Ricky and Sonal + Terranea Resort + Helicopter = INCREDIBLE!!!

INCREDIBLE!! That's really the only way to explain this top notch Indian Wedding that took place at the beautiful Terranea Resort in Palos Verdes California!

Ricky and Sonal + Terranea Resort + Helicopter = INCREDIBLE! from Impressive Creations on Vimeo.

Ricky and Sonal are a super fun, outgoing couple. Ricky, the man with a vision (and his lovely mom), came to our studio just over a month ago with his list of great ideas for his cliffside wedding. Well, I don't think any of us realized how big this day was really going to be! The weeks leading up to their wedding was packed with traditional ceremonies and family festivities. It was really great getting to know Ricky and Sonal and to learn a bit of their relationship and the love they share for their family and friends.

The Monday before the big day I was thinking about Ricky, Sonal and the upcoming wedding at the Terranea Resort and it was then that two words popped into my head. "Helicopter Shots!!" At first I thought to myself, nah, no way, but then I thought, hey, why not! Helicopter shots of Terranea and the beautiful Pacific Ocean would most certainly be an Impressive Creation! Plus, Ricky had expressed to me his love for the ocean so I thought this would be an amazing way to complement his passions and his vision for his wedding. The thought of breathtaking panoramic shots of their cliffside ceremony began to overwhelm me and at first I was going to tell Ricky about my idea, but I thought I would save it for a surprise to be shown in their Same Day Edit during their reception. Well, all that to say, when that first helicopter shot popped on the screen, all of their guests exploded in a great roar of clapping and screaming! It was an amazing moment for Ricky and Sonal and for me personally!

This wedding was no small feat! I had the privilege to work along side of Amy Patel of Planning Elegance who was an absolute joy to work with (and very calm by the way). Amy and I got to sit together during the showing of the Same Day Edit and trust me, we were high five 'n' all the way through!! You rock Amy!!! Great job!!! Whewww... I don't know how you did it!! Jennifer Hyman, Leslie McCammon and Tracey Koven from Terranea Resort were extremely helpful and very accommodating throughout the entire planning process and the day of the wedding. I got a little nervous when the jib was a little bigger and badder then we all anticipated but the staff was great! Thanks Leslie!!

All the stages, linens, florals, floor plans and event design were coordinated by the amazing Shawna Yamamoto. DUDE!! You rock Shawna! All day, we got to shoot along side of Michelle From Jim Kennedy Photography. I'm sure she got some smoken shots!! You can see some of Ricky and Sonal's Engagement shots on Michelle's blog. I'm sure you will see their wedding photos soon!!! The incredible lighting and set decor was done by Amber Yin at Amber Event Design.

In closing, I have to say a huge thanks to the amazing team of Cinematographers and editors that made this whole Same Day Edit happen!!! YOU GUYS ROCK!! Definitely could not have done this without you!!

What you see here in this film just scratches the surface of all the incredible things that took place on August 1st. We will be posting new clips and a trailer of this spectacular wedding in the weeks to come.

Thanks for watching and we hope you enjoy!!

Same Day Edit ~ Mark and Diana ~ Anaheim

Fun fun fun! That's the best way for me to describe Mark and Diana. This VERY outgoing couple had a beautiful wedding at the St. Denis Catholic Church in Diamond Bar. Then, it was off to the Embassy Suites for some serious dancing. Diana decided to do a wardrobe change before the Reception so she would be ready to rock for their first dance as husband and wife. The groovy couple danced their way into the reception with their own choreographed piece that had everyone on their feet.

We also had the pleasure to work along side of Connie and Jeff from Chou Photography. They were great!

Here is just a taste of their day in the Same Day Edit!!

Hope you Enjoy, and Congrats Mark and Diana

Raymond + Angela starring in "Puppy Love"

What a fun couple!! This is Ray and Angela's "Short Version" of their love story that we created just weeks before their big wedding at the Pacific Palm Hotel & Resort in the City of Industry! We showed this in front of hundreds of their guests and there was not a dry eye in the house.

Jeff + Jennifer ~ "La Venta Love"

I often think how crazy it is that whenever we choose a date for an event months or even years in advance, we never know the kind of weather we are going to get. It could be freezing cold, dumping rain, or blazing hot. You just never know. Rain was actually in the forecast for Jeff and Jennifer's wedding day, but the clouds parted and Jeff and Jennifer were left with deep blue skies at a perfect venue with a perfect backdrop which made for some stunning scenes!! What a great couple and they sure do like to kiss! Congrats Jennifer and Jeff!! Don't forget to click the little "full screen" icon below to watch this in High Definition.


