John & Melissa – Wedding Film

John and Melissa were a great couple to film. Despite some heavy downpours right after the ceremony… the rain cleared and we had beautiful weather for the rest of the evening. The Rolls Royce was a class choice, and I swear the centerpieces on the head table were taller than John.This is my 3rd wedding film… and the first one that I would consider a complete film. The other two that I had done did not have any of the reception.I would love to hear your feedback! Thanks!

Big thanks goes to Josh Stephens -a true professional 🙂 for being my second shooter. Thanks to his slider and 7D we were able to get some slo-mo going and also introduce subtle horizontal movement into a lot of the shots. Check out his work at thelensman.com

Calamigos Ranch Wedding Video | Birchwood Room | Malibu, CA | Penelope + Josh
I am so fortunate to have had the opportunity to head to Malibu, California to shoot this Calamigos Ranch Wedding.  Penelope and Josh are two of the sweetest people you will meet and after watching this video you will understand what I am talking about.  They contacted me late in the year and asked if I would be willing to make the trip out.

The bride stayed on the premises in one of the suites, which had a large glass shower in the middle of the bedroom.  The groom got ready up the hill with the ...

Chelsea +Layne – Photos and Highlight Film
Such a beautiful day for this couple's amazing wedding! No detail was overlooked... and style for miles! Layne and Chelsea hired me to capture both photos and video for their wedding day. I had my brother fly out from LA to help with the video side, and had my father, a long time 2nd shooter of mine help get additional photos and clips. I love being able to provide the bride with both the photos and the video! I hope to be able to book a lot more weddings in the future where I can do both. It makes for a much smoother process having everyone on the same 'team.' ...

Ed + Shade
I travelled to Asbury Park in the great State of New Jersey to walk in Bruce Springsteen's steps and capture Ed and Shade's beautiful wedding ceremony at the historic Paramount Theater.   I absolutely love these two. They have such great hearts. I could sense the minute that I met them that they were something special. I love getting to travel for weddings. I feel that I connect with the bride and groom much more when I spend the whole weekend with them, and this was no exception. I'm already trying to figure out how to take them up on their offer to bring my family to Asbury Park for a getaway! I love the way this wedding film turned o ...
