Cinematic Wedding Highlights – Arlene & Ryan

I kinda fall in love with each couple I work with. We get so invested in their relationship as we get to know them better during the planning of the wedding shoot. On the day, I just love how the nerves in the early morning get replaced with excitement just before the ceremony and a general party mood right after. It’s one of the great things about this type of work. I get to hang out with people when they are happy!

We did both photo and video coverage of Arlene and Ryan’s wedding. I love being able to use both video and stills to document the day. The stills give you a few, select, frozen moments in time. They have an appeal in that you are left to imagine the sounds and movement surrounding the moment. As a couple, you really want those one or two iconic images that you can frame or put on canvas to hang in your home. My favourite from this wedding is the moment just as the groom flings the garter and the boys are poised and ready to “pants” him. Their expressions are priceless. What I particularly love is that we were able to capture that moment as a photo and then blend it in with the video of that crazy Filipino tradition. (Watch out for it near the end of the movie).

Yes, photos are great, but the real emotion is in the video. Ryan’s mom’s speech about how much she is going to miss him had me all choked up thinking about how much I will miss Jonah when he is all grown up and leaves home. Those moments are why you absolutely MUST get video for your wedding. It’s the only way to preserve the speeches and the vows and the thousand other moments that deserve to live on after the day is done.

Enjoy the video and here are a couple more stills for you too…

Hope & Steve – Cinematic Feature

As so often happens with wedding cinematography, we were a last minute option for Hope and Steve. I am so glad they decided we were worth the investment!

There are so many fantastic memories about this day but the one that really stands out for me is the father-daughter dance. There is a beautiful close-up of him whispering in her ear: “Don’t be sad, you will always be my little girl”. Beautiful. The whole day was full of laughter and beautiful little moments like that.

Hope and Steve, you guys are off to a great start. You are perfect for each other and we wish you a long life filled with love!

Here are some still captures from the amazing footage…




Analee & Ian – Cinematic Wedding Highlights

I met Analee and Ian in the depths of winter. We shot a beautiful Save the Date video early in the year and I was excited to see what they had in store for the big day.

Spectacular. Just spectacular!

The highlight for me while editing this shoot was definitely the lanterns. I spent 5 years in Taiwan and every year there was a lantern festival where the sky what lit up by thousands of these beautiful paper lanterns. Each one carrying the hopes and prayers of the family that sent it up to the heavens. For a couple like Analee and Ian who have known each other for most of their lives my wish is that they learn to fall more in love with each other with every passing year.

Here are a couple of stills I grabbed from the video…


Marie Cecile & Matthew – A Multicultural Celebration

It’s not often you see a wedding with so many diverse cultural elements woven into the day. Marie Cecile and Matthew actually had 3 costume changes and 2 dance performances at the reception, not to mention the traditional Filipino performers that entertained the crown throughout the evening. Never a dull moment!

The couple had some bad luck in the run up to the big day, culminating in Marie Cecile’s parents not being given their travel documents in time to be there for the wedding. I will be putting more of the longer version online later for those who couldn’t be there. They got through the hurdles of the day so now they are sure to have a lifetime of smooth sailing from here on in!

Thanks as always to Manny Sousa for being so easy to work with on the day. Also a shout out to The Hilton for the great meal.



Mikyla & Nicolas – Cinematic Feature

There is nothing quite like a sunny Manitoba Summer day to make you feel the love. Add a country wedding between a couple so clearly head over heals for each other to the mix and it’s a recipe for ear to ear smiles all round!

Kris and I made the early morning drive out to Winkler to shoot Mikyla and Nicolas’s wedding early this Summer. With the birds chirping and the Cicadas buzzing all around it was easy to get into the breezy Summer vibe that the couple created for this celebration. Any time the groom is wearing flip-flops to a wedding is guaranteed to be a good time! The reception took place in an old bard that was decorated spectacularly well. It was like something right off the pages of a bridal magazine under the heading “Elegant Country Wedding”.

We always strive to make our movies reflect the personalities of the couple. Watch till the end to see a funny little incident we recreated just for these two crazy kids!

