Kimberly and Jeremiah Wedding Film

100 Hearts This is a short little tale of a wonderful couple from Grayslake, Illinois that decided our fair city was the best place for their wedding cinematographer to capture a short film of their day.  This was my first real venture in to cinema from our photography roots.  I have always been a fan of films and often my style reflects a more cinematic look so I felt comfortable behind the helm.  The entire short was shot on a […]

Katie and Mark.  What can I say?

Ashley and Jeremy Same Day Slideshow
