Ashley + John || Wedding Highlight Film || Coco Palms, Pomona, CA

Loved getting to reunite with Ashley and John for their wedding a couple of weeks ago! Late last year, Justin and I traveled up to Sacramento to shoot Ashley and John’s Save the Date, wandered around Old Town in the rain, had some of the best all you can eat, all you can drink shabu shabby ever. This time around, the team whole team spent probably our hottest wedding day of the year so far with their super fun bridal party. Congrats again you guys, thanks for letting us capture your special day, and hope you love your film!

Shanna + Sam || Same Day Edit Highlight Film || Grand Island Mansion, Walnut Grove

We’re currently in the airport waiting to fly back home from last night’s same day edit for Shanna and Sam. This trip up to Sacramento was definitely a good way to start our crazy end of the year push — 33 weddings in the next 3 months. Not only was the couple super chill, but the venue was also probably the prettiest we’ve shot at ever — a haunted-ish mansion out in Walnut Grove. No joke guys, I got to edit in a private home movie theatre all day. That’s the dream haha.

Anywho! Thanks to Shanna and Sam for letting us party it up with you guys and to the team for killing it once again. Especially Justin for hijacking a projector at the end of the night and basically just making the day run smoothly.

Please enjoy!

Yuri + Jae || Wedding Highlight Film || First Congregational Church, Los Angeles, CA

The team had an amazing time shooting Yuri and Jae’s gorgeous church wedding a couple weeks back. It’s always fun catching up with Kaba people and Yuri and Jae have just such awesome style, it made our jobs super easy. I really want to let this video speak for itself, but thanks always to my team for killing it. And be on the look out for the prettiest church ever, a La La Land inspired first dance, and of course, one of the cutest couples we’ve ever had the pleasure to shoot. Enjoy!

Charlene + Mike || Wedding Hightlight Film || Riviera Mansion, Santa Barbara, CA

We traveled up to a gorgeous wedding in Santa Barbara a couple of weekends ago for Charlene and Mike. It was definitely one of the funnest weddings of the year, with lightsaber groomsmen gifts, Legend of Zelda-themed cake toppers, and of course, the amazing bride and groom, who were all derps and giggles the whole day through, we fit right in. Congrats Charlie and Mike, and thanks for inviting us to celebrate with you!

Michelle + Frederick || Wedding Highlight Film || Hotel Maya, Long Beach CA

Visited one of our old favorites, the Hotel Maya in Long Beach, for Michelle and Frederick’s wedding a couple weekends ago. It’s always fun and a bit of a challenge going to an old familiar place and finding ways to make it feel new and interesting with the new filming technique you’ve picked up since the last time you were there. Luckily Michelle and Frederick and their whole bridal party were super chill and made our jobs easy. Hope you guys love your film!

Margie + John || Wedding Highlight Film || Hyatt Regency, Huntington Beach

This wedding was a fun little reunion as Margie and John were one of the two couples Justin and I shot engagements for in Japan. And just like Japan, Margie and John were super chill throughout the day and a pleasure to be around — up until the end of reception when Margie made it her personal mission to make sure our photo guys were drunk AF haha. Luckily I was DD and managed to escape but it was still definitely a night to remember. Congrats guys, and hope you love your film:)

Ivy + Evan || Same Day Edit Highlight Film || Westminster, CA

Two of my high school best friends tied the knot last Saturday and I was able to watch from the front row seat as one of his groomsmen. I didn’t get to miss a beat either since one of the best gifts you can give a photographer is to let him be the one to shoot and film your wedding. Luckily I was given the task for my team to do both whilst I enjoy their wedding. So every time my trigger finger itched just a little bit, I got up and snapped some shots of their first dance, or their photo sesh, but also got to stand up there next to them during their ceremony. I seriously have to give it to my team for putting together such a beautiful day photographically and Dominique as usual for creating this spectacular same day edit video in under 10 hours. She got a little of everyone in it too and I loved it. Hope you do too! Please enjoy.

Claire + Michael || Extended Highlight Feature Film || Hilton Irvine, CA

It’s been a while since we’ve done an extended highlight, but Claire and Michael gave us plenty of material to work with. High school sweethearts, their speeches and vows brought us back to how they met with Claire asking to borrow a piece of paper. Their officiant also had one of the better sermons I’ve heard, reminding the couple that the promises they made that day they’d have to hold to and keep for the rest of their lives. All awesome content for a wedding editor to work with. Hope you guys like it too!

Mary Grace + Patrick || Wedding Highlight Film || Smog Shoppe, Culver City

Avengers Funkos, Soul Train lines, mismatched bridesmaids dresses — there was so much to love about Mary Grace and Patrick’s wedding a couple weeks back. Not only were the decor and vibe just so effortlessly cool (ex: their seating chart was a tri fold poster board), the couple themselves were also just super sweet and geeky. Lowkey, this was kind of my dream wedding. Check out the video below and I’m sure you can see why:)

Clarizcel + Reymund || Wedding Highlight Film || Marriott Waterfront, San Francisco

I don’t even know where to start with this one, except to say I’m especially proud of it, and the people in it are very near and dear to my heart. Clarizcel was one of the first people in the dance community to ever make me feel welcome, and that was even before I was officially part of the Kaba Modern family. And to have the opportunity to shoot her wedding now was such an amazing honor. There was plenty to love about the shoot day, from the new location of San Francisco, to playing with new shooting techniques, to the gorgeous church, and, last but not by any definition least, the incredible surprise dance performances both the bride and groom planned for each other (also linked below). All in all, an absolute dream wedding. Congratulations Clarizcel and Rey and thanks again for letting us be a part of your big day! <3

Claire + Michael || Wedding Highlight Film || Hilton Irvine

Did something super experimental this time around, gotta keep things fresh yanno ;P Anywho! Claire and Michael were total sweethearts at their wedding a few weeks back and by the end of the night, Michael and our JEP boys were super lovey dovey — it was cute. It was also really nice to catch up with some of our previous couples, Jessica and David and Thu Anh and Bryan, who were guests at this wedding. All in all, another one for the books! Hope you guys like it:)

Christina + Michael || Wedding Highlight Film || Hilton, Universal City

We ventured up to Studio City a couple weeks back to shoot Christina and Michael’s beautiful wedding at the Hilton Universal. Though there was plenty to love about the wedding day, the best part by far was the vows — dorky, heartfelt, definitely aw-worthy. There’s so much more I wish I could have fit into the highlight but here’s just a small preview for now. Hope you guys like it!

Lauren + Kevin || Wedding Highlight Film || Maravilla Gardens, Camarillo, CA

The team got the chance to shoot this gorgeous wedding out in Camarillo a couple of weeks ago — and, funnily enough, be reunited with the bride at our latest wedding this past weekend. From the beginning of the day there was plenty for me to gush about, from the color scheme of the bridesmaid’s bouquets to the swing set behind the estate that allowed us to take some pretty gorgeous romantics if I do say so myself. Please enjoy!
