The big day for Katie + Enzo!

Carrie Hoffman

My dear friends Katie and Enzo's big day finally happened!  I was thrilled to film a wedding with many of my close friends in attendance, and also super excited for the food!  Katie is a vegan chef so she meticulously designed the menu for the outstanding 5-course dinner reception.  As a vegan I'm used to eating salad and bread at weddings, so this was a refreshing change!  Here's their wedding highlights video premiere!


Katie + Enzo: Love Story Documentary

"We just fit, we just flow together," Katie explained during this Love Story shoot.  I couldn't agree more!  These two are PERFECT for each other and I'm so excited for their wedding THIS WEEKEND!  Until then, enjoy my first official Love Story Documentary!  

If you'd love this kind of film to show at your rehearsal dinner or reception, drop me a line!

Advertising with Offbeat Bride!

Carrie Hoffman

Building a small business is HARD, people.  When I started in this industry I was pretty naive.  I had no solid plans of becoming full time so I didn't really do a ton of research into what wedding filmmakers actually do to make it work.  I'll admit it, I pretty much haphazardly learned as I grew.

My first wedding

A couple years ago, I decided to make the jump into advertising.  For wedding vendors, there are a plethora of endless advertising options out there!  Luckily I was just coming down from the high of my own wedding, so I turned to the "old reliable" wedding planning blogs I used to help me with my own shindig, A Practical Wedding and Offbeat Bride.

Thanks to my first sponsored post on A Practical Wedding a couple years ago I've booked some amazing weddings with cool, smart couples and even gotten to travel to Monterey and Sacramento!

My featured vendor listing on Offbeat Bride is a new investment, but I've already booked a couple San Diego weddings with awesome couples for this summer.  I love Offbeat Bride because they feature real, authentic couples who are really thinking about what marriages and weddings mean to them, rather than blindly following tradition and some *other* wedding blogs' advice.

If you're a vendor looking for advertising or an engaged couple looking for vendors, I highly recommend Offbeat Bride!

Welcome summer!

It's summer, finally!  San Diego's "June gloom" has lifted and the sun is blazing!  The time has come for sunbathing, surfing without wetsuits, and bonfires!  I love it.  To get you in the mood, here's a sweet beach wedding I shot in Corona del Mar last summer.  I just love seeing the waves crashing in the background as Gume and Jeremy get married!


Chase's Navy Homecoming

Carrie Hoffman

This was my first military homecoming event and filming it was such a privilege!  I had no idea how these events worked but thankfully it turned out to be pretty epic!  Chase was on deployment for 10 months in the Middle East.  His wife Amanda and family were so excited to welcome him home!


Sneak Peek: Katie+Enzo's Love Story

Katie & Enzo are good friends of mine and I'm so excited to film their wedding this fall!  Today we got together in Balboa Park to film some interviews for their Love Story Documentary!  They'll be showing this during their rehearsal dinner to help all of each other's relatives and friends from far away get to know them!

I rented a 5d Mark III and 50mm 1.2 for this shoot and the footage looks AMAZING!  Check out these freeze frames!
