why we do it

i'll give my top 3 reasons (some of these may be the same for brad):

1. i love telling stories with moving pictures.  i love the process and love the results.
2. i love relationships.  people that know me know that i am relationally driven.  watching people commit their lives to each other is cool.  getting to know those people is even cooler.
3. i feel like us being there enhances people's wedding day.  some photographers/video guys are like "you won't even know we're there."  i'm like, "you'll be glad to know we're there!"  what we do adds an element to people's wedding experience that is generally pleasantly unexpected.

5 years ago I could never have imagined being a wedding professional.  As a professional singer/guitar player I was getting downright tired of being asked to come perform at weddings.  Why did that change?  Well a number of things. One big thing is that I myself fell in love and became engaged.  It's not that I'm a sappy wedding guy now, it's just that I appreciate more the significance of the day.  Another reason is the built-in emotion and passion in a wedding day. Come on, you've got two families essentially each having a reunion, friends meeting up for a party, a reason to dress up and a happy occasion to celebrate.  Weddings are filled with so much joy. It has become my pleasure to use my abilities to make the day more memorable.  I run into couples every once in while whose weddings I have sung at or filmed.  I love the fact that they are so thankful and appreciative for the part that I played.  

The fact is that some wedding creative professionals just phone it in.  Let's face it we all know that there are some vendors that prey on wedding couples because of bloated pricing for wedding services.  The reason that I love doing wedding cinematography is to offer our special couples a next level quality product.  A product that is hip, modern and relevant.  Most of all, a product that they and we can be proud to show friends and family.
