Why I Love Weddings & My Most Memorable Wedding Moment

I had never been to a wedding before the first one I was hired to film. It was a three hour drive up to North Jersey. When I arrived I was shaking from stress. Thinking of how important every shot I captured had to be perfect. This is the most important day of the couples life. My boss was not there at first, just the company photographer so I dived right into filming. As time grew closer the groom was standing at the end of isle. I said Hello and shook his hand. He was shaking worse than I was. Had drops of sweat on his forehead.

I stood center isle right and started rolling on bridal precession. When the burst of sunlight pierced the room and this beautiful woman with a halo around her came slowly down the aisle I swung my camera over to capture the groom’s face and he two tears coming down his cheek and a huge smile. A happiness I have never witnessed before. That moment stuck with me for eternity. I had love squabbles at the time and that second put my life in perspective. That first strike of love when you know “I can’t live without this person on my side forever, no matter what.” I have done over 300 weddings and time & time again seeing the bond of love it still makes me think clearer about my relationship. I get to see a husband watch his true love come down aisle, first kiss as married couple, the oldest married couples at wedding, and true love. They all have a way of helping me remember to love my wife; I can’t ask for a better job.

A Little About Me:

I went to Ocean County College and received a Degree in Digital Mass Media. I was hired to Ocean TV-20, a television studio on campus.  During my mentorship there I was the youngest person in Apple history to achieve an Apple’s Master Certification Training Certification for Final Cut Pro. I worked at Ocean TV-20 for five years during that time I started doing weddings. I am trained in cinematography and production.

I have been married for 2 1/2 years, have two dogs, and live locally. I am incredibly happy with the career path I chose. Video is a never ending adventure of new people.

My Videography Style:

I approach every wedding as if I where filing for discovery channel. The people in front of me are different species and I have to document everyone to figure them out. Documentary style filming always gives me the most footage to edit the video.

Other Interests:

Teaching Video editing & 3D motion graphics animation
