One of my favorite things about living in the Pacific Northwest: the outdoors. Everywhere you look, there is a new adventure just calling your name. I have explored many states and areas, but Washington must be hands down my favorite. Within a short drive, I can go kayaking in an endless number of lakes, I can hike miles upon miles through the woods and mountains, I can walk through the desert dunes and ski down the slopes of several mountains. Being a creative, all of these places are the perfect spots for beautiful shots. I often bring my own camera along and end up walking away with a handful of photos and videos that will last a lifetime.
After filming many different kinds of weddings, I decided it was time for me to experience the magic myself. I mean, what is a better way to understand what the bride and groom are going through than to literally stand in their own shoes. So the Summer of 2016 I proposed to the love of my life Sarah, and by the Summer of 2017 I was a married man! She has been supporting my love for this craft for many years and has stood by me through each any every film. She personally gives me the “GO” or “NO GO” when a film is completed before I send off the final copy to the client. Shes my forever partner!
The wedding industry is something that just fell into my arms one day. One day I was filming small projects and short films and then out of nowhere people began asking me to film their special day. 6 years later, here we are. My style has progressed tremendously over the past few years and with each wedding I am perfecting little tidbits here and there. I am the kind of professional that is constantly evolving; always aquiring new technique and gear.
Our style is to blend in with the background. Because I’ve worked with so many clients in so many different environments, you’ll barely notice I’m there – the occasional touch to fix a hem or request to turn slightly is all you’ll notice or doing a few staged shots is all I would ask of you. I prefer capturing candid moments – one where the groom and his bride are 100% real, both in love and having fun.
