Being a wedding photographer has one advantage, you get to see everything that all of the other companies in town can do for a bride and groom for their wedding. Specifically what they can do when putting together a slide show of old photos to show at a wedding reception. I’m sure all of you have seen these and you know as well as I do that what you normally see can be done in iPhoto or Powerpoint in a matter of minutes.
The difference is that the ones we usually see are done professionally and the bride and groom paid for it to look just like it came out of iPhoto or Powerpoint.
So seeing as we had to endure another one Saturday night I thought I’d share the one that I put together for one of our recent couples (I hope they won’t mind if I share their slideshow). I don’t understand why it is so tough to make a slide show fun and interesting, and with this one I tried to go for a deeper meaning to the photos than what most slide shows can do. See if you can catch the deeper meaning in the video.
Of course you don’t have to watch the entire thing, it’s 10 minutes of video and you don’t know these people, but if you want to see my version of a wedding slide show this is the real thing.
