Double Featured! Sunny and Wally on Bridal Musings...

We are so excited to have this gorgeous wedding featured not once, but twice today on Bridal Musings, our favourite wedding blog!

Sunny and Wally's Malibu Rocky Oaks wedding by STUDIO 1208 featured on Bridal Musings

Sunny and Wally were married on a gorgeous day in Malibu, California at one of the most epic venues we know of, Malibu Rocky Oaks. Located at the top of, well, a mountain in Malibu Canyon, you get a 360 degree view of the entire canyon and more from the property, and the helipad that the ceremony took place on! No joke, it is next level!

We loved shooting this wedding - obviously the location was stunning, but these two, and their people made it over the top amazing...not to mention Sunny's Monique Lhuillier dress made my jaw drop! To see the full features, click HERE for the film, and HERE for the photos.

If you still want to see more, you can check out their full film HERE

Special thanks to my second shooter, Sherri of Sherri J Photography, and to Berlanti from The Elegant Ninja for helping make this day go so perfectly.

UNICEF #EndChildMarriage

UNICEF #EndChildMarriage campaign from Bridal Musings and STUDIO 1208

Everyday, millions of little girls from all over the world are forced to marry adult men. Many of them will die in childbirth, from sexual trauma, or abuse.

UNICEF #EndChildMarriage campaign from Bridal Musings and STUDIO 1208

We are so proud and honored to be a part of this powerful ‪#‎EndChildMarriage‬ campaign with UNICEF and BridalMusings to help shed light on this disturbing subject. We made a powerful film to help spread the word, and are really hoping that it will go viral.



So today, on International Women's Day, we are the voice of the voiceless, and we hope you will be too. Please share this with your friends and family to help spread the word. Can you imagine sending your own daughters, sisters or nieces into the arms of a 40 year old man at just 11 or 12 years old?

To learn more about this and how you can help, please visit the full write up over on BridalMusings

Take A Trip To Mexico...

Eden and Ryan's destination wedding in Mexico. Photo by STUDIO 1208

GUYS! This wedding is so sweet. A very intimate wedding in Mexico that is so thoughtful and well suited to these two people. Both living their lives in the spotlight, it was almost extra special that they almost ran away to get married in front of a handful of their closest friends. In that company, they truly came alive - they whole-heartedly connected with this event and most importantly, with each other.

We are so lucky to get to go on these magical trips. Not only because the destinations are often what dreams are made of, but because we leave there with some of the richest life experiences, and the coolest new friends. We get to tell stories of people experiencing the best that life can give, and we not only get to watch, we get to be a part of it.

I am so proud to call these people friends, and so honored that they chose us to tell their very unique and special story. Watch their full film below, and if you missed Eden and Ryan's trailer, you can watch it HERE
