It was such a pleasure to get to know Amanda + Damola over the past year. Upon first meeting them, it was fun to joke with Damola about the Oregon–Oregon State football rivalry – he played football at Oregon State and we’re huge Oregon Duck fans. Although we may have scored a few points when we produced this film for the Oregon State-USC game last November.
Amanda + Damola have an incredible story. They were high school sweethearts. They met at a school dance and have been together for over 8 years. We were able to film their Love Story, as well as produce a Same Day Edit for their wedding in January at the Eugene Hilton.
They planned their wedding strategically after the football season, as Damola is currently playing for the Oakland Raiders. Despite the planning, we had to push off the filming of their Love Story because the Raiders were still in the NFL playoff hunt. We braved the cold, wet, January weather on the OSU campus for their Love Story shoot and then filmed the interview at Amanda’s parents farm near Harrisburg, Oregon.
All in all, their wedding was beautiful and Amanda + Damola were a ton of fun to work with. We enjoyed every minute of creating their wedding film. We hope you enjoy it as well.
