We believe in love; immovable, whole hearted, life changing love. The kind that can put a smile on your face or a lump in your throat. That will see you through the days, both good and bad. A love, just like yours. We’re Heart Stone Films, and we create moving imagery about people and the special times in their lives — films that are as unique and fresh as those they’re about.

Things you’d write home to your Momma about: We’ve had the honor of capturing some beautiful weddings that have been featured on Southern Weddings, E! Online, People, ESPN, Fox Sports, NBC Sports, US Weekly, etc. It’s an honor to have our work and the beautiful stories we’ve told shared with such a big audience. Over the years we’ve won some awards: Best Videography, Bride’s Choice, Best of Weddings, and Telly Awards.
How we got into weddings: We started capturing love stories like yours just shortly after getting married in 2008. After praying about our future and hoping to one day own a production studio, we started the journey together as a husband and wife team! Over the years we have grown and trained an awesome team of filmmakers to serve more families and capture more love stories! For us, this has never been simply a job, our desire has always been for relationships and to create films that have an impact on couples’ and families’ lives beyond their wedding day. Our hope is that each wedding film will serve as a tool to help you build and maintain a strong marriage.
Favorite thing about weddings in the South? The beauty, charm, timeless elegance, and pure romance.
Best piece of advice you can give to brides and grooms? If you aren’t writing your own vows, write each other a note to open while you are getting ready, or better yet, groom’s: give an amazing toast to your new wife at the reception! Hire a planner and professionals, this is one of the most important days of your lives that you will want to relive and remember forever!
