Huli + Jon – San Diego Wedding Films

Jon and Huli had a beautiful wedding day at an estate with their closest friends and family. I actually had the unique privilege of taking photos of the surprise proposal, which is fun since we don’t often do the photo side of things! Filming the wedding was a blast. They rented out a really neat house where the ceremony and reception were. They were both the sweetest and I loved how they did the “first look” where Jon turned around during the processional to see his bride coming down the aisle, definitely something new for us! The reception was wonderful and everyone had such a great time on the dance floor and at the donut bar. Hope you enjoy!

Andrew + Johnny – Ethereal Wedding Film

Andrew and Johnny had a lovely wedding at the Ethereal Gardens in Escondido. We LOVE this venue because it’s practically in our backyard and it’s beautiful. This was yet another rescheduled and long awaited wedding but they finally got to celebrate with all their friends and it was a huge wedding! One thing that was a first for us is that the processional came down two different aisles, and there were two aisles! After the ceremony we got a drone shot of the whole group which was fun. Then the party started and it was off the hook! It was an epic party and we hope you enjoy their wedding film!


We just received the video from our wedding in the mail and we were blown away! Thank you for capturing our special day – all the moments and emotions, everything was perfect. You two were so easy to work with and we could not have changed anything about it. Thank you again, and please let us know if there are any reviews or anything we can do to support you two!

Jess + Chris – Galway Downs Wedding

Jess and Chris finally had their wedding celebration last year. We got to meet them before their wedding to film their love story film, you can watch it here: Your Story Film

It was so fun to watch the video at their wedding with all their guests. Our favorite part was when they were talking about how important it was to be together with all the people that you love but in the moment they were with all those people. What a touching moment!

Jess and Chris had a beautiful ceremony followed by a super fun reception with an epic first dance. We had so much fun with them through the Your Story video and wedding, we hope you enjoy their wedding film!

Alex + Eric – Love Story Elopement

A few months into the pandemic, most of our 2020 weddings had been postponed to 2021 or 2022. One of our couples reached out to ask if they could postpone AND have us film their elopement on their original date! We of course loved the idea and we’re sharing that wedding film now 🙂

We went to Riverside to Alex and Eric’s own backyard to film the smallest ceremony we’ve ever filmed! It was just the two of them and their friend who officiated.

We went into town to do their first dance some photo time at Eric’s brewery, it was so cool!

I just love how they embraced the situation and made the day their own honoring that first date they had their heart on.

We eventually had the privilege of filming their full wedding a year later!

One of our favorite things about what we do is that ultimately we are story tellers…no matter what the story is or how the story changes, we’re there for it and we’re going to capture it. Enjoy!!


50 Year wedding Anniversary

These two had a beautiful celebration of their wonderful marriage of fifty years! They were planning on a bigger party but because of the pandemic, decided on having a small celebration and a larger one in the future. This celebration included their children and grandchildren at their home in San Diego.

The day was lovely. They had a beautiful ceremony including their whole family in the ceremony so they were all in the wedding and guests at the same time.

Then they had a beautifully intimate dinner in their home, then the family surprised them by putting together a musical performance! What a fun, talented family. We so enjoyed working with this family.
