Cityscape Highschool Sweethearts

After meeting Marianne and Mark for the first time, you would think they just started dating. They’re both so excited for any opportunity they get to be together. It’s even more special to see a couple who have been together for so many years still going through the same emotions you would typically see in a couple who just started dating (both nervous and excited). We spent an evening with Marianne and Mark talking about their relationship and how they first met. Mark had this huge smile on his face, pausing after thinking about the moment he knew Marianne was the one. Memories came rushing back. I loved seeing how those thoughts came back and translated so well in his speech at their reception. Marianne had equally as much to say about when she knew Mark was the one. What began years ago in high-school brought them to this day; the beginning of their life together. Over the years ahead, I’m sure these two downtown-loving city dwellers will continue exploring more and more big cities as they embark on that journey together. This film is another joyous memory they’ve helped create.

Ottawa meets Toronto

Rena and Gaurav have one of the most interesting stories on how they met. It wasn’t just miles of land that started between them, it was also their dietary lifestyles! These two are special; they’ve both been through a lot together and anytime you were near them you could just feel how in love they are. We spent some time with them before their wedding celebrations took place (which had spanned over the course of multiple days) and were able to dive a bit further into their story. Gaurav had seen our work a while ago, via short films up on Stillmotion’s blog and Vimeo. He’s a talented photographer and filmmaker, so on many levels putting their film together was both a challenge and a joy. The trailer (hopefully) paints a picture of a much grander story about to be unveiled. It’s hard holding back all of the great things to say and talk about the experience we had… which will come later. Until then :)

Dancing, rain or shine

Well, here we are on a brand new site for Paperback Films. 2011 has been a fantastic year for us, and to help break in this brand new blog, we wanted to share a new film. Late last summer, we met John and Rhosan. Our first impressions were “this is a couple chalf full of energy”. They both instantly knew what they were after and we were happy to have had the chance to work with them and be a part of their special day together. It was so fun going back and forth with different ideas for their films. Earlier in the spring, we had filmed a Portraiture of them as a couple (check that out here) which gave us a chance to dive further into who they were – outside of their actual wedding event. Rain or shine, these two make the best of any occasion and always have fun.

We didn’t present a Same Day Edit, but instead presented their Portraiture film to all of their guests; all watching together for the first time. It was a perfect introduction to the evening and we had a similar exciting experience as showing a Same Day Edit. Coralee of Red Photo Co was so great to work with (she always is) and it was a treat having Rebecca there as well. Funny story; these girls will do just about anything to get a good shot. There’s a little hint of what I’m referring to in the bts photos :) I look forward to many more adventures at more weddings with those ladies. Thanks to Cody who helped film their wedding with us. Hope you enjoy, and while you’re at it – take a look around, drop us a line and leave a comment or two. Music licensed through With Etiquette.
