A Walk In The Park

Days leading up to their wedding, family and friends were coming in from all around the country to celebrate with them together. In the first evening we spent with Rena & Gaurav in both Brampton and Toronto, Ontario, we were welcomed by both warm friends and family and a spectacular storm (really, the storm of the summer). We felt like part of the family. Us, being in two different cities at the same time, were experiencing such similar events – almost in complete parallel with the Mehndi ceremonies and dancing.

Spending the afternoon with Rena & Gaurav by the waterfront, getting to know more about how they came together had inspired their film to be a snapshot of two significant moments in time. It brings their relationship history together and ties in traditional celebrations into a fitting portrait. These two are completely made for each other; if a vegetarian and meat lover can be brought together by their differences and distances become a small obstacle, there in lies a testimony of true love.

It was also a blast working with Projected Life Photography. Being instant friends with a total stranger is our definition of a good person to work with.

The last two minutes of this film comes together the same way we felt spending time with Rena & Gaurav. We connected with them and at the end, we only wanted to know more. We’re so happy to be able to share their feature with all of you.

A Warm Country Wedding

Dave & Kerri are a really fun, adventurous and light-hearted couple and we are excited to share their highlights film with you. We were blessed with beautiful warm weather, which made it a breeze for the couple as they travelled in a vintage truck (without the comfort of a/c as they didn’t have it back in the day). We loved seeing them riding down city streets and prairie highways. All of the little things throughout the day really grabbed our attention, like when Dave took some time decorating the truck with ‘just married’ flags and a heart shaped signs for the tailgate and when the guys had to shine up the truck after a short bout of rain in the morning.  We took a trip back to the same place they had their gorgeous engagement session (check those out here), which gave us a great backdrop. Thanks to Troy for filming with us that day, and it was a pleasure (as always) to work with Rachael & Brian of Luckygirl.

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.
