Happy Monday! I hope your weekend was wonderful (I ignored the Super Bowl in exchange for helping friends garden personally, and it was perfect.) To wake you up and get you ready for the week, check out this beautiful wedding video by Coastline Studios, who are based in Michigan:

Been awhile since we’ve done a featured video and this Monday seemed like the perfect time to do it! From 3rd Street Films in Michigan, check out this gorgeous wedding — the reception area is so ornate and beautiful, the bride’s details are stunning, and the entire film production is so high quality. Enjoy!

Something a little different! Today’s featured video isn’t a wedding video — we were contacted by Phillip of Blume Photography about a very important story: children fighting to survive in Guatemala’s violent, post-civil war slums.

Well, in that interview I mentioned our conviction that artists ought to use their gifts for good — to make a real difference in the world, to inject into it some of that beauty we celebrate through art. Over the last year, my wife and I embarked on a very unlikely journey that resulted in us (still photographers with no video experience whatsoever) filming/directing/and producing this feature documentary film: Lost Boys of Paradise.

People have responded to the film in a HUGELY gracious way, which we couldn’t have imagined. We’re suddenly seeing lives changed through people all over the country, who are latching on to this project and to a very special organization that’s providing family life and an education to kids who previously were bound by extreme poverty and gang culture.

It doesn’t fit the typical wedding theme; although it represents a pro-bono project that our studio and clients made possible. I wonder if the story may find a place on your blog, where it might inspire some readers to get their own hands dirty to help the helpless.

See the trailer for the film below:
