Video Dabbles and Our Cross Country Drive

Believe it or not, this is a wedding related post. I know I am stalling on the photos of the wedding day... now that I've work all the way up to it, I am leaving you hanging for a bit until I can get more photos from my wonderful wonderful photog.

But in the mean time, I thought I'd fill you in on something I've been working on. For anyone who doesn't remember, I am not a big fan of wedding videography. I do like the idea of having a video of the wedding, but I don't feel the need to make this my film debut and pay thousands of dollars to look like something hollywood produced.

So I had the bright idea of handing my parents video camera to my cousin Molly and have her capture the day. Unfortunately, we had a snafu in that the video camera broke. Oops. But - my dad's point and shoot digital camera has a huge memory card and video capability. See her below the yellow arrow? Yup, thats my sweetheart videographer cousin.With that fantastica camera catching moments... I knew I was going to need to know how to edit some video. So I pulled up iMovie and started working with a few video clips and photos from oru cross country move. This was the outcome! (Obviously I still have a few kinks to work out.)


Anyone else learn new software for their wedding photos or videos?
