Behind the Scenes Film: Wedded Weekend
Back in January, I had the privilege of filming a Behind the Scenes Film to promote Wedded Weekend, a styled shoot/creative retreat led by the amazingly talented Kelsey Vawter. Wedded Weekend is all about creatives coming together for a weekend of creativity and community. It was four days jam-packed with styled shoots and mini workshops. Almost 9 months later, I'm so happy to say that it has been featured on Catalyst Wedding Co.! I couldn't be more pleased to see it not only published, but also used to promote an almost completely booked Wedded Weekend 2018!
The setting of the 2017 retreat was in the beautiful hill country at D6 Retreat outside of Austin. The landscape definitely set the scene, and we were surprised by gorgeous fog throughout the weekend. Even though it was cold, I couldn't get enough of the chilly weather and the beautiful effect that the fog created.
With 12 styled shoots, I came back with a crazy amount of footage! I loved shooting all of the beauty that the vendors put together that weekend, but in some ways I always dread coming back with too much good footage, because that makes for very hard decisions in editing! I wanted the film to show off the many shoots of the weekend, while also highlighting all of the crazy talented vendors... while also being a reasonable length. A tough feat! It definitely all came together with this Behind the Scenes Film.
Apart from all the beautiful scenes I was able to capture, one of the main reasons I enjoyed the weekend so much was that I met so many wonderful people! I've become good friends with and have collaborated with several of these talented vendors throughout this year. After attending this retreat, I definitely want retreats to be apart of my creative process. They are such a wonderful way to be inspired and re-energized alongside other creatives.
If you're considering attending a retreat, be sure to check out Wedded Weekend! They are almost completely booked for another amazing weekend this January! And if you're hosting a retreat or workshop yourself and would like a Behind the Scenes Film for your next event, feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd love to hear from you!
