Jocely + Kevin || The Proposal || Pasadena, CA

Shooting proposals is always fun. The planning, the espionage, the anticipation — all of it culminating in one of the sweetest, purest moments in a person’s life. I got the chance to film Kevin’s proposal to Jocely this past Saturday night, and it was so heartwarming watching him, his friends, and his family prep his and Jocely’s home for the surprise. Congratulations on taking the next big step toward the rest of your life guys! Hope you love your film:D

Mai-Chi + Peter || Wedding Highlight Film || 32 North, San Diego

Love this wedding and couple and as I’m sitting down to write this blog post, I can’t help but feel like anything I write won’t be able to do the day justice. I could gush about Mai Chi and Peter’s beautiful venue and vows and wedding details. I could cry remembering their amazing dinner spread and how I may never eat as good a wedding meal again. I could thank them for making our jobs so easy and always being nothing but kind and warm towards us and the team. But in the end, I really think you guys would be better served watching the highlight film. Tried a couple new techniques again, hope you all like what you see:)

Alyson + Cristian || Wedding Highlight Film || Wedgewood, San Clemente

It’s our first wedding of 2018 and I couldn’t have asked for a better one to kick off the new year. Cristian and Alyson made their beautiful families just a little bit bigger last weekend at the Wedgewood in San Clemente, and the day was absolutely gorgeous. Congrats you guys, and thanks for letting us be part of your special day!

Meryl + Randy || Wedding Highlight Film || Richard Nixon Library, Yorba Linda

The team had the pleasure to celebrate Meryl and Randy’s wedding at the gorgeous Nixon library last November, and we’re so excited to finally be able to share their highlight film. Randy has one of the brightest, most ready smiles we’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting, and seeing him gush over Meryl was incredibly heartwarming. Their bridal party was also super welcoming to us and made our jobs easy. Congrats you guys, and hope you love your film!

2017 JustinElement Productions – Wedding Reel

Not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit putting this reel together. When you’re in the middle of the wedding season, it’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day process, coordinating your gear and shooters, making sure you’re getting all the shots you need, backing up all the files right away so not a single moment is missed. Getting to look back at it all, though, is a nice reminder of why we do what we do. I can’t say thank you enough to all the couples who trusted the JEP team to capture the most important days in their lives, and allowed us to be a part of their families, even if only for a few hours.

Thank you to the coordinators, venues, and fellow vendors who gave us beautiful subjects to shoot.

Thank you also to the JEP videography team, whose incredible talent is clearly evident here, and whose hard work and dedication cannot be overstated.

And finally, thank you to Justin, for giving me the opportunity to play for work, and for being the best guide/mentor/best friend anyone can ask for.

Julieann + Philip || Wedding Highlight Film || Rancho Los Lomas, Silverado

We got the chance to shoot at the gorgeous Rancho Los Lomas estate for Julieann and Philip’s wedding last month. The entire day was a dream, and the perfect wedding to end our season with. From the couple’s heartfelt vows, shared during their first look, to the violinists playing the Game of Thrones theme during cocktail hour, and everything in between, there was plenty to love about their beautiful day. Thank you Julieann and Philip for letting us share in your special day, and hope you guys love your highlight!

Frances + Sheldon || Wedding Highlight Film || The Modern, Long Beach

It’s always a little bit challenging shooting your business partner’s friends — the pressure to do well is on a whole ‘nother level haha. Luckily, not only did my team really outdo themselves this time around, the venues were gorgeous, and Franny and Sheldon and their whole bridal party were just the best models. As an added bonus, the couple was kind enough to choose a wedding song I had never edited to before and happen to personally love,

Congratulations you guys, hope you love your film!!

