JONATAN + MARIA - THE "ELOPE TO NYC" WEDDING VIDEO!

I've been really blessed to work some amazing, impressive people.  Jonatan and Maria TOTALLY keep that streak alive! This video started with an email, "Me and my bride to be are going to elope to NYC from Sweden to get married." I read that first sentence and all I could think to respond was YES in ALL CAPS to express how SUPER EXCITED I WOULD BE TO DO THAT!! Of course, I think I held back a bit, and responded more tactfully than that. 

This video was an interesting project as well, since I wouldn't be able to fly with Jonatan and Maria on their journey from Sweden to NYC.  So instead, I directed them from afar, and asked them to shoot those scenes and vignettes that I couldn't be there to shoot myself.  Kudos to them both for doing such an amazing job! The footage at the start of the video was done by them both! 

Lastly, and this is more personal I suppose, but I want to thank both Jon and Maria for inviting me along on what was a very private, supremely romantic, adventure.  They couldn't have been nicer and more willing to collaborate with me, even when it meant hours walking around in the icy winter NYC air!

Enjoy!

The song is "Little Bit" by Lykke Li (a Swedish artist) and you should go buy her record here: http://amzn.com/B001MJKUTY

    Found your website by accident for that 2nd time today so I considered I would consider a closer appear. I have just began producing my own blog site and modeling it right after what you might have carried out. I hope mine will likely be as productive as yours.

    In general, pizza ovens are gas or electric styles or wood models. Coal even been used as a heat source. Wood fired oven pizza is excellent, some, but delicious pizzas can be prepared almost any style pizza oven. Try this incredible new discovery: Cone Pizza!
