Cindy + Mike // Director’s Cut

It’s almost Thanksgiving and wedding season is coming to an end. I just have one more wedding in December and hopefully its going to be a long chilly season to keep my computers cool while I edit. I’m already loving this weather and my workstation couldn’t be happier! I was able to push this fresh edit today and I’m happy to share it with you all. Congratulations again Cindy and Mike!

Louise + Huy // Same-Day Edit

We got to capture this lovely couple’s wedding yesterday at the Almansour Court in Alhambra. We started the day with Huy picking up Louise in a Tesla Model X! Gotta love those falcon wing doors! Next we headed over to Huy’s place for a Tea Ceremony and some lunch. They had their ceremony at the Almansour court with a dove release that we caught in slow motion! I had a drone in the air hoping I could capture an aerial shot but they flew in a completely different direction =(. They finished the day at Capital Seafood. Cindy (the coordinator) did a great job putting everything together and making the day a success. All of the vendors were great to work with. Although it was a 13 hour day, it felt very calm and relaxed. I was even able to lead the day while editing AND I was able to finish the edit 45 minutes earlier than expected! It was so enlightening to capture Louise and Huy. During their couple session, I felt we caught a genuine glimpse of their affection at 3:39. That’s my favorite shot! Anyway, check out their Same-Day Edit!

Eve + Albert // Highlights

Happy Halloween! I’ve got a “Treat” for you today! What a perfect day captured last month in September! Perfect couple, perfect day, perfect venue, perfect vendors, perfect team! So it was even more appropriate to use The Red Velvet’s song “Perfect 10”. This cute couple found me through one of their guests who also is a wedding coordinator, thanks Jenn! After our initial meeting last year, I was hoping they would hire me and when they did, my team and I was so happy. We’ve never shot a wedding at the Fess Parker in Santa Barbara. If you haven’t already checked this place out, you SHOULD! This place is amazing and its right next to the beach! (As you can see in the drone shots). The weather was perfect too! I just kept thinking, I want to come back here and hang out.

Eve + Albert was great to work with, along with their dog, Pokey! They even strapped a gopro on his back when he went down the ceremony! I really wanted to use that footage but it was just too shaky. Someone should invent a stabilizer that attaches on the dog mount! There was so many great shots to choose from making this edit enjoyable and also challenging. My team was actually at their location the day before for a tea ceremony but we will save that for their Director’s Cut. Anyway, please check out their edit and if you’d like to follow their story, subscribe and check back soon!

Grace + Victor // Same-Day Edit

Another great wedding day yesterday. Grace and Victor was such an energetic couple full of laughter and personality. They were silly and goofy with each other, yet romantic too. After a few shots, you can see their fun personalities begin to unravel as the shots progressed. We started the day filming at the talented Kelly Yi make up studio in Los Angeles, then headed over to the Westin Pasadena and City Hall to capture their first look and couple session. We finished off the ceremony and reception at the La Canada Flintridge Country Club. It has been a while when we’ve seen such an energetic wedding party. All of the guests were so engaged and talented on the dance floor. The DJ was so good, I was holding myself back from dancing too! We also got to work with the talented Sarina Love Photography making this day a breeze! Anyway, check out their SDE =)
