hi, hey, HELLO!

I'M nick!

A little about me

        I come from a family of lion tamers. I grew up hearing stories about my grandpa. From swimming into flooded California waters to rescue full grown mountain lions to getting calls from the local PD to come pick up a stray lion being held by biker gangs; they were always action packed and mind blowing. My parents would always say that the only thing that could get me to sit still was turning on Chitty Chitty Bang Bang for hours on end. Movies and books became a pillar of my childhood. From a young age I was hooked on storytelling.

        As I grew older, I would hear more and more of my family’s past and began to build an interest in documentary style filmmaking. While I ended up furthering my education by becoming an Engineer, this paved the way for me to be a better filmmaker. These combined interests have helped develop me into a creative that cares deeply about story without ever compromising the technically beautiful and detail abundant side of film.

"The greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return"

I LOVE that we're all different. None of us grew up in the exact same cultures, families or places. Our environment shapes who we are and it is my mission to capture that very essence as the two of you join together as one. No matter your outlook on life, I want to tell your love story the way that it deserves.

CATCH ME OUTSIDE; HOW BOUT' THAT?

I picked up the guitar around the age of 12. My dad saw how interested in the video game, 'Guitar Hero' I was and surprised me on my birthday with a beautiful red electric guitar. I remember playing that thing for HOURS on end (mostly the intro riff for Sweet Child O' Mine (my sisters loved me for it lol)). From starring in lead roles for our school musical productions to playing out with some of my greatest friends; music has always played an important role in my life.

When I'm not enjoying the sweet sound of music, you can catch me outdoors. Nothing is as freeing to me as disconnecting from the day to day hustle as walking out into the woods and pitching a tent. I live for moments like these and hope to share some of these experiences with you!

When I'm Not Filming

what inspires me

BEHIND THE LENS

I'm inspired by The places I travel & the PEOPLE I MEET

THE PLACES: When I graduated college back in 2017, I jumped in a tiny Nissan hatchback with my best friend and drove across the western United States backpacking in national parks along the way. This trip set me off on a path that I will always be grateful for. I grew up weighted to my home state, but this journey opened my eyes to a depth of human experience & culture that I had not yet shared. Ever since, I've been hooked on traveling. Every chance I get, I'm looking to expand my experiences and try new things. I find growth in discomfort and will never stop pushing myself into new horizons.

THE PEOPLE: I believe that the people we surround ourselves with dictate who we will become. I've been SO lucky to have grown up around such a great support system of people who love me deeply. Looking back at old home videos of my childhood brings me pure joy. Losing loved ones hurts, but having those memories captured in film takes me right back. This, to me, is the most important reason to have these special moments captured on film.

These few clips are from my parent's wedding video. The quality has come a long way since then but I'm still happy to connect with the memories just the same

While my wardrobe has improved slightly over time; my dance moves have not.

"When I met you I knew an adventure was going to happen."

  • BEFORE:  I strive to learn more and more about the couples I serve and how to best tell their stories. It's not about what I "want" the story to be; rather, uncovering who each and every couple is to their core. What is your vibe? What inspires you? What drives you? Who are the people and what are the experiences that make you, YOU? These are the questions I am most interested in so that I may craft your personalized film.

  • DAY(S) OF: First things first; COFFEE! Big fan, HUGE fan of that sweet sweet energy nectar. Once I'm up and running, I thrive in the high pressure situations that traditional weddings can become but I want to be sure I'm matching your energy. If you're feeling like dialing things back and chilling, I'm ready to meet you at that level.

  • AFTER: Picture a mad scientist in his laboratory. I've always had trouble relaxing knowing there's work to be done. Anytime I finish shooting a wedding, the ONLY thing on my mind is the edit. There's something wildly exciting to me about sifting thru the footage of a wedding day. Piecing together your story is an intense puzzle and I'm always up for the challenge!

HE WAS VERY RESPECTFUL TO ALL OF OUR GUESTS, AND WORKED SO WELL WITH OUR PHOTOGRAPHER. NICK CAPTURED EVERYTHING WE WANTED AND PULLED IT ALL TOGETHER TO MAKE THE MOST INCREDIBLE VIDEOS FOR US.
