Whenever we hear of a Republican and Democrat being anywhere near one another, we usually joke that there is only fighting words being spoken between each other, but on Friday, January 24, 2014, one Republican and one Democrat decided to play nice with each other. Matter of fact, they decided to tie the knot together! Lisa and Dan this weekend invited us for a front row seat of their emotional roller coaster of a day. Dan wasn’t allowed to get a look at his bride until the doors would open to reveal her at the ceremony and I believe we captured his excitement and anticipation pretty well! The Richard Nixon Library was their venue for their reception, as Lisa loves the world of politics so much, and it was beautiful beyond words. We’ve been waiting to shoot at the Nixon Library for a while now so when Lisa gave us the call that they’d be having their wedding here, we just couldn’t wait for this day to come. Our team had a great time putting this video together for you all, so thanks Lisa and Dan for having us out for your wedding, we love you guys and hope you enjoy your married life!
It was the team’s first time at the Robinson Ranch Golf Club where Nicole and Gary finally tied the knot. We were among family and close friends as we watched our couple light their candle together at their ceremony and dance their first dance as husband and wife. Nicole and Gary’s genuine love for each other brought out some of the most natural emotions I’ve ever seen from two people, which made it so easy to capture the happy moments during their day. As their videography team, we couldn’t have asked for better weather that day; we hope that their video proves how amazing Winter in California can be. Thank you Nicole and Gary for inviting us out for your wedding day. Enjoy your video!
We hit the streets of beautiful San Juan Capistrano for our last videography wedding of our season and we couldn’t have chosen a better couple for it than Michael and Annie, the new Mr. and Mrs. Aung! Everyone, from the bridal party to the guests, were so chill but energetic at the same time that it made it easy for us to get our job done. There was not a dry eye in the gardens when they had their first look, and not one face that wasn’t smiling during their beautifully choreographed first dance. Annie and Michael definitely knew how to make their wedding entertaining for us and their guests. We hope that our highlight video of their day can bring a smile or two out of you as you watch it. Thank you for having us out for your special day Annie and Michael, enjoy the married life!
If there is any two people in the world who could outshine the bright city lights of Los Angeles, it’s Stacey and Justin. This beautiful couple held their wedding at the iconic Los Angeles Athletic Club where they made their presence from the ballroom to the LA skyline on the rooftop. The most awesome part of their day for us had to be their same day edit (SDE) produced by our videography team. It was our first official SDE, but definitely not our last. The venue and coordinator, Nam Lam from Modern LA weddings, was so versatile and beautiful that along with our couple’s natural good looks, we couldn’t have gotten anything but perfect shots. We’re most lucky to have Stacey and Justin be our couple for this past weekend, as their energy from the start of their morning to their dance routine after their grand entrance has set the bar high! Thank you two for having us out, Glenn, Dominique, Thien, and I couldn’t have asked for a better gathering this week!

My team and I were very lucky to have been able to be at Stephanie and Neil’s wedding the past week. We, along with all the family and friends gathered together, got to see two people very in love with each other finally get married! There was a rollercoaster of emotions throughout the entire day, from everyone relaxing in the morning, to seeing Steph and Neil kiss for the first time as a married couple, the whole team and I were fortunate and happy to personally be witnesses as well as their videographers. Here’s their highlight video filled with the best parts of their day; I hope you all enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting it together. Thanks so much for having us out Stephanie and Neil, enjoy your married life together!
Both our photography and videography team headed back to the ever so beautiful Santiago Canyon Mansion for Brittany and Lee’s wedding. With good music from beginning to end, it was like a party for us as much as it was for them. If there’s one thing I could say about their wedding day it’s that it was constantly full of surprises, and that’s absolutely what we love capturing. We’ve got more pictures coming your way so don’t worry, this isn’t the last that you’ll see of Brittany and Lee!
Going into Zack and Jodie’s wedding, you’d think that you had just accidentally walked into a Sanrio store with all of the Hello Kitty decor around. By the end of the night, it felt like we had just lived through a real life live action film of Hello Kitty and Dear Daniel’s wedding. Everything from getting ready to the reception took place in the ballroom at The Hills Hotel, where the bridal party braved the heat and Zack’s younger brother shed some tears. It was a pleasure for our team to finally see Zack and Jodie take a break from school and work to party the night away last week. Thanks for inviting us out you two, we hope you didn’t sweat too much on your honeymoon, and enjoy the video!
Tears and laughter filled the crowd during Carissa Rae and Michael’s vows to each other last week. Maybe that’s what you get when you put two artistic people together, maybe that’s what you get when you put two people who are in love with one another as much as they are together. In one day, I was personally able to witness that there are indeed two people out there in the world who fit so perfectly together. As they day progressed and we moved from the getting ready part of the day, to the ceremony, to the reception, I couldn’t help but feel as if I were in the show “How I Met Your Mother”. Everyone that I had encountered, friends, family, and neighbors, had something to tell me about them, and I followed their story to where they are now. All that running around in a grocery store paid off Michael! Come and relive their special day with us one more time through this video!

Shayna and Bryan showed us a good time this weekend, entertaining us with classic movie references in the morning and stories of how they met in the evening. They’re a couple with a story that involves multiple friends and many years, and we had a good time reliving all the memories on Sunday! We can’t say anything but good things about these two, as they truly do embody the term “perfect for each other”.
And as our passion for cinema is soon turning into a service that we here at Justin Element Photography offer, we wanted to give you all a sneak peek of what to expect
