Traveling is one of my favorite perks of the job and this past August we had the pleasure of traveling to Vermont for Jennifer & Canute’s garden summer wedding. I was recently told that Vermont is the United States’ best kept secret and after visiting, I have to agree. Jennifer & Canute’s wedding was held in a beautiful field, overlooking the Nebraska Valley, at the Trapp Family Lodge and the entire event was masterfully crafted by Beth Helmstetter.
A constant question I’m asked is which medium do I like the most, Super 8 or 16mm; well my answer changes from day-to day, but maybe for a true creative expression, the answer is a mix of the two mediums. Kelsey and Marc’s film was just that; unitizing both Super 8 and 16mm film, we were able to accent and show-off some of the great characteristics of each format. I love the over-saturated, grainy look, of Super 8 and am a huge fan of how clean and flexible the 16mm image is in low light. Not to mention, how the mix of mediums meld so well together to craft a beautiful and moving film. We’ll be doing more of this for sure.

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.
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.
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.
Jessica & Chetan invited us to come along with them to capture their romantic, Tutors inspired, wedding. Set against the stunning Château d’Esclimont, their wedding concluded with a larger than life fireworks display that deserved it’s own little film. There’s so much to show from this event, but here’s just a small glimpse.
It was the soft light, rich detail, and friends & family that made Caren & Neal’s wedding so much fun to capture. We’re honored to present a small glimpse of the romance and love that showed throughout their wedding day.
Lulu & Gavin’s vision for their wedding day was one of romance and soft beauty; Alexandra Kolendrianos and Mindy Rice brought their vision to life. It was a creative dream to escape briefly to another iconic location, Dos Pueblos Ranch, and capture a beautiful private photo shoot with Elizabeth Messina.
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.
