Genevieve and Derek are getting married in a couple of weeks, so we thought it would be fun to document their story, how they met, what they love most about each other, etc. I had such a great time getting to know them better and learning their interesting story that I have decided to offer this type of video in the future- so if anyone is interested- let me know!

I traveled to Cape Cod for Katie and Dan's wedding and had a great time. It was a perfect wedding for a perfect couple. Prep began with Updo's by Ann on hair and Ligia with make up. Once again I had the pleasure of working with Leah Haydock on photography... so fun to work with and her photographs are amazing! Both ceremony and reception were held at The Ridge Club. Startdust the band kept everyone moving throughout the night. For their montage below, I experimented with something different in using audio from their ceremony mixed in- I think it will be a new editing style moving forward (cinematic) that gives more of a movie trailer feel.

Danielle and Jason got married at the Montdale Country Club. The couple had planned a beautiful outdoor ceremony with lake in the background. However, a few minutes before the ceremony mother nature had a different plan so we had to put plan B (under the patio) into effect, and then plan C in the gazebo, why not a combo of B & C (always good to have a back up plan). In the end it turned out great with the couple surrounded by wedding party shielded from the elements and guests overlooking from the patio. And just as the bride was safe undercover...the sun came out. The ceremony was followed by pictures on the property before entering the ballroom for the reception were everyone had a blast!

Last Friday Nick and Marry tied the knot in Geneva in front of 40 of their closet friends and family at Ventosa Vineyards. It has been a while since I filmed a smaller wedding, but was very nice, relaxed and Mary and Nick seemed very focused on one another. Rev. Kris Miller conducted the service and Chrissy Albright was there to capture all the shots. It was a tough choice in deciding on a song from their selections for the highlights... but keeping it simple "ain't that love" seemed to sum up the two of them together

For New Years Eve I traveled to Boston for the wedding of Claire and Eddy. What a great way to bring in 2011. Even though the city was covered with some snow, temps were in the 50s which is obviously almost unheard of for New England in December. Preparation started at Claires house, then it was off to St. Gregory's Church to meet up with Eddy. The evening ended with a New Years eve style reception and countdown to 2011. Dj Peter Accolla played the tunes of the night. Photography was by Bob Pattision who was great fun to work with.

A little break from weddings... Gazella Performance and Wellness Studio in Skaneateles, Ny needed a promo video for their website so it was a perfect opportunity to work on something different. Gazella offers an array of services from group classes, personal training, nutrition and wellness counseling to children's dance. It was a challenge to fit it all into a 2 min video, but we had a blast putting it together. Enjoy!
