From Birmingham, Alabama to the World
Welcome to my website! My name is Joe, and I am thrilled to have the opportunity to share a little bit about myself with you. As a people person, I find immense joy in meeting new individuals and building meaningful connections.
Nature has always been my sanctuary, and I am constantly inspired by its breathtaking beauty. Whether it's capturing stunning landscapes or documenting the wonders of wildlife, my love for photography and videography allows me to bring these moments to life.
Having filmed over 100 weddings in recent years, I have come to understand the significance of this special day in a couple's life. It is my utmost passion to create timeless wedding videos that encapsulate the essence of love, joy, and cherished memories.
At the age of 19, I made the bold decision to relocate to Nashville, Tennessee in pursuit of my dreams. Enrolling at SAE Institute, I embarked on a journey to become an esteemed engineer, all while harboring a deep passion for music. However, upon completing my studies, an unexpected fascination with the world of film took hold of me. This newfound interest led me to Montgomery, Alabama, where I secured a position as the head engineer at a local recording studio. As time passed, my intrigue in videography continued to grow, although I never truly pursued it professionally. It wasn't until I turned 23 and proposed to my high school sweetheart that my life took a different turn. Returning to my hometown of Anniston, Alabama, I entered into the bliss of marriage and soon became a proud parent. In a delightful twist of fate, my daughter's initials, JNF, would later become a significant part of my journey. It was during this time that I purchased my very first camera, a Canon 70D, and began capturing fishing adventures with my friends. One fateful day, while perusing wedding videos, I was struck by the beauty and artistry they possessed. Inspired, I approached my wife and inquired if she knew any couples about to tie the knot. As luck would have it, a couple from her church was preparing for their big day in just a month's time. Seizing the opportunity, I offered to film their wedding free of charge, and that decision would forever alter the course of my life. Over the years, I have ventured into a multitude of events, from birthday parties to corporate gatherings, concerts, basketball and football games, commercials, and everything in between. Yet, weddings have always held a special place in my heart, as they were the catalyst for my journey into the world of videography. There is an indescribable joy in documenting a couple's love story, immortalizing it for generations to come. To think that their children and grandchildren will be able to witness and cherish these memories is truly remarkable.
