Jeff + Kate | Same Day Edit

This Same Day Edit is very unique and special for us. To help give some perspective as to why, we need to explain a bit about our initial meeting with Kate. She was well in-tune with what we were creating for people and what it meant. It was just as exciting for us to hear how Kate recollected a lot of our work – she knew so much about every film we’ve created and understood exactly what we do and how we would fit perfectly into her wedding day. They both planned on sharing their film with family and friends back home after the wedding, so the SDE ended up being a special moment shared over both sides of the country. The unique challenge was length. After talking to Kate and Jeff, their story was more suited for a Feature, but we wanted to share that vision with the guests on their wedding day. The result was this; a film uniquely shaped to combine the longer format story into a same day edit timeline.

Jeff and Kate both live out in Vancouver. The story of how they got there is fascinating. When we see these two holding hands, crossing over a divide in the garden and walking in parallel to meet again at the end – it is really a strong metaphor to how they ended up together. After a few disappointing years, Kate gave up on relationships. She decided to move out west to begin a new life, where she found herself working at a bank. There, she interacted with customers as the came and went until Jeff came through those doors. Jeff made an effort to keep coming back to her and before they knew it, they were together at last.

If you’ve ever met a guy who is passionate about life, Jeff is that person. The morning of his wedding, though he was a bit shy at first, he quickly forgot about cameras following him around. He’s the type of person who isn’t often caught off guard. His passion lies in fitness and training which goes so well with his character – strong, witty and sharp. When he turned around and gazed into Kate’s eyes for the first time, his heart started pounding and for the first time that day he was at a loss for words. From there on, he forgot everything else in the world and focused on her. They shared this important day with friends and family gathered for a rooftop ceremony, followed by a wonderfully warm reception downstairs at the WAG. It’s always fun working with friends and we had the pleasure of working with Luckygirl Photography that day as well. We hope you enjoy.

    Absolutely beautiful film fellas. But I have one beef… You were out in Vancouver and didn’t tell us!?!? We miss you!

  • Sesums

    Beautiful film, guys! Hard to believe it was a SDE!

  • Jessie

    You guys, this is absolutely beautiful. The vide caught my eye as I actually knew Kate from when we were younger. I remember how deathly afraid she was of sharks and what a kind person she is. So happy to see you capture the love of her big day and give her and her husband memories that will last forever. Keep up the wonderful work and congratulations to Kate and Jeff!
