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!

John & Melissa – Wedding Film
John and Melissa were a great couple to film. Despite some heavy downpours right after the ceremony... the rain cleared and we had beautiful weather for the rest of the evening. The Rolls Royce was a class choice, and I swear the centerpieces on the head table were taller than John.This is my 3rd wedding film... and the first one that I would consider a complete film. The other two that I had done did not have any of the reception.I would love to hear your feedback! Thanks! Big thanks goes to Josh Stephens -a true professional :) for being my second shooter. Thanks to his slider and 7D we were able to get some slo-mo going and also introduce ...

Hannah + Lyndon
I travelled to Pittsburgh to photograph Hannah and Lyndon's wedding, which took place in an amazing setting, the Carnegie Museum of Art. We soon learned from a local that you pronounce it 'Car-neigh-gee'... not 'Car-nih-gee.' Whoops! If you are in the area, definitely take time to visit the Museum. It is amazing. I can't wait to take my son to see all the dinosaurs! Along for the journey were my brother and father, who filmed the event as I took photos. One team, one dream. Below are the fruits of our effort! Love the classy feel this couple has! ...

Wedding Video at The Lake Club | Youngstown, OH | Jenna + Ron
I traveled to Youngstown, OH for a Memorial Day weekend wedding. As you will see below, it was an absolutely beautiful day! The bride and groom were a joy to work with, and I am really proud of what I captured here! Everything wound up at The Lake Club, which was a fantastic venue. Things started in a quiet neighborhood outside of town. The girls all got ready at Jenna's parent's house. I was able to capture Jenna's interview on her back porch, with some lovely trees in the background. She read the card she wrote to him out loud since she was nervous about the interview. After this, I booked over to the church and actually delivered that car ...
