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.

ernest & divina | "coffee in the morning" wedding trailer

over of the course of their day, we learned that divina was a coffee connoisseur. and, having been wanting to use this song for a while, it just made perfect sense and had that feel good tone of ernest and divina's day. we ran with the first lyric and went with the "paint my love" theme throwing in some black and white splashes and color transitions which evolve into a colorful ending.

phil & rhea | "surprise yourself" wedding trailer

sometimes ideas just hit you out of nowhere.  sometimes a mistake or footage not intended for use end up creating something totally amazing.  for phil & rhea we played with speed using everything from rewinds, speed ramps, holds and fast forwards to create something totally unique to showcase a wedding full of great moments and little surprises. "surprise yourself," and watch for all the little nuances.

reuben & charmaine | "clockwork" wedding trailer

had a lot of fun filming reuben and charmaine's wedding in a couple awesome san diego venues: founders chapel & the prado in balboa.  working with such a humble, happy and bubbly couple always makes the video that much funner.  the soundtrack we chose had lots of texture in which we matched some cool transitions in order to showcase all the details of the day.

elliott & jenn | "all of me" wedding trailer

sometimes before a ceremony, when there's downtime during the day and if the couple feels comfortable enough, we like to try to get the bride or groom to say something about the day; how they feel right at the moment before they walk the aisle.  many times it is the most raw, emotional words of the entire day.  and we loved what both elliott and jenn had to say about family and loving the entire being, the good and the bad...something we believe in wholeheartedly in marriage.  with that, we chose this fitting song to showcase such a beautiful day, and beautiful wedding at the modern new children's museum made even more gorgeous by the talented bellz & whistlez team.

lee & myra | balboa park & harbor island yacht club vow renewal

as we've mentioned previously, we love covering intimate events.  myra & lee's surprise vow renewal was no exception.  just them two, a good friend who officiated (who was the same person who officiated their wedding 10 years ago) and their two beautiful daughters.  when myra contacted us about her plans, we couldn't help but be excited and jump in.  the day was perfect, the ceremony was emotional, and the celebration at the harbor island yacht club on a boat provided the best ending (or opening for the rest of their evening).

raymond & mabell | "where we are now" wedding trailer

we had a blast being filming ray & mae's wedding day a few weeks ago in beautiful san diego, shooting in some cool, lesser-known spots (thanks to kim marcelo) and the help of a talented vendor team.  we were feeling a little crazy and couldn't help but drop the biebs for this one.  and although the song's really about heartbreak, we played around with it, added a bit to an already dope remix and used our footage to tell another story; a story of all these two have been through only to find themselves "where they are now," on the biggest day of their lives.

anthony & kathleen | "these hands" wedding trailer

we're stoked to premiere our first wedding trailer of the year with a wedding that produced so much love, happiness and gratitude. anthony & kathleen's wedding took place at the beautiful pala mesa resort, a perfect outdoor backdrop for both their ceremony and reception. for this video, we chose a slower-paced, yet still hard-hitting score and song that highlighted the emotional vows and moments from their wedding day.
