Stoneback Family Film @Stoneback Family Estate

We are so freaking excited!

Last Thursday we spent the most wonderful afternoon with the most beautiful family!

Funny backstory, actually: this film has been in the plans for about four YEARS! Bayle contacted us in 2014 after seeing a few of our wedding films, and, having fallen in love with our style, wanted to figure out how we could work together to create a family film.

A weird fall (where everything died too quickly), a new pregnancy, then baby duty, left us still in contact every year, but no definitive plans...

Until Valentine's Day of this year - this is the year we were going to make it happen.

And, boy, did we! Not only does Bayle have incredible style and is enchantingly beautiful, so does and is the rest of her family!

Here, after four years of teasing, we finally got together on her TEN YEAR ANNIVERSARY last Thursday, and we began to create their gorgeous family film full of love, laughter, and happily ever after:

The Stoneback Family Film

Here's to an eternity of love and joy with more to come! Happiest of Anniversaries, Bayle + Jason, and happy union to us for finally coming together to create something extra special. 

Here's to Bayle, Jason, Charlie, Parker, Reed, + Ford! Love you all so much ❤

Updike Farmspread Spring Open House Event

Filmed by Sweet Start | www.SweetStart.com

On a misty Sunday, May 20th, a few hours after the sun rose, Sweet Start Alex + Shawn found themselves on an ethereal fairytale farm right in the heart of Princeton, where you would least expect it.

Arriving only minutes after their hosts, Feather + Rock Events, Holly + Mia greeted Alex + Shawn excitedly. They still all looked up worriedly at the gray, overcast sky.

As the rest of the cast and crew showed up for the morning, the gorgeous styled shoots began to take shape as everyone who arrived hurriedly created beautiful settings inspired by Free the People, Anthropologie, + Pottery Barn.

Watch how everything quickly comes together, the beauty each team creates, + the incredible local vendors you will absolutely HAVE TO HAVE at your next epic event.

Music was captured live by the incredible performers of Owls & Lions.

What started as a day with impending rain, actually ended in sunshine, friends, and beautiful memories.
