Wedding Date on Dec 9, 2018

When Cassie approached me over a year ago, she had a special vision in mind for her wedding film. She remembered an old Super 8 wedding video that she'd seen years before, and the feelings that it evoked when she watched it. She fell completely in love with the nostalgia and timelessness of the film look, and for years it had been her dream to have her wedding captured in that same vintage style. I had never shot Super 8 before, but after talking through Cassie's vision, I was completely bought in on the idea. I researched cameras and film stock for months in preparation, and we did a test shoot just weeks before the wedding to make sure we would be able to capture all of the reception footage in the dark. I ended up purchasing an old Canon 310 XL Super 8 camera for shooting, and for film stock I went with Vision3 200T color negative film for the daylight portions of the day, and Vision3 500T color negative film for the nighttime portions. On the wedding day we only shot five rolls of film, about 15 minutes total. A single roll is only 3 minutes long, and the cost of the film plus processing comes out to about $100 a roll, so we carefully executed a shot list throughout the day to capture everything we wanted on Super 8, saving it for only the most important moments. Myself and my second shooter captured digital footage of everything in between, and so we would have a backup in case the film failed for any reason. In the end, I was inspired by the juxtaposition of footage and music. Although the music was technically hip hop, the synthesizer evoked a bit of an 80's vibe that worked so well with the Super 8 footage. I also loved that by mixing the digital and film footage, I was forced to get creative with some of my transitions and editing choices. I wanted the video to feel as though we were reminiscing back on old memories, and the switch from digital to Super 8 feels almost like flashback scenes. I'm so thrilled with how this creative endeavor came out, and I'm so grateful for Cassie's strong vision and eagerness to trust me with trying something new. Cheers to the happy couple!
