Erin + Danny – Mavris Wedding

It’s always great working at the Mavris in downtown Indianapolis. I love the weddings where the ceremony and reception are in the same place. It was great working with Erin and Danny and their entire wedding party. Plus I ran into a few familiar faces at the wedding. It is always a pleasure working with Stacy Newgent, one of my favorite photographers. Congratulations Erin and Danny!

9.11 Memorial-Indianapolis

I had the opportunity to take some stills on nine eleven during the unavailing of the nine eleven memorial. The memorial has two original beams from the World Trade Center. The two beams are facing towards the sky representing the twin towers. One of the beams has a bald eagle facing towards NY. My favorite part was the helicopter flyover during the final song. I was amazed at the number of people and it was neat to see kids in the distance watching for a parking garage. It was very emotional.

Wasson Nursery {unscripted} II – Indianapolis Videographer

I had the chance to work with Dan and Bob Wasson again, this time on a job site. This place was the biggest and most amazing landscape job I’ve ever seen. There is a large pond with japanese coy fish, a huge travertine patio with a grill area and fireplace and probably most impressive of all is the pondless stream waterwall.

“The goal of this project was to make it look natural” Dan

“Everyone cares about what they’re doing, and you can tell, just take a look at it” Bob

Mark + Melissa – Conrad Indianapolis Wedding

It was kind of ironic how I met up with Mark and Melissa.  Amanda at Conrad passed my name along as a wedding videographer and then I found out she was marrying Mark Myers, a friend I went to high school with over 3 hours away.   During the first dance I could hear Melissa say, “I can’t believe how fast the day has gone, ” and it did go fast, probably because we all were having a great time.  I think it was the most fun I had filming a wedding.  Maybe it was because I was hanging out with some familiar faces like Mark’s brother Craig and the Concord Minuteman 3-point star Tom Martin, or maybe it was having a blast in the limo with the crew.  The colors, flowers, dresses, everything was beautiful. I like how Melissa’s dad said, “I thought her favorite color was pink, then I found out today it was hot pink, there is a difference!”   We also got a special treat to hang out in the 7 million dollar Conrad condo, which was where the first look took place.  By the way it was a privilege shooting with Fine Art Photographer Jessica Strickland. Amazing work, check out Mark and Melissa’s photos here. I want to give a special thanks to my dad for coming along to help out.  I know Mark’s grandparents couldn’t make it down for the wedding, so I truly hope this video will make them feel like they were here.  Best wishes, Mark and Melissa.
