I Will Follow You Into The Dark...

GUYS. This wedding, these people. OMG.

Many of you will remember that we did a huge contest (#HookUpWithStudio1208) giving away free photo and video to a couple last year, and Libby and Ryan were our seriously deserving winners. They smashed it with all of their entries - their friends and family came out of the woodwork to support them, and we were blown away. Fast forward, and we are beyond grateful to have met them, and to now call them (and their friends and family) ours. They are part of our tribe - just the best people you could ever hope to meet, and I can't think of a more appropriate post to share on this day of thanks.

Happy Thanksgiving to you all, and love each other a little more today.

Through All Of Our Years...

This is what it looks like when you marry your best friend - the one who brings you out of your shell, makes it possible for the best in you to shine brightly, and who shows you that life can be the most beautiful, magical thing in the world.

Jessie and Chaz were married at her family home in Hammonton, New Jersey - home of Penza Pies (seriously, you need to eat one...it will change your life). We loved watching these two in the moments in-between... that is where the magic happened, and when you watch this, you will see exactly what I mean!

Trying To Find The In-between...

Laura and Beau are cool AF. Some might call them hipsters, but we call them cultured, artistic people with an appreciation for the finer, thoughtful, handcrafted things in life. Basically, they are the best, and we love to be around them - I want to learn about obscure things from them, and try all the coffee...and I want to go and talk about art. It is so cool being around people with such an appreciation for art, because they treat you like you are special, that it is a privilege to work with you, and that they are genuinely excited to see what you create for and about them. These people inspire the shit out of us, and we were so happy to collab with them.

Here is their wedding film trailer - complete with all the things that make a wedding story great, starting with the people. Can't wait to show you more of this, and can't wait to see these two again for some good times in London!

It's Not Bitter, Just Oh So Sweet...

Anna and Johnny. How do I explain these people? Well, it's easy... the most electric, fun, wild, generous, badass, chic, amazing people ever. That is no joke or exaggeration either - they are incredible, and the people around them are just the same. Never a dull or boring moment with them, and they want everyone to have fun, not just themselves. We love them for this (and so many more reasons)!

Their wedding was in France - the South of France, Provence to be exact. It was pretty much friends only, outside of the small handful of family in attendance, and this wedding reflected everything that they are above. We had the time of our lives celebrating the time of their lives - we never wanted it to end. This also marked the first destination wedding that we brought our whole Studio 1208 squad to (more about that in another post to come), and they smashed it, BIG TIME!

So, the only thing left to do is watch...you won't be disappointed. And her dress... holy moly!

But If You Close Your Eyes...

We shot Katie Perry's wedding!

It's true! Maybe not THAT Katy Perry, but this Katie didn't let us down - she was beautiful, fun, and I'm not sure if she can sing, but she can definitely dance! Luke wasn't too shabby himself... he is one of the coolest, most down to Earth people ever, and his personality is totally engaging...you just want to be around him AND his dance moves! I was so happy that the rain went away for these two and ended up giving us the most spectacular light later in the day - I'm 100% sure someone was watching over these two, and it was absolute magic - they deserved every second of it.

I know I say it all the time, but we really do have the best brides and grooms - not to mention their families and friends, who end up ours. I'm not sure how we have managed to attract all the best people in the world, but thankfully they come to us, and we are beyond lucky to tell their stories and give them the gift of family heirlooms on such a special day.

I love this trailer - it shows how much fun these guys are, and also makes me tear up every time (I am seriously emotional about my people!) Enjoy!
