This was our first time filming a wedding video at Ethereal Open Air Resort in Escondido and hopefully not our last. Great venue! Shaun and Kristen were the best! I had no idea Kristen and her whole family were such good singers. They were able to weave the songs into many of the main events themselves from the ceremony to Kristen and her Dad’s duet / father – daughter dance, which was a first for us. So cool. Also her surprise serenade to Shaun was awesome. We’re always looking for opportunities to make the wedding videos unique and their songs really gave us a chance to blend the wedding music and their singing together. So much fun!
I was initially a little nervous about how I would film it when this couple said they wanted to do and improvised “dance off” at each table at the reception after the grand entrance. Turns out it was the best idea ever! This couple was so much fun to work with and we got so many fun shots. Not only do they know how to cut a rug, but they had simultaneously hilarious and super endearing vows with tons of heart and personality. Combine that with a great first look and you have all the ingredients for a great wedding video. Nice job guys! Such a fun wedding. Thanks also to the Twin Oaks venue who always provide a smooth, worry free experience.
Can’t say enough good stuff about this beautiful wedding! Filming a wedding video at Lake Oak Meadows in the Temecula Wine Country is always a pleasure and this great couple really made it special. Also, filming with my new Zeiss 50mm 1.4 lens kinda blew my mind and it quickly became my “go to lens.” The sharpness and the way it captures bokeh especially through the trees at this particular venue is amazing. Of course, we just loved working with Jovan & Bret who brought so much enthusiasm, beauty and love to what was a truly amazing day.
We always love filming at The Condor’s Nest in Pala! As if the clear light and views of the mountains weren’t amazing enough, the mashup of mid-century modern, western, rustic and country styles is utterly charming and overflowing with new environments for filming. So inspiring! Of course, Stephanie and Warren were amazing to work with and put together an extraordinary wedding for us to film! Love this wedding!
