jennifer mae & chris - Buerge Chapel at Aldersgate Retreat & Cultural Center in Pacific Palisades - My company featured on CNN/ABC!

Okay, this has to be one of the most unique weddings ever. You see, Jennifer & Chris are actually videographers who own and run their very own company in LA. Why would I be posting about them? Well, I actually had the privilege of shooting their wedding last week. But that is not what makes it so unique. What makes it so different is that whole wedding was done by bartering. The couple used their connections in the industry to trade with other vendors for their services. At first I was a little skeptical, after all, I had never even met this couple and they were getting married in a couple weeks. However, after talking with Jennifer Mae several times on the phone, I started to feel at ease with everything. And of course knowing that Ric Romero of Channel 7 ABC News was going to be doing a segment on this wedding didn't hurt! As soon as I hear anything about when the story on ABC is going to run, I will post about it. also did a story on it and I was mentioned in it so in the mean time, you can see it HERE.

Got the pleasure of working alongside Mars and Nancy from LA based Flowers on Mars who took care of the flowers. They are an incredible event design company capable of taking care of a multiple amount of event needs. Check them out!

Chris Erickson and the rest of the staff at Buerge Chapel at Aldersgate Retreat & Cultural Center in Pacific Palisades were so incredibly accommodating to me and my crew. I really love that place and look forward to shooting there again!
