Genevie + Jeff || Same Day Edit Wedding Highlight Film || Castaway, Burbank

I met Genevie and Jeff when I was a groomsmen for my friend Junnel’s wedding. Genevie was a bridesmaid and from then I was able to get to know Gen and Jeff much better. Other than obviously being a part of their wedding as their photographer, videographer, and photobooth supply, we had tons of similar interests and geek out together on the frequent. Im excited for our future Disney runs and random hang outs – Their wedding really reflected their personalities, their love for all that is Disney, and the super cool side of Jeff that you’ll see here in this same day edit film. I have to admit Jeff makes me want to stop shooting altogether and enlist in the Marine Corp. Mainly so I can wear those sleek uniforms haha. Hope you love this!

Theresa + Peter || Wedding Highlight Film || Summit House, Fullerton

It’s a weird feeling finishing a video, whether it be a full-length feature or a quick, 4 minute highlight. For about a week, you’re practically living with the people on your screen, hearing them laugh, watching them *try* to dance, basically seeing them relive the best moments of their lives over and over again. Welp, it’s finally time to bid adieu to Theresa and Peter, who celebrated their nuptials on an overcast day in Fullerton a couple weeks back. The lovely weather and even lovelier hilltop setting were kind to our team, and resulted in some truly gorgeous shots (drone, anyone?). Hope you guys enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed editing (or, hey, even more).:P

Loramae + Raffy || Same Day Edit Wedding Highlight Film || Long Beach, CA

Continuing onward through our wedding season trek with our next stop: Lora and Raffy’s wedding at the Grand in Long Beach. Raffy and Lora were incredibly accomodating for our team and I can’t say better things about them. They booked our whole package, photobooth, same day edit video and photography for the entire day and we really made the best of all the time we had, even if we ran a little behind, we still had enough time to get these great shots and put together this beautiful film put together by our film team. Thanks so much for choosing us and hope you are enjoying Greece! Please enjoy!

Tina + John || Wedding Highlight Film || Los Coyotes, Buena Park

Tina and Woody were an absolute trip. We spent the day with them earlier this month bouncing around Orange County. And I mean literally bouncing. I have yet to see a bride as hyper and dance-y as Tina was. And, as you can see in the video, the energy was positively contagious. We also got the chance to play with some new coloring techniques for their video, so I’m particularly pleased about how this one looks. Hope you guys like it too!

Fay + Tony || Same Day Edit Wedding Highlight Film || Long Beach Japanese Gardens – Mon Amour

I’m in love with this highlight film. Besides seeing so much of last night’s reception in the same day film, (especially Fay and Tony’s fun choreographed dances) I was really captivated by all the emotion, fun, funky, wacky, high on life moments captured by our team from start to finish. I loved every minute of shooting this wedding and I’m sure you can tell. It’s some of our favorite local locations to shoot at, and we hope hope hope we did it justice once again. Thank you Tony and Fay for being fans, finding us, and letting us do our magic, hope you enjoy this for years to come!

Melissa + Elmer || Same Day Wedding Highlight Film || El Prado, San Diego

One of the best parts about weddings is reuniting with clients you haven’t seen in a while, especially when they’ve booked a same day edit. Seeing their faces as they watch your work for the day, it’s like giving a gift to old friends. I first met Melissa and Elmer assisting Justin on their engagement shoot last October, and it was great reuniting with them for their gorgeous and epic party at Balboa Park in San Diego this past Saturday. Thankfully, Melmer & co. were just as amazing and fun as I remembered. Check out the highlights from their day below, plus the totally awesome surprise lip sync thrown together by friends and family (and edited by yours truly). It’s all super fun, I promise.

