Grace ‘ Jason – Same Day Edit (Honolulu, HI)

What a crazy fun day! :)

Short back story : Grace was referred to me by a wedding cinematography colleague who was unavailable to film her wedding. After replying to the initial consultation email, I get a reply that said, “RANDY?!??”. I was a bit taken back and was like, “Uhh…yeah?”. LOL. It turns out that Grace was a friend of mine that I met during her graduation from trade school and only realized after I emailed her back who I was. I didn’t know it was her either as all this time I thought she had a different last name, haha. I told her in passing that I shot weddings and this was my career, but seeing as how we didn’t talk very often, she forgot my website address and didn’t know how to get in contact with me. Errrrrr….. Well after catching up, meeting her fiance Jason, and talking about what she was looking for in a wedding film, the rest is history.

Grace and Jason tied the knot overlooking Waikiki Beach at the Hyatt. The wedding was a well executed affair thanks to the tireless efforts of Taryn Magalianes from “A Touch of You” Event planning and Grace’s brother Brandon, who makes a cameo during the same day edit film preparing the centerpieces for the gorgeous looking reception. I want to say publicly to Taryn : THANK YOU for all the help in the months leading up to the wedding and especially on the wedding day! I’ve worked with great planners and not so great planners and Taryn is definitely in the GREAT category :). Great job to Erin and Brian who pulled thru and helped me pull off this super time constrained SDE as well as the photographer Brian Jones from iDream Images for always being a class act to work with. Here’s the photo from the wedding : Grace + Jason Wedding Photos

Back to the wedding info, the girls are all in the beauty field and are very knowledgeable in Hair and Makeup. So naturally they would all end up being each others makeup artist. It was quite a site seeing Grace play both vendor and bride at the same time. She actually said that she felt like she was working rather than feel like she was getting married. And of course I couldn’t put her doing makeup and hair into the SDE as she wasn’t wearing any at the time. I’m also sure she would kill me if I did, LOL. To make the day more stressful interesting for this time constrained editor, she was also fashionably late to the 1st look + photosession ;). Thanks Grace, haha.

Well enough babbling, here’s Grace and Jason’s Same Day Edit :

Eunice ‘ Prince – E-session Teaser Film (Brooklyn, NY)

With E&P’s wedding day fast approaching, we wanted to put out a nice teaser film for their guests to build more anticipation for their big day. They wanted to incorporate things that happened in their daily lives. The section in which she showcases her dance skills was one of my favorite scenes to shoot, being a fellow dancer myself. A few of her dance troupe members from isa[dance] were cool enough to dance with Eunice the night we arrived (despite it being SUPER late) and bust out a special dance routine made especially for this film.

This was my first time in the big apple and I was happy to spend it creating this piece. Got to explore the city briefly as well as visit B&H photo video. 2 huge store levels of photo/video gear….I’m proud to say I walked out doing minimal damage to my bank account ;). Thanks for James Pizarro from red Bicycle Media for the assist and Brian Jones from iDream Images for his help. It was a LONG 7 hour drive for us and we turned around a day after and made the same drive back to Ohio. Then, the next day after we got back, I made the drive back with Brian Marks to Staten Island to film another wedding. I’ll share that one as soon as it’s done :). Brian Jones shot the engagement photos, you can see them here : Eunice & Prince – Engagement Session Photos

Flying in Ohio

Here is a couple of shots taken when I was “flying” in Ohio. The venue was the beautiful Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens. One of the nicest outdoor wedding venues I’ve shot at. Thanks to Brian Jones of iDream Media for hooking it up with the awesome stills! I had a great time shooting the wedding alongside him, a true class act and I cant recommend him enough if you’re out on that side of the country and need photography ;). Check out his site and oogle at the pretty pictures.

Here’s the photos from the wedding : Michelle and Landon

Red ‘ Virgil – Same Day Edit

This is a wedding I filmed and flew steadicam for a few months ago. I shot alongside Waikiki Video Pro and handled most of the filming while they cut the Same Day Edit. This was my 2nd time breaking out the steadicam for a wedding and I was very excited how the footage came out. They had some incredible performances during the reception with a Jabbawockeez style routine not to mention the EPIC grand entrance and first dance.

Enjoy
