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.

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.

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.
