There is always a very first time. And this was my very first time in the Ville Lumiere! Paris is known as the city of lovers, the city of artists and bohemians. Surely it is one of the most beautiful cities in the world and one of the most desirable destination wedding; expecially for wedding videographers! I have to admit, it’s nice to work on Lake Como, Venice, Tuscany and the Amalfi Coast, all of which are fantastic destination weddings and I couldn’t be happier living in a place surrounded by so much beauty like Italy, but Paris is the dream and the milestone of every wedding cinematographer. Being able to make a wedding film among the streets of this city was an honor and also a great pleasure, and I can’t thank enough Ava and Andy for giving me this fantastic opportunity.
You can see in this wedding film trailer glimpses of the Trocadero, of the Alexander III Bridge, of the view of Paris from the exclusive top roof of the Four Season Charles V Hotel. I also enjoyed getting around the streets and neighborhoods of Paris scouting and seeking interesting angles for the B-roll I usually use in my intros; I”m sure I’ve never brought home so much footage…guys, at the end of the day the pedometer counted 20km!
A big thank also to my new buddy Darek Smetiana, a great wedding photographer whom I shared two fantastic days with and … many, many kilometers 🙂
