Kristen + Kurt | Immaculata | Scripps Forum

Mon, Apr 30 2012 11:43 | Permalink


Some weddings are just perfect, and this one has everything you could ever ask for: heart, humor, romance, family, love....and did I mention humor?

Kristen & Kurt had the perfect day. I have so much that I want to share from this wedding, because their unedited footage made me cry, and then laugh so hard that I cried again. The toasts are hilarious and heartfelt. Their highlight recap is one of my favorites. BUT, most of all I want to share the out-take reel that we made as a surprise to them! Most weddings just aren't this funny. First, their actual wedding highlight:

Jen + Scott | Thursday Club Wedding Video Highlight

Fri, Dec 9 2011 11:49 | Permalink Some weddings are such a pleasure to work. I love when it's obvious how much a couple loves each other and when a family comes together so gracefully to celebrate it.



Jen and Scott were married at the Thursday Club in Point Loma. They hired us for Photography long before the big day, but we're quite set on video. I remember emailing with Jen while I was in New York two weeks before their wedding about how to make it work for them. I was SO happy when she told me they had decided to go for it.

Her email this morning made my day: "We LOVE it! And we are sooo happy that everything worked out and we even have a video to remember our wedding day!! Thanks for helping me see we needed one! It is a blessing!"

Some things are just too special not to be documented. Congrats again Mr. & Mrs. Martin

Whitney + Brian | The Dana on Mission Bay

Fri, Nov 4 2011 12:13 | Permalink This will be my third and final post about Whitney and Brian's wedding (Wedding & Engagement) because their video is finally here!! I am so happy for them and the family they're creating, but a little sad to officially be done working on their wedding.

Whitney gave us complete trust to do whatever we wanted when it came to her video, including a little bit of force to do it in the first place. We gave her a lot of exciting surprises along the way and we're all beyond thrilled that they loved everything we did to make her day amazing.

Her email response to this highlight totally made my day: "That is soooo awesome! I love this video, I loved that day, I love life."



Their wedding was filled with love and focus on their relationship. Almost all of their vendors were close friends and professionals in the industry, so the whole day flowed seamlessly. Eric Scott Gold made sure that everyone had an excellent time and even set up fun, surprise reception lights for when the party really got started. My favorite part was Whitney's surprise voice-over message that we made with her for the father-daughter dance.


Whitney used a lot of our wedding videos to help her plan, so I'm sure she wouldn't mind if you stole a few ideas from her too.

Thank you to the Bob Hoffman  team (Bob, Tara, Tom, Jonathan, Bryan & Tristan) for working so hard to make my friends wedding great :)

Whitney + Brian | The Dana on Mission Bay

Tue, Aug 23 2011 05:03 | Permalink
Whitney is a friend of mine and I had such a great time wedding planning with her. I'm truthfully a little bit sad that her wedding has passed, but I'm obviously SO happy for them!

Probably within three weeks of their engagement the biggest parts of wedding planning were taken care of. She picked The Dana out of a magazine and she didn't spend too much time making decisions. She told me "when I know I like something, done, NEXT...this is fun," and so only the details were left for the next several months.

For their wedding we did photography, videography and a special surprise "I love you" voice over recording to her parents that Eric (Classy Event Group, DJ) played during her father/daughter dance song.

Thank you Whitney, Brian & family for letting Bob, Tara, Tom, Bryan, Jonathan and me (and Eric of course) play such an important and special role in your wedding day. We love you ;)

Amanda's sister was so cute. She was pretty much over picture taking before the wedding started, so Amanda had to trick her into "helping with her dress" so we could make sure to include her. I love this moment.

I think this picture is hilarious. So many emotions at once!

Michelle & Travis are high school sweethearts and an adorable couple. Their wedding was held at the Bahia ponds and William D. Evans for the reception. Michelle & Travis met before their beautiful ceremony. For the reception, Michelle told us that she fell in love with the stained glass ceiling of the boat and Travis loved the bar, so we took extra care to incorporate both elements into their photos. The fireworks were a beautiful addition to a wonderful wedding. It was quite fairytale-like to watch them.

