How do you get a wedding film that's different from everyone else's?
Let’s face it. In a way, every wedding is the same. And because of that, most wedding videos look alike. Two people get all dressed up and stand in front of other people to say “I do.” Perhaps this is followed by cocktails and hors d’oeuvres. Later there’s dinner, drinks, dancing, and hopefully cake. So how do I give you a wedding film that’s different from everyone else’s?
It’s simple. I focus on what truly makes your wedding unique. You and your story.
Most people think they want a wedding film but what they really want is to not forget.
So then, the question is, what do you want to remember? I’m the videographer for those who want to remember how they felt and who they were as individuals and as a couple during such an important part of their lives. They want to remember, not just what happened during the wedding, but the courtship that led up to it and the dreams they imagined for their future. And what about the other people who watch your film? How do I want them to feel? My goal is not for them to feel as if they were there at your wedding. That’s simple documentary. I think anyone who knows how to can set up a few cameras on tripods and press the record button can easily do that. Instead, I want them to feel like they know who you are.
BEFORE YOUR WEDDING
I get to know you and your future spouse. I want to know what makes you unique and the most compelling parts of your story. Then I’ll propose how we’ll tell your story that goes beyond the wedding day.
ON THE DAY
Here’s a shocking truth – not everything matters. I won’t capture everything and everyone. But, because I took the time to find out what is actually important to you, I focus on those people and things.
I’ll artfully create a film that not only represents your wedding day but the essence of you as a couple. You’re not just buying a film but a time capsule for a very special time in both of your lives.
Working with me
That’s a candid photo my wife took of me while we were halfway up a volcano in Ecuador… with our 3-yr old son. But, that’s a story for another day. We travel a lot. But as I write this in the summer of 2020, we’re looking for a place to plant our roots in the Pacific Northwest of the USA.
My wedding filmmaking style is all about artistically capturing real moments as they happen. My bet is you’ll want to remember the version of you showing off your signature dance moves much more than the version that’s posing with a fake smile.
In addition to the unique aspects of my creative work, I set myself apart by being exceptionally organized. I know wedding planning can be a stressful time and I want to make working with me easy and fun. I only take on a limited number of clients so I can give you the attention you deserve and I invest in tools that allow us to stay on the same page before, during, and after your wedding.
On a personal note, I love good coffee, hiking in the mountains, riding my motorcycle, French pastries, and building things with my hands..

Destination Wedding | Mexico
Marisol and Miguel, despite living far from one another decide to take a risk on a long-distance relationship. Three days after the decision, the pandemic hits, threatening to keep them apart. And literally on the day Miguel comes to visit to ask Marisol’s parents for their permission, the worst possible thing happens. As with all wedding videos, we sort of know the ending – they still end up getting married. But what captivated me about Marisol and Miguel’s story is how they managed to not only survive but grow through the toughest of times. Watch the video to see the whole story.
A Note to Wedding Planners and Vendors
We share the same vision.
Like you, I want offer my clients an extraordinary experience. I understand the importance of collaborating with planners and other vendors so you’ll see that I’m calm, confident, professional, organized, and a pleasure to work with.
I make wedding films because I believe they have the power to preserve the meaningful moments of a day that goes by in the blink of an eye. By combining the principles of storytelling with beautiful cinematic composition, my films make people feel something. And my hope is that when the couple watches their film, the feeling it evokes takes them back to that special time of their lives, no matter how much time has passed.
Let's make a film with heart and soul.
you have a story. I’LL Help you tell it.
