It's been a busy fall for us. I love this time of year in Austin, the crisp air returns and makes for some amazing outdoor weddings. This past weekend we had a shoot at www.greenpasturesrestaurant.com , the weather was perfect!
We have been shooting from coast to coast over the past two months. A beautiful ranch wedding in Santa Barbra and a sea breeze wedding in Key West. Trailers will be coming soon for these two gorgeous events!
I wanted to share a couple of cool things that have been happening in our world lately. I was blessed to find out that I along with a few other amazing filmmakers ended up on the cover of www.eventdv.com magazine this month. You can find the article about "Fusion" here - EventDV Article
I also just returned from a trip to San Francisco where I was part of a conference teaching about wedding filmmaking. It was called Re:Frame. I had an amazing time talking and learning from other industry pros. San Francisco is a great city with lots of inspiration for a visual artist, it gave me a chance to breath and shoot some really fantastic scenery. I will also be talking at the upcoming In[Focus] event in January here in Austin. It's going to be an great event, so if you missed Re:Frame and want to learn more about wedding filmmaking I suggest you sign up.
I will be posting a lot of new clips over the next month, so keep checking back for more beautiful weddings! Let me leave you with a new edit from my talk at Re:Frame, this is a collection of recent Time-lapses.
