Five Minutes with Best Made Videos®
Who is the person behind Best Made Videos®?
I am the owner and operator at Best Made Videos®. I graduated from Gonzaga college in 2008 and worked in TV news as a videographer before starting my own company in March of 2013. I subsequently quit my news job that December and have worked for myself ever since.
How did you start filming weddings?
I talk about my transition in this podcast episode of my wedding vendor focused podcast "Get to Know Your Wedding Pro." My wife and I were out to dinner for Valentine's Day and I was talking to a self employed winery owner. I remember thinking how awesome it would be to own your own business and to be able to work for yourself. I wasn't originally planning on doing weddings, but I booked a last minute wedding off of Craigslist and it was so much fun I decided to go all in. In TV news most of the time people don't want news cameras around, so being welcomed and joyed at a wedding was a unique and fun experience!
I have a small team of subcontractors I use to book additional dates when I am already spoken for but I handle all of the editing at our company.
What’s the best part of filming weddings?
I enjoy the detail shots of the wedding day, the dress especially, shoes, etc. I did a compilation video last year showing all of our dress shots from that year.
What’s your favorite wedding moment you’ve ever caught on film?
Best moment hands down was Cory’s first look when he saw Kristi coming down the aisle.
It’s about 1/2 way through this video, and I think it speaks for itself but needless to say it was one of the most emotional first looks I have ever seen in 200+ weddings.
What’s your favorite wedding song?
I’m a big fan of “Stop Time” by Landon Austin.
Seen in this video. It’s not your typical wedding song, it’s more of a pop variety. It just showcase the fun and joy we try to capture in our wedding videos.
