We wanted to try something new at Jessica & Jason’s wedding.  We brought a 5th camera with us, specifically for shooting a new style of slideshow–or should I say, an old style motion picture?  This is not what we presented to Jessica and Jason for their wedding images, so everyone gets a surprise today!

Please be patient and let this load at least 1/4 of the way before you push play!

Now, experience McLellan Vintage Cinema!

    Hollywood Who? Never heard of ’em. I’m fresh out of adjectives.
    Very interested to see what’s on the other side of the Universe, now that you have been to the edge. I must say a silent prayer for other photographers. How do they cope with being “lapped” on a daily basis? Suggestion is to TM…McLellan Vintage Cinema. Not only are photographers in trouble, I’m concerned about the neighborhood movie theaters. Got popcorn?

  5. Jill on July 3, 2008 at 9:43 am

    Once again The McLellan’s never cease to amaze me. Love IT!

  6. Amy on July 3, 2008 at 9:50 am

    Mel!!! That is SO cool – there seems to be no end to your talent and creativity!!

  7. Dave on July 3, 2008 at 10:08 am

    That was so great! I’m sure I can speak for other photographers when I say that I had a “Crap! Why didn’t I think of that!” moment.

    Great job!

  13. Phil & Mindy Thornton on July 3, 2008 at 11:47 am

    H O L Y C O W ! I have often thought about making a slideshow of all the day’s images while scrolling through them in lightroom but NEVER would have expected anyone to execute something like this. So unique, great work.

  14. Sarah Seeley on July 3, 2008 at 12:02 pm

    Love it!

  15. ricki ford on July 3, 2008 at 12:03 pm

  16. Tiffany Izatt on July 3, 2008 at 12:03 pm

    Wow, that was really something awesome. I usually don’t sit through sideshows, but the music was perfect, and the images were more like a movie. Beaituful

  17. Mel Watson on July 3, 2008 at 12:38 pm

  37. Thomas Geist on July 4, 2008 at 8:05 am

    Really cool! I like that you combined the still motion WITH the antique tonality. That makes it a great piece!

    Congratulations to everyone on the most perfect experience.

  56. Lauren on July 31, 2008 at 10:11 am

    I’ve never seen your studio’s work before, but just love Jessica Harp as a singer and another local Kansas City native. But this was absolutely beautiful and a fantastic way to show the wedding. It makes you feel almost like you were there too, but without the big, fat photo album. GREAT JOB!!! And they are geniuses for having you guys do their wedding.

  57. Steven Mull on August 24, 2008 at 7:42 am

    Now that was just too dog gone cute! Have a happy life. Grow together. Have cute kids and video their weddings. ;-)

  58. Ayrica Bishop on September 2, 2008 at 9:35 pm

    That was incredible!!! Well worth the wait on the load. I’m envious, crap… I’m a bad christian ;-D

  59. SamTheMan on September 3, 2008 at 8:00 am

    Outstanding! Wow, very nice. You’ve started a whole new trend my friend, beautiful!

  60. Eileen Broderick on September 4, 2008 at 1:58 pm

    Wow. Speechless.

  61. Sean on August 21, 2009 at 2:32 pm

    Thank you for all the kind words–we really appreciate it
