I couldn’t wait to film and edit this wedding! As soon as Amber contacted us and told us her and Justin’s story, I just knew this was going to be a fun wedding. Amber lived in South Africa as a missionary and met Justin while she was there. Not only is Justin cool because of his South African accent, but he is a very talented and successful recording artist. Upon talking to Justin about my idea to film him singing one of his songs to use for the highlights video, he told about the song featured in this video, titled “You”. He wrote it secretly for Amber and she wouldn’t even know about it until their first dance! We had fun keeping the filming of “You” a secret until NOW! I loved how it turned out, especially how cool it is that he is sitting on the steps of the chapel. Very intimate, and very honest. Their ceremony was very God centered and their reception was a blast! I love parties at the Pewter Rose Bistro in Charlotte. Very eclectic, and they know how to set up an inviting reception environment with style. We also enjoyed working with Darrin at D&J Photography. We hope to team up with him again soon. Enjoy your wedding highlights video Amber and Justin, and thanks for allowing us to combine our creative outlets with yours. The song is absolutely beautiful! Leave your comments people! And if you are interested in more of Justin’s work, you can check out his music on his website and on itunes.

P.S. The butterfly was totally random! It wouldn’t leave us alone, so we decided to try to use him to our advantage. Turned out to be a big asset to the video! I think it goes great with the lyrics if you listen closely.

I don’t think I have ever seen a more excited bride and groom on their wedding day! Every part of the day was”hyped”, almost as if it were a college basketball game. And naturally, Ansley and Andrew were OK with that, seeing as how both of them played College Basketball and definitely set the record as our tallest couple filmed to date. We loved it! You can totally see their excitement shine through in the video. Their entrance at the reception was to the Chicago Bulls Theme Song . It was hard not to put down my camera and give them a chest bump when they walked by. It was so exciting to be there, and you could tell everyone around them was excited and happy for them both too. It was our first time working with Amanda Caldwell Photography and she was an absolute blast to work together with! We look forward to teaming up with her again, and her pictures are stunning! We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect summer after noon on Birkdale Country Club’s Golf Course. Thanks Ansley & Andrew for letting us celebrate with you. You really make our job fun. Leave your comments people!

Highlights Song by James Morrison – Buy It Here

Run, Matt, Run!

Last week, Matt ran his 2nd Half Marathon! Every November, Wilmington holds a 13 mile Battleship Run to raise money for the USS North Carolina proudly perched in downtown Wilmington. It honors the veterans who served among the ship during World War II. Here are some pictures of Matt in action. Luckily he didn’t have a wedding to film that day! But all this is training for the running around he’ll be doing for 2009 weddings! (For a full album you can go HERE)
