Inside the Edit

Inside the Edit: Julia + Hozana

Hey guys! Steve here and today I want to take you inside the edit and show you how I approach editing wedding film teasers.

One of the types of films my company produces, in addition to a "Wedding Film" or "Highlight Reel", which can be anywhere from three to five minutes long, is what we call a “teaser” or an “Instagram teaser.” 

These are minute-long wedding films that we post to our Instagram account along with other social media channels, and that we send to our couples to post on their Instagram accounts, and we usually have these finished within 72 hours of the wedding day.

The teaser in question is for an awesome couple we shot a couple of months back, and it was actually just published in Junebug Weddings’ blog. The bride is a wedding photographer, so from the outset, I knew I wanted to do something a little out of the ordinary.

I hope this tutorial is helpful in showing you guys how I approach editing teaser films, and gave you some insight into how you can bring out the personality of your couple and the essence of the day. Enjoy!
