We are quite picky here at K&C when it comes to wedding videos. We have seen entirely too many cheesy cuts, awkward poses and strange angle shots. However the videographers for this wedding have captured every moment so perfectly. Heck, we wish we were at the wedding with them!
This was the winter wedding video of NASCAR driver Brian Scott, who had all the guests in tears with his heartfelt vows, his bride Whitney Kay and her 3-year-old daughter Brielle. Brian particularly won us all over when he read some vows to little Brielle, his new step daughter.
"Brielle, can I tell you something? I promise to always hold your hand and skip with you down the street and bring comfort to your life," announced Scott holding back the tears.
Why we like this video
It felt like a little mini movie. We love how the video started with the grooms vows in the ceremony and cut back through the couples shared wedding day experience. We were captivated from the start and we wanted to see how this incredible moment was to play out. It was ONLY 6 1/2 minutes. It was long enough to capture the day properly, but short enough to watch over and over and over with your family and friends. No one wants to sit through long edit cuts and entire ceremony videos.
The camera was steady. It effortlessly captures the emotion of the guests and the couple. We love that there are shots from multiple angles and you don't feel like you've missed any special moment. There are also wonderful panning shots of the surrounding mountains and wedding reception before the guests arrived. As viewers you are really given a good taste of what the wedding looked and felt like.
The music was not intrusive. It has been elegantly timed with the shots and extremely suitable for the setting and style of wedding. We like how the music starts completely as instrumental in the first minute and once the title pops up the music becomes slightly more upbeat.
The wedding looked awesome. We know just how much fun all the guest were having because the videographer captured all this emotion through wonderful shots of guests laughing, dancing and kissing. These shots were not over the top or intrusive. They were short, clear and elegant. We got to see all the gorgeous décor, the flowers, the lighting, the fun activities (loving the outdoor pit fire for a winter wedding!), horse and cart transport and the couples photo shoot.
When picking your videographer make sure you see samples of their work and ask yourself, 'is this a movie I'd like to watch again?' If you can't instantly say 'yes', then they probably are not the right videographers for you. Feel free to contact us if you need some more advice on how to find your videographer and ask the right questions.
