Yoli & Mike Reception Reveal

Mike is a killer DJ (Rhythm of the Night Entertainment), so I think we spent a good part of our first meeting talking tech. But I soon discovered that in addition to the talent was a great personality to go along with it. And then there's Yoli who is as lovely on the inside as she is on the outside. What a great couple. What a fun party.

We love telling stories, and my favorite parts are the "behind-the-scenes" moments, when a couple is just being themselves. We caught this little moment just before the reception began. Enjoy!

Kudos to Laurie Portella of Bliss Weddings and Events for a phenomenal room design!

Ariana & Trey

From the moment I met Ariana and Trey, we hit it off. Those that know me are familiar with my background as an entertainer here in Orlando, and when I found out that Ariana and Trey were in the "business" too, we immediately went through our mental Rolodex and started naming people we both knew. We also traded stories from the theme park trenches and I knew that we were going to have a fun time capturing their wedding. It's always great when you really click with a couple, and I think it really shows in this video. Kudos to my editor Robert for putting this awesome highlight together.

Michelle & Troy

We had a great time working with Michelle and Troy. Not only are they completely in love with each other, they have fun with each other and it affects everyone around them. I think we smiled more than they did while shooting this (well, almost anyway)! Their pool top reception was filled with close family and friends who made our crew feel welcome and resulted in us getting some great footage, as well as some very fun interviews (not seen here). I think this video really captures the romance and buoyant spirit of the day.

Viktorija & Kal

Viktotija and Kal are as nice as they are beautiful -- just like their wedding. Those that know me know that I have a fondness for multi-cultural, exotic affairs, which is why this was one of my all time favorite events. Capturing this wedding was a thrill, and it is a pleasure to share these clips with you. Special thanks to my associate Mike Wolfe for his work on this event!

Erika & Jarrett

Had a blast with Erika and Jarrett, who had their wedding at one of my favorite locations -- The Hyatt Grand Cypress. Their friends and family had so many great things to say about these two, and we really wanted to feature that in their video. It's obvious that they not only love each other, but are also truly loved by those around them. Congratulations!

ANA Event in Phoenix, AZ

The Association of National Advertisers met recently in Phoenix, Arizona for their annual conference and we were there to provide our video services. We were tasked with creating captivating photomontages of the preceding day's events that were featured every morning of the conference. It was no easy task to impress seasoned marketers and advertisers from some of the nation's top companies, including Yahoo, Google and AOL, but we were up to the task. Relying on stunning photos from Orlando-based photographer Kevin Keelan and incorporating video from Jay Lavely (who produced the photo and video segments), I think we lived up to the challenge. In attendance were some very cool celebrity entertainers, including, Kevin Bacon, Tony Danza, Simon Baker of The Mentalist and Jane Krakowski of 30 Rock. Here are a few of the photos...
