John was recently interviewed by an organization that provides resources to photographers called LensFlare35. LensFlare35 happened to see one of our recent films that we used the Canon 5D Mark II. It was the Heirloom Session that was previously highlighted on our blog. John enjoyed speaking with the show's host Dave Warner. You can check out the interview here...LensFlare35... and some other cool interviews on the site.

This was a wedding we filmed in Indianapolis, IN at Saint Mary's Catholic Church. This is one of the city's most beautiful old churches. As luck would have it, we actually filmed a wedding the day before in this same church and the Groom from the first wedding knew the couple for the wedding the next day. Jennifer and Jaime were so easy to work with and they really meshed with our laid back kind of style. The reception was held at the Conrad, downtown Indianapolis. We worked with Rockstar photographer Chad Franz, who we had a blast working with.

NOTE: Press PLAY then PAUSE and allow the video to load before playing.
This is a new offering by Northernlight Filmworks. It's called the Heirloom Collection. The concept is that we capture moments during the family photo session. These moments give legs to the personality of the family and how they interact with each other, including the photographer. Our style is to film very similar to a lifestyle shoot. We believe that this style is best at capturing the authentic personalities. In addition to the photo session, we also offer the parents the ability to talk about each child and to discuss funny stories or milestones. This provides the parents the opportunity to talk about their own relationship and how it has evolved as a family. We also like to offer the opportunity for the children to sit with each other or by themselves and just talk. Our job is to help them relax and to engage and interact with each other. Can you imagine, 20 years from now, watching a mini documentary about your young family? Priceless.
We look at what we do as poetry in motion. Life is short and we want to be able to help families document their lives and those important milestones or moments in time.
The Heirloom Collection doesn't stop with young families. It could be young couples without children or even Grandparents. Each Heirloom project is unique and hand made to each client. Life is a documentary.
We shot this session with Carpenter Photography and Design, who did an amazing job with the images. The relationship the photographer has with their client is critical in getting the images you see in this film. The Moore family were so much fun. It was fun watching how the children engaged with each other and their parents. They sure do love each other.
Thank you to the Moore Family for letting us in on just a little snapshot of your life and your family. The children are so cute and they are going to break some hearts someday.

We really enjoyed Vicky and Jason and their wedding and reception was beautiful. We met with them a couple times before the wedding and filmed their engagement shoot, which you can see here: http://northernlightfilmworks.blogspot.com/2008/08/jason-vicki-save-date.html
We used a little Super 8 film to sprinkle in their wedding highlight. The wedding was held at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Indianapolis, which is a beautiful church. We worked again with our good friends Kevin and Alicia Monahan with Kevin Monahan Photography. We had perfect weather on the wedding day. The wedding planner was April Foster of April Foster Events and she did an amazing job and was very helpful. Having a planner takes so much of the stress away from planning to even the wedding day itself. The reception was at the Crowne Plaza, which just happens to be one of our favorite places to work. The staff there are first class. Souled Out Band rocked through the night, they are such an entertaining band.
While editing this film, I kept thinking about how much these two are in love. You can see it in their eyes and just how much fun they have with each other. When we spend a period of time getting to know our couples, the films always mean more to us and Jason and Vicky were certainly no different. Jason and Vicky are two of the nicest people you could meet. We wish them all the best. I'm sure we will remain in contact with them.

This is a short trailer of a wedding we recently shot at Woodstock Country Club in Indianapolis, IN. The wedding was beautiful and was something you might find in Town and Country Magazine. Everything from the Bride her dress, flowers, cake and setting set the stage for a memorable wedding. We enjoyed working with Photographer Jennifer Driscoll. The flowers by Posh Petals were amazing. The intro to this film features members from the Buffoons, which Hunter was a member. Cool stuff. More of them in the final edit.
Congratulations to Maggie and Hunter who are currently on their Honeymoon in Aruba.
