Wedding Film Collections

At its core, photography is about creating art from a moment. Each moment is unique. An isolated solitary image from one perspective is compelling and impactful.

A video, however, is about immersion. As a videography team, we can take eight full hours and distill those moments down into a compact bomb of emotion. By capturing sight, sound, and motion together, the other senses kick in and you can feel your wedding day all over again. The sun or the rain, the scent of your flowers, the wind in your hair, the pre-ceremony flutters, and the rush of your ceremony exit... all unlocked for you to re-experience again. It's immersion-style art, and we love it.

Films

Nothing captures emotion like videography. This remarkable media has lasting power to transport you back to the best day of your lives!

Regarding the Above -


lightbox makes THAT ONE photo bigger. You can't scroll through them at all. You just have to close it out which is non-intuitive.



regarding the "Films" segment - if it links to a youtube video, it gets ads (UGH). If it links to the "films" portfolio page, the mobile view doesn't have the proper thumbnail, OR thumbnail focal point.


VIDFLOW WORKS WITH NO ADS. It isn't easy to get back to the webpage unless you remember the back button. See about "open in new tab"





Here's the Thing


I tried using both pixieset (video uploaded directly) and Fyrfly (videos uploaded right to f/f) and it doesn't work. Neither does VidFlow. You Tube links work and Vimeo links work, and I'm not going back to Vimeo. The bottom line is, it's not worth it to upgrade the pixieset gallery just for delivery when so many can't understand the download process anyway. Try having zac or kai add Seth and Chanells (or another older one) to their YouTube/Google drive then delete and see what happens. I can also deliver via VidFlow. That does seem to work well


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^OKAY _ SO VIDFLOW WOULD WORK _ AS ABOVE ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^


You can't do it as a "link" you have to Embed HTML code in an empty box, but it would be a great way to have a mini video portfolio that replicates the mini photo portfolio I'm hoping for.

video hosting


This particular video works because I uploaded it to wordpress and can thus use it as a "background" muted and looped video. There must be some open aspect to the hosting. It doesn't work with anything on youtube or song freedom. The above version (background) does auto scale for mobile, but then doesn't get bigger when you click on it. I have to actually test it on a cell phone to be sure. The below version doesn't scale at all for mobile. It looks dumb.
