A Pippin Hill Wedding / Charlottesville Wedding Videographer


Alex and Payton..where do I begin....


This film, this couple, this location, the energy. Watch the film above to get a sense of what I mean. Tucked away on a vineyard in Charlottesville VA, Pippin Hill is a setting that offers a stunning landscape view of the mountains, rows of vines and a venue that is top notch. It is a working Vineyard during the day where guests come ready to get their tasting on and spread out blankets and have a picnic on their lawn. You can see how it's the perfect place for a wedding, it's nearly booked every weekend for good reason.


Alex got ready in the bridal suite which overlooks the vineyard and has great big windows and plenty of room to hang out with bridal party and is perfect for make up and hair. Captivating Complexion rocked the make up and Amy Aloope did her hair, both looked absolutely amazing without overdoing it. They were the sweetest on the day of and were so easy to work with.


Bri and Kara with Amore Events did an amazing job getting all these vendors together and designing the space. They actually both previously worked for Pippin Hill as their event coordinators so they have an intense knowledge of the space and what works and what doesn't. They branched off from Pippin Hill to start their own wedding planning business so they can service not only Pippin but other venues all around the Charlottesville VA area. They work so well together, its like two best friends who do fantastic work. You really can't go wrong with them as planners.


Being a wedding filmmaker means that I am constantly working alongside photographers on every wedding. Each photographer has their own unique approach and style as well as personality. My approach to filming is a photographers dream. I am unobtrusive and low key, I allow them their space to create their art and because I am respectful of them, they are in turn (usually) respectful of me and allow me to grab what I need. Becca with Becca B Photography was so fun to work with. She made my job so easy and captured the energy of Alex and Payton perfectly. I can't wait to be able to work with her again in the future.


From the ceremony on the lawn, to harnessing the power of the sudden thunderstorm that rolled through to an impromptu dance off at the reception, this wedding was so fun. It is a favorite of many who visit my site. "I love the Pippin Hill film!" Its a beautiful blend of fun playful energy and elegance and emotion.
