We’re a team of filmmakers & photographers with a simple belief: the best stories are true.

It’s those moments, those intimate and unscripted smiles and inflections, that combine to tell your unique love story,                                        

​And boy, is it beautiful.

BEHIND THE SCENES

our photography

Be you. Your love is beautifully unique & nuanced. And it’s capturing that authenticity that defines our photography.

PRESTON & JACKIE

Private Estate - Los Gatos, CA

Highlight Film

Authentic, story driven, candid- all great buzzwords. But here’s what they actually mean: all day long we’re searching out and capturing those real, human moments, then weaving them together into a 4 - 6 minute film that tells not just the story of your day, but your larger love story. We want to create something that moves, that starts in one place and takes you up to another. We want to tell a story that resonates and immerses you within it. You may have never even met the couple whose highlight film you’re watching, but we’ll be damned if we can’t get you to cry for them!

Xochitl & David

The Atheneum - Pasadena, CA

Feature Film

We give this 20 - 30 minute film the same creative treatment as our shorter films while also giving each section of your day more room to breathe. You get to hear from your officiant, your vows, and each of your toasters. This film allows you the time to truly revisit and relive your wedding day as you and your spouse set aside some time, cuddle up on the couch, and invest in it. More practically speaking, when it’s your 10 year anniversary, or you want to show your future children their parents’ wedding, this is the film you will turn to.

Shimoni & sean

Hyatt Regency Long Beach - Long Beach, CA

same day edit

Not every couple books a same day edit. But almost every couple that has seen one at a wedding does. Here’s why. There is a very unique energy that fills the room when you are watching your wedding film surrounded by all of your family and friends. These aren’t just random viewers, these are the people that have loved and invested in you and your relationship. So the cheers and clapping that erupt throughout the film are unlike anything you will ever experience. Over the years, we have done more same day edits than we can count. Yet those cheers, and the depth of their rejoice, gives us goosebumps every. single. time. PS. Like our highlight films, these run 4 - 6 minutes, and we bring a third team member to do all of the editing, so you’re not sacrificing any video coverage!
