Nice colors and what a location! This is one of the times I would prefer a very wide dof to see the sea in the background instead of it being a blur during the vows, but that's just my personal taste :)

My last one for this year is this Saturday and it's going to be one I"ll remember, I have to start shooting at 6 in the morning and it ends at 1 at night, add a total of 4 hours driving to that to get there and back home and I"m 24 hours on my feet that day...

Thanks Noa! I see what you're saying about the vows. It was a beautiful location but it was also a very early in the day wedding (2:00 p.m.) in bright sunlight so that was a tough challenge.

Wow, sounds like you got a tough one ahead. I did one this year that was similar (arrived at 6AM, left at 11PM) except I didn't have all that travel time! Good luck!

Thanks.

Yes, definitely. Along with the highlight film, they get an edited feature which includes the full ceremony, speeches, dances, extended montages etc. They usually average about 40 minutes or so.

Thanks for watching.

Love your work!

Just curious, but how is a full edit just 40 minutes? You said it includes the full ceremony, but a ceremony can last from 15 minutes to an hour for a full Catholic mass. In my last wedding, the FOB did his toast for 27 minutes, and everyone's toasts was a combined 55 minutes. (And they were boring as hell, too. The FOB managed to compare his daughter's life to Charles Lindbergh, and it made absolutely no sense at all.)

I can rarely get these under 90 minutes, so curious what your secret is.

Well, there's no real secret...I just haven't shot any really long ceremonies yet. All of my ceremonies have been 10-20 minutes total including the processional. I also haven't done a Catholic church wedding yet. Working in Southern California, most of my weddings are outdoors and short.

I did have one wedding with two ceremonies (christian & persian) but even that was only about 25 minutes total. Same thing for the speeches, where most have been around 10 minutes once I edit them. My longest feature so far has been an hour.

I'm sure I will shoot longer ceremonies & speeches in the future which would then make the feature longer but for now I've been fortunate to have shorter ones. My goal is to make the feature as tightly edited as possible so it's not boring. Of course, there's not much you can do when someone is giving a toast like that one you experienced…that sounds awful!

Thanks for watching!
