Ceremony: Kessler Park United Methodist Church
Reception Venue: Dallas Scottish Rite
Makeup: Erin Blair Makeup and Hair
Coordinator: Sarah Kee at Keestone Events

Earlier this the week I was discussing long distance relationships with my wife, Sunny. We believe this kind of relationship requires more commitment, trust, and effort than usual. We already live in a fast/busy world and everyone has their everyday share of pressure… distance is not something we would usually want to factor in a relationship. Still… on the bright side, overcoming this challenge may be rewarding and the couple can have a closeness that would have not been possible otherwise. This is why we love it when we see couples like Lee and Kelsey, a couple that despite it all they made it work. We got to film their wedding rehearsal and we had the opportunity to learn more about their story, how their friends and relatives were able to see that even with the distance their relationship and love grew together. Their Highlights is built around the emotions and moments of their day, but if you liked it we invite you to check their Feature Film HERE, where you can learn more of their story…

Alejandro Calore – An Online Session

A little over a week ago I had the opportunity to have an online mentoring session with Alejandro Calore. For those of you that don’t know, Alejandro Calore is a wedding filmmaker that has taken a very different approach than the one usually found in the wedding industry. He has applied true concepts of cinema, and he knows how to make a piece of art more than just a wedding film. His work communicates something very unique, beautiful, and often times poetic. It was an incredible opportunity for me to learn new things from someone I respect, and after years in the business it finally came my turn to write a review:

“I have been part of the wedding filmmaking industry for some years now, but since the moment I found about Alejandro Calore and his work, he stood out as very different and truly inspiring. I became very interested in his ideas and approach, and I was very glad to find him to be not only a very talented artist, but also a very approachable person. For a long time I waited for the opportunity to attend either one …

John & Katie

Cinematography and Editing: Robert J. P. Oberg + Sunny

Photography: Amy Herfurth
Ceremony: Dallas First Baptist
Reception Venue: The Adolphus Hotel
MUA: Tracey Melton
Coordinator: Laura Hendricks at Stardust Celebrations
DJ: Marcus Rollins
Flowers: The Garden Gate

We know that every girl dreams with their wedding day since a young age, and in Katie’s case this day meant something extra special. As her sister said during the toast, Katie always “believed in love at first sight, a true love’s kiss, and happily ever after.” This wedding was full of love and happiness. John and Katie had their ceremony at Dallas First Baptist with a reception following at the Adolphus Hotel. We had some very touching moments throughout the day, some beautiful words were spoken both at the ceremony and the reception, and we were honored to be there capturing this memory for such a loving couple. We are glad to be sharing their Highlights Film with all of you…

David & Samantha

Cinematography and Editing: Robert J. P. Oberg and Sunny

Photography: Alison Chang (Aleeviate)
Ceremony: Arlington Chinese Church
Reception Venue: The Clubs of Prestonwood

This wedding was special to us in a very different way. We had met David and Samantha to chat about the plans of the day, we knew David’s dad would be the officiating pastor, we knew there would be a first look, we knew the couple was super sweet and they would be great to work with, but still… this did not prepare us for how beautiful it would all be. The whole day was amazing, truly a wedding to remember. I think it was all VERY meaningful, not only to Samantha and David, but also to all their friends and family. You were able to feel it being there, we even got teary eyed behind the camera more than once. It was all very warm, intimate, very close, and we felt a connection with David and Samantha and their story in a very personal way. We were able to see their commitment to each other and to God, their passion, their faith and their love. What a blessing and an honor to film this wedding. We are so happy for David and Samantha and wish them the best…

On a personal note

As we are in the middle of wedding season we wanted to write a post telling you a little about our journey so far. We considered different alternatives before jumping into wedding cinematography full time (back in 2014). We had already been shooting weddings on the side for some years and there was just something special about it… the awesome couples and their love stories, the emotions of the wedding day, the beautiful and touching ceremonies, the challenges, the creative side of the job, the artistic and also sentimental value of what we were producing. The fact is that weddings won our hearts. Wedding filmmaking became more than just work, it became something we loved. In the end, we believe, love and care are fundamental values in what we are doing. We decided we wanted to make amazing memories for our clients, not only as professionals but also doing it with passion and dedication.

We are true believers that our job is not only about capturing beautiful images, it is not only about being good at business… even more than anything …

Allen and Hannah were a joy to work with and we had an awesome time filming their wedding. There were notes written to each other, they had a beautiful ceremony at St. Michael’s, and their reception (at The Cotton Mill) was not only fun but we also got to hear some more of Allen and Hannah’s story from their close family members. When you see Allen and Hannah together you can instantly see that they have a special connection and truly love each other. We are so glad that we had the chance to capture such a special time in their life…

Hair & Makeup: Blo
Wedding Venue: Coles Garden
Coordinator: DPlazzo Events
Event Planning: Belle of the Ball
Florist: Tony Foss
DJ: BTP Productions
Cake: Mishelle Handy
Dress: The Bridal Boutique

This was our first time visiting or shooting a wedding at Oklahoma, and it was a beautiful one. We had been looking forward to this day for a while. It was the last wedding of our 2015 year, we knew Sydney and Tyson would be awesome to work with, and there is always that special something about winter weddings that (in our opinion) makes them extra romantic. We arrived a day earlier to take some shots with Sydney and Tyson at the beautiful venue (Coles Garden), and from our first in-person meeting we could already tell these two were a perfect match.

The wedding day came and it was perfect. From all the details, to the venue, to the awesome vendors and the incredible couple. There were so many heartwarming moments. Weddings like this remind us why are we doing weddings in the first place. It is because of the people, because of the beautiful moments in life, memories, but most of all love…
