Lori ♥ Kevin ... SDE

It's time for me to catch up on blogging our wonderful 2012 weddings! So here is one of my favourite videos of the year. Poppy, happy, fun to watch. Lori has her own personal esthetic, lush and gorgeous but calm and true to herself. Kevin seems to bridge the gap between East side swagger and Yaletown sensibility. Theirs was a day of kites, perfect weather, and a heaving dance floor.

Filming this wedding was interesting. The palette matches the colour of much of the day: faded pastels and a slightly washed out look. Using our flat picture profile and desaturating even more was the perfect match to an overcast day in Steveston.

And for the first time I shot a lot of slow motion, to integrate with the regular motion footage. The newer Canon DLSRs can shoot 60 frames per second, which can be slowed to 24 frames a second to produce 40% slomo. This was great for the kite scenes, allowing them to hover a bit more. I mixed slomo with regular motion to keep the impact of the change in speeds, rather than just slow everything down with a long series of slomo shots.

It was lovely to capture Lori and Kevin's wedding, and we wish them many more days of happiness and perfect kite weather.
