Shooting Star : Making a Same Day Wedding Slideshow

In the past I've spoken about producing a same-day slideshow at a wedding. The slideshow is a sneak peek of the wedding day through the ceremony recessional. While guests are eating dinner during the reception, I quickly grab 30-40 of my favorite images of the wedding day and put together a slideshow to be displayed on my laptop (the how, location, and FAQs are discussed in the video). I love putting together a slideshow because it acts as a conversation piece on the wedding day and encourages guests to have a discussion about the bride and groom (as seen through my lens).

The results of these conversations are priceless. When guests see the photos displayed the same day, most often they respond by complimenting the newly married couple on how beautiful their day was and/or how lovely they look together. With technology being as quick as it is, the first wedding photos the bride sees are those she's been tagged in Facebook. And let's be real…dancing photos sometimes aren't the best reflection of a beaming bride. I, instead, offer the opportunity for her to see photos the night of her wedding and know everything came together the way it was supposed to.

Even if the bride doesn't see the slideshow directly, her guests have complimented her, assured her of the day's beauty, and (as an awesome byproduct) reassured her decision to hire me to document her day. In this installment of Shooting Star, I demonstrated how I made a same day slideshow at a wedding…

Oh, don't mind me…just adding a photo to this post…that flute-playing screen capture needs to be balanced out with some flower girl cuteness.

I wouldn’t say we were business nerds but my husband just sent me a Slack message asking me to call him.
