Giveaway celebrating our 100th blog post!

26 Jul

Hello First Kiss followers! Today’s entry is a significant one as it marks our 100th blog post! We feel that’s something to celebrate so we’d like thank YOU for visiting each week and posting comments over the last few years. Your interest has and continues to inspire us to keep blogging each week.

Now to show our thanks, we have teamed up with fabulous Star Stylist Robyn of Stella & Dot and we will be giving away this gorgeous necklace! This pearly beauty is a personal favorite of mine which I first fell in love with after wearing it for just a few hours at a recent M Photography photoshoot.  I knew then I had to have it…and now you can too! This is such a versatile piece you could wear it with anything from a wedding dress to a tank top (a combo I personally love to rock). Check out more of the Stella & Dot collection here.

For your chance to win, all you have to do is leave a comment below. We will then randomly draw one name and announce the lucky winner here on Monday, August 1st – good luck! :)

Much love,

AMLD winners!

A winning couple

13 Jul

Do you remember the { First Kiss FilmsWin Your Wedding Film contest back in April? If you do, then you’ll remember this winning couple and their poetic entry. Tina & Bola celebrated their one-month newlywed anniversary last week and their wedding film is just about ready to be revealed!

To whet your appetite for their wedding film, which will be posted here next Tuesday, enjoy this tasty teaser image of Tina & Bola taken by Fleischer Photography. Isn’t this image absolutely incredible?

If you are getting married next year and you would love a chance to win your wedding film then stay tuned for 2011 contest details coming this January!

And the First Kiss Film goes to…

4 May

…okay, we’ll let you know in one minute, but first we’d like to extend a big THANK YOU to everyone who entered our contest. It was such a joy reading through so many incredible entries that shared sweet love stories, beautiful photographs and fun wedding details! It was very difficult to select just one couple but in the end we decided to go with the soon-to-be-wed couple who submitted the most creative entry.

So, we are very pleased to announce that the grand-prize winners of the “Win your wedding film” are…Katharina J. Guenther & Bola O. Sogbein! And their wedding is only four weeks away – June 5th, 2010, here in the Nation’s Capital.

Katharina & Bola also submitted a poem that was written during a time when they lived on separate continents. How romantic! Here’s part of their winning entry:

“Our relationship has taken us to the various corners of the globe, spawning incredible connections and experiences. Central to those experiences is the fact that we maintain who we are by being grounded in our love for one another. A look, a touch, a smile or a kiss is often all that’s needed to reaffirm our unyielding commitment. We would love { First Kiss Films } to capture this on our wedding day since it is often a kiss that seals our bond.

Why we would like our wedding to be captured by { First Kiss Films }
Nine – number  of  incredible years we’ve shared together in our relationship
Eight – the year Bola proposed to Tina
Seven – minus the day of our wedding = number of children we hope to have
Six –  number of countries we’ve visited together for work or play
Five – our day of bliss in June of 2010
Four – number of times Bola thought he had lost the engagement ring
Three – number of years we kept our relationship a secret from co-workers
Two – number of years we lived on separate continents (Australia and Canada)
One – number of times we have to kiss to feel as though it’s our first

Our Souls Unite
By: Bola Sogbein

It flows like a mid-summer night dream, your kiss, your taste
Sumptuous like the forbidden fruit I yearn for the moment when I
can escape as Dante and become the bliss I experience in my thoughts
That moment in time when your essence transcends all boundaries,
time, space become but a figment, a remnant, an afterthought, an ill-existence
and caresses my flesh as though you were near, beside, touching my soul
How I yearn for that moment when I can taste your essence
that moment when your soul lavishes me and fulfills my every erotic and sensual desire
yet I stare alone at the stars
wondering which one your light shines under
until we feel each other again, and our souls unite

Congratulations Katharina and Bola, for your winning entry and more importantly for finding great love in one other.

Third wedding film package now available: the Indie!

2 Mar

I’ve had many clients ask me if { First Kiss Films } offered a smaller package – something that still captures the romance, joy and atmosphere of their wedding but in a different price-range.

Having your wedding properly captured is SO important and I’d love to accommodate couples who have fallen in love with our wedding films but don’t have room in their budget for one of our longer productions. So after listening to some fabulous suggestions I have put together a very special mini film package to compliment the other packages we currently offer.

Which brings me to to say…I’m very happy to announce that { First Kiss Films } now offers three unique wedding film packages: the Indie, the Feature and the Epic. The Indie, our newest package, is an affordable option for couples who love vintage wedding cinematography, only need about 5 hours of day-of coverage and feel that a 5 minute final film would be just long enough to capture their special day.

For more information about all of our packages please visit or just send us a message and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have!
