Chiell-Ann + Nick || Save the Date Film || Tokyo, Japan

I miss Japan so much you guys, you don’t even know. Alas, I’ll just have to console myself by making cool stuff related to Japan. Or at least, I think it’s cool. I know for sure the couple in it is cool. Hope you guys think it’s cool too xP

Milly + Brent || Wedding Highlight Film || Los Coyotes Country Club, Buena Park

We partied it up with Milly and Brent a couple of weeks ago and our last wedding before the “official” start of the 2017 season. Though their wedding was filled with several highlights from their beautiful venue to their amazing band, my favorite part of the day by far was sitting in the car on the way to the ceremony and listening to their daughter Hayden talk about how excited she was for her parents to finally be married. It was seriously the cutest thing.

Congrats again Milly and Brent, and hope you love your film!

Sharon + Dean || Wedding Highlight Film || Lakewood Country Club, Lakewood

Sharon and Dean were the absolute cutest, Disney/Star Wars/Marvel geeks after my own heart. <3 We got a chance to shoot their amazing Beauty and the Beast themed wedding a few weeks back and it was a blast, from the groomsmen dancing in the morning to Dean changing halfway through the first dance from his regular jacket into Beast’s blue coat! There’s plenty to love from this wedding, and I tried a few new techniques this time around too, hope you guys like it! @dominique

Jennifer + Michael || Wedding Highlight Film || Eagle’s Nest

Jen and Mike have a pretty inspirational story in that they’ve been doing long distance for pretty much the majority of their relationship. Despite that, they’re still two of the most in-sync and affectionate couples we’ve ever gotten the pleasure to shoot. There’s plenty to see in this video, including a special bridal party hip hop performance (which will be uploaded on its own soon)- and a surprise song from the groom to the bride.

Hope you guys like it!:)

Soshanna + Tab || Artistic Feature Film || Costa Mesa

I said it before, I will say it again: my #1 goal in life is to be half as cool as this couple. She’s a genius model/anime nerd, he’s a rockstar hair stylist. They rode into their reception on the back of a classic red Chevy El Camino. Their caterers were In-N-Out.

There’s more I could say, but you really would be better off just watching this video. It’ll be the best way to spend the next 13 minutes of your life, promise.:)

Jeanna + Jay || Wedding Highlight Film || Pelican Hill Resort, Newport Beach

We had a chance to shoot one of our most beautiful weddings out at the Pelican Hills resort in Newport Beach for Jeanna and Jay a few weeks back. From Jay’s awesome baby blue brocade suit to the hanging cake display, everything about the wedding went so above and beyond. We were also lucky enough to have our drone pilot fly out and really capture the full scope of the amazing venue. All in all, this film is definitely one worth seeing, hope you guys love it!

Nika + Tucker || Wedding Highlight Film || Grand Tradition, Fallbrook, CA

This one’s pretty near and dear to my heart. I’ve known Veronica since we were 9 and everyone still called her Veronica rather than her preferred current nickname Nika — and she’s been one of my best friends every since. Always the “pretty one” of our group, she’s also always been incredibly outgoing, driven, and kind. We literally could not go anywhere during college without at least one person knowing her. And Tucker has always been the perfect complement to her. There’s so much more I could say, but the video really speaks for itself. These two really belong together. Hope you guys see it too!

Michelle + Franco || Wedding Highlight Film || Eagle’s Nest, Cypress, CA

I love this couple so so much you guys. They’re huge geeks, super sweet, and their first dance was to the Yuri on Ice theme song. No joke, there was at least like 5 seconds when I stopped recording and was just singing and waving my arms along to the song. I am only a little bit sorry for this.

Really though, this wedding was just so much fun to shoot and I really hope you all enjoy the film!

Sara + Nathan || Wedding Highlight Film || The Estate on Second, Santa Ana

We spent our first wedding of the year at the new Estate on Second venue in Downtown Santa Ana. Sara and Nathan and their parents and their whole bridal party were super adorable, just good vibes and laughter the whole day through. We also got lots of awesome sound bytes at this one, so I hope you guys enjoy it!

Ashley + John || Save the Date || Old Town Sacramento, CA

Justin and I went up to Sacramento back in December to hang out with these dorks. Haha I kid, but really, Ashley and John were such a fun couple and we had a blast bearing the brutal Norcal cold and running around Old Town. Plus they were nice enough to bring us out to some of the best AYCE shabu I’ve ever had.

I tried a couple of new techniques for this Save the Date film, so I hope you guys like it!

Thank you guys so much for your hospitality, and I’m looking forward to seeing you in September!:)

Jessica + Michael || Wedding Film || Santa Monica, CA

2016 had a few bright spots, including working some really awesome couples like Jessica and Michael. Disney fans after my own heart, these two met working in the park and included their love of Disney all throughout their wedding, from their homemade fairytale book backdrop to their very own carousel at Santa Monica Pier.

Here’s the full version of their film, please enjoy their perfect fairy tale wedding!

Dani + Andy || Wedding Highlight Film || Oak Creek Golf Club, Irvine, CA

And here we are folks, the last wedding of 2016! Dani and Andy were super sweet and had one of the nicest bridal parties we’ve ever worked with. Dani’s dad even helped us set the dress up with his own handy ladder. We were also lucky enough to grab about half an hour of beautiful sunlight amid the clouds to shoot the bride and bridesmaids and establishing shots of the lovely golf course in the morning. Thanks Dani and Andy for trusting us to capture your special day and I hope you guys love your film!

Jaemee + Ejay || Wedding Highlight Film || Padua Hills Theatre, Claremont, CA

Funny story about this one, we actually went mini-viral thanks to our super hip shooter Darrell Ann and our amazingly down bridal party, who were one of the first to do a wedding mannequin challenge. (Proof here: http://www.popsugar.com/love/Mannequin-Challenge-Wedding-42676831) It also happened to be one of the funnest and prettiest weddings we’ve shot this year, so I hope you guys enjoy it too:)

Tiffany + Derrick || Wedding Highlight Film || Metropol Banquet Hall, Glendale, CA

Okay so I’ve probably said it before, but seriously, Tiffany and Derrick had the best. vows. EVER. Minus a few not insignificant technical difficulties, this video was such a blast to shoot and edit. Kicking off with Chinese door games, followed by an awesome photo session in downtown Los Angeles, and ending with an adorable blindfold game in which Derrick had to identify his bride based solely on the feel of her hands, this wedding was definitely on the favorites of the year. Hope you guys like it too. Enjoy!
