The whole COVID thing is still fresh in my mind, but to be very honest it no longer concerns me at all. For me personally, it wasn't all bad. The lockdowns and cancellation of weddings gave me a lot of 'quality time' with Carine. We decided to tackle a major project: converting a van into a camper with which we could travel around Europe. We have already completed a number of very nice trips.
But also on a business level it gave us the time to tackle new things that you would otherwise not have time for. We started making wedding films during this period. Carine does the video part and I do the photos and audio myself. Super fun to work with your favorite person in the world and it is very nice for our customers that we can now offer both photography and videography.
Maybe you guys have the wedding photos of Bob and Melissa already seen passing by. But what you don't know is that we also made a wedding film for them. For the second wedding film we ever made, we drove to the always beautiful place with the car fully loaded Château Camp Del Saltré for another beautiful day with the cutest ones from LOT Of Happiness. Sometimes I am asked what is better: photos or video. But actually it's apples and oranges. Still images portray events in a very different way than video. They freeze moments that last a fraction of a second and thus immortalize them. A video, in turn, is beautiful because it shows everything in motion. You can see how moments and emotions arise and how they develop. I think photo and video together really make a great team that shows your beautiful day in all its facets. A marriage of two mediums, so to speak!
My tip: Check out both the wedding photos of Bob and Melissa as the video. You will see that it is a completely different experience, but together you have the best of both worlds:
