Hilton + Danny
Joshua Tree National Park
Hilton and Danny have a strong connection with Joshua Tree. In the film, you can see a polaroid of them from a prior visit stuck in the frame of a poster in room 8 of the Joshua Tree Inn where Danny got ready. The legend of Gram Parsons drew the music-loving couple to Joshua Tree, and as Cap Rock in the national park plays a big part in the Parsons story, that’s where they decided to get hitched.
Based in Atlanta, GA with their family spread around the south and midwest, it was a journey for all of their loved ones and friends who came out to celebrate with them. Hilton’s dad sums it up well in the first few moments of the film! The reception was held at the Joshua Tree Saloon — another local institution — which has a great private space out back for smaller weddings.
We shot a roll of Super 8 film for Hilton and Danny as the fun retro vibe really fit them and their connection to the history and legends of the area. This cut in with the video footage we shot for one of our first hybrid film/videos.
“Jim & Melissa make an INCREDIBLE team because they have both the skills and the creativity to create a true piece of art! They shot our wedding and delivered the absolute best film that we could have dreamed of having. My husband and I were looking for videographers that would make a unique film and what we got was exactly what we had hoped for and even more! They captured every moment so beautifully and professionally. I would absolutely recommend choosing them specially if you have a good eye for art and originality!
They were available and reliable throughout the process which is very important while planning a wedding. They communicated with our planners and even photographer so well, as though they had worked together on a million other projects; that was very impressive to me, it definitely ensured that the day was captured so perfectly and smoothly.
I can not thank them enough for the incredible job that they have done. We are still reliving our wedding and every beautiful detail of it because of their film, it has literally been on repeat amongst ourselves, our families and friends since we received it!”
