Alex + Win // Graylyn

Alex and Win, including their friends and family, are some of the best people I’ve ever met - and yeah, they know how to throw a party! I’m incredibly honored to have spent a magical fall weekend with them in Winston-Salem, North Carolina as they began to write the next chapter of their journey. It felt as if every moment was filled with laughter, high-fives, hugs, and lots of love. From the moment we first met I knew they were a perfect match, best friends, and will do amazing things together! The father of the bride put it perfectly saying, "Love, much like water always finds its level." And it certainly has with these two. Alex was absolutely stunning in her Vera Wang dress, and Win couldn’t have been more dapper in his tux and Scottish tartan! Most of the festivities took place at Graylyn, a breathtakingly beautiful property with deep significance to Alex’s family. Everything couldn’t have been more perfect. Every detail was thought of and perfectly appointed. Although I have a million favorite moments from our time together, theirs is a film that definitely needs to be seen rather than heard- so I’ll stop. Special thanks to all the amazing staff at Graylyn, Old Town Golf Club, and Eric Nicolas & One Love. Again, I couldn’t be more grateful to have captured these two amazing people and to now call them friends. Congratulations Alex and Win! To purchase the music used in this film please click here

Luke + Claie // Maui {The Princess & Action Man}

Luke and Claire, (The Princess and Action Man) had the most incredible wedding on the Island of Maui. From New Zealand, they chose to have a destination celebration with almost a week’s worth of adventure, sun, laughter, delicious food, live entertainment, and so much more. Over a weeks time you really have a chance to get to know someone - and it didn’t take long to realize both Claire and Luke are best friends, head over heels in love with each other, and make a perfect team. You wouldn’t have known that Maui set an all-time heat record on their wedding day by looking at them - they were all smiles! They are two amazing people who have a beautiful future in front of them. Their family and friends are equally impressive and did their part by filling each moment with love and joy! I have a million favorite moments from our time together, I could write forever about how special this week was and how honored I am to have captured it. But more than that I want you to see their film so I’ll stop. Special thanks to the mother of the bride Deborah who, with Claire (from thousands of kilometers away) planned one of the most breathtaking weddings I have ever seen! Thank you also to Andaz Maui, Sugar Beach Events, Wailea Golf Club, ‘Ami ‘Ami, Morimoto, Rio Event Design, and our live entertainment The Three Waiters! It was a huge honor to shoot along the impossibly talented Anna Kim! To purchase the music used in this film please click here

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
