Brian and Chelsea’s Wedding – LPGA – Daytona Beach, Orlando Wedding Videographer

Brian and Chelsea Wedding Trailer

I’m not sure where to start in describing this wedding.  In the midst of being professional and doing my thang, this couple and their bridal party had me laughing throughout most of the afternoon and evening while covering their wedding.  I started by getting some establishing shots of the venue and then proceeded to covering Chelsea and her girls getting ready.  From there, I moved to capturing Brian and the guys and was in laughter most of the time.  Brian is a great guy with a great sense of humor and that makes covering the wedding that much more fun.  You’ll see what I’m saying as you watch the trailer below.  There’s also a small bloopers reel at the end – so make sure you check that out as well.  Enjoy!


Will & Serina Rahming’s Wedding Trailer

Will and Serina Rahming Wedding

I had a great time recently capturing Will and Serina’s wedding on video.  The girls were gathered in the Imperial Suite at the Daytona Beach Shores Resort and Spa room and make up and hair was taking place there.  I arrived a little earlier than usual as I wanted to make sure I captured some footage of everyone getting ready as well as capturing some audio of the bridesmaids speaking about Serina and Will.  From there, we moved to the Casements in Ormond Beach to capture the guys getting ready and this was also where the ceremony was at as well.  Following the ceremony and formal pictures, we moved on over to the Oceanside Country Club in Ormond where they had their beautiful reception.  I also had a great time working along two fantastic photographers, Dan and Kimberly from Our Day Wedding Photography.

Below is their highlight film from the day!  Enjoy!

Capturing the Bride on Video

I have just finished up another wedding this past weekend, captured on video at the Daytona Beach Shores Resort and Spa, the Casements in Ormond Beach, and the beautiful Oceanside Country Club in Ormond Beach.  I’ll have video online shortly, but in the meantime, I’m gathering all of the footage that was captured and beginning to organize everything so it all makes sense and I know what’s where (i.e. guys getting ready, bridal prep, pics outside, ceremony, toasts).  With over 100GBs of footage, there’s a lot to go through and organize – but once it’s complete, I can start rocking and rolling through the film.

While I can use both Final Cut Pro X and Adobe Premiere (yes, I’m on a Mac baby!) – I prefer to use Premiere and below are a couple of screen shots of beginning to set everything up, create multi-cam sequences, etc.

Carl & Charnele Baker’s Wedding Trailer – Orlando Heaven Events Center

Carl and Charnele Wedding - Orlando Heaven Events Center - Orlando Wedding Videography

I had the pleasure recently of working with two beautiful individuals and their families, capturing their special day on video.  Carl and Charnele were married at the gorgeous Heaven Events Center in Orlando and it was a joy to be there with them throughout the day.

My team and I started out capturing details of the Events center and then moved to begin filming both the girls and guys getting ready.  While doing that, I also was able to grab some individual audio from various family members and be able to have this play throughout the video, giving the video more feel and emotion.

Below is a highlight reel from their special day and I was honored to be selected to capture their memories!

Family Session at Cracker Creek


Ahhhh kids.  I love being around them!  With two boys of my own (who are much older than this cute little guy), these are the times and moments that I miss with them.

I met up with this little cutie and his mom out at Cracker Creek in Port Orange to do some fun family photos.  Some families tend to lean towards the posed shots, but I’m the type that I like to do a little of both (posed and candid) – and actually more candid shots when they are this young.  Sometimes it’s best just to let them run and I’ll snap and grab what I can during our time together, which is exactly what we did!  :)

We started out in a little patch of shade there on the grounds and then walked around the area while I walked along with my camera in hand.  He was funny in the sense that at times he would come up to me and grab my hand and lead me along where he wanted to go.  We also noticed a large peacock in the area which caught his attention and it was during this time that I got (what I feel) were some of the best shots of the session.

Below are some samples images from the session with oodles more that Mom will be receiving.  Have a great day everyone!

Kicking off the New Year – Video Centric

James Shuler VIdeography

I’m excited about 2016 and looking forward to all of the wonderful couples, families, Seniors, etc. that I will be working with this year.  I have numerous weddings booked for videography throughout the year already and I’m already booked a few for 2017 as well.

As 2016 rolls along, this year will be more video centric in terms of my focus.  As many of you know (or may not know), I’ve stepped away from the wedding photography platform entirely and will be concentrating my efforts moving forward entirely on video for weddings.  There are so many photographers in the field right now and video has been a passion of mine that has a much stronger tug on me than wedding photography – so that is what I will be doing completely moving forward (on the wedding side of things).  I will still be having a blast on the beach shooting beach portraits, working with families for family portraits, and Senior for Senior images – but again, as far as wedding photography – count this DaddyMac out.  I’ll be happy to refer you to many others though!

I’ll also be working, as long as I can squeeze in my crazy schedule, to do a lot more video posts.  Many have enjoyed that in the past and I’ll be utilizing Instagram much more this year also.  My social media accounts are at the top of this page and you can follow me from there.

Again – thank you to everyone for a wonderful 2015 and you’ll see me jammin out this year for 2016!  Have a great week everyone!

AJ & Lindsey Henderson Wedding – LPGA International


There’s nothing better than celebrating with two people getting married on their special day!  I captured AJ and Lindsey’s wedding this past weekend on October 10th, and had a great time during their wedding snapping away throughout the day and evening.  And hey, what photographer do you know that gets on the dance floor with the bride and groom during the Cupid Shuffle.  Yeah baby!  This guy right here!  LOL!

I’m still working on wrapping up their images, but in the meantime, enjoy this cute little video I put together highlighting their wedding day!
