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!

Danielle & Tolga – Wedding Film
Danielle and Tolga were about as easy on the eyes as they come.  They could easily be on the cover of any wedding magazine... heck... any magazine for that matter! I offered to film this video for them pro-bono to get some experience with wedding films, and also to build my portfolio. This is the first wedding where I have focused solely on the video.... Enjoy! Music is 'All that makes us human continues' by BT.... awesome track!

Nashville Wedding Video | Country Music Hall of Fame | Lauren + Ryan
Rarely do you meet a couple that has such an impact on you. From the moment I met Ryan and Lauren, I knew they were truly special souls. I knew that this Nashville wedding video would turn out really well. During his interview, Ryan said quite possibly the nicest things about Lauren that I have ever heard. Any girl would die to have their boyfriend or husband say these things about them; and yet if they did, it would still seem forced. However, when Ryan talks like this, he means it, and you know he means it. It's genuine. Lauren has a huge heart and her love for Ryan is as clear as day. You will also quickly learn of Lauren's love for Jesus. ...

Jessica + Jacob
What an amazing day in Cincinnati. Note to brides wanting to have an outdoor wedding in Ohio in late September... if it ends up being sunny it will be one of the nicest days of the year. This day was absolutely perfect. Ault Park is a fabulous location to have a wedding. Jessica and Jacob are two class people with huge hearts. Their love for each other is evident, as is their love for God and his providence. This film was fairly easy to edit due to the fact that I had so much footage to work with. Some of the most beautiful moments to date were captured on this day. I love the shots at the end of everyone dancing. The sun was just setting ...
