We could not resist making a teaser film with these two. Dina and Kent met at work. They casually went out for drinks one night. Drinks turned into a date, a date turned into love. Their wedding was fun, heartfelt and a blast to be a part of. We are honored that they picked us to capture the day. Grab your tissues and be inspired by this couple.

Testimonial ~ from Taryn
Your wedding album shots are seriously incredible! Kudos to your photographer, although he had an easy target in his/her lens … which likely offset the challenges of putting the spectacled-one in good light. :) You are also receiving lots of other compliments (from my dad too who used to be a photographer) Not that I’m surprised….but amazing job! I cannot wait to refer you to everyone! Thanks again and looking forward to the rest!
Sam + Jason = Jam.
Samantha is the marketing director and chief event planner for CS magazine and Jason is the the market lead
for Guilt City. Together they are Jam. We were honored to be chosen to film this cape cod inspired wedding.
We also shot this for Graham to send to Samantha as a surprise post wedding. We LOVE this and recommend multiple views.
note: (thumbnail image for Jam video was shot by Caleb Condit- who was the photographer on this wedding. Caleb is one of our vendor friends and does not shoot with fig weddings. He lent us this photo to use as our video thumbnail. Like the image? Click here to visit his site.)
Rita + Jason
We only have one word to describe this wedding: Epic.
Rita and Jason not only planned a green wedding using local vendors and artists, they planned one of the most unique weddings our team has seen. From alligators to a Mardi Gras style band, this wedding was moving, inspiring and so much fun. Rita and Jason are proof that when you include your community in your wedding, great things can happen…. and they did. You have to see this wedding.
This couple booked our MOD deal was featured on Be U Brides. (See the feature here. ) and we used them in our films AD in CS Brides.

Client Testimonial ~ From Rita
The video is an AMAZING, BEAUTIFUL WORK OF ART. Kudos to you and Phillipp. I am so *happy* we used Fig for all our media services. I really love the way you edited the music and images together, the splicing is fantastic.Thank you so much for all your hard work. I can see that you put much effort and art into our video and I really appreciate it. I can honestly say that these videos (especially the trailer) will be watched over and over, by many people for years to come (I mean really, though, our great, great, great grandkids will probably see it, how cool is that?!) and I just want to make sure that all the most important moments for us are in it, however briefly. And randomly, is there some type of wedding video award I can nominate you guys for? Because I think you could win. Our video and my friend Allison’s (of Allison and Ben Lewis) are the best wedding videos I have EVER seen. The hardest part of not having internet the last week was not being able to watch this video over and over.
