Michael & Jordan (Rosemary Beach Wedding Highlights)

Michael & Jordan’s wedding ceremony & reception took place at the Eastern Green in Rosemary Beach, FL.  This was such a fun video to create given the awesome personalities found in both wedding parties.  You can really see the fun both were sharing in their Rosemary Beach Wedding film, which made it a blast to capture for us as filmmakers.  We came equipped to shoot the day with a mixture of both Mark II’s and Mark III’s and set off using only Manfrotto fluid monopods.  It was extremely helpful to have a large space that was well lit, in which the girls interacted with one another and were very dynamic in their movements & placements within the room.  It’s so common, and very unfortunate, when a bride is cooped up in a corner or surrounded by mirrors in a tightly knit bathroom or space.   The blocking of the bridesmaids allowed us to change positions and shoot their interactions including laughs, smiles, and expressions from different angles.  It was this that created for the fun whip-pans, or directed movements between the girls while in discussion.  If the filmmaker is capable of panning and hitting their ‘mark’ on the ending frame, it is said to be more impactful and helps progress the story than a traditional cut.  While sometimes we are more inspired by music, or pacing than story telling, we try our best to construct sequences with actions and re-actions, whether that be among the guests or tying together similar clips to create a greater meaning.  Essentially in this instance, the movement of the pan rather than an additional cut helps to prevent the viewer from consciously acknowledging they are watching a film.  I really enjoyed expressing my thoughts here on how impactful camera movement can be, and hope to do so again in the future!  Please enjoy Michael & Jordan’s highlights film as listed below.

Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach 2014 | 30a photographers

We were honored to have asked back as one of the photography + commercial video sponsors of the electrifying annual event held in Alys Beach and known as Digital Graffiti.
As stated on the DG website, “Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is the world’s first projection art festival, with artists using the latest technologies to project their original works onto the town’s iconic white walls.  Sometimes referred to as “Photon Bombing,” “Guerilla Projection” or “Urban Projection,” underground artists around the globe have already been using the latest design, animation and projection technologies to cast dynamic images onto skyscrapers and other urban structures as a means of artistic expression. But Digital Graffiti at Alys Beach is the first outdoor festival specifically organized to celebrate and showcase these unique talents. “Our town literally becomes their blank canvas,” said Kelli Siler, Alys Beach’s Events Coordinator.”
Digital Graffiti 2014 was just as epic as was last year’s event.  There were returning artists from year prior, as well as new digital artists from all over the world.  Shantell Martin is my personal favorite.  She had an interactive canvas in which she would digitally draw on or around the subjects.  One of the new artists I was drawn to was Joseph Toney.  His piece was projected on one of the beautiful houses that lines scenic highway 30a.   Saturday night was a great conclusion to DG2014, with amazing music and live visuals set to music by the talented team at B-Boy Productions.  Jeff with Facetime Photobooth was back again, and that is always a treat.  DG is better and better with each year, and we’re look forward to what is to come for Digital Graffiti 2015.   ~Ryan

Destin Real Estate + Aerial Video

We’re so excited to officially announce the launch of our aerial real estate films!  Using state-of-the-art drone and media technology, we produce engaging, dynamic films showcasing our client’s properties and residing communities, giving the viewer an in-depth view of all that each premise has to offer.  The perspective offered by our aerial videos is truly a one-of-a-kind viewing experience!

We recently showcased one of Alan’s incredible real estate films of the Gulf-front Adagio property in Blue Mountain Beach (also seen below), which offers the viewer a virtual step inside this gorgeous property.  Much more than your standard run-of-the-mill “virtual tour” or slideshow of static images, our professional real estate videos truly bring a property to life.

Taking the “virtual tour” to an entirely new level with in-depth aerial views of a property and its surrounding communities is something we’re incredibly excited to offer in and around the Destin and Santa Rosa Beach, Florida areas.  We’re confident that Alan’s professional training combined with his unmatched talents and ability to produce high quality aerial video will take your real estate marketing to an entirely new level!

Girls’ Night Out | Destin Event Videography Services

Who doesn’t love a good girls’ night out — especially when it takes place at an incredible restaurant (on the beach!), and includes things like a rockin’ DJ, a talented band, beautiful decor, the best photo booth in town, and gobs of fun?!?    That’s exactly what we experienced at the 7th Girls’ Night Out {GNO}, hosted by Proffitt PR this past September at Elephant Walk in the Sandestin Golf and Beach Resort.  These GNOs aren ‘t just any ol’ event — they’re one of the Emerald Coast’s largest women-only social events designed to provide an outing for talented female professionals in the area to come together to benefit a local charity.  In this Arabian Nights-themed GNO, over $12,500 was raised to benefit The Shelter House Domestic Violence Center of Northwest Florida.  Now that’s a girls’ night to brag about!

