Eileen and Aaron Short Film

“Eileen and Aaron’s wedding short film is a must watch!”

When Eileen and Aaron contacted us to shoot their wedding and mentioned that it was going to be on a yacht, we said, "yes, please!" After getting ready at the Hyatt, the whole wedding party headed down to the Electra Cruises located right next to the beach in Newport Beach, CA. We were also happily surprised to see Sandy and Kris at the wedding as Aaron and Kris went to college together.  Read more...

Tracey and Richard Wedding Teaser

“Tracey and Richard’s wedding teaser. A prelude to something great.”

Every wedding we do is so vastly different from the next. I'm always amazed at the variations you can have for a wedding. And don't get me wrong, this isn't a complaint, its thankfulness that my job never gets boring! This is just a simple teaser for Tracey and Richard's wedding. It was located at the quite unique and amazing Highland Springs Resort in Beaumont, CA  Read more...

Kayla and Anthony Wedding at Muckenthaler Mansion

“Kayla and Anthony’s quaint wedding at the Muckenthaler Mansion is a step in a new direction for Rustic Red Studio.”

Where to even begin with this blog...so much to say! I really enjoyed both shooting and editing this wedding. Kayla and Anthony were a true joy to meet and work with. Barely into shooting this wedding I knew immediately that it was going to be a different edit all together, and boy I couldn't have been more spot on. This edit marks several firsts for Rustic Red Studio, music style choice, shooting style, color grading, audio mixing, cinestyle ratio, and Magic Lantern hacked firmware and Technicolor Cinestyle color profile on camera, all of which I will address below.  Read more...

Kate and Eric Wedding at Temecula Creek Inn

“Kate and Eric’s Wedding at the serene Temecula Creek Inn will make you feel like a part of their family.”

When we first showed up to shoot this wedding, I knew that it was going to be a good day. The weather was down right perfect and the moment I walked into the bridal suite it just felt right. Throughout the day as I got to really know Kate and Eric and their family, I got to see how closely knit each family was with each other.  Read more...

Jennifer and Chris Short Film

"A Day in the Desert"

Jennifer and Chris are an amazing couple that I'm so glad we had the opportunity to work with. Their wedding was at the beautiful Miramonte Resort in Indian Wells, California. The resort itself was quite a spectacle and a perfect place to spend time with family and friends. Jennifer and Chris choose to do a first look or reveal before the ceremony. This allowed them to do the photoshoot with each other before the ceremony and to start celebrating with the wedding party early.  Read more...

Kate and Eric Wedding Teaser

"Kate and Eric Wedding Teaser for Your Enjoyment "

In anything I edit, the first 30 seconds is the most important. It sets the tone for the rest of the edit and it is my one opportunity to capture your attention for you to want to watch the rest. In this case I could resist showing everybody the beginning of the edit. I wrapped it up in teaser form an uploaded it for everybody to see.  Read more...

The Villa San Juan Capistrano Photoshoot

"The Villa in San Juan Capistrano is a beautiful hidden cove of pure spectacle"

Recently we were asked to film a photoshoot at The Villa, how could we say no to such a beautiful location and talented people? When we first walked through the huge old wooden gates we were not ready for the lush scenery that lay on the other side. Immediately I started thinking to myself that I wanted to shoot this, and that, oh and that cool thing over there. I was quickly overwhelmed with so much to shoot that I had to take a step back and go to work.  Read more...

My Story

"When things change you have to adapt accordingly, or you will be left behind."

The original purpose of this video was to win some free gear so that I can ever increase the refinement that are my tools. But as I watched this project unfold in front of me, it organically changed into something so much more. Its funny how things change, isn't it?

Why so many questions?

When tasked with describing me, who I was, what I was about, I thought it was going to be easy. But as I started to figure out how I was going to edit and shoot, I was flooded with more questions than answers. Who was I really? Why am I doing what I'm doing? What makes me different than anybody else doing the exact same thing?  Read more...

Melissa and Trevor Wedding Teaser

This is the first in a long run of teasers we are putting out for all our Short Films.

Melissa and Trevor were married at the Ponte Family Estate Winery in Temecula, California. The day could not have been more beautiful and I can't wait to finish the Short Film. Melissa and Trevor were a pleasure to work with and their family and friends seemed to all really enjoy the day. There is just something about being at a winery that makes everything just look that much better so we didn't have any trouble pulling off some pretty cool shots and really shooting what the day was really about.  Read more...

Paris and Hani Wedding at Nixon Library

Paris and Hani were married at beautiful Nixon Library in Yorba Linda, California and we were blessed to be a part of their day.

To state upfront, Paris and Hani held God in their relationship and you can clearly see that they have a bond between them that differs from most. Working with couples that have a deeper sense of love for each other always inspires me to be a better husband and father to my children. Not to stray to far from the blog at hand, but part of why I enjoy so much working in the wedding industry is that it is a constant reminder of that sense of intimate connection and pure joy that couples have when first married.  Read more...