Caroline + Scott | Grand Tradition Estate

Thu, Apr 21 2011 10:22 | Permalink We met Caroline and her mom at a Bridal Bazaar and we loved them right away. Caroline actually came back later in the show and booked us on the spot! We encourage this type of behavior, although we know it's rare :)

Caroline and Scott met in college and had an incredible romantic wedding on really the most perfectly beautiful San Diego day! We did their entire wedding with two cameras, plus some surprise third camera footage from Tara and her little new HD cam!

Here is their romantic wedding day highlight from the Grand Tradition! I shouldn't spoil the video, but I definitely got a bit emotional seeing the carriage ride in with her dad. That really is magical. I loved seeing their parents watching them during the ceremony and Caroline & Scott "dancing" with grandma via skype at the reception. Caroline is a cheer coach and all her girls were there to cheer them on at various parts of the reception. Adorable.

Kathryn + Nathan | Same Day Edit | Estancia La Jolla

Wed, Apr 13 2011 02:11 | Permalink We call our same day edits the "Mad Dash" because we literally dash around like mad (behind the scenes of course) at your wedding, editing the ceremony and making sure everything is perfect to show your ceremony highlights at your reception.

Kathryn's mother and sister hired us for this as a complete surprise to the couple and everyone in the room! Once we were done and 110% satisfied with what we made for them, we were ready to show it! After dinner we started off by playing a photo montage of the two of them growing up, and then of them together. Just as the presentation came to what looked like an end, we surprised the crowd with beautiful shots of Kathryn & Nathan's wedding.

As we stood nervously in the back of the room a guest next to me was crying and laughing. I'm pretty sure she had no idea I was part of team behind the showing, but it cracked me up as she said "SHUT UP, OMG, is this live? Where is this coming from? How did they do this?" and then when it ended she said "OMG, Bob, you're totally hired for my wedding." I considered her tears and comment a major success on our part - thanks girl in the blue dress :)

Here is the same day edit or "Mad Dash" as it was shown on their wedding day. Thank you to Kathryn's mother and sister, Gloria and Gretchen, their incredibly helpful and patient coordinator, Jamie of Ever After Events and Laurel at Estancia for helping us make this magical moment happen for them.



Great Great Great job to their wedding video and mad dash team: Bob, Bryan and Jonathan!!!

Leica + Ryan | Bali Hai, San Diego

Wed, Apr 6 2011 02:47 | Permalink We met Leica at a Bridal Bazaar just two months before their wedding. When we met them in our office we were blown away by how nice they were and Bob was excited to work with them at the newly remodeled Bali Hai!

Their morning ceremony was bright and colorful, a really joyous occasion. The Barongs (traditional formal Filipino shirt) worn by the groomsmen looked great in the sunlight, accented by the purple of the bridesmaids dresses and flowers. They ended their celebration with a gorgeous dove release and boated off to their new life together :)

Thanks Leica and Ryan! Hope you enjoy your photo preview!

I was blown away by these two photos of Leica. She looks amazing









Leica was actually named after a high end old school film camera! Her father enjoyed photography and loved the camera enough to name his daughter after it! Our photographer, Bryan has a Leica camera sticker on his iPhone....we thought it was an ironic coincidence.

Nicola + Josh | Whirlwind Wedding

Thu, Mar 24 2011 03:47 | Permalink Nicola is one of my best friends. Her fiance (now husband), Josh, is in the Marines and decided to fly out and surprise her at work. What he didn't tell us was that he wanted to marry her while he was here! She had been engaged since January and was planning a 2012 wedding, so nothing had been set yet. I got a call Monday evening and she said "what is your company doing on Thursday? I'm getting married. Can you do photo and video?!?!" With the help of their parents and friends they put together a great celebration in only 4 days and even had time to squeeze in a fun engagement session. Their video is almost done and I can not wait for them to see it, I'm so proud of the fun things we did for her. The words "just make it great, I trust you" = music to our ears :)

The engagement photos were done at Presidio Park (Josh's idea, and a good one!) and the wedding was held at Nicola's parents house in Spring Valley with a gorgeous video of the Sweetwater Reservoir.

