We LOVE the film! We laughed, we cried then called our parents! Thank u so much!!!
This really touching love story between Abby and Andy premiered at their wedding on 6.22.13 at the gorgeous Chicago Cultural Center.
Also, check out the behind the scenes photos from our shoot with Abby + Andy
If we could bottle the excitement, tears and laughter that happen when we screen a love story, we’d have lightning!
BEHIND THE SCENES IMAGES….
Steve and Samira are not musicians and have no performance background. When they asked us to create a love story, we approached them with the ‘idea’ of a music video. After a few conversations, they decided to go for it. We chose music and then re-mixed and re-sampled it to suit their personalities and their story. For Steve + Samira, learning the music was challenging. On top of that, having us direct them to ‘perform’ took some time, willingness and courage.
It was so rewarding to see them really get into their roles. We couldn’t be more proud of them both! They embraced the challenge and really put their hearts into it. What a great way to start their marriage by accomplishing something new and frightening TOGETHER. We Heart you both for having faith in Loudbyte, taking the journey with us and having a real genuine experience.
Special Thanks to

By the time you have finished reading this review of Loudbyte Cinematography, you will have waited too long to try to book them (they book fast so *try* is a key word here)! We were absolutely blown away by Loudbyte. I seriously feel like our wedding film should be submitted to Sundance. It’s that good.
The artistry of the film is incredible: each shot is so stunning and there are shots that are literally breathtaking. The editing is *seamless*: they captured and distilled the day down to its most beautiful, poignant essence. The music selections are simply perfect – a combination of songs we chose, their expert selections and *perfect quality* recordings of our band, toasts, and ceremony officiants—all seamlessly blended together and elegantly overlaid on footage of the day. This is the best long-term investment you can make in your wedding – you will treasure this forever and Loudbyte will capture your memories at their finest, most stunning, moving, sensational form.
Steve and Ton Essa are a pleasure to work with. They are an excellent team and true artists. Trust their judgment! We heeded all of their advice in terms of microphones/sound, number of cameras, filming hours, “private shoot”, et al and could not be happier with the final product.
