Jennifer & Kevin | Wedding Film | UBC Boathouse, Vancouver, BC

In all the time we’ve been filming weddings in Vancouver, we’ve only shot 2 weddings in the rain. Pretty unbelievable huh? That might seem lucky but I’ve always found the grey days to be lovely to shoot on. Everything is a little softer, quieter, the clouds linger over the trees and it all feels very BC. Which was very apt since this was a destination wedding for Jennifer, Kevin and their guests. This wedding was our last of the year (kinda funny how we began and ended the year at UBC Boathouse) and a really great one to finish with. Jennifer and Kevin really are some of the nicest people you could meet (a BIG thank you for the 5 star review!) and they put together a beautiful wedding, complete with tons of personal touches which brought their venue to life. My amazing wife Danielle (All Dolled Up Studio) provided some stunning makeup and hair styling and we worked with Matt and Carissa Kennedy (mattkennedy.ca) for the first time which was a fantastic experience (especially watching Matts sparkler wizardry).  We also bumped into Darian Kovacs (Vancouver Officiant) yet again which is always a pleasant surprise. 

We wanted to have a slightly different tone for this wedding film, setting the scene with some gentler music and a softer look to the shots. We used a lot of vintage lenses and a slightly shallower depth of field than we would normally do. Its hard to explain why it feels natural to do something different when it comes to being creative, but I think it just comes down to communicating a feeling of what a wedding day was like. As mentioned above, this was a destination wedding and so it felt right to begin with a shot that revealed Vancouver in its rainy glory and so a few days after the wedding I headed up to Cypress mountain and flew the drone up into the clouds….hope you enjoy!
