Justin&Alyssa

our belief that “adventure is out there” means that anytime we have the chance to try something new, we jump at it, even if we don’t really know what we are doing yet. We will be the first and loudest to admit that we are photographers, photographers, photographers. we are not videographers/cinematographers/filmmakers, or whatever you want to call it. But after playing around with making short films for our personal fun, we were asked by justin and alyssa to make one for their wedding. we were also their wedding photographers (photos and more of their wonderful, magical story will post someday in the future), so we told them yes, as long as they understood all of the biggest moments of the day would be prioritized and captured in still photographs. the film would just be the “icing on the cake” to help them remember the nuances of their experience.

so, in true parsons fashion (our boys are a testament to this) we are going to devour the sweet, messy, beautiful icing before the cake.

here it is, the first wedding short film we have ever made: rough, unedited, and from wild, happy hearts who believe adventure is out there!
thank you, alyssa and justin, for the blast of trying something new! we can’t wait to share your wedding photographs with you!

like the song they danced to and that we used for the video, “this love won’t break your heart”?

it’s by the lovely annalise emerick, co-written with John flanagan.
