I shot an engagement session a few weeks back in the quirky, Fells Point, in downtown Baltimore. It was the first time I incorporated video into my photography, and I think I’m in love. I love how short documentary films capture the sweet + real moments in an artistic way. I love how they tell stories in a way that photography cannot. Don’t get me wrong, I love photography, but I also love the idea of a cinematic story — both are oh, so beautiful in different ways. And incredibly captivating + emotional when used together.
As for my first engagement film, I thought it would be neat to create a “Save the Date”, but by way of a film — so here it is, a sneak peak of Zaved + Nafisa’s engagement shoot. More photos from the e-session are soon to come! As for film standards, this film is not perfect. I need to be more effortless + smooth in my filming — something which can be worked on with more practice. And practice would be nice right about now because the ideas in my head are overflowing! Overall it makes me happy to watch after the hours of editing. It’s also super sweet to see two people so in love.
Thanks to my brother for the use of his camera, and my husband for his creative eye. Make sure to increase the volume. Music by the lovely Basia Bulat. [Note: The still photography may look somewhat stretched — I am working on a way to fix this.]
