Matt and Nell's Wedding Video



I was absolutely thrilled and honored to be able to take part in Matt and Nell's wedding in Houston, TX this past weekend. Matt and Nell have been dear friends for years and they are some of the nicest, most generous, and amazing people I know.

During my time there, I shot about 90 minutes worth of video, which I then condensed into the 5-minute video above.  Everything was shot using 60 fps, and some footage was slowed to 24 fps. The video was shot entirely handheld, using a Canon 60D and a 50mm f/1.4 lens.I agonized over which lens/body to bring with me, and what other equipment might be necessary. In the end, I went with something light-weight and simple, and I think the final setup allowed me to grab a few more shots than I would have if I'd used a bulkier setup.

  1. I have been editing videos for several years, but I'm about to go direct a major project for my company. I have been reading several books about shooting video to make sure I don't miss anything. This wedding video is perfect! It hits all the important points I have been reading about. Excellent job.

  2. Kenyon - Thanks for your kind words! Can you direct me to some of the stuff you've been reading? Would love to learn what's out there :)

  3. I don't know these people, but that was really quite nice.
