Bob Hoffman Photography & Video had the privilege of documenting one of our favorite clients 70th birthday   bash where The Beach Boys gave a private concert much to the delight of the birthday boy and his guests.  The party was held at the luxurious Grand Del Mar in the Elizabeth ballroom.  The guests enjoyed a sit down dinner followed by a night of dancing and entertainment.  After a fantastic performance from The Beach Boys where they performed all of their classic hits, Wayne Foster Entertainment kept the party going with their high energy style.  Happy Birthday Papa Doug!



Tue, Nov 3 2009 01:08 | Permalink Alya and Santos didn't really want video at their wedding, but Alya's father did, so they booked us over the phone and picked our smallest package for their outdoor July wedding.

A few months passed and everything was double confirmed and ready to go,but, the Friday before the wedding, around 7pm, Alya's planner called me on my cell phone. Alya and Santos were still hesitant about video. They didn't want us to be in the way, but they knew they wanted a great documentary of their day. Alya, Santos and Alya's father knew that what they were planning was so fabulous and romantic and downright beautiful that they didnt want to miss any part of it. Could they hire a second camera person for the reception?

OF COURSE. We generally do receptions with one camera, but we never turn down the opportunity to shoot with two only improves the video to have more footage.Magic happened and we took care of it. It was a go, and six hours of an additional camera were added to their package, but still with several warnings to be as unobtrusive as possible (as we always are).

As it turns out their wedding was amazing. With a second camera we were able to capture their horse drawn carriage exit AND the look on their guests faces, the first dance AND the band as they were singing, the people making toasts AND Alya and Santos' reactions. The video turned out absolutely beautiful, and by the end of the night Santos and Alya were loving the camera! Santos, who had warned Tom (their main videographer) to stay out of the way and told him that he didn't really want video said " I can't wait to see the video. I know you got some great shots."

Alya and Santos - Thank you so much for including us in your wedding day! Thank you for having the intuition to know that you wanted to remember your wedding day for the rest of your lives. It was truly a pleasure to create such a beautiful wedding video for you. Happy, loving couples make warm and sentimental wedding videos. :)

Thank you Gillespie Photo for sending them our way and Wayne Foster Entertainment for putting on a great party. It's always a pleasure to work with both of you.

Happy Anniversary! A look back :)

Annie and Mark were married September 27, 2008 at Founders Chapel at USD. We used three HD cameras to capture every second and angle of their vows. It was well worth it! Their reception at The Grand Del Mar was spectacular to say the least.
Wayne Foster Entertainment was absolutely amazing! The fantastic Mary Noble planned a complete fairytale and guests danced the night away.

Watch the video on our site.

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.
