Shannon & Kellen’s Wedding at The Brick


Wow, what a day for Shannon and Kellen! We arrived to busy wedding party preparations at the Morris Inn and got right to work capturing the bride and groom getting suited up! It wasn’t long before the makeup was done, the tux and dress were on, Kellen was off to the Basilica and Shannon went to see her father for the first time that morning. And what a beautiful moment that was. Seeing her father’s joy for his daughter was really special.  The whole day was beautiful and everything fell right into place. Enough from me about the day, see for yourself!

Trailer – Leigh & Nate {Niles, Mi Wedding}

Where to start? Leigh & Nathan’s wedding was beautiful, fun and entertaining! Nate and his guys were an awesome crew with a team focus and a wedding day game plan drawn up on a blackboard before the ceremony. Leigh and her girls may have been slightly more subdued but not because of a lack of caffeine as they kicked off their morning with a Starbucks run and an excellent hair and make up session at Leigh’s grandparents home. Everyone was great to work with and I’d like to extend a special thanks to Katie and Chris of Katie Whitcomb Photographers and Richelle from MerryMeEvents for making things go seamlessly. And of course to Leigh and Nathan for having us. Congrats on your marriage!

Company Bio

Vibe Productions was founded early fall of 2007 by yours truly Jake Stutzman. Vibe does various video projects but focuses primarily on wedding video something I have been doing for several years since earning my BFA at Columbus College of Art and Design 2003. During my last year in school I was blessed to find video work for a company named Bihari Productions a small video production house that produced around 50 wedding videos a year. There I was privileged to work with film maker Mr. Bihari who taught me professional video making and film making techniques. I worked as an editor and cameraman there for a year plus and when the time came for change decided to move to California. While in Cali I also landed a job at a small events company who hired me on as an employee after my editing on a freelance project or two. Working there was a fantastic experience. After some time however I determined to come back to the Midwest and began freelance work at the PBS station WNIT. Running camera in the studio and field and being around television production helped me to refine old skills and grow my own style for producing video into a mix of formal technique & creative abandon. My philosophy in video and art is to keep learning and changing using experience and inspiration to make each project the  best it can be. Presently Vibe Productions plans to continue growing and serving Indianapolis and the greater Midwest area.
