Perhaps no greater moment in our lives than when we discover that one person who we can be ourselves with. We shine with them, and they with us!

I had so much fun filming this wedding! Arody (a wonderful wedding photographer from Mexico) was renewing her vow’s with her love Piero in their hometown of San Luis Potosi, Mexico.
Arody & Piero wanted a film that would match-up with their style, their sensibility, and would reflect their love back! They had hired one of the best photographers you could ever hire, an artist Fer Juaristi who if I recall correctly pointed the couple to my website. Thank you my friend! Arody & Piero called tweeted me and well within days they booked me to fly down to witness their vows renewed at the heart warming Hacienda Vallumbroso
This film clip is only a short highlight that is more emotive than purely representative of every aspect of their wedding day which I have in their keepsake DVD that is private and theirs!

The leftover film sitting around post wedding was well used…incy bits of unused film tied together to make a 2min keepsake for my generous hosts – thanks guys, hope you like this!

California twin sisters, Gabriela & Isabela along with their Mom, Dad, and Grandma share a late afternoon together horseback riding in the valley’s of Riverside, CA.
I am a believer in documenting life’s moments…
Allow me to share a personal realization. Not too long ago (in fact December 1st was that day) I lost my father to cancer, and now ALL I look for are the memories… moments together doing stuff that families do, and for whatever reason connect deeply and a bit more viscerally on film. There is something very special to super 8mm film… it allows for the heart and mind to drift and dream! You feel as much as you see…

When New York City couple Robyn & Colin contacted me to film their wedding this past summer I was beyond excited as NYC has a very big place in my heart. The sweetest realization was when Robyn reminded me that not too long ago I had filmed her sister’s wedding!
What followed and I will now paraphrase her, “Naz! My Mom and I still to this date sit and cry (the good kind) over the super 8 wedding film that you made for Kim” Robyn added that her planner shared a list of local NYC super 8 filmmakers and yet both her and mom kept coming back to my website…flattered, honoured, smiling, excited…it all just felt great!
Robyn booked me on the spot over the phone, and a few months afterwards I flew down to film this engagement lifestyle film. I hope everyone likes it! Inquire for more information by clicking here. Small confession, this is also a tiny ode to the city i ADORE, New York, New York!
