Much heart, time, and energy goes into planning a wedding and in the blink of an eye it is over. There are some professionals though that are able to capture the true emotion and festivity of that day allowing you to hold onto those amazing moments. One of those vendors is Glenn Maningas from MPW Media. We asked him for a quick interview to give us some behind the scenes scoop.
What are the most exciting trends that you are seeing when it comes to wedding videos?
SAME DAY EDIT is the trend today, making a movie-like highlight clip that will be shown at the end of the night. All cinematic shooting angles including video footage using drones.
What advice do you give your clients who are nervous in front of the camera?
Be comfortable with your vendors first, then you will be comfortable on the camera too.
How much do you ask for input do you ask from your clients when editing?
We always have a final consultation with the bride & groom prior to the wedding. This way we can take their input and we can prepare them. We always ask for their ideas that we can incorporate with videos, and that includes music too. We do not forget family questions and any love story history that will make the video more personal for the couple.
What do you like most about your job?
I love my job because I love to celebrate with people and be a part of one of the most, if not the most important, day of their life.
What led you into this business?
My own wedding is not memorable enough, no decent photos, no decent video because I just asked my cousin to shoot it. That led me to think “this is a big waste of an important memory. I can never celebrate my big day again and I have no memories left because I never hired a professional.”
Can you recall one of your favorite videos you’ve created and why?
This multiple day wedding (shown below) is very memorable because of the vibrant colors and happiness on everyone. You can appreciate how people of different cultures still celebrate their own tradition here in America.
