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!

Rhea + Alex || Wedding Highlight Film || Etiwanda Gardens, Etiwanda, CA

Got another cute one for you guys. Rhea and Alex’s vows were some of the most aw-worthy I’ve heard in a while, and their whole day was filled with so much sweetness and sentimentality, from gift exchanges in the morning to heartfelt speeches at the reception. Finally, to top off a perfect day, when we were leaving, Rhea’s mom actually ran up to me to give me a hug and say thanks. All in all, I’m grateful to have gotten the chance to capture this amazing couple’s day and I hope you guys enjoy their film!

Jasmine + Jacob || Wedding Highlight Film || Los Verdes Golf Course, Rancho Palos Verdes

There’s plenty of pretty footage to be found in this wedding film, although that’s thanks in large part to our beautiful venues throughout the day and our even more amazing couple. Jasmine and Jacob had a small and intimate bridal party which made shooting their photo session one of the easiest we’ve ever done. We got to fly our drone over the cliffs of Palos Verdes, and even if we didn’t have the most time to shoot, the natural beauty of the place made our jobs an absolute dream come true. Thanks again for bringing us out to celebrate the day with you, and hope you guys love your film!

Andrea + Wilfred || Wedding Highlight Film || Calamigos Ranch, Malibu

Calamigos Ranch is one of our favorite wedding spots. This time around though we got to shoot it with our drone and really take advantage of the gorgeous weather and beautiful scenery. On top of that, Andrea and Wilfred were perfect for our cameras and we couldn’t have asked for a better day to capture. There was so much more footage we didn’t get to include in the highlight including performances from the bride and mother of the bride. We hope you enjoyed it just as much as we did and hopefully we can bring you much more Calamigos weddings. Please enjoy!

Channary + Chris || Artistic Wedding Feature Film || Palos Verdes, CA

These two came into our lives at the wedding of Lauren and Mike and I couldn’t forget them. They were the best dancers on the floor that night and totally rocked it for our wedding film and photos. So I could only expect the party to be just as crazy at their wedding. Channary and Chris delivered and have been such a good couple to us. I loved their engagement photos, their wedding photos, and here’s to this final film, their artistic feature film. Hope you love it! Please enjoy!

Jessica + Michael || Wedding Highlight Film || Santa Monica Merry Go Round, Santa Monica, CA

It’s been a bit since we’ve shot this wedding but it’s even been longer since Jessica and Michael booked us! We’ve been waiting for this wedding for years, since they saw our work from Carissa and Michael’s wedding. Jessica and Michael have a magical story where princess finds her prince and really kept true to their story, living happily ever after. I’m really happy with how we captured their fairy tale story and I hope you guys love it as well! Please enjoy!

Nancy + Thomas || Wedding Highlight Film || Brick, San Diego, CA

A little while back, we had the pleasure of shooting one of the cutest weddings ever — complete with perfectly sentimental vows and a jump scare during the first look xD Really, this one’s definitely “aww”-worthy, I’ll just let it speak for itself. Enjoy!

Brittani + Rodney || Same Day Edit Highlight Film || The Vintage Rose, Tustin, CA

Talk about your gorgeous weddings. Brittani and Rodney got hitched yesterday in a lush front porch ceremony, with every inch of the place just bedecked with decorative picture frames and hanging vines and adorable wooden plaques with heartfelt sayings painted on them — the works. This of course was followed by an equally lovely reception at The Vintage Rose in Tustin, with even more cute picture frames and string lights and basically anything a pinterest/craft-loving editor could ask for. xP

Shout outs to my team for capturing the day beautifully, and to Sandy, Aida, Rebecca, Jen and Sang (sorry for any misspellings) for making our jobs super easy. And finally, to Britt and Rod. Seeing you guys enjoy your film last night was the best part of my day, and the best thanks any editor could ask for.

Please enjoy watching again!

Joanne + Allen || Wedding Highlight Film || Palms Beach Resort, Dominican Republic

Not gonna lie, this one was an absolute doozy. Around the end of August, Justin and I flew out to Dominican Republic, each as a one-man photo and video team, to shoot Joanne and Allen’s gorgeous paradise wedding at the Palm Beach resort. And it was probably one of the hardest things we’ve ever had to do — running three to four different cameras at a time, hauling all our equipment from place to place, all while making sure we got all the shots we needed. There’s a reason they have film crews for this stuff haha.

In the end though, it was a rewarding experience that, at the very least, taught us we could pull off something like this, even though we probably wouldn’t want to carry all that gear everywhere:P

It also happened to be my birthday on the wedding day, and Joanne and Allen and everyone were super sweet about it, greeting me and Joanne even letting me borrow her flip flops after wearing dress shoes all day. Thanks again for inviting us to celebrate with you guys. Hope it all paid off and you love your film. Please enjoy!

Linda + Dennis || Artistic Feature Film || Huntington Beach, Venue by Three Petals

Linda and Dennis had a beautiful wedding in Huntington Beach a while back, and I’m excited to finally get to share their full length wedding film. As their best man so aptly stated during his speech at the reception, it’s impressive enough putting together a traditional western wedding, but couples who incorporate cultural traditions like tea ceremonies are the ultimate troopers — sometimes winding up with wedding days that are up to 16 hours long or more. Here you’ll get to see everything, plus some moments that weren’t included in the highlight film (there’s some especially dorky scenes from the girls during getting ready haha ;D)

Please enjoy!
