Rachel and Michael.
G + D + H + C + N + Z.
The Hodgetts family became official.
Lots of words running through my head as I sit to write this blog post but I’m pretty sure none will sufficiently do.
Gemma had been following my work for about 3 years before getting in touch. That’s a big deal for me and a ton of expectation.
I trust I did your story justice.
Thanks for watching.
a massive thanks to the wonderful Dee from pink & purple passing on my details. Gemma’s best friend + florist + planner extraordinaire.
Maggie: “Oh hey Matt. When Luke proposed, he gave his phone to the restaurant waiter to film it. Do you think you’d be able to use it at all?”
Me: “Ummm…hell yes.”
Here’s Maggie and Luke’s feature film.
Thanks for watching.
“see I believe life is all about making memories.
some of them are good, some of them are bad, but all of them sculpt who we are today.
and to make a memory stick – to make it really last…
often it has to be something different and unique”
lisa and michael’s wedfest: a true reflection of who they are.
their favourite memories, concerts, markets, food stalls, festivals and celebrations.
ah – bec and phil. I have been waiting for a long time to share this day.
so much content. so many moments. so many good stories.
it was one of those days + celebrations where everything just went right.
as I went through the footage and put the edit together, there was one thing in particular that caught my attention.
bec had hand written in a ‘reasons I want to marry you’ book to phil:
‘you understand that sometimes I just need to cry – and you hug me and comfort me.’
that will do me.
side note: this is a slightly different editing direction to previous pieces. instead of multiple angled quicker cuts of events, I’ve focused more on letting more poignant shots breathe, giving them the screen time they deserve.
there’s 2 sequences in particular given this treatment – a free custom USB drive for the first to identify them. give your answer in the comments.
