Allison + Craig Wedding Highlights

Allison and Craig's wedding was such a fun event. Check it!

This was the video I wanted to launch my wedding film company with. The joy, playfulness, and cinematic opportunity at the wedding was exactly the feel I wanted to base Sandbox Love on. For more about the approach to my company, see below or click here.

Going into the day, Nick, Rob and I planned out how we wanted to do most of the shooting. I rolled around with the glidetrack and wide lenses mostly while Rob "rocked" the 85mm close ups. Nick (quickly earning the nickname "Iron Nick") was using the glidecam to get all of the great sweeping shots. The combination of all of this is a magic combo. We should give it a name.

While we were taking a break and restoring some of our brain's creativity, Cassie and Dan at Los Gatos DJ Company played that first song you heard in the video. I turned to the rest of the team and said, "we're using this."

A huge shout out to Ashley Maxwell and her husband Jason who are incredible photographers, super warm people, and quickly becoming friends. We've shot with them before and can't wait to shoot alongside them again.


  1. Hey, great great video ! I realy like your postproduction... It close to thinks i try to do here in Belgium... But i don't have so good camera... if i understand you are working with Canon Mark 5 and EOS 7D ? is it right ? Do you use special stuffs to control/use it, or just the mainbox and lenses ?

    Well done, sure i'll give inspiration from your work ;)

  2. Hey Pierre,

    We don't really use anything special on our cameras. The Canon 5DmkII is the main camera we use. Gotta love DSLRs!

  3. Good to know about this information on your wedding. Last month, I hired services of the reputed wedding suppliers to arrange my sister-in-law’s wedding at one of the exotic wedding venues. It was an amazing event and had wonderful party.
