Wedding at The Lake Club - Bride on porch at Boardman Park

Wedding Video at The Lake Club | Youngstown, OH | Jenna + Ron

I traveled to Youngstown, OH for a Memorial Day weekend wedding. As you will see below, it was an absolutely beautiful day! The bride and groom were a joy to work with, and I am really proud of what I captured here! Everything wound up at The Lake Club, which was a fantastic venue.

Things started in a quiet neighborhood outside of town. The girls all got ready at Jenna’s parent’s house. I was able to capture Jenna’s interview on her back porch, with some lovely trees in the background. She read the card she wrote to him out loud since she was nervous about the interview. After this, I booked over to the church and actually delivered that card to Ron when I met him. We shot his interview out front, and he started by reading the card. I like the way the intro cuts together with her voice over the visuals of him.

The ceremony was in a really pretty church (St. Christine) with stone floors. Anytime I get away from carpet in a church I am happy! I was using a hacked Canon 5D2 to shoot Raw video for certain parts of the day, via Magic Lantern. This was the first wedding I tried it. It made me really nervous, not knowing if everything would turn out, but it did, and the footage looks great. Very sharp, and the color is amazing.

After formals at the church we went to Boardman with the bridal party for photos. This location is just awesome! The light was beautiful coming through the leaves. I was able to get some really nice footage of both the two of them, and the wedding party. Captured some funny moments of the group when they were unaware also!

From here we went to The Lake Club, which is situated on the west side of Evans Lake, ten miles south of Youngstown. The property is very pretty. There is a golf club there, but you wouldn’t know it with all the trees. There are steps leading down from the back of The Lake Club down to the water. There is a large green space all the way down to the lake. It is very picturesque and I had no problem finding some pretty shots of the two of them. We went out late at night and got some additional footage with lights twinkling in the background.

People in Youngstown love their cookie tables. This wedding was no exception. There was a LONG table, overflowing with every cookie you could imagine. Everyone gets a bag and fills up before leaving. Really cool tradition that is common in both Youngstown and Pittsburgh.

Congratulations to the bride and groom!  I wish you many years of happiness!

Amy and Nick – Short Film
Had a wonderful time shooting Amy and Nick's April wedding. The two of them have very big hearts for each other and their families. Family from all over the world came to witness the event, and not one left unsatisfied. The attention to detail was spectacular and no single thing was looked over in the planning of the day. It was great to be a part of all of it, and share in a very memorable day for these two. Best of luck in Minnesota!

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 ...

Myles and Jennifer – Wedding Film
Jennifer is all laughs, and it is hard to be in the same room with her without smiling. She just has that affect on you. Myles is a stand up guy and I knew the minute I met him that he was classy and well spoken gentleman. The day could not have been much better for this wedding. The wedding took place in my hometown of Delaware, with the reception taking place at Delaware's pride and joy (sorry Rutherford B. Hayes)... the Little Brown Jug. I had no wedding videos in 2011, so I was a bit rusty. I forgot how heavy all the equipment was, and how much harder it was to go from point A to point B. In the end I feel this is my best wedding video ...
