We always love shooting our wedding films in St. Thomas and St. John so when we were fortunate to line two of our destination weddings up on the same weekend - only one ferry ride apart from each other - we were thrilled. It’s too bad we could not stay longer because the US Virgin Islands are just such a magical place to shoot.
Thank you US Airways for not screwing up like you usually do. With last minute destination shoots like these, we don’t have a lot of travel choices. Most of the time, flying PHL to STT and back is uneventful, but it’s always risky to try to cut the time too close, ESPECIALLY with US Airways, but Jordan and I had the most enjoyable flight down AND back. No lines at ticketing, security, OR for the obligatory shot of rum that was handed to us at the airport when we arrived. Good for you, US Air - keep up the good work!
The Team this weekend included Jordan, Mike, and myself on a non-stop weekend, including waking up before the chickens on Saturday for the sunrise. Unfortunately, we miscalculated and got up too early. One hour of waiting in the dark was worth it, though.
One of our favorite things to do is to get some establishing shots. We are like moths to a flame with sunrises, sunsets, and unique cloud cover and lighting situations that will help our clients remember the day as it was. In St. John, we even caught some amazing rainbows right before the ceremony.
Most of our clients prefer to keep their films private but if we get the green light from our clients, we’ll post a trailer or a highlight reel here on our blog, so stay tuned.
