Winter Wedding in Johnstown, Pennsylvania - December 1, 2012

Wow, this December Wedding was absolutely gorgeous. From the weather, to the people, to the flowers and reception venue, everything was stunning! And I don't think Renee or Darren stopped smiling the entire day. They were an awesome couple to film.

We started the day with groom prep at Darren's place and then headed over to Renee's parent's house to film the girls. The ceremony was held at the beautiful Whalley Chapel on the campus of University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown.

The sunlight on this crisp winter day was just perfect and made for some great footage during the afternoon. The wedding party was great to work with as we made our way around campus for the photo session. We finished out the day in the Main ballroom at the Holiday Inn in downtown Johnstown. Top Dog Productions DJ's the event and provided the uplighting that totally transformed the room into something amazing.

 Thanks to both Renee and Darren's families for showing us such a good time. It was a pleasure sharing your big day with you…Enjoy!

My Wedding Film - Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania

So this video is a little different and a little extra special. It is my wedding! Yes, you heard me. On June 16, 2012, I married my lovely wife, Jamie. Our ceremony took place in downtown Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania and our reception was held at the Blairmont Country Club. The venue offers a stunning view of the surrounding golf course and historic Hollidaysburg. The day was bright and sunny and we really couldn't have asked for better weather.

At this point, you are probably asking yourself, how did you film your own wedding? Well obviously, I couldn't do that, so we decided to hire our good friends at Dorothy Cinema Co. Cory and Dan are filmmakers from Harrisburg, PA. They filmed the entire day from start to finish and handed over some incredible footage for me to edit. And since it was my wedding, I decided to do a bit of a different style of editing. It's a short film edit and it's something I've decided to offer couples for 2013!

Go ahead and sit back, relax and enjoy our wedding day!

Heather & Scott - October Wedding in Central Pennsylvania

Heather & Scott were such a fun couple to film. They were all about having a good time and that is exactly what we had…in fact it was a great time! 

October is such a beautiful month here in Central Pennsylvania and a perfect month for a wedding. Heather & Scott had a short and sweet ceremony at a small church in Northern Cambria, PA. Following the ceremony was a very moving memorial to Heather's father who passed away a few years ago. 

We then followed them in the fields across from the church for their photo session. The blue skies and autumn leaves were a beautiful backdrop. Their reception took place at the Carrolltown Banquet Hall.

Thanks to Heather & Scott as well as both of their families for having us take part in your special day. We had an amazing time! Enjoy your highlights!

September Wedding in Central PA - Nicole & Eric

Now this was an absolute beauty of a day. September might be my favorite month for weddings in Central Pennsylvania and Nicole and Eric's wedding day was evidence of that. Beautiful skies, decent temperatures, and a beautiful backdrop of changing leaves at Blue Knob Ski Resort.

We started our day at the best man's parents house where the guys were getting dressed and ready for the day. When we finished up there, we headed over to the Manor House, an old brick home in Martinsburg, PA. The girls were hanging out downstairs when we arrived so we headed up to get shots of the dress. Once they were dressed and ready to go we were off to the church.

After a short and sweet ceremony at the church, we headed up the mountain to Blue Knob Ski Resort for the photo session. It was a stunning sight as the sun began to set on the beautiful fall leaves.

The night finished up with a great reception put on by Dancing DJ's and decorations from Best Event Rentals. Thanks to Nicole & Eric as well at their families for letting us be a part of your special day. Good luck and Enjoy!

Ashley & Tyler | Outdoor Wedding - Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania

Ashley & Tyler braved the rain as they exchanged their wedding vows on a wonderful late September day. The wedding took place outdoors at Diamond Lane Farm in Roaring Spring, Pennsylvania and even though it sprinkled a bit in the afternoon, the rest of the day was fantastic.
We started with bride and groom prep in the early afternoon in the cozy wooden building next to the barn area. Shortly after the ceremony was over, the overcast skies made for some great colors and lighting during their photo session. We ended up with some great footage!
Thanks to Ashley and Tyler for being so much fun and for having big smiles on their faces throughout the whole day. We appreciate the opportunity to take part in you special day. Enjoy!

