Rachel // Behind-the-scenes Photo Shoot

Last month we were invited to come aboard a creative project put together by producer Natel Hull and photographer Darren Hull. This isn’t our first kick at the can going behind-the-scenes with the team. Being shot in an open dust field, this shoot was by far the dirtiest. These guys know how to put a shoot together and it always pays off.

Check out the behind-the-scenes film to get a sense of what went down that day. Some of the crew we’ve worked with before, and others it was our first time. All of the creative professionals collaborating together make for a wicked end result and just a fun day.

Who is Daniel Abraham?

If you’re like me, I don’t typically read long boring blog posts. I like photos and videos to look at and move on. There has been so much happening this Summer I could write a blog post so long you would never finish it. So here’s the abbreviated version of it:

// My wife and I found out we’re having a little Feen Bean next February! Love that we’re going to parents and feel so blessed. So how would this affect Limelight Studios? Well Melanie has been my 2nd shooter from the beginning so this sent me on a search for a new one so wifey could rest and grow the Feen Bean.

// Enter Daniel Abraham. Daniel is the owner of Icepick Productions here in Kelowna. I met him on the Treelines shoot we did last June. This guy can shoot. It was perfect timing to meet him and he has now helped us with the last bunch of weddings we’ve shot.

// Last weekend was a milestone for Limelight Studios because it was our first 3 wedding weekend. Friday + Saturday + Sunday. Daniel was along for the ride each day and I just wanted to give him a huge shout out and thank him for all his help! He will continue to work with us as a freelance shooter on upcoming weddings. It’s a good break from his usual routine of filming and editing films, documentaries and music videos. Remember his name, because you’ll be watching his music videos and feature films in the future…

// I “love” when companies have a picture of themselves holding their camera on their “about page”….so what better way to introduce Daniel Abraham?…

We worked with Darren Hull on one of the weddings so thanks to him for the photo:

A slew of wedding day highlights will be hitting the blog in the coming weeks. We are behind on them so stay tuned for those!

Thuy + Lang // Video Booth Boutique // Kelowna Weddings

OK, so this is my 3rd blog post this week. Not really sure what that’s all about, but I must have lots to get off my chest…in a good way!

At the end of May, I posted an engagement film with Thuy + Lang. They were married on May 29th, 2010. They wanted our Video Booth Boutique services at their wedding. Well the video and photos are here! To put it lightly…their guests ate it up! If you don’t believe me, watch the highlights:

Here’s a few photos as well. To view all their photos visit this page:

Treelines // Bass Guitar Outtake

We had the chance to spend the day with local Kelowna band, Treelines!

Not only is their music wicked, these guys know how to have a good time. The full video is coming soon but I couldn’t wait to share my favourite outtake from the day from band member Steve Lockhart. It’s worth the watch. Enjoy!

Darren Hull was on location with his crew taking pictures of the boys from Treelines. I got in on the action for this shot. Can’t wait to see all of them!

Deck jumping!

Thuy + Lang // Engagement Film // Kelowna Weddings

Thuy + Lang were married May 29th, 2010. This is their engagement film that was played as a surprise at their reception. I’ll save the details of their wedding to share when we put together a highlight video. If you want to learn how they met and how he proposed, watch this:

Thuy + Lang also booked our Video Booth Boutique for their wedding so we got in on the action with them. Believe it or not that is my good side:

Introducing :: Video Booth Boutique

This has been in the works for a bit of time…but it’s here!

Limelight Studios proudly welcomes Video Booth Boutique to the family. We’ve filmed a lot of weddings since we started in 2004. We’ve seen so many unique weddings on the way. Video Booth Boutique is a way to take it to another level with it’s modern style and class that compliments your wedding day.

The truth is that many couples are on a tight budget and they love the idea of having their whole wedding day filmed, but it’s just not realistically feasible. Video Booth Boutique is the alternative to that. You still get footage from the reception and at a substantially lower cost than a full wedding video.

Don’t get us wrong though, we strongly encourage getting a full-length wedding video of your wedding day and Video Booth Boutique goes hand-in-hand with that as well, offering discounted rates to those couples booking a wedding video.

Video Booth Boutique isn’t limited to weddings. It’s perfect for corporate functions, family reunions, retirement party’s, graduations, and pretty much any event with humans!

We’re very excited about our newest “family member” to Limelight Studios. There are specials running from April to June so contact us to learn more and check out the new site:

We can snap pictures too!

Our Week in Vegas | Workshop + WPPI

It was our first time setting foot on the strip and what a week we had in Vegas. I had high expectations for the events to take place and they were reached and surpassed. I could post a long boring blog entry of everything we saw and did, but I’ll just give the highlights.

Day One: The Aces in Vegas Workshop with Bruce Patterson and Joe Simon at the Wynn Hotel.
This was really great. Who better to show you the ropes on shooting DSLR than two of the best in the world? These guys were very cool to talk to, ask questions and listen to what works for them. They were very open and honest with everything and were more than willing to help. Very down to earth guys which made for a relaxed and informative workshop. Not only were we able to chat with them in a smaller group setting, but we could play with their vast array of “toys and tools.” I’m sure this will become an annual event for these two so if you are shooting weddings or even photographer’s looking to incorporate Fusion, then we highly suggest going next year.

Day Two: After a night of walking in and out of hotels and sightseeing, we were up early and heading to WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) at the MGM Grand. Walking into this trade show was a bit overwhelming. So many amazing vendors and more well-known photographers and videographers than your mind could handle! After checking out some of the show, we headed up for lunch where a huge number of videographers and filmmakers had planned to have lunch all together. Here we met people we have been following for years and also brand new faces! Such a cool experience!

Day Three: We spent most of the day at WPPI the day before but it wasn’t enough. We hit it up one more day. That day we added new toys to our arsenal and met more amazing vendors that will have a large effect on the future of our business.

So those really are just the highlights. I knew attending the workshop and WPPI would be beneficial for us but I didn’t know to what scale. I now know that we will make this an annual event for Limelight Studios to attend. If you’ve never been and have always wanted to, next year should be it. They have already released the dates for WPPI next year – February 16th – 24th, 2011.

Check out some of the pictures from the week:

Thanks to Memory Journalists for the workshop group shot.
Thanks to Lensbaby for the portrait shot.
Thanks again to Bruce and Joe for being rad dudes.

Maui 2010 Photos

I wanted to share some of my favourite pictures from our recent trip to Maui. We are fortunate to see some beautiful sunsets here in the Okanagan, but Maui was something else. I in no way claim to be a “photographer”, but now since we’re filming our weddings with “photo” cameras (Canon 7D’s), I thought this trip would be an excellent opportunity to take some pics and just have fun with it. I could have posted a few hundred but narrowed it down to these ones. I can’t wait to go back!

I did take some video at the luau as well so I might get some time in the future to piece something together and share. Until then, here’s the pics:

Glidecam Action

We received some pictures from Amanda + Stacy’s wedding – August 14th, 2009. Photos were taken by Glen Durrell Photography.

Here’s one I found in the mix, showcasing some glidecam action. I love my glidecam.
