Mini Movies! Quick fun wedding videos!

Our number one goal here is always stunning artistic wedding photography, but we have been developing a fun style of wedding video here at our studio over the last couple of years, as well. Our newest twist is the Mini Movie. An example can be seen at and another at

I shoot the video clips at the same time as the stills and create a mini wedding video that is about 10 minutes long, we can include still images and some sound as well, but the goal is a mini video that is fun to watch and share online and on DVD. Another unique example of our wedding movies can be seen at which showcases a real wedding film shot on Super 8mm film. These films are a great video alternative.

Let me know if you want to learn more about our video productions.

Black and White IR (infrared) Photography

Here are some IR examples from Amy and Will's wedding. If you are interested in learning more about IR or want to have some at your wedding let us know. You can always email Soren at:

IR photography involves looking at a special frequency of light which is just outside of our visible range, leaves and plants reflect this light and turn white, and the sky goes a deep dark shade. It can be very dramatic and a fun way to look at the world. I use a Canon D30 camera that I modified myself to capture IR images.
