Maria rocks. She has an awesome smile. Maria wanted a short 30 second clip to play when people visited her website to show them how much fun it would be to have her at their wedding. Its easy to see that she loves what she does and she puts her heart into every image. The wedding was at the Manor House in Littleton, and that is an incredible venue.
We wanted to do something really special to show of the hard work, time, and precision it takes to set up a once in a lifetime event at the Four Seasons Hotel in Denver. A time lapse was our answer. It takes around nine hours from start to finish to go from an empty room to a dream venue. I had a blast because normally I only spend a half hour documenting the set up process to give a feel for a wedding day. Getting video of nine hours of set up I really understood what venues and vendors do to make this an incredible experience. Here are some of the amazing vendors involved. Venue - Four Seasons Hotel Denver
Planner - Table 6 Productions, Heather Allen
Lighting & Draping - LMD Productions, Rodd Metcalf

Quality. It is what I think of when I think of Mario. It is one of the reasons I love working with him. This was the promotional behind the scenes video for his 2013 high school seniors. We wanted to show the experience that you get when working with him. Everything from the makeup, to the choosing of concepts and outfits, to the actual shoot. We started in downtown before heading out to Littleton for some epic looks in an open field. I love doing these behind the scenes videos because it gives their clients the ability to know what it is like to work with you. It lets them know how much fun they will have and how great the experience will be. That in itself, is invaluable.
Jesse Weiner is a bicoastal photographer I met when visiting a friend in Boston. Not only was I inspired by the amazing work he did, but I was impressed with his professionalism, his way of working with clients, and his need to create beautiful images. He has been hired by Billy Bell to photograph dancers in his Lunge Dance Collective around the States. One of these locations was Denver. It was great to have him stay for a few days and watch him work with six incredible dancers in my studio. I put together a short promotional/behind the scenes for his website while he was down. Take a look!
Eli is a wedding photographer up in Boulder who does some amazing work. Eli wanted a behind the scenes video to give his future clients an idea of what it is like to shoot with him. We went with something upbeat and fun because thats exactly what it is like to shoot with him. Promotional videos like these are great to set yourself apart. Video is so intriguing and interactive, people love to just sit and watch what their experience is going to be like.
This is a short makeup commercial for independent makeup artist Yildiz. it was filmed during a beauty photoshoot in Phoenix, Arizona by Jen Kelley. The goal here was to create a thirty second spot for her to put her website to get clients excited about working with her. For more info about the artist you can see her work here,
The other half of my business is photography, and when you want the best for your clients, that includes print quality. ProDPI is a lab now based in Denver that does absolutely stunning work, from their beautiful cards, to their epic bamboo prints. They do a number of trade shows every year and needed a video to show off their production facility during their travels. This video takes you through what goes into the process from the time a customer clicks print to the time it is loaded onto the truck for shipping.
Mario Masitti is one of the most talented photographers I know. He has the ability to see light and work with a subject like few people I know. What really makes him unique is his ability to understand what the client wants, and deliver exactly that. We got together on this shoot because model Amy Lee needed to revamp her entire portfolio. The shoot took place over two days covering Niwot, downtown Denver, and everywhere in between. I love these behind the scenes photography videos because you get to see the process as well as the final product. You get to understand what working with the photographer is like. You get a feel for what working with the model is like. We had an incredible team putting this production together. Jessica from Salon Misha covered everything hair, Tiffany from Blush Artistry and Company did amazing makeup, and the shoot was styled by Justice at JTA.
