A Crescent City Wedding on the Beach

The bride was from California and the groom from Texas. Due to COVID-19, it made traveling one way or the other difficult. So they decided to do an elopement style wedding on the beach in Crescent City and then share this wedding video with the groom’s family back in Texas at the reception.

I can’t tell you how beautiful and fun it was shooting amongst the redwoods and ferns in the morning and then the arches and sea stacks in the evening. It’s just amazing! If you ever considered doing something like this, I highly recommend it!

The bulk of the film was shot on the Nikon Z6 with the kit 24-70 f/4 lens. I used a combination of handheld shooting and stabilized the rest with the Moza Air2 gimbal. Aerials were captured on the Mavic Air2. Let me know if you have any technical filmmaking questions.

A huge congrats to Heather and Justin! I had the pleasure of heading out to the coast to shoot their wedding film in Crescent City. COVID-19 has thrown many wedding plans out the window and these guys came up with doing an elopement style ceremony on the beach with their closest family and friends and then doing a reception back in Texas where the groom's family lives.Heather Rose Hood @justin.o.hood
