Well my name is Dustin Blake and I am a wedding filmmaker. If this is your first time to our site or you haven't seen our work before forget everything you know about wedding videography and free your mind here. I am a dad / dreamer / director / editor and video game junkie. I pride myself on taking risks and going against the norm. Wedding videos are my life. I pretty much eat, sleep and breath them. I feel truly blessed to be able to do something I love, day in and day out. If it wasn't for cool couples like yourself I have no idea where I would be. If you like what you see or you just want something completely different feel free to contact me. Im a person and sell myself as an artist not a nerdy wedding videography company. I can't wait to chat!
I LOVE shooting weddings. Each one is unique as the two of you. Because each film is made from scratch The average delivery time is usually 10-12 months on the full length feature and only 4-6 weeks on your highlight/trailer. We don’t like to deliver anything that is sub par, so your patience is appreciated!
Music is everywhere , its what inspires us and provides the foundation for a great wedding video. We welcome your song choices in most cases but take great pride in searching for fresh new music that we feel fits a particular “look and feel”. 99% of our work on this site contains music chosen by us.
Because we only reserve a limited number of weddings per month (2) we only share our pricing over the phone or at our studio with couples that are just as excited as we are. Doing so you will get a sense of who we are and determine if we are the right studio to produce your wedding film. Fill out our contact page to see if your date is available.
We strive for each wedding video to be as unique as our couples. Each film is handcrafted from scratch and constructed with influences from your day. Wedding videography doesn’t have to be boring. With the right amount of creative flare and story telling, your video will be one of a kind. It is our promise.

Easy going , sweet and considerate is how I would describe Mandy and Drew. They said their I do’s on the beautiful beach of Pensacola Florida in front of one hundred and fifty of their closest friends and family. It was a good time had by all. Staying at the Hotel Margaritaville and reception held at the Land Shark the celebration continued all night long thanks to the Black Jackets. Shooting shotgun on the stills was the super cool Posh Images. Check out their trailer below and don’t forget to like and share!
This is most likely your first wedding you have planned. The are so many variables you need to consider but where to start Well here are the top 5 regrets most couples have after its too late.
#5 – Ceremony location was too far from my reception.
This happens more than ever. Your doing your prep at one place. Travelling to another spot for your ceremony and then travelling again to your reception. Most couples that had their reception more than 20 mins from their ceremony said they hated all the commuting. Also out of towners got lost or disoriented. As a wedding videographer I know that if we are driving more than we are filming your really missing a lot of creative time for photos and video.
#4 – Wish we weren’t so obsessed with not seeing each other before the ceremony.
Doing a “First Look” is such a great way to create content and shake all the butterflies. The groom is still going to see you coming down the aisle with your father. It is still going to be just as grand and epic as it normally is. There is no way you could take anything away from that moment I promise. When the ceremony starts its going to be all formal. You two wont be able to talk , laugh or have any intimate moment like you will from doing a fist look. It also creates time to get all your portrait stuff shot as well as some creative video set ups. If your having a late ceremony in the fall or winter months, seriously re think doing a first look.
#3 – We should have spent more money on a great photographer
After all your flowers have withered away. Your expensive dress is in a box stored in the closet. Your band or dj are long gone. Your only going to have two take aways from it all and thats your photo and video. Place priority in your budget to book a great tog and cinematog. The day is going to fly by.
#2 – We should have slowed down and enjoyed the day.
There is plenty of time before your big day to freak out and be a bridezilla. But on your wedding day…just chill, smile and enjoy it. Its your only shot. The couples that focused on all the little details say that they feel they missed the whole experience all together.
and the #1 regret and most important to me
#1 We wish we had a video of the wedding.
Most couples that never hired a videographer to shoot their wedding said the were not aware of how much wedding films have evolved. They never knew how completely bad ass it is to share your day with family and friends who could’t make it to the wedding.
If you had a choice to see your great great grandparents wedding. Would you rather look at photos or hear their vows and see their movements?
Bottom line is that if you place a high priority on your video and photo’s . Keep your locations close as possible and don’t be worried about seeing one another beforehand. You will then in turn create the perfect storm for an epic wedding film and great pictures. I promise you won’t regret it.
When Rachel contacted me to shoot her hubby coming home from the war I was honored at the opportunity. Josh provided us footage from his company while they were over seas and I mixed it with their web cam videos they sent to one another. I wanted to tell the story of what couples go through during this long time apart and how patience and trust see them through. I hope you enjoy.
