Soshanna + Tab || Artistic Feature Film || Costa Mesa

I said it before, I will say it again: my #1 goal in life is to be half as cool as this couple. She’s a genius model/anime nerd, he’s a rockstar hair stylist. They rode into their reception on the back of a classic red Chevy El Camino. Their caterers were In-N-Out.

There’s more I could say, but you really would be better off just watching this video. It’ll be the best way to spend the next 13 minutes of your life, promise.:)

Jeanna + Jay || Wedding Highlight Film || Pelican Hill Resort, Newport Beach

We had a chance to shoot one of our most beautiful weddings out at the Pelican Hills resort in Newport Beach for Jeanna and Jay a few weeks back. From Jay’s awesome baby blue brocade suit to the hanging cake display, everything about the wedding went so above and beyond. We were also lucky enough to have our drone pilot fly out and really capture the full scope of the amazing venue. All in all, this film is definitely one worth seeing, hope you guys love it!

Nika + Tucker || Wedding Highlight Film || Grand Tradition, Fallbrook, CA

This one’s pretty near and dear to my heart. I’ve known Veronica since we were 9 and everyone still called her Veronica rather than her preferred current nickname Nika — and she’s been one of my best friends every since. Always the “pretty one” of our group, she’s also always been incredibly outgoing, driven, and kind. We literally could not go anywhere during college without at least one person knowing her. And Tucker has always been the perfect complement to her. There’s so much more I could say, but the video really speaks for itself. These two really belong together. Hope you guys see it too!

Michelle + Franco || Wedding Highlight Film || Eagle’s Nest, Cypress, CA

I love this couple so so much you guys. They’re huge geeks, super sweet, and their first dance was to the Yuri on Ice theme song. No joke, there was at least like 5 seconds when I stopped recording and was just singing and waving my arms along to the song. I am only a little bit sorry for this.

Really though, this wedding was just so much fun to shoot and I really hope you all enjoy the film!

Sara + Nathan || Wedding Highlight Film || The Estate on Second, Santa Ana

We spent our first wedding of the year at the new Estate on Second venue in Downtown Santa Ana. Sara and Nathan and their parents and their whole bridal party were super adorable, just good vibes and laughter the whole day through. We also got lots of awesome sound bytes at this one, so I hope you guys enjoy it!

Ashley + John || Save the Date || Old Town Sacramento, CA

Justin and I went up to Sacramento back in December to hang out with these dorks. Haha I kid, but really, Ashley and John were such a fun couple and we had a blast bearing the brutal Norcal cold and running around Old Town. Plus they were nice enough to bring us out to some of the best AYCE shabu I’ve ever had.

I tried a couple of new techniques for this Save the Date film, so I hope you guys like it!

Thank you guys so much for your hospitality, and I’m looking forward to seeing you in September!:)

Jessica + Michael || Wedding Film || Santa Monica, CA

2016 had a few bright spots, including working some really awesome couples like Jessica and Michael. Disney fans after my own heart, these two met working in the park and included their love of Disney all throughout their wedding, from their homemade fairytale book backdrop to their very own carousel at Santa Monica Pier.

Here’s the full version of their film, please enjoy their perfect fairy tale wedding!

Dani + Andy || Wedding Highlight Film || Oak Creek Golf Club, Irvine, CA

And here we are folks, the last wedding of 2016! Dani and Andy were super sweet and had one of the nicest bridal parties we’ve ever worked with. Dani’s dad even helped us set the dress up with his own handy ladder. We were also lucky enough to grab about half an hour of beautiful sunlight amid the clouds to shoot the bride and bridesmaids and establishing shots of the lovely golf course in the morning. Thanks Dani and Andy for trusting us to capture your special day and I hope you guys love your film!

Jaemee + Ejay || Wedding Highlight Film || Padua Hills Theatre, Claremont, CA

Funny story about this one, we actually went mini-viral thanks to our super hip shooter Darrell Ann and our amazingly down bridal party, who were one of the first to do a wedding mannequin challenge. (Proof here: http://www.popsugar.com/love/Mannequin-Challenge-Wedding-42676831) It also happened to be one of the funnest and prettiest weddings we’ve shot this year, so I hope you guys enjoy it too:)

Tiffany + Derrick || Wedding Highlight Film || Metropol Banquet Hall, Glendale, CA

Okay so I’ve probably said it before, but seriously, Tiffany and Derrick had the best. vows. EVER. Minus a few not insignificant technical difficulties, this video was such a blast to shoot and edit. Kicking off with Chinese door games, followed by an awesome photo session in downtown Los Angeles, and ending with an adorable blindfold game in which Derrick had to identify his bride based solely on the feel of her hands, this wedding was definitely on the favorites of the year. Hope you guys like it too. Enjoy!

Rhea + Alex || Wedding Highlight Film || Etiwanda Gardens, Etiwanda, CA

Got another cute one for you guys. Rhea and Alex’s vows were some of the most aw-worthy I’ve heard in a while, and their whole day was filled with so much sweetness and sentimentality, from gift exchanges in the morning to heartfelt speeches at the reception. Finally, to top off a perfect day, when we were leaving, Rhea’s mom actually ran up to me to give me a hug and say thanks. All in all, I’m grateful to have gotten the chance to capture this amazing couple’s day and I hope you guys enjoy their film!

Jasmine + Jacob || Wedding Highlight Film || Los Verdes Golf Course, Rancho Palos Verdes

There’s plenty of pretty footage to be found in this wedding film, although that’s thanks in large part to our beautiful venues throughout the day and our even more amazing couple. Jasmine and Jacob had a small and intimate bridal party which made shooting their photo session one of the easiest we’ve ever done. We got to fly our drone over the cliffs of Palos Verdes, and even if we didn’t have the most time to shoot, the natural beauty of the place made our jobs an absolute dream come true. Thanks again for bringing us out to celebrate the day with you, and hope you guys love your film!

Andrea + Wilfred || Wedding Highlight Film || Calamigos Ranch, Malibu

Calamigos Ranch is one of our favorite wedding spots. This time around though we got to shoot it with our drone and really take advantage of the gorgeous weather and beautiful scenery. On top of that, Andrea and Wilfred were perfect for our cameras and we couldn’t have asked for a better day to capture. There was so much more footage we didn’t get to include in the highlight including performances from the bride and mother of the bride. We hope you enjoyed it just as much as we did and hopefully we can bring you much more Calamigos weddings. Please enjoy!

Channary + Chris || Artistic Wedding Feature Film || Palos Verdes, CA

These two came into our lives at the wedding of Lauren and Mike and I couldn’t forget them. They were the best dancers on the floor that night and totally rocked it for our wedding film and photos. So I could only expect the party to be just as crazy at their wedding. Channary and Chris delivered and have been such a good couple to us. I loved their engagement photos, their wedding photos, and here’s to this final film, their artistic feature film. Hope you love it! Please enjoy!
