Who’s ready for fall??? You already know we are! Fall is our favorite time of year and this film has all the fall vibes that we have been missing all year long! Tyler + Alyssia are some of the kindest most caring people we have ever met in our lives and we are so thankful to have met them and been able to tell their beautiful story! They are such a joy to be around and we enjoyed hanging with them at Cloudland Canyon and getting to see this breathe-taking waterfall! This waterfall elopement just goes to show you that even when COVID is canceling weddings left and right, you can always elope now and celebrate later! That was our plan. We want to still have an elopement style vow renewal in Washington state next September and then have a big reception celebration under a tent afterward back home!
Now lets talk about our big re-brand and what it means for you guys! We first started our wedding film business and photography under the name of Andrew + Emi Films. For years we have used this name and it has been amazing but we’ve always wanted something that is more meaningful and more branded toward destination weddings and elopements. Its always been our dream to travel the world and visit the most beautiful places on earth so we thought, why not make beautiful films while doing so! Places like Washington state (and most of the pacific northwest), the beautiful deserts of Arizona, California (and Yosemite), Utah, Hawaii, and Colorado. These places are all on our bucket list of elopements to shoot or destination weddings to film.
Our dream for the longest time was to elope in the North Cascades in Washington during the fall of 2021. We decided that we should go ahead and get married this September so that we could do a 1 year vow renewal in Washington next September! It was something that we just felt like we couldn’t wait for and we feel that we most definitely did the right thing and we couldn’t be happier.
Our reason for wanting to elope vs have a traditional wedding spawns from the origin of our story and from having seen so many traditional weddings in our past with brides who were stressed to the point they didn’t even get to enjoy their own wedding day. We see some weddings where the bride and groom (sometimes the momzilla) are trying so hard to impress everyone else and please everyone else that they forget what the day is even really about! We think wedding whether traditional or not should be ALL ABOUT THE COUPLE!!! Why should it have to be any other way?
So, this is why we are making this big push to see more and more fun, adventurous, spontaneous, nature filled, intimate weddings and elopements filled with joy, love, happiness, peace, and ALL THE GOOD FEELINGS that come with celebrating a newly married couple THE RIGHT WAY!! We want more couples are value experiences over things. Who would rather hike a mountain and proclaim their covenant with each other over saying traditional vows in front of all their family and friends. Who want to write those hand written vows that will make each other cry til’ you can’t cry anymore!
So, what does this mean for you guys?? It means more fun, adventure, deep meaningful films and photos that tell our couples stories they way they were meant to be told. From coast to coast we want to capture the most amazing couples and their beautiful love for one another. For our followers this means you get to experience breath-taking views, epic dance parties, and stories that will leave you sobbing and wanting more every time. We are so blessed to have made it this far in our business and we truly want to thank each and every person that has supported us and inspired us! Thank you Alisabeth Designs for creating this beautiful new website for us and to Thistlewood Photo and A.Lewis Films for being amazing mentors!
