Sara and Jason met in March, were engaged in June, and are getting married in November. It just goes to show that when you find the person you want to spend the rest of your life with, you don’t want to spend a day longer than you have to without them. They can’t wait to get married and I can’t wait to film their wedding, come November 5, 2011.
This entire shoot came about from Sara wanting something that she could show at her reception that would amaze her guests. Her and Jason later decided that they wanted a Same Day Edit, which means I will be incorporating this into the film shown at the reception. The highly talented photographer, Chandler Adaway, had already planned on photographing Sara and Jason, and he agreed to let me tag along. Between the hours of 5pm and 10pm we visited a coffee shop, Beaumont’s only frozen yogurt eatery, historic downtown Beaumont, and the beach. Sara managed to cover all this ground in heels, while Jason was thankful for the chance for some PDA. You can see the photos at Chandler’s blog!
This was also my first film that I have ever edited with the Cinemascope aspect ratio in mind. This results in a crop where the movie ends up being 1920×800 instead of 1920×1080. The film ends up looking more cinematic and allows me to focus the picture exactly on what I want viewers to see. Expect more of this in the future.

It is a big help to me when you use any of the above product links to Adorama, Amazon, and B&H and when you get anything. It costs you nothing, and helps me keep my site running. I have bought from all of these websites and I highly recommend them for their service, quality, and shipping speed. I recommend them all personally.
