This blog post kicks off a new series in what we're calling The Nice Shot Videographer Roundup. Every so often, we'll be posting links and commentary to recent wedding films that we love. Please feel free to post wedding videography that you love in the comments below.
Here are some of our recent favorites from across the country:
1. Matt Forrey, at Forrey Films, has such a great sense for color and composition. His occasional use of slow motion -- as with the little girls in the following film -- is also particularly skillful. We loved this post from Matt on a recent wedding that he filmed in Montana: http://forreyfilms.com/blog/2015/6/18/rya-and-joshs-montana-wedding
2. Nick and Colin, at Blue Kite Cinema, show real dedication to capturing the backstory of their clients. You don't just get the day of the wedding. You get the story of who the bride and groom really are. In this recent film, Blue Kite Cinema opens with images of drawings that were made by the bride's students. We also really enjoy that Blue Kite Cinema includes quite a few shots that seem to have a "hand-held" quality to them. It reinforces the relaxed, creative vibe. Check out the film here: http://bluekitecinema.com/jessica-jon-the-ashford-estate-nj/
3. Ning Wong Studios continues to prove its creativity and ingenuity by filming couples as they watch their own same-day edits. It's meta-meta filmmaking at its best. In a recent Facebook post, Ning shared one of his favorite examples of these films. We love it. Check it out here: https://vimeo.com/97198107
Do you have any recent wedding films that you love? Did you make one that you'd like to include? Post a link to it in the comments, or shoot it my way. I might include it in our next Nice Shot Videographer Roundup.
