Wedding Wednesday: Jake and Kelly

This is a new series I'm starting called "Wedding Wednesdays" where each month, I'll feature a different wedding that I've filmed. First up is Jake and Kelly.


I shot their wedding last year in Yorktown, VA. They had a beautiful rustic waterside wedding!

72 Hours in Philadelphia

This summer, I had the opportunity to spend a few days in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania with my family.

We mainly went just to spend some time together, but I also wanted to take the opportunity to take some photos and video just for fun.

Here are a few of them. Enjoy!


My Rode Reel

For the past few years, I've said to myself that I wanted to participate in the My Rode Reel contest. This year, at the last minute, I decided to put together a short project to enter into the contest.

Since the beginning of the year, I have been learning a lot about interview lighting, and wanted to put some of those skills to the test. My sister-in-law had just gotten back from a 3-week-long trip to Chicago, and I decided to interview her about her experience.

Check it out and tell me what you think!

Why can't I use the song I picked for my wedding film?

You spend hours picking out the perfect music for your wedding. Songs that perfectly represent how you and your significant other feel about each other. Unfortunately, many popular wedding songs can't be used in your wedding film.

Here's why.

Travel Vlog #1: "ATL Shawty!"

The is footage from my wife and I's trip to Georgia in November 2015. On the way down, we decided that it would be cool to make a travel vlog.

We didn't have any mics or lighting with us, but we used what we had and it was a lot of fun! We will definitely be doing it again soon, so stay tuned!
