I love my wife, family, dog, traveling the world, music, and coffee (lots and lots of coffee!)!
I was born and raised in Illinois where the creative arts surrounded my childhood. From singing in a boys choir, playing piano, and participating on and off the stage, I have always had the arts as a part of my life. I hold a masters degree in Production Management and for nearly 10 years I have been working in live entertainment production and national broadcast television for companies such as Home Shopping Network and The Walt Disney Company! I met my beautiful wife on a hot July day at a little place you may know called… Walt Disney World. We quickly bonded over our love of Disney, family, and dogs (we have a doggie son named Marvin)! Ever since that fateful July day, Kara and I have been inseparable.
Joining creative forces and starting Lens of Lenox Videography has been a dream come true. As a piano player and lover of music, my film editing style is and will always be deeply rooted in music. I’m the technology nerd of our duo and I love learning about new video equipment, lenses, and techniques!
I have always loved being behind a camera and find purpose and excitement in capturing your special day.
I am a California girl, who lived in a Florida world for a few years after graduating with my Business Marketing degree. Ok… let’s be real… after graduation, I ran away to work for Mickey Mouse! Ha! When I met my husband Drew, I knew I had found the person my soul was meant to match with.
The entirety of my career has been spent making events come to life, crafting communication, and ensuring clients are treated with the upmost care at companies such as IKEA and The Walt Disney Company.
Okay, let’s talk about one of my favorite things in the entire world. Weddings. I have always loved weddings and I will forever daydream about my time as a bride. As a recent bride myself, I understand the excitement, butterflies, and hours a couple spends on perfecting every detail of your special day. I firmly believe that weddings are pure joy, and will stop at nothing to ensure your day is captured and preserved for years to come.
In addition to capturing your most joy-filled day, I also take great pride in making you feel supported and taken care of as possible!
Drew knew for a very long time leading up to their proposal that he wanted to pop the question at their favorite place on earth... Disneyland! He planned an entire scavenger hunt through Disneyland and Disney's California Adventure for Kara, where she ultimately was led to Mickey's Fun Wheel, where Drew got down on one knee and asked Kara the most exciting question that would change their life forever!
We got married on a stunning (but, very windy) October day at Park Winters Inn in Winters, California surrounded by our very close friends and family. We truly had a fairytale wedding filled with whimsical and magical touches. One of our favorite moments of our wedding was our first look! It was such a special intimate moment for us to share before we met again at the end of the aisle to say our "i do's"!