Not only did we have a great time, but we were super-honored to have had Alan film this event!  Thanks to everyone involved, and especially to Proffitt PR for asking us to provide our event videography services for such a great group of women.  Can’t wait to see what’s in store for the next GNO!

DoubleTake Event | Pensacola Wedding Videographer

Ever wanted to crash a wedding without looking like a big jerk?  Well, Alan had the opportunity to do just that this past fall, and we’re proud to say that he definitely didn’t walk away bearing jerk-status of any kind.  He did, however, walk away capturing this incredible wedding video — although, this wasn’t just any wedding — it was ultimate non-wedding event of the year!

The DoubleTake Event, created by the super-talented Pensacola wedding planner, Sara Gillianne, is a mock wedding that brides are invited to crash!  Complete with a “fake” ceremony, reception and everything in-between, brides were able to experience every aspect of an amazing wedding — as a guest.

This was such a fun experience and we were so honored to have been the wedding videographer for it!

Adagio | 30A Commercial Video Production

We’ve been showing off a lot of Alan’s talents in the world of wedding videos, but did you know that he also has some pretty insane skills in the world of commercial video production, too?  Well, he does.  In fact, before we get into today’s feature, click right here for a little proof of his rock star abilities in the world of commercial films.  See?  Told you.

Alan’s gone and outdid himself again with this video tour of an amazing beachfront rental property located on 30A, in Blue Mountain Beach.  Managed by our friends (no pun intended, really) with Your Friend at the Beach, the Adagio is just as incredible in person as it’s portrayed in this video.  (Side note: After drooling over this property and realizing how much you probably need a vacation, be sure to hop on over to their website and book your trip soon!  Their calendar is filling up fast!) 


Noel + Jim | Destin Wedding Videography

Noel and Jim didn’t let a little rain get in the way of their happy wedding day.  In fact, they smiled more than any two people should probably be allowed to smile in one day.  ;)  They were so sweet, and so in love — and SO patient given the dire weather circumstances.  And it paid off: That rain held up just long enough for them to exchange their sweet vows — and then party on into the night as Mr. & Mrs.!

We loved being a part of their TOPS’L wedding celebration and are so excited to share their highlights reel put together by our talented Alan!

Connie + Ray | Destin Wedding Video Services

If there’s nothing else you to on this pretty Friday, please make sure you watch this wedding video in its entirety.  Connie and Ray’s full-length cinematic wedding film will put a serious perma-grin on your face that will more than likely linger to the point where complete strangers will wonder what’s making you so stinking happy today.  The happiness that radiates from the couple, and the entire group of giddy, laughing guests is pretty much contagious!

Providing Destin Wedding video Services at a beach wedding ceremony  – especially when the wind is moving at mach speeds — can certainly prove challenging; which is why working with a professional wedding videographer who can capture that intensely sentimental ceremony, word-for-word, is so important.   As a couple, being able to look back on this for years to come is truly priceless.

A HUGE thank you to all the great professionals who made Connie and Ray’s wedding day so special and for including us on all the fun!

Brandy + Greg | Destin Wedding Videographer

Brandy and Greg were recently married at Celebration Hall, which is one of the area’s newest wedding venues.  The reception took place just down the road at the nearby Sandestin Beach Club, which was a total blast to be a part of.  There’s something a little extra special about this wedding . . . the bride is one of our very own Lindsey’s best friends!  We were even nice enough to give her the day off to take part in the festivities as a bridesmaid.  ;)

While Ryan was taking all the gorgeous images of this sweet couple, Alan was busy doing his usual awesome thing behind the video camera — and today you get a sneak peek into their ceremony and reception highlights!  Stay tuned for more where this came from; we still have a whole gallery of beautiful pictures and a full-length wedding film coming to a 2014 blog near you!

Marcella + Peter | Pensacola Wedding Videographer

Alan packed up his gear and headed to the Pensacola Country Club to film the sweet wedding of Marcella and Peter earlier this year.  Working alongside the talented Sara Gillianne Weddings & Events was awesome, and it was great to be able to connect with so many other amazing Pensacola wedding professionals.

Marcella and Peter’s wedding day couldn’t have been more perfect: from the weather to the happy people to the love between this awesome couple.  They were really sweet and a joy to work with, even taking the time to personally greet all of their guests during their reception.

We’re excited to share Alan’s talents as a Pensacola wedding videographer, and the video highlight reel from Marcella and Peter’s wedding. We can’t wait to share the full feature soon!
