I’m going to start this post out right off the bat by being kind of morbid—what do you want to leave behind when you die? I was listening to a podcast today about scrapbooking and memory keeping in general. They were talking about how they imagine their funeral; the room is filed with scrapbooks and all of the people that they love are flipping through each book and remembering the moments that they captured with bits of paper and tons of photos. This really got me thinking about why I memory keep. Because honestly, I memory keep for this exact reason. I memory keep with the intention of leaving something behind so that future family members can watch my videos, flip through my journals, and glance at my scrapbooks to remember who I was/am.
My camera bag is the bag that I take when I’m filming a wedding, the bag I grab when I want to have all my gear for shooting a more cinematic vlog, or the bag I keep at home simply to store all of my camera gear in so it’s always in one spot. I love this bag, like a lot; it’s the Kelly Moore Libby 2.0 vegan leather tote in Saddle. My mom got it for me during Christmas when it was on a reallllyy good sale, and I told her that she just couldn’t pass it up. This thing is currently my ride or die, so I thought I’d show you what I shove in it on a regular basis.
This is big news! It’s really exciting, it’s really scary, and it's going to be a really big change. But we are so pumped for this. I mentioned in my 2019 post that we would have some exciting changes to announce and this was one of them. If you’ve been reading my blog for the past year or so, you’ll know that firstly I haven’t been posting like AT. ALL. Secondly, that I haven’t been happy lately. And finally, that I constantly say “I hate my job.” Well this is us taking steps to fix these problems.
I wanted to write this post today about Lang Videography. For those of you who may be unaware, I started a videography business earlier this year. We’ve booked a a good number of wedding events so far, and it’s been a great learning experience. I’m really excited for the future of Lang Videography, so I wanted to share some of my work here.
