I feel like I have known Jeremy & Ashley for a few years now, but it was not until 2013, where we are able to really hang out and get to know one another. In the world of wedding cinematography, there are a small handful of videographers out there, maybe six or seven in Virginia, that I talk to on a regular basis and who do awesome work. Jeremy started doing cinema about two years ago and I noticed immediately. We started talking more and more, & I learned about Ashley. In 2011, I was shooting in Charlotte, NC for my amazing friends Ashley Goodwin & Marshall, when I was finally able to meet Jeremy & Ashley during the reception. They were both extremely fun and amazing to hang out with. We talked throughout the night about the craft of cinema & life. They both are incredibly sweet and loving people, which radiates with everyone they meet. So fast forward to 2012 and specifically the huge wedding photo conference called WPPI. Unfortunately I decided not to go because I was twenty and Vegas just is not that fun when your not 21, so I missed out big time. At one point Jeremy was talking with my good friends over at Stillmotion, and the possibility of him getting engaged to Ashley. I’m unsure of how it happened but if Stillmotion & Justin + Mary shot the wedding, he would propose to Ashley in Vegas. Well it happened and they got married the very next day. Stillmotion made an incredible film of it that you can watch here, and you can see Justin + Mary’s images here. Needless to say, when Jeremy told me that they were getting married again for family & friends in October of 2013, and that they wanted me to create of film of it, I had a lot to live up to. Luckily, they gave me some pretty amazing people to collaborate with and to make it amazing.
Jeremy and Ashley chose to have “take two” of their wedding at the gorgeous Silverbrook Farm, which is outside of Purcellville, Virginia. The foggy/overcast weather really created more of an English feeling and look to the day, which complimented all of the rustic wedding details. The whole event was intimate and yet extremely fun at the same time. I’ve met a lot of awesome friends through Ashley & Jeremy like Jen Jar & Nick who are were there to celebrate and make the party amazing. My friends Justin & Mary were there to document the day, as well as Missy Christianson of Antonia Christianson Events to keep things running smoothly. Jeremy told me to run with the film and do what I wanted (thank you for trusting me), so I changed up my editing style just a little bit for this. I’ve poured a few weeks into this project, and I’m so excited to share this with everyone who made it possible and so amazing! Enjoy!
