Wedding Highlights: Michelle & Liem

It was so much fun to work on this edit, and I’m beyond happy with how it came out. Immediately prior to shooting this wedding, I had made some gear upgrades, which I got to start implementing starting with this one. This included a drone for aerial establishing shots, a gimbal for those wonderful shots with movement, and a couple of new cameras that enable me to shoot purely in 4K.

The letters complete this highlights video I think. While everything else would have probably worked just fine without the letters, Michelle & Liem’s personal words to one another add that extra touch that ties everything all together to really give you a glimpse into their wonderful love story.
