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!

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!

Jessica + Jacob
What an amazing day in Cincinnati. Note to brides wanting to have an outdoor wedding in Ohio in late September... if it ends up being sunny it will be one of the nicest days of the year. This day was absolutely perfect. Ault Park is a fabulous location to have a wedding. Jessica and Jacob are two class people with huge hearts. Their love for each other is evident, as is their love for God and his providence. This film was fairly easy to edit due to the fact that I had so much footage to work with. Some of the most beautiful moments to date were captured on this day. I love the shots at the end of everyone dancing. The sun was just setting ...

Ashley + Chris
I travelled to Youngstown Ohio (for the second time this year) to film Ashley and Chris' lovely wedding. The day started off on the sunny side, but took a turn for the worse just before the ceremony. Throughout the ceremony you could hear thunder booming outside. Due to the rain we were forced to shoot indoors, but I believe this was for the better! We ended up shooting at a beautiful building with plenty of big windows and natural light. We got some really unique shots that I otherwise would have never gotten if it was a nice day. The guys were hilarious together and provided plenty of funny moments. The reception was held at a banquet ce ...
