There are so many ways and reasons why this video could have never happened. We have been fortunate enough to have become very close friends with Liz and Ryan over the past few years in a crazy string of coincidences and good luck. The bulk of our time together has been spent in Vegas where we met them in February 2011 at WPPI as we were being shot by many a phototog for Justin and Mary’s shootout that year. Fast forward 365 days and back in Vegas we are this time Liz and ryan are the models and Nick and I shooting them for a film for J&M, crazy small world stuff, I know! Then there was this whole crazy thing where you know, I got married in Vegas and of course Ryan jumped in as my groomsman in a clutch. It is absolutely unreal how amazing these two are and how much it means to us that we could be the ones to share their story with their couples and the rest of the world.
Shooting this film could not have been more awesome. We spent two full days with Liz and Ryan at their home in Baltimore and pretty much just hung out as went through their typical yet awesome routines. It truly makes so much sense to share Liz and Ryan’s story through their amazing life and how that can translate into something special and unique for anybody. It really didn’t hurt that we got to eat like kings for two days straight either. It was really a cool challenge to shoot in such a controlled setting like the coffee shop or their home and then go out into the crowd of the farmer’s market and shoot amongst the public. It’s always fun to see peoples reactions when you come flying by them with a glide cam!
