Heather and Michael Wedding at Hyatt Ziva, Los Cabos, Mexico

It was an amazing experience working with Heather and Michael not only because they are ¬†such an unbelievable couple, but also because all the planets were aligned and the team we built for them was simply deluxe! ūüėČ

Heather decided having Photography and Cinematography services with us.  When this happens I always call Josafat de La Toba who invited Daniel Jireh to assist him.  Luckily he was available, and kindly he came to work with us.

For Cinematography as usual, I brought my dream team, the super professional guys from Hera Pro! ¬†So far so good, but when Dennis Berti¬†decided to join us because he wanted to shoot more weddings with one of his new cameras… or how I like to call it… he came just for pure passion to photography (you can read his post about this day clicking HERE) I knew the planets were aligned somehow.

By itself, shooting weddings is a job filled with a bunch of satisfactions, “Shooting weddings with friends” (as Dennis titled his post) is the cherry on the top of a delicious cake!

Chris and Armando Wedding at Hyatt Ziva, Los Cabos, Mexico

Somebody on Facebook told me that was watching Chris and Armando Highlights and crying even when she cannot understand any spanish at all… isn¬īt this great? ¬†This couple was really excited during the whole day, and I took this comment as a proof they could transmit this¬†excitement¬†in the film.

Ophelia and Mike Wedding at Hyatt Ziva, Los Cabos, Mexico

It is always a pleasure working at Hyatt Ziva.  Besides all the beautiful spots we can find there that are great for photo and video, there is something about this place that I simply love!

Once again reverend¬†Marco Arechiga¬†gave us great material to work with and make Ophelia and Mike¬īs video just as lovely as them!

Yalda and Ben The musical Wedding at Hyatt Ziva, Los Cabos

From where can I start telling the marvelous experience we had doing this project?

Everything starts in one of the firsts e-mails Ben sent me.   He did one specific question to me,

– “Do you think we can make a musical video?”

– “We totally can, if you guys are willing to act, dance, and convince all your guests to do it!” – I replied.

How could I know by then that everything was going to be in the right place in every single aspect?

Ben dancing skills are beyond usual, Yalda sweetness  reminds me a genuine princess of those you can see in any Disney musical, the cooperation of all their guest was similar to having an entire cast of extras of a real movie production.  I really must say, a big percentage of the value in this project is totally due to them.

And what about the crew behind the cameras?

Leonardo Batis (my inconditional¬†2nd shooter, and director of a bunch of scenes), Heidi Sunsdstrom (3rd shooter and young padawan), Sam Perches (cool crane operator,¬†colleague¬†and friend), Luz Maga√Īa (assistant, script coordinator and my beautiful girlfriend!). ¬†This project would be completely impossible without any of them.

Thank you to Juan Carlos Tapia to allowed us (and helped us) to take a lot of the time destined to photos to do this.  What a better thing for the good of a project than vendors partnerships!

 

This is what Ben sent us when he first saw it,

 

ANGEL!!!!!!

 

I am at a complete lost for words….

 

This video, in short, is the most SENSATIONAL, AMAZING, FANTASTIC, OUTSTANDING, PHENOMENAL AND SPECTACULAR work of art I have ever seen!!!!!!!

 

I actually cried twice the first two times I saw it and still tear up after the 15th and 16th (and many more) times!!!!  We cannot wait to show all our friends and family!

 

Yalda and I love it and we cannot even begin to thank you enough and express how much we appreciate your hard work!!!!  Please offer our deepest gratitude to your entire team!

 

If you’re ever in Vancouver please give us a call!!!

Next time we’re in Los Cabos we need to meet for a drink!

 

Muchas gracias!!

Tammy and Scott Wedding at Hyatt Ziva, Los Cabos

Tammy is the sweetest girl, Scott is the most easygoing guy!  When this two adjectives go together on my clients, I know we will be able to work nicely!

If I suggested Tammy to move herself to the best light to me, she simply did it, if I asked them if weren¬īt be a big bother having 30 minutes with us for the video session, they just smiled me and said a firm ‘of course!’ ¬†I believe all that good vibe is reflected in this piece.

Special mention to Courtney Congdon the amazing photographer.  Most of the times photography is the most important vendor, we need to be side by side to get our shots and, if there is any space for us, we use the time the photographer is not needing.  Not here.  With Courtney it was like having her in our team,  as simply as that!

The key of Tammy and Scott wedding was cooperation. ¬†That, combined with the nicest weather, the sweetest family and friends, and a super nice couple couldn¬īt be better!
