For the first time this year, I attended a wedding not as a vendor but as a guest. While I told myself I would try to enjoy myself, I just couldn’t help capturing the best wedding entrance and dance floor madness I’ve ever witnessed.

Teresa and Henry’s Extended Wedding Highlights Film

Hi Friends! I’ve been using Instagram for a while, but it’s time to make a friendly introduction because I want to know you better and give insight into my business. Most clients describe me as a hardworking and passionate entrepreneur, and my friends would agree, but they might also say I am a man-child who never grew up. I love my two kids who are responsible for first giving me the inspiration to pick up a camera and press record. Elise, currently age 5, helped me discover that there is an innate part in every person that wants to have a keepsake of all the special moments in their lives. So this was why I decided to open up my film business 2 years ago. I started off filming family events and then to weddings. My guy friends don't know this, but I love watching romantic dramas because I enjoy seeing how two people fall in love. As a wedding filmmaker, I get to meet new couples all the time and hear each one of their unique and amazing stories. Most weekends you’ll find me at Legoland chasing my crazy daughter around or at Teastation with my wifey who has to get her green milk tea boba fix. On special days where I get to have it my way, I enjoy pigging out on smores, crepes, macaroon ice cream sandwiches. I look forward to getting to know you more, so feel free to leave a comment just to say Hi. It’d make my day! Sincerely, Hai Owner of Elise Films ___ #TheInstagramPlan #INSTA180 ___ #hersunglassesonfleek #canon5dmarkiii #sigma50mmart
