Rachel + Ryan – Apostle Islands, WI

In July I travelled up to Lake Superior to be a part of a most extraordinary wedding. I was with Ryan and Rachel for 4 days and got to know them pretty well. Ryan is an experienced Captain and Rachel is a jack of all trades. They have tons of passion, and know what their goals are. I don’t see anything stopping these two and can’t wait to see what they do together!

Rachel actually surprised Ryan the morning of the wedding with a boat that she built for him by hand! By far the best gift I have ever seen given on a wedding day. Maybe ever! The time and work that went into it, along with all the logistics to get it to the wedding site unseen, all while keeping it a secret was over the top. Ryan was completely shocked when he saw it and you can tell it was the perfect gift. More importantly.. it floats 🙂

I have never really been boating before. I got to spend a lot of time on their boat, and I can now see why people spend their whole weekend on the water. Add to this the fact that we were in the midst of some of the most beautiful coastline I have ever seen, it is amazing anyone up there ever goes back to land.

We had an absolutely perfect day. When it needed to be sunny it was. When it was dark and grey it didn’t matter because we were just cruising from one location to the next (we are talking a 5 hour boat ride from the ceremony location to the reception!).

Really proud of this film and hope you enjoy it too!

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 car ...

Wedding Video and Photography at Beverly Mansion in Central Ohio | CHRISTINA + DAVID
When I was first contacted to shoot a wedding at Beverly Mansion I thought, "where the heck is it and what is the Beverly Mansion?" I had never heard of it, even though I have been doing wedding photography and videos for years. I learned that it was in Ohio, not too far from me. After doing some digging I discovered it was in Marengo county and was an absolutely gorgeous property. On top of all of this, I learned that the soon to be bride and groom had a connection to the location. Christina's grandmother actually grew up at Beverly Mansion and still lives here in Central Ohio. Even better news, her grandmother is still in good health and wo ...

Jillian + Michael
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. From the minute I met them back at that Starbucks, I knew that their day would be special. Mike designed a ring for Jill to wear on her right hand that used stones from his grandmother's ring. His grandmother wanted Jill to have it after she passed away. Jill had no idea about this until she received the ring, and heard its story just moments before the ceremony. 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 ...
