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

Granville Inn Wedding Video | Granville, OH | Abbe + Josh
I have been to Granville multiple times, but this Granville Inn Wedding video is of one of my favorite days spent out there.  Abbe and Josh were just great to be around and had the best attitudes.  They were both so kind and welcoming. Funny enough, after the toasts were up Josh grabbed the mic to say a few words and the first person he publicly thanked was me, which was really humbling.

I love the set of stairs off the main lobby a ...

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.' ...

Kauai, Hawaii Wedding Video and Photography | Melissa + Sam
I was so excited when Melissa and Sam hired me to shoot their Hawaii Wedding.  For one, I had never been to Hawaii, it is the only state I had not been to. Yep, I have been to all the other states, including Alaska. Me and 5 other guys drove a Honda Odyssey from Ohio to Alaska and back in 5 days back in 2006, but that is another story.  Besides getting to finally go to Hawaii, I was getting to go to what I have heard to be the best of the islands, Kauai.  Besides going to Kauai and shooting the wedding, I was going to get to hang out with them for the whole week and join them on all sorts of fun activities. Our first day had us viewing the s ...
