Little Cactus Films

northern Michigan cinematic wedding & lifestyle films

2020 gave us a lot of things - stress, anxiety, continuous curosity of what's going to happen next, appreciation for teachers and a little more love for our hand soap and cleaning products. For those of us that were already working at/from home a lot, it brought a little bit of stir crazy and made us push our creative boundaries - one of things I personally found myself tip-toeing towards and finding an interest in was videography - creating home films, documenting little moments I normally wouldn't have, trying different areas, lighting situations and endless attempts to find the perfect fade or transition. I was HOOKED!

With nearing 10 years of love, magic and experience in wedding photography, I found I also fell in love with filmmaking and cinematic storytelling - and now nearly 3 years later, here we are. My passion ready to make it's entrance out into the world and get to work! I never want to stop telling love stories, documenting families times together or creating magic based on a persons personality, I just want to add to.

So here it is, after practice, trials and errors, encouragement from friends, family and clients like - we're adding a new chapter. Little Cactus Films, it's what we've been up to!
