Have you worked with my coordinator or videographer before?

By, July 13, 2017

Most likely we have worked together, especially if your coordinator and/or videographer has a well-established reputation within the community. The advantage of being around for 17 years is we have worked with so many excellent vendors! Regardless of whether we have worked together, we work well with everyone. So no matter what, you will be just fine ;) We know how most of the pros work, and they know how we work at this point. We’re able to rely on each other’s experience to make sure the day is stress free for our wedding couple. We also communicate with the coordinator or videographer before the wedding to ensure the process is smooth. There’s definitely less to figure out as the years have gone by!  

For example, Christine of Lavish Weddings is one of the coordinators we work with frequently, having done 28 weddings together to date. She shared her take on working with our company: “I love working with photographers from True because I know they get there early and they’re prepared. They communicate with me ahead of time so we’re always on the same page, and they’re very reliable.  I don’t always have that same experience with new photographers.”

Our goal for our wedding couple is to document the day with amazing photographs. By having great relationships with coordinators like Lavish Weddings, and knowing their approach, it enables us to stay ahead throughout the day. And when working with a videographer outside our studio, sharing the same objective helps us to work together, so you end up with the best of both worlds. Check out some highlights made possible by wonderful vendors we work with, and even some of them in action.

A Sophisticated Seaside Wedding at L’Auberge with Campbellicious Video

By, July 16, 2012

Our approach to videography is from a storyteller’s perspective. Whether the occasion is a wedding, quicenera, or music video, we will tell the best story possible through the magic of video.

We recently worked with a super fun couple, Heidi and Levi. We would describe their wedding as “seaside sophisticated” because it overlooked the Pacific Ocean from the beautiful L’Auberge Del Mar Resort.

For their wedding, our approach was to portray a “relaxed elegance.” We paired the footage with music by Etta James, and blended a very subtle mix of vintage effects to offset the modern coastal feel.  Take a look at the “Director’s Cut” we made for Heidi and Levy!

While capturing video footage, we had plenty of creative inspiration to highlight and showcase the beautiful beach side setting.

Our goal at Campbellicious Video is to provide you with memories that you can re-watch and re-live for a lifetime. Therefore, we approach weddings with a keen eye on “moments.” For example, when you laugh while posing for a photo, or you kiss spontaneously during a break in the action. In addition to the must-have shots, we like to include small details throughout the day that we know you’ll enjoy reliving.

While Campbellicious video was capturing this moment, we are able to see the artistic and spontaneous eye of True Photography when a gust of wind from the coast swept the veil up for this perfect shot. This moment was also captured beautifully in their video and is one of my absolute favorites.

Really, we just make super cool videos. We make the whole process very simple. Ultimately, we strive to make all of our services both awesome AND affordable… or “awesordable.” Ok that’s sounds weird, but it makes perfect sense to us!

Our most popular package is the “OMG Wedding Package.” In this package, we have two cameramen dedicated to capturing all the moments of a couple’s wedding. The eight hours of coverage encompasses the time from preparation to reception, and all the beautiful candid moments in between. Final delivery includes DVDs and electronic files delivered in beautifully crafted custom packaging, and bonus features such as a Wedding Music Video, Extended Video, and Raw Footage.
