Perfect Wedding Experience!
Amazing Wedding Video!
Grateful we decided on videography
Our venue was double booked and having a rodeo the same dayy (yes, really) and Doug just laughed it off and rolled with it, which was exactly how we were handling it too.
He had a sneak peak back to us in a couple of days, the fully edited video, plus ceremony and speeches within a couple of weeks AND he sent us a hilarious blooper reel of assorted things going awry. So thankful we added in videography at the last minute and that Doug was able to do it.
Doug made my day extra special with his creativity!
Best Experience with a vendor!
Professional, Polite, and a Pleasure to work with
Ceremony memories forever

I have been behind the video camera for as long as I can remember. One of my first toys was a video camera you could plug into a TV. After that, I would walk around with my Dad’s camcorder and narrate everyday life. I won several awards for short films I shot or produced in college. I really love projects I can be creative on. After I graduated from TV Broadcasting school, I worked at Bell Media for 10 years, but now my focus is on making videos.
The best part about shooting weddings is seeing the reactions to the final video. There are laughs, there are tears, and there is always a happy couple when they get to see the video. Your videographer is beside you for your entire wedding day, and I love to become friends with the whole wedding party. The more fun and emotion we capture, the better the video will be!
When I’m not shooting, I’m working on mastering After Effects and 3D animation. I love to add animations to videos. I 3D design models and 3D print. I have an Etsy page with 3D printed toys and knick-knacks. I play rhythm guitar in a metal band (I don’t know any of the lyrics!), and I’d never say no to Thai food.
