When I tell potential and future brides that we film from start to finish and offer no time limits on their wedding day, most of them are shocked to hear that.  I believe that when you hire DVB to film and document your wedding, you have me and my staff for the entire day.  We have no place else to be and we just love what we do.

This theory became true a few weeks ago when I hung out with Charlene and Chris for their love story interview and Engagement Session .  We started about two in the afternoon and didn’t end until about 10 that night and I couldn’t ask for a better day.

After finishing their love story interviews, we ventured out and roamed all over downtown New Orleans to take their Engagement Photos.  We had a blast walking along the river and down Bourbon Street just taking photos everywhere.  One of my favorite stops during our session was at Tropical Isle and getting a photo of Charlene and Chris with the Hand Grenade.  It was awesome.

The first time I met Erica and Sean, I knew something was up. They couldn’t stop smiling and laughing during our wedding consult and all this was going on at 8 in the morning. As we sat there and talked about their wedding, I knew that their day as going to be a blast.

Erica and Sean brought that same happy attitude to their Engagement Session last week at Audubon Park and they were a blast to work with.  Sean has to be one of the funniest grooms I’ve ever met and it was difficult to keep a straight face on when he decided to do something silly for the camera.  I can only imagine how fun their wedding will be and they said numerous times that their wedding will be the best day of their lives.

One of the first things I noticed when meeting Sarah for her consultation last summer was the amount of energy she had.  She was fast thinking, fast moving, and generally thinking out loud for ideas for her own wedding video when I was showing her samples of my work.  I loved the energy that she brought to our meeting.

She had that same energy when I filmed her Save the Date Video with her fiancée Kevin.  It was a gorgeous day to film and Sarah was ready to run and she ran a lot.  One of the funnier moments of the day was watching Sarah try to recreate one of their outings at the park and she just wiped out.  Kevin and I couldn’t stop laughing and we laughed for a few moments.

Sarah and Kevin are getting married on June 1, 2013 and you can view their wedding website at colesgunn.ourwedding.com

Sammy and Kristy are getting married on November 16, 2013 at St. Louis Cathedral and recently I shot their Engagement Photos at their home.  I can honestly say that it was one of the most laid back sessions I’ve ever done.  Both of them are great people to be around and it shows with their Engagement Photos.

I was referred to Kristy by one of my former brides Jeanne and I can’t thank her enough for referring them to me.  One of the great things about both Sammy and Kristy are that they are funny.  I was laughing more at their photo suggestions they wanted and they all came out great.  The photos definitely show off their personality and great sense of humor.

They were both wonderful to work with and I can’t wait to do more with them.  This was just the beginning of our many photo and video sessions leading up to the their wedding next November.  Please enjoy their photos in the post and I can’t wait to post more photo and video of this awesome couple

 

 

 

“I know her” was the common theme of the night when I first met Robert and Caroline during their wedding consultation.  Almost every video sample I showed Robert and Caroline, she would say “I know her”  It became even more comical when I showed her photos on my iPad and she kept saying I know her, her too.  Caroline basically knew about 3/4 of all my brides.

To add to the six degrees of separation, she played volleyball in high school and played against my brother  during her playing days and even knows some of my contacts in my volleyball coaching circles.  It was pretty amazing and neat that we had so much in common from brides to volleyball.  I knew that this would be a perfect match between us and me.

On Father’s Day, I met Robert and Caroline for their engagement session at Audubon Park and it was a picture perfect day.  We took photos all over the park and even managed to hop on the golf course to snap a few on the green.  It was a great day and I even got to met Robert’s son and take some photos of them on this Father’s Day.  It was perfect.

I can’t wait to get started on even more pre-wedding sessions with Robert and Caroline.  They are scheduled to get married on March 23, 2013 at St. Rosalie’s Church in Harvey.

The first time I met Kellie and Christi I knew that they were good people.  We sat there and talked about everything from their favorite band going up the New Kids on the Block, them knowing each other since they were 6 years old and everything else including their wedding day this November 16.

A few weeks ago Janell and I took their engagement photos at their home, Lafreniere Park, and Audubon Park.  It was a great day to shoot and I always enjoy introducing my assistants to our clients.  Janell took control of the shoot and Kellie and Christi were very comfortable with her direction behind the camera.

Everything was great from the start and I can’t wait to get started on their love story to be shown at the rehearsal dinner.

I love the fact that Tanya and Darwin are getting married in her grandfather’s church and that her grandfather is actually going to marry them.  How awesome is that?  My grandparents were very special to me and hearing that Tanya’s Grandfather would be marrying them just blew me away.

I then asked Tanya if she wanted to do a Engagement Session at the church and she quickly jumped on the idea.  On the day of her shoot, I was able to met her aunt and grandfather at the church and all of us were able to walk around the church and see how beautiful it was.

They are getting married on Match 9, 2013 and this session was the start of our numerous photo and film sessions leading up to their big day.  To view more photos from this day, please visit our Facebook fan page.

I always enjoy working on love story interviews.  It allows me the opportunity to get to know my clients better and to hear their story from the beginning of their relationship all the way to the wedding day.The whole creative process of the video is a joy to work on and I loved hearing Meagan and Ryan’s story during their love story session.  They had mentioned to me that they were high school sweethearts and those are some of the best stories to hear.  I love the fact that they met during their first day of school as freshmen, were friends all through that and finally started going out just before graduation.  They had a great story and one of the best parts to their session was Meagan’s back yard.

We normally venture out to different locations to film portions of the love story, but Meagan suggested her back yard and it was beautiful.  She had about two acres of land and my favorite area was her deck that overlooked the swamp.  It was awesome and gave us wonderful footage to film and take great photos.  Meagan and Ryan have been fantastic to work with and I can’t wait to show them their love story video and film their wedding.  They are getting married on March 3, 2012.

A few weeks ago I met up with Alexis and Jim for their casual engagement session at City Park.  It was a wonderful afternoon with them and it helped me get to know the soon to be married couple a little bit better.  I’ve always enjoyed getting to know my clients personally and I’ve got to know Alexis and Jim a little more during this session.  I first met Alexis during all the planning for D’Andra and Buddy’s wedding and she was an awesome Maid of Honor for D’Andra.  She kept me in the loopt for everything that was going to happen and was there for anything D’Andra needed during her day.  To describe her job in one word as the Maid of Honor, she was awesome.

I was thrilled when Alexis emailed me asking if I was free to film her wedding to Jim.  I’m always humbled when someone is referred to me or remembers the work I’ve done for their family and friends.  Alexis and Jim are a great couple and I can’t wait  to get them infront of the camera for an upcoming family shoot and their wedding in March.  They are getting married this March 24, 2012

Laurie and Javier are getting married on June 30, 2012 and last week I realized that we were one year away from their special day and I wanted to do something extra for them.  Several texts and a phone call later, Laurie and Javier meet me at Laketown in Kenner for a quick photo session exactly one year prior to the wedding.

It was a little warm, but it was a beautiful day for their mini shoot.  I enjoy these small sessions as it allows me to get to know my couple and Laurie and Javier are a perfect match.  I can’t wait to get started on our other shoots over the next year and below are several photos from our mini shoot in Laketown.
