Have you ever seen something very beautiful that it left you literally with mouth wide open, stunned, dazed, astounded? I think I actually have again, after a long time. I have no words, other than this is really, really beautiful! Just plain beautiful. It was like watching a trailer of an artsy film with a perfect cinematography. Out of all the ones (wedding videos) I’ve seen, this tops everything, including the other one I’ve seen made by Bob Nicolas as well (Sorry Paolo and Sam). Although I didn’t cry like I did when I saw Paolo and Sam’s video, this one just stole my breath away, maybe because I know how Jericho and Kim loved the beach and it was perfectly documented in this video. Plus, I love the beach too so I’m biased, but I didn’t feel this way in all the other beach weddings I’ve seen, mind you.
It probably depends on who’s eyeing the shots or whose eyes we’re seeing through this time. I have to admit, I loved Jason Magbanua first, but Bob Nicolas is different! I’ve never “fangirled” like this ever since I have first seen a JM video! While I was watching the whole thing, I was like “how did he shoot this?” “what camera did he use for this?” “How is that even possible?” or “I wanna do this too!”.
Anyway, so much yakity yak for someone who’s out of words in the first place! Check out the slow motion scenes especially the ones when Echo and Kim were running, spreading colored powder or smoke in the air and the one when Jericho’s arms were outstretched, anticipating a huge wave. ART PORN! Plus the song choice, I have to say is a big factor in making a wedding video. I love the fact that song is so fitting for the scenes or vice versa and I love that they must have chosen this concept and song because these are the occasions in life that you’d never want to end, so you’d either freeze the moments or put them in sloooooooowwww moooootion. 🙂 Kudos to Echo and Kim!
Also, here’s the other video I was talking about:
This one still gives me the chills (in a good way). The intro’s the best and very hair-raising as well. I love the whole fisheyed upside down scene at the beginning, plus the “…in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit, for what God has joined together, let no man separate, ” line just gets me every time. plus I love HOPPIPOLLA and Gary V’s speech so you get my point….