Here are a couple of still frames from the video to get you started…



Jill & Mike – A Clear Lake Wedding Music Video

Janelle and I drove out to Clear lake to shoot Jill and Mike’s wedding movie. We always knew it was going to be a good one, but there is no way we could have known how much fun it would be to shoot the music video part of the day!

From the lake front to the beautiful open fields to the forested areas… there were just so many amazing little places to shoot. A couple of months before the wedding Jill sent out a little instructional video on the dance moves she wanted the wedding party to practice for the grand entrance. I suggested we shoot the rehearsals too so we could cut them into the entrance and then we decided the best thing would be to just make a little music video of the whole thing. So here it is….


Gurjinder and Charnjit – Teaser

Just a little taste of the reception at the Marlborough Hotel in Winnipeg. What a beautiful reception it was!

Melissa & Jamie – Wedding Video Highlights

Some couples explode with love for each other the first time they lock eyes. Some couples start out as friends. There is no right or wrong way.

There is only your way.

Jamie and Melissa started out as friends. Judging by the way they look at each other and the way they respect each other and the way it’s so obvious they get a kick out of making each other happy… they have found their path together. We were just along for the ride.

It was a scorching hot summer day and the Leo Mol  looked just beautiful. As did the bride!
We also shot an amazing video as a DVD invitation for the couple some time ago. It’s a much more memorable way to invite your guests to Save the Date of the wedding. Here is the invitation and the Highlights are after that…

Highlights – Wendy and Reagan – Winnipeg wedding Videographer

Wendy and Reagan got hitched in July. It was a beautiful day and a beautiful celebration. The B Crew covered the earlier parts of the day and then I joined them at the reception after I finished my shoot. What can I say? I am a workoholic!
When you listen to Wendy’s sister talk about the couple and when you see them together on the dance floor, it’s just so obvious that they are meant for eachother. It’s seeing that sort of emotion that drew me to this work in the first place and it is what I love most about what I get to do for a living.
Enjoy the video!

Been a while… lots of videos coming in the next few months!

Been a while since I had 5 minutes to write a blog post. I guess that’s what happens when business starts pumping! It has been a fantastic summer and I am now settling into the winter editing phase.
With that in mind, here is the Same day Edit from my last wedding of the year this past Friday.

Jackie and Justin – Same day Edit

Jackie and Justin got married in Assiniboine Park on a beautiful sunny Summer day. I will tell you more about it when we get to the full edit, but for now, here is a little Same day Edit we put together for them to play at the reception…

Some Kind Words about us (#fb)

I hired Sean Philips and a moving picture studios for my October wedding and WOW did he ever deliver!!!
I really think that having a videographer there was the best decision that I could have ever made for my wedding
Sean’s work is amazing, he is so talented and kind Sean is a real down to earth guy who just genuinely wants what you
want, to make you the very best wedding video possible and believe me it absolutely will be! when you go to his web
site and you see all of these awesome brilliant and totally inspired wedding videos you may think to yourself I hope he does as
good of a job on ours as he did on there’s “I did” and the truth is it will be even better because it will be you and the love of your life
and all your family celebrating one of the happiest days of your life.

When you really think about it and I urge you too! you can always put on your dress and get your hair done and rent a tux on any day
and pay a photographer to take a pretty picture at any location, don’t get me wrong photographers are great and all but they can’t capture everything?
a photo just can’t capture The look in his eyes the first time he see’s you in “The Dress” a photo can’t capture the beauty of you walking down the isle like
the princess you always knew you could be to your very own prince charming, a photo can’t capture everything you worked so hard on to get just right!
and then there’s your first dance as husband and wife, the music, the way he held you, how happy you felt in those moments swaying across the dance floor
and no photographer no matter how good can capture that but Sean Philips can!

I wouldn’t trust anyone but Sean Phillips with this important task I guarantee you he will do his very best every time, he puts in 110% on every video he does
and it totally shows. Trust me if you hire a moving picture studios you will be the happiest bride in the world when you get your custom HD DVDs
hopefully this will soon be the best choice you have ever made

If you are still not sure about who to hire as this is a big decision and would like to talk with someone who has been there and hired them
contact a moving picture studios and they will give you my info I would love to tell you all about my experience with my videographer
and the company

hoping you all have great wedding days
Ashley and Cory from Flin Flon
