Gaby + Dave – Soul Mates – San Diego Wedding Cinema

One of the sweetest couples of all time, hands down. We didn’t have the opportunity to meet Gaby and Dave before the big day but they were so warm and welcoming when we first met that we felt right at home with them. They knew they were soul mates after a few dates which is so romantic and what a better place for them to get married than the romantic Grand Tradition! To a beautifully happy couple, we wish you the very best and we enjoyed making your film!

Christina + Chris – One and Only – Orange County Wedding Cinema

We love working with people who are not only beautiful on the outside but on the inside as well, and at such a beautiful venue! Chris, Christina and their families were so genuine, and I loved the theme of their day as each of the families gave away their only son and only daughter. These two are so in love and so cute together, they are each others’ one and only.

Sara + Patrick – Together – Paso Robles Wedding Cinema

Sara and Patrick met us through one on our couples from ’09 Kate and Greg (such a huge compliment to us when we get referrals from past couples!). Sara asked if we were willing to travel to Paso Robles for their wedding and we said OF COURSE! In fact we had just been there a few weeks before she contacted us for a mini vacation. We love it up there, small towns and tons of wineries = right up our alley.

Anyway, their wedding was gorgeous with sweeping views of the vines, a warm summer day, lots of great people and delicious food. We really had a great time shooting their wedding. Their little dog Hayley was pretty cute too even though she didn’t like the camera and barked at me the whole time!

Vicky + Kostas – Lifetime Love – San Diego Wedding Cinema

Vicky&Kostas have such an awesome love story spanning 18 years. We didn’t meet with them before the wedding as they were planning this event long distance but over the course of the day we were able to piece parts of their story together. I think the biggest thing we noticed about these two is just how in love they are. It may have taken them a long time to figure it out but it’s so obvious to us on the outside. They got each other the same present as you’ll see and their personal vows were so similar. His family is Greek so we got to see a fun tradition of theirs at the reception where they shower money over people during the dancing, and their friends do skits for each others’ weddings so that was a fun addition to the craziness! I also loved their dessert bar = YUM! We had a great time working with you two and all your fabulous vendors as well, congratulations Vicky&Kostas, enjoy!

Katie + Som – Whimsy – Rancho Santa Fe Wedding Cinema

I don’t know how these two found this venue but it was lovely! This was the first wedding at the Valentino Estate. Whimsical trees and a quiet pond surround the ceremony location and Katie had these wonderful glass orbs hanging from the trees. I loved all the little details, the way she displayed the name cards and unity sand photo frame. And their friends put together a flash mob dance to Rihanna’s Umbrella to kick off the dancing. So fun:)

Event Cinema Workshop – Chicago

We had a wonderful time at the Event Cinema Workshop in Chicago a few weeks ago. We learned so much from Stillmotion, Pacific Pictures and Joe Simon Films. The first day we spent learning from the three and boy did we learn a lot! At the end of the first day we were put into random groups and were told that we would be working on a project the next day together. So that night we all got together with our groups to decide the roles for each person and plan the film. The rules: 4 hours to shoot a 30-60 second film, to the theme ‘Time’, edited to a particular piece of music, no dialogue and we had use of a model.

The second day we learned more and then broke off to shoot our films! It was a fun and challenging experience because we’re not used to being able to have so much control and planning out shots. Chicago was fun to shoot and our model turned out to be a great actress as well, which was a pleasant surprise. After we all finished shooting we all got the footage and every person could edit their own version. We just found out that my version of our team’s video was chosen as a finalist for some prizes that are on the line! So exciting:)

So…if I could ask once again, please take a minute to vote for my edit of Time (from Kevin’s team – team A woot!)

Here’s the video, click here to vote:

And here are some behind the scenes photos:

Here’s Jared’s edit of his team’s concept:
