I worked for ABC and FOX news in New York for six years which gave me an eye for detail and a knack for bagels. I covered everything from local and national news to professional sports including the NFL, NBA and NHL. I had the honor of winning the Michael Shoenbrun Award for Excellence in a Television Series and in 2015 I was named an ambassador for the Australian Professional Video Producers of Queensland.
So how did I end up filming weddings?
When I moved to Australia I attended a friend’s wedding as a guest and filmed it for the couple as a gift. They loved what I edited together and soon after found myself doing another friend’s wedding. Then another. Before I knew it I was working for a resort on the Gold Coast as their in-house wedding videographer. I developed a real passion for filming weddings which only increased with the feedback I received from each bride and groom. Documenting a life changing moment is a pretty special honor and I am so lucky to have found my niche.
I am humbled by the way Motion Art has been received in the wedding industry and I am lucky enough to have flown around Australia and internationally. Most recently I have filmed weddings in Italy, Fiji and New Zealand including professional surfer Bethany Hamilton’s wedding in Kauai, Hawaii. In 2016 we won our category in the Love Stories TV Film Awards that were announced in New York City.
Each wedding is unique and every couple has their own story. I’d be honored to tell yours.
