Water works // Mel ‘ Justin – Love Story + Same Day Edit (Honolulu, HI)

Mel and Justin..hmm..where to start? Well first, Mel came to me about 6 months ago saying that she felt she found a diamond in the rough. She was searching and searching for the right cinematographer but everywhere she turned, everybody was booked. After looking at everyone’s work, she learned that there was a difference between wedding videography and wedding cinematography. She finally decided to search for ” Hawaii Wedding Cinematography ” and ended up on this site. Noted below is part of her original correspondence with me after checking our availability :

“Hi Randy,

Thanks for getting back to me fast, I’m so scared because most of the videographers that I inquired so far are all booked! I only have 7 more months to plan my wedding and I couldn’t be more concerned about anything else, but my videographer! My fiancee Justin and I are two fun loving people that want to really give a twist from the traditional slideshow to a love story w/ ceremony highlights! We enjoy a playful and modern style and I got the chance to look at your work and I am very impressed! ”

Needless to say, working with her and Justin was nothing but an awesome experience. The love story posted below was pretty much all their idea. VERY creative couple :). Now the title of this blog post will be apparent after watching their same day edit. It was one of the most emotional weddings I’ve ever attended and I must say, the vows got me very close to shedding a tear ;). I sincerely want to say THANK YOU to Mel + Justin for putting their full trust and support behind CCm during this whole project, it was our pleasure being your wedding cinematographers. Special shoutout to Brian from red Bicycle Media (his first time visiting our beautiful islands) as well as Princeton and Erin for their help throughout the day.

As usual, please feel free to comment if you dig the films! Enjoy!

    Thank you so much Randy for everything! You truly captured the important aspects that Justin and I wanted to share with everyone! Hard work but a great payoff! Everyone’s been asking if they could get a copy of the video and i’m sooooo happy that you have it on your blog instead of making 200 copies! Relief! Anyways thanks again for everything you truly are the best!

    Hi Randy. I just wanted to thank you for being a part of the most lovely wedding of the century and capturing the beauty and love that these two lovebirds exude. You and your team did an incredible job and I will definitely pass your name to any others I know of that are in need of your services. I am truly amazed at how beautiful the videos were. They are so moving. I wish you much prosperity for many years to come. I am so proud to pass this on to all of my friends and family here in the bay area. Take care. Carleen (Mel’s mom)

    LOVED THE VIDEOS!!! My daughter, Ocean, and I watched this video together. We laughed, we cried, and enjoyed every minute of it… If I could do it again, I would definately have a video like this. This was way better than just pictures flashing on the screen. We wish you all the best, congratulations Mel and Justin!!!
