Teaching at Unveiled: the School for Brides-to-be

View More: http://loveandlight.pass.us/unveileduniversity2015

Last November, the (second) annual Unveiled was held in Asbury Park, which means I had the opportunity to share some behind-the-scenes knowledge about wedding cinematography to a group of newly engaged gals. Of course my second shooter (my sister) and I brought our equipment along with us and filmed all the fun, alongside Jessa of Love & Light Photographs, whose images are in this post. Paige of Gilded Lily Events once again conceptualized the school’s theme. This year felt inspired by the most glamorous science lab you could imagine.

The farm tables from Dovetail Vintage were adorned with clear glass, lots of greenery, and there were even REAL school lunch trays. Trays that got even better once filled with pizza and salad from Talula’s. I think that was my favorite part as soon as I walked into the Market at Fifth Avenue, this year’s venue.

Our brides didn’t leave empty-handed. Swag bags were given out to each girl at the end of the day, and of course I couldn’t help but gift my favorite story, Peter Pan. (The cover is chalkboard, how could I not?! It was meant to be.)

My “class” this year focused on different styles of wedding cinematography, and what you actually need to know from your cinematographer. I’m eager to see what 2016’s Unveiled will hold. Be sure to follow this blog or Unveiled’s Facebook or Instagram to be the first to know the next date for this fall’s class!

My Photoshoot with Love & Light Photographs + New Website

Last year, I had some great experiences working with local creatives; filming events and workshops, schooling brides, and creating brand films for photographers and other small business owners. While there is a special place in my heart for wedding films, it was a huge difference in opportunity to have full creative control. I was able to brainstorm, make mistakes, and attempt things that typically I wouldn’t have time for. I loved it – when you’re a runner, its nice to get out and swim in the ocean every once in a while.

With this new found interest came a lot of logistical questions when it came to a new website. How would I showcase firstly, myself, but more importantly these new “brand movement films”? How could I show small business owners that they do (BIG) things for business? How would they fit alongside weddings?

In come two people I admire and respect, Jessa of love & light photographs and Ravyn of 315 design. With Jessa’s lifestyle photoshoot and Ravyn’s web design skills, we were able to create a new website for between sleep and awake – YAY. The photoshoot also brought to light that my husband and I like the color green, A LOT.

I’m ending with a photo of our adopted cat, Fern, who clearly wasn’t ready for his close-up.
