Greek Wedding highlights

Hello from Greece. Me and my brother start to shoot weddings from 2006 (one year). We spend a lot time to practice and watching other works and techniques before get into it! The weddings in Greece is very different, the church is very dark & old (sometimes over 500 years), the preperation is a crazy thing :) and the party is a mess! 
Everything going in “light speed” and there is a lot of stress…

Here a baptism in a very very old monastery. The baptisms is a small process (about 40 mins) but very important:

The other 2 clips is from 2 weddings…

Any opinion is valuable for us and sorry for my terrible English…

The links posted here get me to the site, but the movies don't load. The word "Loading" shows up, but nothing is actually coming through.

All the links at your site connect okay to other pages with text and photos. Unfortunately, I can't read a word of Greek. (Typical American -- I only know one language.)

I agree, the camera movement was done very well and really added a cinema feel to the videos. I am also curious as to what camera stabilizer was used to obtain those shots.

Very nice, I also love your smooth camera moves. John, I believe the soundtrack is from Pearl Harbor.

I liked your camera moves too. The pacing of your edits/transitions as well as the speed of your camera movement matched the music tempo very well. For being new in this, sounds like you have some nice gear.
