Hawk Medicine Todd Boston ONE Official Music Video

Hawk Medicine from the album ONE (Billboard Top Ten) by Award Winning Multi-Instrumentalist/Composer Todd Boston. The inspiration for the composition is the feeling of rising above our fears to see from a more broad perspective what limits us and to soar into reaching our full potential.

Julia and Rob got married at The O'Donnell House in Palm Springs, one of the oldest and most beautiful venues in town.

Marianne and Ryan’s Wedding // Blowing Rock, North Carolina

Heavy clouds blowing through the Smokey Mountains; rain gently falling on the streets, reflecting the Christmas lights that decked the town; fog rolling over a wintry lake as a wedding party stands on its banks witnessing a wedding unfold. Marianne and Ryan’s wedding in Blowing Rock, North Carolina, was breathtakingly beautiful. Graded with FilmConvert.

Hilton and Danny’s Wedding // Joshua Tree

Hilton and Danny have a strong connection with Joshua Tree. In the film, you can see a polaroid of them from a prior visit stuck in the frame of a poster in room 8 of the Joshua Tree Inn where Danny got ready. The legend of Gram Parsons drew the music-loving couple to Joshua Tree, and as Cap Rock in the national park plays a big part in the Parsons story, that’s where they decided to get hitched. We shot a roll of Super 8 film for Hilton and Danny as the fun retro vibe really fit them and their connection to the history and legends of the area. This cut in with the video footage we shot for one of our first hybrid film/videos. Video footage graded with FilmConvert.

Somewhere Joshua Tree

Somewhere Joshua Tree has a collection of stunning and unique Airbnbs around the Joshua Tree area and they wanted a brand video that captured the feeling their guests have when visiting the desert. They asked us to create a short film that included new footage we shot for them as well as using some existing footage from our weddings and elopements in Joshua Tree (with the couples’ permission, of course!) It’s been a while since we shot a commercial project and we loved getting to shoot here and show off the beautiful desert where we live. Graded with FilmConvert.

Jenny and Nick's Save-The-Date At Coachella 2019

Since you can't take professional cameras into Coachella without a press pass, we met up with Jenny and Nick for their save-the-date video inside the festival armed only with a GoPro camera. It just goes to show that it's not all about the best gear. With an awesome couple and the right attitude, you can get fantastic results. Shot on a GoPro Hero 7. Graded with FilmConvert.

Project Positive People

In a world full of pain, prejudice, and negativity, I set out on a mission to spread love. I made posters about ways I hope to personally change and become a better person and then spent two days introducing myself to strangers and inviting them to join the journey for positive change. Turns out beyond the television screen and the violence portrayed on the news, kind beautiful people are easy to find—you just have to step outside and say hello. This video was shot in Rhode Island and Connecticut.
