It's no secret that one of our best friends is Giving Tree Photography (Jodi Bodtke and her sidekick, Jade Stell). We go back a ways and the connections run pretty deep. We even had the privilege of shooting Jodi and her husband Jeff's wedding day.
So with all this fun synergy going on, we came up with an idea to spend a few short hours shooting on the shores of Lake Michigan while she and Jade do their thing.
It was a really fun opportunity to try new production techniques, catch some amazing sunset light and just have a blast with some friends.
For this short, we set out to utilize as much footage as we could while creating a piece that allows the viewer to see the joy that runs through Jodi and Jade's veins, but also understanding the work and effort involved in the work they do.
