Hot Pink and Royal Blue Wedding Theme by Wedding Khoncepts

We videotaped an absolutely wonderful outdoor wedding mid-July
that was held under a huge white tent, with vibrantly decorated reception tables using the wedding colors of hot pink and royal blue. The landscaping beautifully complemented the wedding celebration, including amazing Koi fish pond, huge trees and tall sculpted privacy hedges.

The DJ was a very good guitarist and singer whose company also provided a fun photo booth that was set-up on the large patio deck during the cocktail hour while the newly wedded couple took their formal wedding portraits. The entire day was fabulous.

Dinner was a scrumptious buffet, my favorite type of meal and the cake-pops cooked and designed by the bride’s mother were tasty, it was impossible to eat just one. The evening ended with the guests lighting sparklers as the couple danced their last dance of the evening.

As an extra special treat, we created a private, password protected webpage for our bridal couple which was ready when they returned from their honeymoon. They loved be able to view the entire first hour of their wedding day video online! Due to our upcoming vacation time, they will be so excited to receive all the raw footage of their wedding day several weeks ahead of schedule.

Looking forward to our upcoming September weddings! Enjoy…:-)

3 Things I’ve learned as member of the Pinterest Community by Celeste Sheffey

January 2012 was the first time I had read about Pinterest.  All I could think of was yet another social media site to learn, master and grudgingly spend tons of time on trying to connect with possible clients and engage with my current clients.  I continued to read about Pinterest and even set-up google alerts about Pinterest to see how it would benefit me as a scenic photographer and wedding videographer as well as my customers.

I officially joined Pinterest on January 27, 2012 and thought ok, here we go.  I named one of my first pinboards “Places I’ve been” and promptly uploaded a photo of a beach in Oahu which was immediately “re-pinned” and commented on by several people. As a photographer, I quickly learned my first mistake which was, “pinning” a photo without a watermark. Had I placed a watermark on the image first, everyone that copied it to their pinboards would have my business attached to the photo.

The second lesson was learning to participate in pinning images that either had a web link to the original source or pinning user images. Pinning just a Google image without a verifiable sources is a no no.

I’ve also found that Pinning my business images is fine and ok as long as I also Pin and comment on other images. It’s not all about me and what I do.

As a visual artist and former collector of ripped out magazine pages on a variety of topics, Pinterest is a wonderful tool that appeals to me on so many levels. Especially being able to share colorful wedding themes with some of my wedding clients as well as links to helpful wedding planning sites.

My son and new daughter-in-law’s August wedding celebration

My oldest son and his fiancee were married in August 2011, outdoors, at a very lovely country club. Although it was windy and a bit cloudy and overcast, we were thankful the weather held steady throughout the ceremony and portrait session as the bride had her heart set on an outdoor ceremony. At one point I even had to run interference with the event coordinator who wanted to move it inside.

My daughter-in-law chose gray and vintage pinks as her wedding colors. My son was very  handsome in his black tuxedo and pale pink vest. When you have a fiancee who works in high-end retail shops you get used to “different” color choices  🙂

For  11 years, I’ve been the person videotaping the weddings. Their wedding was a major challenge as I now had to  be, in front of the cameras. So here I am, again stepping out of my comfort zone, posing in my burgundy mother-in-law dress, chosen after trying on many many styles with the assistance of my 2 daughters, the bride’s two sisters and the bride.

My granddaughter aka, 3rd assistant, kindly agreed to videotape the wedding ceremony. During the reception I happily videotaped the first 90 minutes of the reception as the bride groom were the only ones announced into the room. The rest of the time, the video camera was recording the reception while centered down onto the main floor.

My son and new daughter’s wedding day was exquisite – dressed like a princess bride in her stunning customized Vera Want wedding gown with matching custom wedding invitation. Our families are thrilled as they journey into this new phase of their lives.

Ian and Yvette’s Wedding Day Photo Collage by Wedding Khoncepts

Purple elegance abounds throughout Yvette and Ian’s May wedding day celebration. Even the rainbow swash, in the background, painted in1971 by artist Corita Kent (1918-1986) made a perfect complement to the ‘Sweetheart Table’.

Question: Why do Brides hire a wedding videographer?

Hello to all the Brides and Brides to be. Many congratulations to you and the groom.

I’ve videotaped many weddings over the years and have loved each and every one as a unique and gifted celebration.  It’s truly a priviledge, to be chosen, as one of the wedding service vendors entrusted to capture your wedding day memories in a way that will bring you both years of  joy. 

Sharing your views on some of the reasons you chose and/or are choosing to have your wedding videotaped would be a super favor. I’ve set up the poll in a way that reads percentages so it’s totally anonymous. Your answers will  allow me to tweak and/or revise my current wedding videotaping option plans based on what Brides REALLY want as it relates to having your wedding day celebration videotaped. 

So please take a moment to voice your opinions by selecting the appropriate response or feel free to supply one not listed. 

Many thanks in advance! and if you’re a Bride- To-Be getting married in Boston, MA  please contact me and let’s see if we arrange to work some magic for your special day.
