Face A Face

This past July Brian and I found ourselves in Avignon, France.  We were invited to film our friends’ wedding in Annecy and traveled a bit after to Cannes, Avignon, & Geneva.  In Avignon every July, we discovered that there is a massive theatre festival, Festival d’Avignon.  There were hundreds of people wondering around Avignon performing and promoting their groups for the evening shows.  We spotted a French dance group, Face A Face, from our hotel window and so I filmed some of their dance moves.

I’m starting to make more of an effort to archive any footage I shoot, meaning I do something with even the small random stuff I capture.  This video is a good example of “archiving”.  It took me a hour to put it together and now I have a fun video from our week in France.  Please note that this does not replace the process of really archiving your footage by backing it up.  The ironic part of this video is while we were exploring Avignon & filming wild French theatre enthusiasts, our plane was leaving Switzerland back for the U.S.  We missed our flight, thinking it departed on a different day!  Five days later and a good chunk of money we finally got home with a story to tell.

Please share any random travel videos and stories you have!

The Boat

Brian & I had the opportunity to go to Annecy, France for our friends’ wedding.  I had written about it before where Brian took the photographs and I shot & edited their wedding movie.  We spent a few days with them and so I made a Tom & Laura series with short fun videos of various things we did.  Check out these other videos here.

More on Tom & Laura’s Wedding

I posted the trailer and now we have the completed wedding movie, below, of our very good friends Tom & Laura.  They decided to get married in a gorgeous mountain town on a lake in France..  Annecy.  We were two of the lucky ~ 30 people who attended & witnessed the adventures.  A huge congratulations to Tom & Laura!  We are soooooo happy you found each other.

Brian took beautiful photos while I shot video.  I love it when we can team up like that.  There will be several more videos to the Tom & Laura France series, such as the rehearsal dinner, wine tasting, ladies lunch, & more.  Please stay tuned!


Last year we found out our very good friends, Tom & Laura got engaged.  They made the brave decision to hire us to film and photograph their wedding festivities abroad… in Annecy, France.  Brian photographed and I shot video.  It was also a great opportunity to practice my French.  I studied in Paris eight years ago and explored some of France but did not make it to Annecy, never even heard of it.  Laura & Tom picked a perfect spot!  If you are looking for a town to visit in France, I definitely recommend Annecy.  It’s a small town pressed up against a large lake touching mountains.  It’s just an hour bus ride from Geneva, Switzerland.
