Logan + Ethan {Wedding} - Vicksburg, MS

Logan + Ethan {Wedding} - Vicksburg, MS

One of our favorite wedding films was from October in Vicksburg, MS. Vicksburg is a quaint town with the mighty Mississippi flowing near by, and the Yazoo river feeding its strength. The wedding venue was in the historic downtown district at the BB Club. The wedding party rode in a tram car for photos up and down the steep streets near the river. The ceremony was held in a grand ballroom - it was the perfect place to say "I do" for Logan and Ethan. Their reception included a fun live band that even sang Happy Birthday to the bride's brother! One of the reasons why we love this film so much is because of the way Logan and Ethan's loved ones shared their story. Coming from their perspective, the story unfolds in such an authentic and touching way. All of the speeches were captured from their rehearsal dinner that we filmed the evening before the wedding - we hope to have more speeches that we are able to incorporate into our wedding films in the future!

We're back! 

It's been a busy few months! We've had so many weddings consecutively, and can't wait to share all of our new films and photos! It's been a great time, but we are glad to have a break soon.

One of our favorite weddings was Nadia and Ismael's. This was our first wedding to be a part of that was completely Spanish-speaking, as well as our first Catholic mass ceremony. We loved getting to know their family and all of their awesome cultural traditions! One of these traditions at the reception involved the couple standing on chairs, while their friends and family held them up. Her veil was held between them both, as other wedding guests tried to knock them over. We won't give away the rest, but watch their film for the full story! With all the excitement, their wedding day flew by. It was a truly original day, and we enjoyed being a part of it. We were not able to fit in their engagement session before their wedding day, so we ended up doing their session about a week after the wedding. It turned out better than we could have planned that way because we were able to get some amazing shots of Ismael and Nadia in their wedding attire as well! For any engaged couples who don't want a 'First Look' on your wedding day, this is a great alternative so you can have a full portrait session completely unrushed by all of the wedding day festivities. 

More to come soon!

Taste of West Jackson Food Competition {Ministry}

We have recently enjoyed filming and interviewing several restaurant owners for an upcoming competition hosted by our church called the Taste of West Jackson. We've been wanting to branch out into doing some videos for businesses for a while now and it's been a fun process! This particular video was made for Chi-town Salads and Sandwiches. The story behind Famo's restaurant made for an exciting editing process! We're planning on doing several more videos for the other restaurants participating in the competition. You can check out the other films we've done thus far on the Common Ground Facebook page. We can't wait to share more of our work soon!

Taylor + Chance {Wedding} - Brookhaven, MS

We were so excited to be the videographers for Taylor and Chance's big day! The preparations, first look, and ceremony were held at Johnson Grove Church of Christ in the Brookhaven, MS / Bogue Chitto, MS area. Our drone captured stunning aerial shots of the country church. Taylor & Chance had an emotional first look in the sanctuary, and then posed for their sweet portraits by their photographer Kelly Nevels. If you haven't heard of a 'first look,' this is a special time set aside for the bride and groom to see each other for the first time in their wedding attire before the ceremony. This allows more time for intimate shots of the couple for the photographer and videographer. Another benefit that some couples like about this option is that they are able to go straight from the ceremony to the reception and spend more time with their guests since all of the family portraits and formal photos are finished ahead of time. We really enjoy shooting traditional reveals as well, but first looks are definitely worth considering if you are planning a wedding!

By 5 p.m., every pew was filled. The bridal party made their way down from the balcony to line up and walk up the aisle. Taylor was escorted by her father to the front of the sanctuary where her groom was anxiously waiting. After their vows were sealed with a kiss, everyone joined the happy couple in Wesson, MS for the reception at the Old Wesson School, and a fun night of eating and dancing!

Kelcey + Austin {Wedding} - Grenada, MS

We had a great time filming and photographing this special wedding in Grenada, Mississippi! The day started off with a cloudless drive up from Jackson, with striking blue skies. As we arrived in downtown Grenada, we encountered a stately brick building marked "First & Green," the wedding venue. The day went smoothly, and Kelsey and Austin were a wonderful couple to work with.  Despite a bout of rain before the ceremony, the excitement continued to grow! The bride and groom wrote compelling letters to one another, which they read for us for the highlight film. After the ceremony was over, everyone put on their dancing shoes and enjoyed live music by Style the Band. It was a great time! Shortly thereafter, the rain clouds parted and gave way for the couple to make their departure under a beautiful sunset with a dark orange tint. We hope to be back to Grenada one day soon!

Amanda + Matthew {Wedding} - Crystal Springs, MS

     Tucked away in the woods of Crystal Springs, Mississippi down a few winding back roads lies the Jackson Place. This beautiful barn was the location of an exciting wedding celebration. We had the pleasure of being the photographers and the videographers of Amanda & Matthew's celebration. Ash and I have traveled this summer to Jackson, Tupelo, Hattiesburg, Bogue Chitto, Grenada, Cumberland, Maryland, and beyond!!! Although we traveled to some of these locations after this wedding, it was nice to have a venue so close to home! Our dogs (Moses & Eydie) appreciated it as well.  It was a windy day so flying the drone was more difficult than usual. Thankfully, the wind receded once the ceremony began. I have yet to fly the drone during a ceremony, but it's sure to happen one day. We worked with some great vendors for this wedding, including: Sherry's Catering and Ricky McCraw mobile DJ. Venue: Jackson Place.

     As I've lived here in Crystal Springs for about two and a half years, it's been exciting getting to understand the area better. We plan to do a film on Crystal Springs at some point in the future (top secret for now). Everyday is a new adventure with Pioneer Productions. We've thoroughly enjoyed building our business as the future slowly irons itself out. We have big plans for the future, and God-willing those will come to fruition.
