Kathryn,

It is hard for me to put into words how appreciative, grateful, and in awe I am of not only your work but who you are as a person. Working with you has been such a pleasure. When Kalebh and I made the decision to elope, I knew the people I surrounded myself with on that amazing day would be very important to me. The peace and comfort that we experienced is something I will never forget. Thank you for being who you are and kicking ass as a videographer!

Please keep in touch. I will cherish this film forever!

HOW ARE YOU SO GOOD AT WHAT YOU DO?
We love every second of it!!! I love that you put our vows in it — the most important parts of them to me too and you didn’t even know that!! So much laughter paired with so many tears. It is absolutely perfect and I am prettyyy picky about video and photo editing and your work is beyond anything I could have even hoped for. THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH for capturing our day so perfectly. ❤️❤️❤️❤️
Maddy is just balling her eyes out watching it hahah. She is over the moon 🌙

Sneak Peek Video - Amanda + Maddy

This is my happy place.

Where both laughter and tears come easily and willingly.

Where the love and admiration people have for one another is shared graciously, with no bounds and no restrictions.

Where joy and sentiment are one in the same.
Because that is where all of life's "good stuff" is kept.

This is what Amanda and Maddy's wedding day was like.

I can honestly barely hold back tears writing this and looking back on that day.

I spent most of the day running around like a chicken with my head cut off, an umbrella stuck in my backpack to keep me covered from the continual waves of rainfall. But, even amidst that, I had laughed hard and cried frequently alongside everyone on that mountaintop, and I left with the hope to share life with others even more openly than when I had arrived.

I hope their film does the same for you.

Just a short little teaser of Amanda and Maddy's full wedding film to come.

Oh my god. You chose all of the perfect moments. I am so in love with it. I’ve already watched it twenty times. You’re amazing. THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! AHHH!! Thank you for not only delivering our sneak peek super fast but for making it everything we couldn’t even imagine because it’s that good. We appreciate you and are excited to have you in our world.

Why I offer RAW footage to my couples

Why I offer RAW footage to my couples

Evergreen Era Films at work

What is RAW footage?

RAW footage is all of the unedited video files, straight from the camera. It does not include any post production work like color grading, stabilization, slow motion, etc.


So here's the thing - I started out my career as a photographer. And as a photographer, providing the unedited photos to your clients would be the silliest thing. It would, in theory, be a "worse" version of the final image. Pointless right?
When I began shooting video I took this idea with me. My first year in business I didn't offer RAW footage at all and I also couldn't understand why any other videographers would give away the unedited footage they took. I truly thought that as a creative, we should only provide our best work to our clients. Therefore the unedited footage is just the first step of the process - why would I ever give someone that?

But, with time and experience comes new knowledge, and for this I am very thankful.

Throughout that first year of business I started to notice that I continually had some footage that didn't quite fit in the stylized short films I created for my couples. They wouldn't fit for many reasons including things like the clips being too long, not fitting with the flow of emotions I was creating, or simply not having enough time to include them in amidst everything else.

I began to realize that these moments are things that a couple might really enjoy having to remember their day by. Even though they aren't perfect, when it comes down to it, they are their memories, plain and simple. I set my ego aside as a creative and decided that this was a service I could provide to better care for my couples and to more fully preserve their wedding day experience. Plus I still get to create the beautiful, flowing, emotional films that I'm proud of. In my opinion it was a win-win choice.

Here's a response I got from one of our brides:

I wanted to holla out and let you know that we went through our raw footage drive yesterday and are so grateful we have a copy of these clips! They are all like little home movies of our day, and they go so much farther beyond the cinematic film + all of our photos to really give a peek into the vibe we were in on our day. Thank you once again for sharing your gift with us, and for giving us this immortalized look at the happiest day of our lives to cherish and re-live forever <3
