Mat + Jennifer // Write Your Own Adventure

Mat and Jennifer put their relationship to the test right at the begging of this new chapter in their lives. They packed up everything they owned and together with their dog Jack moved across country the week of their wedding! I wouldn’t normally recommend this, however if anyone could do it it’s these two. After spending any amount of time with them it is so apparent that they are best friends, and make an incredible team! The wedding weekend started with a beautiful rehearsal dinner on Devils Lake. With Famous Dave's catering, lawn games, and a truly striking sunset it was the perfect way to start the celebration. The wedding was held at Trappers Turn golf club in Wisconsin Dells. Surrounded by family and friends, and the DOH (dog of honor), Mat and Jennifer joined their lives together and had one heck of a party! It was truly an honor to share this weekend with them and there is so much more I want to say but I’ll let their film say it for me. There is nothing better than seeing two best friends make really important promises to each other. Thank you for having me! To purchase the music used in this film please click here

David + Sara {and Bud!} // Breathtaking Intelachen Wedding

David and Sara are awesome - and it’s not just because they’re parents to Bud - they are both incredibly kind and share a deep love for their friends, family, and each other. Together with Bud, (one of the sweetest dogs I’ve ever met) they make a stunningly beautiful new family. The 4th of July is very special to David and Sara. It was on that date 3 years ago when they first met, and last year when David proposed. Without giving anything away I think they did a phenomenal job of incorporating the 4th into their wedding! I have a million favorite moments from our time together and one that stands out is a toast from Sara’s Grandpa who said, “If you hold hands with the the person you love… throughout life… the bumps in the road will disappear.” I want to share more, but their films says it all. Everything from Giannis Steakhouse, The Church of the Ascension, to Intelachen Country Club was absolutely perfect and I am so incredibly honored to captured this celebration. They had a breathtakingly beautiful wedding day planned and coordinated by the very talented Rita Swanson of Premier Planning. It was also a huge honor to shoot alongside Laura Ivanova! Congratulations again David and Sara (and Bud)! To purchase the music used in this film please click here

Chris + Gina // Stunning Minneapolis & St. Paul Wedding

Family, celebration and love are what come to mind when I think about the incredible wedding of Chris and Gina. Family and friends traveled from across the country, some from just a few miles away, and came together to surround the newly married couple with shared joy as they danced, ate, sang, toasted, laughed and cried. Even without the dramatic lighting, stunning decor, and flawless design the wedding day was beautiful in its own right. Two best friends joined their lives together, starting the next chapter of their adventure surrounded in love. This was a true Twin Cities wedding with locations in both St. Paul and Minneapolis. From the Loews Hotel, Church of the Assumption, to The Depot; every detail was perfectly appointed and each event went off without a hitch thanks to the very talented Joan Nilsen of Ambiente. I have so many favorite moments from our time together but Chris and Gina’s wedding film tells the story better than I ever could. I am beyond grateful to have gotten to know such amazing people and congratulations again on a very special day! Special thanks to Nick Pitera for his awesome performance of Edge of Glory at the reception! To purchase the music used in this film please click here

William + Pamela // Kauai Wedding

Being given a front row seat to a special celebration like a wedding is a huge honor - and it’s amazing how quickly you get to know someone you’ve just met over the course of a day or weekend as you film them. I was lucky enough to have almost a week with Pam and Will as we traveled Kauai telling their story. In addition to capturing some amazing footage they became good friends. As a former Apple employee, master inventor (we’re talking mind-controlled skate board stuff here), IMB genius award winner, TED speaker, and the list goes on… Will, aka Whurley, is one impressive individual. However, as impressive as his accomplishments are, he’s even a nicer guy making him a perfect match for his new wife. Pam’s beauty stole the spotlight the backdrop of Kauai usually has; not an easy task, but even still it was her heart, kindness, and love for her friends, family, and new husband that trumped even her beauty. Together they are kind, caring, thoughtful, fun and most of all best friends. I have so many favorite moments from our time together but their film says it better than any description ever could. Ok, one spoiler. Being the amazing and generous people they are, Pam and Will insisted on sharing the incredible setting of the Secret Beach House with Nick and Kerry-Lee for their engagement. To see that full story please click here. Thank you Will and Pam for inviting me in and allowing me to tell such a beautiful story. Special thanks to the Secret Beach House, The St. Regis Princeville, and as always it was a huge pleasure to shoot alongside the incredibly talented Sea Light Studios.

Kerry-Lee + Nick // Kauai Engagement

Kerry-Lee and Nick traveled to Kauai to attend Pamela and Will’s wedding. Being the amazing and generous people they are, the bride and groom insisted on sharing the breathtaking backdrop of the Secret Beach House for their engagement. With some pre-planning, coordination, and just a touch of lying, we convinced Kerry-Lee that she and Nick were going to film a personal message to the new couple - what better excuse to film a 4 camera engagement?! It’s hard to top a proposal in Kauai, but Nick did! Kerry-Lee is from South Africa so Nick took the extra step learning and asking for her hand in Afrikaans. Thank you to Will and Pam for sharing your wedding adventure, and to Nick and Kerry-Lee for allowing me to capture such a joyful moment. Congratulations on your engagement and best wishes!
