BTS Jena + Ryan Wedding – by Waylon

You can check out more of Waylon's projects on his Vimeo, drop him a line and give him some props.

I formerly met Waylon through the Vimeo community from a friend of a friend. Waylon was already shooting video on a consumer camcorder so he had just a bit of editing practice. After introducing him to some of the professional videos online from seasoned DSLR cinematographers I had been following, he decided to take the plunge into DSLR videography. Jumping into the Canon 7D for it's ability to provide quality photos and videos, it wasn't very long before he started producing some awesome videos like the one above.

The silly bride dancing around is my cousin, and she invited to bring some gear along to help capture some of those special moments, but was just hanging back as the backup photographer / videographer. Waylon joined me in this event to practice some of his composition, slider technique, and Steadicam / Glidecam work. I have to say, the guy is good and getting better. These are just short clips of some Behind The Scenes footage Waylon put together for me. You can see me running around with my Radio Poppers and Wifey is holding the flashes.
