I do not claim to be a videographer.
But at Shayne and Dan’s reception Saturday night the room was dark. I mean DARK. And while Kim used flash I was kind of stuck. So for a little while I pretended to work while she worked her ass off, which was easy b/c Shayne is Chris’s cousin so I could move around mingling with all the people I knew and Kim wouldn’t have been the wiser. But then, about 20 minutes in to my “work” I realized I could shoot video. That my camera actually takes decent video in little to no available light.
So I started shooting.
In the dark.
Which means you’ll have to ignore the poor excuse for focus I had going on and which also means you’ll have to EMBRACE THE GRAIN!
But even with all that I did wrong, I LOVE how this captured their night! Their family and friends enjoying themselves at their party! People laughing and dancing and hugging and loving.
Oh, and a MAJOR disclaimer to the song choice.
We DO NOT own the rights to this song. But I am obsessed with it. So rather than lie and tell you we owned it, I’m being up front and telling you we don’t. But I’m also going to tell you to GO BUY THIS SONG on iTunes! It’s awesome and will make you smile all day long if you add it to your play list! HERE IS THEIR WEBSITE and seriously, go buy their song called HOME. It’s so rad. And Edward, if you find this, I love your song and I hope you love how I used it!
Enjoy the video!
My girls and I just watched this and they danced right along. 😀 And I must be going to the wrong weddings, because I’ve never seen a dance floor so busy! Looks like a great night! Congrats to the new couple!
wow jod. i love it. it feel old and genuine and so, so happy. i would love love love something like this from my wedding day.
Amazing artistry is when you can make a complete stranger shed a tear over another complete stranger. This was truly awesome. I am also digging in my pocket for 99 cents 😉 Great job as always Fresh Art!
There are no words. You captured all the merriment. You have a great eye. Didn’t we have a great time? RK is right, the dance floor was always full!
Total capture of the scene! So wonderful to see it on film. The faces and motion tell the story. Beautiful visual memories saved forever. Congratulations!
What fun! Way to be creative and make the most of a difficult photography situation!
OMG, this is amazingly beautiful. i love the song choice… it’s perfect! and you did such a good job timing the video to the song. that takes talent. maybe you should *start* claiming to be a videographer. 😉
Jodie! I love this! Awesome job, and way to think outside the box in a difficult photography situation!
What a treasure you’ve given your cousins — both in photos and video. You are two uber-talented ladies with such great instincts for capturing life!
Grinned the entire time, love it!
I agree with Heather M. I didn’t want it to end. My heart stood still the entire time, and yes I shed a tear as well! Amazingly beautiful! I think I will watch it again!
This is so neat! I’m sure they will cherish this forever. Wedding dances are so fun!
Why am I sobbing? That was so cool and beautiful! I loved the song and my favorite was Shayne’s Dad blowing kisses at the end.
OMG!!! You are so talented. (Ok, still crying)

I LOVE LOVE LOVE it all, the song , the video, what an amazing keepsake! I would love to have 1/2 your talent Jodie, you do great things with photos and music 🙂
Jodie, I finally got to view it and was smiling the whole time! What a wonderful job you did. I LOVE IT! I couln’t asked for anything more unique or creative on my wedding day. Your talent amazes me once again! I will never be able to thank you enough for all your hard work. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Love, Shayne
I loved the video and had to watch it twice. I felt as if I were there again. Everyone had a wonderful time and it truly captured the essence of the evening, especially the nieces dancing together and Shayne’s dad blowing good bye kisses at the end. How memorable is that. The video is priceless and Dan and Shayne will have it forever to enjoy.
