Katie and Blaine Wedding at Flora Farm Los Cabos, Mexico

It has been pretty amazing watching how fast Cabo recovered after hurricane Odile stroke.  Katie and Blaine’s wedding was celebrated 5 months after this natural disaster at Flora Farm.  You could think 5 months is quite enough time to recover but, they got married at flora farm!!!  you know… where flowers and food grows after been literally flown away! 🙂

Flora Farms is not only completely recovered, it is now bigger and keep growing and growing.  A true demonstration of why everybody says Cabo is strong.  Enjoy the film to watch yourself how beautiful it is.

Farid and Golnaz Wedding at Hotel El Ganzo, Los Cabos Mexico

Farid and Golnaz’s event introduced us to a lovely Persian wedding we hadn’t have the honor of covering before, and to a different, and recently popular venue.  Hotel El Ganzo.

Farid and Golnaz knew since their early planning what they were looking for their film.  When we first met, we talked about how different their wedding was going to be and all what it was important to them.  They trusted in us and now we feel extremely proud to have filled their expectations!

Karisa and Scott Wedding at The Resort at Pedregal, Cabo San Lucas

karisa

We were not supposed to work at Karisa and Scott Wedding.  Sometimes we are out of couples budget and we totally understand it!  There is too much to plan, and too much money to expend, that wedding videography is one of the first services that simply needs to be cut off…

The ironic part comes when you realize, video is all what remains of the adventure 😉  It is what can preserve all the laughs, tears, and all this strong emotions in the most faithful form.  It simply allows to re-visit the day.

This is what Karisa’s dad understood when he decided surprising his beautiful daughter hiring us for her wedding.  “This is now, this is happening now” the minister says almost at the beginning of the film.  Well… thanks to Todd, this is how they are going to remember it…

Princy and Sri Wedding at Dreams Los Cabos, Mexico

By now, you surely have noted that the tendency in wedding films is having a voice over leading the stories of what you are watching.  Could be a speech, an interview or the minister reading.  It simply gives a Cinematic felling to the piece, besides, keeps the film interesting.  It is our main tool while building the history of the film. First thing Sri told me was,  “I would like to have at the minimum the voice over in our wedding film”.  He explained to me that he would like something slower and romantic… something, short and sweet, but keeping the story interesting!  A challenge without our story telling main tool.  We love challenges! This is from Sri after watching his film.

We both saw the trailer multiple times and absolutely love it! You really captured what we had in mind! Princy was in tears reliving the whole thing…  We can’t wait to start sending it around to all our friends and family.
And From Princy,Angel, I cant thank you enough! This trailer looks so awesome! we have gotten so many compliments. and most importantly, it truly tells the story of the day. I was literally in tears when i saw it. we couldnt be happier.

Jackie and Scott at Trump National Golf Course, New Jersey

We have had this video archived for a while.  It is really important for me sharing it because it was our first time working outside Mexico.   Of course after this New Jersey Wedding, we visited New York city for 5 days. 😉

This travel happened thanks to San Diego’s videographer Zeke Torres who kindly invited us to collaborate in the filming on Jackie and Scott’s wedding.  Zeke had worked before with the family  on Jackie’s sister sweet sixteen.  A year later, they decided flying him to New Jersey for the event and fortunately Zeke included us in the package.

Covering an event outside of everything you know has an interesting impact.  I am not only talking about the look of the film, you can tell immediately a different vibe due to the different and beautiful New Jersey’s backgrounds compared with the images you can get in Cabo.  I am talking about the impact in us when we are out of our comfort zone.  The nervousness of being in a far and unknown place, solving the obstacles implied, trying to not missing any moment, while at the same time,  experiencing the fact of being in such and amazing place, mixed with the actual feelings that flows in every single wedding, is a cocktail of sensations that hopefully you can experience a bit while watching the final result.

Rachelle and Drew Wedding at Flora Farms and Querencia Los Cabos, Mexico

Anything can’t go wrong in the building of our films when we are lucky enough to have all what we need to do it.  Seriously, if the wedding has a perfect venue, a super good looking couple completely in love, family and friends genuinely excited and happy for them, overwhelming speeches, our job is basically being there and capturing all!

I cannot be happier with the results!

Shannon and Morgan Wedding at The Resort at Pedregal, Cabo San Lucas

Part of this job is always trying to think and make things different.  We need to find creative methods to express feelings and tell your history in the best way.  This time, we thought high… literally!  We offer to Shannon and Morgan having an helicopter to make some aerial shots for the processional and photo session.  They fortunately accepted the offer, and we cannot be happier with the result!

The Gangnam style during the party was planned by them!  We are not responsable for that part! ;). We loved how it turned out!

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 Magaña (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!!
