storylines. I just enjoyed the combination of well shot images and the music.

No, it didn't drag for me at all. Good cinematography keeps people attached even when there is little story line. Very well shot but I think you especially directed the couple very well.
The first time I watched it, I thought you could have left out 1 or 2 of the repetitive fly-over shots, but watching it again, I think it fits with the music.
