One of my joys in  filming someone’s wedding is getting to know the couple throughout their wedding planning process.  I enjoy getting to know new people and I feel that the more invested you are to a couple, the better their wedding film will be.  For Courtney and Alan, I didn’t get that process but there is a reason for that.  First off, Alan called me about two weeks before the wedding and I’m happy that I was free for his wedding.  It was a blast to film their day and one of the lasting memories I will remember from their wedding was at their rehearsal mass.

Towards the end of  mass, Alan walks over and introduces me to Courtney.  She had no idea who I was and Alan then tells her that I’m the videographer and her reaction was priceless.  She was stunned and thrilled to have her day filmed and their day was a blast.  Their family and friends were great to hang out with and I couldn’t complain about anything of their day.  It was great.  Please enjoy their closing montage above and many thanks for Courtney and Alan for having us on their wedding day.

Erin and Bryan got married on April 27, 2013 at St. Louis Cathedral and the Omni Hotel and it was a perfect day to film.  Their wedding weekend got off to a great start with the rehearsal dinner and just flowed into their wedding day.  I couldn’t ask for a better day for Erin and Bryan and enjoyed everything I did for them.  From their engagement session, their love story, and on their wedding, Erin and Bryan was such a treat to work with and their wedding and reception was a blast to film.  Please enjoy their closing montage film above and thanks to Erin and Bryan for having my staff and I there to film their day.

The first time I met Erica and Sean I knew right away that they were good people.  From that first day all the way till their wedding day in April, it was an absolute pleasure to work with them.  I would describe them as easy going and fun.  They were just a blast to hang out with and even better to film and photo their wedding day.

Sean told me at that very first meeting that their wedding was going to be a wild one and it was.  I don’t remember a slow moment during their day and all of Sean and Erica’s friends were dance machine.  They danced to everything played and it was a wonderful day with all their family and friends celebrating their wedding.

I couldn’t ask for a better day for their wedding.  Clear skies for their ceremony and just a rockin reception inside their Fleur de Lis Center in Mandeville.  Please enjoy their closing montage video above and a handful of their wedding photos can be seen on our Facebook Fan Page.  Thank you to Erica and Sean for being great clients and just so damn easy to film and photo.

I’ve always enjoyed going to parties.  Hanging out with family and friends with good food and drinks, what else can you ask for?  I attended a great party last week when I was asked to go to Charlene and Chris’ Surprise Engagement Party.  During my first meeting with Charlene and Chris, they knew they were going to have a Engagement Party but didn’t know when it would be.  Hence, the surprise party.

From the beginning, Charlene mentioned how important this party was to her.  Her entire Bridal Party, her parents, her future in-laws and step-daughter and her son would be there.  Just hearing her talk about them, I knew I had to be at the party to film and shoot it.  It was a great party with very good people.  I really enjoyed myself and it was fun times getting to know everyone there.  This is the first of many wedding activities for Charlene and Chris and I can’t wait to get them infront of the camera for their Engagement and Love Story Sessions.  They are scheduled to get married on February 15, 2014 at Magnolia Plantation.  To view more photos from the Party, please visit our Facebook page

The first time I met Erica and Sean, I knew something was up. They couldn’t stop smiling and laughing during our wedding consult and all this was going on at 8 in the morning. As we sat there and talked about their wedding, I knew that their day as going to be a blast.

Erica and Sean brought that same happy attitude to their Engagement Session last week at Audubon Park and they were a blast to work with.  Sean has to be one of the funniest grooms I’ve ever met and it was difficult to keep a straight face on when he decided to do something silly for the camera.  I can only imagine how fun their wedding will be and they said numerous times that their wedding will be the best day of their lives.

My last session of 2012 was a family sister shoot with Sarah, Emily, and Amanda.  It was fun times and one of the best things about this session is that Sarah is one of my former volleyball players and I’ve known her since her freshman year in high school.  It’s always special for me to work with one of past players and I even coached Sarah during a club volleyball season.  That’s how far back we go.

Another great thing about this shoot was getting to know her sisters Emily and Amanda.  One of the life lessons I’ve learned from my grandfather was getting to know your clients and I have used that as the basis for DVB.  Just like Sarah, Emily and Amanda are great girls and all three of them were very friendly camera friendly.  I noticed during the shoot that Amanda, the youngest of the three, is the wild child and climbed up a tree for her solo pictures.  It made for a great shot and the look on Sarah and Emily as she went up on the tree was priceless.

The one thing I haven’t mentioned is that Sarah is getting married in 2014 and this was just one of many photo and film sessions that I have planned for Sarah, her family, and her fiancee Ray.  I had a great time with these sisters and I can’t wait to be a small part of Sarah’s wedding and capture their moments on film and photos.  To view more photos from their session, please visit our Facebook page at this link

Everything was perfect when Dalene, her entourage, and I went out for her Bridal Portrait Session this past April.  When she told me that she wanted her session at Audubon Park, I was excited as Audubon is my favorite place to shoot.  There are so many great places at Audubon Park and we a blast going around the park.

It’s always fun to take Bridal Portraits because you’re never at a loss of suggestions.  The mother wants this shot, the Maid of Honor likes this pose, and the best friend will suggest this.  Every suggestion I got was great and Dalene was a rock star throughout the whole day.  In between all the snaps that was taken and footage filmed, Dalene just kept saying thank you to all the “your beautiful” and “congratulations” shout outs from the walkers and runners from the track.  It was fun and I just love doing these.

Dalene is  great person and she had her destination wedding last Saturday in Honduras.  I can’t wait for her and Paul’s New Orleans Style Reception at the Audubon Tea Room with all her friends and family who couldn’t attend the wedding in Honduras.  It’s going to be a great time and a second chance for Dalene and Paul to have the time of their life

Ever since I finished editing Amanda’s Bridal Session, I wanted to write this blog piece and post some of her bridal portraits. I knew I couldn’t post them until after the wedding and when I got home from her day early Saturday morning, I grew excited.  I knew I could post her bridals for everyone to see.

Amanda was amazing during her portrait session.  She was comfortable and just very relaxed during the whole time Janell and I was with her.  It helped a lot that her mother, maid of honor, and one of her bridesmaid was there to offer support.  Everyone offered ideas on what type of shots we should take and I felt that we hit a home run on everything we did.  It was a great day behind the camera and offered me a sneak peek at what she would be wearing on her wedding day.
