We get by with a little help from our friends....

There is something magical about the Lake District.  It's one part of the UK that always seems like it could be in a totally different country and reminds us in ways of both the Austrian mountains and even Oregon or Washington State.  It has a calm about it that is simply beautiful.  No wonder Justin and Kate decided to get married there, the venue overlooking the beautiful South Lakes.

After meeting lots of times over many years, but never actually getting together, these two actors finally let fate unite them while auditioning for the same play in London.  From that moment on, their love for each other has not just grown, but become absolute.  They can't bear to be apart, and it really shows.

The second we met them, we instantly loved them and felt like we had know them for years.  We could not be happier that our newest friends tied the knot and we got to share it with them.  So, congratulations to our friends, the talented actors, writers and all around awesome people, Mr. and Mrs. McDonald.  Ready to see the trailer?  Us too!

Featured! Wedding Ideas Magazine Blog...

What a great week! There is so much going on over here, and we love it. Yesterday, the May issue of Wedding Ideas Magazine came out, which features us so beautifully in an 8-page spread! We also have images sprinkled throughout the entire magazine, which is an added, unexpected bonus! If you haven't seen it yet, make sure you run out to buy a copy so I can sign it for you... kidding, but I would if you wanted me to... but still kidding... If you are outside of the UK, check out yesterday's blog post to see the full feature.

So, today, we were told that WI decided to feature Craig and Sam's wedding on their blog too! The post takes you behind the scenes of Craig and Sam's first dance (amazing!), which was choreographed by the lovely, and very talented Kerry, owner of KLM Diamond Choreography. They were nice enough to feature the film we did with Kerry too, so it is a double rainbow for us (what does it meannnnn?!)

STUDIO 1208 is featured on Wedding Ideas Magazine's blog

Anyway, jump on over to Wedding Ideas Mag's blog to read the full post, HERE! As always, a huge thanks to Alice from Wedding Ideas!

Jackson's Egg-cellent Adventure...

This year, Easter was an extra fun day - it was the first time Jackson was old enough to hunt for eggs, and one of my besties, Auntie Sarah, was in town for a visit!  We were so excited, and it didn't take him long to become a professional egg finder.

His excited little face just kills me!

Featured! Rock My Wedding...

It is so rad when you shoot a wedding and become really good friends with the bride and groom - it seems like we do that a lot!  With Kate and Andy, it felt like we knew them well immediately, it was so comfortable!  We are so happy that they trusted us to tell their story - this wedding was one of the most emotional, special events we have ever been a part of, and on Wednesday, it was featured on one of the UK's most popular wedding blogs, Rock My Wedding!

I really, really encourage you to read the post, written by Kate, herself.  You will get an idea of how awesome the day was, how awesome Kate and Andy are, how so many people came together to pull it all off, and why it was such an emotional day.

Special thanks to our good friend Lee Allen and all of the fantastic vendors involved in producing such a perfect day.   Of course, a huge thank you to the entire RMW team - Adam, you're a gem!
