“We do not remember days, we remember moments." ― Cesare Pavese

The Power of Video

Did you know YouTube is the second largest search engine in the world, with 100 hours of video uploaded every minute? Wow! This got us to thinking about different ways to tell a story. So recently, we have been incorporating video into our work and love the impact it has on storytelling; the work of an artist, a behind-the-scenes look of a designer, a witness to a secret Columbia Gorge Elopement. We will always prefer photography as our primary medium, but we are so excited about video as another artistic expression. It's a way to see movement, experience a human connection, and feel the mood and emotion conveyed through body language and expressions. 

Lights. Camera. Action!

The wedding highlight video below shares the beautiful story of Leslie and Steve's secret Columbia Gorge Elopement. You can just feel the romance between them. Leslie and Steve can share these clips with their loved ones, who can feel like they were there for these magical moments. Everything from getting ready, to the ceremony, to the final toast are pieced together and set to music.

In the behind-the-scenes look below, we shared everything that's happening around the photographs of an Ellen Marie Design Bohemian Wedding photo shoot for her inspired adornments and headpieces. You can see hair and makeup, arranging of the veils, the studio setting, and it almost feels like you're taking a stroll though Paris.

Sarah Wolf of Wolf Ceramics is an artist in Portland, Oregon, and we had the pleasure of showcasing her "behind the wheel" in her element. The video below gives you an inside look at her process in turning clay into amazing works of art.

Finally, we had some fun with Dustin and Ellie (and Winston, their charming Yorkshire Terrier) touring Klum House in Portland, Oregon. The video captures the magic between these professional makers and shows the work that goes into making the goods and wares they produce. 

As we capture your story through the beauty of still images, we would be honored to document it with video, too!
