Who We Are & How We Create

Heartline Films

Your Unique Story

The Magic and Wonder of You

Like you, we’re all about going our own way.

And we bring that originality and creative touch to every one of our films.

But what truly makes our films unique and special
isn’t really us

—it’s you.

Your Story | Our Style

The Big, Small, and In-Between Moments

We capture the big, once-in-a-lifetime moments you’ll never want to forget.

But, we also keep our eyes open for the small, candid moments you don’t want to miss and never could have planned for:

The look on your partner’s face as you walk down the aisle. The joyful yet nervous jitters as you and your best friends get ready. Or the laughter and tears that fill the room as you say, “I do.”

Your Experience | Our Approach

The Best Day Ever

You can feel confident that your wedding and your memories are in good hands. We care about the level of service you receive, we always communicate quickly and kindly, and we take the time to connect and build a friendship with you.

When your day arrives, we’ll introduce ourselves to your wedding party and immediate family. And we’ll make it clear that you don’t need to pretend, pose, or worry about us being in your face. Soak in each moment, be yourselves and have a blast.

5/5

GENUINE & CREATIVE

“They’re both so open to ideas that whatever we were thinking, they took that and ran with it. Giving them the creative freedom to capture and put it all together was the best decision.”

Blake H.

5/5

KIND & HARDWORKING

“They captured all of our favorite moments all while being discrete and out of the way. I received many compliments about how kind and hardworking they were.”

The People Behind the Cameras

The opportunity to help you remember and relive your wedding day
is not only fulfilling, but it’s also incredibly fun.

In fact, we can’t imagine ourselves doing anything else.

A Little More About Kevin

Since the moment a camera first landed in my hands back in 2007, filmmaking hasn’t just been something I do; it’s part of my DNA. My journey through film school turbocharged my love for crafting visual narratives, but it was capturing a friend’s wedding that flipped the script for me – I discovered my calling: wedding films.

Being front and center on one of the most joy-packed days of your life? That’s my kind of thrill. It’s a rush to harness my fervor and know-how to forge a film that’s not just watched but felt, letting you relive every high and heartfelt moment.

FUN FACTS:

  • I’m a roller coaster junkie with a season pass to the adrenaline rush – the bigger the drop, the better.
  • Disney isn’t just a place; it’s my vibe. I’m all about that magic and imagination.
  • I’m rocking the same Enneagram type as Walt Disney himself (9w1: The Dreamer) – crafting dreams into reality is just what we do.

A Little More About Haley

Who would’ve guessed that the one class I pegged as naptime in college would turn out to be the game-changer? Documentary film didn’t just keep me awake; it sparked a full-blown revolution in my world. It was during my junior year at film school that I crossed paths with Kevin, who taught me how to shoot and edit weddings.

Fast forward 7 years and here we are, a dynamic duo capturing the whirlwind of emotions that is a wedding day. I’m all in for the rush, the love-tinted chaos that unfolds as two hearts tie the knot.

FUN FACTS:

  • I’ve walked the magical paths of Walt Disney World as a Cast Member, sprinkling a little pixie dust along the way.
  • Embracing the wild ride of motherhood has been my greatest adventure, teaching me the art of living in the moment and savoring the joy in every bit of chaos.
