Where to begin on this one…wow. Jessica & Brandon are photographers from Windsor, Canada. They’re already married. They contacted us to make a promotional video in our Engagement Film style that they could use to promote their photo business. We dig that ’cause there are no rules when it comes to making cool stuff and having fun with cool people. 🙂

So they flew in from Canada and met us at a remote location in the Sierra Mountains of California at June Lake. Talk about a rad spot! We had such an amazing time. Mountains, lakes, bonfires, canoes, torches, cliff dives…and the list goes on.


 

I think I have to create a new category called “Hybrid” for films like this. It’s a wedding/engagement combo, and I like it. It all started when the forecast called for rain on Matt and Aubrey’s wedding day. So between that and sharing time with the photographer, I decided to meet up with them a week before the wedding and get some fun shots ahead of time like an engagement film. Well, turned out to be something pretty awesome.


 

Melissa looks like she just stepped out of an Anthropologie catalog. Ryan is a New York City fire fighter. This engagement film was shot and edited just a few days before their wedding in Long Island, NY. Times Square, a climb up the Brooklyn Bridge, Westbury Gardens (where Ryan proposed) and a few other secret spots. Melissa & Ryan nailed it and we couldn’t be happier.


 

Mara and Steven were so fun. All shot locally in a single day and paired with photos. You can check it all out on the Iris and Light post here.


 

You might think we filmed Anh & John’s engagement film over the course of a year. But as it turned out, we had all four seasons — a spring grove, summer sun, an autumn meadow, and winter snow — all in less than 2 days. Sometimes magic happens. And we’re happy we were there for it.


 

This one kinda started it out for us all, but we still like it. We ran a promo for a quick shoot around Sacramento and surrounding areas to create this golden, stylish and fun engagement film.


 

I’ve never seen this side of San Francisco before. We shot this whole thing in the middle or on the outer skirts of the big city. David and Lisa were geared up for an incredible day and were complete ballers. Literally. It was cold and dark at the end of the day and they still wanted to do some b-ball shots. Not to mention that they treated us to some delicious food, this trip was definitely worth it.
