I'm always asking myself, when the cameras, gear and editing styles change from year to year, what makes a wedding video great? What keeps it from looking cheesy and outdated in just a couple of years? What keeps it standing the test of time?
For myself, I think I have it answered. I very intentionally try to keep my edits as personal and down to earth as possible. I'm not really a huge fan of overly fancy camera tricks or camera moves, needless transitions, color filters, slow motion, and fast motion, time lapses, etc. I feel that most of the time, those kinds of shots tend to be more about the videographer than they are about the couple. I try to make sure we make the videos about the two of you, and not about how glamorous we can make you look (you're gonna look glamorous no matter what). It's about capturing who you both are, your unique relationship with each other, and your relationships with your friends and family. When I focus on those things, the videos tend to be more authentic, more personalized, and hopefully, more meaningful to you. It's not about having a better wedding video than everyone else's, it's about having the best wedding video for yourselves. I hope I can help you achieve that.
Okay, okay, enough rambling.

I'll be listing below select weddings we've shot over the years with a note about what made their wedding video unique. Again, the answer is always the couple.
Part 1 - The Proposal
Part 2 - The Wedding
Jerry and Jackie
This was super fun to do. Jerry had me capture his proposal to his girlfriend of 8 years, Jackie, in downtown San Francisco during the holidays. I got to shoot in street clothes covert-ops style. Then about a year later, we filmed the actual wedding day.
Hi! Welcome to my wedding videography page. Rates start at $2600. Please contact me for further details. Thanks!
Easily the best speech we've ever filmed. I know it's long, but it's worth it.
Lex and Jupela
Three awesome videos from Lex and Jupela's wedding
Their Highlight Video
Shanna and Tyler
Wedding DJ's get married too.
The GoPro Fireball Video!
Kim and Amir
We ended this video in a way that reflected where they met; which ended up being a super cool, nightlife feel.
Parker and Kim
A couple of super fun goofballs. This one starts and ends with two versions of the proposal story.
John and Lauren
These two had all the right pieces for a near-perfect wedding.
Chris and Lucy
Chris really wanted to say something on camera before the ceremony.
Tyler and Ashley
The gift he got her I thought was really sweet.
Michael and Sara
So, while I was editing this, Michael's mother had passed away. They asked me if I could make some sort of commemoration in the wedding video. Of course, I obliged. I wanted to pay respects to his mother while not letting the sadness of it overtake their wedding video. You can skip to 8:48 to see how I tried to balance it all.
Nick and Bronwen
I kinda just liked everything about this super San Franciscan wedding. Good music and a very sweet couple.
Adam and Courtney
I just thought Adam's Getting Ready was hilarious and his words to Courtney right before she appeared in the aisle were just as sweet.
Matt and Nicole
I'm really only asking folks to watch the first minute as this is a pretty old video, but I just wanted to show we highlighted her father walking her down the aisle.
