Kim + Johnny || Same Day Highlight Film || The Wyndham Hotel, Anaheim

Hey guys, we just wrapped up our first double weekend in a long while, which also happened to start with our first Same Day Edit in a long while for the wonderful Kim and Johnny. This day was all hugs and laughs from the beginning, from the couple offering their parents fried chicken as a tea ceremony gift, to them high-fiving the crowd through their grand entrance at the reception. All in all the day was amazing, and I couldn’t be happier with my team for capturing it all. Hope you guys enjoy!

Lauren + Mike || Wedding Highlight Film || Mt. Palomar Winery

Full disclosure: I’ve been stoked to share this video for a while. It’s not just that Lauren and Mike were an amazing couple, so fun and easy to work with. It’s not just that Mt. Palomar Winery was a beautiful venue, despite it being our hottest wedding of the year. It’s not even that their DJ mixed some of the sickest beats I’d ever heard at a wedding, despite being an unassuming, middle aged British man. It’s that all of these things and more just happened to fall into place for this film, and I couldn’t be happier with the end result. I really hope you guys love it.

Hikari + Jeff || Wedding Highlight Film || Twin Oaks House & Gardens

With that being said, I promise to you, to annoy you, to make you mad, to upset you, to challenge you, but at the same time, I promise to make you laugh, I promise to give you the moments that take your breath away… and walk beside you through whatever our lives bring, forever and always.

How many ways can you vow your life to the person you love? I’ve heard hundreds of vows and up till now I’ve never heard my groom say anything more real, honest, and beautiful, and I hope that this film moves you to tears with all the feels that Jeff and Hikari have had. Hope you enjoy their journey.

Congratulations!

Hikari + Jeff Wedding Special Performance || Featuring Kaba Modern and Team Millennia Alum

I was able to see a little bit of history while Hikari and Jeff’s friends performed some of their favorite sets from their competitive days in Kaba Modern and Team Millenia. They even surprised each other by dancing in each other’s sets and setting the bar for all future dancer-couple’s weddings we’ll be seeing. Hope you enjoy this special performance and thanks for letting us be a part of it!

Christine + Howard || Wedding Highlight Film || Villa De Amore, Temecula, CA

It’s a rare instance when I actually take pride in my work. Not that I don’t think my work is good, I just tend to be extremely self-critical. I always want my work to be better, to be the absolute best possible, an impossible standard to say the least.

That being said, God, I love this film. When filling out their questionnaire, Christine and Howard gave me a great gift by filling out each text box with great discretion and specificity. They knew exactly what they wanted and didn’t want, and surprisingly in this case, I feel like that allowed me to be more creative. I knew better what things to spend extra time on and what things to avoid completely. The result is the video you see here. I hope you guys like it.

Kathy + Scott || Wedding Highlight Film || Gershon Bachus Vitners, Temecula

August was a crazy month for the video team with back to back to back Temecula weddings, the first of which I’m so excited to finally share. Kathy and Scott were some of the chillest, most-down-to-earth people I’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting, and their wedding was perfectly tailored to them. From the inside-joke table names to a bridal march set to the Foo Fighters “Everlong,” everything about the day was just so effortlessly cool, and I hope that shows through in their highlight. I’m kind of proud of this one, so hope you guys enjoy it too!

Cindy + Luu || Wedding Highlight Film || Serendipity Gardens, Oak Glen, CA

One of the best things a couple can give their videographer is their absolute trust — trust that we will capture every important part of their day, and more importantly, that we’ll do so way that’s creative, engaging, and fun. For Cindy and Luu’s wedding, I definitely pulled out all the stops — film burns, 8-way “split screens,” the works — everything to bring their beautiful celebration to life. Hope you guys enjoy watching as much as I enjoyed making it. Cheers~

Kamille + Kelly || Wedding Highlight Film || Four Seasons Westlake Village

The best weddings are the ones that don’t feel like work, which is exactly what we got for the Kamelly bash a couple weekends back. From rolling out with our all star photo and video team to playing foosball with the bridal party after the reception, everything about this day just felt like one big party — an absolute dream wedding. Hope you guys enjoy!!

