I've always loved weddings. When people ask me why I chose to start a wedding videography business, my answer is simple, because I love sharing my creative gifts with others and being there to see two people start their lives together.
It all began in 2006. I remember being in high school and registering to be a library aide simply because our librarian subscribed to great wedding magazines. (Also, I was the president of the Carpe Libras- where my best friend and I would eat Panera Bread cinnamon crunch bagels and talk about our favorite books...) I would sit in the quiet library the entire period, scouring the magazines' pages. I'd plan different weddings, based off of the season. "Just insert groom here," I'd say. But that was just the dreams and fantasies of a young girl. At that time all I saw was the decor and color schemes, the dress and the entertainment. I didn't understand the covenant that is made with those words, "to have and to hold, until death do us part."
What I learned is that a wedding is more than a pretty picture, it's a sacred, visual and physical beginning of a promise you make to your person, and to God.
So our wedding day was just that. I wanted it to be entirely focused on our families, and starting a new family. And it was. It was perfect. And I'm now still able to relive every moment of that day when I look back at our pictures and watch our wedding video. So why do I do this? Well, here's why:
