To say I’m excited to share this SDE is an understatement!! This is a completely unique Same Day Edit which came about after I literally dreamt about this concept – to produce a wedding day music video as a SAME DAY EDIT!! I thought of Aria and Elie because they are an incredibly fun couple who were getting married at the brand spankin’ new Mandarin Oriental in Vegas. I pitched it to them and they loved it too!! We picked a Song and Elie worked on memorizing the lyrics for two straight weeks (he’s really sick of the song now LOL) and it seriously paid off. We had initially planned to film it 5 times during the day but due to timing and other factors we were only really able to film it twice (and once at the rehearsal dinner the night before) but I’m amazed at how great it turned out regardless! I’m sure it’s because I had such an amazing all female rock star team from all over the country assisting me (Cristina Valdivieso from Philly, Kara Jensen from Oregon, and Kristen* from San Fran, and of course Elysium’s own Carolyn Templin as editor). We shot 100% on 5DmkII’s and one 7D for timelapses. Tory Cooper did an absolute fabulous job pulling this beautiful event together and we absolutely loved working with another all female rock star crew: J and J Photography… you have to check out their photos!!!

BTW if you’re watching this and you have already booked Elysium for a SDE and you want to do something like this, OR if you haven’t and you want to reserve a spot before we are all booked up, please contact me. I have a long list of tracks that would be amazing for this!
