I’m still trying to figure out this whole blog thing.  It’s primarily a blog dedicated to my job as a wedding professional.  On the other hand, you really need to write often to have any type of regular audience, right?  I don’t have the most exciting news to relay every day pertaining to weddings.  That said, please stay with me as I meander down the blog highway for the first time…

I did meet with a veteran videographer today, someone I will hire on occasion to film events for me.  I won’t hold the fact that he’s a Yankees fan against him.  😉 It’s interesting meeting other wedding videographers, especially ones who have been doing it for double the time that I have.  Los Angeles is so flooded with filmmakers, it can get tough to make a name for yourself.  Lots of competition…  Anyway…

I started the day off early, as the father of the groom for a wedding I am filming tomorrow (yes, a Friday)- stopped by to pick up a projector and big screen set up for a montage to be shown at the rehearsal dinner tonight.  I finished up a promotional video for another client, then opened a wedding that needed to be finished.  Meeting at noon, followed by errands to the post office and store, and preparing for tomorrow, and I haven’t gotten much done on Regina and Robert’s wedding today.  I still need to go pick up a steadicam from a local rental shop for tomorrow’s wedding (at Westlake Village Inn).  The gym is a must after that… stress relief!

That’s about all for now, but before I go… here’s a fun story… or not.  Last night I filmed a 10 minute set for a comedian at the Hollywood Improv.  I needed a break, so I did it for $60.  No big deal right?  Walk to my car afterwards to find a nice little parking ticket for $63.  I did meet some cool people though, including the comedian who I shot for, Hasan Minhaj, whose a funny dude.

As for a proposal idea of the day, I think I’m gonna have to make that a weekly deal…
