Animoto is a site that I found that can turn your photos, video clips and favorite music into a video masterpiece. It is fast, FREE, and extremely easy! Then, when you are done you can send it via email, Facebook, Twitter and more. I seriously made mine in less than 10 minutes and my husband was SUPER impressed. He thought I spent hours!

For this video I chose some of my favorite pictures from our wedding along with “our” song. Check it out:

I had so much fun making these – I couldn’t do just one! For this one, I had some pictures from a 1940’s photo shoot that my husband and I modeled for. It was such a fun memory for both of us, but one of those things that you don’t know what to do with the pictures afterwards. So I made this video:

 Ready to make your own? Here is how it works:

  1. Go to animoto.com
  2. Click “sign up” – Sign up is completely free! With your free account you get unlimited video creating and sharing of 30 second videos. I think that 30 seconds is PERFECT for  this type of project. There are other paid options if you want to make a longer video too, but for a quick “I love You” – 30 seconds is just right!
  3. Once you are signed in – choose from a  selection of pre-designed styles. I suggest looking through the tab labeled “romantic”  but there are lots of options to choose from.
  4. Once your style is selected – click “Make a 30 second video for free”
  5.  Now is the fun part! You can can upload pictures from your computer, but you can even take them from Facebook, Instagram, Flicker, SmugMug, Picasa, Photobucket and more – straight from this website! It is so easy! You can also add text, change the song – whatever you want to do to make it personal to you!
  6. When you are done creating, click ‘”preview” & when you officially approve: click “produce”
  7. From here, you can share it via email, Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube. I posted my video to Facebook and tagged my honey in it. It made his day!

I met my husband, in a beginning ballroom dance class at the age of 15. He was my first crush, my first date, and twelve years (to the day) later we married. Together we enjoy traveling the world, and, of course, going on creative dates! I am a former theatre teacher who now stays at home with a spunky little boy. I love dancing, hosting parties, photography, organizing & chocolate!
