oh hey! we're michael + brianne

Ontario based wedding+lifestyle filmmakers. 

We’ve been capturing life's important milestones since 2015 and are so grateful we’ve had the opportunity to create so many great memories with so many genuine people over the years. 

We met in 2012, our senior year of high school, and have been inseparable since. Back then you’d typically find us bonding over Tito’s pizza, puffs of Mary J and almost daily, late night walks on the SC Johnson trail under the stars. 

Now you can find us chasing around our bustling toddler, building our tiny house  (380sqft to be exact); and traveling across the country in search of our next big nature filled adventure. 

We love to create personality filled heirlooms for honest folk who love the outdoors and value connection as much as we do. 

a smidge about us:

As Creatives, We Take a Soulful Approach To Filmmaking
 

meet the peeps of solely love:

Yes, you can call us creatives. You can call us filmmakers. But at the end of the day, we're just a bunch of humans who feel deeply and love the little things life has to offer. That's why we're all about capturing whatever it is that makes your soul come alive:  Eating watermelon by the spoonful with your faves. Chillin' by the lake while the sun goes down. Rap battles in the car. Spontaneous dancing in the kitchen. All the real, raw, beautiful, weird, spontaneous, true-to-you things that bring out the big, authentic feels in you. No fake sh*t. Just realness. Because that's where the lasting memories are really at.

Check it: we value real human connection with you. 

If you're here with the intent of simply hiring a videographer, or with the mindset that we're a vendor and you're the client, perhaps we're not the best fit for each other. Because at the end of the day, having a real human connection with you is the single most important thing to us. Feeling connected will not only yield a fulfilling experience for everyone involved, but it guarantees an authentic, true to you film that you’ll have no regrets looking back on and watching in the future. Feeling connected will help you foster trust in our vision and keep you feeling confident, which will only produce awesome things when everything’s all said and done. Thats why we don't see you as "clients." We see you as family. 

So with that said, grab your fave snacks and chill for a bit. Let's snuggle up and get to know each other real good.

I guess you could say I’m an experience-aholic. Nothing lights my soul on fire more than experiencing every colorful thing life has to offer: culture, food, beautiful sights, music, literature and great people. Anything that makes me laugh, sparks inspiration or makes me want to be a better human is game in my books. 

I’m an INFP-T on the Meyers Briggs personality test. I’m a dark humor going, deglett date eating, Studio Ghibli watching, nature trekking, Mercy searching, silently laughing at memes at 3am while Michael and our daughter sleep beside me kinda person. 

Sarcasm, road trips and spelling your name properly are my love languages.

When I'm not filming or taking photos of cute lil beebs, typically you'll find me slung to Aubrey, lazing around in my sweats and greasy mom bun, snacking on something yum, cooking (I practically live in the kitchen), writing, imagining scenarios in my head, walking barefoot somewhere or criticizing Michaels crap cooking skills. Because let's be real here....... He seriously sucks at cooking (still is the love of my life tho). 

I also spend a lot of time researching scientific studies, because I'm a health and wellness nerd and am about to get certified as a holistic nutritionist and health coach. Super passionate about helping people with long standing health issues feel and look their best.

about brianne

What am I? Who am I? What do I do? It’s hard for me to describe myself. If you were to ask me this question in person, I’d probably scratch my head and stay silent. And then tell you the fluoride in your toothpaste is terrible for your health. Because it is. Here's some proof. 

I’m an INFJ-T on the Meyer’s Briggs personality test. That means I’m crazy (hahah I’m kidding! Or am I?) I love growing food in our garden, camping, wood stoves and fires; I’m a bit of a pyromaniac. If I were to sum this whole thing up into one word, it would be “fire.” Also, good quality food is a must (which is why I married Brianne. Tbh that’s the only reason why I married her).

Traveling, dinner dates and ROM COMS are my love languages.

When I’m not filming weddings, you’ll most likely find me at home chilling with Brianne and Aubrey, spooning watermelons by the lake while watching the sun set, working on our tiny house, pondering about God or screaming K-OS lyrics out loud with Brianne while driving somewhere. I’m practically always with Brianne. We go everywhere together. She’s my bestie 🤷‍♂️

Brianne's take on Michael drop down
Michael is honestly the most kind, genuine, loyal and hardworking guy there is. If you’ve seen The Last Kingdom series (both of our fave show btw), then Michael is the real Uhtred of Bebbanburg. For real. 

But don’t let his kind demeanor fool you. He’s got a secret sinister side and is extremely hilarious behind the scenes. Like, I’m talkin piss your pants funny. Like, I’m talkin gonna-die-from-lack-of-oxygen-please-stop-making-me-laugh kind of funny.

He’s also the clumsiest guy in the world. Especially when it comes to cooking. He’s about a level 2 on the cooking scale, not only because he’s got mediocre taste buds, but because he always messes something up. For example, one time he made soup and was so proud he didn’t mess anything up, only to find in the end that he “SOMEHOW ACCIDENTALLY” dropped a friggen knife in the pot and boiled it with the soup for an entire hour, plastic handle and all. What a surprise. 

And if you’re wondering.... Yes, we still ate the soup. Surprisingly, it wasn’t too bad.

michael's take on brianne

Brianne is hilarious. She’s very grounded and connected to the earth. She’s got a good sense of humor and loves to use up all my gas for car rides. Except I’m always the one driving, and she’s the one telling me where to go. 

Brianne will not spend money on clothes because she’s cheap and doesn’t think it’s worth it unless she finds $4 deals at Value Village or Winners when everything is out of season and priced at $3 a piece.

Brianne is indulgent and loves snacks, and can’t hold herself back when dates are near. She also loves quality time and will spend it like it’s the last day of your life. Oh yeah, and be prepared to have your food criticized because her food values are through the roof. If the consistency or texture or flavour is off, you fail. 

Now enough about us... We want to know about you! 

Let’s cut the small talk. We want to know everything. Your hopes and dreams. Your fave snacks. What makes your soul come alive. Whatever makes you, you, we want to be inspired by the people you are and make the best out of it. 

So if you feel a spark with us and our work, let us know! Whether you’re having an intimate outdoor wedding with your closest loves, an elopement on the edge of a cliff or even just hanging out at home making morning pancakes with the fam, we’re down to celebrate and capture you. Send us an email today and we’ll chit chat about your upcoming event. We’re looking forward to it!



say hey!
