Let’s move to the interview!

What is your favorite part about your role as a VIDEOGRAPHeR during wedding planning?

My favorite part about my role as a videographer during the wedding planning phase is hearing the excitement from a couple when they explain all the detail and thought that they’re putting into their special day. Every couple is unique, and everyone has a different story. Hearing their excitement gets me excited, and gets the creativity flowing!

What is your favorite part about your role as a VIDEOGRAPHER during wedding days?

I love capturing all of the special moments that make the couple and their wedding so amazing. Capturing authentic moments for the couple that they can enjoy not only in the months following the wedding, but in the years and decades to come is really special. Sometimes I think about how cool it would be to see footage from my grandparents’ wedding day, and it gets me excited to know that the video I’m putting together will be shared for generations.

What part of the wedding day is your favorite?

My favorite part of the wedding day is the ceremony! It’s the culmination of all that goes into the day, and the joy on the couples’ faces when they walk down the aisle is contagious!

How would you describe your business aesthetic?

I love working with emotional couples with great stories, who are looking for an authentic feel to their wedding film. I love outdoor, boho, and adventurous weddings, and most of all, weddings where couples are having the time of their lives.

What’s the hardest part of the behind the scenes when it comes to Your business?

It’s hard to say. It’s such a unique business, so it’s tough to nail down a ‘hard part’ when everyone is so happy in the footage I’m working with. It rubs off on me!

What did your journey into the wedding industry look like?

I started my career working in reality TV, and was always drawn to the storytelling aspect of it. I stumbled across some really epic wedding films on YouTube, and knew I wanted to take my storytelling experience from TV and apply it to wedding films. I got out my cameras, and the rest is history!

What / who inspires your work?

White in Revery, Wild Oak Films, and the YouTube community. I always want to be inspired and to be trying something new!

What advice do you have for couples planning their wedding?

There’s so much that goes into planning your wedding, but it’s important to remember to take time along the way for non-wedding planning related activities. Keep doing the fun stuff that makes you who you are!

If you have the day off, what do you do?

If I have the day off you can find my wife and I chasing our three boys around the house, building toy train tracks, forts, and digging in the mud. Three boys at home makes life crazy and we love it!
