Last fall, one of my fantastic wedding coordinators, Dana Gabriel (Orange Dove Events) contacted me and told me that one of her couples were getting married at Diablo Dormido - she was interested in booking me for my cinematography services. She put me in touch with Yael and Tomer, and we made an appointment to meet at Balconi Coffee Company near UCLA.
We met at this quaint and cozy coffee shop, and we talked about their wedding over hot cups of coffee. After an hour or so, Yael and Tomer booked my services on the spot, and I couldn't be more excited! On an off note, Balconi serves a delicious almond latte - you have to go there and try it!
During the morning of her wedding, I'm getting geared up for a noon start time, and I hear my phone ring. Yael calls me and asks that she would like to have some video coverage of her makeup/hair at the hotel. I replied that I'd love to do that for her, so I rush over to her hotel. After a couple of hours of hanging out with Yael, we head over to the venue.
Ahmanson Ranch is a classically beautiful venue, with a breathtaking ceremony site. We always love working here because the staff is always super friendly, and it's really hard to get a bad photo/video since the light here is gorgeous.
My team and I had a lot of fun filming the wedding - all the vendors were great to work with, but the best part was working with Yael and Tomer. They completely trusted us and allowed our creativity to flow. I couldn't ask for a better couple, and we are so excited to share their wedding highlight video with you all!
