Christine and Dakota's Country Wedding in Parachute, Colorado from Chad Tipps on Vimeo.
I had the great pleasure of shooting our friends wedding out in Parachute, Colorado. We drove from Colorado Springs and had some fun stopping in Denver and Vail on our way. My wife Elissa came as my PA, agent, and my date. Christine and Dakota and their families were a pleasure to work with, and I'm glad they liked my work!
Here is a shorter look at the day. I provided a 90 minute cinematic version complete with a music score based on the music from the ceremony. I authored a beautiful DVD menu and duplicated DVDs in house for the extended family.
I created this original music in a morning using my guitar and cello. I was having trouble with Pro Tools so I made it in Garage Band. The quirky imperfections in the music make it sound more like a 'live country band' to my ear.
I was very glad to have the Canon C100 that day because of the heat! The fan allowed that camera to be my workhorse in near 100 degree weather. Since shooting this wedding I have been busy with many other opportunities to shoot music videos, interviews, and learn the ins and outs of shooting with the Canon gamma log. Being outdoors was a great opportunity to see the range of the C100. I didn't have a custom profile on my T2i yet, so as you can see the wedding dress is overexposed in some shots.
