A Field of Dreams

We kept hearing story after story about how these two knew they were meant for each other. It became the basis for our film; a true account of soul mates. It’s a story of struggle, redemption, perseverance, and family. Faith is ultimately what guided them together. A true calling; a true love story with a happy beginning.

For me, the day was deeply impactful. We were quickly caught up in the day’s events. Jessica and her family had put a lot of planning and labour into this wedding and it showed. With the help of Soiree Event Planning, it looked even more spectacular. Every detail was so delicately thought out and put together. One of our favourite areas on the farm was the ceremony location in a beautiful Manitoba prairie field. A well developed crop with a section flattened in the distance. Bails of hay for seating and a fence made out of crops. It was a field of dreams.

Thanks again to Curtis Moore of Moore Photography for his stunning work and truly amazing fun times to film with.

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.

Icelandic Scenics

Driving out to Gimli (Manitoba’s Icelandic community) early in morning had us excited for a water front cottage feel to Heather and Timothy’s same day edit.  There was one thing that we were nervous about and that was the dark clouds that threatened the outdoor picturesque filming we would be able to do.  And we are so thankful to say it couldn’t have turned out much better than it did for the entire day’s schedule.  The ceremony and reception took place at the Waterfront Center which had fabulous lighting and the atmosphere fit so well for their celebration.  We were so thankful that their first look on the pier turned out beautifully with the sun shining down.  They were both so ecstatic to see each other that Timothy bolted as soon as he could hear that Heather was close behind and they were so ready to get married.  This location is particularly meaningful for the family with its history of spending time together at the lake.  And now having been married here it will forever hold deep meaning with them.

Thanks to Photographer Rebecca Croft for a day of fun. Always good to work with you!

Let’s travel the world

Paul and Signy are both adventurers – whether it be a social get together in the heart of downtown Winnipeg (meeting all sorts) or flying to and exploring a new country. It’s encouraging to see just how fate brought them together; already carrying the relationship through a long distance beginning. Together they are a perfect combination, where each of their strengths helps build the other and we rarely witnessed a moment where they weren’t complementing each other. Later in the evening, we all experienced Paul’s knack for coming up with an amazing speech on the spot and then we have Signy, a talented writer. How perfect is that? We’re happy to share their story with all of you. It was so much fun getting to work with Coralee of Red Photo Co (check out her photos of the day here) again.

 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
