Why I Film Weddings

I would say the most popular question I receive when I meet with a potential client for the first time at our studio (aside from, "how much is it going to cost me". . . LOL) is, "What made you want to film weddings?"

Well the truth is, like so many of us out there, sometimes our careers find us and. . .poof. . . . there you have it. . . .  In my case, wedding cinematography first crossed paths with me back in college. Given an opportunity to film a wedding for some friends, I thought it was harmless enough. Well, 7 years later, here we are, making the absolute most out of this amazing opportunity we have to share in the most important day of a newly formed couples' life.

I truly believe what we create is one of the most unique and cherished keepsakes a family could possess. It is that reason that fuels my desire to push our boundaries and make each wedding film even greater and more unique than the last. Knowing that our company has the ability to encapsulate the emotion of a wedding day into a film that I KNOW will be loved is perhaps the most rewarding part of the job.

I opened my mail last night and found this letter addressed to Weddings by SML. While we receive thank you's all the time via email from parents and newlyweds alike, this one stood out to me. I can't tell you how rewarded I feel to have received such a heartfelt card. 


Here is the card. . .
