Shooting Our “Save The Date” Video

Jennifer and Jihoon received their wedding photos the other day, and it seems they were very happy with the results. Another congratulations to them! If you haven’t seen the wedding photos yet, you can click here.

Last week, my fiance Julie and I shot our “save the date” video with the help of my friend since high school, Youmin Woo! We were on a tight schedule so all the shooting had to be done within a 4 hour window. The concept behind the video is very simple and the final product planned at under 1 minute; still, we were barely able to fit in the shooting in just under 4 hours. Two cameras were used on set, one Canon 7D and one Canon T2i, although the T2i served more as a prop than for its video function. Youmin brought all the glass used for the shoot as well, which consisted of the Canon 24-70mm f2.8L (for some action shots), the Canon 16-35mm f2.8L (for establishing shots and as a prop), and the Canon 50mm f1.4 (most prominently used). The video is currently in post production, but I thought I’d share with you all some of the production stills while I finish cutting up the video:

Big shout out again to my good friend Youmin Woo for shooting our video for us! She’s a graphic designer currently finishing her studies at the School of Visual Arts. Please check our her other awesome work at her webpage at!
