    Epic Sedona Arizona Red Rock Wedding Video

    There are experiences in life that are unforgettable. Cameron and Victoria’s wedding weekend was one of those moments in time where we just stood there, not believing what we were seeing (or what we were capturing behind the lens).

    Thank you to Victoria and Cameron for inviting us on this journey with you both as you begin your married life together. And BIG thanks to Bon Miller for showing us some SERIOUS locations to shoot. I’m still like “uhh you get to shoot here all. the. time???” I’m green with envy, y’all.

    Are you getting married in Sedona? You are? Ahhh – well guess what? We travel! Contact us to learn more – we LOVE the West, so we’ll be sure to cut you a deal. :)

  • 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.

    Treasury on the Plaza Wedding Film

    Rob + Leslie // Teaser from Gator Bride Videography on Vimeo.

    As Kyle and I drove away from Rob and Leslie’s wedding, the one word that came to mind was “authentic.” Every moment felt so true and honest… they planned their wedding like one big party and sprinkled in all these beautiful, intentional (and hilarious) moments. From Rob walking down the aisle to Montell Jordan’s “This is how we do it,” to a giant T-Rex crashing their reception. There was a surprise around each corner for their guests.

    Congratulations you two! We hope you enjoy this preview of your day! Sending you both so much love.
