My First Wedding Video Shoot

So here I am with another blog and I'm actually surprised with myself on how I handled my first wedding shoot.  Mind you I didn't take photos for it but video.  It was a great learning experience and found out first hand that nothing goes as you plan.  But that is life and you have to be flexible with how the cards falls and learn how to pick it up.  My first fault was making assumptions which now I know not to do especially during events, always prepare for the worst.  I assumed that the groom would be in the same hotel getting ready and that did not happen at all.  So I drove over to the location where the event would be taking place and got some shots over there of the groom getting ready and drove back to the hotel and got the girls getting ready.  Then drove back to the event location and waited for both the bride and groom.  If it wasn't for my friend Cari who came to help me out and give me moral support I don't think I could of done it as well if she wasn't there.  I 100% owe her a nice dinner to say thank you! Any who I ended up being there for about 2:30pm? to about 10:30-11? so it was a full day of recording and being on my toes and getting enough b-roll to tell a nice story. I was shooting with my Canon 80D and also had my drone.  The lenses I used throughout the night was my 18-135mm Canon STM, 10-22mm USM, and 50mm f/1.4.  I think these did the job for me.  Only complaint on myself is getting faster lenses or just lenses that are fixed aperture so I didn't have to consistently change the F-Stop to adjust for me zooming in and out to get the right shots.  But you live and learn and go with the punches.  Make the gear work for you instead of you working for the gear.

Overall I was very happy with the end result and the clients were very happy which is 99.99% of what matters in this type of service.

Another Day Another Hike

So I went on a hike today with Louis from @offgridphotography and he was going to go to Rabbit Lake anyways so he invited me to come with.  It was about a 5 mile hike to an awesome lake area which I will post photos later since I mainly took photos with my film camera and was vlogging somewhat with my DSLR.  

The end point was still a bit snowy but you could see how high the peaks were and was just amazing.  I will definitely be back during the summer to check out the hike and see more of the views.  Louis is definitely a cool dude and very inspired by Chris Burkard.  

Hopefully there will be more of these hikes in the near future with other IG-er's to collab on hikes and network in this state.  

Here is a small vlog of today's hike.  It isn't much but hope you guys enjoy! :)
