Masha + Misha | ‘The Honeymoon’ Engagement Film

Planning a wedding is one of the first great adventures as a couple, and it’s no secret that selecting a honeymoon destination is one of the biggest rewards. Masha and Misha did a clever thing by asking their friends to contribute to their ‘honeymoon fund’ in lieu of a wedding registry. Then, all that was left to do was to decide on the destination. Masha is an attorney, and Misha is completing a Ph.D. in Political Science. A healthy debate was sure to ensue. In steps SashaKino, to capture that debate with artistic flair, and bring it back to the generous guests in the form of a film. There’s no question that Masha and Misha’s wedding attendees were quite delighted to see that their gifts were put to good use. The film is authentically Masha and Misha. We collaborated on the script, and then shot the film in just one day at their home in the Peninsula, a horse ranch in Pacifica, and several locations in San Francisco. They were a joy to work with, and quite the natural actors. We also had great help for this film from our good friend, Igor, who masterfully played his part, as well as invaluable assistance from the restaurant folk in Belden Place. So where did they decide to go on their honeymoon? Watch the film and find out.
