Calamigos Ranch Wedding Video | Birchwood Room | Malibu, CA | Penelope + Josh

I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to head to Malibu, California to shoot this Calamigos Ranch Wedding.  Penelope and Josh are two of the sweetest people you will meet and after watching this video you will understand what I am talking about.  They contacted me late in the year and asked if I would be willing to make the trip out. When I heard a little about their wedding, and what they had planned, I knew I had to be a part of the day. 

The day itself did not disappoint. The bride stayed on the premises in one of the suites, which had a large glass shower in the middle of the bedroom.  The groom got ready up the hill with the other men.  We were running a little behind, as weddings often do, but still were able to get a lot of shots of the couple together.  They did their first look right outside the tunnel leading up to the Birchwood Room.  The ceremony space was really great. The sun was setting in the background and provided great lighting, while the trees were large enough to shade the entire area keeping people cool.  From here we headed up the stairs into the reception space, which connects the indoors with an outdoor deck with a huge tree growing in the middle. They had all the tables out on the deck with lights dangling from the trees. It was gorgeous. I must say their desserts table was the best looking I have ever seen! I should have grabbed more sweets on the way out…

I had a lot of fun following these two around and really like how the final film turned out!

Amy and Nick – Short Film
Had a wonderful time shooting Amy and Nick's April wedding. The two of them have very big hearts for each other and their families. Family from all over the world came to witness the event, and not one left unsatisfied. The attention to detail was spectacular and no single thing was looked over in the planning of the day. It was great to be a part of all of it, and share in a very memorable day for these two. Best of luck in Minnesota!

Granville Inn Wedding Video | Granville, OH | Abbe + Josh
I have been to Granville multiple times, but this Granville Inn Wedding video is of one of my favorite days spent out there.  Abbe and Josh were just great to be around and had the best attitudes.  They were both so kind and welcoming. Funny enough, after the toasts were up Josh grabbed the mic to say a few words and the first person he publicly thanked was me, which was really humbling. They are a really classy couple.   Rain was in the forecast so a tent was brought out for the ceremony, but it ended up being a perfect day and we were able to get lots of great footage, both inside and outside. I love the set of stairs off the main lobby a ...

Jorgensen Farms Wedding Video | Kristen + Troy
I had a great time with Kristen and Troy shooting their Jorgensen Farms Wedding Video.  I met Troy a few years back via my son Ward.  Troy works for a medical company, saw the film I made of Ward, noticed some of his companies products in the video, and reached out to see if my family would be interested in joining him in San Diego for a company-wide meeting.  His company was merging with another company and they wanted to share Ward's video with the group to show them how their products were helping real families.  We obliged and spent a few days in San Diego, which was great.  Fast forward to 2016; I was at Jorgensen Farms for a wedding ...
