Emetisse + Payum
The Parker, Palm Springs CA
Emetisse and Payum wanted a film that really focused on them as a couple and all the special details of the day. Emetisse wore a beautiful lace dress that she wanted to highlight in the film through close-ups and detail shots. This is exactly the kind of request we love and we were happy to oblige!
The ceremony included elements of a traditional Persian wedding and most of the ceremony was in Farsi. The couple sat behind a Sofreh table full of foods and flowers and the wedding took place as the sun was setting.
The wedding was held at The Parker, Palm Springs which is one of the many iconic venues in the Coachella Valley. The famous white wall and tall orange doors at the front of the hotel are a must for couples photos and video. There are so many beautiful spots in the hotel, both inside and out, it’s always a pleasure shooting there.
“If you're considering The Quail & The Dove then you should already know their videography skills are unparalleled (if not... pause and go watch some). What you might not know is Jim and Melissa are a Dream to work with. Since we were doing a destination wedding we had a few facetime conversations prior to the wedding which really made it feel like we already knew them when it was wedding day. Instead of just being another vendor, Jim and Melissa felt like an extension of our friends and, I mean this in the best way, they were largely invisible for most of the time. They were even unfazed by our excessively large and loud dog trying to eat the fluffy microphone on the camera all day. They captured all the special moments, big and small, and were so seamless in their approach that even with just 24 guests, they blended in. We also didn't want a lot of direction or "staging" and they were very cool about just letting us do our thing and capturing the moments organically. The post-wedding aspects were also very easy to work with, we went back and forth until we found songs that we loved and they were able to license, and they were able to turn the video around in about 2 months which is way quicker than we were hoping. From day one until video delivery day they were quick with responses, professional, honest, and open. If you're still reading this, the point is, you should book The Quail & The Dove without hesitation and you won't regret it.”
