With some weddings, I can tell that every single detail has been careful planned out to ensure the day is perfect; and this wedding was nothing short of perfection, guests were happy, we had time for both photo & video, there was even dancing and fireworks(if you consider sparklers a work of fire)! It started off as a beautiful brisk sunny day in Phoenix where Karen was taken from the Westin to the ceremony at St. Francis Parish in a Porsche, followed by Mariachi Pasion serenading everyone into the Phoenix Art museum. Guests enjoyed a free cartoon artist during cocktail
There’s always a little extra excitement when it comes to the first wedding of the season, and even more so when it’s your 100th wedding ever filmed. The day started off at Liz’s childhood home and proceeded with a photo/video shoot at Seward park. Although we did not get the clear skies we had hoped for, Liz and Sam made the best of the situation which made for the most heartwarming intro of all time! After leaving the park early we were graciously hosted by Westland Distillery at the last minute to capture our directed scenes next door
Some weddings are full of surprises and this one was not stop action. From the preparation process the day started off on a high note with all the groomsmen getting a fresh pair of Jordan’s. After Carlos had some new Nike’s hand delivered I was surprised to hear Andrea request to hang her dress on the barn doors, but up for the challenge as I thought it was a brilliant idea as long as I could keep it from falling. After carefully returning the dress the day continued on with a very personal ceremony and reception as Andrea
Almost three years ago Vianey caught the garter at a wedding I was filming and one year ago she married David. Their wedding started off at a beautiful home outside the city and proceeded to the venue where the ceremony and reception were held. The romantic photo/video session went past sunset as guests were serenaded by a live mariachi band that continued into the night. I had a great time filming the dances, speeches, cake cutting, and sparkler exit. Thank you for choosing me to be your wedding videographer.
The wedding team!

I had the pleasure of filming Marc and Gwen’s wedding at the Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale, Arizona. It feels like yesterday that I met with the happy couple to see if we were a good fit. After hearing about their engagement consisting of an orchestra and an airplane hangar party, I knew this couple’s wedding day would be epic. As they got ready at the Hotel Valley Ho in Scottsdale, I was welcomed by their friends and family as they helped me to get all the shots I needed. There was such elegance in all the details
One year from today I had the honor of shooting Lauren and Spencer’s wedding at the Omni Resort Montelucia in Scottsdale, Arizona. I had met Lauren and Spencer in Mexico at their friend’s destination wedding. After seeing my work, they told me that night to reserve their date and six months later I was pulling in to the Omni Resort to greet Lauren at the Camelback Villa Presidential Suite! The venue was elegant and spacious, so spacious that Lauren was able to surprise Spencer with a priceless two wheeler! As the two met up for their first look,
This past week I had the privilege of meeting Marisa and Matthew LaRocca, and filming their wedding at the Foundry in Sodo. From the time we met and they told me their hashtag was “Livin La Vida LaRocca”, I knew their wedding would be full of laughter and fun. The day started off with some rain for good luck as the two prepared for the day. I pulled into The Foundry and was impressed by the features inside. The Foundry had a clean white room that made for some excellent shots during their getting ready process. The bridal
Last Fourth of July I had the pleasure of filming this beautiful wedding in Guemes island! After meeting with Erik & Kelsey several months prior to the wedding, my excitement grew as I got off the ferry and approached the magnificent venue that is the Guemes Island Resort. I was pleased to shoot with photographers Luke and Mallory as we worked together with such an energetic and unique bridal party. After a hilarious shoot with the bridal party, the ceremony and reception were both beautifully unconventional and substantially moving. There is something about a destination wedding that allows
