Amy & David | Gloria Ferrer Winery | Sonoma Wedding Videography

It all started at a birthday party five years ago.

Since then, Amy and David have taught each other countless lessons from bike riding to living in the moment. You can tell how deeply Amy and David care for each other from the way she enthusiastically greets him at the end of a long day, to how he lovingly answers all her questions. In the words of the officiant, the bride and groom’s dear friend, “Amy and David, you make each other better every day. Continue to help each other, and to learn from each other. For life is, after all, a series of new days with new discoveries. Regardless of where you are and where your adventures take you, find comfort in the home that you have created together.” Congratulations, Amy and David!

Linda & Bryant | The Ivy Room | Chicago Wedding Videography

After Linda and Bryant met in the first grade, Bryant’s father, “Pops”, would tease him and say, “go get her”. Turns out, that’s exactly what he did.

Linda and Bryant went on to have every math class from middle school to high school together. They got their Driver’s Licenses together, and even went to Homecoming and Prom together. Although Linda and Bryant went to different colleges (her at Duke and he at UIllinois), their relationship continued as they truly grew up together. It seemed like now, with Linda almost done with medical school and Bryant, a Master’s degree in hand, was the perfect time for the two lifelong friends to be wed.

Caity & Nate | Scripps Seaside Forum | La Jolla Wedding Videography

They have been together for almost ten years, since they first started dating in high school. Caity was a popular cheerleader, while Nate was the laid back surfer guy. When they both ended up at UCLA, Nate choosing Los Angeles over his original plan of staying near the ocean in San Diego, their relationship really had a chance to take root. They both agree- their relationship has grown and matured every single year since.

Scripps Seaside Forum was the perfect setting for these two to be married. Against the backdrop of the ocean that they both love so much, Caity and Nate spoke their vows and celebrated with their friends and family.

Best of 2012

2012 has been a beautiful year for us. We’ve focused a lot on honing our craft and becoming even better storytellers through our cinematic medium. Here are just a handful of the wonderful highlights of our year!

1. We have now been featured five times by Style Me Pretty!


2. We filmed eight weddings this year, each of them unique and beautiful:

Cat & Dan, Santa Monica, California
Elisa & Brendan, San Francisco, California
Anny & John, Woodside, California
Becky & David, Walnut Creek, California
Olivia & Dan, Napa, California
Kristina & Ian, Sea Ranch, California
Sun & Elliot, Evanston, Illinois

3. Of our weddings this year, the most popular was Becky and David’s creative California ranch wedding:

4. We also filmed, edited, and appeared in our first personal video that we’ve shared– our Second Thanksgiving celebration with our friends in Los Angeles:

5. And finally, we made a bunch of “invisible” behind the scenes upgrades, such as incorporating and becoming an LLC, moving web servers, upgrading our vimeo account, purchasing new gear, and more!

Thank you to all of our 2012 couples for a fantastic year. We’re looking forward to growing, learning, laughing, and sharing more in 2013!
