I absolutely love shooting winter weddings in Colorado. I grew up in the mountains, and winter is my absolute favorite time of year. Snow, blue skies, bare aspens and evergreens make for such a perfect, romantic backdrop for a wedding, and make for beautiful video. I was overjoyed when Ali and Kelton contacted me this summer, asking me to shoot their wedding at Devil's Thumb Ranch between Christmas and New Years. The day, the venue and the couple couldn't have been more perfect. I can't wait to edit their highlight video!
One of my greatest joys of wedding video is when I get to capture the wedding of someone dear to me. Gwen has been one of my closest friends since we met at the University of Denver. A few years after that, she and her then brand new boyfriend Gianmarco were guests at my wedding in 2010. I have been privileged to watch their love grow and to see their story unfold. It was an enormous honor when they contacted me in March and asked me to help capture one of the most important chapters in that story.
They were a wonderful couple to work with. Gwen was an absolutely gorgeous bride, and Gianmarco is probably the warmest, most unabashedly smiley groom I've ever gotten to shoot. I could not be happier for them.
The wedding took place at the beautiful Hudson Gardens Event Center in Denver Colorado.
I'm really excited to announce that I am now offering live streaming of weddings anywhere with 4G cell service! When I'm not shooting weddings, live streaming is a large part of my business, and the technology has finally reached the point where the two can be combined.
I started looking into live streaming weddings in preparation for my brother-in-law's wedding this August. My wife and my brother-in-law's grandmother is not going to be able to attend the wedding in person for health reasons, which is a major blow to the family. Being the resident family video guy, I set to work to figure out how to downsize my large multi-camera streaming setup to be portable and non-intrusive for weddings. After months of tinkering and testing, and a few wonderful couples who were willing to be my guinea pigs, I finally have live streaming for weddings. All I need for it to work is wifi or a decent 4G cell signal. In addition, I can stream to YouTube,, which is familiar to couples, their families, and even their not so tech-savvy grandparents.
I truly believe this will be revolutionary for many my couples, as I know most of them have similar situations with loved ones who cannot attend the weddings. I'm also pleased to announce that the pricing for this starts at $1199 for single camera streaming with venue provided wifi, when bundled with a full wedding package. While I know this isn't inexpensive, I recently heard a story from a planner about a company that charged $2500 for a same day upload of a single camera ceremony shoot to YouTube, and I'm really excited to be able to offer so much more affordable of an option. I am not in the business of overcharging couples, so it's very rewarding to have a solution that is worthwhile for me while still being accessible.
As a standalone service, the service starts at $1599.
That's all for now!
