This film brings me to tears every time I watch it! And since I’m the cinematographer…that’s a lot of tears! Georgia and Graham asked me to not only film their rehearsal dinner and wedding…but also to create a love story film that was shown at their rehearsal dinner. For this project, we decided to build their wedding film around their love story. It’s hard to explain with this film means to me. I have had the privilege of creating wedding films for three of Georgia’s siblings so now doing a forth sibling has been such and honor. It was special to also film one of the first weddings at Greenville’s new Westfield! Kelly and Kristen of Walton Event Design put their incredible talents to work and created a breathtaking magical experience. The design was a surprise for the bride and groom. Watch their reaction when the doors are opened! And working again with Olivia Griffin was wonderful! Georgia and Graham I hope this film is special to you for many years to come!
Creative expression is woven into my soul.
I suppose I owe it all to my parents. My mom was a piano teacher, and from her I gained a lifelong love of music. From my dad, a passionate photographer, I gained a love of craft, of color, and composition. From them both, I learned the importance of being aware of and sensitive to emotions, both my own, and those of others. Given all that, perhaps it was inevitable that I would follow my heart into the world of wedding cinematography.
What a privilege it is to experience a groom’s tear when he first sees his bride…to see and hear a bride overcome with emotion, as she reads words of love and devotion from her fiancé, only hours before they are to be wed. Years of experience, plus an innate sense of how to be in the right place at the right time, allow me to capture the special moments that make this day uniquely yours. Then, through careful editing and with attention paid to personalized detail, I weave those moments into a film that will make you laugh, smile and cry, now, and forever more.
But I can’t do this, until I know you. Because no two brides and grooms, or their families, are alike. That’s why I always begin by building relationships. Plus, I love meeting people! So, let’s chat, or meet over a cup of coffee or glass of wine. Let’s explore how we might transform your magical day into magnificent memories. This job is a cherished gift that comes with tremendous responsibility, and excitement. I’d love to share this gift, and excitement, with you!
