M & M wedding from Eric Uys on Vimeo. I secretly shot a video of their wedding, just to play around with editing and the Canon 550D’s video quality/functions. View it on for slightly better quality.

    Eric - Thanks! Yes I have experience with video but none that includes hand holding without an image stabilizer, shooting with an 85 and 160mm lens angle of view is tricky. It sure is a great camera for the price!

    Pearl Hair Slides - Have you got previous experience with recording video or has it mostly been photography in the past? A great video by the way considering you were just playing around!

    The 550D seems pretty popular. It’s almost always the video camera I hear being used when I see recordings online.

The lovely couple had their entire wedding party at the Lagoon Beach Hotel overlooking Table Mountain and Cape Town. It was a wind chilled day but nothing went wrong and everyone had a blast!

    Emil - Eric, I really like your work! Apart from lovely light, intelligent use of depth of field, colour relevant to the shot, as far as I’m concerned, you’ve also captured the mood, the visceral feeling of the shot beautifully. You are an artist.
