Rory + Alexis

The crew and I were able to spend the weekend in beautiful Bass Lake, CA to shoot Rory and Alexis’ wedding. It was a beautiful venue and an even more beautiful couple. Enjoy their wedding highlight film!

Sonya + Steve

Last year, we filmed Sonya and Steve’s wedding in Pleasanton, CA for Love Story Pictures. It was an awesome, cool day with nice weather and colorful cloud cover. Koreans know how to throw a wedding!

John + Huong

Two weeks ago, we filmed this video for Love Story Pictures. John and Huong were an awesome couple who ironically had a huge rivalry between them. John is a huge Oakland A’s fan while Huong is a huge San Francisco Giants fan. (Go Giants!) It was quite the theme of the day which comically made its way into their vows. It was a gorgeously day in San Anselmo, CA which you can see by watching their highlight film. Enjoy!

Ysmael + Jovelyn: A Highlight Film

Ysmael and Jovelyn’s love story begins in middle school in band which escalated into a life fulfilling commitment… with a Disney twist. Being two of the biggest Disney fanatics (along with myself), they were able to create the cutest, fun-filled wedding day that I’ve had the pleasure of being a part of. But none of that measures up to their dorky, playful banter with each other that was such a joy to be around. Their spirited charisma is nothing short of contagious. Get personal with these two in their cheerful highlight film!

Filmed by Adriel Callao, Rinna Pera and Nhung Dao.

I just want to start off by saying I love these two.  They were so easy to film and fun to be around during the wedding day and out.  Special thanks to Christina and Dan, the photo crew, for taking these awesome pictures!

Stephen + Kathleen: A Highlight Film

These two are probably one of my favorite couples of 2013. They are so fun loving and genuinely good people and that’s not entirely based on the fact that they treated me out for Johnny Rockets. A true classic story of two high school sweethearts who couldn’t let each other go. Their wedding was held at one of my favorite places to shoot weddings, the Grand Island Mansion on the river. Enjoy the highlight film!

Casey + Kelley: A Highlight Film

Kelley and I used to work together while I was a medical courier for Medical Couriers Inc. Her family owns and operates the business in Sacramento. The Reiff family has been one of the friendliest and the most welcoming people I’ve come to know and you’ll have a hard time finding a family more loving. Before the wedding, I haven’t seen the Reiff family in years since I left their company so it was unbelievably refreshing to see their faces again. I felt like a relative that left for college and now came back after graduation. And with everyone welcoming me as part of the family, I almost forgot I was their videographer.

It was a fun-filled, beautiful wedding and it made it so much easier to have a couple so easy-going. Congratulations to you guys and I hope Hawaii was amazing!

Oahu 2013

Oahu 2013

So I just came back from Oahu for shooting yet another wedding. I’ve learned everyone who says they don’t like Hawaii are all liars. All of you. This really was one of the best trips I’ve had the opportunity to take in my life and I consider myself lucky enough and blessed to have done so. Other than enjoy the view and great food which helped me gain the unwanted, massive weight that attached to me coming back home, I was able to meet up with family and friends who I haven’t seen much of lately. But most importantly, I was able to meet my 9 month old niece, Kaili. She is by far the happiest baby I’ve ever seen and I miss her dearly since I left. My traveling companion was Tatiana Kaiser, a very close friend who also helped me shoot the wedding. We hiked to the top of mountains, swam with ginormous fish where we spotted an octopus and got kicked by a sea turtle (yes, you read that right), went to 5 different beaches, tried a number of different kinds of poke, got stung by a Portuguese Man O’War while body surfing, had good AND bad hawaiian shaved ice and had the time of our lives. Enjoy the pictures we took! Hopefully, they do some justice to the Hawaiian Islands and that they inspire all you liars to admit you would love to be there too.

CJ + Samantha: A Highlight Film

Hi everybody!

CJ and Sam have been good friends from college. They’ve been together since I’ve known them and have always been a pleasure to be around. CJ being in a dance crew called Step Boys (you may have heard of them from America’s Best Dance Crew) and Sam being a very talented singer who is very much involved in her church, they are very energetic and fun! It was already pretty comfortable working with them knowing them for so long. They made creating this video very easy with all of the emotion they included into their wedding. Even though the day included 109 degree weather, it was definitely worth all of the sweat that we all produced. haha The Love Story Pictures crew and I had a great time shooting this wedding which also had a surprise guest MC: DTRIX of Youtube.com and Step Boys. It was a great wedding and I’m very glad the crew and I were a part of it. Congratulations, CJ and Sam!

Patrick + Monica: A Highlight Film

Hi folks! Here’s another film that the crew and I shot earlier this year for Love Story Pictures. It took place in a very isolated, calm, peaceful place in the woods with the city in the background that you can view from between the trees. It was an awesome venue and it’s peaceful environment set up a perfect setting for Patrick and Monica’s wedding.

These two were so easy to work with. They were both excited for the day. Rightfully so. Seeing Patrick and Monica together deemed a similar feeling when you smash the two sides of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich together and experience the amazing collaboration these two make. They belong together. They quite literally couldn’t keep their eyes off each other! It was a very pleasant day and evening shooting their wedding and, here, I want to share what we experienced with these two. Enjoy!
