When we first saw the above video of Kaleb and Evita's drop dead gorgeous elopement in the Moab, Utah, our first thought was "Is this even real?" We've seen our fair share of wedding videography (probs more than our share, TBH), but even we had to hit replay — more than once, we might add — because not only is this a stunning desert glam elopement, but the entire video was captured with... An honest-to-goodness iPhone 7.
What? What? What?
That's right. This wedding video wasn't captured with an enormous camera that would cost you several months' rent or heavy equipment that you probably won't be able to lift (even after you stepped up your strength routine for that strapless gown) — this lavish love story was filmed with just the little old thing lying in the bottom of your purse.
Husband and wife videography team, White in Revery shot the dreamy desert elopement with only an iPhone 7 and 7 Plus, outfitting the phones with the latest iOS-compatible lenses and gadgets — including a Beastgrip Pro (the world's first universal lens adapter and camera rig system for smartphones), a DJI Osmo Mobile, and an array of Moment lenses — to best capture the epic landscape and swoon-worthy moments.
While the videography duo has filmed more than 100 elopements and weddings, this is White in Revery's first iPhone-only shoot. "We are always looking for creative ways to tell a couple’s story," the Denver-based team shared with BRIDES. "The iPhone 7 pushed us to think outside the box while still maintaining focus on the emotion and story of the couple."
Still don't believe us? We know, it's pretty unbelievable. But just check out some of the epic behind-the-scenes of this iPhone-shot film. We could legit watch Kaleb and Evita frolic through the breathtaking landscape, dance in the rays of the scarlet-hued sunset, and exchange the most romantic wedding vows on repeat.
Guys, do we smell the next wedding trend, here? Well, while the camera capabilities of Apple products are pretty darn incredible, before you hand your iPhone over to a bridesmaid and dub her your videographer, it sorta kinda helps to have actual talent and experience with videography to pull off a professional-quality wedding video.
But when it comes to unconventional "I do" destinations where it's not exactly easy to tote heavy camera equipment (like the Moab canyon terrain for instance), this could be a total game changer.
BRB, watching this a few more (hundred) times...
