I've always loved the idea of Same Day Slideshows at weddings . It's a beautiful way to showcase images from the start of the day for the guests who weren't able to view the "behind the scenes" and a fabulous opportunity to round out the story of the day. Not to mention, I remember how
impatient excited I was to have a peek at our wedding photos, so to have the luxury of viewing several shortly after the ceremony is a treat! Ever since I experienced my first Same Day Slideshow at Emilee & Rich's celebration, I have been in search of an easy, conveinent, and less time consuming way to load and display the images with less hassle. I had dreamed of using an iPad, but lacking its USB port capabilities deemed it twice as time consuming. Until I found Apple's iPad Camera Connection Kit.
Here's a demo of how this genius device works, the first video ever shot on my new GoPro (thanks Marshall!) and how seamless it is to create slideshows during dinner. I can't wait to start offering these to my couples in 2013, along with lots of other fancy schamcy iPad features. Ohhh iPad, I knew we were meant to be. Marshall's never getting to use this thing again! ;)
**correction: I said the card doesn't support RAW files, but the Apple website says it does. Maybe I was just too impatient to wait for the RAW files to load, none-the-less, I couldn't seem to get it to work. Regardless, JPEGs load faster, and I am going for speed with this uploading, so I will stick to the RAW+JPEG shooting style. Photographers gotta get it done quick so she can still eat before the dancing starts, ya know?
