About six months ago I got an email. Rob wrote to tell me he wanted to shoot weddings. And he wanted me to tell him he wasn’t completely out of his mind. Gone completely loopy. Rob was high, high up in the advertising industry, so I could relate to both his concerns about his sanity as well as other things such a wish can affect in life. It’s not easy leaving a high paid job to follow your gut, to do something you feel have meaning. On paper it’s really simple, but in reality it scares you shitless.
I told Rob my story and how I am much happier person today than I ever was working in the advertising industry. I do something I truly enjoy and I also get to make other people happy.
I have found some sort of purpose.
I didn’t want to push Rob in any way, but I think my words struck a chord. I had a feeling Rob would go for it too.
And he did.
Boy did he ever.
Here’s what he did. This is his f i r s t wedding film – the story of an amazing couple and two great cultures coming together.
Here’s to following your heart.

Rob shot the week-long wedding with Jesse Tarnoff and Nick Markham who also did the editing and sound mixing.
