Love Made In Downtown L.A.

We first met James and Cindy one warm afternoon in Little Tokyo. Fortunately for us (and our appetites) we had popped into James restaurant Cafe Dulce (oh yum! AMAZING! go now!) and enjoyed lunch before setting off on a stroll with the bride and groom. We loved them from the start and spent the next nine-ish months looking forward to seeing them again on the big day. Their wedding did not disappoint! It was beautiful, electric, and filled with warmth as friends and family gathered around them in support as they started a new adventure together on a rooftop in downtown L.A.

From the Bride & Groom: "Ahhh!!! What a pleasant surprise and perfect timing! We’re just getting ready to leave for our honeymoon this weekend and we’re so happy the video was ready before we left. WE LOVE IT!! I think we already watched it a dozen times! You guys have such impeccable timing with editing all the words at the perfect moments and we love the time lapse clips during the ceremony & reception. SO, SO COOL! You guys made DTLA look amazing. We really got to relive our big day and you guys captured it so beautifully. We’re even more excited now to see the rest and can’t wait to share it with our friends and family! " – James + Cindy


“I’ll Eat All The Gross Candy”

We just love San Francisco?! A perfect place for cozy sweaters, quiet moments, and falling in love. Gene & Michelle were married at The Log Cabin at The Presido. It was such a special, sweet day & we are so excited to share their super 8 wedding film with you!

From the Bride: “We just watched our video- it’s amazing! Gene was out of town so we were waiting to watch it together (torture). You captured our day so well and we both were in tears. I loved seeing the people watching during the ceremony! Thank you so much for everything, now we are off to watch it a million more times!!!” – Michelle


Mike + Diane

This past August we took a little trip over to Boulder, UT for the wedding of Mike & Diane. We always love shooting in the great outdoors but as we descended upon Boulder we realized this trip would be a bit different. Not only were we surrounded by some of the most spectacular landscape we have seen but working with Mike & Diane in this vast wild was truly inspiring. We often enjoy shooting with HD video but there are times when the crisp modern edges of digital video just won’t do. Super 8 film can catch a moment the way you would a dream, sightly blurred & glowing, sealing it up into a sweet memory…

From the Bride: “My dearest dearest magical friends!! I’m honestly writing this while happy perfect little tears stream down my face, and puddle in my collarbones!! I love it. I love it so much, it’s painful. Thank you for seeing me and being so good, and so caring, and seeing us through the magnified lens only true artists can see through. You guys are so talented. Thank you for capturing my dreams, my heart, my smile, the rocks, my dude, it’s so perfect. It feels so surreal! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!! I don’t know what to say but I’m so lucky to have worked with you. It’s everything I ever wanted. Thank you!!! Ahhhhh! I’ve watched it 5 times today alone. You guys rule so hard. I adore you both!” – Diane
