18 Sep Afeef & Moniza – Short Wedding Film from San Diego, CA

We enjoy destination weddings and traveling to tell visual stories from different cultures. The Muslim Wedding of Afeef and Moniza in San Diego, California was no exception. The ceremony was beautiful and cultural, the cocktail hour had tacos (very different) and the reception had churros (not a wedding cake). We loved that touch of uniqueness that Afeef and Moniza applied to their wedding. Hyatt Regency Mission Bay Spa and Marina Hotel is a perfect place to get married. Our San Diego Wedding Cinematography team did an outstanding job capturing this beautiful wedding. Enjoy the Short Film....

16 Aug Rohan & Semmy – LIVE Same Day Edit

Our challenge here was to take our Same Day Edits onto another level – have the Same Day Edit transition into shots that are in REALTIME during the First Dance at the Grand Island Mansion Wedding! We mixed live from our Drone in the sky, Crane camera, Close up camera and Stabilizer camera creating an amazing experience for the wedding couple and party. This was challenging, but we pulled it off seamlessly....

27 Jun Final Cut Pro X 10.3.4 Crashing on Relink – FIX

Have you ever had Apple Final Cut Pro X crash when it's being relinked? I have had that happen plenty of time. It's not pleasant, but most importantly, I as a wedding videographer, it wastes my time.I have a few editors that help me with my longer wedding documentary edits. I send them files and a project file, they edit the docuenmtnary edit, and I get the project back at the end. My job is now to check the project before exporting and uploading. But I've been running into issues of Final Cut Pro X crashing when I press relink.Here are a few things to note: We are both using the same exact footage. When relinking, the footage goes past the "validation" in FCPX successfully. BUT when I press "relink" - Final Cut Pro crashes. Restarting FCPX freezes it. And if I do have success, I am accompanied with some shots that are "black" and show up as "no data." This is the worst scenario.I have spent a lot of time trouble shooting this exact scenario and with trail and error, finally found a system (or workflow) that seems to have been working with FCPX 10.3.4 each and every time I run into this situation.The steps are simple. Watch the video if you want to be walked though the process, but like I said - it's simple.Open the FCPX project that requires relinking. Open the timeline that you need to relink. Select all of the footage (cmd+a) and copy it (cmd+c). Create a new Library. Let me repeat. Create a new Library (not an event). In the new FCPX Library, create a new project with the setting you need. Paste (cmd+v) on the new project (this will be pasting the copied timeline from the other un-relinked project). Once everything is on the timeline, you can now relink. Select the new FCPX Library, and go to File > Relink Files. You should have success (There are a few catches though, especially if you have multiple projects). This works really well with having one project. My video does go a bit in...

08 Jun Owen & Kelly – Short Film

“Open your eyes. It’s a beautiful life. It’s so beautiful.” The lyrics of the song express the wedding of Kelly & Owen perfectly. This wedding was beautiful at the Triple S Ranch (SSS Ranch). The bride, the venue, the gnarled walnut tree, the vows, the flowers - everything. I loved capturing every detail and I think we pulled it off well. I personally love Napa Valley and when we get a chance to film a wedding in the wine country, I get excited. Additionally, we LOVE working with couples that LOVE our work, especially when they express it to us. It secretly allows us to go into a higher gear when filming their wedding. Enjoy the story of the day that Kelly and Owen professed their love to each other....

23 May Chris & Anna – Film

Chris and Anna contacted us a few months before their wedding and told us that we were their first choice to book for wedding photography and wedding videography. We love couples that absolutely love our work and give us the 100% creative control over everything (well - just the Healdsburg wedding videography and wedding photography). We were able to capture their wedding freely and be inspired by the story that surrounded us through out the day.As we headed to Healdsburg, California in the morning to Madrona Manor, we loved the scenery and the rolling mountains of the valley. We arrived a bit early to start capturing some drone shots of the venue to build some nice opening shots for the film. The wedding itself was laid back and really fun. The decorations were amazing. Hearing the nephews speech at the reception, made every crack up. We built the film around their story.Enjoy the story of the day that Chris & Anna professed their love to each other....

20 May Dan & Pamela – Short Film

Located in California's finest wine country, Napa Valley, Brix was a perfect location for Dan & Pamela's Wedding. The beautiful couple danced away in the sunset with gorgeous vineyards and gardens in the background. Me and my team loved filming the nature and spectacular views of the Mayacamas mountains. The heat was there to challenge us, but I love how we pulled off an amazing story of this couple. As a Napa Valley wedding videographer, I love to tell stories in these enchanted valleys....

19 May Sunit & Priti – Engagement

Every couple has a place and time in their memory of how they met and what they did together for the first time together. Sunit took Priti on their first date to Scoma’s restaurant in Sausalito for a delicious dinner and their love story started from there. I’ve photographed at Sausalito before but this time it was super special as I saw the connection of this couple to many of the places we would stop and shoot at. ...
