HD Video & Super 8 Film in Palm Desert, CA

How do you spell love?

Winnie the Poo says you don’t spell it, you feel it. Nicole and Chris wanted a high energy video that reflected their love of life, each other, and the many epic dance moves at their reception. They opted to have a bit of Super 8 Film woven into their HD Video to add an element of fun. An option that’s becoming increasingly popular among many couples. This wedding took place at a private Big Horn residence in Palm Desert, CA. We were joined by Fuller Edge photography and the wedding planning team from The Bride & I.

A Scottish Wedding in Pasadena

Hayley + Andrew

A sweet memorable Scottish themed wedding in Pasadena, CA. How amazing are those antler chandlers?? The entire wedding was dreamed up by the bride’s mother and brought to life by the talented team at Joie de Vivre We also enjoyed shooting alongside Robert Evans Photography.

“Oh my goodness, it is absolutely amazing!! So, so, so much joy. Thank you for all your hard work and creativity. We have already watched it about 10 times. You did a beautiful job and we are so happy that we can relive our wedding day! It is everything we hoped for and more!” – Haley & Andrew

Super 8 Wedding Film // San Francisco

Allie + Sean

In October, during the government shutdown, Allie & Sean got hitched under the Golden Gate Bridge on the Fort Baker Pier which was officially CLOSED. A super cool park ranger showed up and, instead of stopping the wedding (which he had every right to do) he let everyone carry on:) The day turned out to be spectacular… This wedding was shot on Super 8 Film We also had the great privilege of shooting alongside one of our favorite photographers Carl Zoch who recently shot a portrait session for us too! (Here’s a sneak peak)

“AMAZING!!! Thank you so much. We are so happy that we picked you to do this. Your work is simply incredible. Thank you for being there and filming this special day in our lives. Cheers from Zurich!” – Allie & Sean

Casa Romantica // San Clemente Wedding Video

Nicole + Paolo

A sweet, beautiful wedding at Casa Romantica in San Clemente. One of our favorite moments was Nicole & Paolo’s first dance, surrounded by family and friends overlooking the ocean at sunset… a perfect moment.

“WOW WOW WOW!!!!!!! Thank you SO MUCH, Alanna & Ted!!!!!!!!! Our highlight video is absolutely AMAAAAAAAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was a huge hit with our family — your video brought every single person (even my dad;) to tears. I absolutely LOVE the ‘overlay’ of our vows!!!!!! I’m still in complete awe over how truly amazing our video is & how you really captured so many tiny special moments, like taking my wedding gown off the hanger, my bridesmaid’s faces as I put on my gown, my parent’s faces as we said our vows, my girlfriends laughing in the audience, Paolo and I saying “I do”, our first dance, and (my fav) pouring the ceremony sand everywhere! You truly captured the true essence of our special day, and I really cannot thank you enough. You are both such talented artists & I feel SO lucky that you were there to capture every moment of our wedding day. My family and I thank you so much. And we cannot wait to see the longer video!!!! Thank you so much again.” -Nicole


Darcy + Steve

We have always loved The Pearl in San Diego (sweet little 60′s inspired boutique hotel.. great drinks and gold fish in every room!) and we were so happy when Darcy and Steve contacted us last year regarding their wedding at the Pearl. We were excited enough about their venue but then we met Darcy & Steve for coffee and found out their awesome story… With Darcy being a roller derby girl and Steve a referee we knew we were in for a fun wedding.


Mike + Amy

Congrats Amy & Mike! Here’s to finding your home plate. A wedding at Estancia, La Jolla.

“OH MY GOSH!!!!! We LOVE it!! :) Thank you so much for capturing our story! We just watched it because Mike has been on duty for the past 2 days. It was torture waiting! We can’t wait for the full length video now! :) We had such a blast working with you guys and think you are absolutely amazing! Thank you thank you thank you!” – XO, Mike and Amy

Super 8 Wedding Film // Camp Cabernet Malibu

Ryan + Dave

Ryan & Dave’s wedding was full of sentiment and nuance. A day that brought family together to celebrate their love and the memory of those who had gone before… An “off the charts amazing day” captured with super 8 film and HD video at Camp Cabernet Saddlerock Ranch, Malibu CA.

“Both Dave & I, and our parents/families who have watched the video are simply floored by the beauty and sentiment you were able to capture from the day. Both sets of parents, and of course Papa Jim, reported watching in tears. Dave said that the film was so touching, and such a great way to be able to re-live the day, and to see ourselves from the outside. He said he felt like it brought him back to when we were standing up there, and that watching it was just a flood of emotions. As I watched (and re-watched, and re-watched) the film, I was so grateful that we got in touch with you to make this film happen. Even from just this first six minutes, I can tell that it is exactly what I had hoped for–a gorgeous “time capsule” of the day, put together with thought, care, and the skills of two artists. I remember when I used to watch other people’s Modern 8 highlight films on your blog, and how I would cry, even though the couple were strangers to me. Now, I get it–I can completely see how strangers could watch our film, get this peek into our lives and our family, and be brought to that level of emotion. We CANNOT WAIT to see the rest of it! You are both so incredibly talented. My brother said ‘I can’t believe they could do that, just them. It looks like it was shot on a movie set!’ So, thank you Ted & Alanna, we ADORE your work and are so happy to have met and worked with you.” -Ryan Eagle
