This is for the grand finale for the big finished here you can look up there, joe. We just watched him set up this shot. You can see the merry couple eventually up on top of the box truck and something big is going to happen but what I do want to do before that happens is take a moment. Tio thank some of the folks that have been so incredible today and helping make this happen is pricks once and says there are a lot of moving pieces so there are more moving pieces in this wedding all right, I'm gonna do these shout out susan w han solo harp shoes beautiful heart best solo heart dot com way have act three catering dot com amazing food delicious it was audio systems carlson slash audio I'm sorry dash audio dot com we also want to thank megan clark our wedding planner of clutch the fence has been in charge of everything in incredible calling is really, really incredible highly recommend her if you are in this area in the seattle area laurel creek many manner that's where we are in this incredible that you from letting us do what we've been doing here about this is the first live broadcast wedding I can only imagine what laurel creek mannar dot com thank you and of course rich and geno using incredible phenomenal this has been an incredible day you guys have just been ableto watch them photograph an entire day we started this broadcast at twelve thirty it is now eight thirty that's eight hours of broadcasting a live one you've seen it all from beginning to end and we're not done yet. Tomorrow we're going to go over all the footage and joe is going to teach you everything and about it everything that he's been thinking all the steps. What you need to be thinking about as you shoot your own weddings in this style and on tuesday we're going to go over post processing when you know how to actually deliver the images to your client in the job you saying style this is a man okay, I think I think three minutes we've got three minutes fantastic. Ok, ok let's just chat let's chat I know what's been your favorite things so far today I mean oh my gosh, it still feels very surreal, but my favorite thing was seeing the first look yes, my goodness, we all start to cry because death is a really, really said to the guy and he is the cryer in this couple absolutely. That was beautiful. What about us? I have to say that the ceremony itself the vows the way that it was delivered it was not just sweet and funny and romantic, but it was also just them. Yes, you know, and that's what you really want, I think personally in a wedding ceremony is something that really does just embody the couple and their personality and their relationship and to me they mailed it it was funny it was silly, but it was also really hard felt and and I know that if you were watching, you could feel that so let's talk about jo and rich working together because that was incredible. There was a moment there on the dance floor when I saw joe and he had his finger on the trigger and he was just standing, it was like I was watching his eyes and it's going this is ready to go he'd see something and then he gets a shot at making it wasn't rapid firing he would just see something get the shot but the scanning and the focus and the concentration as crack swanson and I were talking about earlier it's just phenomenal to see an act it is and it's amazing to see how they worked together on and never overlapped you never saw them in the same angle you never saw them looking from the same direction it was just they had this simple like communication where you would see them just like tap each other, catch eyes and then move that's what I really want to ask them about is how they have this I mean they've been working together for six years absolutely but how are they able to communicate because they didn't have any mikes and have any just all this sort of mental communication with the other thing that I noticed that was really impressive was how rich would go out and instigate the moments that he wanted to see out on the dance floor whereas joe would then be in the background ready to catch those moments as they occurred it was this it was this amazing teamwork that I think his idea when you have that that second shooter who really understands what you want, how you work and how to give you what you need to get the shots you want absolutely. And I can't wait to have all the questions that we've been gathering today from everybody out there has been watching way have those saved. Thank you, teo. Our chat moderators has been at home moderating those chat rooms. Thank you to everybody. Who's watch today. I've actually missed out being in the chat rooms today like a little bit because I know that there's been that reaction out there. I've heard a couple people who have been in the chat room earlier today. They're like, oh my gosh, when I turned around, there was just this explosion and then during the ceremony and it was s so I really hope that you guys had a great time in there see what's going on okay, way are lighting the set here. There. This is going to be a classic joe using portrait. I cannot wait to see what happens with this photograph because, like I said, we're going to go out with some kind of bang, some kind. I don't know what kind I can only imagine, but this is going to be a quintessential shot was so he'll also no, wait, no.
