Shooting “Will you marry me?”
A while back I was fortunate enough to work with one of the best wedding videographers in the country, Ian Salim of Weddingclip. The project is the launching of a new engagement ring line, from the company that bring us the popular “The Promises” wedding rings. As you know, here in Indonesia we don’t quite ‘propose’ the ladies we want to spend the rest of our life with, at least that is what I know. Here we’re more with ‘clearing things up’ first with the in-laws 🙂 Remember ‘Meet The Parents’? It’s kinda like that around here. So these people are trying to sail the uncharted waters, so we’ll see whether this will be a hit.
The concept revolves around the great times this couple had up until the ‘down on your knee’ time. So we shot them having great times, romantic times, hard times, we’ll you know the rest. Me and Victor shot side by side with Ian and Fira for three days in various locations and had such a great time. They make such a great team, shooting and directing in turns. I long admire Ian’s work, we had planned to do some projects together but we never seem to find the time until now, so this was kinda exciting for me. The finished work, as with everything that comes out of their door, is amazing.
As with the images, I think they used them all over the last Weddingku.com exhibition (I could not make it) – have you seen them before?
