At the End of the World: Sarah & Steve Engagement

At the End of the World:  With the Mayan calander coming to end in December this year and the predicted "End of the World" Sarah and Steve decided to go all out on their creative Engagement Shoot.

Amanda Wignell (www.awp.co.nz) & I met Sarah & Steve onsite at Transpacific in Mt Wellington, Auckland.  Not your usual or typical Engagement Shoot location, Sarah and Steve wanted an "industrial" feeling and looking shoot, and boy did this surprise and excite us when we got there.  We quickly got into the groove of a rustic, boy meets girl kind of shoot and that then became the "End of the World" theme you see here.

The song we found "End of the World" by Ingrid Michaelson (licensed through www.songfreedom.com) could not have been a better fit and tells exactly the story we hoped to tell through the visuals.

We had so much fun making this short film with Sarah & Steve.  Its certainly different and we love different.  Its also a wonderful thing to think about "where would you meet your other half at the end of the world".  LOVE!

Becky & Andrew: On a Night Like This

Becky & Andrew, well where do we start. What an amazing, beautiful couple and what a gorgeous day this was. The wind blew and the rain threatened but as can so often be the case, the weather held firm for what was a stunning day and is a stunning film. Becky is English and Andrew a Kiwi and hearing their story of meeting and falling in love is captured in the gorgeous film.

What made this wedding extra special for us was that Becky & Andrew had chosen to do a Save the Date film in late 2011, so we had gotten to know them quite well and new this would be a great day.

Becky’s Mum said to me on their wedding day that she watched this little film every day, at least once and just loved it. Crazy! But I guess when your daughter lives on the other side of the world, its one way of keeping in touch.

Here is Becky & Andrews Save Date film:

And here are Becky’s comments on seeing the wedding film for the first time:

“WOW WOW WOW! Jolyon, the film is amazing. Andrew and I just sat and re-lived our wedding day moment by moment. You have captured so many special moments that we have either forgotten or got missed in the excitement and fast pace of the day. Mum has seen it already, and will no doubt now watch this one every day too! The quality is exceptional, watching it on blu ray made it feel like we were watching ourselves in a movie! We can’t thank you enough for providing an amazing service, and a priceless memory. It is a truly beautiful film and one we will treasure forever. Thank you for capturing our special day for us.”

Denise & Danilo: An Ocean Size Love

Denise and Danilo were such a cute couple to film. What is there to say about this couple other than watch the film. The emotion and love these two have for each other, their faith in God and the Church, this little film has it all. And check out Danilo's tears as his gorgeous Bride walks down the aisle to meet him, its a heart stopper!
