We are a small cinema team based in Illinois who came together in 2010 to tell stories in a creative and meaningful way.

When we create our films, story comes first. We put people at the forefront, keeping it authentic, down to earth, honest, and personal.

Not every great story is about some magnificent adventure, larger than life persona, or fearless men of action. Sometimes the most compelling stories emerge from the small moments in life— moments that could easily be overlooked or dismissed as ordinary. It’s here where we find the story. Through our films, we call attention to those very special ordinary moments.

 

Getting To Know You

Creating a personal wedding film begins before the big day. It involves us getting to know a bride and groom to learn about what they like to do on lazy Sundays, or that they start each day with a light jog, followed by half a cup of coffee. It means investing time in you—we chat, we laugh, we listen.


 

The Small Things

Whether you're a coffee aficionado on an endless quest for the perfect brew, an artist who loves making handcrafted gifts, or a bride with a barn themed wedding on your family farm, we celebrate the details that make you you. It’s the small things that help us craft something so much more personal and beautiful.

Our team is passionate about telling stories and we don’t mind going against the grain. We believe in simplicity over complexity, substance over trends, that cinematic isn’t synonymous with cliché, and ultimately that less is more. There’s a simplicity and honesty to our films. We shy away from heavy-handed techniques because we want the nuances of your day to shine through. After all, there’s enough personality and compelling stories on your day for it to speak for itself. We don't want to just tell a story. We want to tell your story.

Although we’ve been talking about ourselves quite a bit now, your big day won’t be about us. We like to keep things classy and tasteful, which means keeping a small footprint and melting into the background when we need to. We’re everywhere we need to be and nowhere we don’t so that you can focus on the things that matter.

 

“You go way over and beyond the job itself, to get to know each and every couple like we’re your longtime friends, to make us feel so comfortable and beautiful and special on our big days, to do whatever it takes to capture the unique essence of who we are and then spending countless hours thereafter weaving it into one amazing story that can be treasured forever.”
“We were so impressed when they set aside several hours to chat with us on a personal level to learn more about who we are and what made us happy. On the wedding day, they knew just what to say to us to calm us down. They directed us when necessary, but melted into the background during the important moments.”
“You guys were awesome to work with, and just the nicest, most genuine, humble and cool-as-cucumber guys in the biz...and I am so glad to have met you! I felt like we were friends, even though it was the first time we had physically met, and even after that 1.5 hour convo with you, we knew this was the best decision we had made hiring you guys. :)))”
