Shot at the Huntington Beach CA, state park and pier.
A beautiful wedding with the reception right at the CBS studios New York lot in Hollywood! Lots of tears from the Jasmine and Greg. It was one very memorable wedding! Enjoy 🙂
Shot at the Ritz Carlton in Laguna Niguel on September 29, 2014.
Here’s a backstory to this wedding. The groom, Jishan, actually proposed to Xiaochen the same day we shot the wedding. He planned everything before vacationing here with her and their families from China. I got the proposal on camera but decided not to add it to the highlights because I felt the events and footage didn’t lend itself very well to the edit.
A big thanks to my friend Becker Chan for helping me with the English translation!
This is the second of two wedding videos today. The first one was Brittney and Alex’s Wedding in Laguna beach.
Areli and Mario contacted me over a year ago to shoot their wedding. The wedding ceremony was held at St. Raymond Church in Downey CA, and the reception was at Palos Verdes, CA. This was a love story over 10 years in the making. A love that truly stood the test of time.
I love telling visual stories, whether it’s in the form of photos or videos. Areli and Mario’s wedding was really enjoyable to shoot and edit. Enjoy!
Tech Details (well sort of):
This is the first time I started shooting video with Micro Four Thirds as my main system. The 5D Mark II became a backup during the ceremony with the 70-200 2.8L mounted on it for those telephoto shots.
Here’s the first of two wedding video’s I’m posting today. Been pretty busy working on other stuff the past few months. I’m also in the process of revamping my gear. I’m slowly embracing the amazing Micro Four Thirds System. Although I still can’t imagine shooting a wedding without my full frame Canon gear, I believe that point is not very far down the road.
This wedding was shot in gorgeous Laguna Beach. Thanks to Michael Garcia for assisting on this one 🙂
Here are highlights from Julian and Gaby’s wedding in Los Angeles. When I shot their engagement session a few months ago, we talked a bit about their wedding day. Back then I had a feeling it was going to be one picturesque event. Well, it sure didn’t disappoint. Gaby was goreous in her wedding gown and the whole ceremony at the LA Cathedral was classic! There were some hiccups during the reception but overall it was a great day. This was one of the biggest receptions I’ve shot in a while…aside from the one last year where the couple had over 600 guests!
I was also delighted to be shooting alongside Sergio Colchado of OSPhotoVideo. Sergio and I have shot a good number of wedding together already and I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a wedding videographer.
Silvia and Patrick were married among family and friends on June 15 at St. Timothy Church in Los Angeles. The reception was in Saddle Rock Ranch in Malibu, a beautiful hilltop ranch with a fabulous view of Malibu Wines vineyard. Thank you to Bryan Lee of BWLee Photography for assisting!
Barb and Steve waited 16 years to say their vows. Throughout that time their love only grew stronger and stronger. It was a privilege to be able to document their wedding day. Congrats and best wishes!
Recently finished editing Joaquin and Melyna’s wedding video highlights. It was a pleasure to shoot and they were one of the nicest couples I’ve ever had the honor of shooting. This was a solo job, so I had to carry much of the equipment myself between Joaquin and Melyna’s place, the church and the the reception. I got home exhausted but found my 6 year old daughter sleeping in the family room. My wife said she wanted to wait for me and fell asleep at the couch, but only after writing me a short note saying how much she missed me. It just doesn’t get any better than that 🙂
A woman, rushing out of her burning home, grabs her jacket and family pictures from the living room before the whole house is engulfed in flames.
A man holds a picture of his wife and kids, the only thing he has left after a tornado blows through their neighborhood.
How many times have we heard this story over and over again. When faced with horrific tragedies, people hold on to what matters most… memories of their life and the people they love. These things that we hold dear to our hearts are worth more than just an album or a framed picture of a time in the past. They are priceless.
What sets me apart from other photographers? I don’t just shoot your wedding and give you a DVD of all the digital files. That’s still possible of course, if you choose so, but my ultimate goal is to create a beautiful memorabilia of one of the most important days of your life. That starts with me and my team photographing your wedding and it ends with delivering beautiful products that you can show your children, and they to theirs and so on. That is why my packages are centered around professionally crafted albums and print products specially made for you. View my current Wedding Packages and drop me a note if you want to know more.
