About our About Video

You can plan as much as you want, but things never turn out the way you think they will. Welcome to the creation of our ‘about us’ video. We have shot (obviously) our fair share of films in our day, however, filming yourself is an entirely different story. Planning the shot list, the content, what you want to say verbally and visually, scouting locations and then ‘performing’ (for lack of a better word) in front of the camera – oh gosh! I was surprised how much extra… anxiety(?) those few extra steps added.

We had planned what we wanted to say and how we wanted to shoot the film a while back and had locations in mind before hand so we were good to go right? Not right. The few days we had reserved to shoot this film ended up being freezing and super foggy. I thought – well this is so great compared to the 90% chance of rain we usually face in Vancouver! Is it Erin? Is it? The beautiful scenery we had planned to shoot near was gone. My hair became MASSIVE. And due to the cold, Macs (adorable) rosy cheeks worked overtime (he does not like them while I love them so much - they are half the reason I married him!)

Ok, well we’re used to filming live events and thus used to the unpredictable, we’ll just go with the flow! The ‘flow’ led us to a beautiful ocean view… with the ever-flattering high noon sun. We are patient people, we will wait this out. A few hours later, prime lighting. We set up the camera, the audio, I managed to tame my enormous hair “3-2-1…” cue giant flock of crows. Wait… “Ok, 3-2-1…” shoot, TRAIN! Wait some more… “3-2-1..” the crows got into a fight with an eagle. Are you KIDDING?! ….Finally silence. “3-2-1…” and sun behind a cloud. We just started laughing. Seriously? What can you do?!

We are so proud of how this film turned out, and looking at it now you would never know the journey it took to make. We hope you enjoy seeing a glimpse of who we are.

Our New Internet Home

It's really amazing how much things change. Time goes on and each day feels exactly like the day before. You work every day at the same tasks, often thankless tasks that produce little if any instant gratification. You don't really notice how much time has gone by until all of a sudden, in a flash! - you wake up and realize how long its been, and how far you've come. You wake up and it's the same as any other day, but it's a different day. That is what the completion of this new website has been for us.

We realized that through doing the ‘same’ thing every day for 8 years, we have come to do something completely different. By challenging ourselves to make every wedding as unique and personal to each couple as we can, we have been able to tell countless stories in countless many ways. We have strived to continually raise the level of our work while not losing what it is that makes us unique, not losing what makes us Hello Tomorrow.

It's not always the big things that produce the drastic results. It's the little things that you do everyday that create the biggest and greatest change. I have a new appreciation for the little things :)

We have been creating wedding films for 8 years now (how on earth has it been 8 years?!) For 8 years we have done the same work, but all of a sudden - FLASH! It's a different work. Have a look for yourself!

We hope you enjoy perusing the new site! Be sure to watch our new about video! It's been years in the making and we're so excited to share it. We'll be sure to share a more detailed post on the video really soon.

This website has been a mountain of work and we have to send a special thank you to everyone who helped us out:

First off, the always INcredible Heather Hastings. She's our go-to designer and she's amazing! She spent countless hours designing and perfecting the look of the site to best reflect us and we couldn't be happier. Heather you're the best!

Now you all know we are huge fans of our friends Shari + Mike, so it was a no brainer to ask then to take our new promotional photos. We are beyond thrilled with the photos! Check out their blog post for a few more!

Also a large portion of the coding wizardry was done by the brilliant Duane Cilliers! Thank you so much for all of your help Duane!
