Couple: Bre & Branden
Ceremony Location: Haleakala, Maui
“We absolutely are obsessed with ‘The Dark Knight’. You think you can create something in that vein, Stephan?” asked the groom on our discovery call.
If there is one thing I have grown to love it’s keeping creative fresh and not patterned. I had no idea how we might pull that request off, especially of a Haleakala elopement. But 10,000 ft elevation was already a much better start than the tropical ocean paradise below.
We had an other-worldly , downright spiritual-feeling shoot at 10,000 feet above the clouds. Then in the edit and grade we made creative decisions to make this elopement quite a bit different from most.
Love it, or hate it, it’s exactly what the couple wanted. Here’s what they wrote us upon having viewed their Haleakala elopement film:
“Stephan we are loss for words. You truly are a master of your craft. This is truly perfect. A video that will be as timeless as the dark knight that gets better and better every time we watch it. […] this video is absolute perfection. Thank you so much for giving us this once in a lifetime gift that we will cherish for our lifetime and that will be passed on for legacies to come. Thank you”
I’m sure it’s a polarizing kind of wedding film. What do you think?
Love it? Or hate it?
