Matthew and Kate met while going to school at Western University and as Matt puts it, their meeting touches on a theme threaded through his entire life – he considered himself the luckiest person on earth. Both Kate and Matt are generous, loving people with a lot of beautiful family support. Their wedding took place on gorgeous property out in Whistler, British Columbia with many friends and family members. In meeting Kate, Matt could not pass on the opportunity of getting to know her better and introduced himself by first starting with the line “I think I know you from somewhere.” Matt continued pursuing Kate and they found out they had a lot in common; living in the same building, going to the same school, and even knew some of the same people. One night, Matt made the best bet of his life – betting on The Seahawks vs The Steelers when The Steelers won (something they were both hoping for). The best part was Matt would later have to meet up with Kate to settle the bet and the rest was history.
Turn and Watch
Anna and Mike are both as sweet as can be. Even with so many of their family and friends celebrating all day long, the day remained so peaceful and calm. We love to see, experience and be a part of traditions and cultural elements that make a wedding day so special; like when Mike had to ‘pay’ his way to see his bride, and Anna’s parental blessing on the new married couple. It’s easy to see just how sweet and loving these two are, in this film. It was great getting to working with Julie Fulsher of Sterling Images.
Tamara + Jeremy and Everything Else…
May 7, 2011 – Tamara & Jeremy’s wedding was one we were really looking forward to! We felt privileged to be able to spend the entire day filming with them and present a Same Day Edit right after the father daughter dance. Shooting some hoops with the guys was in order before the strenuous activity of getting suited up in the morning. Typically filming the guys getting ready can be quite short so it is fun, so to see these guys chill’n out and having a good time together before the formal part of the day. The morning started as usual for Tamara and the ladies…hair and makeup was being done at their home which overlooks the rising river in Winnipeg. Even Roxy & Brodie got in on the wedding attire; wearing a little doggie tuxedo and veil for a few photos. With a few minor adjustments to the dress before the ceremony we were off to the extravagant ceremony at Springs Church. We had a lot of ground to cover at the ceremony and access anywhere we wanted, so you will see some shots that we don’t normally get to shoot. There is something very surreal for us when we can be on stage and have clips looking out over the guests. We appreciated the all access pass. The whole day was a grand celebration and we are so thankful we could be apart of it! Congratulations Tamara & Jeremy!
A Little Help From Some Friends… We have to make special mention regarding some of the crew working with us this time around. Usually we shoot with a very limited crew, but not this time. It’s not everyday we get to film with friends! Let us explain…We required a bit more man power because of the size of the sanctuary and the shots we wanted to get. So we called in our trusty side kick Steve from At First Sight! What we appreciate most about these guys is not only that they are friends, but they share a passion for film like we do. We feel it is so important in the industry to work together and help each other out as much as possible. Thanks for all your help! As well a big thank you to Rachael & Brian from Luckygirl Photography. Working with them is always the best day ever and we are stoked we have a few more wedding booked with them this summer. Enjoy the SDE! If you haven’t already, feel free to check out their SDE Trailer…
