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

Music: Album Leaf. BT. Michelle Featherstone

High Line Car House Wedding Jill and Mike are such a great couple. I am so glad they chose me to shoot a wedding film for them.

Watching her receive that ring is one of the best moments I have ever filmed. I teared up multiple times while editing this film when I got to t ...

Country Music Hall of Fame Wedding Video | Nashville, TN | Katie + Kendall
This was my second time shooting a wedding in Nashville and it just so happened to be almost a carbon copy of the first time I filmed in the Music City.  The bride and groom got married in the same chapel and had their reception at the Country Music Hall of Fame, just like the first couple.   Let me talk a little bit about Katie and Kendall.  These two were amazing. I met them on Friday at the chapel for the rehearsal. I had yet to meet them in person and had only been in touch with them via email.  Katie was very sweet and made sure everything was okay with me getting in.  When I met Kendall, I knew within seconds that this guy was a good d ...

Wedding Video at SmogShoppe in Southern CA | Maura + Matthew
I had so much fun spending the weekend with Maura and Matthew in Southern California this past August. They are such a kind, enthusiastic, and caring couple and I knew going into it that the day would be special. Their venue, SmogShoppe played a very important part of the day and separated us from the buzz of the city. It is a little oasis in the land of concrete. The Culver Hotel is where everyone stayed and got ready. It is a historic hotel on the west side of Los Angeles. This is the hotel that the entire cast of 'The Wizard of Oz' slept when they were filming that movie. Word on the street is that they had multiple munchkins in each room ...
