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!
