This is What Love Looks Like

Here's some sunshine to brighten your day!! Oh how we adore Heidi ofAdore Me Photography and her beautiful kids . I shot this at Albion Basin with all the wildflowers on a perfect summer morning.


Family Time at Zions National Park :)

We love Zions and the best time to go is Veteran's Day. It's not only free to get into the park on Veterans Day, but the leaves are perfect for filming. Take a peek into my life :)

Rick and Andie's First Look Big Cottonwood Canyon

Here's a shout out to all my awesome clients who educate their family and friends on the value of a well produced wedding film. Andie's cousins, Rachel Parcell (www.pinkpeonies.com) and Emily Jackson (www.theivorylane.com) told Andie that the most important thing of the wedding was having me film her wedding :).

Andie wanted a winter look to her film and Shannon from http://www.shannonelizabethphoto.com/ scouted out the location up Big Cottonwood Canyon which turned out to be just perfect. When Andie told me her father is a pilot, I knew we had to pull out the drone and get some aerials which truly add a cinematic look to the film. However, the heart of the film is always the emotion between the bride and groom and I love how their film captures those emotions.

Grant & Emily's Temple Film - Portland Wedding Video

Today was perfect and this is the temple film/same day edit that we showed tonight at the reception. The Portland temple has always been one of my all time favorites. I remember seeing it the first time and it literally took my breath away. Add two amazing families, a great photographer to work alongside (Cindy from cindyrosephotography.com), a church hymn and one adorable couple (you know their kids are going to be the cutest!) and this is what you get.... a video you can show at church on Sunday to help the youth see the value of temple marriage. Love it!

Fortress of Love... Heidi + Mark

The Draper temple seems to be a constant wind tunnel, which actually is great for video. Motion picture film studios pay for huge fans to be brought in to create this kind of look, but today it was free thanks to Mother Nature :).

Heidi and Mark were great to hang out with. They are so comfortable with each other and just really cool people. I love it when couples have a sense of humor about life and don't stress over the little things. I think that is key in having a successful marriage, which I'm sure this two will have.

Heidi wanted to keep the temple film more on the spiritual side with "I Love to See the Temple" being their soundtrack for this same day edit. It is amazing how much effort, sacrifice and determination goes into being sealed in the temple. It's a choice of staying focused on what matters most and living in a way that is an expression of service to your spouse, your future children and really all those around you. I love how the Draper temple looks like a fortress and I guess it actually is. A place to step away from one's concerns and busy life, to meditate and catch your breath while focusing on the Savior, Jesus Christ.

Great work you two and thanks for letting me come along for a wonderful day at the Draper Temple.


30 Seconds at 2 AM

´╗┐Filming a wedding in one of California's oldest communities - San Luis Obispo. Our hotel sits on a cliff above the ocean, and the light reflecting off the incoming waves was so beautiful I had to capture some stills and a time lapse. I could listen to the ocean for hours - so powerful and so calming.

This shot took thirty seconds and a light to paint the rocks. Love how you can see endless stars in the sky.

Watch for the timelapse coming soon!
