Laura and Kye | Wedding @ Charleston, IL


This video is LONG overdue! We are excited to share the wedding of Laura and Kye with you today! It has been a crazy last two weeks for us with travel and other life happenings. Laura had morning hair and makeup appointments in the downtown Mattoon area and then preparations continued at the beautiful home of her parents house. We rocked this wedding day with the super talented Miller Photography out of Mattoon (who was shooting the pictures for the day). We love working with other couples that do what we do and “get it.” Its always a blast. Laura and Kye were a super fun couple and you could tell were just meant for each other. Their wedding ceremony was very touching and you could tell there was a lot of love and support from both families. We tagged long to the campus of EIU to take some video shots of the bridal party as well as Laura and Kye and then headed to the beautiful reception at the U Hotel in Charleston. The party as happening and it was a very relaxed fun day! Thanks for choosing us to film your wedding, we really enjoyed working with everyone involved!

Kendra and Cameron | Wedding @ Eagle Ridge Resort, Galena IL


Wow was this an amazing wedding day and quite eventful. Doug and I drove up to Galena, IL on a snowy very bitterly cold night to shoot the wedding of Kendra and Cameron the following day. We woke up Saturday morning at Eagle Ridge Resort in Galena to over a foot of snow. We could tell that this was going to make travel very difficult for many and we were thankful we had made it in the night before. Although we only provided video services for the day we were still packing a lot of gear and were again thankful the wedding and reception was going to take place in the same building. Poor Kendra had a very difficult morning for any bride when she in her mother were in a car accident because of the snow on the way to the resort. I felt terrible for her as she is just the sweetest, most genuine person you have ever met and I had hoped the day would improve for her. As the day went on she dressed in her STUNNING gown and met her groom Cameron who hands down had the BEST reaction by a groom to his bride I have EVER seen. I normally am not a crier but I was tearing up at their meeting as it was very special and emotional. Their sunset ceremony took place to an amazing backdrop view of snow covered woods and their reception followed with an amazing meal, great DJ, and memorable speeches. I loved how genuine and real Kendra and Cameron’s love was in front of the camera and we loved meeting them and their families. Although their day was hectic it hopefully will be a day that they remember forever with fond memories. Thanks to you both for including us in your special day! We wish you all the best!

America’s Select Home | Lake Sara Feature Home @ Effingham, IL

Kate and I have been working on a new winter project for America’s Select Homes in Effingham, IL and have gotten to view some incredible homes so far in the project. This first home is a recent construction by the company that features a bar, wine cellar, fire place, and walk out basement to some great Lake Sara views. It is the perfect Lake House. Kate and I have really enjoyed working with the team and have a video tour to show to you for this home. For pictures of this wonderful home, check out Kate’ s blog photos here. Her blog also has more details about the homes and our upcoming projects with America’s Select Homes. We both think they do an excellent job in creating unique homes while always keeping their client in mind.

Holly and Scott | Wedding @ First Christian Church Effingham, IL

Hope everyone is staying warm in this miserable, cold weather. Kate and I are glad we don’t have very many shoots going on as the conditions outside are pretty poor. Despite the “off” time of the year we have actually been very busy with weddings. Holly and Scott were our last wedding of 2013 in late December followed by the Keller Convention Center Bridal show and two more wedding videos in the month of January (one taking us as far north as Galena). We were happy to end the 2013 wedding year off with a bang with the wedding of Holly and Scott. This was a great couple with a fun bridal party and Adam and I enjoyed filming the day. Kate has already posted her photos of the day which you can check out here. Reception was held at the Keller Convention Center and it was nice to see a lot of familiar faces at the wedding. Big thanks to my second videographer Adam, who is already a pro at handling wedding day craziness, for helping me out. We have some great videos on the way so stay tuned for our next wedding postings! Congrats to Holly and Scott, thanks for choosing us to film your day!
