After 15 years of shooting weddings and 14 years of owning this company, being nervous for a wedding is not common. We don't get nervous. We have done nearly 1000 weddings, so the territory is not unfamiliar...until you have to film an award winning director's wedding. Then, you shake in your boots a bit. I agonized over this wedding for months, just because Lanre actually understands film and no matter how many times he told me to do my thing, I still had those thoughts of "what if he doesn't like it" in my head.
Well, yesterday I cut a Same Day Edit which brought the big guy to tears, and allowed me to step out of my comfort zone and do something a little different. Tiffany, she was a sure bet. I knew I would make her happy with the film. I couldn't ever ask for a more calm and relaxed bride (not to mention absolutely stunning). Lanre and Tiffany, were so easy to be around, and their families were too. Becoming a married couple seemed easy for these two, and the knowledge that the marriage is more important than the wedding was obvious, but that wedding still blew me away with it's beauty. It was at the most beautiful church I have seen.
I guess sometimes being nervous for something is good. I think it allowed me to care even more. It allowed me to listen that much more, to a couple who knew what they wanted, and trusted my company to provide it. It was a great day. Enjoy.
