We are Beau and Karen a husband and wife videography duo. This is our full time job since 2010 and we take what we do very seriously. We have been married for the past 14 yrs and we have a daughter, her name is Ava. She is not only beautiful but she is kind, sensitive, spirited and always keeps us on our toes! We both grew up and lived in Minnesota all our lives, but in 2013 we moved our little family and business to sunny Arizona. We were super excited for the change and we are loving it!
Before getting into the videography business, Beau grew up in a family owned area rug business, and let me tell you, he LOVED it. During that time he developed an eye for color and design. He was really disappointed when they had to close their doors when the recession hit after 9/11. He then went onto many different jobs, nothing was satisfying until a friend of ours turned him onto the new up and coming wedding film industry. Beau was blown away at the possibilities that were now available. He delved in with both feet and hasn’t looked back.
I(Karen) had been a Cosmetologist for 12 years, specializing in haircuts and formal updo’s, and often my Saturdays were spent on location getting the wedding parties and brides ready for their big day. The last 3 years that I did hair I had my own state registered salon in our home. I loved it but I was wanting to do something different. At that same time, Beau needed a second shooter. So, with my creative eye and Beau’s technical experience with cameras, eMotion Cinematography was born.
We both run the business together. Beau will be the one who you will mostly deal with, especially when you first reach out to us. He is also the color corrector and audio specialist, and edits the ceremonies and speeches. I will answer emails from time to time but I do most of the editing when it comes to making the films. I know the film is not perfect if I haven’t gotten the goose bumps or cry at least somewhere in time in the film. So until this happens I keep tweaking it!
Our objective for your wedding day is to make sure your day runs smoothly, capture those special moments and be as unobtrusive as humanly possible. We put so much thought and effort through the whole process to make the best film possible because we realize that nothing can capture the emotion and energy of such an important day like a well done video! We want you to have something you want to watch over and over and over again and to hand down for your children to watch for generations to come!
Thank you for looking into eMotion Cinematography for one of the most unique and special days of your life!
