Sonoma California Wedding Video - Bride and Groom in Field at Sunset
November 6, 2015

Wedding Video in Sonoma, California | Amy + Jeff

Where do I begin? This was by far the most beautiful wedding I have ever been to.  I have been to California multiple times, but never to wine country.  It is without a doubt some of the prettiest countryside I have ever laid eyes on.  Sonoma was just fantastic.  By the end of the first night, I was already picturing myself living there.  If given the opportunity, I could easily pick up and move my family there without hesitation.  It is that nice.  I would most likely only be able to afford a yurt though…

Amy and Jeff found me online and liked my work enough to fly me across the country to join them.  Every aspect of the day was perfectly planned and executed.  Major kudos to Jamie with A Savvy Event for keeping everything on track!  The wedding took place at an adorable little white church and the reception followed at the Sonoma Golf Club, just down the road.  Dinner was held outside, under a huge tree, and the rest of the night happened inside.  Unfortunately, you don’t get to see all the details from the inside reception in this video.  It was just too much to cram into 5 minutes!  I had the pleasure of working with Mike Larson and his wife, Rachel.  I saw Mike’s work years ago and was instantly attracted to it.  Getting to shoot side by side with him was an honor.  He is amazing at what he does. Book him. If he is booked already, book me! haha

To top it all off, we were given an amazing sunset, wherein the reds in the sky lasted for more than 10 minutes.  Their wedding day just so happened to be the last day of my 30th year.  The next day I would turn 31.  In my 30 years of life, this was the best sunset I have seen. What a way to end it!

I hope I was able to capture even just a glimpse of the beauty I experienced when I was out there.  Pictures and video still do not do the day justice!

Beverly Mansion Wedding Bride Groom Portrait
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 ...

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!

Myles and Jennifer – Wedding Film
Jennifer is all laughs, and it is hard to be in the same room with her without smiling. She just has that affect on you. Myles is a stand up guy and I knew the minute I met him that he was classy and well spoken gentleman. The day could not have been much better for this wedding. The wedding took place in my hometown of Delaware, with the reception taking place at Delaware's pride and joy (sorry Rutherford B. Hayes)... the Little Brown Jug. I had no wedding videos in 2011, so I was a bit rusty. I forgot how heavy all the equipment was, and how much harder it was to go from point A to point B. In the end I feel this is my best wedding video ...
