Patrick & Aileen’s Seattle Wedding Video

Patrick Ramos and Aileen Batinga – Seattle Wedding Video SDE
Held at The Immaculate Conception Church Seattle, Washington
Preparations: Seattle Marriott Waterfront
Reception: Bell Harbor International Conference Center

Here’s a fun fact: Seattle is the first city to play a Beatles song on the radio.

…and it rains there…a lot. But I assume that you already know that. And one can’t truly enjoy the beauty of the city without experiencing some Seattle drizzle.

Enough of the trivia and more about our trip. Our schedule allowed us only three and a half days in Washington and it wasn’t enough to eat and see everything but it was more than enough for us to produce one heck of a Seattle wedding video for Patrick and Aileen. iPhone’s weather update is truly handy in these kinds of situations being in this city and all. It was a real treat when the 30% chance of rain didn’t persevere and we were rewarded by a beautiful sunny day. Just perfect for Patrick and Aileen to get wed.

The young couple conveniently booked us to the same hotel where they’re having their make-up/dress-up done. This totally made our lives so much more comfortable especially with an SDE. Patrick’s mom made sure that we got everything we needed and Aileen’s entourage made us feel at home. I did get a DJI phantom quadcopter for this trip to try out my luck with aerial videography. I’m hoping I didn’t overuse it or anything but hey, it’s my first time! =) I knew that making an awesome Seattle wedding video is no easy task so I had my good buddy Derrick help us out. (Shout out to his beautiful wife Bonny who took care of our ten moth old rascal plus my mom while we worked. Our Portland adventure will find it’s way in this blog soon.)

Speaking of rain, we’re experiencing some heavy downpour as I write this blog entry not thanks to super typhoon Mario. Stay safe and stay dry everyone.

    […] I appreciate the beauty and the perspective that aerial videography provides. I enjoy my new (and very expensive) new toy but I don’t like it. It’s a huge liability. Versus the price that you offer for it (free), totally not worth it. It’s complicated. It requires a lot of time to practice and come wedding day you won’t get to use it because it’s raining or it’s very windy or worse, you need a permit to fly it. It’s very expensive. In addition to the actual unit, you’re required to get a GoPro, extra batteries, extra propellers, gimbal, monitor. Worse, you’ll get addicted and get another (supposedly an upgrade e.g. hexa or octocopter) unit. I did! It’s high risk. I fly my DJI Phantom for give or take thirty minutes each event and I get to use ten seconds of aerial videography footage. Over doing it, in my opinion, makes it less special. But man oh man when done right it looks so darn good (I truly feel I hit some money shots with my Seattle wedding video!) […]
