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!

Myles and Jennifer – Wedding Film
Jennifer is all laughs, and it is hard to be in the same room with her without smiling. She just has that affect on you. Myles is a stand up guy and I knew the minute I met him that he was classy and well spoken gentleman. The day could not have been much better for this wedding. The wedding took place in my hometown of Delaware, with the reception taking place at Delaware's pride and joy (sorry Rutherford B. Hayes)... the Little Brown Jug. I had no wedding videos in 2011, so I was a bit rusty. I forgot how heavy all the equipment was, and how much harder it was to go from point A to point B. In the end I feel this is my best wedding video ...

Jillian + Michael
High Line Car House Wedding Jill and Mike are such a great couple. I am so glad they chose me to shoot a wedding film for them. From the minute I met them back at that Starbucks, I knew that their day would be special. Mike designed a ring for Jill to wear on her right hand that used stones from his grandmother's ring. His grandmother wanted Jill to have it after she passed away. Jill had no idea about this until she received the ring, and heard its story just moments before the ceremony. Watching her receive that ring is one of the best moments I have ever filmed. I teared up multiple times while editing this film when I got to t ...

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!
