Well, filming is done in Charleston and what a great weekend it turned out to be!
Dad and Richard were so much fun to work with. I could have written a book on how the two of them worked so well together--it was really THAT fascinating to watch. I compared it to watching fire (Richard) and water (dad) work together. It was unbelievable and I am beyond excited to see the two of them working together.
Now on to me :-)
I had no idea that my little Cannon 814 would get so much attention in Charleston. I had over a dozen people go out of their way to come and talk to me about what I was doing and what in the world I was holding. This was just at the wedding alone. I also had some bystanders in downtown Charleston and at the hotel look at my camera, then at me, then at my camera again, as a perplexed look washed over their faces. One man walked over and stood right at my shoulder while I was filming some outside shots of the hotel. I think I'm going to keep that little Cannon 814 with me at all times when I'm needing some attention--maybe go shopping or to Whole Foods with it. It literally was a people magnet which is quite strange for me. I joke that I've never been that cool kid...but now I am--well on the surface (I guess I'll always have that little nerd inside). It was like Clark Kent changing into Superman.
Okay...I'm digressing. Where was I, oh yes...the wedding was beautiful and the reception was to die for. The girls at A Charleston Bride did such a wonderful job planning all the details. I have never worked at a wedding that was that big (500 people) and that relaxed. And can I just say, the bride (Caroline) was never without her lip gloss. One of the wedding planners was by her side the ENTIRE time glossing her lips without Caroline having to worry about a thing. Now, that's my kind of service right there! Caroline was like a little rock star that day.
SO up next, I have a date in the editing room coming up. I mailed the film off on Monday for processing and transfer and should be getting it back in about 2 weeks. At that point, I'll be mixing the film with the stills that both Richard and dad took. Richard shot all film, so I am so interested to see how everything turns out. And I am so excited about sharing the finished product with you all!
