Mission Visual

Mission Visual

Ok, so we don't really think that you 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.  So...our biggest thing is our personalities, or so we have been told.  Both Mike and Solomon have film degrees from local universities.  In addition to having great filmmaking gear, we have a fun, laid-back style of shooting in a documentary style.  We don't pose you.  We don't even talk very much.  We just let things happen as the happen, and document all of the moments as unobtrusively as possible, with as much fun as possible.  We've been doing this for a long time, having filmed over 700 weddings between the two of us.  Experience is the most important tool that we have, so we can anticipate where to be, who to film, and what happens next.

Upon the beginning of the editing process, we do consume mass quantities of coffee.  So, there's that.  But, we also have over fifteen years of experience in putting together wedding films.  Professionally.  We don't have day jobs, and we don't work in TV or advertising.  We make wedding films, and are immersed in and well known throughout our industry.  We have been chosen to document industry programs, and we are 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 we LOVE making wedding films.  We love LOVE.  We would love to work with you!
