Michelle + Travis | The Bahia, William D. Evans

Tue, Jun 21 2011 10:02 | Permalink
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.

We met Jill and Andy at a recent bridal show and I'm really excited for their wedding in July at Falkner Winery. I love wineries :)  Bob and Bryan did an awesome job on their photos. Enjoy!


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.

San Diego weather is (almost) perfect. I'm so glad we rescheduled Laraine and Anthony's shoot that was originally set for a really foggy, gross day. It was fun working with them and the La Jolla sunshine and beautiful sunset was a huge plus.

Christina + Scot Engagement

Tue, Nov 30 2010 11:58 | Permalink

Christina & Scot are getting married in Indian Wells next June and came out to San Diego for a destination engagement. Christina and I decided on Coronado (one of my favorite places in San Diego) for their session.

We were all really lucky and picked a gorgeous day in between two rainy days for their engagement.

Christina and Scot had a great time....

they were treated to a surprise "congratulations" song and dance by the Hotel Del bellman....
they enjoyed the ocean at sunset...
and we enjoyed hanging out with them!!

We even had time for a Christmas photos. I love how the Del looks at this time of year.

See all their engagement photos on YouTube:

It seems like their engagement session was just yesterday...time flies so fast! Jeanette and Mark were really lucky. We all crossed our fingers and it miraculously it did not rain in Temecula, even as it poured in parts of San Diego and LA! They had a beautiful sunset ceremony and an incredible party. One of my favorite photos is of Jeanette in the wine barrel room. Only a yoga instructor can bend like that!

Shana's Bouquet Toss 4.24.10

Fri, Oct 8 2010 03:58 | Permalink
No wedding is ever 100% perfect. Even with all the planning in the world and the best planner in town (which I highly recommend hiring), something is bound to come up that wasn't in the plan. The key is to roll with it and enjoy yourself.

This clip is the perfect example! When Shana throws her bouquet it hits the chandelier and gets stuck! The best part is that her MC actually warned her to be careful beforehand (listen carefully). The wedding party got a complete kick out of it and we thought it was pretty funny too. I love that Tom was able to get a close-up of the bouquet stuck up there.

Quite often the unplanned moments of a wedding reception are the most memorable...good thing they hired us to capture it on video :)

Marie and Adam were married May 8, 2010 and we were pleased to document their celebration at The Grand Del Mar!!! We made a special wedding trailer for them. Plus it is always a blast working with Trena Lozano, Kathy Wright and Rabbi Ian.

Side Note: video quality looks less than ideal via blogger. Please view on our website for a much better sample.

Fri, Aug 6 2010 12:48 | Permalink I met Lorraine and Alex at the Bridal Bazaar and when Lorraine told me their story we instantly clicked and we had to work with her! Their photos turned our beautifully and Bob so appreciated being treated like part of the family (because he felt the same way). Thanks to both of you!! We look forward to working with your family again :)

Estancia La Jolla Wedding Sampler

We love working at the Estancia La Jolla, and we were thrilled to make a wedding demo for them comprised of weddings we have shot there over the past few years. Below is the short version of what we created for them, the longer version that really shows off the property can only be seen in our office or theirs :) I love everything about the Estancia and I love this video because it really shows off their property and our wedding video style all at once.

Jen + Jason, October 2, 2009

Wed, Nov 25 2009 12:12 | Permalink Jen found us from our ad on Videography was important to her because some of her family were unable to make the wedding. Plus she understood the value of having such a precious celebration on video for years to come. She and Jason stayed at The Bay Club hotel and had their ceremony at Point Loma Nazarene University where Jen went to school. Everybody feared rain, but as it turned out, the pre-rain clouds made for one of the most beautiful sunsets we have ever captured on video! Following the ceremony guests enjoyed the sunset with a group photo and toast in place of a cocktail hour. Their Reception took place at Tom Ham's Lighthouse.

Jen chose our Timeless Memories package and we captured the day with two cameras at the ceremony and one at the reception.
Enjoy their recap:

Mary Bowerman helped plan their beautiful day!
p.s. LOVE LOVE LOVE the sparkler grand exit!!

Jen and Jason - Thank you for the opportunity to attend your beautiful wedding. You are adorable together!

Video Jargon

Thu, Oct 29 2009 10:03 | Permalink You have read every bridal magazine on the planet, but sometimes 
it's hard to decode what your vendors are talking about. 
Video happens to be our specialty, so let us help you:

1-Cam/ 2-Cam
This refers to the number of cameras that will be used at your 

wedding. When one camera is used you have only one angle. 
However, two cameras can capture mom and dad crying during 
the ceremony and your faces as you say your vows. The editor 
can cut back and forth. Two cameras can also improve audio 
quality since each camera allows for two channels of sound. 
Generally, 2-cam is necessary for the ceremony, but only 1-cam 
for the reception.

Authoring is the process of creating custom chapter points or 

"scene selections" on your video. It is fairly time consuming, 
but makes for a very impressive way to view your wedding.

HD Video
High Definition  (HD) is the future of the industry. 

The equipment is still expensive for studios and consumers to 
acquire, but it is slowly becoming more affordable. HD is six 
times better than a standard DVD.

For more video term clarification email Amanda at anytime.

Jennifer & Joey

Wed, Apr 1 2009 01:31 | Permalink This wedding was at the Immaculata and the Hyatt Manchester.
Please watch this video at least up until the vows. We shot the
ceremony with three cameras, so you can see EVERYTHING,
his tearful expression, her smile, the guests! We even included
multiple camera angles of their kiss! This recap version makes
me tear up every time I see the vows and the kiss.

The ceremony is soo romantic and the reception is so fun.
At the reception we went all out with two camera people
and a live feed of the entertainment (the amazing
Wayne Foster Entertainment), toasts and dancing projected
onto screens for all of the guests to see. We also did a photo
montage with a "mad dash" ending...all of the guests at the
reception were able to relive the ceremony just a few hours
later! It was a fantastic wedding that we are still talking about
years later. Thank you Jennifer and Joey for allowing us to
be a part of your wedding day.