Here are some of my favorite photos from their engagement and wedding day!

Nicola has been taking sign language for years. For anybody who doesn't know, the sign they are making means "I Love You"
Josh, Nicola and me :)






WEDDING DAY!!!



yes, she found a dress that fit in only 4 days!

Nicola was a bit nervous, but she laughed it off when I sprayed her in the face with hair spray and burnt her with a curling iron! Nobody said I was a hair stylist

 All she wanted to do was get down there and see Josh!

Kami + Christian - SURPRISE PROPOSAL SHOOT

Mon, Feb 14 2011 07:31 | Permalink Some days I just absolutely love my job.

Christian contacted us a few weeks ago to do a photo session with him and his girlfriend, Kami, while she was visiting him from Utah. As the session drew near Bob and I started to suspect he was going to propose during the shoot, but we didn't say anything. Sure enough as Bob and Bryan were setting up and Kami finished getting ready, Christian took me aside and pulled out a ring box!!!! He asked me to pick a great spot and we arranged a signal (talk about pressure). I tried to keep my composure, but I was definitely shaking, over-talking with excitement and fighting back tears. I don't want to say too much more or spoil the surprise in what you're about to watch, but I'm SO SO excited for Kami and Christian to see this slide show and share this special moment with their families!





About the video: Tara (Bob's wife), being the genius that she is, sent me a text message during the shoot. I normally ignore my phone on the job, but she called and texted so many times I thought it was a serious flood/fire/death emergency. Her text read: "I put the video camera in the car just in case he proposes to her :)"  At that point the video camera was too far away and I couldn't (quickly) find a way to get the camera. But her text came just at the right moment. SO, I essentially forced Bryan into switching from photo to video mode on his camera while Bob and I snapped away. SURPRISE!

Thank you both for allowing us to take part in such a special and important moment. This was a first for us!

Celebrating Coordinators And Event Designers

Tue, Feb 8 2011 04:47 | Permalink Suzanne of Shewanders Photography came to us a few weeks ago with an idea she had for a party to celebrate and thank some of our fabulous San Diego wedding consultants and event designers. They so rarely get the thank you they deserve and we love Suzanne too much to ever say no to her. So, amidst preparing for the Bridal Bazaar, editing and booking for summer we found ourselves co-sponsoring a party. Suzanne has a super cool, chic studio in Mission Hills that used to be a rug factory and is perfect for backyard parties. Although, the average backyard party doesn't have a fire spinner.....!

Also, as it turns out (much to my embarrassment) that in the making of the party we discovered that I'm afraid of sparklers. Watch and laugh:



This party was thrown as a collaboration with the following fantastic local vendors
A Sweet Addition, Bob Hoffman Video & Photography, Brightly Designed, CAKE, Concepts Event Design, Dining Details, Eclipse Chocolat, Karma, Rae Florae, Ray Thomas Hair & Make Up, Shewanders Photography, Still Listening Productions, Tiernan Tunes, The White Flower Boutique

We had so much fun making this video and attending such a well planned and decorated event. We're really glad Suzanne thought of us. A lot of hands went into the making of this video. Brainstorming and ideas from our whole crew (plus Suzanne), but the majority of the credit goes to Bryan and Tara for shooting/editing & producing such great footage.

