The Bridal Party Music Video

A few weeks ago, I got an email from our groom, Johnny. He wanted me to create a music video starring his bridal party. He said it would be a great way for them to bond and to get to know each other better before the big day. Some of the bridal party from Hellen and Johnny's side were from different parts of CA so they either had to drive or fly in just to shoot this video. I had one shot, one afternoon to get it all done. All I can say is, this bridal party can get crazy in front of the camera! We had so much fun and for one brief moment, I said to myself, I can't believe I'm getting paid to do this! I was still recovering from being terribly sick when I shot this and I wonder if I could've shot it better if I was completely healthy? Special thanks goes out to Amber for helping me film this piece. I couldn't have completed it without ya! Here's the video that everyone's been waiting for and I can't wait to film your wedding this coming May!

Ronnie + Stacie's Love Story

Alan here. I met Stacie and Ronnie last year when they booked us for their upcoming wedding on April 3rd. They fell in love with Tina and Mike's Love Story Video and Same Day Edit and wanted to do something similar. A few days after we signed them, Ronnie emails me with a script for their love story. I read it and it was amazing. I would have to say, the funnest part of the shoot was getting to apply makeup on them when they had the getting older scene. All I used was baby powder and brown eyeliner. Even though it was only up for few seconds on the final cut, the scene took 3-4 hours to prep and shoot. It was an awesome 3 days of filming with Amber's help and I can't wait to shoot their same day edit as well! Props also goes out to Arlene and John Lee for lending us their living room and Denny's for filming inside their diner for a few hours.
