Nicole & Cameron: A Love Story

I wanted to feature this Love Story video as a way to expose you all to another option you have for video coverage, in addition to wedding day stories. A Love Story (aka Engagement Session), is essentially a short video that tells the story of how you and your fiance met, fell in love, got engaged, etc, all interspersed with clips of the two of you interacting together, having fun, and of course smooching!

My husband and I made this award-winning video as a wedding gift for my now-married sister and her husband. It was a blast to shoot, and we're all so happy with how it turned out. As you'll see, the personalities of Nicole and Cameron come shining through in the funnest way.



There's something I really love about these types of videos. On your wedding day you're perhaps anxious, distracted, self-conscious, and on your best behavior. But here in a Love Story, you're yourself: in your favorite outfit, goofing around with your fiance and talking about everything you adore in him. Show this to your kids and grandkids, and they'll really understand who you were at this moment in time.

Pin It Now!

Just Wonderful! Very feeling and natural story! One of the best love story what I have seen. Very nice couple. And their "Rocky" and robotic movements are awesome!
I think they will treasure those moments none the less than wedding.

Unbe-freakin-lievable!  I can't even begin to say how much I LOVED this video.

When people use phrases like "respects everyone", "lets me be who i am", "makes me feel loved", and "i feel honored" in describing their relationship it always moves me. I am so mad that I don't know them because if I did I feel like I could be more happy-er for them. :)

It may be my favorite VMP video ever, and that's saying ALOT since you filmed me once. :)

Amazing! It was so much fun to do this with you and Brent. Cameron and I can't believe how wonderful it turned out and are sooooooo glad to have this. I can watch it over and over. And I look forward to the years ahead when we can look back and be reminded of what we were like during this special time in our lives. Thank you so much! It's more than we could have ever asked for.

WOW...just...WOW. Vanessa this video was so awesome. I was completely taken by the video and I have no connection to your sister or Cameron. I can't imagine how someone who is connected to them sees this video. There won't be a dry eye in the room.

BTW, you and your sister share so many expressions and inflections it's crazy!

wow - that is so beautiful! It's like watching the Notebook minus the forties fashion! They will be able to watch that video in ten, twenty years and always be able to remember the way they felt about one another when their love was new.