Wedding Teaser ~ "La Venta Love" from Impressive Creations on Vimeo.


Once again we had a great time working with the staff at La Venta in Palos Verdes. We also got to shoot along side with John and Max Mill Photography. John and Max looked very familiar to me and we finally figured out that we shot a wedding together like 4 years ago. Crazy!! Also, we got to enjoy the incredible live music of Kenyatta and the Baby Dolls. ROCKING!!! I am still so amazed that people don't budget for a wedding video. Even it's a cheap-o, cheesy video, hey at least it's captured.

Hope you all Enjoy,

Same Day Edit "A Blue Bird"

Our First Same Day Edit of 2009 couldn't have gone any better. Rancho Palos Verdes was the setting for Troy and Monica's wedding. It was a beautiful "Blue Bird" day. (That's Troy's definition of a sunny day with beautiful deep blue skies). It was actually forecast to rain last Saturday, but God parted the skies for this wonderful couple!! These guys are sooo in love.. You can check out their "Love story here". 

Their Ceremony was at the beautiful Neighborhood Church in Palos Verdes, California. We also had the privilege to shoot for our first time with Jose Zakany photography. We had a great time working together. Troy and Monica's reception was up on the hill at the Norris Pavilion. I have never seen this place look so nice. This website does it no justice at all!

Congrats Troy and Monica. I hope you guys are having an awesome honeymoon. Thanks for letting us be part of your Amazing Day!!!

Tristan Alexander


Tristan Alexander from Impressive Creations on Vimeo.

What a beautiful baby boy!! We were so privileged to have had the opportunity to capture the birth of Tristan Alexander Sword on film. Mom and dad were so gracious to let us share the intimate space of a delivery room with them. What an amazing experience it was for Impressive Creations to be there to capture these precious moments on film. Incredible!!

Being that this video was shot a few months ago, it's quite ironic that this video opens up with Tristan's big sister was singing "Jingle Bells". Perfect for the Christmas season!!!




Congratulations Tod and Kristina, you are truly blessed.

Merry Christmas and a huge Happy New Year to you all,

Impressive Creations

Destination Nicaragua ~ Frank and Scarleth Intro


Here is a little intro piece from a Destination Wedding my beautiful wife (and assistant) and I got to film in Nicaragua. What a beautiful place it is! It was really quite an adventure. After our long plane ride, we had a 3 1/2 hour drive (mostly on dirt roads) just to get to the Resort Location called Piedras Y Olas. It overlooked the most awesome emerald blue Bay. I actually got some really fun surfing in on this trip too. The water was 80 degrees!! Nice.. We had a great time hanging out and getting to know Frank and Scarleth, enjoying their spectacular wedding and having pool side Pina Coloada's!! Photos and a video snippet is below. We got to shoot this exotic wedding with their good friend and photographer, Marcos Serpas.

You can see their Love story in our Love Story section on our Web Site.

Another beautiful wedding.. 
We had the opportunity to film this wedding at The Regis Beach Resort in Laguna Niguel. We shot along side Orange County wedding photographer Bob Ortiz. Him and his assistant were super cool and they were very helpful throughout the day. Thanks guys. Then it was off to their reception at Seven Degrees in Laguna Beach. Got to work with Alyssa. She was great! What a cool artsy place. They even had like 50 little tiny TV that was showing our Same Day Edit all over the place. Very cool.. 

Hope you all enjoy the video and Happy Thanksgiving..

Adam and Kim.. The Kissing Couple. The Monday Wedding.

WOW!! These guys just couldn't stop kissing!! These guys are so cool. They had their wedding on a Monday in memory of Kims father who passed away exactly one year ago on that Monday. We then had the opportunity to film their reception the following Saturday in Santa Barbara.

I am so excited about this video. I used to love Metallica and this song I found was perfect for their wedding trailer. Got to film this wedding with our Friend Mimi the photographer.

This is a worry free shoot. No Photographers, No Stress, No guests, No mess. It's just you, the Camera and me. Jessica sure did enjoy it and I hope you do too!!

Enjoy,
