Owner / Director / Editor
Originally from Northeast Georgia, Matt Giesler now lives in Franklin, Tennessee with his wife, Lauren and one year old daughter, Everly. After graduating in 2006 from Belmont University with a BBA in Music Business, he began work as an associate producer for a nationally syndicated television show. Matt's role within the company evolved and expanded over time to include production, direction, and video editing responsibilities.
Matt’s interest in video production developed steadily, and his passion for piecing together memories through film grew with each new project. With the opportunity to film his first wedding, Matt discovered a love for telling the story of such a special day in a couple's life together, and telling it in a moving and unique way. In addition to a multitude of "I Do's", Matt has created moving, cinematic videos in assorted genres, including live band performances, music videos, as well as corporate and personal promotional products.
Matt has a keen talent for telling stories in a creative and emotional fashion through film. Matt’s videos bring each occasion to life, allowing clients to enjoy every aspect of their special day for years to come.
In his spare time, Matt enjoys drooling over camera gear, fellowship with his church family, watching movies, spending evenings on the back porch with Lauren and Everly, and cheering on his beloved Georgia Bulldogs.

Gloria Ballard first picked up a camera at the age of fifteen, pointed it at two little boys in overalls playing on a hay bale, and has been the annoying relative with the giant camera at family functions ever since. !
Originally from Claremore, OK, she now hails from Murfreesboro, TN, where she spends her days chasing her happy little one-year-old son, Brandir (who she is hopelessly in love with), building Minecraft empires and watching Dr. Who with her husband, Dustin, and living one day at a time with a fresh-baked cookie in her hand. (Okay, and with a coffee. And maybe some chocolate. But she promises to take her vitamins.) When the tiny boy is asleep, she gets to edit wedding videos for all you beautiful and glowing brides out there (during which times she may or may not have been caught boo-hooing like a little girl). She loves capturing the happiness and beauty of your special day!