Wedding Videography Trend Report

Tue, Nov 9 2010 09:28 | Permalink



Take a Sneak Peak at Our Article in
San Diego Style Weddings Magazine

October/November Issue - Page 342



From “in” colors and dresses to what’s hot in decor, videographers witness trends come and go. No matter what your style, be it traditional, romantic, eco-conscious, DIY or trendy, you want to be sure your wedding day is recorded! Ask any bride to recount her special day and she’ll say it just flew by. Regardless of this years trend, when you watch your wedding video ten, twenty or fifty years from now, there is nothing like seeing and hearing every moment of the most important day of your life. So, of course times change, but having every detail of your wedding recorded on video lasts forever, and what’s trendier than that?


San Diego Style Weddings


Emerging 2010 Wedding Trends

1. High Definition (HD) has been available for weddings since 2007. With more couples owning HDTVs and Blu-Ray players, it’s becoming accessible to the average couple. HD is six times sharper than standard and actually provides a more flattering image (plus, any great videographer will edit away your blemishes anyhow). Soon, all videographers that haven’t already, will make the transition, making HD/Blu-Ray the norm in the wedding business. So, upgrade now and be thankful for the amazing quality later, because why wouldn’t you want the best that’s available in 2010? Since HD and Blu-Ray are still relatively new technologies, expect most videographers to charge $400 to $1,000 for the upgrade.

2. Shorter Videos Couples nowadays are asking for shorter videos. With our fast moving 2010 lifestyles, people are busy and don’t always have time to watch a full wedding video every time friends and family come over. So, many couples are opting for a highlight style video instead, or for both a full-length and shorter version. Short and sweet keeps the absolute best moments of the day in one short place.

3. Video Save-The-Date, Invite or Thank You's Similar to cake styles and flower arrangements, videography is constantly evolving with the times. For the eco or trendy/techie bride, wedding websites are in, and environmentally conscious. Video save-the-dates are equally cool, but also classy and unique with the added benefit of saving trees (and some green). So, why not spice up your wedding website with a video save-the-date, invite or thank you? Video clips can include information to replace the traditional paper inserts. Directions, hotel accommodations and registry instructions can be displayed through video graphics. Plus, you and your fiancé can show your ceremony and reception venues, give guests tips about what to do in town and detail how to RSVP. You could also include a montage of family photos, interviews with the bridal party and the story of how you first met. After the wedding a special “thank you” video can also be uploaded and emailed to your guests.


4. Incorporate Video into the Event One way to spice up the night is to incorporate video into the event! Love to party? Videographers will capture every special moment as it unfolds and project it onto a big screen. This is called a live-feed. From your dad’s tearful toast to the impromptu groomsman break dance sesh, every guest will feel included and at the front of the action.

5. Share Moments From Your Ceremony Surprise everyone at the reception by sharing the most beautiful moments of your wedding ceremony, freshly edited, and ready for viewing only hours after the ceremony. Videographers call this a same day edit or "mad dash." Your videographer shoots your pre-ceremony and ceremony as usual and has an assistant quickly edit the footage into a short highlight to play for your guests at the reception. It can be included with a love story, old home videos and pictures. Why it’s so cool: Your guests can’t see your faces, and oftentimes can’t clearly hear your vows during the ceremony, and you definitely don’t want all of them in the room with you while you get ready! These edits allow your guests a behind the scenes look at your relationship and your wedding day. Plus, its super romantic and bound to earn a tearful applause.

6. Videos for Your iPhone In 2010 we can hold technology in the palm of our hands, literally. So, why shouldn’t you be able to show your wedding video on the go? 2010 brides are asking for their highlight videos, re-cap and full length videos in a version compatible for showing on their smart phone or uploading to Facebook. Viewing your wedding online is the ultimate in convenience and portability.

All in all, find a way to navigate video into your budget, because sound and movement, professionally recorded by your videographer, can’t be preserved by photography. You should even consider your wedding video an investment for the future. Years from now you’ll watch it with your children. As you laugh and cry, you’ll reminisce about the awesome trends of 2010 and your amazing day! You will want to keep your video forever and it will become your most prized possession.
