It’s all about perspective. And I don’t mean just angles and framing. I’m talking about real, genuine, life perspective. For example, when I am shooting a wedding and I get a shot of the bride hugging her grandpa. To them, at the time, the hug is nice and all but it’s just a hug. No big deal. But now lets change perspective to a few months later. Grandpa has passed away. Now, a hug that wasn’t that big of a deal is something that bride would pay any price to relive again. Unfortunately I have had more than one bride contact me with this exact scenario. They both asked me for any and all footage I had of grandpa on camera. It didn’t matter if it was uneventful, out of focus, or shaky. Perspective changed, and the footage was priceless. I think about this stuff all the time. Not in a sad or depressed way, but in a grateful way. I think that we are lucky enough to be here and now with the people we love, and one day we might give anything to relive this very moment. So enjoy it now!
I have been married to my gorgeous wife for nine adventurous years. My kids make me laugh out loud every day. What inspires me most is moments, real, honest moments. On top of being a total nerd about wedding videos, I also specialize in creating premium documentary photography in the world of UFC fighters. Strange contrast to shoot weddings and fighters, I know.
