We now return you to your regularly scheduled blogger. Danielle did a great job explain why a videographer should be a top level priority when planning a wedding, but now it is time to recap another event from last year before the world went crazy.
Kacie & Alex are the kind of couple that has built a foundation for their marriage with over 12 years of dating. Their love story is described as the greatest in the history Pickney, MI. In the crazy year that was 2020 and so early in the start of business, it was great to book such an amazing couple that trusted me to capture their wedding day. Covid had caused change after change to the wedding planning process and the couple rolled with each new regulation like it was nothing, because at the end of the day they were too focused on their love for each other.
So with that being said you couldn't help but want to produce an incredible video for them. From a professional stand point this was the first time I offered drone service, and the venue at Waldenwoods Resort was perfect for it. The lush lakefront woodland area hosted a large outdoor tent wedding. It was August in Michigan so the weather was perfect, at the time the restrictions allowed the wedding to happen at all, something that would remain true for the rest of 2020. If you've reviewed my work at all you'll clear recognize the most notable moment of the day. Kacie and Alex's sunset photo has been my favorite shot from all my weddings for a long time. If my never brides are reading this, Im sorry but you just can't beat a Michigan sunset in the summer. Florida gets this type of sunset more often if Im being honest, but that's what makes the shot so valuable coming from one of my Michigan weddings.
Now in 2021 as the world is still recovering I cherish my memories that I was able to make with my first few films under Martin Media Production. Kacie and Alex are expecting a child, while another couple just had their first born last week. These are the moments that I value as my role of capturing love. Like Danielle said in her blog, "It would be nice to show our son what happened on our wedding day", and while we don't have the chance... I hope the couples I work with still cherish the videos I've created and someday, years from now, after sleepless nights, and countless diaper changes... I hope they pull up their video and remember not just the moments but also the emotions and feelings of their wedding day. Thats why I do what I do for a living, that's the part I love.
