Styled wedding Video

Thanks to Video Vault, you can now take a look at the video clip from our styled vintage wedding photography shoot.  As I mentioned in a previous blog post, the shoot was a collaboration by a few different businesses in and around the Geelong area. The video obviously show’s what happened on the day, but as we all know, a lot of the magic that occurs in photos these days happens well after the photos are taken. Having said that, I am a firm believer that 95% of the work needs to be done when the photo is taken. Anything else that happens in Photoshop later is purely there to enhance the photo, not make it better. Incase you missed it and would like to see a few images that were taken on the day, click Here to view my previous blog post. I think that sometimes couples who are organising their wedding don’t realise how important it is to book businesses that can work well together. For instance, I always make a point of asking couples who is doing their flowers, hair and make up, mainly because what I need to get done at the brides house prior to the service, is so reliant on these other services. I’m sure that anyone else that collaborated on this project would tell you the exact same thing. Always talk to your photographer and tell them what other services you are using, because it can make a big difference on the day. Thank you also once again to Beachside Blooms Florist, Embrace Bridal Boutique, Ivy Creations Hair by Harbour, Oakdene Winery and obviously Video Vault for all their work on the collaboration.

Styled vintage wedding Geelong

I was fortunate enough to be part of a styled vintage bridal shoot in Geelong recently. This is a bit different to a wedding day in that the hair and make up stylists are on hand as is the dress supplier and the florist. Normally on a wedding day, it’s usually just myself and the videographer. Now I know what most of you are thinking, not another vintage wedding. I know, I know, that’s the trend at the moment..that and cutting off the couples heads (really??), which believe me, you will never see one of this photos here on this blog..ever!! Our vintage shoot was a little different though because even though that was the feel that we all set out to achieve, I was allowed to do whatever I liked. Now that’s the sort of shoot I like!! So basically I could put my own spin on the shoot. Perfect!! So I could photograph with vintage in mind, but add my own touch of Hollywood #glamour to the photos.  The location was  chosen, very carefully mind you, and we headed down to Oakdene. For those of you that don’t know where this is, it’s in Wallington, about 20 minutes out of Geelong.  There were so many spots to choose from where I could set up, I think I could’ve spent the whole weekend photographing different looks there!! The flowers were designed by Shelley from Beachside Blooms. They fitted the look perfectly we were after perfectly. Any wonder Shelley and her team have won the Australian Bridal Industry awards multiple times over the last few years.   The dresses were supplied by the girls at Embrace Bridal Boutique. Have you popped in and had a look at their range of bridal gowns?? Stunning…that’s all that really needs to be said.  It was great to work with such talented people. Hair and make up was done by the girls at Ivy Creations hair on Harbour and finally, what would a wedding shoot be like if I wasn’t working with my good friend Mio from Video Vault. After having worked alongside Mio for many years at weddings, I know the shot he needs and he knows that it’s usually best to keep out of my way on a wedding day, so we work perfectly together!! haha..only joking Mio!! You can see some of Mio’s wedding video’s on his Facebook page. So below are a few images from our shoot. I hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed creating them. More images will follow along with Mio’s video of the days shoot.
