Renaissance Vinoy/ Showorks

We recently had the honor of creating a spotlight film of the gorgeous Renaissance Vinoy in St. Petersburg featuring the floral and decor of Showorks. The purpose of a spotlight film is not to create a story as we do in our wedding films, but to showcase the talents and beauty of the people and places involved in the shoot. This shoot featured three unique settings including The Glamorous Lobby, The Romantic Tea Garden, and the Nautical Marina. A great team of professionals was involved in making the day a brilliant success! Check out the film and this beautiful venue, a landmark of St. Pete.

Preview: Photovision 2012 Wedding Shoot Out!

We recently blogged about our involvement with Photovision. In case you didn’t read our earlier post, here’s a recap. Check out the preview film of Photovision 2012 Wedding Shoot Out!

What an amazing honor to be the only filmmaker EVER to be invited to participate in PhotoVision! With the new age of DSLR cameras and the crossing over between photographers and filmmaking, PhotoVision invited Alex and the Voila team to be a part of this year’s educational videos focusing on training up and coming filmmakers and photographers.

These tutorial dvds featuring Alex and some of the top photographers in the world will reach up to 50,000 photographers!!

This year’s featured speakers included some of the best photographers in the world who we truly respect! What an amazing opportunity to work along side of these artists in some of the most challenging circumstances and amazing
locations (ie. The Biltmore).

A description of the training DVDs from the PhotoVision website, “You’ll see live sessions, follow along on actual weddings, observe lighting and posing, workflow and image enhancement techniques, hear innovative marketing and sales strategies, enjoy studio walk throughs and much, much more. You’ll go into the studios and see photographers during real sessions, working with real clients and go on location to experience entire weddings.”

The wedding shoot-out put this team of amazing artists to the test. They were challenged with timed scenarios in which they were given outlandish circumstances to create fabulous images and film. They had to make on the spot decisions and make the best of the situations they were in, regardless of backdrop, lighting, and other limitations. The pressure was on… but they sure did make it look like fun! Check it out!!

Family Ties

Emily and Sam had a gorgeous celebration that began early in the day at the Marriott Waterside where both parties started getting ready for the big day. From there, they married at the Academy of Holy Names Chapel and then partied at the always classy Palma Ceia Country Club. Being particularly close to their families, there are some great moments between family members captured in their highlight. This amazing celebration was meticulously coordinated by Sarah Fairbairn with One Fine Day, inc. A great couple and a great wedding all in one!

Fireworks and Champagne

We are incredibly blessed to work with some of the nicest couples on their wedding day. Never was this more true than our encounter with Stefanie and Barton! Upon our first meeting, we knew that this couple was very special. Their love for all things romantic and an incredible craving for champagne helped us to create a basic outline for their film. Stefanie’s passion for animals and Barton’s career as a naval officer gave us great footage for the film that really captured the essence of the couple. Above all else, this couples’ undying love for each other is something you generally only see in the movies- but let me tell you- it’s the real thing!! Here’s a champagne toast to our new friends Stefanie and Barton who truly glow with love for each other.

Fusion

Elise and Ian’s gorgeous wedding found inspiration from the Asian culture. From Elise’s dress to the sushi chef to the dragon dancers and plate spinners, this wedding set the stage for a dramatic film. The beautiful landscape of Avila Golf and Country Club allowed for some gorgeous sweeping shots and the music chosen further enhanced the drama of the film. It was an amazing wedding with some really unique touches that gave the day a flair perfect for this artistic and lovely couple!

Same Day Excitement!

We are so excited to announce that we have started offering same day edits to our clients. A same day edit is the newest trend in wedding films in which footage is shot all day and then edited into a short film that is viewed that very evening at the reception. Kyleen and Toby had a gorgeous wedding at the Avila Golf and Country Club. Their same day edit was a complete surprise to the couple. They thought they were sitting down to watch their engagement shoot. You can imagine their surprise when they saw that the film included their wedding from earlier that day! Their reactions really exceeded our expectations. Kyleen and Toby are a very special couple whose faith plays the utmost importance in their relationship and now their marriage. We were able to use voiceover from the engagement shoot we shot with them to really capture the essence of this couple. Enjoy our same day edit of Kyleen and Toby AND their reactions upon viewing it with their guests at the reception!
