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.

Chop Sticks & Naan Bread…

On the day of they were calling for rain… well the clouds parted very early and the sky was blue all day long!   Lan & Amit had a Vietnamese/East Indian wedding and we can’t be more excited to share their Same Day Edit.  This blend of cultures made for some very visually stunning details such as Lan’s necklace and henna on her hands and feet.  The sparkles glistening and reflecting from the light are what grab our attention instantly.  Lan & Amit both showed themselves as poised and relaxed throughout the day but definitely showed more of their personalities during the photo shoot with Manny.  There were larger than life smiles and joy as they were letting loose with the bridal party.  One thing you won’t see on the SDE is their first dance due to scheduling, however this was our first glimpse of these two displaying their romantic side dancing with grace and elegance across the floor.

White Horse…

Filming Amit during the Baraat brought out the first signs of exuberant celebrations that would follow throughout the day.  The white horse trailed the beat of the drum and celebratory family members of Amit leading him to his bride with their hands high in the air and voices raised up.  Cultures all have their unique signs of celebration and the most admirable quality of this group is the sense of welcoming and acceptance. Thank you Lan & Amit for letting us share your day with you!