Donna + Korey || Wedding Highlight Film || Ebell Club, Long Beach, CA

Out by Downtown Long Beach, there’s this gorgeously hipster, gorgeously art deco-style banquet hall called the Ebell Club, and it’s here that the newlywed Mathers most recently tied the knot. From when we first met a few months ago, Donna and Korey were some of the nicest, most driven people I’d ever met, and getting to catch up with them this day and hear stories from all their family and friends only confirmed those first impressions. I’m so stoked to finally share this video with you all. Hope you love it.

Amily + Eric || Same Day Wedding Highlight Film || Nixon Library, Yorba Linda, CA

True story: I’ve been looking forward to this wedding for a while. From our first meeting to their engagement shoot and finally to their wedding day, Amily and Eric became our fast friends, and getting to shoot for them was less like work and more like creating a special gift. From their music choice to their surprise baby gender reveal, these guys put their absolute trust in us, and I hope it paid off. Enjoy!

Lisa + Eric || Same Day Edit Wedding Highlight Film || Huntington Beach

One of the most amazing, most touching parts of this job is seeing the groom’s face when the bride walks down the aisle. Some guys smile. Some guys start tearing up a bit. For this past weekend’s wedding, though, our groom Eric didn’t even wait til Lisa’s grand entrance to start the waterworks — the emotional cries came flooding out right from the morning gift exchange!

We got to share Lisa and Eric’s special day this past Saturday, first at the beautiful St. Paul the Apostle Church in Chino, where both the bride and groom are members of the choir, and then at the equally beautiful Hyatt in Huntington Beach, where everything culminated in a same day edit featuring music recorded by none other than the couple themselves.

So in sum, tears and talent and pure, unrestrained love. There’s really not much more than a wedding videographer could ask for. Congratulations Lisa and Eric, I wish you guys a world of happiness, and thank you again for allowing us to share the beginning of your beautiful lives together with you. Please enjoy!

Congrats again you guys, and hope you guys like it. Enjoy!:)

Gladys + Arjay || Same Day Edit Wedding Highlight Film || The Cliffs Resort, Pismo Beach

Gladys and Arjay… where to start about these two. It’s been a long while since we met with them, when they were first wedding planning. Since then, we saw each other on numerous occasions because we worked the weddings of couples that were part of their circle of friends. Then, on June 20th, 2015 it was finally their time and all eyes were on them. As morning began, the hotel room was bursting with excitement and energy; it was rambunctious, crowded, and every section of the room bustled. But what else would you expect from such a lively and captivating couple? Gladys was all smiles and laughs from the beginning to the end and that’s exactly what we expected from her. Arjay and his band of brothers spent most of the morning dealing with the plight of of the skinny pants. As the same day editor, I don’t get to spend much time with the couple at all and I have to live the wedding day through the video clips that are fed to me. However, I felt as if I had spent the day immersed with the Gladys and Arjay because of the raw, genuine emotions of love and happiness that flooded out of every clip; when they cried, I cried and when they laughed, I laughed. During the same day edit showing, I watched as Gladys’ and Arjay’s tears rolled down from their faces at parts where I hoped would resonate with them; I couldn’t help but glow with happiness and be reminded of why we love weddings. We get to be part of one of the happiest and most grand moments of our couple’s lives. It was too short of a day in beautiful Pismo Beach, where the sunset was enchanting and the couple was even more intoxicating.
Thank you Gladys and Arjay for inviting us out!

Lyndsey + Jordan Married || Wedding Highlight Film || Serendipity, Oak Glen, CA

So it’s been a while in the making, but Lyndsey and Jordan’s wedding highlight is finally here! Personally, one of my favorite videos to date, filled with the beautiful scenery at Serendipity Gardens, the goofiest bridal party, and of course the amazing couple right at the center of it all. Seriously, during photo session, there was not a moment when Lyndsey and Jordan weren’t holding or looking at one another — it was the cutest thing.

Check it out for yourself just behind the little play button below, and thank you Lyndsey and Jordan for allowing us to capture your special day. Enjoy!
