Craig and Jason Wedding at One & Only Palmilla Resort, Los Cabos, Mexico

We are proud to share our first Same Sex Wedding film!   It was a little bit amusing watching the wedding coordinators and some of Palmilla staff  tearing up a little bit during Craig and Jason vows… I could hold it 😉

Enjoy!

Yasmine and Geoff Wedding at Pueblo Bonito Pacifica Resort & Spa, Los Cabos, Mexico

2 weeks ago we attended a series of wedding cinematography conferences…  We returned home with a lot of inspiration and new ideas I am sure it will be reflected soon in our work!

One of the discussions we heard a lot while we were there was regarding the music of the films.  Most of our colleagues coincide in the idea of us as professionals should select the music, not the clients.

“We suppose to know what works better for the story”  “Couples normally make a commercial song selection, and the fact of using those tracks will make the film look old fast”

We agree!  Welll… sort of…

If we took all this as a rule, we couldn’t have created something unique like Yasmine and Geoff’s Film!  Unique because talks about them, it shows a glimpse of how they are.  A story told with the support of their favourite music!  It will never get old, not for the couple which of course is our main priority!

We confirmed that after making all of our suggestions and statements regarding music (and any other matter not mentioned here) to our couples we strongly believe, they must have the last word!

Sherry and Eric Wedding at Esperanza, an Auberge Resort, Los Cabos, Mexico

Sometimes I can just be amazed by how things fit right in their place…

Days before Sherry and Eric’s lovely wedding, I had been thinking about experimenting more with slo-motions sequences in our films.  I remember I thought I was going to do it only if the effect feels right for the story telling…

Suddenly, I received an e-mail from the coordinator telling me that the couple hired a slow-motion booth for their wedding.   Then, during the wedding, Sherry said in her speech,

“If wedding is a reflection of the past, we are just so grateful to have met every single one of you…  If is a celebration of the present, we are enjoying every second since we landed here.  We really wish the time could move even slower, because we just want to absorb all of it…”

Lovely couple, lovely coincidences!

Mica and Ben Wedding at Sunset Da Mona Lisa, Los Cabos, Mexico

A week ago, after watching one of our films in a meeting, I was asked by a father of the bride if we had a system to do every film, like a some sort of a template he said…  To answer his question I showed him 2 more wedding films…  Then he said, “Noup, you don’t follow a template, every single one is different from each other” then, I just smiled…
While is true we try to do every single film different, we sometimes follow instructions from our couples if they want certain special aspects to be included.  Of course we also express our own recommendations based on experience, but always trying to do something unique, something that talks about our couples, and their wedding story.
Each film is different from each other, because each couple is different from each other, and we listen, observe and analyse them all by separate, without templates…   We are wedding story tellers, and we don’t pretend being more than that, we are conscious that we are trying to preserve their memories from our perspective, but they must feel is theirs!
My instructions from Ben were simple,
“We trust you and know you’ll kill it so feel free to run with it.  fly baby fly!
You got the vibe of the party, guests and the atmosphere so we’ll let you run with it!  The only song we like (and if it makes sense to incorporate) is Edward Sharpe Home.”
I hope you enjoy the result…

Jenna and Charles Wedding at Cabo Surf Hotel Los Cabos, Mexico

Jenna and Charles wedding was the first event we covered after my own wedding.  I must say, It is different now.  All what I experienced it was fresh so, it kinda make me connect more with the wedding… thinking and reminding my own while working, looking and smiling to my wife who was by my side, always working with me… my personal angel…  😉

I have always took very serious the responsibility of creating all this memories.  Now I deeply feel it. 🙂

I hope you enjoy the film!

“Angel!
The film is absolutely wonderful. We are so happy that we can cherish it forever!

Heather and James Wedding at Greengate Ranch & Vineyard, San Luis Obispo, California

As you might know, we are based in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico and little by little we are having weddings outside our area.  A couple of years ago, I wondered what I should do to start traveling and working in what I call international weddings 😉 without knowing exactly the formula.  The thing is, there is no formula!  All the weddings we have had outside Los Cabos have been due to past couples referrals we were lucky enough to work with.  And I cannot being happier that is the reason is happening.

Covering Heather and James wedding became a reality to us thanks to Laura and Ben (clic here to watch their film) who kindly referred us to this super fun couple!  The venue was at Greengate Ranch & Vineyard San Luis Obispo, California, the coordination was by LovelyFest Event, and we had such a great time!

Hopefully the international weddings will keep coming!  😀

Ashley and Matt Wedding at Pueblo Bonito Sunset Beach Resort Los Cabos

A couple days before their wedding Ashley and Matt was so overwhelmed due to some issues they were experimenting.  When they arrived to the airport their flight was delayed five hours, they still had pendent payments to do and, because of this, she was worried about vendors not showing up that day and so on…

When we met days before the wedding, she consulted us about some interrogates they were having on this process.  Our answer was, “You don’t need to be worried, it is completely normal in Destination Weddings having issues here and there, but at the end all the effort worth it, you’ll see”.  She looked relaxed after that answer and guess what?  Yeah… All turned out being just perfect, including the film of course 😉  Her words,

“You have us all in tears from Miami to Texas! We are so in love. This is something we will cherish for the rest of our lives Angel. Your crew was incredible.”

 

Tifanny + Gilbert Wedding at Hacienda Cocina & Cantina Los Cabos, Mexico

There are many kind of weddings…  Some are more solemn than others.   You can find those that are fun, or I have even witnessed the ones that are completely crazy!  Of course, all of them with their overwhelming and romantic moments.

I would say Tifanny and Gilbert’s wedding remains between the fun and crazy category.  All their guests were so much fun during the whole day, and Tiffany and Gilbert are crazy for each other!  😉

Sarah and Augustine Wedding at Cabo del Sol Ocean Golf Course

I was a challenge shooting this day due to the wind.  We needed to check audio constantly during ceremony in order to capture it properly!  At the end,  I even flew the drone fearlessly! 😉

As always, I hope that after watching Sarah and Augustine’s film you can realise as we did when we met them, they are simply meant for each other!
