I got started doing wedding videos and other custom gigs by accident. I did my first video for a project in college in 2002 and I loved the idea of being able to edit my own videos. I shot a film with a friend of mine that same year… it was an alien movie. It looks kind of lame but we loved it. It was a pretty good first film.
I showed a friend of mine my alien movie and he asked me to do his wedding. I had no idea how to go about shooting a wedding but I said yes. I had only one small handheld camcorder that was given to me but I must have done a good job because the photographer at his wedding saw the video and hired me.
I worked for a few years with Moments into Memories based in Columbus, OH. I was able to get more weddings and could afford to invest in some really good equipment.
I no longer work with Moments into Memories and I just do my own work now. I just had work based on word of mouth. I have done close to 200 weddings and have done well over 400 hundred videos.
I will tell you that I do not have any sort of film degree nor did I take any classes. I have done my own research (reading video magazines, watching countless tutorial videos by video experts) and I learn by watching other expert videos. I’m a visual learner and I am always improving. Take a look at some of the sample work I’ve done and you can decide (I’ve done weddings, individual sports highlights, slideshows, a memorial video for a funeral, promo videos, vacation videos, and other highlight videos).
I always do my best to give you quality video & something that you will want to watch again. I shoot with a Sony FS100, Canon T3i, GO PRO, Sony FX-1, Canon XH-A1, & Panasonic AG-HMC40 camcorder & have a Sennheiser wireless mic. I own a jib, a glidecam, and a slider which give my videos amazing quality!
I have done plenty of other video work so if you would like to see a sample of something that I don’t have posted, just let me know. I will gladly show you a sample of anything I’ve done. If you’re not sure if I have done something, just ask… odds are I probably have something to show you.
Thank you for taking a look at this site and if you have any questions let me know and I will do what I can to accommodate you.
