Janell + Matt – Ultimate San Diego Wedding Winners – San Diego Wedding Cinema

We were so honored to be chosen as the cinematographers for the 2nd Ultimate San Diego Wedding, put on by Bridal Insider and Star 94.1 and lead by Courtney from After the Engagement. She was the brain behind everything for this day, the vendors, the details, the food, etc… We had so much fun during the process, reading all the stories from the couples who submitted them. Here’s Janell and Matt’s story if you’d like to read it. We also got to hang out with La Vida during the engagement shoot which we just posted here. The wedding day was beautiful, A Beautifully Brilliant Brunch. The pancake shaped cake, the bacon and pancake cake pops, omelet and eggs Benedict stations…fantastic!!

We had so much fun with everyone and hope you enjoy their film…

Behind the scenes at San Diego’s Ultimate Wedding | San Diego Wedding Photographer | Evan Bishop Photography | Southern California & Destination Wedding Photojournalist -

[…] Cameras, cameras and more cameras.  Yes, I was actually a fifth wheel at this particular wedding (not including guest cameras and vendors iphones of course!) Being the documenting photographer, part of the job was actually showing the behind the scenes of the other photographers at work.  Jeff and Betsy as well as Jared and Danielle were the photographers and cinematographers respectively.  It was fun taking the backseat at the wedding and watching these four work, as well as trying to incorporate a feel for what goes on behind the scenes at a wedding.  To get a better perspective, check out Jeff and Betsy’s Ultimate Wedding Post, as well as Danielle and Jared’s video on their blog.
