Bridget + Alan Wedding Film Trailer

Fun, fun, fun! That's all I can say about Bridget and Alan. There are so much write about their wedding day! Starting with hot red shoes+garter of Bridget (not to mention her beautiful dress!), ring box that Alan proposed her (very first shot), running a marathon to the goal line with their running shoes on! Reception full of dancing, tears and pure fun... I simply can't wait to put these all fun things together and produce the full film and highlights (with, of course, their favorite song "I Gotta Feeling" by B.E.P!!). I tried my best to give you a little teaser of their wedding day! Enjoy!

QUICK Wide Lens Comp Photo

So, I received Tokina 11-16 f2.8 for the weekend from www.lensrentals.com. By the way, their service is great! Def. recommend.
Since I have only 7D+T2i (with crop sensor), not 5DmkII (with beautiful full sensor), I have to carefully choose the wide angle lesnes. I have owned Canon 24-70 f2.8 L, but never quite felt it was wide enough. So I bought really cheap EF-S lens (18-55 f3.5-5.6) lens just to see the difference. Quality-wise, it's a junk for video. For the photo, maybe it's OK, but for the video recording, I really dislike the quality, but again, it's cheap, what do you expect? Anyway, so I took quick snap shot of my editing room (that I spent about 20 hours per day), and compared side to side. Hope this helps.

Heather + Ken Wedding Film Trailer

I apologize for the delays on wedding film trailer, everyone.
I know our turn around is usually a week to 10days, but with all the wedding that we shot last 2-3 months, things are extremely busy in Orange Studio.
On July 9th, we were invited to film Heather and Ken's wedding at Eaglewood Resort in Itasca for their beautiful outdoor ceremony and reception at the ballroom.
Our "first meet" at the lobby was as emotional and joyful as vows and ring exchange during the ceremony. The weather was absolutely gorgeous during the ceremony as well.
The photo was done by talented Wes Craft from Modern Images Studio (nice to work with you again!).
Congratulations to Heather and Ken!

Joyce + Jun Wedding Film Trailer

"Nice".... that's the word of the day on June 20th wedding of Joyce and Jun.
Everyone was so welcoming and nice to us. No drama, no rushing... just simply "nice".
It made us feel so at ease which helped tremendously to capture such a wonderful wedding from the beginning to the end. I found out a lot about Jun that day... He likes classic rock & roll (Guns&Roses, in particular), and we actually share our "the" favorite Korean artist, Seo Tae-Ji. Joyce was so beautiful that day, and Sonia Roselli did an awesome job on Joyce's makeup. Photo was done by Wayne from Wayne Yuan Photographer. Joyce's mom made such a great impression on me as a parent (thought she was Joyce's sister! So did my wife while watching the footage!) raising three wonderful daughters. There was a grand exit with sparklers at the end of the reception which is always fun to capture! Thank you so much for such a great day, Joyce+Jun!
