I absolutely love stories about real people. I believe weddings, birthdays, and community events are special times to be celebrated, shared, and experienced again and again. Film gives us a way to do that in a form no other media can deliver. Making beautiful films is fun, exciting, challenging, and always a new adventure. My very favorite thing to do is capture significant, treasured moments that will be enjoyed for years to come.
