Vanna & Hercules - Denver, CO

I love this piece.  Vanna and Hercules put their complete faith in us to capture and express their wedding in an artistic film, and we couldn't be more thankful.  They celebrated with all of their hearts, family, and friends, and the day was full of so many beautiful and genuine moments that it was hard to stop filming.  We hope you enjoy this piece, and we wanted to say thank you again to Vanna and Hercules for such positive feedback about this film:

"Matt! WOW. I can't accurately describe how amazing this is. It really exceeded all my expectations and is my new favorite movie! I'm going to be watching it all day..."

"A few more compliments because I just can't contain my excitement! I'M obsessed with how you had my sister's statement of family is everything throughout. The music detail is UNREAL and it's just the most amazing thing I've ever seen. You totally made it like my dream of half nightclub and half greek taverna. You are so so talented and I just can't wait for my sisters to get married so that we can do it all over again with you. I will recommend you time and time again. You are a true artist."

Estes Park Wedding Film at Lost Antler Ranch!

We had the chance to work with three other stellar film makers on this project and what came out felt so good and unique that we had to share this piece!  Elias & Roo shared such a beautiful celebration with their friends and family, in such a beautiful space, but what we enjoyed most about this grand film is how palpable the love between this couple is.  We hope you enjoy!  

TJ Miller & Kate Gorney's Beautiful & Whimsical Celebration...on Super 8mm!

When TJ Miller & Kate Gorney told us they wanted their wedding captured in a way that blended the feeling of The Wonder Years with the sensibility of Salvador Dali...I had no idea what that could, would, or should look like, but I knew I was up to the challenge.  (I'm a pretty big Dali and Buñuel fan, and who doesn't like The Wonder Years!)  Their celebration sounded beautiful, vintage, and just a bit off the beaten path, and that seemed like a great fit with our aesthetic.  I was mostly roped in by the fact that TJ, who had grown up near Cheesman Park in Denver, CO was truly interested in highlighting the local talent Denver has to offer.  In that vein, he brought in some people who we felt truly honored to collaborate with, such as their photographer Ashley Sawtelle, whose work from this wedding was featured in Town and Country.  We took this love for Colorado creatives one step further in the edit by collaborating with the oh-so-talented Colorado based musician, Elin Palmer.  Her song, Stora Stövlar, flows seamlessly with the super 8mm footage we captured from the day, and when we reached out to her to make sure the lyrics, which you'll note are not in English, made sense for a wedding film like this project, this is what she had to say,  "The song lyrics, by the way, are suited perfect for a wedding, the gist of it: Two people walking with big boots through a city, feeling the energy of 1000 voices of the world. Chorus: Its was just …. You and Me….today."  While they might not have been wearing literal big boots on their wedding day, as I start to see these two pop up more and more in films and other big productions, it does feel like they will be sharing some big boots together on their journey through life!  We'll let the film tell the rest of the story, but it was a magical ride, and we hope you all enjoy!
