Julie and Joe's Director's Cut

Alan here, it wasn't too long ago when I got an email from Julie about asking me to film her Hollywood Style inspired wedding. As I was sitting there as she was describing to me the details and the location of her wedding, I immediately thought to myself, "I hope she books me, I hope she books me." I mean, who couldn't resist the challenge of creating a movie poster with an instant gratification short that blends with their pre-filmed love story? On top of that, the love story will be projected at the Crest Theatre! This was truly one of the best Artistic Imagery weddings of the year and I hope everyone will enjoy the director's cut version of "The Perfect Catch".

Jennifer and Kelly Kent's Napa Wedding Film

It's very rare that I never meet the couple before their big day. I always try to at least personally meet with them 2 weeks prior their wedding day to go over their schedule. Going into this wedding, I didn't know what to expect, there were a lot of rules to follow at the reception site and Kelly, the groom wasn't too keen about having a camera following him around. As I arrived at the place where the bride and her family were getting ready, I immediately clicked with all of them. (whew!) Jennifer and Kelly were very easy going and a lot of fun to film and the video truly shows how much they care for each other. Special thanks goes out to Ken Viale, their wedding photographer for making my job easier and to their wedding coordinator, Traci of Napa Valley Celebrations for keeping us on the loop throughout the day. Congratulations Jen and Kelly!

A Downtown Affair, Gwen and Randolph Style!

We had the utmost pleasure of shooting one of the loudest and most awesome bridal party of the year. Gwen and Randolph were married at the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament in Downtown Sac and had their reception at the Firehouse Restaurant in Old Sacramento. Randolph sure did rock his white tux and Gwen had no problems with her top model moves during the photo session. I had a great time editing this wedding, I sure did miss an awesome party!

Stephanie and Chris' Director's Cut

I've been shooting weddings since 2001 and since then, I've listened to what brides enjoy the most out of their wedding videos, how often they watch them, etc. etc. It turns out, most of the brides and grooms use my chapter menus and just watch the exciting parts of their day. They also watch their five minute summary over and over again. So this year, we've introduced the director's cut in our a la carte items. In a nutshell, it's a shortened version of the entire wedding day but a lot longer than the 5 minute summary. Only the best highlights are shown and edited in a faster and more entertaining manner. This wedding was shot in April of 2009 and Artistic Imagery's first director's cut (running time: 15 minutes). Enjoy!

Congratulations Tom and Bethany!

Hi guys, Alan here! It's been a while since I've posted a video here on the blog. I've been crazy busy this past month with insanely huge projects and a lot of traveling. To make up for it, there will be a string of director's cut edits, wedding and event summaries on the blog in the next few weeks. This first one is Tom and Bethany's wedding in the gorgeous Monte Verde Inn in Forest Hill, CA. This one was beautifully filmed by Travis and Adriel. They have been working with artistic imagery for several years now and I can't be anymore prouder. I sure did miss an awesome wedding! Pay close attention to the officiant's little shimmy during the first kiss as husband and wife. I think he wanted them to get a room. Congrats you two!
