    I don't think you are cut from a different cloth than people today, it's just that there are preferences. Some really value wedding videos and many do not. I produce them for a living, and I'd rather take an ice pick to my eye than watch my own or my parents/relatives.

    I've had couples and friends repost theirs over and over again. Just depends on the person, and I think it's always been that way.

    I was talking to my dentist about that, how we have to shoot whimsical shots of couples kissing in forests and she just thought it was the wackiest thing.

    Different strokes, and all of that.

    Well then again, there are some people who don't like horror movies. And some people who LOVE them. There are people making a fortune off shooting wedding videos, so clearly there's a market for them. To each his own.

    Definitely, I have a ton of respect for those who create quality wedding photography and videos, it's really freaking difficult to do well. I was the photographer, as a wedding gift, to a relative (they divorced a month after the wedding ;-) I am a pretty good stills/portrait/travel/fine art photographer and shooting good looking stills at a wedding is crazy difficult. Luckily I have never had to produce a wedding video but it seems as if everything (logistics, stress, high emotions, restrictive venues, consistent lighting and sound challenges, needing to be in three places at once all of the time for an entire day) conspires against creating quality video, yet some people can do it. Hats off to them, that's impressive.
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.

I have pulled stills from interviews that looked pretty good but typically the camera is stationary and the subject was mostly stationary too.
    Goes without saying.
