Same Day Edit

Ashley + Nathan // Chicago Union Station Same Day Edit


After looking at many videographer options for their wedding, Ashley and Nathan saw our work and fell in love. Through the help and coordination of Big City Bride, all of their magical wedding dreams were transformed into a beautiful tapestry.

They came to us with the idea of doing a same day edit. Because St. James Chapel couldn’t fit all of their guests, they wanted everyone to share in the joy of their beautiful day. We put together a slideshow of their baby + family + dating pictures, added some speeches and video from the dress rehearsal night and combined all of that into this wedding trailer, which was shown at their reception.

Decked out in black and gold (Purdue University’s colors-where Ashley and Nathan both graduated), Chicago’s Union Station looked absolutely stunning. There were so many details in this wedding….the amazing dresses, the beautiful cake, the royal trumpeters, the painter…we could go on and on, but watch for yourself…this unforgettable wedding video trailer.

Christen + Mike // Chicago Same Day Edit


There’s something about a Same Day Edit (SDE). It’s the ability to watch amazing moments that happened throughout the wedding day. It’s instant gratification of an already emotional day. Whenever we post a wedding trailer online, we don’t always get to see everyone’s raw emotions and reactions while watching their trailer, but with an SDE, we do. Every time we show an SDE, it’s humbling to see the pure emotion that comes from watching our work.

Christen had been following our work for awhile; even before she was engaged. She told us that when Mike popped the question, she knew that our studio had to film their wedding. What transpired was an amazing journey with a wonderful couple. Always deferring to our creativity, Christen and Mike gave us full creative license to produce an awesome wedding trailer. We deployed our 12’ camera crane, Steadicam, and multiple cameras to document their entire day. These are cinematic tools that you will often see in the movies, but rarely in a wedding video. Handing off footage to our editor throughout the day, we were able to put together a video that had people in tears.

Christen and Mike, the journey has been amazing. You are a wonderful couple and we’ve enjoyed working with you and are honored you chose us to document your beautiful day.
