Complete Slideshow Example for a Large Wedding
So let's switch back and see the final slideshow.
Yeah. So this is like a cooking show where they take out all the ingredients and they show you how to make it and then they're like, "Here's the finished cake," and you're like, "Whoa, how did that get done so fast?" That's what this is.

Thanks, guys. (laughing) (applauding) I almost feel like you guys have been a part of this whole process.
We saw the meeting with them and the GoPro footage. It really sure has come full circle.
So we sent them the slideshow and that's what we got back from them. Wow. We are completely speechless over here. That was so amazing and just perfect. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Just brought back all the feels. We'll be watching on repeat the rest of the night and can't wait to see the gallery when it's ready. Again, even, you know, as we follow a formula in our shooting and it's almost like there's a formula in the answers that we get back.
It's again, consistent with what we're trying to achieve which further validates the formula that we follow for ourselves.
Did you find that looking at the slideshow that now that you know our formula so well, that it's just like that checklist, right? Like the images that show mood and that show the uniqueness of the wedding, connection, how the inner circle is represented, and that moments of connection between the inner circle are there, and the transitions, the storytelling details, the obvious moments. Okay, you're all nodding. That's good. (laughs) I feel like after having actually written down our formula and being aware of the fact that we do this in such a deliberate way, now that I look at our slideshows, I'm very aware of just like how much it really comes together.
Yeah. Then, yesterday morning.
This just in.
Yeah. As we were starting our Creative Live class, Sarah actually sent us this additional note after going through her entire full gallery. She says, "I've spent the last few days "trying to come up with something to say "after viewing our gallery and well, after my millionth view "and endless hours pouring over the photos "laughing and crying with friends and family, "I am officially speechless. "To say I am obsessed is an understatement. "The photos are amazing and I'm just so elated with emotions "for the way you two were able to capture "so much of the day and our story. "I think I have somewhere around 300+ favorites so far, "but every time I view, the list keeps growing and growing. "I found so much meaning behind these images. "They brought back many forgotten, but cherished moments "from the entire trip and the memories they instill "will certainly last a lifetime. "There are simply no words to thank you enough. "We are eternally grateful."
I mean, when Daniel just read the part about meaning, I got shivers because that is what I'm trying to do as a photographer. Oh no, I will not cry. It's been good. I've been good today. But that's what we're working so hard for. It's exactly what she said. It's the memories that are gonna last a lifetime. It's reminding them of how loved they are. It's making history for them or documenting history for them. That is why I'm working my butt off for these guys and that's why I'm being crazy about my slideshow selection and asking the right questions. It's for this. When we get feedback like this, it just validates everything that we do.
