Wedding Photography and Videography in Utah

We love doing family videos. Working along side the photographer while a family is getting pictures taken or even just doing the video by itself, they alway turn out amazing and The Miller Family is no different. This is the second one we’ve done for them so the kids weren’t nervous at all around us which always makes for better video.

Even though we do a ton of weddings, we still love to venture out and try new things.  One of our close friends in the wedding business was welcoming her husband home from over seas and we had to be there.  We put a wireless mic on her and then let the magic happen as it always does.  For this video, having 18 Bronze Star Soldiers Return Home to cheering crowds and the SLC Airport was simply amazing.  News cameras were everywhere, teary eyed spouses were everywhere, ecstatic kids were bouncing off the walls, and security was letting it all happen (as if they could do anything to stop it anyway) lol. Seeing these ordinary men and women who sacrificed so much to serve our country become heroes in the eyes of everyone there, seeing the love of family, seeing the respect from everyone that was just passing by and even a few who stopped to just watch, was something I was always cherish knowing we have normal people in this country who can do extraordinary things. God Bless The USA!!

Ashley & Nate had a bit of a different vision for their wedding film and you will catch it once you watch it.  We started out a few weeks before the wedding and went up American Fork Canyon to get some of the fall colors and it turned out fantastic.  We could have not asked for a more perfect setting.  The twist is that they wanted the shots from the canyon mixed into their Temple shots and I love how it turned out.  I’ve never done a SLC Temple Wedding quite like this.

Close to 80% of our weddings are from referrals from past clients and Amy & Charlie are no exception. It is so fun to get to know families and the fun things that they do. Another nice thing is that they aren’t nervous when a camera is pointed at them, they begin to be completely natural which makes for even better videos. Amy & Charlie’s SLC Temple Wedding was so much fun. Both families were excited to be there and it showed. And you can’t beat this incredible weather for a November wedding. You’d think this was in California except for that iconic SLC Temple in the background of half of the shots. And then there was the reception at the U of U Crimson Room – what a view!! All in all, another great SLC Temple wedding!!

Soul mates – thats the best way to describe Mandy & Jon. Just the way they looked at each other at the SLC Temple and the reception later that night with absolute love and admiration. The day was perfect (amazing for a January wedding – I was only wearing a light jacket). Winter weddings in Utah can get pretty crazy and for the weather to be relatively warm like it was made everything perfect. We were able to spend enough time without getting cold at all really. The reception was also amazing, the chose The Old Meeting House in SLC. Even though they didn’t choose us to be there photographer, we still were able to work well with Kelly at Bella Day Photography. We have shot several weddings with her. If there is one thing I can recommend is to make sure your photographer and videographer have already established a good working relationship. Things just turn out better that way. Obviously we are partial to our own photographers and they do a great job but we also work well with many other photographers. That happens when you’ve been shooting wedding for over 15 years. : )

This Lake Powell Wedding Highlight Film was one of my favorite weddings to film ever!! First off, how can you go wrong when you get married at Lake Powell’s Antelope Point Marina? Second, the weather was perfect, not too hot at all (this wedding was on September 8th, 2012) which made some of the scenic shots too die for. Last but not least, anytime you have a destination wedding, you know that all of your guests really want to be there with you celebrating your wedding. That also makes for great shots to use in the wedding highlight film. Megan & Dillon were so relaxed the whole day. You could tell from the beginning that they were in love. All of their closest friends were there which makes the celebration even that much better. Immediately following the ceremony, we began getting shots of the family and friends, which is typical for a wedding, but because of the layout of the dock, we had to shoot across a section of water so I think everyone was nervous about someone falling in. Then, once that was done, we took Megan & Dillon over on the rocks by the water. It was here that we got our most favorite shots of the day. Unfortunately, we had some time restraints, like you usually do at a wedding, so we had to finish up a lot sooner than I wanted to but we were able to get the shots we needed to make this amazing wedding film. Once we got back to the marina, dinner started, which was amazing btw, and shortly after dinner, Megan & Dillon danced with their Dad and Mom. Having 6 kids, I always wonder what that moment will be like and when I saw the love they had with their parents, I could only hope that one day, when I dance with my daughters or my wife dances with our sons, that it would be similar. It was obvious that they were close with the parents; seeing the smiles, the tears, the hugs….. I wish all of the daddy/daughter and mother/son dances could be like Megan & Dillons. And then the party started, they hired a fantastic club style DJ who was mixing it up the whole night. At the end of the night, we climbed in these mini cars driven by the staff at Antelope Point Marina, and made the long trek back up to the parking lot where the sweetest BMW 7 series car was waiting to take them to their hotel. I can’t wait to go there again!!

After the wedding, Megan wrote this on WeddingWire.com about Pointe Digital. http://www.weddingwire.com/reviews/pointe-digital-lehi/66bcba9f968f973f.html
“I would recommend Pointe Digital to ANYONE look for a videographer. By the time I had considered a videographer my photography was already contracted….no problem for these guys! They worked hand in hand with my photographer and created such a beautiful video for us, I can’t believe this isn’t the FIRST thing I booked for my wedding. To any bride on the fence about videography, if you hire Pointe Digital you will NOT regret your investment when you get to watch all the parts of your wedding you did and did not get to experience, they get it all! In such a whirlwind of a day its easy to forget some of the small things that happened….you get to relive them when they’re captured so expertly by your videographer! As a plus, if there’s anything (or anyone) that you WANT to forget, they can make that happen to! 🙂 Could not be happier with my experience with Pointe Digital!”
