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!

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 ...

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 ...

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. They are a really classy couple.   Rain was in the forecast so a tent was brought out for the ceremony, but it ended up being a perfect day and we were able to get lots of great footage, both inside and outside. I love the set of stairs off the main lobby a ...
