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.

Ed + Shade
I travelled to Asbury Park in the great State of New Jersey to walk in Bruce Springsteen's steps and capture Ed and Shade's beautiful wedding ceremony at the historic Paramount Theater.   I absolutely love these two. They have such great hearts. I could sense the minute that I met them that they were something special. I love getting to travel for weddings. I feel that I connect with the bride and groom much more when I spend the whole weekend with them, and this was no exception. I'm already trying to figure out how to take them up on their offer to bring my family to Asbury Park for a getaway! I love the way this wedding film turned o ...

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!

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 ...
