Videography was not in the budget for our wedding, and frankly, I didn't think we needed it. However, our good friend photographer Tony Stamolis, shot a bunch of short videos with his phone on our wedding day and they are so wonderful. I am so, so, so thrilled that we have these mini-videos -- they make me smile and capture the day in real time in a way that no photograph ever could. The footage of our first dance will be something I treasure forever. So, thank you Tony!
Tony shot the video with his iPhone using an app called 8mm Vintage Camera, which gives the video a faux vintage quality. 8mm describes the effect as "old-fashioned 8mm movies." My iPhone is on its last legs due to one too many incidents in which it was dropped, but as soon as I get a new one, I'll be downloading the 8mm app, and I'll definitely be shooting videos at special events from now on. Have you tried the 8mm Vintage Camera app? If so, what do you think of it?
