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.

John & Melissa – Wedding Film
John and Melissa were a great couple to film. Despite some heavy downpours right after the ceremony... the rain cleared and we had beautiful weather for the rest of the evening. The Rolls Royce was a class choice, and I swear the centerpieces on the head table were taller than John.This is my 3rd wedding film... and the first one that I would consider a complete film. The other two that I had done did not have any of the reception.I would love to hear your feedback! Thanks! Big thanks goes to Josh Stephens -a true professional :) for being my second shooter. Thanks to his slider and 7D we were able to get some slo-mo going and also introduce ...

Wedding Video and Photography at Beverly Mansion in Central Ohio | CHRISTINA + DAVID
When I was first contacted to shoot a wedding at Beverly Mansion I thought, "where the heck is it and what is the Beverly Mansion?" I had never heard of it, even though I have been doing wedding photography and videos for years. I learned that it was in Ohio, not too far from me. After doing some digging I discovered it was in Marengo county and was an absolutely gorgeous property. On top of all of this, I learned that the soon to be bride and groom had a connection to the location. Christina's grandmother actually grew up at Beverly Mansion and still lives here in Central Ohio. Even better news, her grandmother is still in good health and wo ...

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 ...
