Nostalgic film, hybrid digital, and Super 8 video reels for Southern California wedding celebrations
Your wedding should be a blissful reunion where everyone gathers to celebrate and soak up the energy.
How did we end up so far away from that?
Film photography brings us back to simpler times
when the honesty of a moment was more important than doing it for the ‘gram…
Instead of being rushed from photo op to photo op, don’t you want to enjoy the moment and be present with your friends and family? Does every single moment really need to be “perfect?”
Film is an art form that resists our hyper-curated insta-culture by encouraging us to slow the hell down.
It brings back appreciation for human connection and honest moments, like lazy Sundays at home, or a game night with friends that goes on till 2am with no one noticing.
Film favors the unscripted, and so do I.

What's my vibe? Photo coverage that doesn't distract from the moment, so you can focus on what matters.
If your heart wants a wedding documented on film, then you’re probably a bit like me: craving deeper connections and a throwback to simpler times.
Weddings feel so commercialized right now. Couples and their families are getting steam-rolled by expectations and pageantry. I was beginning to see how shooting digital contributed to that…the overshooting, the paparazzi pace, hyper curating every moment to the Nth degree…
Less than a couple years into shooting weddings and I was burning out from the constant pressure to make every shot instagrammable. I started doubting if my creative, slower pace had a place in this industry.
Then the “come as you are,” laid-back nature of film began to inspire me again.
When everything else felt artificial, film gave me something real to hold and feel again.
Have Some Funky Fun
It’s more important you’re present with your guests - not putting on a performance for them.
You’re not into all the typical wedding fuss. You’d rather move slow and savor each moment.
Film is all about embracing the moment as it plays out! It emphasizes creativity and spontaneity.
