About the Owner
Personal Bio: Its actually Kay-Lee, and I give my mom such a hard time for the way she spelled my name. I got my start 10 years ago, fresh out of college with a graphic design/advertising degree from the University of Nebraska. I landed a job as the marketing director for a wedding and events company that offered videography. Three months after accepting, the owner asked if I had interest in purchasing the business, and I jumped at the chance. What began as a marketing journey turned into a full blown career in video production. For 7 years I owned and operated a company in Nebraska shooting weddings, before relocating to the Emerald Coast in 2013. My background has given me the knowledge to shoot in all locations, from the beach to a church — I’ve experienced it all. I’ve learned how important video is to not only a wedding day, but to all important moments in our lives. The movement, the voices, and so many more memories than just a still image can capture. I love providing my couples with a timeless way to remember the most special day of their lives.
