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!

Channary + Chris || Wedding Highlight Film || South Coast Botanic Garden, Palos Verdes, CA

We returned to one of our long time favorite songs for Channary and Chris’s highlight film — No Matter Where You Are by the always amazing Us The Duo. One of the fun things about reusing old songs is going back and seeing all the different ways you’ve interpreted the music, how the mood and timing and effects can change so much just because you’re hearing the music with different ears.

Discerning eyes may remember Channary and Chris’s awesome dance solo at Lauren and Mike’s wedding a little over a year ago (https://vimeo.com/139484178 around 2:30), and we were super stoked to reunite with them this time around. Congratulations again Mr. and Mrs. Boltz, hope you guys love your film!

Jackie + Sam || Wedding Highlight Film || Descanso Gardens, La Canada Flintridge, CA

Jackie and Sam had a beautiful garden wedding about a month ago out in La Cañada. More than just the beauty though, I think my favorite part was all the meaningfulness and sentimentality that went into curating each part of their day. From the sweet slideshow of Jackie and Sam’s relationship that played at Jackie’s house in the morning, to the ladybug attached to the bouquet to represent Jackie’s father, to the special book excerpts and blessings performed at the ceremony — everything about this wedding was incredibly sweet and absolutely amazing. Thanks again to the newlywed Glendons for inviting us to capture your special day, hope you love your film.:)

Gina + Steve || Surprise Same Day Edit Highlight Film || The Loft on Pine, Long Beach, CA

Surprise same day edits are a mission, you have to disappear discreetly halfway through the wedding day, and if the venue doesn’t have a designated hiding spot, you’re stuck hiding with the caterers and ducking behind pillars, all while cutting together the best possible video you can in under six hours. Luckily, all the subterfuge paid off, and Gina and Steve wrapped their beautiful wedding last night none the wiser.;)

H/T to my amazing team for handling the day without me yesterday, and thanks to some of our favorite coordinators, Viv and Pam from Love Anne Joy, for hiring us to capture your friends’ awesome day.

Please enjoy our last SDE of the year:D

Linda + Dennis || Wedding Highlight Film || Venue by Three Petals, Huntington Beach

Linda and Dennis’s wedding was absolutely gorgeous, a little bit modern, a little bit fairy tale, from the bridesmaids’ wispy full length tulle skirts, to the ever beautiful St. Vincent De Paul church, to the couple’s giant balloon arrangement, to the nitrogen a la minute ice cream at the reception. This one feels a lot more epic than usual, thanks in large part to the always expert gimbal work by our own Ilja Maran. The beautiful couple and venues don’t hurt either;)Hope you guys love it!

Salina + Brian || Wedding Highlight Film || Old Ranch, Seal Beach

This one is a little special to me since I met Salina way back in high school. As I was working with Dom putting this together, I was able to relive their day and see all the old friends from my days in Long Beach. Salina and Brian really put together a beautiful day and knew how to celebrate. They had one of the best dance floors I’ve seen and you can see it in the end of this film, hope you guys love it as much as I do. Congrats Salina and Brian! Please enjoy!

Linda + Ty || Artistic Wedding Film || Avenue of the Arts

There’s little I can write here about Linda and Ty that could truly encompass how awesome clients they were. Sweet, kind of ador(k)able, absolutely in love with our work — they were pretty much the best clients you could ask for. Their wedding was a dream to shoot as well. Ty built his own door for the first look for crying out loud! And that wasn’t even the best part, which came when Linda surprised her new husband with the most amazing song and voice I have ever had the pleasure of witnessing.

All in all, you’re in for a treat watching this one. Don’t take my word for it, just click and see for yourself.:)

Janice + Pierre || Wedding Highlight Film || Via del Sol d’Oro

Today’s lovely wedding film is brought to you by one beautiful former bridesmaid of ours Janice, a newfound bout of inspiration, and one gorgeous casa out in Sierra Madre. The running mantra around these parts lately has been “storytelling” — piecing together not just beautiful images, but beautiful images that connect to each other and help recreate the whole sense of the wedding day. For Janice and Pierre’s wedding, this translated to lots and lots of walking shots:PHaha, well that, and a lot of other pretty transitions too. In any case, I’m super excited to share this one, hope you guys like it too. Cheers:)

Nallely + Victor || Wedding Highlight Film || Metropol

When you think of a close-knit group of family and friends during a wedding, you think of these two. Nallely and Victor had such an awesome wedding and we as a team had a lot of fun capturing all the moments that happened. From a heart-felt ceremony to a crazy, amazing party all night, it couldn’t have been more picture- perfect (See what I did there??) for my team and I. Click the video and check the magic out!

Monica + John || Artistic Wedding Feature || Crestmore Manor

The nice thing about editing multiple videos for the same couple is getting to relive their wedding over and over again, and that’s especially true for Monica and John. Their vows were amazing, their venues were beautiful, their bridal party was hilarious and super friendly. So here it is Mr. and Mrs. Managuan, the final of your three films. Thank you again for being so welcoming and giving us the chance to document your amazing day. Congratulations!

Lori + Tony || Extended Artistic Feature Film || Diamond Bar Center

Here we are nearing the end of the year and I can look back at all our brides and grooms and be happy with all the work we’ve done. Lori and Tony’s wedding was one of the ones to remember. They brought in their own heart and soul to the Diamond Bar Center from the boba station to their selfie print station and all their really beautiful, unique decor. I have to admit this was one of the coolest, most entertaining, funnest (who cares if that’s not a word!) wedding we’ve had and you can see when you watch this film and all the wedding details. I’m looking to dinners and parties and babies and everything in the future with these two. Please enjoy!

Lindsey + Joe || Artistic Feature Film || San Juan Capistrano, CA

Lindsey and Joe’s was a fairy tale wedding in the backyard of the gorgeous Sinatra estate in San Juan Capistrano. I’m so glad to be finally getting the chance to share this feature film with you all. Keep an eye out for gorgeous flower arrangements, the cutest triplet dachshunds you’ve ever seen, a Lance Bass cardboard cut-out (no joke), and some of the best speeches and vows I’ve ever heard. Thanks again Lindsey and Joe for inviting us to share in your awesomeness. Hope you guys love your film. Cheers!
