As a documentary filmmaker, who also produces other media work for various clients, I bring a unique approach to documenting weddings. This is not the cheesy, over-stylized video with weak photography. It is a day to remember, and my responsibility is to document it in an honest way, bring everything back to life as it was, and not some impression of certain moments.

My work is an artful and honest documentation of your wedding day for all the drama and fun it really is. Editing is straightforward, but seems like there were cameras everywhere capturing all the right moments. I shoot and edit all my own work. Each wedding is approached uniquely and individually, unlike the ‘wedding video factories.” Call it 'couture video.'I use all the natural sounds during editing. I can easily create a finished product in any way you prefer, including a more stylized format, too.

At the wedding, I work quietly and as unobtrusively as possible. I steadily work hand-held with mobility, and with a minimum of artificial light. I am constantly looking for that which seems appropriate to capture on video and do it with an aesthetic sense of fine photography. Your own ideas about what you want are encouraged.

Your wedding is an unforgettable experience. This kind of documentation truly will be the best way to remember that day for many years to come.
