I’m very much a girl who has been planning my wedding since I was a kid, and I always imagined having a winter wedding around the holidays. I haven’t yet filmed a holiday wedding during my career as a wedding videographer, but I would really love to! After I participated in my first styled shoot in May, I reached out to Lisa from Lisa Robin Photography and got her on board to create our own.
It started as a super small shoot - a few things from amazon, maybe a couple vendors, all shot in Lisa’s back yard - but it quickly grew beyond my imagination. We got a stunning gown from Love & Lace Bridal Boutique, which is an exclusive premiere gown at their location in Edgewater, MD. We got all the men’s attire from Christopher Schafer Clothier in Baltimore, who also runs an amazing nonprofit called Sharp Dressed Man. I sent our model into the suit fitting expecting a neutral beige suit, and he walked out with gray & red plaid! He looked so sharp I knew it had to be the suit we used; I just hoped it would compliment everything else we had planned. I feel so blessed to have found our hair and makeup artist, florist, jeweler, calligrapher, bakery, and so on. I filmed the wedding of Meaghan & Jeff in May. When they volunteered to model for us I knew there was no one better for the job.
What we ended up with was an absolutely stunning shoot backed by a team of truly talented vendors. I never thought that I - a wedding videographer - had the power to create a styled shoot. I thought only stylists and photographers could execute this. Needless to say I am beyond proud of the shoot and these vendors, and am madly in love with the video I created to showcase it all!
