Quality: As the Southeast's premier wedding videographer, I have perfect reviews on The Knot, Wedding WireGoogle, and Facebook. I am on The Knot's "Best of Weddings" and Wedding Wire's "Couple's Choice Award" lists.


Experience: I have filmed weddings exclusively for the last 7 years, and in 2022 I did more than 60. I film every wedding myself without relying on apprentices or trainees. I just don't trust anyone else to offer the same attention to detail.

Efficiency: I want you to relive your wedding day as soon as possible. I create a 1-minute Instagram reel within 24 hours of your wedding so you can share it right away. Then I deliver your highlight and documentary films within 30 days.

Style: I am calm, easy going, and unobtrusive as I work tirelessly to capture every important moment of your wedding. I interface seamlessly with you, your guests, and your other vendors so you can relax and enjoy your day.

Value: I want you to have it all without compromising or paying extra for anything. My all-inclusive package comes with up to 10 hours of coverage, four camera angles, three film edits, aerial shots, live streaming, and raw footage.

My goal is to capture your wedding as it naturally, organically unfolds. To tell the entire story of your day, I prefer to arrive midway through bride preparations and stay through your exit from the reception.


While posed photographs look great, I find the best film shots are candid. I work beside your photographer, but I typically do very little directing because I want you to enjoy the organic flow of your day.


I shoot most of my weddings solo by operating one camera myself and using small tripods to place additional cameras around the ceremony and reception. I work around the fringes of the venue, staying at the back and the sides.

Q & A

What parts of the wedding day do you capture?

  • Before the ceremony, I film details (rings, jewelry, shoes), bride prep (hair, makeup, dress), groom prep (jackets, ties, boutonnieres), and special moments (letter readings, gift exchanges, first looks).

  • During the ceremony, I film everything from multiple angles around the venue. I record sound from every camera, the soundboard, and lapel microphones hidden on the groom and officiant.

  • After the ceremony, I film the highlights of the reception, including the party introductions, toasts and speeches, first dances, place settings, food, cake cutting, flower and garter tosses, dance floor, and send off.


What types of films do you create?

  • The instant film (1 minute) includes quick shots of the most memorable moments, edited into a wedding trailer, which is perfect for posting on social media.

  • The highlight film (6-8 minutes) includes all of the most memorable moments of your wedding day set to your choice of two songs.

  • The documentary film (30-60 minutes) includes the complete ceremony, first dances, and speeches.

How many hours of coverage time do I need?

  • As you develop the timeline of your day, you will get a feel for how many hours make sense for you. I prefer to arrive in the middle of preparations so I can capture shots of your details, dress, hair, and makeup. I always film the entire ceremony, and I usually stay through the reception so I can film all of the important moments, such as the introductions, first dances, toasts, cake cutting, and exit.

Do you work well with photographers and guests?

  • Yes, my style is very unobtrusive. I capture all of your special moments while respecting everyone's space.


Do you charge a travel fee?

  • Travel is included to all destinations within North and South Carolina, Georgia, and Virginia. Contact me for a custom quote for other destinations.

What forms of payment do you accept?

  • I accept checks and electronic payments through Venmo and Zelle.

When is payment due?

  • A 50% deposit is due with your signed agreement to reserve your date. The balance is due by your wedding.


Do you offer any discounts?

  • Yes, I offer a $100 discount to members of the military, teachers, and first responders. Thank you for your service.
