Sharon + Scott — I get lost in your sight.

Loca­tion is a huge part of every wed­ding film — or any film for that mat­ter. It plays a large role in set­ting the over­all tone of the sto­ry and has the pow­er to reflect the character’s per­son­al­i­ties, emo­tions, and inten­tions. Such is the case for Sharon and Scott’s film, in which the Ancast­er Mill’s atmos­pher­ic nat­ur­al set­tings and warm, mod­ern archi­tec­ture pro­vide the per­fect back­drop for their small and inti­mate cel­e­bra­tion.

We found our­selves grav­i­tat­ing towards the pow­er­ful water­fall that rips through the grounds, flow­ing through every major space at the Mill, and thus every scene.

The Ancast­er Mill had actu­al­ly played the set­ting for two of our ear­li­est wed­ding films. Hav­ing grown a lot as cin­e­matog­ra­phers, film­mak­ers, and sto­ry­tellers since those first few years, it was inter­est­ing to see which ele­ments stuck out to us now and how we want­ed to cap­ture them to enhance Sharon and Scott’s film. Beyond the beau­ti­ful green­ery, we found our­selves grav­i­tat­ing towards the pow­er­ful water­fall that rips through the grounds, flow­ing through every major space at the Mill, and thus every scene. Like­wise, when estab­lish­ing the water­fall, we want­ed our shots to flow and move slow­ly through each set­ting that the water pass­es through, build­ing antic­i­pa­tion as the music climbs and the edit sto­ry kicks off.

Nar­ra­tive­ly speak­ing, this film is sim­ply about Sharon, Scott, and their jour­ney togeth­er. From both of them recount­ing how quick­ly and eas­i­ly they earned each other’s love and trust, the nar­ra­tive is a sim­ple one that so clear­ly paints a pic­ture of the love they share and how effort­less­ly they share it. And as sim­ple as that motif is, it is a pow­er­ful one that the sto­ry focus­es on and builds up from as Sharon and Scott come togeth­er — for their first look, to their first kiss, then to their first dance.

As their offi­ciant Grant announces how­ev­er, although their jour­ney has been incred­i­ble, they are still only at the start of it, and as the film clos­es, we see them start this new jour­ney togeth­er as hus­band and wife.
