We had the privilege of helping get the word out about this Des Moines gem.  Great food, great people, just great…

Pork Tornadoes Live

This was our biggest live production to date. 12 cameras, 6 cameramen, multitracked audio, a bunch of rain, and a good band with a huge crowd. If only it would have been at Simon Estes Amphitheater like it was supposed to be. Still looks awesome though.

 

Falling in Love All Over Again (Wedding Season is Here)

The one week countdown to wedding season is here and I can’t wait to fall in love all over again.

I love studying stories on Friday nights and waking up on Saturdays with a unique purpose of mind.

I love spending Saturdays with my husband.

I love witnessing a day through the twinkling eyes of a bride.

I love seeing the groom and embracing his cool nervousness.

I love the guaranteed lunch date with my husband.

I love the stress and pressure and ambiguity.

I love the unpredictability of weather and people.

I love being forced to remain quiet and still and the challenge that the art of observation demands from us.

I love discovering the first line of the narrative we are writing.

I love building something from nothing.

I love days when my husband and I pull off projects seamlessly and love (even more) when we find ways to combat the unexpected curveballs.

I love the late-night, after-all-is-done drink that my husband and I sign off the day with.

I love the rare invitation into people’s love and life.

I love what we are capable of learning about ourselves from this work and am grateful that a reflection of who we are may find a thread into a new story.

Gearing up for 2016

With the 2016 wedding season right around the corner, we are getting all the new gear ready to go.  We now have 2 Sony A7s ii cameras with a handful of new Sony glass to compliment them.  There are a couple new lenses for the Canon bodies too.  We now offer up to 6 cameras for an event.  More if you want to count Go Pros…because we just added 6 GoPro 4 Black cameras in a 360 degree rig.  It produces those super awesome 360 videos that are starting to pop up more and more…the ones that you watch on your phone and you can look around the environment just by moving your phone.  Real cool.

All of these new toys…I mean tools…are here to make your video look even better to tell the story of your day.
