Endren and Caohien's Wedding

After my hellish day of travel back from New York I shot an awesome wedding. The day started with a traditional tea ceremony and lunch. We then all headed over for the ceremony at Wayfarer's Chapel. That place is absolutely incredible. After the ceremony the wedding party went over to Seal Beach for some pictures and then to the reception site. It was a beautiful wedding with incredible venues and vendors. My favorite vendor of the day was Daniel Boswell of DV Artistry. Daniel and his assistant Wes were a ton of fun to be around and did an incredible job with the videography. They do something I've never seen before. They edit footage from the day and show it at the reception. I, as well as many other photographers, do that with images from the day but I've never seen a videographer do it.

In a couple of my packages I offer iPods loaded with images from the wedding, given to you before you leave the reception. Its such a cool thing for couples to be able to take wedding images with them on their honeymoon. I'm sure there are but I don't know of any other photographers doing this.

When I heard Daniel was editing a video for them I had an idea. "Let's put the video on there as well!" Daniel was stoked about it too so after he finished editing the video for the reception he saved another copy for me. We put the video on there with about 120 images the I'd taken and gave it to them as they left for the night.

This has to be the first time EVER, in the history of the world that that's happened. Video and images from the wedding day, given to the couple on the wedding day... on an iPod. Has anyone ever heard of this happening before? I'm really interested to know. I don't think I've ever been the first to do something.

Anyway, here are images from the day.

hi my name is tyler hoehne and i am wedding photographer based in riverside. i aplaude your ipod success but after every wedding i shoot i give the couple a disk with ALL the images from the day, a finished album, a video from the day that i take with my new Canon SD 1000 (the video feature is amazing! check it out), and i thought the ipod thing was a little drab so i give them a sony PSP loaded with all the pictures and a game of their choice so they can entertain themselves after they look at their AMAZING pictures and video. i hope as "Riverside's Premier Wedding Photographer" a title given to me in a review in the local penny saver, i inspire and motivate you, good luck and never stop dreaming.
