MORE THAN A BUZZWORD, A PHILOSOPHY
I'm here to make you look good. That's true. But I find that the most attractive look is just... love and authenticity. Plain and simple: those looks and smiles you give each other naturally are the goal. The way your hands move and your eyes lock. The way you steal a smooch when no one is watching. The way you give him the 'omg we are married' face and his eyes sparkle back. When you aren't afraid of doing a pose wrong or wondering if you're bending your elbow enough or aiming your chin the right way. When you just interact together in your true form, that's when I see the magic. That's where the real beauty lies. When you are comfortable and relaxed. When you're able to let loose, laugh, and enjoy... you're flawless.
Just interact in your true form.
"let loose, laugh, enjoy... you're flawless."
MY FILMS ARE
Sentimental. Artistic. Fun.
Your wedding video should authentically represent the two of you. And my bet is that you're both pretty dynamic together. You don't like watching a sterile generic wedding video and I don't particularly enjoy those either. So can we just skip over that? Seriously, what makes you two tick? Do you like to drive until you get lost on road trips? Do you eat ice cream every Friday night? Are you having tacos and margaritas at your backyard reception (don't forget the cheese dip!)? Do you navigate this crazy life together, hand in hand, through all of the twists and turns and still manage to find the time to be wildly romantic and spontaneous? Weddings can be both emotional and festive. We can walk and chew gum at the same time. So, well.... let's reflect all of those vibes in your wedding film too, shall we?

AS I SEE IT, THE UNIVERSE BROUGHT US TOGETHER FOR A REASON: TO CREATE SOMETHING TOGETHER THAT JUST FEELS RIGHT.
I WANT YOU TO RE-WATCH THESE MEMORIES, AND YEAR AFTER YEAR REMIND YOURSELF THAT "EVERY LOVE STORY IS BEAUTIFUL BUT OURS IS MY FAVORITE." LET'S TELL THAT STORY. WHEN ELSE DO YOU HAVE A CAMERA CREW AROUND LIKE YOU'RE THE STAR OF A REALITY SHOW?!
Anyone can hit a button to record a moment.
Whoa, wait a second. Am I trying to put myself out of a job?? No. Because you and I are going to take this wedding video thing 17 solid steps further than just hitting a button. I firmly believe it takes an artist who is conscious of all the little moments to thoughtfully assemble those little bits and pieces into an impactful story. The honest and real experiences are what make a wedding video personal. And I really believe these moments of your love story should be captured to live on forever (hellooooo These Forever Moments is the name)!
You value the boutique feel of a wedding day and one that is steeped in authentic moments. Your day is more about the way you feel than the proper posing technique. Moments captured on your day will be moments that happened without direction, without posing, without forced smiles. You'll be smiling because of the way you feel, you'll be crying because you're overwhelmed with joy, you'll be beaming because of the way your casual but intimate affair has been pulled together. Your biggest adventure truly began when you found the love of your life and your wedding day is an excursion on the journey through life togethe
Your wedding isn't meant to be an Instagram/social media trend. You want an outdoorsy wedding because you're an outdoorsy person. When adventure calls, you answer. The outdoors are where you're most comfortable. The fresh air gives you a renewed sense of day and you feel in your element as long as you're in the great outdoors. It only makes sense to have your wedding focused on the things you love and appreciate most - your love and intimacy, your commitment to each other, and the beauty of nature.
A super traditional day may not appeal to you. You're the couple who envisions a dreamy wedding set in the woods, at a venue with special significance to you, or a gorgeous quaint atmosphere you've carefully curated. You value the deep connection between you and your future spouse more than the number of people in attendance. You hand picked your officiant, and the music you've selected sings to your soul. Your wedding is a celebration of your true selves and you will be surrounded by those who know and care for you deeply. Your wedding isn't a one day production meant for show, but rather a celebration that is a deeper symbol for what's to come in your life together, in marriage.
Don't you just want to enjoy the moments
on your wedding day?
There's a lot that happens on a wedding day, but there's also a lot we can do to allow you to cherish what is actually happening around you. When you watch your film, you should re-live how your wedding day felt. You should see those little moments that were happening when you weren't looking. You should remember things that you thought you wouldn't forget, but already did. You should experience your love and relationship from a perspective that you'll never have the chance to capture again once the day is over. Do you feel that way too?
