Off to Martha's Vineyard

I'm heading out to Martha's Vineyard for the long weekend and to film Nellie and Tyler's island wedding. The weather is supposed to be great and I'm looking forward to a little city escape, not to mention capturing the couples' celebration on film.

Happy Memorial Day everyone. I hope you enjoy the long weekend where ever you are.

Family films

I've been playing around filming children to add a kids and family addition to Hello Super 8. We not only want to do wedding films, we want to capture all important aspects of life and that includes childhood! We'll be rolling this out later this year but I wanted to give you a glimpse of the first little edit I put together.

This is the Usborne family, which I filmed one weekend this winter at their country home in Sussex, England. Those are some pretty cute kids if you ask me. :)

Just plain GREAT

My friend Kenny, who lives in London animated this amazingly cool and beautiful video for Nike. It has nothing to do with weddings or super 8 but it's totally inspirational to make great work. Enjoy:

Miami photographer: Trevor Goldsmith

I had the pleasure of working along side the wonderfully talented Miami-based photographer, Trevor Goldsmith last week. He was a awesome to work with (very laid back with great attention to detail and really got the shots). Be sure to check out his work (he's available worldwide!).

He's already posted some shots from Hannah and Alan's wedding on his blog. How amazing is her dress (and that ocean!)?

Married in Miami

Hello everyone. I just returned from a fabulous journey to Miami to film the lovely couple, Hannah and Alan's beautifully intimate celebration. The weather could not have been more ideal. Perfect warm sunshine with a cool ocean breeze.

The wedding was held at the fabulous Tides Hotel. The hotel was extremely chic, perfect for the design-savvy couple's weddings. Hannah, a designer herself, created a gorgeous identity for the day, with inspired programs, menus, place cards, etc. I was very impressed with her attention to detail and the day went off without a hitch.

The ceremony started in the penthouse, then moved to the roof for cocktails. The whole party then headed down to the beach for some sunset photos and then back to the penthouse for a quiet dinner. Everyone was so warm and welcoming and I was thrilled to be a part of such a great family gathering. I can't wait see the film and edit it (stay tuned).

Before the taxi came to take me back to the airport, I spent my last hours on the beach, soaking up the rays and reflecting on the beauty of the previous day's events, before heading back to rain-soaked New York.
