Filmmaker. Photographer. Storyteller.

    When you look at other  videographers, rarely will you find the person behind the camera. Too often, videography companies will outsource their videographers, their editors, and their producers. That doesn't work for me, because my films thrive on a key element: relationships. My relationship with my clients, your relationships with your friends, your family and with each other.  And lastly, our relationships with your vendors: your photographer, your planners, your florists. I work closely and honestly with everyone involved in your day to set myself up for success, to be a dependable craftsman, and to capture the beautiful moments within.

    Making films is about telling stories. That's why I created Monroe Films: to be a storyteller. I'm not just another wedding boutique staffing your wedding day, and I don't think you're just another client. I'm humbled to be a part of your wedding, and it is my honor to create the most authentic film for your day.  

    With every wedding film, I want to make you laugh, cry, and smile every time you watch any film of ours. I believe that your wedding is one of the most important days of your lives, I strive to represent that in each and every film. It's something that I remind myself of at the start of every wedding. Passion, craft, and creativity are the ingredients that will make your wedding video the best wedding film you could ever see.

    I have spent many years of my life cultivating this craft to tell your story. That means being present in every moment, knowing when to step in and when to step back, letting magic unfold. My films are cinematic and story driven; image and sound is tightly woven into custom score from independent musicians, and I shoot on only the best equipment for the job. I've been making films for almost 10 years now, and I've probably seen well over 200 weddings.

 

    When I'm not filming weddings, I photograph and film commercial, documentary, and narrative projects at www.ethanmsigmon.com. In my time off, you might find me on my bike, in the gym, getting another stamp in my passport, or simply enjoying my time with my family, my friends, and my dog, Banksy.
