Cancer Charity – Dream Chaser Foundation

About a month ago I filmed the funeral of a little boy who lost is battle with cancer. Since then his parents have been super busy setting up a charity to help others in need. So I was stoked to be able to film a promo video to front their charity.

This film was inspired by Chace himself. He loved the colour yellow and balloons had a strong presences at his funeral. So I wanted to make sure this film had his stamp on it and reflected a bit about who he was.


Just a few thank you’s.
Loren, Zavier, Sione, Sahara and Jayden. You’re all stars! It’s a lot harder than it looks and you all nailed it! Well done.
And a big thanks to Chris and Jeremy at The Scorelocks Collective. Awesome music score. It fits perfectly to the mood and vibe of the film. Thanks again!
And to Felix Wu for assisting me on this shoot. I needed it!

Auckland Wedding Videographer: Stu and Tiffany’s Wedding Video

Stu and Tiffany’s wedding had a little bit of everything in it!

The most poetic cake cutting EVER! (Shot Stu!) An amazing dress, an ‘emosh’ dog with big eyes, a convey van, and one big boggie to end the night on!

One of my favorite shots of this video was the wedding dress in the tree on Tiffany’s back yard. It was taken at 9 in the morning. I was quite stoked I arrived early, as I re-checked the shot at 11am out of curiosity. The sun had moved on and the shot just wouldn’t of worked.

It combine’s two things I’ve learn’t over the years. If you see an awesome shot (especially with nature) don’t think it will be there later as quite often the weather changes, or you get caught up doing something else and end up missing it. And secondly, most of the cool moments don’t happen in the middle 8 hours of the day. It’s the less formal times of the day when people are relaxed and personality comes out.

For Stu and Tiffany’s wedding this was after the formal speeches during the ‘cake speech’ and later that evening when everyone let their hair down and really got their boogie on!

Stu and Tiffany you guys were a blast to be around. Thanks for letting us both Film and Photography your day. It was such a privilege.

You can check out their awesome wedding photos here.

The wedding was held at St George’s Anglican Church and reception at Mantells Mt Eden.

Auckland Wedding Videographer – Bill + Erin’s Wedding Video

Part of the privilege of videoing weddings is being able to get a glimpse into peoples lives. It’s being able to see the values people hold and the importance and meaning behind what happens.

One thing stands out with Bill and Erin. It’s how “family” everything is. Their whole wedding day was centered around including and respecting their closest family and friends. And even if the kids cringed at the romance of it all, everyone was included!

And Bill, I know your a bit shy but your personal vows were the best. I love the romance! Thanks so much for letting me video your wedding day. ;-)
