The life of this wedding videographer is tough, well not really, in fact we have had the busiest fall ever and traveled to some amazing weddings and events.
September brought repeated trips to the Sonoma & Napa Vallies for the wine country wedding of Matt & Odessa and a very special project we are working on with Chef Pajo Bruich and Anani Lawson, formerly of The French Laundry, to create a short film about their collaboration of food & wine talents. The film is set to be debuted late winter 2011.
October started out with a bang with the absolutely fabulous wedding of Ben & Amy at the San Francisco Ferry Building, expertly designed and executed by the awesome Alison Ulshoffer Events and scrumptiously catered by Paula LeDuc Fine Catering. Stay tuned for their wedding trailer that we are working on as we speak.
We filmed the adorable wedding of Kristen & Casey at the Historic Bee Bennett House in Placerville and we wrapped up the month with another trip to the Sonoma Wine Country to film the wedding of Evan & Kamila Gerber. Evan & Kamila tied the knot in sunset splendor at the beautiful Paradise Ridge Winery in Santa Rosa, CA. Just a few stills we pulled from our footage which is a good inclination that the film should be stunning.
In November, things really started heating up with a trip south of the border to film Clark & Sarah’s Mexican destination wedding at the Hotel Playa Fiesta in Puerto Vallarta. Another fabulously planned and designed wedding by destination wedding planner, Alison Ulshoffer Events, this wedding married California style and sophistication with the rustic and authentic experience of Jalisco culture and hospitality. We had the pleasure of shooting alongside photographer Penny Sylvia, also hailing from Sacramento, to capture all the nuances of this very special destination wedding.
Less than 24 hours after returning from Puerto Vallarta, I was headed back to the airport to catch a plane to Florida where I was about to meet up with 40+ female filmmakers from all over the world for a 5 day workshop in the Bahamas. At the POSH workshop we had the unique opportunity to network with and learn from some of the most influential women filmmakers in our industry. Stay tuned for a film we whipped up about women filmmakers.
Upon returning back to California, I wrapped up the learning schedule by attending an all day, hands-on, Ray Roman Films workshop put on by the Bay Area Professional Videographers Association. Needless to say, I was bubbling forth information to the LoveSpun team, infusing them with all the tips and tricks I gleaned in my travels. After 3 months of non-stop filming it seems, the real work now begins. We will be working our hardest to create new and exciting films to share with you soon
