Chicago Wedding Video Fultons on the River Spertus

Sarah + Jeff // Chicago Same Day Edit


Chicago wedding couple thanks videographer

Whenever there’s a TV show I want to watch, I mark it down on the calendar and I get excited for that date and time to arrive. I think same day edits are very similar. I love same day edits. I think it’s the anticipation of waiting for that moment when the video will show on the big screen in front of hundreds of people. This day was no exception.

Starting early in the morning, we worked behind-the-scenes, editing footage throughout Sarah and Jeff’s entire wedding day. When it came time to showing the wedding trailer to their guests at the reception, they were amazed. After the trailer showed, many people (complete strangers) walked up to me in tears, hugging me…asking, “How did you do that?” Same day edits are amazing and you should consider including it in your big day.
Thanks to Michael Rastall Photography for sharing this photo of Sarah + Jeff’s reaction while they watched the Same Day Edit:

Meaghan and William were so much fun. They scheduled their big day on New Year’s Eve in Chicago because they wanted to celebrate their wedding and countdown to the New Year with all their family and friends during one big party! We wanted to capture the mood and feeling around Chicago to start the wedding trailer off. So, we captured scenes of the Chicago skyline and lakeshore area. A huge thank you to Robyn Rachel of Robyn Rachel Photography for introducing us to this awesome couple and to Chicago Trolley Rentals for allowing us to put our portable video camera on their “La Contessa trolley” window to get the cool driving shots.
