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 center and I will admit I was a little hesitant when I pulled up to the location and saw that it was in a strip mall. But the second I walked in the door I realized it had been completely transformed into one of the most beautiful reception halls I have ever seen. Crystals were everywhere. The flowers were amazing. There was a fireplace keeping people cozy. A photo booth keeping people crazy. A cookie table keeping people happy. It was awesome.

Really proud of this one!

Congratulations Ashley and Chris!

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 ...

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, ...

Wedding Video and Photography at Millwick in Southern CA | Jenn + Dan
Los Angeles is quite the character. Her streets always bustling, her people always moving, her buildings glimmering in the rising and setting sun. Some love it here. Some hate it here. Millwick is a gem in the center of its concrete heart. Being in Los Angeles is like playing golf. It has the ability to drive you mad, causing you to swear you will leave and never come back, but then a few moments later you will discover a charm that can be found nowhere else, which will leave you wanting to come back. You may play a horrible round of golf and then hit just ONE shot on 18 that is decent enough to make you smile and walk to the parking lot fee ...
