One Year Anniversary

To Maree & Louis from Carl Gaerlan on Vimeo.

  I can't believe it has been over a year since the day I said "I do". It really has been an amazing year and I just love being married to such an incredible man.

 This darling little anniversary video was created by a fellow student at Art school named Carl. He specializes in film/moving image and boy is he talented! It was a collaboration project as I did the styling and he did the filming and directing. The Morrocan Tent was something I used for my 21st to create an area where people could sit on cushions and just relax. It created a beautiful atmosphere especially when illuminated by vintage lamps and candles in jars. For this project, it was really neat to have a romantic night picnic under the stars, surrounded by things that we love. It felt really natural doing this film as we didn't feel like we were acting or pretending just because there was a camera around. I think that says a lot about the talent of the film maker and their personality. You are able to get better shots if you can let people feel relaxed when you are filming them, it's much less staged and rigid.

  Just so you know, the song is called "Bloom" by The Paper Kites and it really complimented the project and our relationship so beautifully.
