  • FCPX Wedding Color Grade | Before & After

    The Resort at Longboat Key Club Beach Wedding Video

    Kyle did an incredible job with this color correction. I still can’t get over how amazing it looks compared to the “before” footage!

    Danny and Erika’s day was pretty overcast and cloudy. We were LOVING the even lighting, but achieving the correct white balance became next to impossible in the late evening as the sun went down (and we lost whatever small light we had). Our cameras simply couldn’t compensate for the very blue lighting.

    That being said – it’s so important to us that our couple’s film accurately represents not just how it looks but how it FELT on their day. Even though it was a bit of a cloudy, wintery day in Florida… it FELT warm and sunny. Which is why Kyle chose to take the color grade in that direction. 

    I can’t even begin to tell you how many hours this color grade took! But, you know what? Our couples are WORTH IT.

    “She makes me laugh every day. Even the days when I don’t want to laugh and I’m frustrated with something, she finds a way to put a smile on my face. She brings an indescribable joy to my life that I just couldn’t live without.”

    Ian, we so so get it. Audra is a catch and Ian best be counting his lucky stars that he caught her! Her smile, her laugh and sense of humor, how welcoming and full of grace… those DANCE MOVES – Audra is one incredibly beautiful person inside and out. Ian, you’re okay too. ;)

    We feel like we’ve know you both all our lives, yet we just met. You two are perfection together. We could feel your love for each other and those around you through every second of your day. Yeah guys, Ian and Audra are the full package. We feel so lucky and thankful to have met you both… and so freaking honored to have captured your day.

    Let’s do it all over again in a few years, okurrr?

    “I used to pray a lot about my future wife. Not just when I was in high school or college, but even when I was little boy… you were the person I was praying for. I have no doubt in my mind I was thinking of you for all of those years though I’d never seen your face.” – Ben

    STOPPPP ITTT! Cue alllll the ugly cries!

    Ben and Samantha’s story is so deeply rooted in St. Augustine. This is the city where they met, where they dated, where they fell in love, where he proposed… and finally, where they were married. We have a new found love for St. Augustine, after seeing it through Ben and Samantha’s eyes. AND morning weddings got me all in a tizzy y’all. Watching this sleepy city wake up with that beautiful morning light.

    Ben and Samantha, we hope you both enjoy – you two have my heart for reals. So much love.

    “I was scared to death that no one would ever love me, that I was broken, that I wasn’t worthy of being loved. And he knew I was broken and he took me in and just loved me for who I was… crazy and all. I knew that this is it, I’ve found my match. I’ve found my soulmate.” – Amy

    My heart guys… overflowing with joy and love for these two! They tied the knot last night, surprising all of their friends and family who thought they were attending an engagement party!
