2014 has been one of our busiest years thus far. We are so thankful to have worked on documentaries, weddings, and several commercial projects that I am editing and cannot wait to share. With that said, it has also been a year of realizing that I cannot do this alone. Serena came into my life a few years ago. We became friends, but we never talked as much until this year. We compliment each other in so many ways and it really only made sense to start working more together. Serena moved to Charlottesville this year and brought her incredible photography business with her. She officially replaced my former second shooter (aka my father), and it’s been such an amazing journey to work together when we are both available to do so. As a photographer, she brings unique compositions, high attention to detail, and an amazing sense of curiosity towards filmmaking that compliments the films we create. She has helped on several events this year, and we are planning to team up on a unique photo/video collection for our clients next year.
A beautiful wedding in Charleston was the very first event Serena helped on, and the reason for this post today. She has learned so much over the last few months, and it has been amazing to see her grow as a filmmaker. We shot a few rolls of leftover Super 8mm film (Tri-X) of our time there, as well as took a few images of each other throughout the city. With my editing schedule, I could not find the time to edit the personal film of us, but Serena was on it and made it pretty awesome. I hope you enjoy some of our images of Charleston, and our fun little film below!
