A Portrait Film with Rafael Badillo Photography

This is a personal project that I (R) am excited to share with you. While in Dallas we had the opportunity to meet some awesome friends, many of them also involved in the wedding industry. I was excited at the opportunity to document a bit of Rafa, Vero, and their life. They are wedding photographers, but my intention with this film was to use cinema to tell a bit more of who they are as people. It’s much more of a portrait than previous works, but it has as much of us in it as every other wedding wedding work we share.

Here’s to 2018!

We often have to talk about our work, and each time we introduce it we are reminded how much we love it. It is not just about the sound or the music. It is not just about the look. It is about your moments, your hopes and dreams, accomplishments, past and present, some fiction and lots of reality, stories, relationships, raw emotion. Our work is not only about capturing your wedding day, but also about capturing THAT for which you are marrying. LOVE. It is about us discovering who you are, and painting a piece with those feelings + the essence of it all. Thank you, clients, friends, and fellow artists for your trust and support. It is because of you that Robert Oberg Wedding Films continues to exist.

2018 looks pretty big from where we are standing right now, just a few days into it. We’ve got goals, and I’m sure we’ll also face some challenges, but hey… let’s make the best of it all! MEXICO, we are still open for 2018 bookings. CHINA, we’ll see you this coming Fall (We are filming weddings there in September & October!). Here’s to a year full of love and art.

Mexico Destination Wedding Videographers

Hola México! Editamos un pequeño reel para nuestro Instagram, pero se los compartimos también por aquí. Es un gran gusto ver trabajos pasados y encontrar tanto amor y emoción en cada film. Es imposible incluir todos nuestros favoritos en un minuto porque realmente hay algo que nos gusta mucho en cada una de las bodas que hemos compartido con ustedes. Pero bueno! Quizá tanto material nos dé la oportunidad de hacer otros mini-reels como este en el futuro.

Ya nos siguen en Insta? @robertobergweddingfilms

We edited a one minute reel for our Instagram, but we may as well share it here! It is always a true joy to go through previous work and find so much love and emotion in each film. It is impossible to include all our favorites in one minute because I am serious, there’s something we love in each wedding we’ve shared with you all. But hey! It may allow for more of these mini-reels in the future.

Parallels // A Black and White Wedding Video

Cinematography and Editing: Robert and Sunny
Photography: Jojo Pangilinan Photographers
Venue: W Dallas Victory Hotel

How about looking at a wedding film as if it were a real film? Actually, perhaps even more real than some real films. See… actors and actresses, set designers, directors, writers, big productions and everyone involved, often times borrow inspiration from life. We have life and real moments to work with. So that is one of our goals: to portray real situations and real people from a cinema perspective. Using sound and images not only for their aesthetic qualities, but seeking meaning in them and appreciating the little (or big!) things that make each wedding unique. Making an honest yet cinematic portrait of our couples, their friends, and their day. Hope you all enjoy this one!

P.S. Guys, go check out Jojo Pangilinan Photographers. Super talented husband and wife. They were so awesome to work with at this wedding.

Love Stories

Una Bomba Atómica Romántica Cursi

Just a few weeks ago I (Robert) got a phone call from Frank, a good friend of mine. He is currently getting some professional training in the US, just so that he can later apply for a good working position. It is a difficult time because his wife has to stay back here in Mexico for now. Frank was planning to visit town just for a few days, so he called to share something he had in mind. This little film came out as a result.

We haven’t posted something like this before, but we believe our brand is about people, family, and relationships just as much as it is about weddings. Important moments in life do not only happen at big events, but they are everywhere around us. It is particularly special to see how marriage truly is the beginning of a new adventure, with its ups and downs (as Frank says), but you can always choose to make the best of it.

Special thoughts go out to those families and relationships that have to be separated because of work…

Hi Mexico!

We don’t normally share personal stuff on here, but the support from past clients, friends, and other professionals in the industry has always been incredible, so I feel it necessary to share this update.

In a few words… we have moved out of America down to Mexico! It was decided in the middle of 2016. I won’t go too much into details, but I must say that from the business side of things, being in a comfortable + successful stage, meeting professional goals whenever set and already being part of a network, leaving everything back in the US was a very tough decision.

When I first went to America for school years ago I had no idea where that would take me. Somewhere along the way I met the love of my life, Sunny, and we started this adventure called Robert Oberg Wedding Films. Now we are back in my home country, with a lot of experiences we would not change, and with new goals and dreams. Some change once in a while is good, and we can’t complain: the food here is amazing, we live 15 minutes away from a lovely beach, and there’s family/relatives all around. Sometimes, however, we continue to miss Texas…

The Greatest Gift // Full Length Wedding Video

Cinematography and Editing: Robert and Sunny
Photography: Philip Thomas
Ceremony: First Methodist Houston
Reception: Brennan’s of Houston

We are sharing one of our longer edits today! Our goal when making a wedding film is finding a way to show who our clients and their families are, where they are coming from, their stories, and the reason behind the way they love. We are always looking for those small moments that will bring that very unique and personal element in what we do. This wedding couldn’t have been more perfect for this. A family of four daughters, celebrating the wedding of their last.

In our own life I’ve been able to experience the gift of a beautiful family, the gift of marriage, and the gift of love. We love how we had the opportunity to present this through this film. Even though life doesn’t exactly repeat itself, it’s amazing to find those little stories that you can always feel identified with. It is beautiful when you can connect with others and find that their experiences and views compliment your own…
