About Me

Hi my name is Aaron and I started Red Byrd Creative because I love to tell stories! Whether if it's in a cinematic way or just a friendly conversation, I like sharing experiences that make up our biggest moments or our smallest accomplishments. Thanks to my beautiful wife, Ellen, I was encouraged to make the leap into full time shortly after starting the company and I haven't looked back to a 9 to 5 since!

Growing up in the 90's but also being influenced by my older sister's 80's knowhow, I grew up with a very wide variation of experiences and interests (TMNT and David Bowie to name a few). I found I was good with both a wrench and a paint brush, so I took naturally to things that were both mechanical and artistic. This led me to cameras and what you can capture with them!


My wife and I love to explore locally or abroad to find amazing sites and meet new people. Now with our beautiful baby girl, we're finding whole new adventures as a family. There are so many stories to tell, so why not try to capture a few of the great ones!

  • Is Wedding Videography worth it?
    Wedding Videography may seem newer to weddings or not as vital as photography, but it can quickly prove to be the most important vendor at your wedding. That thought doesn't come from me (the videographer), it comes from past clients and their families. Film and videos are still the best way we can relive a moment. Much like seeing footage of yourself or family from years ago, you not only see people as they were that day, but you see how they moved, how they acted, and in many cases how they sounded. To this day, it is the closest thing we have to time travel. So if you hire a videographer for your wedding day, you're creating a professional quality video that allows you to relive the day with your partner, or with any new additions to your family that didn't get to be there on the day.
  • What is the difference between a Documentary Film and a Highlight Film?
    A Documentary Film is all the major moments of the day put chronologically into one film. This includes your ceremony, toasts, and formal dances. The length of each of the major events (usually over 30 minutes) determines the total duration of the film. A Highlight Film is a stylized look at the day, and is created with the intention to harness the emotion and showcase the best of the best moments. Length is determined by the selected package option.
  • What are the Major Events that are included in the Doc Film?
    The major events of the day are usually the Ceremony, Grand Entrance, Cake Cutting, Toasts, First Dance, and Parent Dances. Other items can fit this category too, such as a first look or a cultural tradition. Any alternate Major Moments are something we discuss in a meeting or phone call.
  • How long is a Documentary Film?
    The documentary film’s length relies mostly on the length of each of the major events. A 30-minute ceremony usually results in about a 1-hour film, while a 1-hour ceremony usually results in a 1 hour 20 minute film.
  • What is the Extended Documentary / Montage add-on?
    The Extended Documentary is when we take most of the footage we have from the days non-major moments and put it in chronological order with in the traditional major moments that are already in the Documentary Film. These non-major moments include events like bride and groom prep, the photo sessions, and open dancing just to name a few. With this extra footage, we add music to it to create a wonderfully full scene for each of these smaller moments. This lets you relive the official and unofficial moments of your wedding day, while keeping it at a pace and length that is still enjoyable.
