To get you in the wedding mood, here’s a little inspiration from her own blog, Brown Bag:
It really is a fruity kind of year. Hues of raspberry, plum, and deep strawberry seem to surface every week. This beautiful wedding, photographed by the talented Jennifer Skog, is a perfect example. Our gorgeous bride (and I mean gorgeous) took my breath away. Her eyes are just stunning. Her dress fabulous. The décor lush. It’s my kind of wedding. It’s my kind of year. See for yourself.
There are several reasons for thinking twice before asking a friend to film your wedding: Because they’re doing double-duty as cameraperson and guest, they might miss something important. Their untrained eye could make for a B-O-R-I-N-G playback. Poor image quality. Poor sound quality. The list goes on.
It’s true that nothing can take the place of the artful eye of a professional videographer, but if you’re having a friend or family member shoot your wedding instead, you’ll want to make sure they do the best job possible. Savadelis Films will share practical tips and techniques on how to frame a scene, shoot from the most unobtrusive angles, and record better sound. They’ll also demonstrate how to anticipate key moments, and how to edit a compelling story so that friends who only wanted to “take a peek” at your wedding video will beg to see more.

If you’ve ever wondered how to get the perfect shape for your eyebrows, check out this video from Monique Powers. In it, she shows you how to shape your own eyebrows without spending a ton of money at a salon.
I love that she uses something as simple as a pencil to do the measurements of where the eyebrow should begin, where the arch should be and where the brow should end. She makes it look so easy!
