Target Wedding Video Shoot and Registry Event in Austin

For this Target Live Wedding Registry Event in Austin, there were many parties involved. The event itself was run by a separate team, moving the promotional event from city to city, taking over a home in which to create a stylish wedding registry example that you could actually walk through (rather than zapping in the store). This would eventually be posted online in their Most Popular Registry Lists.

The other component was a video shoot, featuring two unique Austin personalities to demonstrate and endorse real registry items. Then, we would have these talented folks show up at the registry house for the event night. The videos would be shot in the days just before the event. The shoot was rescheduled into new dates that would conflict with my other projects, so I tag teamed with Maddie Hamilton (now of Homestead Creatives)







Here are the videos!

Out West to LA with Jonathan Chapman for Panasonic

Jonathan Chapman called me to produce a photo and video shoot featuring Panasonic‘s latest line of Toughbook and Toughpad tablets via the ad agency Phelps. Setting was destined to be Los Angeles, and we found some great locations! One high end quick food service restaurant, and one very stylish furniture and decor shop. Jonathan did an amazing job working with a big pile of models to get great shots. Here are some featured shots and more from the Panasonic website.

Toyota Rav4 by Ashton Rodgers

I had another opportunity to do a shoot with Ashton Rodgers for Toyota. This one was honestly pretty darn easy since there was already a TV commercial happening. Our task was simply to coordinate with the tv team and borrow talent as we had the opportunity. Still turned out some really fun photos! Plus it’s great to see these up high on billboards around town.
