Knoxville Portraits LogoI’m extremely excited to make an announcement that should surprise no one who has been keeping up with the blog in the past two weeks.

John Mark McMillan posted a still from a music video outtake on his Facebook fan page.

If you consider yourself in the popular Christian community, you’ve heard “How He Loves” by David Crowder Band (DCB).

I’ve blogged about them before for their creativity in using a LITE-BRITE and stop-motion in their newest music video for “SMS (Shine),” also mentioning previous work and its creative merits.

So it’s only natural that they would record this song, with deep-rooted metaphors and highly-biblical meanings. It’s a hit in Christian radio circles, peaking at #8 in Christian Songs according to (the song page was giving error messages at the time of posting).

If you’re outside of the mainstream Christian music scene, or don’t consider yourself a Jesus-follower at all, you’ve probably not heard the song that causes some controversy over it’s use of metaphors and lyrics. Read more

'The Social Network': HISHE

'The Social Network': HISHE

Confused by the acronym? Yeah…it’s not exactly an obvious one.

HISHE is the short form for “How It Should Have Ended,” a website funded by Starz Media that parodies trailers for movies and offers an alternate ending. Read more

The Story

Abby Carlton and Rhett Parker have an interesting romance. They met on Facebook while Rhett was deployed in Iraq and were engaged within a couple months of meeting face-to-face. Their story is beautiful, as was their wedding day.

The Story Behind the Story

Abby asked me early on to produce her wedding video.

Unfortunately, I did not get to spend a lot of time with Abby or Rhett prior to the rehearsal because Rhett was stationed in Texas and Abby was with him. A large portion of the planning was through the bride’s mother, Lisa.

During the wedding weekend, I must have shot well over 15 hours of video between the two cameras I had rolling. That resulted in some great moments and videos, one of which I have displayed above. (If you’d like to see more videos from different parts of the wedding, email me, and I’ll be happy to show you more of my wedding portfolio.)

It was a fun experience and I think the bride and groom (along with their families) would agree that my presence added a lot to the wedding party as well. While there, I got a lot of interesting stories out of the couple (and their bridesmaids and groomsmen) that really enhanced everyone’s memories of the wonderful weekend.
