It’s great to see good friends getting married.
I had never visited Salem Oregon before, and a road trip means, bring your camera along. I never thought I would end up using it to do this.
Mark and Jessica never asked me to do a video for them, and I wasn’t planning to either. I was just a guest. All I was planning on doing was to take some photos of my trip, but when I arrived to the location, I couldn’t help but try and do a short film for them. Every other guest had a photo camera, I was in a unique position to give Mark and Jessica something more.
Sure, I wish I had a crew with me, or more equipment such as a tripod, or a monopod. Definitely and audio recorder, but sometimes you realize that a story can be powerful enough to not be drowned behind the lack of technical instruments. I did this video before FlyFeNniX Productions was created, but I consider it the birth of the idea for which we now aim for as a company. The idea that it’s about the people getting married and their story. Not just about getting a video of highlights of a day, but to tell a unique story behind one of the most memorable days a couple will share. This wedding was an inspiration for me to tell these stories. This was the beginning of FlyFeNniX Weddings.
Mark and Jessica, thank you for sharing such and honest love with each others and those who are close to you.
