Last weekend wrapped up our last of the Same Day Premieres for 2012. We drove up to Orange County to spend the day with Ryan and Kristena, our stars of the day! We were very excited about their Same Day Premiere because they chose a song by Ben Rector called "White Dress" which we licensed through themusicbed.com. It's a catchy tune that almost seems like it was written specifically for a wedding. As the ceremony drew closer we really felt the effects of daylight savings even though it was the last day before the switch. I'm going to miss those long summer days! By 6PM the sun was out of sight and darkness was quickly approaching. I was glad that the venue had lights set up so everyone could see even when the sun went down. It was such a romantic setting! On a technical note, we're loving our new Macbook Pro with Final Cut Pro X. We can edit now like never before! Enjoy what we put together for Ryan, Kristena, and their guests!
Get your pumpkin lattes ready, fall is finally here in Southern California! Today we present you a romantic little film featuring Louis and Emily. They got married in a gorgeous chapel in Long Beach and had their reception on the Queen Mary. As Emily and her father walked down the aisle they were accompanied by a string quartet playing a beautiful rendition of "Cinema Paradiso" - the same song they decided to use for the soundtrack of their film. It was fun cutting to a classical song and it really suits their wedding. Without further ado please check out their film!
For those of you looking for an awesome place to visit on the California coast, I suggest Big Sur! Mike and Linda had us come up there to document their elopement and we fell in love with the place. Besides the gorgeous views it was amazing hanging out with Mike and Linda all day and capturing their story on camera. We keep getting lucky enough to work with excellent artists and these two are no exception. Linda designed and created the lamps that accompanied them during their ceremony, while Mike is a true "shoe junkie" at Zappos.com (he may or may not have more shoes in his closet than Linda!). It's not often that we have the couple all to ourselves - usually there's a tight schedule with wedding planners, photographers, and DJs all working together with us. So to be honest, it was a little intimidating having to be "in charge" the whole time and create this video for them. Since there were no guests, no people giving toasts, we thought it would be a good idea to have Mike and Linda do a short interview so we could hear their story. It tied in nicely with their hand written vows they read to each other during the ceremony. We're really pleased with how their film turned out and look forward to more elopements like this one! Thanks Mike and Linda, we had a blast! Music licensed through themusicbed.com
Hello blog readers! I'm so glad to post this video of my friends Aaron and Chase. If their story doesn't make you laugh, I don't know what will! These two are ultra creative and were so much fun to work with. In fact, Aaron and I are in the process of creating some DVD packaging that we're very excited about. More to come on that soon...Many thanks to Dave and Mariah of Amari Productions for their footage of the proposal moment. Music licensed through themusicbed.com.
Hey all! Mixing it up tonight with a different kind of video. I made this for my new friend Bryan Miller. It was so much fun putting it together and working with another creative-type. Enjoy!
