Like It Was Yesterday

Gifts from the heart mean so much when there is thought and anticipation built up all around them. Jordan and Jeff put a great deal of thought into the gifts they presented to each other on the morning of their wedding day and both of them were truly swept away by the letters they wrote to one another. We love how they focused on why they love each-other and expressed that love through words. Being together for many years, they had been through some ups and downs in life and this day was meant to help celebrate the good memories and cherishing the memory of loved ones who were not present.

The day could be best described as a non-stop romantic and sentimental expression of love for friends, family, and each other. One of my favourite moments is when Jordan’s father see’s her in the dress for the first time; what a precious moment that Jordan will no doubt carry with her for life. Their story weaves together the most meaningful and heart-felt moments and we are so thankful to have been apart of their day.

We had the pleasure of getting to work along side an old friend, Coralee from Red Photo Co; a long time professional in the industry.

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.

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 :)

Prince Philip…

Incredible heartfelt couples that are truly head over heels for each other are only found in fairy tales, right?  Well we assure you they happen in real life and when we had our first meeting with these two it was so amazing to sit and laugh, chatting about all kinds of things and hearing about how they met.   Yes, a couple truly in love.   Just a self realization note to add in here; we have found that after our first meeting with our couples we generally have a good idea of what they are like and what they are into, and when the wedding day comes around a different part of them comes to life.  So, for Ayli and Phil we would say we were completely mesmerized by how close they are to their families and how head over heels they really are for each other.  The first look was the much anticipated moment of the day and watching Phil’s reaction to seeing Ayli for the first time could melt anyone’s heart.  Phil is a groom that we would describe as a noble, upstanding gentleman, who will stand firm through the test of time.  Our utmost respect and adoration for these two, you both are incredibly loving people!

The Beat…

Ayli and Phil like a wide variety of music and we were very inspired by Adele, as Ayli had her playing in the background while getting ready.  We like to be inspired by new music and artists that fit the Paperback Films feel and for this highlights we were drawn into the intensity of Arms by Christina Perri.  Being able to get in so close at the ceremony and being right part of the action helped to bring their story along and as the song builds you feel the breaking of the glass approaching, symbolizing the broken world we live in with the hope that new love and life can heal all those who suffer.  At the sound of the breaking glass, family and friends shout “Mazel Tov!” which means good luck and congratulations.  Then the happily ever after comes…

Here is Amanda and Jacobs trailer. We have to say, it was an absolute pleasure to film this day. These two are so perfect for each other, what a blessing to see.  On a side note, we aren’t accustom to filming in frigid cold weather all that often, so we have to state for historical value that the outside temperature while filming this was -30 degrees Celsius! Yup, -30! Needless to say, we all survived! We wanted to use most of the indoor shots to keep it nice and warm :).  So, go grab a cup of hot chocolate with some marshmallows on top and enjoy this short trailer of their day.

I can’t say much due to the secrecy of the project, but Becky & Kara of Jack & Ruby Photography came up with a fantastic idea a while back and asked if Paperback Films would like to film a photo shoot.  After much deliberation (kidding) we finally said yes. I’ll leave the rest of the info for when the actual shoot and video come out.

I have to make quick mention of the couple who were also a part of the shoot, we called them the talent :) Go check out Desirae of Paper Airplanes. She has some fantastic wedding stationery & graphic design work posted on her blog. Her and husband Cole put up with four cameras in their face for the afternoon! A complete pleasure to work with.

Anyhow, here is a quick trailer. Check back around Valentines Day in February for more!!

October 2, 2010 – Here is the trailer of Lauren and Adam’s wedding! What a beautiful fall weekend it was. We were so lucky to have a warm and sunny special day with no wind. Lauren and Adam are one of the nicest people we have ever met. It was a pleasure watching them enjoy the day they had work so hard to plan. We were honoured to be there to capture this fantastic day! Thank you so much!

Mark and Cody and I, as always, had way to much fun working together!

Here is a sneak peak of Scott & Stacy’s wedding!

The amazing part is you cannot tell how chilly the temperature was outside, being that it was around 10 degree’s. Scott, Stacy and the whole wedding party were willing and stoked to do just about anything with Bond from BLF Studios (blfstudios.com). Bond’s sneak peak of the photographs were unreal, can’t wait to see more! And Esther, Bond’s second shooter was a blast to work with as well. We loved the variety of locations and it was so awesome to be apart of documenting this day

Hands down, Scott & Stacy along with the whole party delivered the most memorable wedding to date. Chris Radtke and myself were pumped with the shots we got and are excited to put it all together.
