  • About us

    Jennifer Mae: "I am a graduate of UC Berkeley with a BA in Film and Media Studies. Photography and Video have been a passion of mine since I was only 11 years old. The thing that I love most about shooting weddings, is getting to know the couples! Quite often, we become friends in the process."

    Chris: "I am currently studying film and media at Cal. I have worked in the entertainment industry for as long as I can remember. The thing that I love most about shooting weddings, may sound pretty cliche, but it's true. I love capturing one of the happiest days in someone's life."

    Together we have an amazing 14 month old son Michael! He is the best gift that we have ever received!

  • Why do we shoot weddings?

    We love weddings! Everything about them! Each experience to us is fresh, new and exciting. We are definitely not the company that you hire if you are looking for someone to show up and hit record. Our passion is story telling and that is exactly what we do... Tell your story. We understand what it feels like to go through the process of a wedding :-) as we are a husband wife team and we have been there ourselves! One of the most important things in you coming together is that you are both individuals and we look for the unique qualities that make you fit perfectly as a couple! A wedding is much more than saying "I do". It is many days, months and in most cases many years in the making. We put as much love into capturing your day as you have put into creating it! We love working with couples who are as passionate about us capturing their wedding as we are :-) We would love to hear about your big day!

Megan Nicole – Promo for her new album Escape

We had so much fun creating this promo for Megan Nicole.

If you don’t know who she is, check her out on her youtube page.  She is a very talented artist who is incredibly dedicated to pushing the limits to create something unique and fun!

 

As a team, the group of us a Major Diamond came together to really push our own limits. We were incredibly proud of each and everyone on our team.

Each team member contributing a skill.

Christine, did an amazing job storyboarding our shot list for us, choreographing the fight scene and teaching it to Megan and Benedict.

Who, by the way,  were both “ROCK STARS ” during the whole shoot. They both gave it their all and were completely dedicated no matter how late the shoot and I think it shows.

We all participated in cinematography throughout the process, but the real look of the video came from Chris who was assisted by Julian in creating amazing lighting and camera movement.

Jennifer Mae Directed the promo and really worked hard organizing and making sure everything happened.

Shannon Stellmacher created such a beautiful look to Megan with her make-up artistry. We just love working with her… side note: She is an amazing photographer.

Julianne Chai of Prettyologie was a master with the “locks”:-)

Luke one of our fav’s showed up and took some great Behind the Scenes photos for Major Diamond … and also made his appearance in the video:-)No… He didn’t breakdance this time:-)

Our Behind the scenes crew who worked so hard with the talent and extras as well as making sure everything was running smoothly were:

Reaa Puri, Daisy Dai, Brett Tanonaka and Vianka Valdes-Rubio.. A special thank you to all of you!!!

There were 30 extras there who were key to creating the mood.  We thank each and everyone of you who showed up looking amazing, being professional and really generous with your time.

And to really make it all work for the party scene… Berkeley City Club was amazing! Their role was key, as they provided more than we had hoped for.  Not only were we able to use the space, but the staff was incredible.  They went above and beyond to make this happen. Especially Sandy, the club’s senior sales and event manager.  She arranged everything, worked with the chef and kitchen staff to add another level to the production, and stayed really late! We can’t thank you enough… It is such a great place!!!

Check it out… It is such a fun and creative way to announce an album… We had a blast in every area on the production of this.. We are so proud of everyone who worked on it and I thank everyone for their time, dedication and love throughout!

Much love

Jennifer Mae
