I'm a wedding videographer and... well... here's my wedding video!

Weird to be a wedding videographer for going on 7 years and finally get married yourself... only to edit your own wedding video! Talk about getting emotional while editing a wedding video... that was an extremely emotional experience.

I had a couple "non-professional wedding videographers" (aka friends) shoot our wedding and I had the challenge of editing from two cameras that had just enough footage to produce what I came up with. Still super stoked with the way it turned out.

Let me know what you guys think!

That's pretty amazing that you've been filming/editing weddings as a single man for that long! Wow. Usually people get into this business AFTER they've gotten, married. Way to break the mold, lol.

As for the video, I'll admit I didn't watch every minute of it. I watched it from beginning to end, skipping a bit ahead now and then (and skipping backwards sometimes too). I probably saw about 75% of it or so. I'd watch it all but I'm working late as it is already. d;-)

Anyways, given that the footage was fairly shaky and not always composed well, I think you did a good job. I think it was a great idea to go with an "old home film" style of edit because it fit the footage well. You created a character for the video and stuck with it all the through pretty much. Nice.

I have to say that my first wedding edit was my own wedding, and I sure wish I could film it and edit it differently now! Thanks for sharing, man.
