Carrie + Justin at the Seacoast Science Center

Justin and Carrie (and their dog Zoe) are all about other people and focused on being a good friend to them. Their film reflects this and features the people that take up space in their hearts. They couldn’t have chosen a more beautiful day, and the location for the ceremony and reception has been a favorite of the Powers Family since our children were old enough to go tidepooling. Even the seagulls were cooperating with us as we shot the details they had created. We were especially blown away by the caterer. Some of their tapas was more like sushi. Okay…yes…I had a sample (well, they offered and this was NOT the kind of offer you can pass up).

Some filmmakers and photographers specialize in certain kinds of weddings. That is what makes them unique from others. We are not trying to attract a “certain kind” of client. We aim to serve all of our clients by creating a film that really shows people (even those who don’t personally know the couple) who they are. That is one of the things our clients like best about us when they get their film.

Here is a list of the professionals we had the priviledge to work alongside:

Caterer: Chill Catering

Hair & Makeup: Andrea Lemelin

Florist: Carrie grew the sunflowers in her own yard; they are her favorite!

DJ: Greg Sowa

Jeweler: Summerwind Jewelers

Photographer: Kerri Lavertu

 

 

Meg + John’s Coastal Maine Wedding

They grabbed a bunch of their spirited friends and rented some breathtaking property in Maine to have a big long celebration that would culminate in a wedding. This is how the next chapter in Meg and John’s life together would begin. Overlook at the Point is a ruggely handsome piece of land with a great big house at the top of it’s granite peake. A tent was brought in, and Meg and her best girls set to working their DIY magic in flowers. They guys got ready just down the road in another rented house with a private beach where we filmed the two playfully chasing each other and being their carefree, silly selves. It’s a tough job…but SOMEbody had to do it 😉

Taylor + Sarah’s Hampton Wedding

Their thoughts:

“I honestly can’t thank both you and Nikki enough. Your attention to detail is incredible and the song choice was so spot on. I have probably watched the video 100 times and it still brings tears of joy to my eyes every time. I invited my whole friends list to your like page! I have made sure to not make you a secret at work. There are a ton of girls getting married so I hope they come your way.” -Sara

“That was worth every second of the wait. I’ve had so many people comment on how amazing the video is. You guys have outdone yourselves. Simply breathtaking” -Taylor

Our thoughts:

Sometimes you never know what the weather is going to do. Sarah & Taylor’s wedding was on such a day. Though the light sprinkles caused some concern Sarah didn’t let them take away the beaufiful spot where we had planned for them to have their first look. It was under a protective arbor of trees down a little path. Brave girl – and all went perfectly well – and the weather held out.

Some couples debate over whether or not they should have a first look. They know it is the popular thing to do and their photographer may be pushing for it, but some can only imagine their first look being that moment when they see each other down the aisle at their ceremony. Our word of advice: if you think you will need some tension to be taken out before your ceremony because you anticipate your nerves will be pegging the scale, then a first look might be the right choice for you. We notice that couples relax into their day so much sooner if they take that alone-time with one another before the ceremony. Having a first look also opens up additional time in your day to get some creative and formal shots out of the way. BUT, if you think that you can handle the pre-ceremony nerves and really can’t see yourself spoiling that aisle moment with a sneek peek, then don’t compromise your vision. Not having a first look will not hurt your wedding film at all.

Here are the professionals who took part in Sarah & Taylor’s special day:

Caterer: Portsmouth Catering Company

Hair: Sandra Flannery of Salon East
