Legacy Hill Farm Wedding
I had a ton of fun shooting and editing this video. It features Kelsey & Igor’s Legacy Hill Farm wedding that I shot last October. Of the farm wedding venues MN that I’ve worked at, Legacy Hill is particularly notable for it’s rolling hills and wonderfully endless corn and wheat field backdrop.

Though I consider photography to be my main offering, I do enjoy complementing the photo coverage with a wedding video. A wedding video pairs well with the photography, adding another layer to your wedding day visual collection. In a way, video is more work because you really are producing a short film. I’m also super picky about the details. I like each frame of the video to flow smoothly, and I want to produce videos that steer clear from the more sappy aspects you’ll see in some wedding videography. Moving forward I’m asking couples what style keywords do they want the video to represent. What adjectives would describe the mood & spirit of your wedding day? Light, Romantic & Airy? Fun & joyful? Knowing that, helps me somewhat in determining the editing and soundtrack of your wedding video.
First Look at Legacy Hill Farm
First Looks can be tricky when you’re in charge of photography and video. My wonderful assistant and second shooter, Nazara, will typically handle the video for First Look, while I’m shooting the photos. There are no do-overs when it comes to First Look, so everything is pretty strategically planned. I’ll tell the couples what will happen, what the cues are, and will map out the p.o.v. for both video and photography. When we actually do it, it’s a pretty seamless and genuinely emotional moment. Check out the video above to see Kelsey & Igor’s wonderful First Look.
Choosing the Soundtrack
Sound accounts for half of the effect when doing a video. The songs chosen really contribute to the pacing, style and mood of the images. When you work with me, I will make song suggestions, but you will ultimately choose what song or songs could go on the video. Most of the time I use a music licensing service called Music Bed for song selection.

Choosing the right wedding venue will really contribute to the mood of the final video. In Minnesota and the greater midwest, farm weddings are a great option for a rustic vibe. If you’re looking for farm wedding venues MN, Legacy Hill in particular has a real country feel to it with nice views of the countryside. When it comes to video, I view the location as an important character in the piece. The couple chose the location for a reason – because it resonated with them – and I like to showcase that.
