“Ken, I should have put you on FaceTime while I watched the wedding video, because then you could see the overwhelming joy on my face! The video is PERFECT!!! It captures the day, our emotions, the happiness, and fun of the day. Great angles, great editing, everything! I’m beyond happy with it all!” – Erin
What did you want to be when you grew up? Me? I thought I’d be a musician or at least something creative.
As life occurred, that dream often gave way to “reality” and “responsibilities”. Today I’m lucky. While it took a while longer than I planned, I’ve found a way to be creative while documenting something that is REALLY important to families for generations. Their Love Story.
I love the idea of a love story. The messy parts, the romantic parts, the practical moments, the surprises, and even the mundane. So, let’s talk about your love story. About how we can use your wedding day as the focal point of uncovering and capturing the essence of your story in a way that both honors who you are, and provides a bridge for future generations to cherish.
To me, there’s no greater honor than providing that for you.
Destination Wedding Videos…
OK… I love to film multi-day destination weddings… and, living in Sonoma County, I’m fortunate that many couples choose to travel to the Napa / Sonoma Wine Country for their dream wedding!
So, whether your planning a 2 person elopement or a party of 100’s… Spending multiple days together lets us uncover non traditional moments and share ideas to create a truly magical film just for YOU. These films are usually more specific to you, your story, and the destination and not always a traditional wedding film. Yes, we still do full ceremony and toast edits, but your film may feel a little more unique.
I love creating for couples that want to be involved in the process and let their guard down for a few days…
Here is a sample of a recent 3 day, elopement weekend in the Napa Valley. Enjoy!
Couples say it the best!
I was nervous that our location was too far to travel (Edgewood, Lake Tahoe) but luckily for us, Ken travels for destination weddings. We ended up hiring Ken for our entire wedding weekend and it was the best decision we ever made. He not only captured the wedding day, but also the rehearsal dinner, lead-up AND set up a video guestbook during our wedding (this is a MUST). Having ALL of those memories (not just the wedding day) to relive in a video is priceless! Ken & his crew made the wedding day totally stress-free. They worked so fantastically well with how I had planned the day and the ease of communication with my photographer was unbelievable. Ken had some amazing ideas for shots & we were so happy he was directing because with so much going on you need to have someone with an eye & vision.
When we received the final product, we were speechless. The way Ken captured the weekend and told our story was nothing short of amazing. The beauty of our film brings everyone to tears! And when we watched our video guestbook, we couldn't stop laughing! We absolutely loved the entire process and can certainly say choosing Ken was the best decision we made!
Ken did a lovely job with our wedding video and was a pleasure to work with! He captured the day beautifully and delivered videos that we will cherish forever! He caught some great moments throughout the day and did a wonderful job of making sure our summary video included a little snippet of nearly all of our guests who attended. We will enjoy having this video to watch for years in the future!
He was always very responsive throughout the planning process and during the post wedding editing phase. I enjoyed working with him and would definitely recommend him for weddings in the future or for other video services!
My husband and I are so happy how our video turned out. Ken knew exactly what we wanted and was professional and friendly every step of the way. He captured every moment and put everything together beautifully!
We watch our video all the time and so happy we decided to make this investment!
“I simply cannot say enough about the wonderful job that Ken did for our wedding. He went above and beyond what I thought I was going to get with the video. He was always professional, on time and listened to what we were looking for. He was one of the first people there and one of the last to leave, ensuring that he caught all of the most special moments. I will treasure the video forever. The decision to go with him is really a no brainer.”
Don't just get the photographer, make sure to add on a videographer for your event!! YOU WILL BE SO THANKFUL YOU DID THIS. Photos are awesome and you will keep forever, but video allows so much more to the recollection of your day and helps to bring back all of those incredible feelings you experienced in each moment. If I could give Ken a 10 I would, but the recommendation only goes to 5 😉
I really think a videographer is one of those things you may regret not doing, and Ken is amazing at what he does. We got the finished video a lot faster than I expected and I am able to send it to all my loved ones that could not afford the trip. It's really meaningful to be able to share that day with them. If you have relatives that can't make it, maybe grandparents who are bed ridden, consider a videographer so that you can share the day with them. Ken is very professional, knows what he is doing, and is one of the nicest vendors out there. You'll be happy you booked him!
WEDDING VIDEO INVESTMENT
I understand that planning a wedding can be an overwhelming yet exciting task and I’m committed to making this as easy and as transparent as possible…
So, let’s start with how much? That is often one of the first questions we get asked. Well, our video packages start at $3,600 and we can even add a photographer if you’d like us to manage that as well.

True Love ~
“We’re all a little weird. And Life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness – and call it love – true love.”
~ Robert Fulghum
