October 3, 2008 Same Day Edit

This was the wedding of Kirsten and Gavin. They had their wedding at the Hotel Laguna which is usually pretty busy in the summer, but on their wedding night they were just about the only ones on the beach - except another bride and groom with their photographer! David and I felt sad for the other bride and groom because they were really get some great shots with the photographer, but there was no videographer- which I know they will regret. Thankfully, Kirsten and Gavin had a videographer to capture their amazing day- because you definitely can't just send back pictures to New Zealand, which is where they are originally from! They were both born there and their mothers were best friends while they were growing up. Kirsten family moved to California though- so it wouldn't be until later when Gavin would hook up with her again. We made them a highlight reel right away so they could show all of their relatives back in New Zealand who were unable to attend. Take a look...

This was Bergt and Wendy's wedding at the Marriott Hotel in Marina del Rey. We had the awesome pleasure of working with Chris Humphreys Photography . We also were quite lucky because it had rained the previous night and on their wedding day the sun decided to come out! It again would rain that night during the reception- but for the entire day, the sun was smiling on them. Which is also funny, because I just was checking up on our friends Chris Humphreys website and on it the song that plays is one of my favorites by Joe Purdy, I love the Rain Most - which goes on to say- when it stops, which is exactly what it did for Bergt and Wendy. Check out the clips bellow to see some highlights of their day!

Wendy and Bergt's Ceremony Introduction


October 11, 2008 Same Day Edit

This was the wedding of Carriane and Lalo Chavez. It was simply fantastic. David and I loaded up our camera gear and headed down south to San Diego County for their wedding in Fallbrook. Carriane and Lalo were first getting ready at the hotel Pala and then headed off to The Grand Tradition for their ceremony and reception.

The location was looking great and it was just chilly enough to be delightful. However, nothing was cold about the reception, the partying was not stop thanks to Jason at Visions Entertainment. We've worked with him many times before and he is one of our favorite DJs around. After you watch this clip scroll down to the post labeled Saint Monica's and the Biltmore- we also did that wedding with him, among many others. It's so important to have a good DJ and Jason always delivers.

All in all it was a great wedding from the horse drawn carriage ride down the isle to the grand exit with sparklers Carriane and Lalo will cherish this wedding day for the rest of their lives.

Jocelyn and Miguel's wedding was a blast! It started out at the Westin in Pasadena and then we moved to St. Andrew's for a beautiful ceremony and finally back to the Westin for the reception to finish it off. Joce and Mick had 18 bridesmaids in all, which made for a fun and zany wedding day.

We again had th pleasure of working with Taipei LA which we had worked with before on Jerrica and Roger's Wedding whose same day edit is in a previous post as well. Tommy from Taipei LA did a fabulous job and we had a great time with him.

All in all it was an awesome wedding celebration and the Pasadena Rose Parade has nothing on Joce's red rose centerpieces! The room looked phenomenal thanks to Darling Flowers and the hard work of Carla with Morningdawn Creations event planning.

And again it was a great party thanks to Sean at J+M Entertainment, who we haven't worked with before but definitely would love to see at another great event, since he was always keeping us in the loop before starting any special event. Although we are always ready to go, it definitely is nice to have a few second warning so we are ready to capture the memories as they unfold.

It was a stellar cast of vendors and guests to be sure- take a look -


A Love Poem to Long Beach

This is a fun poetic video we made for the State of the Arts Luncheon for The Arts Council for Long Beach. It uses a custom written poem by Mindy Nettifee. It is an artistic look at what the city is doing to make itself Greener. Please enjoy it!
