New Wedding Rates!

We have updated our wedding prices!

We always try to keep things simple for our clients (but that doesn’t mean that we always know how to best simplify). For the last few years we have had just one core pricing tier for weddings. For the couture experience, however, we offered a number of add-ons and modifications. Also, we had a few secret hidden packages for really short weddings, LDS weddings, military weddings, and a few other types of weddings that didn’t fit our one-size-trying-to-fit-all package. In other words, it became un-simple.

So here we go again! We are now offering three tiers of wedding packages. We didn’t want to follow the trend of naming them after precious metals (“the Brushed Steel Package may seem appealing but if you really love your fiancee you’ll go for the Diamond-Studded Ruby Package…”) we named them after fruit. Just because.

The fruits aren’t arranged in any particular order, they’re just named after fruits that our children most commonly request to eat at home: strawberries, blueberries and bananas.

Don’t worry, we’re not raising prices at all. They have been the same for the last two seasons; we have just restructured the offerings and added a less-expensive tier that begins at $2500. Our combined photo & video packages start at $4500.

You can read the details here. If you have recently booked and feel that one of these new packages better reflects your needs, please just let us know! We’ll take care of you.

Thank you so much to everyone who has left us a positive review on Weddingwire, Yelp or Google! We have had so many wonderful clients over the last few years that we are just thrilled to be in this line of work.

Three weddings at the Georgetown Ballroom in Seattle

This year we have filmed three weddings in a row at the Georgetown Ballroom in Seattle. All three weddings were beautiful in very different ways, and I thought that it would be fun to combine all three of the wedding trailers into one blog post to highlight the variety involved.

All three weddings might appear to be very similar on paper: they all prepared in hotels in downtown Seattle (two of them at the Alexis Hotel, one at the W Hotel), two of them took party buses to Georgetown, and all of them had their ceremonies and receptions in the same spaces. Despite their similarities, the results are very different, and it was wonderful to see how much the personality of each couple was demonstrated in their wedding.

Walking through Machu Picchu

We were fortunate enough to visit Machu Picchu last September, where we took photos and filmed video footage for Destination Peru a travel agency and tour service based in nearby Cusco, Peru. You can view some of the photos from Machu Picchu and Huayna Picchu in this gallery.

Garrett filmed a ton of steadicam footage while we were there, walking through the ruins and trails, and he thought that the nearly-raw footage might be useful to future travelers who are trying to get an idea of what the terrain is like and what they can expect. Garrett has already also cut a cinematic ad for Destination Peru based on some of this footage, but it won’t be ready for a while (composer Richard Williams is writing the music based on the edit, and will be recording the music with an orchestra in 2014).

In the meantime, here’s the walkthrough of Machu Picchu:
