It is always amazing to see how much energy and work goes into a short two-minute video. The long days and hard work definitely paid off for this adorable Handmade Weddings book trailer. The trailer was shot in the Chronicle Books lobby—when you wheel away the bookshelves the space makes for a great blank canvas. Here are some behind the scenes photos from the day of the shoot and the adorable finished project.

The authors walk on set very, very slowly so the action looks longer in the video.
This month we released our third sewing book with Amy Butler.

Below Amy talks about her new book, and from where she draws inspiration. Check it out, it’s a lovely video.
