Wedding Inspiration

The Emotion “Pic” of the Week. Two sisters.

These video stills show a glimpse of a bride and her little sister on the wedding day. It was obvious to me as I filmed the day unfold that they have a close relationship. The sister moved in and around the bride throughout the day watching with adoration and joy. As the night drew to a close she was overcome with emotion as the reality set in that their lives and relationship were changing forever. I love capturing a wedding day and all of the small moments that tell big stories.



10 Ringbearers & 3 Flower Girls!

10 Ringbearers is definitely a record in our books. Since there is only one set of wedding rings, what do the other 9 ring bearers carry you ask? Ring Pops of course! One little guy just loved playing with his Bow “Toy”. Very Cute.

The best way to keep your hungry ring bearer clean…

The Emotion Picture Studio “Pic” of the Week: These clever groomsmen didn’t want to get in trouble for delivering a ring bearer wearing pizza sauce so they repurposed a dry cleaning plastic bag to keep this hungry boy spot free.

A grand, Grand Entrance Video

How do you introduce a couple when the bride is an Angels fan and the groom is a Star Wars fan????

With the use of a live camera feed and some fancy switching the couple appeared on screens in the room before appearing in the room to start the party.
Thank you Jason of Vision Entertainment for all of your help with this Introduction Video.

The 2013 San Diego ABC March Meeting, The Excellence Awards

Honored to be San Diego ABC “Best Wedding Memory” Award Winner

We are grateful for every wedding we get to produce an Emotion Picture of and for the friends and colleagues that share their clients with us. It is an honor to have our work recognized with the “Best Wedding Memory” award at this year’s San Diego ABC Excellence Awards.
This San Diego couple were amazing to work with, so fun and so passionate about their guests having a good time at their wedding. Thank you Natalie Vishny of Swellegant for including us in this memorable wedding. To set the mood for what would be a memorable and FUN wedding, this video was played as guests sat ready for the ceremony to begin. At the conclusion of the video the groom ran from the camera view into the wedding site to the cheers and applause of all of the guests.

Ceremony Prologue Video

One of our client couples approached us with the desire to do something unique at their wedding. They wanted to start the wedding in a way that set the tone for the rest of the event. The couple, being non-traditional, fun-loving and contemporary wanted to have a classy but FUN celebration. Since most guests attending a wedding get their first glance of the couple during the ceremony and their first interaction with them during the reception, this couple wanted to connect with their guests before the ceremony so they decided they wanted to create an Introduction Video that would play at the beginning of the ceremony. The video would be able to speak for them and say, sure this is a wedding but we are here to have fun!. The Emotion PIcture Studio was hired to produce the Intro Prologue Video and film the wedding day.

During a creative session with the couple we chose a theme similar to the “Hangover” movies but with a twist. The couple would wake-up (in separate locations but under similar circumstances) to discover that it was their wedding day and they only had 1 hour till the ceremony was to begin! The video shows them working through their horror and their hangover to struggle to get to the wedding on time. In the end they make it, but just barely and the video concludes as the groom runs from the front of the venue to the rear where the wedding is taking place. On the wedding day, the timing had to be perfect to have the groom enter the ceremony just as he disappears from view on the screens.

Another challenge and unique solution was the displaying of the video. The wedding was held at the family’s estate and the ceremony was outdoors in the back yard in the middle of the afternoon when bright daylight meant seeing video screens would be very difficult. Ultra-bright screens had to be used and mounted on specially built platforms so they could be seen by all the guests but not detract from the beauty of the ceremony.

The Intro Prologue Video was a huge hit and served its purpose of being a way for a couple to connect and speak to their guests at the beginning of their event, infuse their personalities into their wedding ceremony, and set the tone for the rest of the celebration.
