Congratulations James & Jamie on your beautiful wedding! James & Jamie got married at Casa Real Winery in Livermore on November 18, 2010. James is one of my closest friends and it was absolutely amazing to see him get married to his beautiful wife Jamie. I was not the photographer for his wedding as he wanted me to hang out and enjoy the wedding, instead of working at the wedding. He chose a fabulous photographer from the bay area by the name of Karl Ko. You can check out the photos of their wedding on his website (http://karlko.blogspot.com/2010/11/jamie-james-wedding-livermore.html). I was however able to get a couple of getting ready shots before the wedding started. James and Jamie both looked like Korean celebrities on this day.
Since I was not their photographer and they did not hire a videographer, I volunteered to try to do a video for their wedding. I have always admired videos that wedding videographers captured and created. I knew the Canon 5D Mark II had hd video capabilities and it was just a matter knowing how to use it correctly. So I practiced, got my gear ready, and tried my best to capture their wedding day not as a photographer but as a videographer. It was a great learning experience, challenging at times, but it was a lot of fun also. I am in the process of creating the actual video for the wedding but I have created a short trailer for everyone to view. Scroll down to the bottom of this post and you should be able to see the video.
