Angela + Jason || Wedding Highlight Film || The Harper, Costa Mesa

Dancer weddings are always fun. The bride, groom, and bridal party usually quirky and outgoing and down for anything, which makes our jobs super fun. This wedding was a special one because not only were the venue and clients amazing, but this was also the first time we attempted stop motion for group photos. I think the results turned out pretty well, hope you guys like it too!

Thank you Angela and Jason for being awesome, hope you guys love your film, and thanks for the In-N-Out!

Daphane + Jon || Wedding Highlight Film || Wayfarer’s Chapel

I never thought I’d shoot a Kingdom Hearts wedding. Ever since I was 14 years old, probably even younger, I’ve been obsessed with the video game series. I spent hours playing the game, I collected merch, I wrote fanfiction! And so when I heard Daphane and Jon were huge KH fans, I maybe possibly kind of cried just a little bit lol. These two had a gorgeous wedding over at the all glass Wayfarer’s Chapel in Rancho Palos Verdes, followed by a reception at The Grand in Long Beach where they cut their cake with a keyblade and first dance-d to Chikai by Utada Hikaru. You don’t see it in this video, but I also set up a selfie station for them with a “Lucky Emblem” / Hidden Mickey in the background. All in all, my 14 year old heart was very, very happy. Hope you guys like it too!

Vanessa + Neil || Wedding Highlight Film || Marriott Newport Beach

For anyone unfamiliar, Asian weddings can be notoriously long. From Chinese tea ceremonies, to Cambodian hair cutting ceremonies, to traditionally Filipino Catholic masses, to Indian baraats and henna parties, Asian weddings are often multi-day affairs filled with beautiful history and gorgeous traditions. And Vanessa and Neil were lucky enough to fit two in one day!

Jokes aside, I couldn’t help but be touched by how much love and care Vanessa and Neil put into not only celebrating their love, but also each other’s cultures all throughout the day. At the end of the night, they even brought their parents along in dancing to Indian and Filipino music for their parent dances!

All in all, this was definitely one of the most memorable weddings we’ve ever had the pleasure of shooting. Thank you so so much for allowing us to capture all the fun and love of your big day, and hope you guys love your film as much as we love filming it:)

Debbie + Matt || Same Day Edit Wedding Highlight Film || The Villa

Second same day edit of the year and it was a good one. Not only were Debbie and Matt super fun, but Matt is also a huge weeaboo, much like the majority of the JustinElement team, which made our jobs even more fun. We experimented a little and the team handled everything like a dream.

Debbie and Matt, thank you so much for allowing us to document your big day, hope you guys had a blast!

Michelle + Matt || Same Day Edit Highlight Film || Moniker Warehouse, San Diego

Could not have asked for a better wedding to kick off 2019 with! The team ventured down to San Diego for a whopping 12 hour same day edit day, but honestly it almost didn’t feel like work. Even though there wasn’t a strict “bridal party,” Michelle, Matt, & co. were so much fun to shoot, down to dance and derp and joke and just make our jobs so easy. Plus they cried, so y’know, extra credit.

Thanks so much Michelle and Matt for inviting us to be part of your day, and congratulations again!!

Breanne + Jerome || Wedding Highlight Film || Old Ranch Country Club, Seal Beach

This was a lovely wedding to close out the year with, with probably my favorite first look I’ve ever shot. Justin tried a “Marco Polo” themed first look a couple of weddings ago, and Breanne and Jerome was awesome enough to want to try it too, and it was the most adorable thing I’ve ever seen. Thank you guys for being so sweet and fun and making our jobs so easy!

Congratulations you two, and merry Christmas!

Lauren + Adrian || Wedding Highlight Film || The Estate on Second

I love this video. I love this couple, I love this venue, I love their song choice, I love how absolutely fun their wedding party was — everything. Inside you’ll find a couple cool things, from Lauren and Adrian’s custom neon sign to a groomsmen pillow fight. Trust me, it’s super fun.

Thank you both for inviting us to your big day, and happy holidays!

Stacey + Jason || Wedding Highlight Film || The Grand, Long Beach

There’s so much I love about this film, I don’t even know where to begin. I love the tarot card stop motion ring shot. I love the closeup of Jay hugging his parents during ceremony. I love the bridesmaids clapping and gassing up the bride during her photo session. I love how perfect and happy Stacey and Jason look during their first dance.

This entire wedding was absolutely perfect and I really hope you guys enjoy it as much as I did. Congratulations Stacey and Jason, thank you so much for bringing us along for your special day. It was our pleasure to shoot. <3 @dominique

Lauren + Paul || Wedding Highlight Film || Summit House, Fullerton

We had the pleasure of partying Thanksgiving weekend with the newly married Lauren and Paul Carcano at the Summit House in Fullerton. All throughout the day, our couple was nothing but warm and welcoming and it made our jobs just so easy and pleasant. The wedding itself of course, was super fun too, especially Lauren’s mom’s special “lullaby” which she graciously re-enacted for everyone during the reception, and which you can catch a glimpse of here. Thank you Lauren and Paul for letting us document your special day and congratulations guys!

Trina + Alan || Wedding Highlight Film || Long Beach, CA

It’s very exciting to be so close to the end of the year. Looking back and seeing how much our team has grown and learned is just so encouraging. Things that happened only with maximum effort and constant reminders now just happen, and happen well. Alan and Trina’s wedding was no exception. That, and the fact that I love the song the couple chose, made this edit a breeze. Hope you guys like it too:)Enjoy!

Cambodia || JEP Travels

Earlier this year, Justin, Earl, and I got to take venture out to Siem Reap, Cambodia for Bo and Eddie’s weeklong wedding. It was by far the most immersive trip any of us had ever been on with some of the coolest people we’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. Here’s just a little snippet of all our jungle-y shenanigans, hope you guys enjoy:)

Danelle + Brian || Same Day Edit Wedding Highlight Film || Pasea, Huntington Beach

I’ve already gushed a million times but I can’t say enough how much I love this video. Not only are Danelle and Brian total sweethearts but their venues were also absolutely gorgeous and gave us plenty of pretty things to play with. What I’m most proud of though is the Justin Element team. The past six years have been filled with growth, challenges, and learning experiences, and by the end of this wedding, I was just overcome with this amazing sense of accomplishment. The team did such a good job and Justin pulled off a couple amazing boss things and it was just so fulfilling. Thank you everyone for making this same day edit the beautiful thing that it is <3 @dominique

Jane + John || Wedding Highlight Film || Rancho Las Lomas

As beautiful as this wedding day was overall, the best part were the little moments — the deep breath Johnny took right before he said his vows, the bridesmaids comforting a nervous Jane right before the ceremony, Johnny turning to his new wife and asking if she’s having fun right before their reception grand entrance. It’s hard to capture a couple like Jane and Johnny because they’re very subtle with their affection toward each other and other people, but when you do see it, you can’t help but smile. I hope you guys love your film as much as our team enjoyed putting it together. <3 @dominique
