robert & jill | "the dark and the light" wedding trailer

from the beginning, robert & jill always encouraged us to be as creative and edgy as we wanted. although we thought we had a great concept and vision going into their wedding day, it was the improvisation, true emotion, candidness and happy accidents that made this concept even greater.

we wanted to incorporate a recurring theme of shadows and harsh light but when you witnessed this couples beautiful, emotional day and understood what was going into it, it became much more. on the surface it’s the cool silhouettes, contrasty shots, and unconventional, sort of grim love song but when you dig a little deeper, you find the correlation of the theme with interracial marriage, robert’s story of believing he would never marry, jill being the exception, their relationship to God and biblical references, the gospel feel of the theme and music, the progression of the shots from dark to light, and how the music ties everything together. we hope you enjoy experiencing this intricate video as much as we did creating it.

jenny & mark | "parallels" wedding trailer

one central theme to jenny & mark's wedding other than their obvious love for each other was shapes/geometry.  so not only did we incorporate some cool, one-of-a-kind video light tracing to draw up shapes but we felt that "parallels" was the perfect name for this trailer.  not only were parallels drawn with lines in footage and transitions to move with feel and lyrics of the music but if you look carefully, it was also edited to draw parallels between the different scenes and shots during the day.  we like to keep pushing the boundaries of the "wedding video" and we think the result on "parallels" pretty epic; just like jenny and mark's wedding day.

deric & tanya | "dream sequence" grand entrance

we did it all:  shot in a shooting range, tear-gassed in the middle of nowhere, slammed in the boombox crossfit gym. one of the most memorable shoots for good friends.  as a special gift, we wanted to tell their story.  the shots came out so surreal, it felt like a dream. without further ado, here is the grand entrance video to introduce the deric & tanya, "dream sequence."

special thanks to chaz cruz and rey bautista @ boombox crossfit.

FEATURED: ritz & ash | reflections wedding trailer

our first wedding since our baby hiatus and we couldn't have asked for a better one. a gorgeous couple and wedding. while editing it, we couldn't help but notice all the cool window, mirror and reflective shots we got. naturally, we used a little "reflection" theme for this trailer. we hope you enjoy watching it over and over to see every little detail.
