February is a very risky month for those who want a sunny day wedding. Well, Friday, the day before the wedding, it poured rain all over Sacramento. Not the best weather before the wedding and surely didn't have me as excited for the next day. Waking up in the morning, I was expecting another rainy day wedding shoot, but I was wrong. It was clear skies. My dad walked in and asked for the keys to defrost my car, which I thought was nice. After the car was defrosted, I headed to Rancho Cordova, to the bride house, to start my filming.
Arriving at the brides house, I walk and got to filming. Finding my self an unexpected wedding videographer. The brides little brother, who's name I can't remember, helped me film this wedding (at the brides house). Well he's 6 years old I think, but he "helped." He would watch me and follow the sequence that I pressed the buttons, therefore quickly caught on. That button is to make the screen turn on and that one makes the "red" dot go on so it's recording. Oh and the focus, you have to spin that round thing in the front and that makes the picture on the screen clear. So anyways, I walked away from the camera once and came back to him recording the bride. So I gave him credit in the post. Later on I realized that there was around 10 shots, 5 min each recorded by him. The kitchen table, the bride doing hair, the back yard, and so on.
The bride was very relaxed all day and smiled a lot making it very comfortable and easy to film her. Once the groom came over we quickly got out of the house and headed to Old Sacramento for some wedding photos. Time was short as many brides don't realize you gotta give like 1 hr of free time in the morning because hair and make up will quickly use that free time up. We had around 45 minutes to have a photo session but I think I pulled of many of the shots that I wanted from the freezing February...
