Hello! We are Jess + Joel. Hence the name jj films.
Our love grew across the country, as Joel is from California and Jess is from New York. We went on our first date in New York City and never looked back! Now we live in San Luis Obispo, on the central coast of California. It is the perfect location between the mountains and the ocean, and we are able to travel up and down the coast often. We are hardcore adventure seekers and we are very inspired by nature. Exploring the Earth and appreciating our home together is one of our favorite joys in life!
We are newlyweds ourselves so we know the euphoric bliss of being in love! and it is incredible!!! Having a strong love as a couple has deepened our appreciation for the work we do, and the importance of capturing all of the details and hard work that go into planning a wedding. We may be new to the married club, but we have been filming weddings for more than a decade! Every year we travel between California and Hawaii to make wedding films. And it brings us so much happiness to be part of so many love stories from all over the world. We love what we do.
We are in love with love and all of the enthralling fascinations it entails. There is no force stronger or any feeling more powerful than love. It is unmatched and it is magnificent! As artists and storytellers our passion is to tell love stories through motion picture. We focus on making each wedding film unique and tailored to each particular couple. We work hard to combine our vision with yours - to create one-of-a-kind wedding films. We love making our brides and grooms feel at ease and comfortable in front of the camera. Building relationships and communicating is key to us! So drop us an email and tell us about yourself! We would love to meet you and learn your story.
