Raleigh and Will wanted to do things a little different for their wedding. Having the reception the night before and the temple sealing the next day we were ready for two big days of filming. I was told that the bridal party would be going into the pool at the end of the reception. Being a little to preoccupied on what needed to be filmed that day I forgot to grab a towel and swimsuit so I went in clothes and all to capture a few clips of them jumping into the pool. (check out the credit at the end to see what we got)

When Loni’s sister Shawnee told us what Mark had planned, we knew we couldn’t miss it. We reserved our seats just a few rows behind where the proposal was going to take place. The theater was dark, the couple was waiting for the go ahead from Mark’s Brother. Shawnee makes the announcement that her sister is going to be proposed too after the movie so please stick around. The trailers start, the text is sent, in walks the couple but now one of their seats has been taken by some little kids. No worries they just take the two seats next to them. We all enjoy the movie and then the credit begin. With the camera assembled quickly and quietly we’re ready to begin, but Loni stands us to stretch and we hide the camera, turn and talk to our neighbor, and hope our cover hasn’t been blown. The coast is clear so we get setup again.
the credits finish and……….

push play to see what happens ;)

We had an amazing time with Tyler and Marlee as we traveled around Southern Utah for their Engagements/ Save the Date shoot. Jimmy Bishop from Gideon Photography did an amazing job on their photos.

Ashlee and Tim wanted something unique and different tell their story and what they feel for each other. With this in mind, I remembered the movie “The Notebook” and threw out the idea of having them exchange personalized letter the morning of their temple sealing. They loved the idea and hence their wedding film “Spring Blossoms” was born. It was such a beautiful day and a beautiful experience sharing in this young couples joy at being married and their families excitement for them. Thanks for allowing us to be a part of your special day Ashlee and Tim!

The winner of the “Love Is In The Air” Wedding giveaway will be announced on monday! Two Runners up will also be announced. Each will win an engagement session of both photo, and video, courtesy of Gideon Photography, and Castlebridge Films!



This past weekend we had the opportunity to film the wedding of Elizabeth and Joel in the Springdale Fruit Orchard (near Zion National Park). The setting was truly unique and Laura Stagg with Forevermore Events did an amazing job designing and coordinating the event. Robynn Wood with Marvellous Catering outdid herself – yet again – with the delicious food and Festival Sounds kept the party dancing into the night. A big thanks to Kellee for being so wonderful to work with and for making our job so much fun. Elizabeth and Joel are a delightful couple and we want to thank them again for allowing us to be a part of their special day!!!

Utah Wedding

We recently had the privilege of interviewing one of our past brides and her mother. Darci was married in June 2008 and she and her mother, Sherry, were kind enough to share with us some of their thoughts about Darci’s wedding, particularly the wedding film we made. During the interview Darci mentioned that her father-in-law passed away suddenly last October and that her wedding film now has additional value because we were able to capture him sharing his feelings about her and his son, Colby. We are so happy that we were able to capture these special feelings so that Darci and Colby can watch their wedding film and feel like her father-in–law is close by.

Sherry shared with us that she was extremely grateful for the wedding film we produced for Darci and Colby. She mentioned that wedding films are so important because they instantly become a priceless treasure that will be cherished for years to come, and suggested that couples do whatever it takes to get one. It means so much to us that these two wonderful women took time out of their busy schedules to speak with us and to know that our hard work (their wedding film) is something they treasure.

Thank you Darci and Sherry for your friendship. And thank you Laura Stagg for being so amazing to work with and so darn talented! To all our clients, past and future, we humbly thank you. We love what we do and couldn’t live our dream without you. Thank You!

Let us introduce Photo Love Stories a team of two talented and fun Southern Utah photographers.

When Amy and Natasha contacted us they were excited to team up with CastleBridge Films and create a promotional film for their website. We scheduled to meet and brainstorm ideas for the project. Amy and Natasha we not too excited to be in front of the camera but they were great sports and did a great job sharing why they love what they do and what makes their company unique. After tons of bloopers ;) we wrapped up day one.

Day two we went out to Bloomington Hills (just south of downtown St. George) and filmed a bridal shoot they were doing for Heather and Michael.

Day three we arrived at the Sunbrook reception center right before Heather and Michael arrived from their luncheon. We were again capturing Photo Love Stories in action as they documented the reception. Laura Stagg from Forevermore Events transformed the reception center into a vintage theme.

Some of the things we like about Photo Love Stories is that they have two photographers at every shoot, quick turn around, and have fun.

Shooting Locations:

Washington, Utah
St. George, Utah (Bloomington Hills area)
Sunbrook Reception Center
