Justin + Hayley's Timeless Winter Wedding at Barr Mansion
"OH MY GOSH!!! This is amazing! Justin and I just watched it and - wow. I definitely cried. Thank you so much for capturing our special day. This video is so precious to us. Amazing job!" ~ Justin + Hayley " S o m e t h i n g F o r Y o u r A u d i o " When we asked Justin and Hayley what they would want their wedding video to look like they said they wanted to see their family and friends more than themselves because that's what they cared about most. In response, we explained how much audio dictates our filming process and that we would most likely use the family speeches to develop the creative edit. However, on the wedding day, Hayley surprised us with letters to her parents. She pulled us aside, gave us the letters, and said, “I know you wanted something for your audio, you can record my parents reading these.” The mother and father of the bride read their letters to us in private in Barr Mansion's living room. It was one of the most powerful recordings we've ever made. We know Justin and Hayley will be very moved by it but we think more about how valuable it will be to them in the future. How will they view this recording once their parents have passed? How would we view this if it were our parents and they had passed? It seems there is a duty and an honor as a documentary videographer or photographer to keep people’s far future in mind. We have the unique ability to make people feel like they are in the room and to revisit the past. We can thank Justin and Hayley for giving us this clarity. Going forward, we will keep our couples’ future minds in perspective and deliver timeless memories, not just pretty pictures.

Tia + Stan's Intimate Chinese Wedding at Laguna Gloria & Chapel Dulcinea
"We are extremely lucky to have you as our videographers, this is the best decision I made for my wedding!! You were creative, original, aesthetic, and thoughtful. Thanks for the enormous work on translating, the video turned out beautiful, romantic, classic, and powerful. You two are perfectionists and have put a ton of effort into this. I trusted you and was surprised far beyond my expectations!!" ~ Tia + Stan We loved putting together this unique wedding film for Tia + Stan. It's classic and powerful, as Tia says, and matched her vision for a wedding video. Their wedding ceremony was at Chapel Dulcinea, one of our favorite venues in the Austin area, but the short time slot of 2 hours was not enough to tell their story. We suggested filming a bridal session at Laguna Gloria at The Contemporary Art Museum in downtown Austin and wow, do we love that space! Their story is real and like all good stories has its ups and downs. We aim to reflect that through music, editing, color, and imagery.
Ireen + Don’s Modern Samoan Wedding in Austin, TX
“You are truly talented artists, your creativity and sense of vision shine throughout your work! We didn't have a single worry when it came to photos & video on our special day & the final products came out beautifully. My experience was nothing but flawless. 10/10 Hands down, the best! Thank you Vincent + Chie for capturing such beautiful photos & creating a video that we will watch a million+ times!” ~ Ireen + Don I wish we could have included all the amazing Samoan songs and dances at Ireen + Don's wedding. This is the third couple we've worked with in Austin with Samoan roots, and we love their culture. The way Don + Ireen met is a classic high school love story, and probably how we all thought our own lives would play out. The end of this video makes Chie cry every time, ha! Relationship goals.
Hayden + Bryan's Candlelit Military Wedding Film - Austin, TX | Chapel Dulcinea
Hayden & Bryan were not initially thrilled about a night wedding but it was something they had to do at this time in their lives. Bryan had always wanted to go active in military duty. Prior he had always been in the reserves. He finally got his chance this November but was not offered a station in their home state of Texas. Instead, he would have to move to Georgia in one month, and if Hayden wanted to follow him in his career they would have to be married. That was that. Their parents scrambled to get a venue and vendors together for a wedding in Texas amongst Covid so they could be married in the presence of family. The famous Chapel Dulcinea was their first choice but on such short notice, their only option was a night wedding. "I will admit I was not fond of the idea of a wedding AT NIGHT," Hayden says, but after seeing some other photographer's and videographer's pictures at night she started to become hopeful. Following that, I received an urgent email from their parents within 2 weeks of the wedding date explaining the situation, luckily we were available to film their wedding video. Hayden says, "Between candle lighting and the gas lamps provided it turned out beautiful! It’s definitely not something I could wrap my brain around when I found out. The warm glow made the occasion feel so intimate between every single member of my family right down to the moment I was walking down the aisle with only Bryan in my path. It felt like we were the only ones in the world and all there in this beautiful chapel on this white veil occasion. This was what I wanted. To be surrounded by love and we got that. The lighting was a win and the photos and film looked stunning!" Bryan was sworn in a couple days after the wedding. "That's our story," says Hayden. Good luck in Georgia, thanks for sharing your story with us.
