Continuing the Pre-Ceremony, we move on to the first look and candids which is typically a time where you’ll have total creative control.

The ceremony is, without doubt, the most important element of the day and one that requires meticulous preparation and execution from the entire team.

While being less formal than the ceremony, the reception is packed with events that you’ll need to capture and showcase in your film. We join Ray at Daisy Hill once again as he takes you step-by-step through exactly how he documents each element of the reception, including a bulletproof approach to capturing the all-important speeches, and an interview with one of the US's top event DJs to get an understanding of how wedding filmmakers can best collaborate for outstanding audio capture.

While Ray’s signature stunning visuals, cinematic edits and celebrity clientele have captured the hearts of couples all over the globe, it’s his branding and business approach that has elevated him to the very top of the industry. In this lesson Ray shares how he operates at the most lucrative end of the market, and offers his most hard-earned tips for streamlining your business for success.

One of the most applicable and practical courses I’ve ever experienced. Ray took the time to literally walk through what he does on a wedding day in many different situations (bride and groom prep, first look, ceremony and reception). Lens choices, lighting techniques, composition ideas, working with other vendors, it’s all in there. He even shares his audio set up for capturing dialogue. He also interviews a high end DJ and a couple of planners to get insight on what they look for in the wedding filmmakers they like to work with. Ever wondered how to maybe improve how you cover a ceremony, or the first look? Ray shares his strategy through interactive graphical representations of the movements of him and his team during these moments and more. If you’re serious about improving in the wedding filmmaking industry and want to start charging more money, I’m not sure how you can justify not purchasing this class.

I ended up giving it a five after reviewing the shared pricing guide and contract. Diving deeper with more specifics on editing and the depth of field choice used for specific shots throughout would have been helpful. I'm still curious about the color grading and editing techniques utilized to achieve the final footage. All in all it is a good course to quickly elevate our game.

I just finished watching the class and it was fabulous! It was so packed with good information that I kept finding myself rewinding the movies over and over again to catch little things I missed. Honestly the production value of the class was light years ahead of the numerous other courses I have purchased over the years from other larger online resources for creatives. Ray is totally different from some of the instructors of those other non-MZed courses who can tend to speak in a manner that seems to project the idea that we should be thankful they are sharing their knowledge with us. Ray communicates with you on your level. It's almost unbelievable he's so down to earth and at ease in doing so considering that he's one of the best wedding day filmmakers in the world. This course if very applicable to all wedding day filmmakers no matter where you are in your wedding day filming career. Though geared for filmmakers seeking to shoot high-end events, there is something here for everyone seeking to take their game up a notch. If you are currently filming in the low to mid-range, this course is full of valuable information for you. Even if you are already into the higher range, if you pick up even one or two new ideas, it is still well worth the money. Ray's pacing throughout the course if perfect. He provides all the information necessary, but with no fluff. Ray not only tells you what to do in each circumstance, but also provides the why and the how to accomplish each goal. The cost of the course is absolutely money well spent.

Ray is undoubtably a legend in the international wedding industry. Two months ago, I was getting ready to get on a plane to attend one of his live-seminars… then… covid-19 occurred and this AMAZING course came out. Perfect timing! Being able to see the whole wedding day through his creative eye was a dream coming true. Absolutely recommended if you’re looking forward to step up your game!

I've been a fan of Rays work when I found him online in 2008, always helpful and responds and never holds anything back. I come back to this class and his CreativeLives a lot, when I have problems at weddings or situations that are awful. A truly genuine nice guy and legit wants the community to grow and become better. I'll always support his work and learn from him. He is the real deal.

It is an amazing course! Even though we’ve been in the TV industry for 20 years, we’ve learned so much by watching the course and listening to Ray sharing his experience! Loved the aesthetics of the way the course is shot and edited! In the end, it feels like a very talented, experienced and high end cinematographer just gives you a big hug and tells you that you are capable of things you wouldn’t have even dreamed of. Very inspiring!

The course is concise. No fluff, no time wasted once you're past the intro. If you're like me, you've done your endless googling and research on Youtube. You've likely even shot a handful of weddings. You know enough to not completely waste the time and money of your clients but you don't know the finer points that can really set you apart from other local shooters. Seeing how a big ticket wedding filmmaker approaches the same problems us novices deal with is more than worth the price of admission. You will definitely walk away with the confidence to do more and really just unlock the potential you knew you had all along. You wouldn't be here or trying this wedding filmmaking stuff if that wasn't the case. My 2021/2020 bookings just got an upgrade in quality and they don't even know it yet. Thanks MZed and thanks Ray. When this pandemic is over, I owe you a coffee.

Amazing! Just like he says, this was a stress-proof blueprint for me to know in which direction to go as a wedding filmmaker, both technically and business-related. I feel so inspired and prepared after the course.

Ray has a right-to-the-point way of teaching things. He does a really great job of explaining why he shoots the way he shoots as well. As an experienced wedding filmmaker, education is one of the best investments you can make, no matter how good you think you are, there will always be room for improvement. There's parts of the course that make you say "ah-ha!" and answers something you have been trying to figure out. I highly suggest this course to anyone out there who wants to improve the way of creating wedding films that stand out from the others!

It's a great course. I am totally new to wedding films, so this was super helpful. Totally worth the investment. But one point where it totally missed the mark is post production workflow. As someone who is totally new, the post-production workflow would have helped tremendously. That would have given this course 10 stars. But, I would still recommend it strongly to anyone looking to learn wedding filmmaking.

Great and invaluable course. Wish there would have been a little more time digging into the nitty gritty of editing. But overall way worth the value and more!

It's great course with a wonderful wedding videographer but for me the chapter about postproduction is poor with zero technical information. It's only couple of wedding video and talking about music but where is leason about colorizing. I would like know more about lightning, more deep technical informations not only base knowledge. Anyway thank you for this course and great job.
