“Justin is an artist. If you want to tell him what you want your wedding to look like/feel like that’s great. He can certainly do that. If you want Justin to shine though… tell him and show him what kind of love you and your partner share and give him the reigns to tell that story for you, and you won’t be disappointed.” – Erin & Spencer

I truly set out to create a unique piece of art for all my couples. I believe your wedding film should be about you, not forcing you into something you’re not. There’s space for you to be yourself – funny, quirky, serious, romantic. My films are based on who you are as a couple, your likes, dislikes, your passions, your talents – the things that you love and the experiences that have formed you. You are the story. I’ve found that this approach is more creatively fulfilling and leads to a better film for you.

Hi, I’m Justin. After filming weddings for more than 10 years, here’s what I know : everyone wants a good wedding film. I want to help you achieve that. Many people will say every wedding is different – this is somewhat true. But many weddings are like another. The stage is similar, the props are similar, the plot is similar to another. What’s different is the cast. I endeavor, with every film I make, to bottle up a bit of the essence of two lovers and distill it into a piece of art they can hold on to for a lifetime.

I’m an avid traveller and hiker – I’m not afraid to get my boots muddy. After living in Houston, TX for two decades my wife and I decided to make the lifestyle move to Asheville, NC to be in the mountains. Now I base Candeo Films out of both cities and anywhere else you want to go. I love all kinds of weddings, from traditional church weddings to ballroom extravaganzas, but I also have a special place in my heart for adventure weddings and elopements off the beaten path. If it sounds like we could be a good fit, I would love to hear from you!!

Justin was very attentive to our wants and needs for the project. He spent plenty of time with us outside his scope of work just to make sure he had all the shots he needed to capture the essence of my relationship with my wife.

Justin is an artist. He knows both music and video and pairs them perfectly together. When my wife and I received our video, the resounding message we got is that anyone who watched our video who didn’t know us and our love, certainly would by the end.

Outside of his incredible work, he is a pleasure to work with. He is funny, responsive, inquisitive, and witty. He knows his stuff but is humble to any ideas you have for him creatively.

If you want to tell him what you want your wedding to look like/feel like that’s great. He can certainly do that. If you want Justin to shine though… tell him and show him what kind of love you and your partner share and give him the reigns to tell that story for you, and you won’t be disappointed.

I couldn’t possibly say enough to do Justin the justice he deserves! From start to finish he was incredibly communicative and personable! My husband and I had a zoom meeting with him prior to booking where he really took the time to get to know us and our story and asked what we envisioned for our wedding day and video.
Once we booked Justin came over and met with my husband and I in person and recorded some audio as well as got some shots of our letters we had written to each other while dating! It was so awesome to do this in a comfortable setting and totally helped us feel more natural on our actual wedding day!
We also decided to add on a “Well Wishes booth” where our guests recorded video messages for us! Literally the coolest thing ever and so hilarious!
We received our sneak peak video while on our honeymoon and have watched it probably 2000 times since… at least!! He absolutely nailed it and captured all the emotions of the day! We seriously get compliments all the time!
Our final video has absolutely blown us away. While watching the video we laughed, cried, and smiled the entire time- same as on our wedding day! He truly couldn’t have done a better job!
A few final notes about working with Justin:
- He was communicating with updates on where he was at with our video and sent a few short clips!
- He made our video so unique and so US!!
- If you haven’t booked him yet what are ya doing?!?!?!!?
