I remember taking a deep breath and clicking "send" on one of my very first wedding films. Then I remember refreshing my inbox every thirty seconds for what felt like an hour. Alas, my phone beeped and I had a video message from Adrian, the groom. He'd filmed his wife watching their Highlight for the first time. Seeing her smile through the tears rolling down her cheeks was the most satisfying moment in my professional career.
That career started in the summer of 2011, in Denver, when I got the incredible opportunity to work on a production team creating shows for HGTV, food network, and DIY.
A year later, I began spending a lot of time with some very special people, the international award-winning photography duo, my big sis and bro-in-law, Morgan and Amir.
Their work has a nearly indescribable allure. It's creatively brilliant, but more importantly it's emotional and honest; In the same instant, you can be captivated by the artistry and feel connected to the moment. I found that so inspiring and I wanted to understand the science and/or magic that had produced it.
Fortunately for me, they were mostly dissatisfied
with videographers that they'd worked with. In 2013,
they gave me the honor of bringing me into their
world. To be honest, it was terrifying, but they
gave me all of the encouragement, feedback,
and inspiration that I needed.
Turns out it's not magic, it's respect. One of my favorite reactions from clients is "How did you do that!? We didn't even notice that you were there!"
I am committed to minimal interference with the experience of my clients and their guests. Your wedding should look like a celebration, not a movie set. I use long-range lenses, subtly placed microphones, and little-to-no on-camera light. I believe that everyone should be able to enjoy themselves without "feeling the camera." It's our job to capture moment, not kill the moment.
My greatest wish is that my clients and their families can relive their first chapter in a genuine, emotional, and captivating way, for generations to come.
