Ok, so maybe you don't care if we like In-n-Out, or Starbucks coffee, or our favorite TV shows. You probably want to know what you are getting from us PROFESSIONALLY. Let's just call it fresh, fun filmmaking. Mike has a degree in filmmaking from California State University Fullerton...yeah, he's a Titan...and in addition to having great filmmaking gear, he has a fun, laid-back style of shooting in a documentary style. He won't pose you. With his team, they don't even talk very much. They just let things happen as they happen, and document all of the moments as unobtrusively as possible, with as much fun as possible. They've been doing this for a long time, having filmed over 800 weddings. Experience is the most important tool that they have, so they can anticipate where to be, who to film, and what happens next.
Upon the beginning of the editing process, he does consume mass quantities of coffee. So, there's that. But, he also has over fifteen years of experience in putting together wedding films. He has filmed for Microsoft, Make-A-Wish, and the American Music Awards. Professionally. This is his day job, and he will personally edit your film. (Not somebody who wasn't at your event!) He makes wedding films, and is immersed in, and well known, throughout the wedding industry. He has been chosen to document industry programs, and he is a donor to Wish Upon a Wedding, an organization that provides wedding services to couples facing terminal illness.
The biggest thing for you to know, is that he LOVES making wedding films. He loves LOVE. He would love to work with you!
