In the Celtic tradition, there is a beautiful understanding of love and friendship. One of the fascinating ideas here is the idea of soul love; “Anam Cara” may sound like some new French perfume, but it actually refers to the Celtic spiritual belief of souls connecting and bonding .
In Celtic Spiritual tradition, it is believed that the soul radiates all about the physical body what some refer to as an aura. When you connect with another person and become completely open and trusting with that individual, your two souls begin to flow together.
Should such a deep bond be formed, it is said you have found your “Anam Cara” or soul friend.
Your “Anam Cara” always accepts you as you truly are, holding you in beauty and light. In order to appreciate this relationship, you must first recognize your own inner light and beauty. This is not always easy to do. The Celts believed that forming an “Anam Cara” friendship would help you to awaken your awareness of your own nature and experience the joys of others.
The “Anam Cara” was originally someone to whom you confessed, revealing the hidden intimacies of your life. With the “Anam Cara”, you could share your innermost self, your mind and your heart. This friendship was an act of recognition and belonging. When you had an “Anam Cara”, your friendship cut across all convention, morality and category. You were joined in an ancient and eternal way with the “friend of your soul”. The Celtic understanding did not set limitations of space or time on the soul. There is no cage for the soul. The soul is a divine light that flows into you and into your Other.
This art of belonging awakened and fostered a deep and special companionship. When you love, you open your life to an Other. All your barriers are down. Your protective distances collapse. This person is given absolute permission to come into the deepest temple of your spirit. Your presence and life can become their ground. It takes great courage to let someone so close. Where a friendship recognizes itself as a gift, it will remain open to its own ground of blessing….. When you are blessed with an “Anam Cara”, the Irish believe, you have arrived at that most sacred place: home. This bond between friends is indissoluble: “This, I say, is what is broken by no chances, what no interval of time or space can sever or destroy, and what even death itself cannot part”.

During our wedding day, we were so busy that we knew we could not possibly savor every moment to its fullest. The day flies by and seems so fleeting compared to all the months and months of planning that go into it. This is exactly why we wanted to have a videographer, and Michael and Tanga did not disappoint. Being able to watch our wedding day unfold, and to see each of those special moments again is a wonderful gift they provided us. All of the typical wedding day events were beautifully covered, but we were especially impressed with the amount of footage they captured of our guests enjoying themselves at our reception. We are very pleased with the product they delivered to us, and would recommend their skills to any bride and groom looking for a beautifully shot and produced, high-quality wedding day video.Sent on 08/08/2016

We absolutely LOVED working with Michael & Tanga of Anam Cara Productions!Sent on 02/22/2015
From inquiring on their services through Thumbtack, to meeting them in their home to discuss our wedding & coming back to do the voiceovers, with every step of the process this pair was very friendly, helpful & accommodating. We found them to be extremely professional yet with a calm & soothing approach which was especially helpful during the stressful period that can be wedding planning!
They were our favorite vendor to work with - they delivered on what they promised & provided us with an exceptional product for a tremendous value. Considering how important this lifelong memory is, we are very grateful for finding Michael & Tanga at Anam Cara. They truly do "work from the soul" and we highly recommend their videography services to others that are looking for a fantastic film team!
THANKS AGAIN Michael & Tanga!

I have huge appreciation for Anam Cara Productions! The videographer and staff were at my special event early, and stayed throughout the entire event! They were very affordable especially considering the quality of the video and the amount of hours that went into editing! I love how they captured all of the special moments! Another thing I appreciate is the quick turn-around time of receiving my video! I would definitely recommend them to any of my family and friends!Sent on 02/18/2015
