Just Know This:
I'm Going To Look After You.
From Your First Contact, All The Way Through This Process
My goal isn’t to create a trendy narrative or portray couples in a way that misrepresents them. Rather - take the time to understand what it is your looking for, what you want your wedding day to be like, hear & understand your journey, and provide you with an experience that is for only for you.
Films & Photographs Help Us To Carve Away The Trappings That Might Come With With Everyday Life
and instead, focus on the core of what brought you two together. The minutia, the moments that no one else sees,
moments of shadows, lights, and everything in between; those details already exist and highlight the masterpiece.
"He did something that I had never expected"
"He did something that I had never expected which was made the day a true experience. We never felt awkward or posed and none of our photos felt that way either because we were truly having a great time. Francis is someone that understands the value these photos have and therefore does everything possible to make them memorable experiences and beautiful artifacts."
- Michelle & Jeff
"That is magical. That is art"
"Francis's photography has the uncanny ability to pull you back into each memory, as if reliving it another time. That is magical. That is art. That can only be done by someone that is not just a photographer, but someone who cares so deeply about his work and the people he offers his services to. To say we are grateful he was our photographer is an understatement for the gratitude we truly feel and the happiness we get from looking back on our photos."

Crafting Your Legacy
Film helps us to carve away the trappings that might come with a typical wedding day, and instead, focus on the core of what brought you two together. The minutia, the moments that no one else sees, moments of shadows, lights, and everything in between; those details already exist and highlight the masterpiece.
Own Your Narrative
Music, poetry, art. All of these mediums shape the way I view film. Sculpture, perhaps, best captures my approach. My goal isn’t to create a false narrative or portray my couples in a way that misrepresents them. Like a sculpture, your triumph already exists, just within the excess and noise of everyday life. Let's bring that legacy to life.

My interest in film started with everyday moments. Moments where for a sliver of time, the right light would breathe life into the ordinary, the mundane.
Something as simple as a plant cascading over a table, veins and new leaflets exposed in the sun, or capturing a photo of loved ones exchanging laughter.
The minutia, the moments that no one else sees, moments of shadows, lights, and all in between; those details already exist and highlight the masterpiece.

Connect + Introductions
I want to understand what it is your looking for, what you want your wedding day to be like, hear & understand your journey. After, I'll create a customized package for you that reflects just that.
Once you feel confident that I'm your person, to lock in your date, I ask for a signed contract agreement in addition to a 30% retainer to lock in your date. After that, it's all official!
Your Date & Retainer
After securing your date, we can dive deeper into planning every aspect of your day. This is super easy & laid back, starting with a questionnaire to find what your non-negotiables & must haves are.
Planning Your Experience
On your wedding day, you'll be able to fully live in the moment and I'll be there to capture it all. After, I'll take the time to edit your film & photos into a piece of art that's all about you.
