I am excited that you are here and are interested in me filming your wedding. First, I count it a real blessing to be able to film weddings. Second, I love to film them, and I love to be a part of the story of love. Yes… I did use love 3 times in that last sentence. It all started when my cousin asked me to film her wedding in 1998! Wow that was a long time ago. Ever since then I have really developed a passion for sharing great stories. So, this is me… I’m a camera nerd, I love coffee, and would LOVE be a part of your story!

Imagine it’s your wedding anniversary and you sit down with your spouse to relive your wedding day as an artsy, timeless, cinematic journey. Not only are you watching what looks like a featured film but the emotions and feeling are felt as well. That’s what happened to me. I thought why not give people a cinematic journey of one of the most wonderful days of their life?! So in 2007 I created the Wedding Day Film. It’s the perfect length to watch with your spouse, your friends, and maybe even your kids one day.
The Wedding Day Film
What is The Wedding Day Film (WDF)? The WDF is designed for couples looking for a more “artsy film look,” rather than a minute-by-minute documentary. A wedding film captures the most significant parts of the day in a montage or highlight of your wedding day. Filmed on high definition cameras with cinema style lenses, we film the entire day specifically for this Wedding Day Film. Shallow depth of field [learn more], film/movie style camera movement, and over cranking slow motion footage [learn more] are all carefully filmed and edited into your Wedding Day Film.
One camera film (check out [Jared + Alison] & [Ryan+Brittany] wedding) $3,000 for one camera and it includes editing for a wedding day film (ranging from 12-20+ minutes) to your provided music or to a film style soundtrack of our creative choosing. Also included is the full ceremony and toasts on DVD or Digital Download. Get a copy of your wedding film in HD (720p compressed to H.264) to watch on your computer or upload to your site of choice.
Two camera film (check out [Melanie+David] & [Kim + Eric] wedding) $5,000. Get more footage, multiple camera angle ceremony, a dedicated filmmaker for the bride and for the groom, and a longer wedding day film. Travel is extra. Every wedding is different so please contact me for a precise quote.
Short Film: Phoenix Friends, Family, or Young Life Locals. This is for those who have a smaller budget but still want a great wedding day film. Single camera for up to 6 hours includes a 10 minute Wedding Day Film available as a digital HD download. Please contact me and I can work with your budget.