Jackie + Joel || Wedding Highlight Film || Vellano Country Club, Chino Hills

Ahh, finally! We’re racing to the end of the year and I’m stoked to be share another video with you all! This one was a nice little reunion as we shot the Matron of Honor’s wedding a couple years back. We also had a fun time up in the train museum for Jackie and Joel’s engagement earlier this year. Jackie is a Moonie after my own heart, and I cannot explain how excited I was to see all her Sailor Moon themed decor and props for us to use. The two of them are also total sweethearts, and I hope you love their film~

Rosie + Alfred || Wedding Highlight Film || Knowlwood Country Club, Granada Hills

I’m excited to finally be able to share Rosie and Alfred’s wedding highlight film! We’re finishing up the season and honestly I’m feeling a little bit sad knowing my weekends won’t be filled with good times and awesome couples. But getting to relive our couple’s special days while editing definitely helps. Rosie and Alfred’s had a beautiful ceremony and reception at the Knowlwood Country Club in Granada Hills a few weeks back, topped off with some of the funnest glow stick-fueled dancing at the end of the night. There’s that to look forward to and more in this highlight. Congrats Rosie and Api, and hope you guys love your film!

Lucia + Will || Wedding Highlight Film || The Villa, Westminster

I absolutely love this couple and I’m so stoked to be able to share their highlight film. Fellow foodies and some of the sweetest people we’ve ever had the pleasure to work with, Lucia and Will have been totally awesome to us ever since Justin and I shot their engagement in San Diego earlier this year. Justin was ill that day and although he powered through the shoot, they still took the time to buy him medicine at the grocery. For their wedding day, they were no less sweet — as you can see in the video, all of Lucia’s bridesmaids cried because she wrote them personalized letters along with their gifts in the morning. Anywho! I’ll let the video speak for itself, but hope you guys love it!

June + Josh || Wedding Highlight Film || San Clemente Historic College, San Clemente

The team had the chance to shoot June and Josh’s super chill wedding in San Clemente a few weeks back. There were plenty of awesome little details throughout their day that made their starry Polynesian night-themed wedding extra special — from their custom monogrammed couples’ jackets, to their “moon and back” calligraphy cake topper. The bridal party was also super fun to work with, making this day by far one of our funnest, smoothest sailing of the season.

Congratulations again guys, please enjoy your film!

Chiell Ann + Nick || Wedding Highlight Film || Neuehouse, Hollywood

I’m so excited to finally be able to share Chiell and Nick’s finished highlight film with you guys. Ever since we shot our city-chic engagement with them in Tokyo this past April, Chiell and Nick have cemented themselves as one of our coolest, most stylish couples, and you’ll definitely see it throughout their video. We also had the pleasure of shooting at Neuehouse in Hollywood, a brand new wedding venue that used to be some kind of film studio. The result? Epic lighting, badass backdrops, and by far one of my favorite videos of the year.

Congratulations on your one month and hope you guys love your film!!

Let + Mike || Wedding Highlight Film || The Centre At Sycamore Plaza, Lakewood

We had the pleasure of shooting Let and Mike’s wedding a couple of weeks ago at the Centre in Lakewood. Although there was plenty of love to go around, I think my favorite parts of the day were the subtly dorky moments — like Let and her brother doing finger guns at each other when he dropped off Mike’s present. Or Let finishing reading Mike’s very sweet, heartfelt letter to her, and ending it by coaxing everyone in the bridal room to go “awwww.” All in all it was a beautiful wedding day, and I hope you guys enjoy your highlight film!

Ami + Ericson || Wedding Highlight Film || Greystone Mansion, Beverly Hills

The team and I the amazing opportunity to shoot at Greystone Manor a couple of weeks ago for Ami and Ericson’s wedding, and it was probably one of the swankiest events we’ve ever worked. From matching couple’s Louboutins, to Spectacles and Tiffany’s champagne flutes for the bridal party, to bringing in their own white grand piano, the couple spared no expense to have the wedding of their dreams. Not to mention Ami writing her very own hilarious vow song to Ericson. All in all, a pretty memorable day. Hope you guys like the video!
