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.

Judson and Diana's First Look Salt Lake Temple

Last year I took my family on a LDS church history tour. While touring the Peter Whitmer Home near Palmyra, NY I met two sister missionaries. I had just filmed in the Sacred Grove the door before and showed them that clip on my iPhone and they started following my work.
Fast forward 11 months and I'm filming Sister Johnson's wedding! Even more interesting is that Judson (Elder Stoddard) was a missionary in the same mission at the same time. It's really amazing how when we follow God, He leads us to wonderful places :).

Tim and Grace's First Look Salt Lake Temple

OK, these two are just the most adorable couple. I want to just hug them! I love this video because it is full of love and light. (That's my family motto, "Love and Light")

If I ever feel a little down or overwhelmed I come and watch my videos on my blog and it makes me instantly happy to see couples like Tim and Grace full of joy and happiness. Life isn't easy and it's definitely not a bed of roses, but there are moments like this that make it all worth it!

My goal is to capture those moments so we can focus on these good times and be reminded that there is a Father in Heaven who loves us and we will feel this way (x's one million) when we are in His presence :).

DJ & Haley's Same Day Edit Salt Lake Temple

Smiles all around and good times at the Salt Lake Temple. I just love DJ and Haley!!
You might have seen DJ's sister's video I did (Jacki Miller - (http://vimeo.com/37293718) and so you know that this family is fun! So lucky to have the world famous Abbey Kyhl from http://akstudiodesign.com/ to hang with at the wedding. You really should follow her work!
Received a very kind email from Haley, " I just have to let you know, we absolutely loved working with you! You were just so down to earth and fun and easy to be with, so thank you for the awesome experience."
I love that she mentioned the word "experience" because my ultimate goal is not to capture the perfect image, but to ensure that you absolutely enjoy your wedding day. If that happens, I will get great shots and everybody's happy :)

McKale & Kurt's Pre Wedding Shoot + Same Day Edit

 

McKale & Kurt have this incredible light coming from them that it's just a pleasure to hang out with them. They are so positive and grateful for everything and everyone in their lives that it inspires me to be a better person. Today was so much fun, especially since Kristina Curtis from www.kristinacurtisphotography.com was there for the fun. She's just so great to have around the wedding day - super nice and also talented.

I am full of gratitude that I have been so blessed to capture one of the most important days in a bride and groom's life and I get to hang out with positive and happy people. I just eat it up :)

Chris & Steph's Pre Wedding Shoot

Chris and Steph have a really soft love that is perfectly surrounded with blossoms. This is the kind of video I love doing - very subtle yet powerful. It's all the little things that matter and a video shows the small smiles, tender hugs and little nuances that nothing else can share. These are the kinds of moments that you can't explain to your future children and they really need to see it to experience it... and they will :)

Kaitlyn + Justin's Teaser // Oquirrh Mountain Temple

Kaitlyn + Justin // Teaser from David Perry on Vimeo.

Some of the craziest wind is at the Oquirrh Mountain Temple in South Jordan (The city was originally named "Gale"). Take a look at Kaitlyn and Justin's Teaser to see why I absolutely love filming in the wind. I'm always looking for motion and movement and this is one of the biggest differences from photography.

Jordan & Kevin's First Look // Salt Lake Temple



People ask me if I get burned out shooting weddings for the past 13 years.

It's just the opposite. That's what has kept me young.
How can you get tired of seeing the look on a couples face when they see each other for the first time in their wedding attire? It reaffirms that there is still hope, love and goodness in this crazy world of ours.

Bring it!
