a shot in the dark


I have now accomplished one of my unwritten goals for the year. Shoot an entire video in black and white. Jimmy at gideonphoto.com and I had the idea, while working down in San Diego this week, of shooting at night using only natural light - Joy and Jeff are a great couple and she is due in May. This is just a taste of the many shoots we've done together this week as we prepare for the wedding on Saturday of another couple, Roselyn and Ben. Until then - enjoy!

Really beautiful video!
I have to tell you - I have a 15 year old daughter and she has visions of her future, just like all girls her age...a wonderful, worthy companion, a simple, beautiful temple wedding - and NO STUPID RECEPTION! She would rather spend all of her money on two things - stunning photographs of her wedding day by Robert Boyd, and an amazing engagement/wedding video by NP films!!
Give my Maggie a few years and I'm sure you'll be hearing from her!

I am so in love with this video. The styling and artistic effect gives it such a parisian feel even though its shot it San Diego. The couple is just too cute for words.

So glad everyone loves the video so much. Nate and I had a blast making it. For all those interested in the song. It is Taxi Cab, by Vampire Weekend. Maybe the coolest band ever!

This video is adorable. Since I first saw it on Friday, I've probably watched it 10 times. Joy and Jeff are so natural and lovely, and I'm dying to know where her coat is from!

Melissa said...

That was so amazing! I loved that it was black and white! You always amaze me. You work just gets better and better.

I stopped videography, right at the HD switch and now I'm way behind...how do you get such crisp video to load on your site? send me a link anything...is it all in the initial export settings, the compression settings, what please share...I promise I won't compete, I just want to post clean video on my blog :)

by the way, this video ALMOST made me wish I was still shooting and editing...almost. :) It was very well done.
