Hey there! I'm Michael LEMLEY

Based in Williamsburg, Virginia and ready to travel wherever your love story takes you, I get the opportunity to do my dream job every single day and I am SO thankful for all the amazing people and couples I get to serve along the way. My heart is to get to know each of my couples to a level where we’ll be friends before and after the wedding day. I will be with you every step along the way to not only create a great looking wedding film but to serve you as a couple along the way so that you feel loved, cherished, and blessed. 

what you can expect:

Deep Laughter

Heartfelt Moments

Cherished Memories

Truly Timeless Style

Genuine Smiles


your friend behind the lens

My interest in filmmaking sparked at the young age of 6 years old when I began teaching myself how to edit and shoot video. I truly believe in the power that video has in creative storytelling. Over the past 6 years, I've had the joy to film over 100+ weddings, travel internationally, and get to know so many amazing couples along the way. As a follower of Jesus, I'm a big believer in authenticity, real moments, and your unique story.

You can find me...

Checking out a new coffee shop in town, relaxing at the Outer Banks at our family’s beach  house, wandering through the aisles of my local Trader Joe's, and crossing off places on my travel bucket list.

traveling somewhere new!


Going on new adventures is one of my favorite things to do with my couples before the wedding day! Whether that means going on a hike, trying out a new coffee shop, or finding the perfect spot to watch the sunset, I'm always ready for new experiences with couples turned friends. 


Intentional moments, heartfelt joy, and truly getting to know you both as a couple is the heart behind what I do.
