And If It's All I Do, Then I Do It For You...

Suzanne and Mark's gorgeous destination wedding in Crete photo by STUDIO 1208
When you have a job or you run a business, you get into it for lots of reasons… for some, it's the money, or a passion, the flexibility, the challenge, to make a difference - the list goes on. However, one thing that people don't usually think about is the fact that they could make some amazing friends. We are super lucky in our work that we get to make tons of new friends with every wedding we shoot. I can't really believe that we have made so many close friends by doing our work - we work with the coolest, best people, and we get to keep them in our lives after all the work is done - BONUS!

Suzanne and Mark are no exception. These two are as amazing as they come - we are already planning a night out with them in the coming new year. They have a great story, and the love they have for each other is so deep. They are hilarious, and I really do think that laughter is one thing that keep relationships thriving.

We loved spending time in Crete with them, their families and friends - we had an amazing time, in fact! Their film shows just how much fun they are, and how much laughter and love surrounded this wedding. Hope you enjoy the full film, and if you missed it, make sure you check out their beautiful trailer too!

Never Look Back, Never Give Up...

Laura and Iván's breathtaking destination wedding in Tuscany by STUDIO 1208

Laura and Iván's wedding was so beautiful - to be surrounded by the Tuscan countryside was a dream, but when you combine that with a bunch of Scots and a bunch of Spaniards, the charm level was off the charts! Then add in the incredible talent that is Laura, who made everything - hand illustrated all the printed goods, and brought the wedding to life through her beautiful drawings…it was just perfect. I share with you their lovely full length wedding film, and I will be wishing that I was back in Tuscany basking in the sun on this freezing, rainy, holy hail-ish day in England.

I Wanna Lock In Your Love...

Oh Liz and Iain, we just love you guys! What an amazing day in a beautiful venue, surrounded by people who just want to have a really good time. That's what it's all about though in the end, isn't it… surrounding yourself with the people who will do your hair, have a little cry with you, crack up with you remembering your past lives, and dance their asses off like lunatics with you. Weddings are about the people, the memories, and the story, and these two nailed it. Enjoy their film trailer - we can't what to share the rest!

We Can Waste Time Together...

Well, what can I even say about this wedding, about these people who I love so dearly, they are like family at this point?! Priscilla and I met in grade school - yes, the two of us playing in our Catholic school uniforms on the playground together, chasing boys and probably doing some kind of cheerleading and gymnastics (take it easy, boys!). We lost touch over the years, but she found me again when the time was right - after her and Misha got engaged. I am so glad she did - she is everything, and Misha, well, that guy is just as legit as they come.

This wedding was off the chain, basically. Do you guys like food? Good wine, perhaps? Desserts that make you want to cry because you know how bad, yet fantastic they are? Well, so do they, and it just so happens that they know some people who can make all of our culinary dreams come true…and they did, big time! Let's also have a mention to the epic dance party complete with a sing-a-long, (minorly awkward) story-telling, beautiful poem reading and amazing rap serenade wrapped up with an amazing band (and a badass Matron of Honor).

AND can we PLEASE talk about how beautiful these tow creatures are?! Good LORD.

We love them. LOVE THEM! Here is their trailer

Welcome to the good life....

This job is awesome. I am never afraid to think it or say it, because we really do live the good life. Is it hard work? Yes. Is there tons of editing? Yes. Do we get to work with awesome people who trust us to capture the most special day of their life and become friends with them after? Absofreakingloutley. The coolest thing is, it's our clients that make it so great.

I actually thought about this while in Crete shooting Mark and Suzanne's wedding. We had just dragged them into an abandoned building by the side of the road, and watched them have this amazing 'just married' loved up moment, and were then driving with them on a quad bike into their wedding reception. The sea breeze was in our faces, and the incredible sunset we had just witnessed was finally fading to and orangey glow. It was simply magical, a real life story book ending for two incredible new friends who had just said 'I do' in front of their closest people. All I could think as the road rushed by was, this is our life. We created this. We get to do this ALL the time. In a few hours we will most likely be downing Raki shots at the bar, and dancing the night away with these awesome people! How lucky are we?

I can't even begin to tell you how much we love these guys. We got to stay in beautiful Crete, right there with them, their friends and family, and they just accepted us right into the group. Like, never skipped beat. Working with amazing people like Mark and Sooz is what gives us the most reward in our life, let alone work. You push us to create, and so we thank you with all our hearts. I can't wait to show you the full film and pictures... but for now, lets kick of with the trailer.

Welcome to the good life.
