Our New Sample Album Cover

Super excited for our new sample album to come in! This is going to be the cover. It's a combination one of our favorite photos from Whitney & Brian's wedding and a photo of a plate that Whitney had on her sign in table the day of.

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

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!

Meg + Eric | Same Day Edit

Congrats Meg & Eric!

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.

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!

Leica, waiting to see her groom

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.

Money Dancing!

Whitney + Brian, Sunset Cliffs Engagement

Wed, Mar 2 2011 11:50 | Permalink
Whitney & Brian are getting married!! Whitney is a close friend of mine and I'm getting a huge kick out of helping her through the planning process. I'm amazed at how fast everything is coming together for them and the low-stress approach they're taking to everything, even with Brian being in San Francisco.  I'm positive that their wedding will be fun and carefree, a real celebration of their relationship.

For their engagement photos we met at Sunset Cliffs right next to where they had their first date and ended the session on Harbor Island with the beautiful San Diego skyline as a backdrop, just like their first kiss a few years back. Whitney wore grey with plumb accents in her scarf for the daytime photos to match her wedding colors.

In just 5 months I'll be posting their wedding photos!
