I think I might have mentioned this before, but hiring a cinematographer is the one part of our elopement I wished we had splurged on. Knowing what I know now, I would have cut corners somewhere else and hired Joel Serrato in a second to document our ceremony especially since our families couldn’t be there with us. Plus, I see how much my nieces and nephew LOVE to watch their parents wedding video and a VHS tape from a camcorder(which we had) has a hard time cutting it once you’ve seen a Super 8 film:)

You have mentioned it before that you wished you had hired a cinematographer – when you posted Myriah’s wedding from 2009. Your comment that you wished you hired one, combined with Joel’s video of Myriah’s wedding, was what caused me to hire one. I still go back and watch that video – it’s my favorite highlight of all time!
