Sara & Nick


Melanie & Dan


We were lucky enough to spend 3 days with this adventurous couple documenting their fabulous wedding in La Jolla. From filming their love story to kayaking with the guys in La Jolla Cove and brunch at the Brockton Villa Restaurant with the girls it was so much fun to capture more of the whole wedding experience. (Most weddings are actually a multi-day event when you consider rehearsal dinners and all the other activities with friends and family.) La Jolla itself holds a lot of history for Melanie which made things extra special. Having seen picturesque weddings unfold at the La Valencia Hotel in her younger years it was kind of a dream come true to have her’s there as well. Capturing their story was so much fun. Working with the some amazing vendors like the always fun and creative team from Sara France and Co. and planner extraordinaire Cynthia Zatkin Events made the whole experience unforgettable. Congratulations Melanie and Dan!

Mackenzie & Collin

This has to be one of the most finely crafted and richly orchestrated weddings we’ve ever filmed. When people have a vision and a keen eye for planning, a truly unique wedding experience can arise. Filmed over the course of two days, with two ceremonies and receptions and several locations, just capturing all the unique details and moments of the wedding was a fun challenge in itself. Kenzie and Collin both have a pretty obvious lust for life and vitality that was palpable and infections throughout both days. We did our best just to keep up with them 🙂 Such a fun two days!

Brigid & Jeremy


The only thing better than filming a wedding at the Estancia Hotel in La Jolla is filming it with a bride and groom as nice as Brigid and Jeremy. It was fun to see their unique personalities woven into their well written and heartfelt vows and friend’s speeches. Great wedding!
