During my 3 month stay in New Jersey this summer, i helped MPW Media Group (New Jersey based wedding photo-video group) being a videographer and Same day editor. These are all of my 9 SDEs which i ranked to my favorite accordingly. If you want my best SDE, just scroll down and watch the last videos.
My very first official SDE in US. I was still adopting to the group’s workflow which a lot of times left me clueless on what to do next. I tried to incorporate my style in this wedding which i think didn’t really fit for the couple. I was very much worried that the couple will not like it. When i said to the couple, “I hope you guys like it”, Latoya our bride responded, “We Loved it!”.

My very first non-official (practice) SDE in US. I have to learn the difference of a Philippine wedding and US weddings. Major difference i learned is the preps, wherein mostly we only have 2 hours for the preps and not all ceremonies last for an hour. It can vary from 15 minutes to more than an hour. I made the SDE on time but didn’t show it on the screen because it’s not included in the package. The studio just want to make sure i can do same day edits for US weddings.

The longest SDE i did this season, they both have beautiful readings which is tough to skip for their SDE. Groom is quite shy which made me difficult to direct him while doing the glides.

A beautiful Italian wedding but very fast 15-minute ceremony. I was surprised that after a few readings by the pastor, followed by their vows, the pastor announced their first kiss.
This is an SWE, a same week edit highlight. Geoff & Lisa married twice, first day was an Indian Baraat, the next day is a Catholic wedding. One of the most difficult but rewarding edits I’ve done for MPW, showing 2 weddings in 1 highlight video. Music requested by client.

My last SDE for MPW before going home to Philippines. I was lucky that Marvin made an emotional message for Valerie because none of them prepared for a vow.

An italian wedding which i needed a translator just to know their message to one another. I was also able to include the ceremony part where the pastor was saying, “Do you accept Jason to be your lawful husband…. etc..” without the need of translator. I just followed my guts there. I hope to add a subtitle in the future, if you can speak Italian please send me a translation. Thanks! Music requested by client.
My favourite SDE of all, still gives me goosebumps everytime I watch this video. Not only our bride looks like Anna Kendrick but they were both easy to work with and showed how they really love each other. Too bad it rained that day, we could have had their post-nup at Central Park New York. But we stayed indoors and yet i was able to come up with a wonderful SDE video which everyone in the room had positive feedback. Music requested by client.
