Filming Claudia and Minh’s Pre Wedding love story and their Same Day Edit SDE wedding video was such a blast. It was also our first time working with a child on a pre wedding shoot which meant plenty of improvising on the day of the shoot and having to keep baby Tyrese happy all day long. Working with Tyrese, reminded us of how important our work is. To think that little Tyrese will be watching his mommy and daddy’s love story and wedding video 10 years from now, make our hearts melt and bring little tears to our eyes. We have to capture this family’s love for one another on to the big screen!
When we met them for the first time, both Claudia and Minh were excited to have us as their Wedding cinematographers and couldn’t wait to have us film their pre wedding love story. After telling us that they met almost five years ago in a club, we jumped at the chance to film at such a unique meeting spot. Lucky for us, Minh’s best man runs one of the hottest night club event in Sydney, Bamboo. So we had unprecedented access to film in the club. The shoot had to be quick though, as it was pretty late and Minh had to get home to look after Tyrese, however, Claudia had the night off to party with her bridesmaids.
Originally we wanted to film Minh buying nappies at a convenient store to transition their first meeting to them starting a family together. But we replaced this scene with him changing Tyrese’s nappies with Claudia helping him out. This scene shows a much more intimate part of their family.
The park scene wasn’t one hundred percent smooth though as Tyrese was getting quite tired from a long day and he wanted to stick with his mummy most of the time. In the end, we were able to get him to act with his favourite treat, chuppa chops.
On the day of their wedding, Michelle filmed Claudia and her bridesmaids whereas I filmed Minh and his boys getting ready at his parent’s place. Minh kept cracking jokes all day and was always ready for the camera, making sure I got the shot I wanted or he’ll redo actions again.
Just like at the pre wedding film shoot, Tyrese stuck to Claudia throughout the day, especially in the morning during Claudia’s make up and hair preparations. But by the middle of the day, he was running around and looking super spiffy in his baby tux.
Michelle and I had edited their Same Day Edit SDE Video at Rhodes Phoenix during the reception and premiered it to a crowd of over 300 guests. We love producing Same Day Edit SDE videos and experiencing the audiences’ reactions on the spot. Although we would admit, we do get film premiere jitters all the time!
By the end, Claudia couldn’t stop laughing and her bridesmaids cheered throughout the wedding video. It was awesome to be able to include their group dance in the film as well as Tyrese’s swag reception grand entrance in his mini convertible Mercedes <3
So here we present to you, Claudia and Minh’s Same Day Edit SDE + Pre Wedding Video, “One thing left to do”.
Until next time,
Bernard and Michelle