Brenda + Colin || Save The Date Film

Sometimes when you think of beautiful imagery, elegant film cuts, and amazing compositions in photography, you think of locations that exude epic’ness or that are stop you in tracks beautiful. The Eiffel Tower, a Maui sunset. This short edit though has to be some of the most beautiful imagery I’ve seen, in such a simple but powerful way. This was a short shoot, a jump and step down the street from our home at a small park in Irvine, CA. Brenda and Colin got to show use their personalities for the third time, and thus officially graduated the JustinElement school of posing. Hope you love this beautiful short and appreciate the impeccable imagery that Dominique put together. Please enjoy. #brendalovescolin

Lucci + Mario || Same Day Wedding Highlight Film || Cypress, CA

Just got back from our first double hitter of the month, and I can’t imagine a more fun couple to kick us off than Lucci and Mario. The whole Element team was called out for their epic, music-themed shindig on Friday — photo, video, and photobooth. And even though I spent most of the day trapped in the edit bay, it was a treat seeing their personalities shine through all the details. Look for custom dated Jordans, beer bottle sand ceremonies, concert ticket seating cards, and more. Enjoy:)

Kimmie + Bryan || Same Day Wedding Highlight || Calamigos Ranch, Malibu

Out in Malibu, there’s a hundred-ish year old oak tree with dangling string lights that I swear looks like Rivendell. Or Pandora, or any movie with magic sparkly greenery. It was under this tree that Kimmie and Bryan decided to tie the knot. This past weekend’s same day edit was a blast, from the daunting two hour road trip from home, to running around old carousels and ferris wheels, to hearing the couple cheer as their video played at the reception. Thanks again for inviting us to the party.

Cathy and Michael got hitched at The Loft in Long Beach a couple weeks ago. Check out this highlight film I made of one of the most classic, low-key cool weddings I’ve ever seen, for one of the most classic, low-key, and adorable couples I’ve ever had the pleasure to shoot. You might even recognize a face or two. Enjoy!

Kristin + Matt || Married || Artistic Feature Film

There was a great moment at Kristin and Matt’s reception back in January, where the best man posed a simple question. If Kristin or Matt had changed anyone’s lives for the better, he asked, whether that meant telling a joke or helping a career change or what have you, would they please raise their hands. Of course, it was their wedding, so minus the wait staff, there wasn’t a single unraised arm in the place, but you get the point.

It’s been a while since then, but I am honored to finally get to share their full length wedding film. Even within the few hours we spent together, it was obvious that both Kristin and Matt were just two of the most down to earth and loving people. I only hope their video makes that as obvious to you as it was to everyone else in that room.

Enjoy!

Athena’s 18th Birthday Debut Highlight Film

How do I begin to explain Athena Alberto. Athena Alberto is flawless. She traded her two Fendi purses for a fabulous debut. I hear her hair’s insured for $10,000. One time she met Manny Pacquiao on a plane, and he punched her in the face. Wait.

Jokes aside, I had the pleasure of meeting miss Athena a couple months ago over Korean BBQ, and was blessed to meet one of the sweetest, most gracious 18 year olds ever. Seriously, I can’t count how many times that night she said thank you, not only to us, but to her parents and everyone in attendance. So thank you Athena for letting our team take part in your special day. I wish you the best of luck with the rest of your senior year, and happy birthday again!:)

Seyla + Peter || Same Day Edit Wedding Highlight Film

There’s a gorgeous, night-clubby banquet hall in Anaheim that you’d have no idea was there if you were just driving by. It’s literally tucked into the same plaza as a gym, a Subway, and an auto shop, but it’s one of our favorite locations to shoot. Looking back, it feels like the theme of this whole wedding was “hidden gems.” From Seyla’s lavish Vera Wang gown (hidden in its white carrying bag), to the couple’s handwritten messages in the bottle, to the lovely ceremony at the Japanese gardens, and finally, to the posh reception at Mon Amour, each part of the day felt like its own little oyster. Tucked behind a nondescript shell, but opening up to reveal the most beautiful insides.

All right, that was goofy as heck, but you get the point.

Any who, this was our second same day edit of the year, my first same day edit on my own. The downside of SDEs is that you don’t get to spend a lot of time getting to know the couple, but it was great getting to sort of re-experience everything as I looked through the files. I’m also super proud of my team for their great work. We pulled out all the stops for this one — slow-mos, blurry macros, silhouettes, and more. Hands down, some of the best, most creative, most meticulous work we’ve ever done. Hope you guys like it too.

Nina + Steven || Same Day Wedding Highlight Film

Last weekend marked our first same day edit of 2015, and I have to admit it was an adventure. Luckily, Nina and Steven gave us plenty of material to work with, with a full 16 hour day including a Vietnamese tea ceremony, first look, American wedding ceremony, and lavish reception. Hopefully this SDE provides some sense of the fun, beauty, and craziness of the day. Please enjoy!
