In mid-February 2016, Katie put a post up on her Facebook page asking if anyone was interested in shooting some video footage of her wedding. At the time, I was preparing to launch my photography/cinematography business and her request, and acceptance to hire me, was just what I needed to kickstart it all!

On April 2nd, I swallowed away my nerves and shot my first official wedding video for Jennifer Bangoura Productions. It was such a delight to share in all of the special moments of Katie and Barrett's wedding day and reinforced why I wanted to do this in the first place - to capture real moments for people to look back on and remember the day by. 

Katie is a friend of my sister's from undergrad and she never ceases to crack me up. You'll see in the video below that her ability to make anyone around her laugh is shared by her goofball husband, Barrett. What they share in goofiness is equally matched in their love for one another. Break out your box of tissues around 1:16 - Barrett's reaction to Katie walking down the aisle made me tear up not only during the ceremony but many times while editing the video!
