Around June of this year, I purchased the new Canon 5D mark II SLR camera. This was the first of the Canon professional range to come out with ‘Live View’. Live view now gives the professional ‘still’ photographer, the ability to capture high definition video footage during a wedding while at the same time capture traditional photographs.
Very quickly I realised that as a professional photographer, I won’t have long before my customers and their wedding guests realise that a professional photographer can take video as well as still photographs. Why is this important to know? Well I believe that for a short time I have an ability to take very candid video footage because my wedding clients would not be expecting me to take video from my normal looking professional SLR camera. This of course allows me to capture and create something very special and unique for my wedding couples.
Paul & Kelly got married on the 26th of September at the Balmoral Beach rotanda. Photographs were taken around Balmoral Beach then a quick stop over at the Sydney Opera House for some more wedding photographs. Their reception was at Bavarian Beer Cafe at Fox Studios.
I wanted to surprise Paul & Kelly by capturing some footage of their reception and add it into their wedding slide show. Paul & Kelly only expected to see their wedding photographs that I captured for them but were so excited and surprised when they saw actual video footage of the reception as well.
Paul & Kelly have been very kind to allow me to share their wedding slide show on the Sarhn McArthur Photography Facebook profile.
Thank you Paul & Kelly.
