My path as a wedding videographer forged rather quickly. I started back in August 2015, and my efforts evolved into the full-time position of Co-Director of the "brick-and-mortar" company - Weenta Productions. Never have I felt such a strong sense of gratitude and accomplishment.
How did success manifest so quickly? Well, of course, Highlight Documentaries entail hard work as well as focused time and energy. But, my real answer is..
Sentimentality helps. And I experience it in large quantities.
Also, it just so happens, my twin brother experiences sentimentality in disproportionately large quantities, too. Thus, upon receiving a wedding invitation from his boss, what did my brother go ahead and do? He referred me.
Allow me to note: I am the outgoing twin. So, you can imagine my surprise when news reached me that Rob's boss, Fevu "Feven" Fessehaye [now, with the full name - Fevu "Feven" Fessehaye Smith] desired me as her wedding videographer. Over Thanksgiving, Feven (Fevu) hosted my loved ones and me for traditional Eritrean coffee. As the fresh coffee beans danced over smoke and small flame, we built client-vendor rappeur. April finally rolled around, and my surprise became my honor. My family attended and my brother stuck around (by my side to drive me home). The wedding's runtime was shorter than Feven had hoped for her traditional Eritrean wedding. It was an 8-hour long journey...celebration.
Of the weddings I've had the honor to document, Fevu's marriage to Rome Smith- an experience enveloped in effulgent affection and impressive beauty- is incomparable. Looking back now and regarding the fact that my business partner is Eritrean, as well, I feel so sentimental.
