Please click the above link to see a fresh example of a short video-photography montage - which combines wedding photography (images) with video (motion) and also some actual audio clips (sound), all from the same wedding. Add some nice background music and you have a cool way to share your wedding with others. 

This trend is beginning to emerge among wedding photographers, who often refer to it as "fusion". I look forward to seeing more of this technique in the next few years. This was my first try at fusion.


BTW - Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Georgetown is where President John Kennedy attended Mass in the 1960s. In fact, he began attending there as a US Senator and Georgetown resident in the late 1950s.

                                                              The Mill at Fine Creek is a perfect location for a winter wedding.

                                      After the ceremony we went outside to get a few photos - the weather was nice - just a bit cool (low 50s). But no wind that I recall.....

After the wedding, they had planned to fly from Richmond to San Francisco - then a few days later, a train trip on Amtrak up to Yosemite National Park. And then later, a day of downhill skiing in the California mountains..
