Video Obsession

I am not the typical girl when it comes to thinking about weddings. I don't have my event planned out, nor have I ever sat and fantasized about it. However, I have an extraodinarily large number of friends who make their living through weddings in some form or another: photographers, makeup artists, florists, planners. And I have them to blame for my latest obsession: WEDDING VIDEOs.

They come in various form from the simple Super 8 style, to the grand sweeping Oscar worthy documentary. Here are some of my favorites. Watch, swoon, and savor.
You're Welcome.

First up is the epic Oscar Worthy Cinematography from my fellow High School Alumnus Kevin Shahinian, and his company Pacific Pictures.
This work is my favorite, and they even make mini-films about the couple that takes 4-5 days of shooting. . . as they say on their site, "Considering budgets from $20,000.00 (US) and up."
Here is a sample of their less expensive (starting at $4,800 ouch!) but equally stunning work!

On the polar opposite of the wedding video world, here is the simply sweet stop animation style from Tiger In a Jar.
