Annamarie + Chris – Teamwork – San Diego Wedding Cinema

We enjoyed working with Annamarie and Chris twice, for their ‘your story’ – Modern Romance and then for their wedding. Their film was a hit at the reception and the rest of their wedding was super fun as well. They are just such a fun and funny couple. Their precious little baby was along for the ride all day too. They had a Chargers/Disney theme which is probably the most unique theme mix we’ve seen yet, hah. enjoy…go team!!

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.

Natasha + James – Every Moment – San Diego Wedding Cinema

It was so neat to see these three become a new family at this wedding, such sweet moments and a beautiful venue. I loved the flowers and the kids enjoyed playing in all the petals down the aisle. Natasha was so cute, telling us that the first dress she tried on was the one, and peeking out to see the ceremony getting set up. Enjoy this beautiful day:)

2011 Highlights – San Diego Wedding Cinema

Wow, what a year! It is always difficult to make these films as I feel kind of sad to be done with all these weddings. But I did enjoy going back through them all and reminiscing about all the good times we had. We did less traveling in 2011 than in 2010 but we still had quite a variety of couples, venues, ideas and traditions. This year was the year of performances, first looks and grand exits – flash mobs, surprises for each other, it was incredible. Seeing the emotion, the laughs, the smiles, the happy tears makes our job so incredibly worthwhile and we just absolutely love it. We do these highlights every year and incorporate all our weddings at least once which makes it challenging since we’re reducing around 14,000 clips and over 100 hours of memories from 2011 down to this 7 1/2 minute film. But the challenge is all worth it because of the film below, enjoy!

Kelsey + Jeff – Better Together – San Diego Wedding Cinema

They really are better together, that was the theme that flowed through the day, through the vows and toasts. We just love to see how people came to find each other and realize they would be together forever. This was a destination wedding at the Hotel Del Coronado and what a place to have everyone travel…what a beautiful wedding for their guests to be a part of. We enjoyed meeting you and working with you Jeff and Kelsey, enjoy your life together!
