Photos & Film
THAT PULL YOU IN

We remember what it was like to first fall in love.
Marriage is a once in a lifetime event.
You want this moment in your life to be full of exceptional storytelling and not full of regrets over staying surface level.

We are experts at artistically crafting stories that pull you in. Creating imagery of authentic moments that transport the audience (your friends and family) right into the center of your relationship.
That overwhelming feeling you two feel right now... you want them to feel it too – through photos and film that pull you in.

Everyone Needs a Mentor

THE BEST WAY TO GROW

No matter what profession, or calling, everyone needs someone to seek guidance from, bounce ideas off of, and learn some new ideas from. My most influential points in life occurred when I was inspired by someone close and they took the time to personal invest into my future.

MY FOCUS IS ON YOUR GROWTH

I want your mentorship experience to be honest, personal, and to be completely tailored to what you need for your business to take-off.

WHO THIS IS FOR?

If you're inspired by the work we create, then this is for you. Doesn't matter if you're a photographer looking to add videography to your business, or if you've been filming for years.

For over 10 years I’ve filmed everything from weddings, elopements, styled shoots, documentaries, commercials, corporate events, even a bunch of those cheesy infomercials you see at 2am.. haha for real. Each situation has taught me something new about myself and a new way to film.

What you will learn

FILMING WITH YOUR HEART

The most important thing I could show you about filming, is how to film with your heart. It’s not gear, it’s not tricks, transitions, or RAW files… it’s your heart and learning how to let it speak through your camera.

CUSTOMIZED EXPERIENCE

You get the chance to choose what you want to learn. We can cover anything from editing, LUTs, gear, lenses, posing couples, marketing, design, modifying light, contracts, etc…

STEP 01

COFFEE MEETUP

The first step of my process is to know what you want. Not just what you want to improve on, but what inspires you, what are your goals. I will find a unique way to tailor the experience based on what we discuss from this first hangout.

IF YOU ARE NOT LOCAL TO SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA, THIS STEP CAN BE DONE VIA FACETIME

STEP 02

GO OUT AND SHOOT

We will do a live, styled shoot that I organize with a real couple, models, florist, etc. (All dependent on what type of filming you're interested in/want to learn more about.)

The best way to learn is to put ideas to the test, see what works in real world situations. You'll get to see how I would direct the scene, you'll have opportunities to do the same. We'll talk about the light, the mood, what inspires you, how do you visualize the edit in your head even as we're shooting. I'm an open book and I'll hold back nothing from you, whatever questions you have I'll do my best to honestly answer with intention.

THIS STEP MUST BE IN PERSON IN SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA

Laguna Beach Engagement Styled shoot

STEP 03

EDIT

After the shoot, we'll go out to lunch/dinner and talk about the shoot, we'll look at both our footage, and start editing your footage together.

THIS STEP TAKES PLACE THE SAME DAY AS THE SHOOT

STEP 04

FOLLOW UP

A week or more later, once you feel good about the edit you've created we'll have a call to review how everything went as a whole. We'll go over my thoughts on what's great about your edit and how I might suggest you push the edit further.

Can't wait to get started!
