Text Messages and a Wedding

This day was very much anticipated by Isanne and Jordan (us too!). One thing we quickly understood about Jordan is that he loves both Isanne and his phone. During his introduction in the film, the footage has a bit more movement than usual; it was impossible not to laugh with them ;). We were so impressed with how Isanne showed her love for Jordan. From giving each other cards, gifts, little winks and smiles throughout the day, they showed the imense love and emotional connection they both had which helps us recreate the feeling in their story. They both looked like a match made in Heaven.

When putting together their Feature, we took a lot of care in evaluating what kind of couple we are filming; Jordan and Isanne made the job fairly easy. When we sat down and discusses what the story was going to be and how it should feel, we soon decided on building the film to a cinematic soundtrack. Listening to what the Rabbi had to say, it was a very meaningful, well thought out message which acted as a cornerstone narration to their film. His message was powerful and it was able to sustain. It set the expectation perfectly, which we were able to build off of. To compliment how the film would look and feel, we decided when lighting our speeches we wanted to capture the dramatic mood at the reception. The room was huge; filled with friends and family. But it wasn’t just any room – it was the hotel his mother worked at for years and we wanted to highlight how fantastic and unique layout in the room was.

As always, we are very happy to have worked with Andrea Mancini from Soiree Event Planning. She is such a help during the day not only to the Jordan and Isanne but also to us. No detail goes unoticed and we are always lucky to work with her. Rachel and Brian of Lucky Girl Photography are a blast as always. We always appreciate the warm workflow and comrodery we have. Over the years, we have been able to work with them and we are lucky to be able to call them our friends!
