as is the case with all of our couples, we always want to know 'their story'. what is it about them that stands apart? every couple has it...although it's up to us to dig deep to bring out what's interesting and unique about them as people, so we can best capture and tell it through our films.
with brian + jeanelle, the choice was obvious. brian is blind. he's not always been that way, though. stricken with glaucoma at the age of 21, he's lost all of his vision in one eye, and about 85% in the other. most people would be unable to cope with that malady, but not only has brian been able to do so, he's thrived. now a motivational speaker, brian is able to inspire thousands with his message, and along with jeanelle by his side, together they've formed an amazing relationship.
brian also talks about how even though he lost his sight, he never lost his vision. he's been able to grow as a person, and to value what matters in a person.
so, in that sense, love really isn't blind. when you see someone for who they really are, it's not a foolish choice. it's a decision based on what is on someone's inside.
this is their story.

we broke out the first aerial shots for a same day edit. we shot some back in june for a wedding in south carolina, but haven't got that one edited yet. (STAY TUNED) the phantom is a nice element to add and i believe will make a major impact on wedding films in the future.
