Philip + LilyWren // Wedding | Super 8mm at Panorama Farms

As a filmmaker, Super 8 is one of those formats that I dream about shooting. Whenever someone appreciates it and is willing to hire us for the beautiful look it creates, I’m ecstatic. The format was meant for consumers in the 60’s and 70’s. It has a nostalgic vibe that is simply irresistible and works perfectly for capturing a wedding day. With Super 8, it really is all about the moments, and having fun, so its nice to throw in some wild snap zooms or other movements that I would not dare try with digital. I was excited to return to Panorama Farms to document Philip and LilyWren’s amazing love story. I loved the intimate setting of close friends and family in the sprawling hills near Earlysville, Virginia. The ceremony location was gorgeous and overlooked the beautiful rustic barn below. After the ceremony, Philip & LilyWren dug up a bottle of bourbon they had buried to get the party started and it certainly did not stop. Their band Soul Expressions only added to the mix with an amazing performance. Also, I was especially excited to meet one of my favorite National Geographic photographers, William Allard, who was a guest at the wedding. I hope you enjoy a small look at Philip & LilyWren’s amazing wedding below!

    Lily Collins - Choosing Josh Gooden to capture our wedding day was by far the best decision we made! Not only was Josh extremely professional, he was kind, welcoming, and helpful to our family and guests. Josh was able to capture each moment of the day in a quiet and noninvasive way. It was wonderful to see Josh truly enjoying the day and relishing in his profession, rather than simply going through the ‘hired motions.’ Because of Josh’s clear excitement for our wedding day and obvious love for his work, I knew that Josh would put his heart and soul into his editing and his final product. That, he did! In fact, he substantially succeeded our expectations! From the day my husband proposed, throughout our engagement, the wedding planning process, the actual wedding day… and all the way to just a few days ago, I had been wondering why I hadn’t cried! I had imagined and expected all these milestones to be accompanied by joyous tears… which never came! With that said, I have felt nothing but happiness and excitement this year! However, it felt wonderful when the happy tears finally came the first time we viewed Josh’s final video of our wedding! Since then, my husband and I have watched it numerous times…daily! Each time, I get choked up and cannot hold back a huge smile at the same time. It is so moving to see such a perfect day expressed in a video that genuinely reflects our personalities and compatibility! Josh truly captured US in the most authentic ways! The way Josh was able to pinpoint the most meaningful moments of the day and produce the most accurate and poignant representation of our character as a couple is beyond talent. This will be a treasure in which we can reminisce with forever! I will be bragging about Josh’s work all over Virginia!
