One of the really fun things about doing what we do in this day and age is that it’s become so easy to share ideas and images. Not only our own stuff, but other people’s as well! And so a few months back, Paul and myself joined Pinterest and started pinning away, and getting inspired. There really is so much beautiful stuff on there!
When I started really getting into it, I thought: wow, this is neat for me to keep track of what I like, but it would also be a great way to share resources, tips, tricks, and other things, with our couples. And so for the past little while, I’ve been telling everyone about those awesome boards of ours. We hope you enjoy them, and that, who knows, maybe some of the things you see on there make it into your wedding!
Warning: Pinterest is seriously addictive! It can consume you, and you may find yourself pinning in the middle of the night to try and combat insomnia. But don’t be fooled: you can never pin enough, it’s like a bottomless pit… of awesomeness!
I’ve put links to some of our boards below. Just click and enjoy. And send us a link to your boards if you also pin!
We’ve been excited about posting this one on the blog for a while because, quite honestly, we think these are some of the nicest wedding video images we’ve made since launching One² Film a few months back. Marsha and John were such an amazing couple and, when their edit turned out even better than we expected, we thought ‘wow, this needs to be shared’. A few emails later, when our friend over at The Wedding Co. proposed to feature the edit on their blog the following day, we were totally stoked!
All in all, I guess all I wanted to do with this blog post is communicate our level of excitement about Marsha and John’s wedding highlights film; they’re amazing people, we wish them all the best, and hope that these images of their classy, green, and contemporary wedding will wow you as much they wow-ed us. Enjoy!
We featured Ewa and Alex’s engagement photos on the blog on June 5th, but as you can imagine, video sometimes takes a little bit more time, so it wasn’t quite ready right there and then. But a month after, it’s ready and approved by Ewa (and Alex, I imagine… hehe!) and I can share it with you! This is a no-dialogue/interview edit. To me, the neatest thing about it is Ewa’s slightly off-key choice of music (‘The Only One’ by The Black Keys)… at first I thought it may be too dramatic, but after cutting images to it, and giving the piece a slightly vintage-y look, I actually really like the effect!
Well, I won’t keep you any longer… just wanted to share. Maybe it’ll give some of you ideas (i.e. if you really like your dogs, why not bring them along?). If you like it, leave a comment or share it. Or ask questions if you want? In any case, that’s it for now. Take care! – Christian
November 12, 2012: last wedding of the year, the weather was still nice in Toronto, the venue was gorgeous, and the couple were friends of a friend. Perfect conditions, so it was all good!
And in fact, the day was a breeze – as it usually is! – as Bowen, MK and myself (the One² Film team for this one) captured everything from the make-up pow-wow to the tea ceremony, from the boutonnière installation to a math game designed to determine wether engineers or accountants were better with numbers – as it turns out, the engineers cheated and were disqualified (lol). There were even teddybears strapped to the hood of an SUV, and a lot of games that consisted in making Patrick, the groom, suffer (carrying his best man while walking on a reflexology mat?). But he survived it all and, at the end of the day, what I remember wasn’t any specific event that occurred that day, but those little candid moments when they’d look at each other in between games, and smile.
I wish Wendy and Patrick all the best in 2012, and for many years to come. And the same to you too! Cheers,
This fall we wanted to go with the kids to the Toronto Zoo… Turns out that they changed the times on us. So there we were, 5pm in the afternoon, beautiful fall day and nowhere to go. We drove around for a bit and finally stumbled on a small playground. The kids frowns turned to smiles and they hit the swings. I had my camera and was itching to do a short video with it. Here’s the result:
