Allison & Daniel: The Mosaic

Filming Allison & Daniel's wedding day was the perfect way to end the wedding season! I really loved this wedding. Everything was beautiful, everyone was happy, and the whole evening was a lot of fun. I've been wanting to edit a highlights video to this song for awhile and Allison & Daniel's footage was just perfect for it. Enjoy!

Allison & David

Allison & David had such a fun wedding day, filled with lots of amazing moments, including a horse & carriage ride, choreographed bridesmaids dance, and more! I loved filming their gorgeous ceremony at Glen Raven Mansion, followed by their reception at The Center in Springfield, TN. Allison & David were so fun to work with and it was really a pleasure capturing their wedding day, which they spent surrounded by lots of wonderful friends & family.

Hannah & Dustin

I loved this couple & their wedding day! Hannah & Dustin were so sweet and so laid back. They seemed to have such a stress-free wedding day and you could really feel the love at their ceremony, surrounded by LOTS of friends & family. It's always a pleasure filming a happy couple, so I wanted to give Hannah & Dustin a highlights film as happy as they were that day.

Allison & Daniel: The Trailer

Sometimes I just know I'm going to be filming an amazing wedding day, and Allison & Daniel's big day was definitely one of those occasions. Great couple, great bridal party, great families, great vendors, great venues, great everything! Their wedding day was really perfection and I couldn't wait to get started editing their films. Here's their trailer, which highlights just snippets of all the amazing-ness we captured that day!

I Got You

Jenny & Brandon got married on a GORGEOUS August day at one of my fav local venues, Walker Farms. I love their outdoor, waterfront ceremonies and open, yet intimate receptions. (plus the lighting is always amazing!) Jenny & Brandon's wedding day was even more wonderful than I expected. Although the wedding day was about them, they took their guests into consideration - including shifting the ceremony location over into the shade and providing water bottles & hand fans for their guests (August in TN = sweaty wedding guests) :) The best detail of the day for me had to be their wedding favors - pears & hand-stamped favor bags in which to take them home. I really enjoyed working with this couple and it was such a pleasure creating their wedding day films.

Testimonials

We're currently in the process of editing our second project with Terry Boykin, owner/instructor of Playmaker Basketball Academy. Terry is possibly one of the most self-motivated people I know. He's incredibly passionate about his work, which in turn makes us passionate about giving him the best product possible. A few years ago, we shot an instructional DVD for PBA, which is now available for download at playmakerbasketball.org - shameless plug! :) This year Terry contacted us about filming another set of basketball instructional workouts, which will be available for download this fall. We were incredibly excited for the opportunity to work with Terry again. We've converted to HD since the last time we worked with him so automatically we know this set of workouts is going to be amazing! We edited together these testimonials (below) from a couple of Terry's players with some of the footage we just shot for the new workouts. Enjoy!

Let's Dance

One of my all-time top 5 fav things at a wedding is a live band, so when I found out Hannah & Dustin were having Black Widow perform at their reception, I knew this was going to be an awesome wedding day! This super sweet couple had a beautiful ceremony in downtown Springfield, TN, followed by a rockin reception at a nearby farm. Check out their trailer film, which mixes shots from their ceremony with footage of them dancin the night away!

So Good

Olivia and Jeff had a big wedding - lots of family, lots of friends, lots of guests, lots of fun! Yet somehow, even though they were hosting quite the shindig, they managed to have a truly intimate ceremony and reception. The lighting at the ceremony focused your attention of what was important - the bride & groom - and their dj provided fabulous lighting at the reception so the dance floor was always on display. I had a great time at this wedding and I really enjoyed editing this wedding day highlights film. Enjoy!

I'm Amazed

It's true! I really am amazed at just how beautiful Julie & Clark's ceremony was! You can't beat a gorgeous outdoor ceremony, and the happy couple certainly had one! I truly loved editing their wedding day footage, and highlights from the ceremony, coupled with footage from their super fun reception, made for the perfect mosaic film below.

North Central Institute

We're taking a break from weddings today to post our most resent commercial, which we shot and edited for North Central Institute. I had heard of NCI before, but until they contacted us for video services, I had no idea they were located right here in Clarksville. I love when businesses keep it local, so I was thrilled when they booked us for this commercial, instead of hiring out of town videographers. Check it out:

Forever Young

The Young's spent their wedding day smiling and laughing, and I couldn't have asked for anything more! I love a happy couple and Julie & Clark were such a pleasure to film. Here's a little preview of what's to come in their wedding day films - I can't wait to edit all of their footage, especially their gorgeous waterfront ceremony.

Jac & Houston!

I loved this wedding! Jac & Houston recently hosted a classic, country chic wedding, and I enjoyed every minute of it! They are the sweetest, nicest couple and I was so excited to get together with their photographer, Joan of Art Photography, to create a multimedia film for their wedding day. We edited our video footage with fabulous photos from Joan to highlight all of the wonderful moments that made Jac & Houston's wedding day so special!

2011 Miss River Queen

This was the 3rd year in a row we've been invited to film the Miss River Queen & Teen Pageant, which takes place every year right here in Clarksville, TN. We love being a part of the local community and I'm so honored when we are asked to film local events, including the Miss River Queen & Teen Pageant. This year was even more exciting for us when (SPOILER ALERT!) we happened to know the winner of the Miss River Teen title. Sarah Gross has modeled for us many-a-times as a Bride's Boutique model and we were super excited for her! Below is our highlights film from the pageant, and if you're interested, copies of the pageant DVD are available for purchase for $20. Contact us at info@turningpointproductions.com for more info. Enjoy!

Good Day (Gown Shoot)

So, if you haven't had a chance to check out the new Featured Gown Shoot on ClarksvilleBrides.com, you must go check it out now! Go ahead...I'll wait. :) Seriously, click here to check it out.

Maybe a month before the shoot, I had asked Laura, of Laura Kay Photography, if I could come along and film her photographing the models & dresses and create a little multimedia. She was down so I showed up at her house on a super Sunday for a seriously awesome backyard gown shoot. You can read more about the shoot on Laura's blog (click here to check it out). The gowns were provided by The Bride's Boutique and decor by Elements Event Planning & Design Firm. Everything turned out perfectly and I'm so happy that I came along so I could create this little multimedia film below. Enjoy!

She loves it!

I've shot WITH my photographer friend Bethany many times, but last fall was the first time I shot AT her. :) She wanted a promo film to show off her mad photog skills and I love filming & editing multimedia's, so of course, I was down! We shot a day after session for one of her previous bride & groom's - it was fall, it was farm, it was fabulous! Then this past winter, Bethany set up an urban engagement shoot with one of her soon-to-be bride & groom's. It turned out SO perfectly! It really shows off her talents, shooting 2 completely different couples, in 2 completely different settings - country and city. I love the final product, but more importantly, Bethany loves it! :)

Easy as 1, 2, 3

I LOVED this wedding. Heather & Alberto were so sweet and so fun, and they probably had my favorite reception music to date. :) They got married on a Wednesday back in December - it was my first Wednesday wedding and I was curious about the date selection, until I heard Heather's mom's toast (included in their highlights video) explaining that her parents had been married 54 years ago that day. How cool is that?? They had a beautiful ceremony followed by a crazy fun reception, including a photo booth, mariachi band, and all the 90s music one could hope for! I hope you enjoy their highlights film as much as I enjoyed being a part of their wedding day!

Best Bridesmaids Dance #2

Our 2nd winners of the "Best Bridesmaids Dance of 2010" are Erin & her bridesmaids with their Michael Jackson/Beyonce Remix! Enjoy:

Best Bridesmaids Dance #1

Moving forward with our Best of 2010 Awards, we have the Best Bridesmaids Dance...and it's a tie!! Our first winners come from Mallory & Aaron's wedding day in June 2010. Mallory and her bridesmaids choreographed their dance based off the "Jai Ho" music video from the movie Slumdog Millionaire. I thought they did an AMAZING job! So much so, that I even filled one afternoon at "work" memorizing the dance as well. :) Thanks for the inspiration ladies!

P.S. My favorite part of this clip HAS to be the reception guests in the background trying to do the dance with them. :) Check it out!

Best Toast of 2010

Next up in our Best of 2010 Awards is the Best Toast. Travis and Whitney's bridesmaids, groomsmen and family members each took a turn standing up and giving touching and truly meaningful toasts at their reception...then this bridesmaid popped up and decided to lighten the mood a little...or a lot. :) Enjoy!

Best of 2010 Awards

O.M.G. - I almost forgot to post the Best of 2010 Awards! We started the annual awards last year when we recognized the craziest, funniest, and most unique and memorable moments of 2009. Well, now it's time for the Best of 2010! We're kickin things of with the Best Father-Daughter Dance of 2010. Mallory & her dad choreographed a super special, super fun father-daughter dance and I'm so happy we were there to preserve the whole event on film for them. Enjoy!

The Bride's Boutique

We had the pleasure of filming the fashion show (and a few of the super fun games!) at the 2011 Clarksville Brides Wedding and Event Showcase, thrown every January by ClarksvilleBrides.com. The new venue this year was spectacular! The fashion show had some beautiful blue up lighting provided by Spangler Entertainment (who also happened to be the emcees for the day!). It was a great show and I wanted to share the fashion show segments with you! Up first we have The Bride's Boutique!

Dive In!

As a wedding vendor, one of the most exciting, and exhausting, days of the year has to be our local bridal show. Every January, ClarksvilleBrides.com puts together our local show here in Clarksville, TN. This video highlights the show, with features like the cake dive, fashion show (including vintage dresses), scavenger hunt, game show, etc. Beth, the owner of ClarksvilleBrides.com, approached me prior to the show with a video idea. She thought we could do a "building a bridal show" segment by setting up the camera on stage and filming throughout the day. One of the features on our cameras that I don't get to use nearly enough is the time delay, so I was super excited! We got there first thing in the morning, set up the camera on a time delay, and then ignored it for most of the day. :) The footage turned out great! At first it was pretty slow, as vendors trickled in throughout the morning and the last of the decorations were put up. Then there's this burst of energy when the brides-to-be and their guests fill the room and eventually set themselves in front of the stage for the entertainment. I think it was an amazing idea and it was the perfect intro into the highlights film.

Heather & Alberto: Fiesta Trailer!

I heart wedding trailers! They are so fun and so dramatic and they always leave the viewers wanting more. This trailer is no exception! Heather & Alberto threw quite the fiesta a couple weeks ago on a fabulous Wednesday evening in Kentucky. From the gorgeous ceiling drapery to the mariachi band, they left no detail unaccounted for. One of my favorite details of the evening had to be the Spanish tile inspiration that popped up on the cake, the programs, the place cards, etc. Check it out:

Joann & Ryan: The Mosaic

Ryan & Joann are loaded with personality and so is their wedding highlights film. They had an incredibly meaningful, and entertaining, wedding ceremony, which I had no choice but to highlight in their film. :) I really believe that it's the fun little moments that make a wedding unique and unforgettable and, lucky for this editor, Ryan & Joann's wedding day was full of them. The whole day was coordinated by the forever-fabulous Debra Harris of Visions by Debra and located at Kuttawa Harbor House.

Rick & Bethany: The Mosaic

A couple months ago, our buddy Rick got "wife'd up" (his words - not mine) to our buddy Bethany (of Bethany Ann Photography - shameless plug - ahhh!). :) We had so much fun filming that day - but I had even more fun editing their footage. I laughed, I cried, I laughed some more! I'm so happy for Rick & Bethany - they are perfect for each other! I'm so grateful that they completely opened up their wedding day to us and we were able to capture all the awesomeness that is Rick & Bethany!
