This past Sunday I had the pleasure of shooting Keila and Dan’s wedding. I’ll write at length about them when I post their film, but for now I just wanted to share one incredibly awesome moment from their day.
The back story:
From the time they were engaged Dan had wanted to see if he and Keila could be featured in the Vows section of the New York Times. He figured they didn’t have much of a chance. Still, what would it hurt to apply? So he did. A couple weeks ago the Times told him they would be running their wedding announcement in the Sunday, June 5th, edition of the paper.
So yesterday morning, while Keila was having her makeup done, her father was sitting nearby reading the New York Times, as fathers often do on Sunday mornings. Flipping through the paper he eventually arrived at the Style section, where the first wedding announcement in the paper was for his daughter. Quiet and unassuming, you never would have known he was reading about his daughter’s wedding in our national paper of record, but there it was, and there they were, father and daughter, sharing a moment few get to experience.
Dan and Keila commissioned a Love Story. As part of that project we got together a couple months ago for an interview that will be woven into the story of their wedding. Along with their wedding announcement the Times asked if they could provide a video where they explained how they met. It just so happens they could…
