Watch what can happen when you let a dog shoot your wedding video

Wedding by Tucker
Four-legged friends have popped up at weddings as ring bearers and flower girls — but wedding videographer may be a new gig as far as canines are concerned. Newly married couple Megan and Seth Stulgis recently mounted a GoPro on their dog and had him take video of their big day.

The video follows the exploits of Tucker — who appears to be a Golden Retriever or similar breed — as he greets wedding guests, walks down the aisle, cruises past the dance floor, and explores some bushes. The video, shared by the video’s editor, John Johnson, on Monday on Vimeo, reimagines the popular action camera as a way to shoot a wedding from a rather unique point of view.

The dog appears to at least be very good at getting shots of all of the guests — in the video, Tucker seems to happily greet the guests for a few pats on the head, capturing that “aww” reaction that most people have at the sight of a friendly canine.

The video may not be the steadiest video shot as Tucker likes to flop his ears, but the bride and groom’s idea for some unique wedding shots is certainly, at the very least, entertaining to watch.

Wedding videographers won’t have to worry much about Tucker’s low and shaky perspective taking away business —Tucker did even capture a shot of the actual wedding photographer at work — but animal-shot videos seem to be growing in popularity based on their charm.

A Twin Cities high school student in Minnesota garnered some attention when she used a dog-mounted camera to shoot other four-legged friends without the distraction of a human in the mix. Animal “selfies” captured when critters steal cameras have a tendency of going viral. And of course, there’s the infamous monkey selfie that caused a lawsuit, with PETA saying critters should be able to own a copyright.

Either way, Tucker deserves a treat and a few “Good boys” for his rather entertaining work at his owners’ wedding.

Prenuptial Housing lets couples on the outs easily split their home in half
prenup house splits in two after a divorce prenuphome2

As most newly married couples may attest, there's no easy way to talk about the possibility of signing a prenuptial agreement -- no matter how "right" the decision might be. While a simple signature on a stack of legal documents helps could-be exes divvy up their fair shares of an estate, a recent concept designed by Studio OBA blows conventional prenups out of the water in terms of controversy. Dubbed Prenuptial Housing, Studio OBA's concept is a floating home that boasts the incredibly odd trait of splitting into two homes in the event of a couple's divorce. Should a wedded couple decide to ice their marriage, a simple flip of a switch allows them to drift away with their half of the home.

Conceptualized by Dutch entrepreneur Omar Kbiri, the idea came about while he was shopping for a new home with his girlfriend. The unfortunate statistic of rising divorce rates came to Kbiri as a sort of "aha" moment, and it was then that he wondered how he could design a home that featured the ability to be split up in the event of a, well, split. To help bring the idea to life, Kbiri enlisted the help of Studio OBA to officially design the unique abode.

Most 9-year-olds play with cameras, this one gets hired to shoot weddings
nine year old fujifilm photographer regina wylie kevin copyright

Regina Wyllie is a talented and capable photographer. Like many professionals, she fell in love with the craft at a young age and got her start as an assistant. Unlike many photographers, however, she is still at that young age. Having not yet completed her first decade, Regina has done such a good job assisting her father, Kevin Wyllie (an actual working photographer), that a bride and groom requested her by name.

The young photographer’s notoriety is a result not just of her age, but of her vision and professionalism. By age seven, she was shooting cameras in full manual mode, adjusting all aspects of exposure herself. Partly thanks to her size, she also brings a unique perspective to a wedding shoot, noticing moments and capturing angles that might otherwise be overlooked (no pun intended).
