ashley + travis = love is in the air

Featured

We remember June 1, 2013 so well because it was the first day that Tucson broke 100 degrees.  We had gotten to know Ashley and Travis because of interviewing them for their love story. They are such a fun loving and adorable couple.  This video shares with you a glimpse of their personalities and how Ashley and Travis met and their LOVE STORY.

We were fortunate to get to know Ashley’s family several years back when we created a montage for her grandfather’s birthday celebration and were thrilled to film Ashley’s wedding day.

Weddings are meant to be personal and have the personality of the couple.  Ashley’s grandfather made the cross that was at the alter at the ceremony at Saguaro Buttes.  If you look closely at their wedding trailer you can get a glimpse of it.  Pretty spectacular!

A Beyond Video Wedding Couple ~ Meet Danielle and Joel

Danielle and Joel

Danielle and Joel

Timing is the best way to sum up how our newest wedding couple came to us.  Well… here’s the story.  We got a call from Danielle saying a photographer had referred Beyond Video to her.  She said her fiancé had changed his mind and now wanted a videographer.   She knew her wedding was only a few months away but she said she was looking for someone GOOD.  We immediately knew we were going to get along well after listening to her phone message.

After talking extensively to Danielle, we were able to put together a unique customized wedding package to meet their vision of their special day.   We’re so happy to share their photo and can’t wait to film their wedding..

To learn more about this very lovely couple check out their wedding blog.

Our newest Beyond Video couple!

Our newest Beyond Video couple!

This is a first for Beyond Video!  Bianca called saying she loved our venue and wanted to make an appointment to come out and see our site.  This seemed a bit odd to me since we’re a videography company and don’t provide sites for weddings.  We capture events!  We talked and I explained that we could film her wedding day for her so she would be able to watch it years from now.  What a great idea she thought. We set up an appointment so she and her fiancé Jeremy could meet with us.  We’re so excited to have Bianca & Jeremy added to our Beyond Video family of wedding couples.

CONGRATULATIONS!

The pouring of love from family and friends was contagious.  Even though we had only worked with Jacob Chinn (Jacob Chinn Photography) before, we felt like we had teamed up with the other wedding professionals.

All the staff at the JW Marriott at Star Pass created an oasis for the ceremony and reception to happen.  Andrew Wagner from Muse Entertainment provided the entertainment and fun games to keep the guests entertained. Gabriel Francisco played background music with his classical guitar during the ceremony and during cocktails.  The most touching and emotional part of the wedding was the ceremony performed by their dear friend Michael.  Their wedding trailer clip will give you a glimpse of that.

AERO Sprinkler Foam Test

Featured

AERO Automatic Sprinkler Company tested 6 foam generators which are used for fire suppression in a newly built airplane hanger.  The first day tested the water sprinkler.  The second day tested the foam sprinkler.  The foam needed to cover the entire surface up to 3 feet deep in 3 minutes.  The foam actually rose to about 6 feet which is about 2 feet lower than our camera position.

With our 2 cameras we were positioned on a lift that rose 6 feet in height. We were harnessed in for safety reasons.

The most exhilarating part was when the foam started to pile up.

Check it out for yourself from this short video clip of the testing.

“Our experience with Beyond Video was very enjoyable. Your company was professional and provided many useful ideas to complete the project on time. Aero Automatic Sprinkler Co. would like to thank you for all of your hard work and dedication.”
