- The Wedding Planner
2. Guess Who
This movie may not be seen or known as a “wedding movie” but it does revolve around a wedding, though a vow renewal, it is still the same. What I love about this movie after really watching it again since it first came out, is I realized I became the character of Theresa Jones. A photographer living in a city, and in a interracial relationship. Rather, this movie gave me permission to see representation of a life that is possible for me to pursue. However, what I really love most about this movie besides the message of blind love and doing the right thing. Is the end of the movie, setup like a wedding video DVD menu as if the characters in the movie are watching the wedding video. As they scene select different parts of the day the characters comment over it. It is so realistic and just displays the many reasons why a wedding video is so important. Catch Guess Who on Hulu.
3. Breakup at a Wedding
One of the best depictions of what is like to be a wedding videographer, of course from the stereotypical perspective of a wedding videographer. A super odd, kinda nerdy white male in a black suit. The twist in this movie that I like is that the story is being told from the perspective of the wedding videographer and the footage he is secretly filming in his own separate documentary. About how crazy a couple can get right before and after they get married and have a big ol' wedding. The ring light on the camera was a great find for me and it is also a lesson in making sure the couples you book are sane enough for the video to even be captured how it is expected. It’s a great Indie movie that you can watch on Hulu.
4. Wedding Bro’s
As far as movies that accurately depict the life of a wedding vendor, especially a wedding videographer, Wedding Bro’s takes the cake. Though this movie is a bit dated and again portrays the stereotypical ideas of the industry, than how it is now. What I like most about this low budget indie film is the way in which the “Wedding Bros” stumbled into the business. Not happy with their pre-destiny of working at their father’s flooring business, begin training under the best wedding videographer in Long Island. Until they branch out on their own as the “Wedding Bro’s” through their wild antics and ability to think quick on their to feet to solve wedding day problems. Check out Wedding Bro’s on Tubi.
This one had me really thinking afterwards, what it meant and how it translates to real life. Especially now as I see a lot of my fellow colleagues getting engaged and married. Monogamy is based on an engaged photographer who is bored of the wedding work and ventures into a separate creative project where he documents others in public from far away. Things get complicated for the photographer when a subject he begins to photograph from a far plays out a sexual fantasy. He becomes so intrigued by this subject, it ruins his engagement and he is left with just pictures to obsess over. The movie is a bit morbid and tugs at the inner doubts of monogamy for every couple taking their relationship to the next step with marriage. Watch Monogamy on Tubi and watch for yourself to determine what it all means.
