Last spring, I headed into NYC for a week long commercial project for Ryan Brenizer Photography in NYC. It was an amazing week filled with beautiful footage and a lot of new connections. My talented now-girlfriend Serena happened to be in NYC with Emme from Gossamer Vintage and Isabella from Via Gypset. The two of them planned on attending a vintage auction in the area and they decided to set up a quick shoot with the awesome Makayla. I had most of my cinema gear with me, so I decided to tag along and shoot some footage. We went to some pretty amazing fun locations in Manhattan and had a great afternoon shooting. Be sure to check out the images on Serena’s blog and the film below!

    Serena - Loved collaborating on this one with you! 🙂

Jackie & Tanner’s sun-drenched fall wedding at Pippin Hill Farm & Vineyards was absolutely gorgeous. With perfect weather and some incredible vendors under the wonderful direction of Amore Events by Cody, it was one for the books. Jackie & Tanner exchanged heartfelt letters leading up to their ceremony, overlooking the vineyards at sunset. We loved the design of their ceremony, which featured a beautifully crafted floral arch by Nature Composed. Jackie & Tanner’s love for their families showed so much throughout the wedding day and we’re thrilled to share their wedding film below!

    Serena - Love this – well captured! Not to mention, that light is just gorgeous.

Serena & I were thrilled to travel over to West Virginia for Melissa & Jason’s wedding in the gorgeous New River Gorge. Melissa is a structural bridge engineer, and ever since experiencing the New River Gorge Bridge, she wanted to get married there. The ceremony and reception were both held at Smokey’s on the Gorge, which had some pretty awesome views of the gorge.

Melissa & Jason met while at West Virginia University, and have been together ever since. They are also huge fans of Doctor Who (yes, they are already awesome), and incorporated a lot of subtle references into their wedding day. From the Tardis ring box that Jason proposed with to hand painted Tardis shoes, I am so glad they included a little bit of what they love into their wedding. I hope you enjoy a small look at Melissa & Jason’s wedding day below!

    Mark Webb-Photography - Awesome video Josh! It was a pleasure to work beside you and Serena, hope to do it again soon.

This fall, we had the honor of capturing Jess and Todd say their I Do’s at The Hay-Adams in Washington D.C. and collaborated with the talented team at Karson Butler Events. The view of the White House & Washington Monument from the Hay-Adams was truly a unique experience and provided an amazing backdrop for the wedding.

Jess and Todd both had such fun personalities that really translated throughout the entire wedding day. Each item they exchanged or played a part in the wedding had such profound meaning from their relationship. The custom cufflinks that Jess gifted to Todd (which had lyrics from their favorite song) were incredibly sweet and foreshadowed their amazing first dance later in the night. From the hilarious speeches to the epic entrance of Jess and Todd to their evening celebration, the wedding was awesome. Hopefully, the film will give you a small taste of Jess and Todd’s best day ever. Enjoy!

Reem and Stu were one of our favorite couples from this year. We were privileged to spend the majority of their wedding weekend alongside their closest of friends and family. We were taken aback by their love for one another. Every time we saw Stu glance over at Reem, his expression just said it all. They celebrated their special day at CrossKeys Vineyards, which is located in the heart of Shenandoah Valley. We hope you enjoy their wedding film below!
