colorado adventure wedding photographer + videographer
Filmmaking has always been a hobby of mine. My 6th grade birthday party was just my friends getting together to make a movie(if you are wondering, we made a spoof off of The Twilight Zone).
This love and passion of the art of photography & filmmaking has grown and shifted and changed over time, but has always remained in some form or another.
My first step into wedding filmmaking was for a few friends back in 2o13. At the time I was majoring in Electronic Media Production at Middle Tennessee State University when they asked me if I would do it. I was set to graduate the same day as their wedding and decided to forgo attending my graduation to film their wedding. I think it worked out.
When it comes to Weddings, my filmmaking style is slightly different from when I Photograph them. This mainly being in part to having to work with other Vendors and photographers if I am solely filmmaking.
As a Wedding Videographer, I have more of a documentary and candid style. I focus on the moments, interactions, emotions, and overall story and edit them together in a way thats creative, emotional, and fun. While my tones are still dark and moody, the overall vibes of the films are typically ones of celebration, and love.

"And I knew in that moment, that I had detected my true signal, and everything else was just noise."
-a quote from the vows of Hayley to Jeffrey shared during their ceremony, and this statement was very evident for both
Hayley and Jeffrey were married at The Ramble Hotel in the River North Arts District of Denver, Colorado. The Ramble, and its accompany bar- Death & Co provided great urban vibes for the wedding. Both Hayley & Jeffrey got ready in some of the suites at hotel over looking the rainy but vibrant arts district of north Denver.
The ceremony(and late the reception) were held on the Garden patio of The Ramble.
The patio was decorated and draped with all sorts of beautiful greenery and florals.
After dinner back inside at Death and Co, everyone made their way back to the Garden to celebrate the night away with dancing! Congrats to Hayley and Jeffrey!!

Dorothy & Adam were married at The St. Vrain in Longmont, CO an absolutely beautiful converted car repair shop to wedding venue. Their wedding was on New Years Eve- an already special occasion that will now be forever marked by an even more special occasion in their lives. They scheduled their day accordingly too, knowing that they, and their guests would want to not just celebrate their new commitment in marriage but also bring in the New Year in style-and it was style! Their ceremony was sweet and perfect and their hand written vows to each other could not have a conveyed more of who they are as individuals and to each other. And the reception was non-stop fun all the way through the Saber-Champagne-opening ceremony right as the clock struck 2019! It was an honor to get to be a part of this day and night! Congrats to Dorothy & Adam!

Featured on Martha Steward Weddings: Melissa and Duncan have an incredible love story. They originally met across the pond where Melissa was in school and Duncan was playing rugby. Over a decade later they reunited and their love still remained. This wedding was the culmination of this incredible love story. Friends and family from across the world came upon The Manor House out in the foothills of Littleton, Co to bear witness and celebrate the love of Melissa and Duncan and it was one incredible day! From the heartfelt moments and laughter from the morning to the absolute celebration of the reception, Melissa and Duncan laughed, cried, and never stopped dancing the whole day. It was awesome and I was honored to get to capture it! Congrats to Melissa and Duncan!

Melissa and Casey were married at the recently renovated and opened St Vrain up in Longmont, Co. What used to be an old car repair shop has now morphed into a beautiful, elegant, and a rustic wedding venue. While their wedding was in early January the weather was very accommodating, and although there ended up being some "icing" it didn't have an affect on anyone there. Casey and Melissa had written each special letter to each other that tells who they are and who they are together. Their day was special. It was sweet. and it was a lot of fun. Check out all their moments in their film! Congrats to Melissa and Casey!
