Eva + Kyle || An Iceland Legalopement

Iceland is not a place I ever thought I would go. Childhood dreams don’t usually include this island in the far North - known mostly for its buried, rotten and fermented shark ‘delicacy’ (which p.s. I did not try...) But over the years (thank you Instagram), people have been discovering the absolute magic that is Iceland. With a landscape that changes almost as quickly as the weather, this land blew my mind every 5 minutes. After spending a very short time there, it became abundantly clear to us why Eva and Kyle chose this place for their elopement.

Eva and Kyle met on a beer-drinking league in university. (That's a thing?!? Awesome!) And after years of graduate school and jobs that kept them miles apart, they moved to Vancouver together. When we met them, it only took us a few short moments to realize these two are beyond awesome. (Oh - also I think it's important to note that Kyle is a meteorologist and Eva hates jam (What?! Who hates jam?!!)).

Getting to capture their elopement + spend the better part of a week with them while travelling around the insanity that is Iceland is something that will stay at the top of our ‘good times’ list for years to come. A truly unforgettable experience. And did we mention our great friends Shari + Mike were there too? Like I said, this trip was the best!

So please, find the biggest screen you can, turn out the lights, and enjoy this film.

Loowa + Joey || Part 1

We don't often get the chance to make engagement films, so when we do it's quiiiite exciting. We get to hang with this awesome couple more then we usually would, get to know so much about them and see them interact with each other. We get to hear their story from BOTH points of view. All of this was definitely a big help for us as we created their engagement film but it was a HUGE help for us as we planned for their Same Day Edit. So much of storytelling is the work you put into pre-production and so we wanted to make sure we knew all about these two before the wedding day. But more on the SDE later... The day we spent filming with Loowa + Joey was the best. This couple is radical. Not just rad, but full on radical. They are hilarious. So easy going. So much fun. I spent most of the shoot laughing at them from afar while Shari + Mike fought with them to make a normal face for a photo. But for us this was gold! Its so rare that a couple can actually be themselves-completely themselves-while trying to act natural in front of 2 (or in this case 4) cameras.

Loowa and Joey- you nailed it. Such a fun shoot. Such a fun film. Check back soon for part two with Loowa + Joey's SDE!

Annie + Andy || A Proposal Story

First off... Welcome one and all to the brand new Hello Tomorrow Wedding Films blog! Nice eh? We dig it too. We've really wanted to refresh the blog for a while now and we're so happy to finally have it up! We want to give a huge shootout to the always amazing Heather Hastings for her incredible design (in case you didn't know, we created Heather and her husband, Jon's, wedding film a little while back. Check it out!). Also a huge thank you to the coding styles of Marc Kimmel!

In the past, we've always been pretty relaxed with our blog. We didn't post nearly enough (whoops!). This refresh is our first attempt at stepping it up a notch. From here on out we will begin posting more often and on a variety of topics.

PS: Let us know what you think of the new blog in the comments below!

OK and now! Annie + Andy...

We met Andy last year to talk about making a film for him. He had been planning on proposing to his girlfriend Annie and had a great idea of how to do it. I'd love to tell you more but... we'll let the film do the talking. We hope you enjoy it!

Tina + Kupa

Usually before every wedding, Mac and I meet with each couple and get to hear their story of how they met and fell in love. We get to hang out and spend time just getting to know them so we will be able to tell their story better when the wedding day comes. WE get to hear the story. But usually, you don’t. Well, for Tina and Kupa you DO! Before filming Tina + Kupa's (absolutely incredible, beautiful, heart felt) day, we created their engagement film. We spent some time down by Kits beach, asked them to each to tell their story and just watched them interact. And we are so happy with the finished film.

This couple's story is very unique. The way they met, the way they live their lives, their vision for the future – it’s not your average story. Anything I tell you about them before you watch the film will seem redundant afterwards. Let them tell you. I will say though that they are a beautiful couple with beautiful souls. We loved spending time with them and can’t wait to hang out with them again.

Be sure to check back soon for their wedding highlights film!

Shanon + Mike || Straight From... The Heart

Shanon and Mike have an amazing story. 15 years old and barely in high school, they fell for each other. From N64 hangouts to travelling through Europe, they've done it all together. 11 years later to the day they were married. Not a bad anniversary eh? To me this film is a glimpse into Shanon and Mike as individuals and as a couple. We always stress the importance of audio in storytelling, and this film is a great example. We learn so much about these two through what they say during their gift opening and their speeches to each other - like how Mike is obsessed with hockey, how he grew in his opinion of marriage, and also how Shanon knew she wanted to marry Mike after their trip through Europe. We feel that wedding films can show so much more than just two people getting married, and we feel this film does that. We really obsessed over this edit and made sure it told the perfect story of this wonderful couple. We really hope you enjoy it.

Shanon and Mike thank you both so much for allowing us to tell your story. We had the most amazing time getting to know you two and we feel so blessed to have been apart of your wedding!

-Mac

PS... Huge shout out to Chris Plus Lynn Photography who we had a blast working with! Also a huge thanks to Lori Fraser who we always love to work with and who kept the day running oh so smoothly. Wedding Design Studio did an incredible job as always on the decor, design, and flowers. Kim and her team are the best!

Mark + Gillian || Save The Date

Gillian is into fashion and music and art. Mark is an engineer. They are the perfect couple. We got to spend a beautiful, sunny evening with this couple at Crescent beach filming a save-the-date for them – cutest idea! And I’m very proud. I would like to take a little credit for this as Maclean and I did a similar film for our wedding invitations - but this one was much more beautiful. We hit it right that evening – the light was perfect! The couple was also really creative. They showed up with a list of things they like to do together to incorporate into their film. Example – they love to go dingy-ing together, so they brought a dingy, blew it up and hopped in the freezing ocean. It was quite entertaining for Mac and I actually.

We had so much fun with Gillian and Mark and are so excited for them! If Gillian has anything to do with this wedding, it will be incredibly beautiful and unique (I follow/love her blog - gillian-nicole.blogspot.ca/). Congratulations to you both!

mikaela + shane || a starbucks engagement story

Meet Mikaela and Shane. These two have a pretty remarkable story. Also I think Shane wins hands down for best proposal of all time. So this past summer, Mikaela and Shane contacted us about making a 'love story' type film to tell the story of how they got engaged. We were thrilled to shoot one and were very excited to hear how Shane popped the question. Mikaela then sent me a link to a post on her blog and my jaw dropped. I couldn't believe it... Shane recreated their first date at a starbucks... in the woods! SO cool! We were amazed how he thought of every little detail! Naturally we met up with them at a Starbucks to talk more about their relationship and how they got together. There is so much more behind the elaborate setup and we couldn't wait to tell their story in this engagement film.

For more check out Mikaela's blog post. and Their new site www.starbucksproposal.com

PS: Mikaela and Shane recently tied the knot! Check out the beautiful photos by Jasmine Star!

iris+vince=viris || the story

Iris and Vince are hilarious. These two are so relaxed and it is extremely rare to see either of them without a gigantic smile on their face. Earlier this summer, we had the pleasure of shooting a 'love story' type film with them to show at their reception. A perfect way for guests to get a better glimpse of who the couple is. We had a TON of fun filming with these two. Erin and I were constantly trying to keep ourselves from laughing behind the camera. We'll be posting their wedding highlights very soon but for now, learn a bit about them by watching this film.
