Jenn + Mike

A few weeks back during a rare sunny day this June, I filmed Jenn & Mike's wedding in Wildwood. I hadn't been on the Wildwood boardwalk in years and was able to get some very nice shots, some of which I put on the Highlight Film and more will be on the long version.

Jenn and Mike live in Colorado now, but Mike grew up in Wildwood so it's a great homecoming for him. I'm glad I had the opportunity to capture it all, not to mention a few moments of a five hour long parade for the Elks lodge that happen to be going on right outside.

Nicole & Ryan

I had a fun time shooting Nicole & Ryan's wedding. Darah and Siobhan from Dollface where the photographers and we love it when we get to "work" together. Rain put a damper on some of the planned photography but I still got some great footage. Ad-libbing is the name of the game in this business and then editing a final product that is better than you can hope always helps.

Catherine + Steve

Catherine and Steve are neighbors and artists. We actually purchased some art from Steve for our house and got to know them as a couple after visiting their studio. Their wedding was a real act of love as friends and family pitched it to create it. I don't know if they used any vendors at all. It seems everyone they know is artistically talented from the food and dancing, to the music. At one point a hour long jam session formed and the whole bridal party played and being musicians they were amazing. Plus the whole wedding took place a couple of blocks from my home. I doubt that will happen again.

As they are a both spiritual and playful couple I utilized those attributes in their video. I am especially fond of the second portion of the video because I was able to use Tom Waits' version of I don't want to Grow Up. I aged the footage a bit and just had fun with it. I think it captures the emotions of the day pretty well.
