Having had the pleasure of working with a true professional like Lynn Fletcher of Lynn Fletcher Weddings and having shot a few of her many wedding in 2010, I had the pleasure of creating a promotional video showing some of her excellent design work. The video premiered at the Bridal Fair in Calgary on the big screen and viewed by hundreds of bride, grooms and moms at the show.
Most of these events were elaborate and I made the most of our High Definition cameras to capture the fine works of art in different angles with dolly and crane and some inventive ways I tried on the spot. I edited the segment to music selected by the Fletcher team and went to work. here is the segment. Hope you can enjoy the visuals both the way Lynn created it and the way I got to capture it.
I’ve noticed in the last 6 months that a variety of people in the wedding services industry have started to blog more and more. From wedding planners to photographers they have all found new ways of sharing their events and how to’s. I remember seeing one wedding planner saying they would give a Free planner if you gave your email etc. interesting catch, but really not something you can’t already find on the web. Other’s have given their top 10 or top 50 tips with a daily tip or weekly tip to keep the would be bride interested and hopefully use their services. The best of the photographers and wedding planners know that the best way to engage a client is with your work! Yes there I said it. Brides want to see your work no matter what service you offer, they also want to know that clients were satisfied.
I know that when a client calls for one of my services such as a wedding film or DJ service they are either looking for my services specifically because a wedding planners suggestion to contact me or have heard of us through others using our services.
So when you see a beautifully design specific wedding like the one’s that Lynn Fletcher Weddings does expect to pay for that great service and design expertise.
