As I study the footage of some recent projects that I have done, I realize why I love Film so much. The deep breath of a bride that is finally face to face with the love of her life, the wink of a confident groom as he is talking with his new bride, the gentle, but passionate, lingering kiss of a couple that just exchanged vows, these are things that only video can capture. I absolutely love these moments. Photography captures and freezes a moment in time, but video engages and brings you into an atmosphere of a situation.
I have filmed a mother reading a beautiful letter to her unborn daughter, a grandfather to his grandchild and a heartbroken dad eulogizing his daughter and in all those, I can say that video really does bring the emotion of the situation to the viewer. For those who cannot make the event, it really is the next best thing.
My passion for Film started with my love for Photography. I have been a photographer for over 20 years and have really enjoyed capturing moments in time. I was asked by a friend who knew I had a very creative eye to film a special event for him It was in filming this event that I knew I had to do films.
Sales & Marketing/ Shooter
As a professional in Sales for most of my life, my passion has always been to deliver the best quality product with the best customer service. As the Marketing and Sales Manager of Shining Light Films, I get to do both. Here is a little about me: I met my Husband Deryk on E-Harmony in June of 2013, was engaged in December and married in February, 2014! They do say when you know, you know.. I didn't believe it until I met him.
When planning our wedding, I knew I definitely wanted a photographer but wasn't sure a videographer was in the budget. It was pretty close to our wedding day that I realized that I did want to capture the moments on film that I might have missed. I am so thankful we did. We will truly treasure our Wedding video for years to come and it is something that we can pass on to our children as well. Anytime we want to relive our wedding day, we can simply put in our DVD, and experience it again with all the sights, sounds, and emotions. That is why I am so passionate about what we do, and I want others to have the same experience. We genuinely care about our clients and will do our best to go above and beyond in everything we do.
I look forward to hearing your love story and the opportunity to capture your moments for you to have for your ever after….
