Benefits of an Unplugged Wedding

Same Day Edit Slideshows

We always try to go above and beyond for our clients. We pride ourselves in the personal relationships we develop with our couples, and that truly is our favorite part of our job! We love each and every one of our couples, so whenever there is something extra we can do for them, we don’t hesitate.

One small thing we love to do for our brides and grooms is to put together a same day edit slideshow during the wedding day. “Same Day Edit” is a common term among wedding photographers, but may not be familiar to the average bride and groom. A same day edit is simply a slideshow that is put together and shown at the wedding reception, using photos that were taken earlier that very same day! I simply run it on my laptop, set in an inconspicuous place (usually by the bar so guests have something to do while waiting in line for a drink).
Bride + Groom Watching a Same Day Edit

We do a same day edit for every one of our wedding clients. The slideshows usually contain around 50 photos from the day, up to the first dance. Some of these may end up as some of our own personal favorites from the day, but most of the time we are choosing photos that we know the bride, groom, and their families would like to see most. It’s always so much fun for us to see the surprise on the couple’s and guests’ faces when we put the slideshow and they realize that these photos were taken earlier that same day!

We’ve been shooting wedding for six years now, and we’ve never had a wedding where we didn’t do a same day edit slideshow. In fact, I did one at my very first wedding. It’s just one of the little ways we like to say thank you!

To see what a same day edit looks like, click play on the video below. This is the actual same day edit that we showed at our last wedding, this past Saturday. We absolutely loved this bride and groom, and we knew that their wedding day was going to be extra special! We knew we did our jobs right when the bride watched the slideshow with tears in her eyes!