Meghan & Joe - Eastern Pennsylvania Wedding

So I knew Meghan from our hometown of Hollidaysburg, PA, but we hadn't really kept in touch until she contacted us for her wedding. We were thrilled that she thought of us and gave us the opportunity to travel to Malvern and shoot her wedding at such a beautiful location. Meghan & her husband Joe had a phenomenal day for a wedding. And I cannot say enough about how fun and easy this wedding was from the location, to the wedding party, to the other vendors...everyone was just amazing.

The Chester Valley Country Club is absolutely gorgeous and one of our favorite wedding venues thus far. We were more than excited to be filming outdoors right next to the golf course. Thankfully the weather cooperated and we were able to film on such a beautiful day. And a big THANK YOU to Mary Kate from Kate's Lens Photography as well as DJ Taz from Silver Sound Entertainment for being so awesome and working so well with us all day long.

We'd like to thank Meghan & Joe as well as their families for such a fantastic day. It was a blast from beginning to end. Good luck to you both and we hope the best for you in the future.

Laura & Narinder - Altoona Wedding Video

What a beautiful day for a wedding in Altoona, PA. We started out the day at Laura's parents home where she did makeup and put on her dress. Then we headed over to the Ramada where Narinder and his groomsmen were hanging out and getting ready. This couple was such a blast. Just easy going and laughing and smiling the whole time. 

The ceremony took place at Mount Caramel in downtown Altoona. This place is amazing inside! Just absolutely full of beauty and character. I can't wait to film another wedding there. Afterwards, we headed to the Railroaders Museum and the Women's club for the photo session. These are two awesome places for outdoor wedding photos!

We drove straight over to the Calvin House for cocktail hour and the rest of the reception. Great food, dancing, and just a fantastic time that evening.

Thank you to both families for letting us capture your special day. Good luck with everything in the future. Enjoy!

Reese's 4th Birthday | April 14, 2012 | Altoona, Pennsylvania


Reese's 4th Birthday Party was everything a 4 year old country girl could ask for. There was a barn, horse riding, a cake shaped just like a horse, and of course all of her friends and family. Oh yes, and cake pops! How could I forget?

The rain held off for the most part on this mid April afternoon in Central Pennsylvania and that was a good thing considering that most of the action took place outside. Reese and her friends loved riding the pony; even her mom hopped on and took a ride.

After the food was served and the cake was cut, a pinata was ripped apart and the candy fell to the kids below. Judging by the excitement of the kids and the smiles on their faces, I believe that this party was a complete success!

We teamed up with Blink of an Eye Photography for this birthday party. Be sure to friend them on Facebook. Search Blink of an Eye Photography from Altoona, Pennsylvania. And don't forget to friend Altoona Video Production as well. Thanks to Reese, her friends, and her family for making our experience such a memorable one!

Jenna & Tyler - Altoona, Pennsylvania Wedding Video Highlights

A stunningly warm and beautiful day in early March...weren't we lucky?

We were indeed, as the sun poured through the streets of historic downtown Altoona, PA and temperatures rose to above average for the season, thus making the already happy couple, that much happier.

Jenna & Tyler are two wonderful people. When I met them, I could tell that they had this happiness that was just contagious. And you could really see that happiness come alive throughout their wedding day.

The ceremony took place in one of the oldest churches we've ever been to, dating back to 1896! Once we arrived, we had plenty of time to relax and film both sides of the wedding party as they got ready. With the wedding ceremony set to begin late afternoon, photos of the guys and gals were taken on the steps outside of the church as well as the streets of Altoona. Capping the night off was a grand reception at the Discovery Center which just so happened to be about a block away from the church. How convenient!

Jenna & Tyler are such great people and we truly wish them and their families the best of luck in the future!

Happy 1st Birthday Paige!

There are so many things I could say about Paige, the beautiful birthday girl featured in our latest film. If I had to sum it up in this blog post, I couldn't, it is just impossible. She is one of the cutest and happiest little girls I've ever met in my life…and I only spent a few hours with her!

The story begins a few weeks prior to the big day when her mom and my good friend Abby invited me to film the event. How exciting! I had heard so much about this little girl and have seen so many photographs; this opportunity to film her 1st birthday was obviously something I couldn't pass up. I accepted the offer and couldn't wait for the day to come.

Following this cute little girl around on her special day was an absolute joy. She smiled and laughed at just about everything she saw. The wonders of childhood, especially first birthdays are such a timeless adventure. I was thrilled to be able to capture these moments on film. Enjoy!
