Eventful: Videography with Central Studios

It’s that time again; our next installment of Eventful is here! This time, we landed on the much-discussed topic of videography. Our Event Specialist, Brandon Harris, sat down with Paul and Kelly of Central Studios at the historical McCharles House in the heart of Tustin, CA. This dynamic husband and wife duo is involved in multiple facets of videography, including wedding films, branding stories and personal projects. We wanted to chat with them about the ins and outs of their profession and seek out their expert advice for all those curious engaged couples out there.

We met up with Paul and Kelly at the McCharles House’s courtyard and garden space. Built in 1885, the once private residence has been beautifully transformed into a tearoom, restaurant, and special event venue. The grounds house several distinct settings that flow together with charm. Whether you’re in the main green and pink Victorian house, outdoors, or the rustic Sequoia Lodge, the McCharles House is a lovely venue to host an intimate gathering.

When we walked back behind the house, the scenery began to shift from a typical Southern California landscape to something else entirely. Towering trees surrounded the courtyard and blooming flowers lined the path beneath our steps. Tucked behind lush greenery stood the Summer House, which had previously been the Wedding Gazebo at Disneyland. The scene conjured up that magical feeling of watching a couple exchange vows before their loved ones. It’s intimate moments like these that inspire Paul and Kelly to capture couples’ stories on film.

Central Studios is a videography team that specializes in simple and beautiful wedding films. Paul and Kelly make sure that their focus is always on the bride and groom throughout the entire process. Their goal is to capture each couple’s personality and energy through a creative and honest lens. Not only are we crazy about their work, we also appreciate the intentional perspective and humble attitude they bring to the industry.
