Thank You To All The Wedding Vendors – Video Crew – Models – And Assistants

Recently we had the opportunity to work with Skyless Productions on our first promo video. It was so much fun! Skyless productions team was really great to work with. We would love to get them on our preferred vendors’ list but they specialized in commercial and short films. You can check their reels out here:

Thanks to Gabriel from Sage Hill Ranch in Malibu for allowing us to take over her property and run amuck. When one thinks of Malibu you wouldn’t actually think of a ranch and a vineyard but yes Sage Hill Ranch is also a vineyard tucked away in the mountains of Malibu with ocean views. The property is available for commercial shoots, weddings, showers & parties and short-term vacation rentals. It is a great place for a small wedding. Please feel free to inquire about the property. Gabriel is really sweet and you will glad you met her and discover her property. Her website is

To my most favorite MUA. Thank you infinitely for your creative zest and for being so patient and enthusiastic about our photo projects. If you have never had the Cindy De Anda touch then you don’t know what you are missing. She has great eyes for beauty and she absolutely loves doing hair and makeup. She traveled all the way from San Francisco to do the makeup and hair for our models on set in Malibu. Cindy thank you so, so very much, we love and appreciate all that you have done for us.

One of the challenges we face as photographers are finding reliable and beautiful models to work with on a shoestring budget. As a photographer, I am always testing and working on projects to keep my skills sharp as well as gain new skills. Without the beautiful and handsome models that were provided to us by Rage Modeling Agency, this entire project would have been a bust. So big, big thanks to the Rage Team for putting together a group of beautiful and handsome models for us to pick from. Lena, you are super gorgeous and easy to work with. Steven, I love your confidence man, and you wear a suit so damn well. We have to do this again.

To my favorite florist Cindy Sheridan, you are one of a kind, a goddess of beauty, you make all things beautiful with your gentle touch. Thank you so much for been there for us over and over again. Whenever I am photographing a wedding and I look at the bouquets and the boutonnieres I always think to myself, “they don’t have the Cindy’s touch”. Thank you, thank you and more thank you. Readers please go and check out some of Cindy’s work at

Every event should have a planner like Dianna Brister. We first work with Dianna at a wedding at the Fess Parker in Santa Barbara and she was phenomenal. Diana was actively involved in ensuring that everything was going according to plan. Thank you so much, Diana. If you are planning an event, trust us, you want Dianna on your team.

To Stephen Clampitt, our second photographer, you rock man. We are so lucky to have you on board. We appreciate everything you have done for us and we love working with you.

To my side kick Kassy Contreras, thank you so much for being my assistant on set. You are very passionate about photography and you are a quick learner. We enjoyed working with you and we hope we will get some more opportunity to work with you.

Finally, to my dearest wife, the woman who can juggle infinite things and still keeps a smile on her face. I love and appreciate you for your patience, your love and understanding, and for giving me wings to fly. Without you, none of this would have been possible. Thank you so much for been a part of my life and for always been a shining light for me. I love you!
