I met Zac from Current Films through my hair and make up stylist (who happens to be his wife). Although photography was one of our largest budgeted items for the wedding day, we weren't sure we were going to "splurge" for a videographer. In r...
etrospect, this was easily the best investment we made.
Zac arrived early on the wedding morning and we set some ground rules. Me: "Am I supposed to look at you? I feel rude not including you in the conversation..." Zac: "Good morning, I'm happy to be here and this day is about you guys and your families. Just ignore me." So, the rest of the day I completely ignored Zac and probably forgot he was there. Little did I know, he was busy working his magic.
He worked with our wedding planner and our photographer ahead of time to make sure he was where he needed to be. He captured the bride and the groom separately getting ready, our venue before anyone arrived, the bride's first moment with her father, the first look, the walk down the aisle, all the speeches...and then he captured the little things..the things that we couldn't quite remember but knew we wanted to...the business partner playing a yard game with the ring bearer, my great-aunt wrapping a scarf around the father-of-the groom's neck to lure him on the dance floor, the reaction the groom had when opening his card from the bride. The little moments that you don't get to see, but hope that you would, Zac captured.
We have both the short "highlight reel" and the longer video. I thought we'd watch our wedding video once and put it away for 10 years. Not only do we share the video with friends, but sometimes we'll sit on the couch together and pull the highlight reel up on our phone and watch it. In the last 5 months, we've probably watched the video nearly 40 times...sharing it with relatives, with friends, when we want a little extra smile.
And as if simply capturing the moments wasn't enough, his filming is so beautiful, we were able to take stills from the video for moments when Zac was there but our photographer was somewhere else in the crowd.
Not only would I book Zac to film our wedding all over again, I find myself looking for excuses to hire Zac. Maybe my parents' anniversary, a birthday party, a completely random Tuesday night dinner?
