Alexei & Noelle Wedding (VIDEO) | Epping Forest Yacht Club

Alexei and Noelle had an amazing wedding last month at Epping Forest Yacht Club surrounded by family and friends. These two had some of the best wedding vows I’ve ever heard. I wish I could have included the entire length of them but unfortunately ran out of space for this song. But I love it when vows get pretty emotional because it always makes for an impactful edit. This is one of those videos.

Join me in congratulating Alexei and Noelle on their special day!

Edward & Karen Wedding (VIDEO)

Edward and Karen had a beautiful wedding in the backyard of their new home together. They worked REALLY hard to decorate their property for the wedding and I have to say, I was incredibly impressed. It looked better than some of the actual venues in town whose entire purpose is to have weddings. So hats off to these couple for an outstanding job. On top of that, their ceremony turned out amazing under perfect clear weather. Join me in congratulating this amazing couple on their big day!

Kirk Family Homecoming

So on Thanksgiving day I got an email from Jenna about this awesome opportunity to capture a unique family moment on video. Her husband Jesse is in the military and went on a 7 month deployment. During his deployment Jenna gave birth to their first-born child, a beautiful baby girl named Jianna. Now, I am a dad to two little girls myself and so I can’t even imagine what it must be like for military families who end up going through these kind of situations. Getting connected with Jenna gave me a whole new appreciation for the sacrifices they have to make.

So real quick before you watch the video, I need to give a BIG shout out to Alex Slupski who stepped in and at the last minute filled in for me and filmed the actual event. (What you’ll see I merely did the edit for.) I was originally supposed to film but after Jesse’s return was delayed by a day due to weather, my schedule no longer allowed me to make it out. Alex stepped up and on very short notice got the job done. He is seriously, THE MAN. He is crazy talented and you should check him out by going to https://search-productions.com. Hiring him for a video project is money well spent!

Ok that’s all for now. Join me in saying a very big CONGRATULATIONS to the Kirk family on their homecoming! Now grab some tissues and take a look!

James & Katie Wedding (VIDEO) | Epping Forest Yacht Club

James and Katie had an absolutely stunning wedding on the river at Epping Forest Yacht Club this past weekend. Katie was the makeup artist for a couple of previous weddings I’ve shot which is how she found me and I’m glad I got the call because this one has turned out to be one of my favorites. Join me and wishing these two a very big congratulations and a wonderful future together!

Black Widow Trailer (Parody)

About 8 months ago I left the ad agency I was working for to start with another agency in downtown Jacksonville called St. John & Partners. Now at 35 years old, and having been in the corporate workforce since I was 19 years old, I can honestly say of all the places I've worked, this company is the most amazing. In my short time I have already made several close friends. Everything from the office space, to the work and especially the people....the place is truly special. I've never seen or been a part of a work culture quite like this before.

Throughout the year the company does several events to keep us all engaged and building up our relationships with one another. The most recent event was right up my alley because it was an internal competition to split the company up into teams and see who could come up with the best "short film trailer" based on a randomly chosen historical piece or fairytale. The team I ended up on drew Goldilocks and The Three Bears and were tasked with coming up with creative and modern retelling of the story. It was SO MUCH fun to make and it was awesome getting to know some new faces in the company. With all that being said, I welcome you to watch our submission of "Gold Widow" a modern spin on the character of Goldilocks. Enjoy!

John & Nikki Wedding (VIDEO)

Nikki and I met at an ad agency we both used to work at near San Marco where we became friends. She was a graphic designer and I was the in-house video guy. After a few years we both ended up moving on from that company but still kept in touch. When Nikki got engaged and reached out to ask if I'd film her wedding, I was mega pumped because I knew given her incredible design skills and artistic eye (don't believe me? GO HERE) it could only mean one thing......Her wedding would definitely LOOK amazing. I showed up at the mansion and it was a videographer's playground!

Surrounded by family and friends, John and Nikki tied the knot this past weekend in San Marco under clear skies and amazing weather. Take a moment to watch their special day, and join me in saying CONGRATS to this awesome couple!

Emily + Brock | Epping Forest Yacht Club Wedding Videographer (VIDEO)

Brock and Emily found me in a Google search when they were looking for videographers for their wedding. When we first met and started talking, somewhere during the conversation we found out that we both go to Eleven22! So I do not believe we met by accident. :)

Brock and Emily had a beautiful wedding at one of Jacksonville's most incredible venues, Epping Forest Yacht Club. But my favorite part about this couple, AND their wedding, is that it put Jesus first! And you can hear it coming straight from both their hearts in their vows to one another. So come along and take a look at the wedding highlight reel from their special day and join me in saying congratulations to this amazing couple!

You Love Me Through and Through (VIDEO)

In all honesty, this isn't a post I am necessarily eager to share. Everyone is their own worst critic and I don't even like hearing my self sing let alone watching myself sing. But in this last couple years I have been working towards pushing my musical talents further which is something I regrettably neglected for a while. I'm still finding my voice a little bit but slowly and surely I've been gaining some more range and control over it. It's nothing earth shattering compared to some singers out there, but it's mine and it's a talent God has given me and so I want to grow that gift and use it for His glory.

This is a very simple song written by Will Reagan and his band United Pursuit. Only 4 chords and basically two verses. But there is tremendous meaning behind these words that can touch your heart if you've got ears to hear.

The message? God loves you exactly AS you are and exactly WHERE you are. He loves us through all of our junk. Just like any good dad who loves his kids unconditionally. Don't ever let your past mistakes make you feel excluded from God's love. He knows about them and He knows the ones you'll make again in the future, and He loves you anyway. Through and through.

My hope is this blesses you.
