My style of shooting is quiet and meaningful. I like to stay on the outside of interactions to preserve the intimacy of the present moment yet thoughtfully moving to capture beautiful angles. I intend to let you and your guests feel natural while I search for candid laughter, tearful smiles, and inside jokes.
I think you'll quickly gather that my favorite part about your wedding day is the audio. Sound holds such resonance emotionally within our memories. I feel so fulfilled preserving the conviction of your vows, the timbre of your father's voice as he welcomes your guests, and the crack of emotion from your maid of honor's toast.
The music for your wedding film is a big deal. I love to find the perfect song that captures the feel of your wedding day. I want you to feel like your closest friend sat down and edited your film for you. I licence the music used in my films from themusicbed.com.

My signature Highlights Film features scenes from your entire wedding day. Artistically edited to span about 6 minutes, this film highlights the most emotional points of the day. Paired with cinematic music and personal audio, this piece is my favorite way to tell your love story. The Highlights Film includes professionally captured audio, 2 song licenses, 2 videographers, and 8 hours of coverage on the wedding day.
Soak into the experience of your wedding day with the same artistic style as the highlights film and enjoy the best moments of the day for 15-20 minutes. Get ready to have your mind blown in the best way. You will also receive a 30 second teaser of your Feature Film within 1 week of your wedding day. The Feature Film includes professionally captured audio, 6 song licenses, 2 videographers, and 10 hours of coverage on the wedding day.
This film is a chronological sequence of all the special moments. Enjoy your full wedding ceremony, toasts, and traditional dances from multiple camera angles. A tribute to the home video lovers out there and for those hoping for a RAW footage option.
Your wedding weekend extended in video. This is for those that would like toasts and other special moments captured outside of the wedding day. This includes 3 hours of coverage and 2 videographers. The footage is delivered either in a mini-documentary film and added to your Highlights Film or it is added to your Documentary Film if you choose that option.
To get the true feel of your wedding day, I like to give myself the freedom of 10 hours for the Feature Film Experience and 8 hours of coverage for the Highlights or Ceremony Experiences. As we discuss your wedding film, you let me know what is most important to you. Sparkler exit? Your maid-of-honor is a slam poet? CrossFit workout with your groomsmen? I’m ready for it all!
I have a rotation of a few trusted second shooters that I use to be sure all of the angles of covered. You can expect the same workmanship and demeanor from anyone that I bring as a part of the Alpine Tree Films team. It is very important for me to retain the integrity of your wedding day by leading my team in a fly-on-the-wall approach. You'll barely know we're there so you can focus on the present moment.
First, I’d love to meet you either over the phone or coffee. Creating art is an intimate venture, and I think it's important to have a conversation before you book. I’ll send you a proposed contract to sign electronically. The deposit to reserve your date is 50% of the contract total and you can pay by check. The final payment is due 1 month before your wedding date.
This is one of my favorite parts of the wedding day: working with your photographer. I consider myself and the photographer “Team Visual”, and I love being part of this team. Photographers are great directors. I let the photo team lead, and I capture along their side. I am looking for laughter, movement, and fun in-between-posing-moments, and I need to give a very little direction to capture the authentic moments of the day.
Sending you a hard drive with hundreds of disconnected files is just not practical. I can assure you that in my post-production process that I select the best-shot moments to create your films. This is why I create Documentary Film add-on so that you can have all the moments captured with multiple camera angles synced perfectly with stunning audio.
Within 2 weeks of your wedding, I will send you a 1 minute teaser so you have something to watch and share with family and friends. You can expect the rest of your wedding film(s) between 1-4 months after your wedding date.
I send you links via Vimeo and Dropbox that allow you to share with friends and family and download the file forever.
I want you to love your film. All revisions can be sent within the first two weeks that you receive your films.
