Samaritan’s Purse - Cambodia
Samaritan’s Purse is a International Relief organization based out of Boone, NC. We’ve had the pleasure of shooting with them over the last couple of years and absolutely love working with their team. Every job is a new adventure.
This time, I had the opportunity to document SP’s work with expectant mothers in remote villages, from basic cooking and hygiene workshops to the building of Maternity Wards at the local Health Centers. The video was part of the 10 Days for M’Dai Campaign which is going on now.
Cambodia is a beautiful country, it’s full of the nicest people you’ll ever meet and the food is incredible. While we were there, we were able to experience the busy streets of Phnom Penh, quiet villages in the Kratie Province and breathtaking sights at Angkor Wat.
I was incredibly happy to once again be able to partner with Samaritan’s Purse for this trip.
Here are a couple of screengrabs from our time in Cambodia.
Happy Monday Everyone!
We love it when we can spotlight one of our brides, especially when it involves really beautiful design! You may remember our film for Maria and Jack's mountain wedding that we posted a while back. Maria and her friend Maria (yes, you read that right same name!) have started a beautiful wedding branding and design company called, Mia Maria Design. Their work is absolutely gorgeous, and we wanted to share their new website with all of you!
Here is a little more about Mia Maria Design, straight from the source…
"We are two girls with the same name, nickname, and love for great design. We dig deep into a couple’s story to do much more than just print a pretty invitation or create fancy favors. We promise to bring love stories to life through the cohesive, custom design and details essential for creating an unforgettable guest experience."
Check out some of their gorgeous work!

Erin and Jonathan | Asheville, NC
You guys, I have probably the sweetest and most unique wedding we have ever filmed to share with you all today! When Erin and Jonathan asked us to be a part of their Movie themed wedding at the Deerpark Restaurant at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, we knew we were in for a really fun day! From the popcorn machine, to the 3D glasses handed out to each guest as they arrived, to the movie soundtrack processional each element of their day was full of Erin and Jonathan’s personality and most importantly love. We had a great time working with photographer Jennifer Callahan, and we hope you all love the finished product as much as we do. Thanks to Erin and Jonathan for letting us be a part of their big day!
Danielle and Matthew | Highlands, NC
Danielle and Matthew are a beautiful couple we had the privilege to work with this past October, and we loved their idea for a small, intimate wedding ceremony at the Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, NC followed a couple days later by a big reception with all their friends and family at Byron’s Southend here in Charlotte. Isn’t Danielle’s dress AMAZING? Also who doesn’t love a wedding band called Mr. Potato Head and a glow stick send off? Needless to say, I think their reception was a pretty good time. We had so much fun working with all the other vendors for this wedding. Congrats to Matthew and Danielle! We hope you love their wedding film as much as we do.
Ceremony Venue: Old Edwards Inn
Reception: Byron’s Southend
Music: Mr. Potato Head

Amber and Stacey | Gerton, NC
To say that Amber and Stacey had a fun wedding, would probably be an understatement. Held at the Laughing Waters Retreat outside Asheville, we loved being a part of this enchanted wedding in the woods. Amber and Stacey’s family and friends came together to make this gorgeous, bohemian wedding a reality. I just love their unity painting, the wedding march to the reception, and all the joy and love that exudes from this couple. Thanks to photographer Jen Yuson for being a blast to work with! Congratulations Amber and Stacey!
Nadesha and Paul | Charlotte, NC

This beautiful couple are a true joy and we had so much fun filming their day. Congratulations Nadesha and Paul!
