Palm Springs Wedding

Marissa and Ron were so kind to invite us to their intimate wedding celebration in Palm Springs at the Korakia Pensione. It was inspiring to capture their love for one another at one of the most beautiful and iconic locations that Southern California has to offer. The bride and groom invited their family and friends to stay at a historic adobe, dating back to the early 1900’s and were wed in its beautiful courtyard. Lisa Vorce of Oh, How Charming!, Mindy Rice, and Aaron Delesie created, presented, and captured the celebration beautifully.

Vibiana shines on Super 8

Amy & Jason commissioned us to create a film piece for them that captured the unique heart of their event. Super 8 was the perfect choice, encompassing both the playful and classic elements of their wedding day. I love the B&W film of Amy on the terrace and the spontaneous images of Jason greeting his guests. Thank you Amy & Jason for allowing us to take part in your amazing wedding day.

This is something I’ve been dying to share and I’m so glad Valentine’s Day is almost upon us to finally let the “cat out of the bag” on this little film. We had the ultimate pleasure of working with Plum Pretty Sugar to produce this little fashion editorial in celebration of Valentine’s Day. Plum Pretty Sugar makes some of the most sought after robes and lounge wear or what they call “loungerie.” Please enjoy and I can’t wait to share more of these in the future.

Inspired by Mid-Century Modern

We had a very busy Fall last year and one of our last weddings for the year was Jindy & Tilmann’s at the beautiful Resort at Pelican Hill. From the first time I met Jindy & Tilmann, I was instantly inspired and charmed by their personalities and vibrant love. Their two families came together from across the world to celebrate with them and there was a real sense of rich family history. I could talk all day about all of the beautiful moments I had to leave out from this short vignette, but I’ll restrain and let the film sweep over you.

Intimate La Jolla Wedding

Looking back on Laura & Jon’s wedding, the grace and elegance of the entire evening was beautiful. With the sharing of their personal vows and the exchange of communion, and followed by an evening celebration with family and close friends; you would have never known that the whole day was almost altered by the rain.

Glamours Montage Laguna Beach Wedding

One of my favorite things to see is when something modern and glamorous is captured on a classic medium like 16mm film. The combination of all those elements makes for a beautiful presentation. It’s always so much fun to see what film can bring to any event; be it a formal black tie soiree, tropical celebration, or natural mountaintop affair. Film captures a distinct feeling that often eludes the naked eye; Erin and Scott had just such an event. Their wedding had a relaxed glamour that complimented the beautiful setting of the Montage Laguna Beach perfectly. The groomsmen’s causal attire and flowing bridesmaid’s gowns, along with just a touch of glamour in the bride’s jewelry made it all come together so well. I couldn’t help but to tie it all together with a track by the french duo Air.
