I'm trying to develop a new video service––the iPhone wedding. Yesterday I tried it out on Jared and Julia's beautiful wedding in Logan, Utah. The goal is to only use iOS devices to make the video plus the challenge of making the final video that day. I shot the video with my iPhone 6 plus equipped with a Beastgrip case, wide angle lens and Glidecam stabilizer. Immediately after the Temple exit, I airdropped the footage over to my iPad where I graded, edited and uploaded the video––all with in six hours of shooting the video! I think people will like the idea of their special day being shot on an iPhone. It's a product that has marked our generation.
Weddings are so nice, pleasant, full of happy feelings and . . . CRAZY! With months of stressful planning, cake testing and color coordinating (not too mention the empty bank) no wonder people need to just let loose. Jessica and Ben's San Francisco wedding was exactly that. Apparently all of their friends and relatives love to dance and have a good time.
I hooked into filming Sandy and Josafat's wedding by way of several serendipitous events. It all started shooting a pro bono video for a local cafe in San Cristóbal, Mexico. And it turned out that the cafe owner's wife is a wedding photographer. Naturally we hit it off and she offered to put me in contact with the bride-to-be. I'm still amazed that this opportunity arose.
Sandy and Josafat's wedding was exquisitely festive. I witnessed a beautiful ceremony where family and friends honored the new couple. And I also witnessed the high voltage of a Mexican wedding reception—I couldn't keep up with them! I had to leave early at 3am. Yes, that was indeed leaving the party earlier.
So, when making the videos I tried to represent the serene respect and incessant energy the wedding had. From funk, to tequilla shots, to cherished moments, to risqué mariachi bands this wedding had it all. Congratulations Sandy and Josafat!
Kevin and Kylie are those people you hate––because they are so beautiful and amazing. They got married in San Diego and I couldn't believe it was winter. The warm air and pleasant sun made this special day unforgettable. There's nothing quite like the beach, warm weather and a wedding.

The San Diego Temple seem from above (and below).
Some things are just meant to go together—peanut butter and jelly, iPhone and iMac, burritos and weddings.
Erika and Clark celebrated their "funky fresh" wedding in Maryland as well as Utah. They hired the Sweeto Burrito truck to cater their reception. While they were on cloud nine, I was eating my heart out on burritos. Their wedding has definitely been one of my favorites.
Here is the temple video.
I was in D.C. this past weekend shooting a wedding. I got some great shots of the temple both from the air and on the ground and I thought I would make a little vignette to share with you! The actually wedding videos will be done shortly––complete with drone footage. Stay tuned!
