Nestldown Promo shoot.

May 24, 2011

A few weeks ago Pamela and I worked with a great group of vendors from Elite Vendor Group. Every single person involved in this group is on top of their craft. It was a pleasure working with them all. I will not even attempt to write about all of them, but their credits are listed below. It takes a large group of people to execute a shoot like this, and the same goes for a real wedding.

Nestldown is a beautiful private estate that hosts many weddings each year. The grounds are stunning and made for an incredible backdrop for our shoot. Take a look at this video to see what we came up with!

Wedding: Yui and Duy at Clos La Chance

May 16, 2011

Two weeks ago Pamela and I shot a wedding at Clos La Chance, a winery we love to visit outside of weddings. The winery makes for a stunning backdrop and they added a wonderful color palate of cream and pink.

The vendors included Jondel Goldsmith with the fantastic catering of Le Papillon, which served a phenomenal meal; I have come to expect nothing less from them. Makeup was by Lisa Strutz.

We also worked alongside photographer Khris Griffis, and had a great time with them throughout the day. It's always great to meet photographers we haven't worked with yet! Flowers were Tanjeeryn Designs and the Cake was by Satura Cake.

We had a wonderful time shooting there! Congratulations and thanks to Yui and Duy for having us be part of their special day!

Spring Cherry Blossom Shoot

May 05, 2011

Last month Pamela and I worked on a collaborative project with Wedding vendors including: Photography: Jill Johnson Photography  Event Concept and Styling Coastside Couture  DessertsEdith Meyer Wedding Cakes  Beauty Ingrid Marayag Makeup Artistry  Hair Design Mimi and Taylor Salon  Video Luke Goodman Photo and Cinema  Stationery: Crescent Moon Paper Company   Florals: Fionna Floral  Dresses Gabrielle's Bridal Atelier  Suit Rental Eli Thomas for Men  Linen Rental: Alexis Party Rentals

I really enjoy working as a team, and it's why I love filmmaking.  You can't thist alone.  The girls put together a beautiful shoot, and we finally got the weather to cooperate.

The video is a combination of behind the scenes and beauty shots, and a great chance to get ready for some large weddings coming up and try out some new gear.  We shot at a cherry blossom field in Gilroy, and though many of the blooms had fallen due to rain, it was stunning!

We were published on Style Unveiled! I'm so happy to get our work out there!
