So there’s been a slight change here at Amari Productions since the last time I blogged. I’m now a dad 🙂 Mariah and I welcomed our daughter, Mercy, into the world on December 1st. If you want to see just how freakin adorable she is, follow Amari Productions on Instagram!

Here’s a perfect snapshot of who Ali & David are: They’re from Chicago, and had a destination wedding at La Quinta Resort & Club out in Palm Springs. That’s no short journey. Usually, if you were to have a destination wedding, you might expect your family and some of your closest friends to make it out. Ali & David had over 200 guests trek across the country to support their marriage. Yah, they’re pretty great people. Congrats to Ali & David, and we love you!

PS. Also, congrats on calling the Cubs world series victory in your vows, Ali 🙂

Hi all! I’m writing to you one last time before our little girl comes! I wanted to sneak in one more blog post, because we are so stoked with how Mark & Shirley’s film turned out. This was our second time shooting at Saddlerock Ranch this year, and we loveeeee it. The views are stunning in every direction, and the light is fantastic. Of course, the setting is nothing compared to the bride and groom themselves!

Mark & Shirley had one of those first looks where we just had to include the live audio, because you can instantly hear the mix of anticipation and excitement as they see each other for the first time on their wedding day! I remember thinking right then, “Oh, this is gonna be a good film!” And, as you’ll see, they did not disappoint 🙂

Get ready! This is the first of 2 blog posts over the next couple days! First stop: Sunriver, Oregon. This was such a beautiful venue to film at, and we absolutely loved getting to take Christie & Jeff out to a meadow and letting them love on each other. Listen to their vows, they both knew on their first date that they were going to get married! Their first date! Congrats to these two, and stay tuned for more 🙂

We are so excited to bring you today’s film, because it completely bucks the trend. When we asked Annie & Nick what genres of music they enjoyed, they said “upbeat motown and blues.” Yes, please! We had a blast stretching out beyond our traditional genres to find this song, and we immediately fell in love with it. It was not only refreshing to work with, but also inspiring! As we listened through it, we had some crazy visions of what we could do with the edit. So, we hunkered down and started tinkering. How did it turn out? Well, watch for yourself!! Congrats to Annie & Nick, and enjoy!!!

As wedding videographers, we love that we get to join a couple on the greatest day of their lives, and create a film that forever memorializes their story.  It is so deeply satisfying and fulfilling to be a part of.  

When that couple is someone we’ve known for over a decade, those feelings are multiplied a hundred times over.

And so, here we are.  Jamie & Elias are two people filled to the brim with joy, love, and empathy. They are so caring towards others, and are amazing parents to their daughters Olivia & Isabella.  All together, they are the type of family that you are rooting for as soon as you meet them.  We are so excited to premiere their highlight film, and can’t wait to see what the future has in store for the Wolfer clan!!!

Hey There All!

Hope this finds you enjoying (almost) spring as much as I am! Everything seems fresh and new and nature is definitely playing that tune. There is an orange tree 10 feet away from our front door and for some reason it just seems more fragrant than I remember it last year. Our 2016 wedding season is shaping up to be a good one! I know we say this a lot, but we are so thankful to be doing what we do. We are constantly finding ourselves pushing deeper into our creativity to tell the story of people’s love. What could be better??

Sophia and Jair came to us with a lot of that same creative energy. We all put our heads together and came up with something we think is pretty awesome. The wedding itself was so genuine and romantic (just wait and see!) and really captured them as a couple. Congrats to the newly weds!! Enjoy!!

When members of the bridal party get together for a choreographed dance, everyone is in for a good time. Since the stipulation for inclusion is “are you in the bridal party?” and not “can you dance?”, there’s always a fair amount of self deprecation, improvised solos, and laughter. So, when we saw that the groomsmen had scheduled a dance for Mike & Ashley’s reception, we knew what to expect, and were excited to capture the fun.

But then, as I went to mic Mike (lol) before the ceremony, I stumbled upon them rehearsing. I was in total awe, and that is not hyperbole. So You Think You Can Dance? Yes. The answer is yes. They can.

Ok, no more spoilers! Congrats to Mike & Ashley, and the enjoy the film! Afterwards, you can watch the full dance on our Facebook.
