Some Beautiful Wedding Highlights

Fri, Mar 13 2015 03:17 | Permalink
We publish a lot of different videos for our clients, and in a scramble to keep up we don't always get to share as much as we'd like. Luckily one of our editors created this quick recap video full of examples of videos we've done over the last couple of months.

I think it is a great recap of our work over the past couple of months and specifically shows the fun and pride we take in capturing the irreplaceable moments in a couples lives.

We work with so many cool and charismatic couples and we would love to add you to that list. If you are interested in capturing every moment of your special day let us know and we'll show you exactly what we can do for you.


Wiggin + Jeff | The Dana & The Bahia Real Wedding

Mon, Oct 13 2014 12:52 | Permalink

Wiggin and Jeff are a dream couple. Truly, truly a dream.  

We posted their wonderful engagement photos a few month ago on our blog (which you should definitely check out) so we thought we'd give you an update on their beautiful wedding day. 

Wiggin and Jeff had an outdoor wedding on the back lawn of The Dana Hotel on Mission Bay facing the water on a day with storybook perfect weather.  Great vibes and smiling faces throughout the entire ceremony as friends and family gathered to celebrate this union.

There was a good break between ceremony and the reception, which was lucky for us because we got to take this time to cruise to some of our favorite San Diego spots and capture even more images.

We have to say besides Jeff being one handsome dude and Wiggin being an undeniable beauty they are also some of the sweetest and smartest people in the world.  We wish them every happiness.

One unique thing about this wedding was that Wiggin and Jeff had games running throughout the reception for both them and their guests to participate in.  They had trivia and selfie scavenger hunts amongst many others.  It really gave the evening a great flow and kept everyone in a happy-go-lucky mood.


Kristen + Kurt | Immaculata | Scripps Forum

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:

If you haven't had enough of this wedding yet (because I haven't), here's their reaction to the reception ballroom at Scripps Seaside Forum designed by Brenda Swann of Swann Soirees:

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

Mary & John's Wedding Film

Thu, Sep 15 2011 08:13 | Permalink
A few weeks ago a man named John came into our office to transfer his 8mm film to DVD. He was married in 1961 in Los Angeles, CA. At that time film cameras were new and very few people had them. Well, one of his weddings guests did! They filmed his wedding with their "new" camera, tucked the footage away in a closet and completely forgot about it......for 50 years!

In cleaning their house many years later, the now 70 year old friends found the footage and mailed it to John in La Jolla. The note read "found this in the closet, thought you might want to see it." John brought it to and we transferred it to DVD and added sound so that he could watch his wedding video for the first time.

The moments of their wedding day were forever captured. It's like being in a time machine. She hugs her mother, who surely isn't alive today. There are shots of their car, their friends, their hometown, her dress, the flowers....everything. They look so in love. This video is so romantic and amazing, I can't even believe it exists. Nobody was able to enjoy it for 50 years, which almost makes it sweeter. John took it home to his wife, children and grandchildren to enjoy and told them stories of all the people in the video. He called a few days later to thank us, and of course I couldn't help from choking back tears. It was the most sincere thank you I'd ever heard.

Do you wish your grandparents had a video like this? I certainly do. Nothing makes us happier than having clients come back to us 2, 5, 10 or even 20 years later to thank us and share their stories of what their wedding video means to them.  I would love to hear your thoughts on wedding videography or what your video means to you. Please comment below.

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.

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.

Rebecca and Barry's
Wedding was the first at the
Scripps Forum and it was beautiful! The weather couldn't
have been more perfect, and all of the vendors brought
their best to make the day absolutely fantastic.

Rebecca's parents are long-time clients of ours, but they
didn't decide on video until the very last minute. When
Rebecca's mom saw the footage they were so glad that
they did because she got to see everything she missed!!
She was amazed at everything we captured.
