Why do you want to work with APW Couples?
We’re an APW couple, married in 2012! The two of us make it a point to surround ourselves with other folks who are true to themsleves even in the face of naysayers/social conventions/stern mothers-in-law. We think the APW community rocks, and our jobs only get more exciting for us when we work with down-to-earth, joyous couples.
Describe your artistic approach to weddings?
Our first video project involved flying ourselves to Ethiopia to film a documentary about a topic-to-be-determined-once-we-landed. While we probably won’t be flying twenty hours to film your wedding sight unseen (though we’re totally up for that), the tenacity, logistics management, and focus on storytelling necessary to facilitate a documentary in the Horn of Africa are the same skills we utilize to film weddings.
David has a fine arts degree, while Briana has a background in sociology. As a husband and wife duo, we are lucky enough to posses complementary skill sets that make us a well-oiled filming team. The two of us get very excited every time we have an opportunity to capture all of the love, effort, details and people that concentrate in one place for a wedding.
What are your non-work-related hobbies?
We love to travel, read, get outside, and tinker with our cameras. We are boring (but also incredibly fortunate) in that our days would not look that drastically different if we suddenly found a pile of cash large enough to fund the rest of our lives and were free to spend our days exactly how we please.
What’s your favorite book?
David’s favorite: Into the Wild by Jon Krakaur (coincidentally Briana’s least favorite book). Brianas favorite: The Hobbit
What’s your favorite movie?
O Brother Where Art Thou?
If you could have a one minute dance party at your desk, what song would you pick?
Dance Party: We try to avoid dance parties at our actual work space, as we work with nice equipment, and our dancing traditionally involves a lot of flailing limbs. That being said, “Mr. Jones” by the Counting Crows is always a good flail-worthy song.
