Shelbie + Justin || Wedding Highlight Film || The Loft on Pine, Long Beach

We kicked off the 2016 season with the wonderful Shelbie and Justin at one of our favorite venues, The Loft on Pine in Long Beach. One of the coolest things about this wedding was hearing the amazing story of how they got together — how they were college sweethearts who would go on to move all over the country, maintaining their relationship through texts and Skype calls before eventually winding up — surprise! — married four years later. Congratulations Shelbie and Justin on finally getting here, and thanks for allowing us to share in the magic.:)

Elana + Raffi || Wedding Highlight Film || Palisades, CA

A couple of weeks back, the JE team had the undeniable pleasure of closing out 2015 with Elana and Raffi, and all I can really say about it is: funnest. wedding. ever. I can honestly say I’ve never seen so much singing and dancing. That, coupled with their heartfelt vows and of course, tons of meaningful Jewish traditions, you really couldn’t help but feel feelings. Just, all of the feelings. So many feelings.

So, thank you Elana and Raffi for inviting us into your hysterical, dorky, and above all, loving world, and hope you guys enjoy your highlight film.:)

Ivonne + Charles || Wedding Highlight Film || Brandview Ballroom, Glendale

It’s crazy to think 2016 is just a few days away, but I’m so glad we got to finish up our second to the last wedding year with Ivonne and Charles. From the beginning of the day to end, everything was just filled with laughs and happy tears, #nouglycrying handkerchiefs and heartfelt gift exchanges. You’ll be hard pressed not to tear up at least a little bit, trust. Please enjoy their highlight!

Trinity + Nick || Wedding Highlight Film || Calamigos Ranch, Malibu

We’re rounding out the end of the year, folks, and to be honest, I can’t believe it’s December already. Earlier this week, I took the time to watch some of my older event highlights, and it’s insane seeing how much our style has grown and changed over the course of the past 12 months. And I think Trinity and Nick’s gorgeous wedding at Calamigos Ranch is a perfect demonstration of that.

This one’s a personal favorite of mine, so I hope you all enjoy it too. Cheers!

Jessica + David || Same Day Edit Highlight Film || Dorothy Chandler Music Hall, Los Angeles

Helped pull off the loveliest little surprise at Jessica and David’s wedding this past Saturday, with our very first surprise Same Day Edit! It was a couple of weeks ago that David decided to add it on as a gift to Jess, and I have to admit I was a little scared at first. How on earth could I manage to edit without suspiciously just disappearing from the day? Thankfully, despite a few close calls, the team did an amazing job covering for me and everything went off without a hitch. Thank you Jessica and David for inviting us to share the day with you again, and hope you guys love this!

Thu Anh + Bryan || Wedding Highlight Film || Westminster, CA

It seems like just yesterday we were meeting Thu Anh and Bryan for the first time and chatting about their wedding over Korean BBQ. It’s been a good few months since then, but I’m happy to finally be able to share their highlight film. Inside you’ll find a couple new toys (gimbals, ftw), a beautiful church, and of course, one heck of a party. Enjoy!

Katie + Ronnie || Wedding Highlight Film || Doubletree, Anaheim

I first met Katie and Ronnie assisting Justin on their engagement shoot a few months back, and from that first meeting, it quickly became apparent that they were my kind of people. Easygoing, quick to laugh, and huge fans of food and Cirque du Soleil. I was sold. Funny story, at their wedding, we were actually lucky enough to run into some promoters for the new Cirque show Kurios, and later that month went on a tripquadruple-something date to see it at the OC Fairgrounds. Anyway, I digress. The point is that this couple is amazing and it’s been a pleasure getting to know them and working on their highlight film. Hope you guys it!

Angel + Earvin || Wedding Highlight Film || Hotel Maya, Long Beach

When we first met Angel and Earvin, it soon became abundantly clear they were a special class of people. The only way I can describe it is that they are sincerely and heartwarmingly nice. Throughout their wedding day, Earvin kept offering us water and making sure the team and I were okay. They were also totally down to let us experiment with posing and techniques that we’d never tried before and that other people might even be skeptical about. All in all, I can’t express my gratitude to this couple enough for letting us capture their big day. Hope you guys enjoy your film.

Nice! Very nice! Am boarding now have to go

Brenda + Colin || Wedding Highlight Film || The Victorian, Santa Monica

To be honest, I don’t even know where to begin with these two. From the very beginning, Brenda and Colin have been the most amazing couple — naturals at posing, super down to try new things, and nerds after my own heart. The team pulled out all the stops for this one, so be on the look out for epic timelapses, slow mo, soft focus, and even a couple Doctor Who-themed Easter eggs. Enjoy.:)

Cheryl + Nick || Same Day Edit Highlight Film || Crowne Plaza, Foster City

It’s been less than six hours since we got home from this weekend’s Bay Area SDE, but I’m already feeling nostalgic. I first met Cheryl and Nick back in January, and over the course of the past year, I’ve had the pleasure of learning just how cool they are as a couple. First of all, they’re huge nerds (#makorra ftw). Second, their story is actually super inspirational, including being together since college and working through a long distance relationship for several years. And lastly, they’re some of the sweetest, most genuinely in love people I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting. Thanks again for inviting us to share your big day with you. Cheryl and Nick at last indeed.:)

Dom, this is the BEST! So many feels. Thank you for capturing it so beautifully. This was one of the best same day edits we’ve ever seen! (Might be a little biased though lol). Thank you so much!

Jenine + Api || Wedding Highlight Film || Diamond Bar Center

Here it is, my first ever “Blast from the Past” wedding. A couple of weeks ago, I was reunited with fellow St. Pius V elementary school alum Jenine and her new husband Api for their wedding celebration at the gorgeous Diamond Bar Center. Truth be told, this wedding was an absolute trip. From their adorably cheesy first look to Api’s amazing surprise garter dance, everything about this day was just a joy to experience and shoot. Hope you guys enjoy it too.

Tiffany + Andy || Wedding Highlight Film || Pasadena, CA

When it comes to putting together a wedding video, the best gift a client can give you is a good song. No matter how happy or emotional the actual day is, if the music I’m cutting to is lackluster, we’re gonna have a bad time. Luckily, Tiffany and Andy were totally open to suggestions, and the result is the super-upbeat, super-danceable, super-’80s (-ish) throwback you see below. Between the music, their amazingly goofy wedding party, and their beautifully choreographed first dance, trust me, you won’t be able to help but smile and dance along.

That’s awesome Tiff!! What a beautiful bride you are, and such a lovely wedding! Congrats to you both!

Marycel + Rich || Wedding Highlight Film || Doubletree, Monrovia

“I did then, I do now, I will always.” A little while back, Marycel and Rich invited the photo and video team to be a part of their renewal church wedding out in Pasadena. From the very beginning of the day, everything felt very “complete,” I guess you could say. Here was a couple who’d been waiting for this day forever, and you could just feel their happiness and relief that their wedding had finally arrived. By the end of the day, it felt as though we had been longtime friends, and I’m so excited to finally share their wedding film. Inside you’ll find tearjerking card readings, beautiful details, and the cutest darn little girls you ever did see. Enjoy.

Linda + Bao || Same Day Wedding Highlight Film || The London Hotel, Hollywood

Linda and Bao got married on the gorgeous rooftop of the London Hotel in West Hollywood, and to be completely honest, I feel like I should just let this video speak for itself. What to expect: a gorgeous custom-made wedding dress, an adorable balloon-based first look, beautiful string lights, and of course, the amazing, amazing couple. And a same day edit all put together in under 8 hours, no less. Not too shabby;)Enjoy!
