Here is a little family Christmas film. Merry Christmas to all, from my family to yours.
Most people out there know Desmond Dennis and Destinee's wedding from Desmond's musical performance video we filmed that went viral. It was featured on various difference social media outlets as well as TV. Desmond's performance of "Can You Stand the Rain" by New Edition was amazing. But it was not quite as amazing as their entire wedding day. Here is their full wedding film.
A few weeks ago we traveled to Galicia, Spain to film a wedding.
As always, traveling is always a challenge, yet alone traveling with video camera equipment.
Thankfully, we always pack light. We were able to bring three camera bodies. 2 Sony a7III and 1 a7RIII. We had a multitude of lenses including a 70-200 GM. We had 2 tripods, 3 Came-tv Boltzen lights and 3 light stands as well as 1 DJI RONIN-S gimbal and a Zhiyun Weebill Lab gimbal.
All with just two carry-on Nanuk cases and 2 backpack personal items for 2 cinematographers.
Here is the sneakpeek from the wedding!

What an incredible wedding it was at the Willard InterContinental Hotel in Washington DC.
It was my first ever wedding where I had the amazing opportunity to do a full SAME DAY EDIT FILM for the bride and groom.
For those that don't know, same day edits are films 3 to 5 minutes in length that are edited and premiered on the same day of the wedding during the reception.
Nhu Thuy and Alexander were amazing and understood the work it would take to be able for us to capture their day and to be able to produce a film worthy of their love story to premier the same night of their wedding.
I cannot thank my team enough for helping me pull this off.
We filmed their amazing day starting at 9:30am. I began editing as my two assistants took over filming at around 5pm. The video premiered at 9:00pm during the reception.
@kinpix Kin Hulamm is a beast. Dude is talented, has high energy, super creative, and has an incredible determination to get the shot when we absolutely need it. He has been huge in pushing me to get better and better in my craft. Hopefully working for me helped push him the same way he has pushed me.
@purpuhl_media RJ Goodwin... This dog can film. Point blank. His work in automotive films speak for itself. He was called upon somewhat last minute. He is also creative and can get the shot on demand.
Truly an honor to collaborate with the finest of creatives. No .. we aren't world renowned filmmakers, but we have the drive to create, push ourselves and eachother, get better and better each time we film, and that is what makes us great. It is the journey.
This has been such a gratifying and humbling experience.
Below is the REACTION of the bride and groom watching their wedding film and the film itself. Enjoy!

We had the honor of filming this beautiful wedding at Oxon HIll Manor.
They got ready at The Mandarin in Washington, DC. Being a wedding videographer in the Washington, DC, Maryland, Virginia area provides us with the privilege of filming at many different venues. Farms, Hotels, Mansions, and Vinyards. The Oxon Hill Manor provides a little bit of everything in one location. Combine the amazing venue and the beautiful personalized details of Erika and Shayan's wedding, it was not difficult for us get the perfect shots.
Every wedding is different, and for this, we used 35mm and 50mm lenses for most of the day. 85mm and 135mm provided the telephoto reach. 16-35mm lens provided extreme wide angle and the standard 70-200 was used for ceremony. Cameras used was a Sony a7III, Sony a7RIII, and Sony a6500.
