Andrew Firestone & Ivana Bozilovic Wedding in Super 8mm Film at Crossroads Estate, Firestone Vineyard.
Andrew and Ivana booked Russell Fowler Studios to shoot their wedding in Super 8mm Film. I think they made a perfect choice having their wedding documented in this beautifully artistic medium. Andrew & Ivana were fantastic, hospitable and gracious. Not to mention extremely photogenic to the max. Every once and a while I thought, wow, this couple is more attractive and have more charisma in person than in any movie, tv show or magazine cover I’ve ever seen them in. I think the webster’s dictionary is right now as we speak, changing the picture for the word photogenic to one with them in it. Yep. So besides, having such marvelous subjects to shoot, and being involved in one of the most lovely weddings of all time, I must say, the Firestone Vineyards people as a whole are top shelf in my opinion. Tonya Szele, their wedding planner and recent former head honcho over the events and practically everything else at Firestone pulled it off in her usual easy-going style and grace. Jill Remy, the current on-site planner for all of Firestone Vineyards, teamed up with Tonya to knock this one out of the park, or “meadow” if you will. All I had to do was try not to faint from all the beauty filling my lens. It was truely a breathtaking day of shooting. They say pictures are worth a thousand words so here are some photos provided by their exquisite photographers “mi belle inc.” Enjoy. Oh and you can see a super fun aged clip by clicking on the picture below…….sooooo go ahead and take a look.

The Wu Tang Clan’s Robert Diggs (RZA) and Talani Rabb’s Four Season Biltmore Wedding in Santa Barbara August 29th, 2009
Rebecca Gigandet of Imagine Weddings in Santa Barbara, asked me if I like Rap music, I said “yes I do”. She said good, because Robert Diggs of the Wu Tang Clan and finace Talani Rabb just picked me to shoot their wedding. Sweet! I thought, there’s gonna be Crystal and Hundred dollar bills flowing freely, I’m in! HaHa. Just kidding, well as it turned out, they were the sweetest most loving couple you could imagine. Very COOL, but sweet and loving. They honeymooned on a tropical island and took one of my Super 8mm Film cameras to document their stay. Enjoy a trailer of their wedding at Four Seasons Bilmore in Montecito below. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q8ODD1GEAn4

Testimonial Email to the Planner:
I thought you would want to see the e-mail Talani sent me below. Thank you
so so much for taking such good care of her. I would love a copy of the
wedding when you have some time to send me one.
How are you? I hope all is well. I just wanted to let you know that we just
received the wedding dvd and Russell did a wonderful job! He really captured
all the beauty of that day. I would highly recommend him to other couples.
Thank you so much for everything again.
Talani and Robert.
“Thank you Talani and Robert”
I had so much fun tagging along with Krista Jon and her flower girls for a couple of her weddings. Krista Jon is one of the most sought after wedding flower designers in Southern California. Not only is Krista Jon an amazing floral design artist, but her passion for beautiful flowers and her emotional connection with her brides make her stand in a class all her own. I’m proud to showcase this video showcasing the gracious and talented Krista Jon. Enjoy!!!

Tara & Kurts wedding on Big Island Hawaii, at Four Seasons Hualalai was absolutely gorgeous! Planner Beth Helmstetter Events is amazing and so great to work with. Photographer Toby Hoogs is great and lives there on Big Island, so he gave me all the local tips that made my week long stay the best. Last year I was so fortunate to get to shoot two weddings in Hawaii, and I’m ready to go back. This is a little “prelude” slideshow that Tara & Kurt asked for, using only their favorite photos from their three day celebration. So enjoy beauty of Hawaii through Toby’s eyes. I’ll put up more clips asap!
