Temple Ruins + A Green Wedding Dress + Epic Drone Shots = An Amazing Wedding Film
Patrick & Melanie held their Wedding at one of the most epic venues I've ever shot it. Super small and quaint and only available for relatively small Weddings, The Maitland Art Center in Maitland, Florida reminds one of ancient Mayan or Aztec temple ruins and hosts an abundance of beautiful architectural details with little nooks and crannies the hold lots of opportunity for both the photographer and videography to let their creativity run wild! I had such a moment when I was shooting their Wedding. Patrick and Melanie had a very simple timeline (it also leaned in the photographer and I's favor). They held a very quick dinner reception and everyone was out by golden hour (an hour before sunset) so we had the couple all to ourselves and we had an AMAZING time with them. I had a spark of creativity and decided to lay my couple on the ground (they were totally up for it!) and took centerpieces that had been thrown in the trash and laid them in a circle around them, then flew the drone right above them for a super romantic, creative shot. As I was doing it, I was getting goosebumps realizing how epic this shot could be. Look for it as the entrance shot to their film!
