After the wedding, I archived the footage. 5 years later, after I shot another wedding, where the couple I shot 5 years ago was present. After the wedding the wife called me and asked if I still had their footage from their wedding from 5 year prior. After looking through my archives, found and dusted off their precious 5year old footage. It was still as fresh as the day they wedded.
I always create portal access for my clients but in this case, I wanted to ensure that they had the footage and could share freely as they went out to see grandparents, parents and relatives in Germany. The day before their flight out, his wife came to pick up the footage. As I showed her glimpses of the footage, she cried....it was precious to see her watch, say nothing and yet say everything.
