Remember these two?

They threw an engagement party and invited all their friends but SURPRISE! Actually got married instead! Seeing the guests reactions was the BEST. Especially this girl…

This girl has great reactions. And is also one of the funniest people I have met. And is also a total babe. AND WE GOT TO FILM HER WEDDING TOOOOO!! 

She married Eddie who is equally as wonderful and just as much of a babe. 

Try not to laugh. Try not to cry. Try not to be jealous you weren’t invited.

My Insides || Jessica + James

Challenge: Watch this film and try not to ugly cry. 

Quick story… We met with Jessica + James 2 years ago. We were so excited to hear a little about how they got together, loved chatting about their wedding plans, and left oh so excited for their day.

Fast forward a few months and the decision was made to postpone the wedding by a year. We were sad but we totally understood so we set a date for 2018. 

Then 2018 arrived and OH MAN we were excited. I think this is the longest we’ve ever been in touch with a couple before their wedding and it meant our excitement was off. the. charts. 

Jessica + James are something special. We could explain, but we think this film and their words tell the story much better. Enjoy their film.

Our Greatest Adventure || Keira + Jas

Every couple is excited to get married. Duh. But Keira and Jas were VERY excited to get married (we followed them on insta - so we know). And knowing this also made us VERY excited for their day. And it didn’t disappoint. 

These two have been together for a long time, and I think for that reason we weren’t expecting their wedding to be as emotional as it was. But woooooow. These two life like they’re a couple of kids which is something we treasure ourselves. Plus they love Disneyland as much as we do sooooo they’re pretty much the best.

Watch their film and prepare yourself for way too much cuteness and lots of cries :)

Cheryl + Cameron + Theo || Go Anywhere

I loved this day. I loved everything about this day. 
I loved that it was an intimate elopement. 
I loved that it was in the forest on a moody/cloudy day.
I loved that Cheryl and Cam’s adorable son Theo was such a big part of the day.
I loved Cheryl’s hair. 
I loved Cheryl’s dress. 
I really loved Cheryl’s dress.

Everything was beautiful. So good. Describing it with words isn’t doing it justice. At. All. Watch this film? Sorry, I meant ‘WATCH THIS FILM!’… Please : )

Sonia + Henry || We Grow Together - Our First Wedding with the Canon C200

It's been quiet around here. We're very sorry about that but guys I'm not sure if you know this but it turns out having a kid takes up a lot of your time. We've been enjoying the last little while of quality time with our boy Woodrow and it's been incredible. BUT that doesn't mean the work stops. Wedding season has officially kicked off and oh man we kicked it off with an amazing day. Sonia + Henry invited 20 of their closest friends to a private estate in the forest to witness their emotional vows. It was a day we'll never forget. This also happens to be the first wedding video where we used our new Canon C200. We hope you enjoy!

Woodrow Maclean Carlson || Our Son

Woodrow Maclean Carlson was born November 5th and is perfect. It’s hard to believe the little boy we’ve been waiting for for so long is finally here. We were so excited for his arrival but we were quite thrown off when he came. We haven’t shared this but Erin’s delivery experience was traumatic and dangerous. She suffered massive hemorrhaging, emergency surgery and had to have a blood transfusion. It was one of the best moments of our lives followed by one of the worst. Thankfully because of prayers and the amazing care we had, Erin is ok. The recovery process will be long and difficult but Woodrow makes us forget all that. The first 10 days of his life have been incredible and we’re loving every second. We love you Woodrow. 

Brianna + Hussein || All the Feels

You ever meet someone and instantly you're like "Yes. Yes to them!"? That is how Mac and I felt about Brianna and Hussein. And the more we got to know these two the louder the 'Yes's' started being. 

They are two of the greats. So fun. So sweet. SO generous. You can't help but fall in love with them. And the way they love each other? Its impossible not to be over the moon happy for them. I found myself smiling into my monitor for most of the day when shooting (which Mac later informed me makes me look a little dorky... And also stopped me from being aware of my surroundings which is sometimes not the most helpful... whoops!) You can't help it!! They're TOO CUTE!

Side note - things kept... changing during the planning of their wedding (mostly thanks to construction timelines) and I've never seen a bride roll so well with the punches. You'd never know it as the day was completely stunning, but I just wanted to give even more credit to the quality of these two humans. 

When you watch them, they seriously don't see anything but each other which is the dream isn't it? And also adorable. And also the best. 

Congrats #HueBre. We are so so happy for you guys :)

Brieanne + Jace || Counting Up

Anytime I think about attending a wedding without shooting it, at first I think "That would be so fun! Not sure what I'd do with myself, but how relaxing!" But then you shoot a wedding like Brianne and Jace's and you immediately change your mind and could never imaging simply attending. 

We had the honour of filming their intimate first look (which is already one of the huuuuge bonuses of shooting vs attending) but they also decided to read the personal vows they had written to each other at this time. This was one of those instances where while we were shooting we thought to ourselves "whoa... this is a moment". We were so blown away by how these two poured out their hearts to one another while they reflected over their entire relationship. It was so beautiful in fact that I was almost able to completely ignore the wasps that kept landing on my camera (...almost) 

These words were the perfect through line for their story. And because we got to film it, YOU get to experience it too (you're welcome). So grab some Kleenex and enjoy :)

We love working with incredible talent and this wedding was full of it. Check out the amazing team of vendors...

Danielle + Paul || The Luckiest

Remember summer camp? Like when you were a kid? Wasn’t it the best!?! 
Staying in cabins, playing games, minimal supervision, (sneakily) staying up as late as you wanted, eating far too much candy and easily making lifelong friends. Remember how much fun it was?!?

That’s exactly what Danielle + Paul wanted for their wedding. 

They brought their friends and family from all over the world to Vancouver for a summer-camp-like weekend called “Camp Veggie Burger” (Danielle’s last name is Leaf and Paul’s is Burger. Get it?!)

And it was exACTLY like summer camp! 
Staying in cabins, playing games, minimal supervision, staying up as late as you wanted (without having to sneak), instead of eating far too much candy – substitute drinking, and easily making lifelong friends. So fun! 

Then to top it all off, on the last day, Danielle + Paul shared their vows in front of all their family in friends in the middle of the forest – and THEN had a haka! Have you ever seen a haka? Its powerful to watch. 

This wedding was the perfect combination of being relaxed while also being crazy fun. Danielle and Paul you nailed it. Watch the film to experience the fun and feel all the feels.

Kate + Sayed || Limitless

We get so lucky with our couples. Like so lucky. Like Kate and Sayed lucky.

We met these two on Skype initially (as they live in San Francisco). And while I usually find its not quite as easy to really connect with people over the internet, I remember when the call ended looking at Mac -we were both smiling so big and said ‘Oh my gosh I LOVE them!’ at the same time!

We loved their personalities (oh you’ll see in the film).
We loved that they wanted to get married in the mountains.
We loved that they wanted to do their first look on top of Mount Currie in a helicopter. (Mac especially loved it as he yelled ‘dibs’ first… Dang it Erin!)

But above all we loved their passion for life and each other. We hope you enjoy the film.
