Daniel and I first met professionally. He’s one of the most talented wedding filmmakers I’ve ever known — masterfully creating incredible wedding videos without being disruptive. (Check out his work at www.gruenfilms.com.) As our professional relationship grew into a friendship and I got to know Amanda, I fell in love with them both.
When Dan got engaged, I couldn’t wait to shoot their engagement session. It was a gift to congratulate a good friend and colleague. Then a few months later, when he started talking about having me work on his wedding, rather than working with him at a wedding, I was overjoyed.
Just watch how Amanda and Dan connect with their families, friends, and most of all, the love they have for their parents. I’m so moved to be the person the trusted with the beginning of their family history, and I hope this powerfully tells their tale for generations to come.
