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 that part. I knew it was a special moment that they would cherish forever.

If you are wondering about the pie, Jill has never baked anything for Mike. Apparently, Mike likes pie, and Jill decided that she would give it shot and bake her first pie to give to him on their wedding day. I love his reaction after the first bite! He says ‘It’s Good!’ really surprised… but since I cut that audio out, you might think he is saying ‘Holy SH#T!!!’ haha! That is what it looks like to me at least!

I hope you enjoy this film. I had a lot of fun shooting it and putting it all together.

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 ...

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 ...

Isole Di Brissago Wedding Film | Switzerland | Bettina + Martin
Where do I begin?  I have been fortunate enough to visit many places in the world, yet I found myself speechless many times this past July as I visited Switzerland for the very first time.  Bettina found my work on YouTube and sent me a kind note about the films I have created and mentioned that she wished I could come film her wedding.  She had no idea if I would even be able to travel.  The second I saw the email I quickly googled the location, 'Isole di Brissago,' and after seeing just three photos knew that I wanted to be a part of this celebration.  We began preparations.  This one would be a little different for me.  It was going to be ...
