Meagan + Colin

My first wedding was filmed in DC but since then I haven't been down there to visit or film. So now that the Downbeach headquarters has moved south the Washington area is more assessable I'm looking forward to lots more shoots there. Although, I can't imagine too many couples being more welcoming than Meagan and Colin. When Meagan emailed me to let me know that her song she wanted for the highlight video was from the Icelandic band - Sigur Ros I knew it was going to be a good time. I love Sigur Ros and you will too.

Lindsay + Michael

Lindsay and Michael are maybe the most creative couple I've filmed. They met working on TV and Michael is the artist for a recently launched comic - Feeding Ground. Knowing his love of comics and the theme of his project, I used the Aunt Betty speech for the voice over and The Black Key's - Howin' for You. Enjoy!

Alisa + Brian Part II

With 16 weddings in the last 2 and a half months I haven't had the the time to update blogs but that changes today.

Here is part two of Alisa and Brian's highlight. Turns out I went to college with Alisa and I only realized it through shared friends on facebook. Funny how that works. Her new husband, Brian, was a professional poker player at one point so I went with that and used Ben Lee's Gamble Everything for Love. I always liked the song but it worked for one of my short's - until now.

Again, filmed at Laurita Winery here is Part II.
