Saturday I had the honor of filming Alfa and Tony's wedding. It was a really great wedding with loving family and friends sharing their happiness. I met Alfa and Tony back in January at the Pacific Athletic Club open house, and right off the bat we connected. We spent quite a time chatting on that day, so when they reached out to me to film their wedding I was ecstatic.
To top it off they decided to hire my good friend and amazing make up artist Rona Basa. It's always great to work with great professionals, and it's even better when you work with friends.
One excited feature of their package was that they decided to do a same day edit. Now the jitters starting to kick in because I love doing Same Day Edit, but I have not done one in a while and it was my first with DSLR. So it was a new workflow for me but thanks to my good friend and wedding filmmaker extraordinaire Loyd Calomay, I felt reassured I could pull it off with ease and style.
I knew what song I was going to use and for the past week, and I was "storyboarding" it in my head. Even though the ceremony at First United Palo Alto Methodist Church was a late start , and I had no time to start the editing before the ceremony due to a busy prep time, I was very confident I would meet my deadline of 10:30pm to share the SDE with them. And I did 10:15pm I was ready to go.
I would like to give a special shutout to Dennive and Jeffrey of Maliksi photography, who captured the day beautifully, and Cary Lee of Petals by CaryThank you again Alfa and Tony for having me for your wedding. It was truly an honor to work with you. Enjoy the honeymoon
