Langdon Hall

Langdon_Still_Blog-1001

Earlier this summer I teamed up with the folks at Langdon Hall to create a video for their homepage (Note: it only appears in a desktop browser, not on mobile). The idea was to create a handful of shots to illustrate the experience of visiting Langdon, whether you’re staying overnight, getting a spa treatment, tasting wine with one of their sommeliers, or eating a gourmet meal prepared by chef Jason Bangerter. The images have very little, or at least very simple staging, with zero camera movement, meant to feel almost like still photos. The mildly OCD part of my brain that loves the art direction of Kubrick and Wes Anderson movies was very satisfied by all of the straight lines and symmetry to be found at Langdon.

It’s also one of the nicest wedding venues in the area. The one hit against it in the past, I think, was that you couldn’t have a large number of guests. They’re currently expanding, with the construction of a brand new reception hall. See a wedding video set at Langdon Hall in the above video!

December was a pretty mild offering this year. Ella and James’s wedding didn’t look like it was going to have any snow, that is, until the day before. You couldn’t have asked for better timing—in the summer you hope for a little sun, but in the winter you hope for that magic line between too cold, and just cold enough. The snow clinging to the branches in the above shot had fallen only hours before Ella and James had arrived. Details like that can’t be faked (not without an expensive movie crew on location) so it’s nice when you get lucky sometimes.
