Danielle & Bob's Washington D.C. Wedding

When we think of infectious laughter, warmth, and fun, we think of Danielle. She found the love of her life in the caring, endearing, and loving Bob, and we're just so happy for the two of them!

A Meridian House wedding in the heart of downtown, D.C. was their celebration of choice, and oh man, are we glad we got to be a part of their day! Watch their highlight film to relive moments from getting ready at Danielle's childhood home to the sparkler send-off! As always, we spent the entire day capturing everything, from the stationary details to the loving glances, soft touches, and all the way through to the exuberant first dance fist pumping. Don't believe us? You'll just have to hit play and see for yourself!

Keep a look out for some of our favorite details and moments:

  • Danielle putting on her earrings, which were given to her mom from her dad, who has since passed but was there in spirit all day long.
  • The BOUQUETS
  • Their church on Capitol Hill (our neighborhood!) with its incredible interiors, especially the star-covered ceiling and sconces.
  • Footage with the clear umbrellas!!! (Rain drops have silver linings, guys!)
  • The epic garter toss
  • Danielle's laugh
  • (Last but certainly not least) The first dance fist pumper (You'll need to watch till the end!

To Danielle and Bob, congratulations! It's been an honor and the greatest pleasure. Cheers to building a wonderful life together in Atlanta!

Ultraviolet inspiration meets romantic personalization

We created this film at a styled shoot, but this time, a real couple played our bride and groom. Their words were genuine and their laughter was contagious. Needless to say, we were living our best lives getting to know them and capturing their true love. Our favorite part? They sat down to read love letters to each other, and we think those words add so much heart to the film. Do you love the idea of personalizing your film with letter reading on the big day? Let us know in the comments!

What in the world is a styled shoot?! We found out and then we made a film.

It takes two to make a thing go right, and it takes a team of really talented folks to execute a beautiful wedding.

Well, would you looky here.

We're launching a business! Well, sort of. You see, we've filmed weddings together for years, just never as a couple. Now that we are #engaged, we decided it was time to make our work Facebook (and internet) official! So here it is, we're so happy you found us.

We're hoping to use this space as a means for you to get to know us, our style, and as a way to add a little light-heartedness to your day! 

I'm Deanna, a Long Island native, current D.C. dweller, and entrepreneur. Since graduating college, I've hardly had a "real job," and always pursued content creation for businesses. That's when I met and fell in love with the wedding industry (lol, did you think I was going to say Grant? More on him, later.). I've filmed weddings, edited them, and consulted with wedding vendors on how to market themselves with content that I was lucky enough to create. It's been very rewarding and an overall blast.

Insert us getting engaged.

Now we can get Grant involved. We became best friends practically day one of college. Maybe I'll spill the details in a later post, but it wasn't until a recently that we reconnected and realized we were clearly meant to be together. It didn't take long for us to make it official. I'm talking, like, a month.

Insert Grant & crew being hotshots at the Tony's

Since graduation, Grant's been a freelance cinematographer and has worked with brands like ClearChannel, Vita CoCo, Westfield, and The Tony's, but nothing inspires and fulfills him like weddings do. It's the truth!

It's funny how we both have that draw to weddings– they're really the most magical events. (And now we get to plan our own!!!!)

I've always admired Grant/raved about how talented he was to my friends and family. I'm so excited to be able to work alongside him again, surround ourselves with love, and create stunning wedding films together. There's something about video that captures the essence of people and emotions that photos just cannot. We're both captivated by that authenticity. We want to preserve it for couples in love so they have it to treasure and share for generations to come.

Anyway, we hope you stay tuned! If you stopped by to read this, leave us a comment and let us know we're not alone in this corner of the interwebs!
