Olivia & fitz
A minute (ish) of Fitz & Olivia's gorgeous wedding day. These two were the most peaceful couple--those laid-back, shoes-kicked-off early kinda people (she didn't even wear shoes, actually).

Mustard Seed Gardens.
Because the alternate title of this page is: "I DON'T REMEMBER MY WEDDING DAY"
If you follow me on social media you know I recently got married (yay!) ...but my wedding day is a complete blur to me— more than I thought it would be.
I’ve photographed so many weddings that I thought I would have the same kind
of experience and awareness and attention to details… but my memory of the day makes it seem like it was 20 minutes long— just flashes. The Monday after my wedding I woke up and wanted so so badly to see video to just remember what even happened and what the vibe was like. Luckily I’m doing an insane thing where I’m editing everything myself and so I had the photos and some video loaded onto my computer already. And it was awesome.
I watched our first dance almost in entirety and I felt so thankful that I had so much of it to see— it wasn’t just a 10 second clip of us dancing in a 5 minute montage video of the day. It was 3 1/2 minutes of our first dance as a married couple and I loved seeing what our faces looked like and trying to remember what we were talking about.
Aaaaand that’s when it hit me...
Holy smokes, we need to do video differently than we have been.
Just as my style of photography isn’t for everyone, this style of video may not be for everyone. And that’s A-OKAY.
Our longer version (as you’ll see below) is officially titled “uh-oh! Grandpa got ahold of the camera!” if that tells you anything.
We want it to feel the way your wedding day feels and reflect you as authentically as possible.
These films are not out of Hollywood because YOU aren’t. (unless you are. in which case.. uh.. sorry)
They'll be thoughtful and high quality, but won’t aim to make you look like movie stars in a way that you can’t relate to come Monday morning.
For $1800 (booked solo), you'll receive:
"JUST A MINUTE"
1(ish) minute super-short film —
Great for social media if you want to share a slice with your family and friends but not give them the whole shebang.
“Uh-oh, Grandpa got ahold of the camera”
— A long video in a string of lightly edited clips.
The day as an observer (or grandpa) saw it and captured it, à la the home videos we all love. A little imperfect, probably a little wonky, but taking you back. There are quiet moments, there are crazy moments. You guys laughing with your buddies while getting ready, clips of the vows, the speeches, the dances. Short pull-aside interviews with family and friends. A longer montage of your friends groovin’ on the dance floor.
The length of this video will be dictated by length and number of great clips we have, not the time, so there’s no limit (I’d guess 30-60 minutes. Long enough to have a real viewing party with your family.)
A little more advanced than home videos, it will include scene markers so you can jump around easily and some sections will be set to music (getting ready, couples portraits, dance floor montage, etc).
From there you can download them and send ‘em around to people that you want to share with-- or not.
(My personal strategy will be: wait till someone stops by to drop something off, lure them in with fresh-baked cookies and con them into sitting on the couch and watching every minute with me. ;p)
Both videos will be uploaded to
vimeo in high resolution and
*Would we do a custom package? Of course.
If you’ve got an idea or vision-- if you’re eloping, want a couples session in motion
or want a music video of you dancing around in your kitchen,
get in touch over on our contact page.
We're happy to create a custom quote for ya.
