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!

1,000 Paper Cranes // Brandi ‘ Reid – Same Day Edit (Honolulu, HI)

It’s Japanese legend that anyone who folds 1,000 paper cranes will be granted a wish. Be it long life, healing, or success. In regards to weddings, it is said that the folder (or folders in this case) is wishing 1,000 years of happiness and prosperity to the couple. Needless to say, I’m always impressed and taken aback by the site of the paper cranes as I just imagine of how much time was spent as a labor of love folding all those birds.

Brandi and Reid were fantastic to work with. Knowing them and how gracious they are, it’s no surprise that they had a quite a number of people show up in support of their union, around 300+ at their reception! I wish I had more time to fit all the amazing things that happened during the reception in the same day edit, such as Reid’s surprise performance to Brandi with a song that brought the house down as well as the words of wisdom from their friend Jen who was a great officiant :). Her UH football to a wedding analogy was very well received, lol. To Brandi and Reid, from the team and myself, thank you for your hospitality throughout the day and for choosing us for your Hawaii Wedding Cinematography needs :). This was also another collaboration with James Pizarro from my sister studio on the east coast, redbicyclemedia.com. Always a pleasure having you.

Without further delay, here’s their same day edit that we displayed for them at their reception. ENJOY!

CCm accepted into Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book!


Style
“Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book is a highly edited collection of wedding service providers – from mom and pop boutiques to A-Listers. Bottom line, these vendors are the best of the best.” Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book

Colour Craft Media is proud to be accepted into Style Me Pretty’s Little Black Book of vendors for Hawaii Wedding Cinematography! It’s a real honor as anyone who wishes to advertise with them must go through an arduous approval and screening process which involves evaluation on design, work, and personality of your company. They saw our work, loved it, and immediately pushed us through the process.

CCm aims to be a well designed and fashionable cinematography studio without sacrificing the individuality of each couple. Style Me Pretty’s editor (Abby Larson) also feels the same way about design. She feels it’s all about putting your own personality and style into your wedding and it should give your guests a view of who you are as a couple. Your wedding design should be based on what you as a couple love and not what someone else says is chic or “in” at the time. It’s such a great feeling to be associated with a blog like Style Me Pretty who cares about the quality of vendors they allow to advertise and be a part of their Little Black Book rather than just opening the door to anyone who has the cash to pony up.

Take a look at their blog if you’re looking for some design inspiration. There’s quite a bit of swagger being tossed around there :).
