3rd Street Films is a boutique style
video studio producing cinematic wedding films.
Each couple goes through three phases of the wedding event: they
anticipate it, they experience, and their film allows them to relive the
moment. Our goal is to create an easy-to-watch film that lets them relive one of the most memorable days of their
lives. Stylistically, our work feels
more like a movie and includes natural audio from the day blended with music to
accept the days events. Our longest
films are only 30 minutes in length which makes it easy to show friends and
family and hopefully watch at least once a year on your anniversary.
did you get started?
As an artist, I started in college
selling paintings and continued to graduate with an art history degree. I remember I sold my first painting for $65
(that is a lot of money to a college student) and I bought a keg for a party
at my apartment. That was the first time
I experienced the thrill of creating art that emotionally connected with
someone to the point they were willing to pay for it. And as a wedding
filmmaker I am able to do this everyday.
is the best part about your job?
The best part of my job is to see the
reaction of the couple and their friends and family when they are watching
their video at the reception. They
laugh, they cry, they cheer, it is really great to see the smile on their faces
as they experience they day that just happened.
sets you apart from others in your industry?
When I was working for my dad at an
early age, he taught me to do the best job I can no matter what it was. At that time I was picking up trash outside
the family business, but I have carried that lesson over into my business. No matter the budget level, we do our best
job every step of the way. The extra effort isn’t generally something a couple
may notice, but I believe it is something they can feel while they watch the
