From the very first call that we received from this couple we totally clicked!!! They both had so many ideas about a video that they wanted to do. The most important thing was that they wanted it to be different than every other “Save the Date” that anyone has ever seen. They were so open to ideas and excited about creating something that seemed impossible…
Some things that we thought about when coming up with the plan:
They love Jay-Z.
They love the trailer for The Great Gatsby.
They have huge parties every year that they are know for throwing amongst their friends.
They love to surprise people.
They are more willing than most people that we know to step outside of their comfort zone in order to be creative!!!
Our keyword for this project was EPIC.
For the majority of the shooting it was just a crew of two.. A husband and wife team, Chris and Jennifer Mae.
For the Club Scene. Jennifer Mae and Chris were able to shoot at Monroe in San Francisco. This was shot with the RED EPIC. In addition, our team included two assistants working on wardrobe and details as well as our dear friend Luke who took behind the scenes photos…
We also had many extras who worked and had a great time in creating the party scene at Monroe.
In the helicopter, Christine and Jennifer Mae shot with the Red Epic and the Canon MKIII.
For the driving shots we used the Canon MKIII.
The couple was incredibly dedicated and made it so much fun to create such a unique project together.
Through the process we became great friends! We LOVE them!
Although the "Save the Date" is intended to be larger than life, these two in real life are extremely down to earth. They are two of the kindest, most thoughtful and dedicated individuals that we know. Together they make an amazing team!
The couple wanted to create an experience for their guests leading up to their event. Having been through the process myself as a bride and shooting hundreds of weddings, I know how difficult it is to do something different than everyone else. So, when they said they wanted to do something that would allow for such creativity, we were all in and wanted to make it as Epic as possible.
Thanks to Warren Difranco for the incredible Thumbnail photo!
It is so wonderful to create alongside such an amazing couple, who is as excited about the experience for their guests, as they are to be getting married to one another! We have seen hundreds of couples from all walks of life and all budgets. But not many compare to their commitment to one another.
We are so excited about their Epic Wedding!!!
In the meantime, enjoy their Epic Wedding Save the Date.
