creating emotive films for the wildly in love.
"I enjoy capturing all of those little details from your wedding day that have the biggest impact. Capturing those unscripted moments of love, adventure, and laughter are truly important to me. I am passionate about life and documenting it to provide you with the opportunity to relive those moments all over again."
WHAT I AM ABOUT
When you hire me as your videographer you are getting a human being that is inspired by your story, and inspired to tell it. Someone who is honored to capture life's most special moments for lifetimes to come. Someone who will shed tears while editing your films. God had given me this gift of constantly being inspired by people's stories and the desire to tell them through film.
This quote spoken at my sister's wedding has always stuck with me:
"What will you do with the gift that God has given you? Your gift will be what you give back."
I love this saying and all it encompasses, because as a videographer you give people one of the best gifts they can have to look back on. Sometimes these films are all the memories they have left of someone, and that right there is giving back.
Videography is so much more than just a service. So many emotions, storytelling, and creativity goes into each film and I won't settle until its absolutely perfect.
I know that your wedding is one of the most important days of your lives. I love to HEAR your story behind it ALL and bring it to life through filmmaking. Your memories are IMPORTANT and worth remembering, and it is my PASSION to capture all these meaningful moments in life.
BEHIND THE LENS
" I am a Pennsylvania wedding/elopement and lifestyle filmmaker + Airbnb content creator/Travel Videographer.
I'm always up for an adventure, and willing to wander, so let's go somewhere fun and meaningful to you! I love capturing new beginnings, love, laughter and life, as these moments make up the heart of my filmmaking and storytelling. "
I also love capturing and photographing Airbnb properties for Airbnb hosts to achieve consistent bookings. I'd love to chat and showcase your Airbnb property in a unique way!
It's my passion to capture everything meaningful to you, during the most important moments in your life.
I got married to my middle school sweetheart in 2018, after 10 years of dating. We have a mini golden doodle named Ranger, and he's our whole world. When I don’t have a camera in my hand, I am working as an Ultrasound Technologist, enjoying the outdoors, fishing, decorating my house, DIY-ing, spending time with friends and family, cuddling with my dog, crafting, or planning our next fun adventure.
HOW I GOT STARTED
Ever since I can remember, my parents always had a videocamera in their hands recording our families precious childhood memories. When I got older, I found all of our old home videos and sat down and watched them one day. They brought back such joyous memories and made me feel like I still had a piece of my childhood with me! I had a greater appreciation for their love for filming, and it left me and my family with amazing memories of my childhood that I was able to look back on , and allowed me to relive those moments that I so easily forgot as a child. I still find myself randomly watching our home videos and reminiscing on those memories, and how lucky I am to have them captured on film.
I found my true passion for filmmaking when I was about 19 years old. I bought my first go pro and started filming and documenting my milestones, relationship, and fun travels/adventures with my husband. These moments turned into previous memories, and I found it so sentimental to have these films to look back on and remember all the details and emotions. This is what truly started my passion for filmmaking, and it has now turned into a lifelong passion, that I now get to share with others all around the world!

If you've watched any of my films yet, you will see my films have a specific style and artistic direction that focuses on authentic, fun-loving and adventurous weddings/couples. My films are geared towards couples that desire an artistic film catered to each couple, as opposed to a traditional style film. I deeply enjoy creating films that include all of the big & small details of your day and create a film that brings back all the incredible moments you felt on your wedding day.
Be sure to watch my films on my website, Facebook, Instagram, or Youtube and let me know the ones you love and why! It will go a long way to ensure I get an idea of what you want in your wedding film.
If you've watched some of my films and know I will be the perfect fit to tell your story, then first off I feel so honored!
Next up, let's get your date reserved now before it's too late! The earlier you book, the better. Popular weekend dates fill up fast, and I only take on a small number of
weddings each year, to ensure I can focus on crafting high quality films for each of my couples. Once my limited number of weddings are booked, I close my booking calendar for that year. So don't miss out!
To get your wedding date reserved on my
calendar, I require a 30% non-refundable retainer fee and a signed contract.
After your wedding day is over, I start the fun part, editing your films and telling your love story! I know how exciting and hard it will be to wait for your film to be completed, but crafting your wedding film takes a lot of time and creativity and isn’t something that I will ever rush. You can expect to get your final film back in 1-3 months or sooner. If I am behind on editing, you will be notified prior, but I really try my best to stay on track to get your films finished on time or earlier.
I know that your wedding is one of the most important days of your lives. I truly can't wait to uncover your love story and bring it to life through a film you will cherish for many years to come. The moments in your life are incredibly precious and valuable. I can't wait to capture all off these meaningful moments in life that you will cherish forever.
