Photographer Promo Film

Oh friends… if only you guys knew how excited we were to finally be sharing our brand new promo film with you all today! This is our very first time ever having a promo film done, and our videographer Noah Oehler did an absolutely incredible job with this first film of ours! It’s truly been a labor of love all summer long, and we are so excited to share the final result. πŸ™‚ We also are so excited to share a little glimpse into what Luke and I love most about this film of ours:

But we didn’t want to just pop on here and share our promo film… we also wanted to share a bit of our hearts behind our video and a little glimpse into what Luke and I love most about this film of ours! Here are a few things we adore about this little project.Β ????????

  • It shows us doing what we love. Noah was able to join us on both a wedding day and at an anniversary session we shot, and we adore the fact that not only can you see us actually working with and photographing a couple, but you also get to see the fact that we spend a bunch of time just talking with and getting to know our clients. Whether it’s laughing with them (because let’s be real, nuzzling in the middle of a field while cars go by isn’t exactly normal) or just chatting while we walk to the next location, this is all about the relationship for us and we really believe this video conveys that.
  • Our video was shot by our friend Noah, who I’ve known for years and years and who also shot our wedding video! It was so fun to come alongside a creative friend and create something new and beautiful for our business. Noah put hours upon hours (upon hours!!) of work and effort into this video, set aside so much time and many a day to film with us and brainstorm of us, and we were continually blown away by how much he cared about this project and making sure it was more than just a promo film. We can’t thank you enough, Noah- truly!! You are so talented.
  • It talks about our story. We say all the time that one of the reasons we love this job so much is because we were in our couples’ shoes SO recently. The last thing you hear us talk about in this film is the fact that one conversation on an October Friday night is what started the crazy adventure we are now on together, and you get to see a little glimpse of our story there. We know that every couple has one of those moments where you just KNOW in your head that you found the love of your life, and we wanted to personalize our business a little bit and make sure our couples know that we GET IT and know how they’re feeling. Plus, a little bit of our wedding video is incorporated into this video, which is such a sweet touch. (See if you can spot us!)
  • The couples featured in this film are so near and dear to our hearts- plus, they were totally unphased by being photographed AND filmed at the same time! πŸ˜‰ Mallory and Josh, thank you for welcoming Noah into your portrait time on your wedding day… we appreciate you so much! And Sam and Brandon, thank you for making time to be such an integral part of this project- you guys know we love you and love hanging out with you!! (PS- friends, after they joined us for a long night of filming for this video, they sentΒ usΒ a gift card for a date night to Blaze Pizza. I mean, come on, right?! The absolute sweetest.)

If you haven’t had a chance to watch our new little film yet, we think you should! πŸ˜‰ Take a peek below, friends… this project is so near and dear to our heart. And to everyone who HAS watched it and shared so much encouragement and love with us about it…Β thank you, from the bottom of our hearts. This little business of ours wouldn’t be nearly the same without the support of so many people we adore coming alongside us in every season! It means the whole world. ????

Xoxo, friends!
Caitlin and Luke
