‘Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us.
Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you.
We are all meant to shine as children do. It’s not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same.
As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.’
~ Maryanne Williamson

sarah and russ.
I’m not even sure where to begin.
my mind immediately flashes back to the email they sent me when they decided to go ahead.
it was brief…this is word for word:
“Sarah & Russ here… you’re ridiculous. We must have you for our wedding.”
it was a big decision, and that email still brings a giant, goofy grin to my face.
enjoy the story of their day with their feature film.
I love the fact that russ still calls sarah ‘Browny’.
russ and sarah’s day:
sarah’s preparations: sofitel brisbane
russ’ preparations: royal on the park
ceremony: macarthur park
reception: botanical café

storyboarding is something that is more suited to productions where there’s a high degree of pre planning taking place. corporate shoots, short or feature films, that sort of thing.
the type of production where scenes can be planned – usually through sketches – and then exactingly shot and re-shot based on the production brief – referring back to the storyboard as a reference.
it’s not really suited to weddings due to the unpredictable, fluid nature with how things happen.
I would never storyboard a scene from a wedding. it’s the complete opposite to how I approach a wedding day.
if I was ever going to do it, I’m pretty sure the resulting storyboard would look exactly like these few frames from C+L’s film.
you don’t want to miss seeing this celebration.

the skinny on anna and david’s day:
