Heidi & Nate’s Wedding Day Film

When I think back on Heidi and Nate’s wedding day, a couple of central themes came to mind. One of those themes was music. Heidi just so happens to be an amazing singer and performer (she sings for the jazz group Heidi Mikhail and the Justic League), so it was no surprise that the music that the couple chose throughout the day was some of the best wedding day music I’ve ever experienced. The breathtaking cover of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah” that I used in the film was performed just before the ceremony by a fiend of the couple, Matt Thornton from Arizona. The couple also booked an amazingly entertaining band named Project Chameleon to play at the reception. They kept the party going late into the night!

Another theme that comes to mind is Heidi’s Egyptian heritage. Many of the wedding guests traveled from around the world to witness Heidi and Nate’s beautiful wedding. From Heidi’s henna art to the belly dancers, camel-shaped cookies and Egyptian-themed cake at the reception, many unique details contributed to making their wedding day special.

Heidi and Nate, thanks so much for letting me film your wedding day.

Lastly, many thanks to my beautiful wife, ericamay, for being my “second shooter” for this event!


Gina & Sal’s Wedding Day Film

Gina and Sal’s wedding day was such a beautiful fall day full of family, friends, storytelling, and laughter. The ceremony was held at Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic Church close to downtown Kansas City, and their reception was in the Argosy Casino ballroom — and fun was had by all! Their family told their story much better than I ever could, so I decided to focus the storyline on the hilarious and touching toasts given by those closest to Gina and Sal.

Thanks to my beautiful Erica (of ericamay photography) for help filming the big day.

Gina and Sal, thanks so much for letting Erica and I be a part of your wedding day!

I hope you Enjoy!

Emily & Jerrod’s Joplin, MO Wedding

I’ve known Emily for more than a decade. She has always been one of the sweetest people I’ve known, so it’s not surprising that she ended up with an incredibly nice and caring guy like Jerrod. They booked my lovely wife (ericamay photography) for their photographer and then (luckily for me) invited me along for videography!

Their ceremony was at my home church, Forest Park Baptist, and their reception was at the beautiful Ramsey event space in downtown Joplin. All of the details of their wedding matched their personalities perfectly! You can tell by viewing the footage how much Emily and Jerrod love each other, and also how much they mean to their friends and families.

Emily and Jerrod, I had so much fun filming your wedding and I wish you both the best!


Anne & Sam’s Lawrence, KS Wedding

Anne and Sam are one of those couples who just exuded happiness their entire wedding day. I think that the toast that Sam’s brother gives about 35 seconds into the video perfectly summarizes Anne and Sam’s love for eachother — so much so that they’ve been caught eating with one hand so that they wouldn’t have to let the other’s hand go… in my opinion, that’s true love :) I feel blessed to have been able to document their wedding day and get to learn about who they are as a couple.

I met Sam and the guys at a disc golf course in Lawrence in the morning and then moved on to Anne’s family’s house several hours before the wedding in order to film the girls’ preparations. Their reception was at the beautiful Abe & Jakes Landing and I had the pleasure of shooting along side Chris Hsieh of La Brisa Photography.
