Ben + Nina

Wow, I've never seen two people more in love! Not only for each other but for their loved ones as well!

Ben and Nina are from Australia and always wanted to travel to Hawaii. They strategically planned to get married on Maui so they could visit this tropical paradise and bring their loved ones with them. One of the most touching moments of the night was when Ben got up and said a few words to everyone around the table. He brought up how important it is to raise your kids right and thanked his parents and Nina's for a job well done. Even though Nina's father had passed away before their special day you could tell his presence was there in spirit.

The Olowalu Plantation house was the perfect backdrop for such a beautiful night under the stars. Thank you so much Ben and Nina for inspiring all of us to love whole heartedly!

New Zealand Travel Film

Back in June, my wife Christine and I flew a couple thousand miles to the land of snowcapped mountains, endless beaches, and magnificent waterfalls. We flew a total of 13,040 miles and drove 2,450 miles during our trip. Some would say that isn't a vacation. A vacation should be relaxing by the pool and drinking a cocktail, Christine and I don't take normal vacations.

In order to see New Zealand properly, you have to take a road trip. The endless miles seem to disappear when the landscape changes dramatically every 5 minutes. The North and South islands are both unique and offer different experiences for different people. Taking a tour of Lake Wakatipu in Queenstown, watching seals play on the beach, and hiking 12km in the Abel Tasman National Park, where some of the highlights from the south island. Highlights from the north island included, exploring the thermal valley in Wairakei, wine tasting on Waiheke island, and eating the best fish n chips in the world in Mangonui.

My love for creating films doesn't stop when I go on vacation. Years ago I actually found my love for filmmaking on a road trip through America's southwest. To me, stopping and taking the time to create something I'll remember forever doesn't take away from the journey. I love looking back on all the adventures I've had and the people I've shared them with.

Please enjoy this short cinematic highlight film of our 3 week road trip through New Zealand! I hope it inspires you to travel and see new places!
