What happens when a Philadelphia fireman meets an adorable nurse (or in his words, “this perfect woman”) at the Shore one fateful Firemen’s Weekend? Here’s a hint: years later, that same fireman is transformed into a dapper groom, and that nurse has become his beautiful bride…Hair & Makeup: I Do Hair & Makeup Music: Masquerade Photography: Michael Chadwick Venue: Pen Ryn Estate
Apologies to our readers (& viewers) for being seriously behind on blogging. On a positive note, it’s a testament to how busy we have been over the past several weeks, as fall wedding season is in full swing. And, our commercial work for several clients, including the Philadelphia Eagles, is also commanding much of our time and attention.
This Highlight is deserving of serious fanfare and attention, as it is a testament to our belief that all LOVE IS LOVE. We are proud and honored to debut one of our first same-sex wedding films (we hope it’s the first of many): Ivn & Ed’s Eastern Shore Wedding at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club.
We share Ivn’s hope that one day “same-sex weddings” will simply be called “weddings.” While eagerly awaiting that day, we recognize that currently, our same-sex couple clients may find themselves in an uncomfortable or even hostile situation, as they come out to their families and friends, as well as vendors like us, who may not be welcoming and supportive. For that reason, we often provide the names of LGBT-friendly wedding professionals and other resources to our clients (and within our local community here in Philadelphia).
Ivn & Ed’s wedding marked their ten-year anniversary as a couple. Hopefully in the next ten years, we will come to recognize and accept the love shared between all people as equal and beautiful. If you’re interested in joining us in the fight for marriage equality, please visit Freedom to Marry.
Join Be Films on Sunday, October 19th in Cherry Hill, New Jersey for a full day intensive. At our wedding cinema workshop we’ll talk storytelling, and get technical, devoting time to everything from building compelling sequences, to audio and lighting. Finally, we’ll end the day with insights into the business of wedding filmmaking.
We’ll spend time discussing how to apply wedding cinematography skills in order to build a well-rounded portfolio, generate commercial business (or build a hybrid business if you’re a photographer), and explore other artistic opportunities for DSLR filmmaking.
