Stephen’s camera of choice is the Canon 1DX MarkII. It is a seriously powerful image making tool that films in 4K, captures rich and intense colors, yet is light enough to go anywhere. Having a smaller camera kit enables him to move around quickly and film like a ghost. Most couples forget he is in the room!

To compliment his main camera during the ceremony, he uses Canon C100 Cinema Cameras, which are also excellent filmmaking cameras. All cameras are simply tools to capture light, emotion, and story, but it is the camera operator who makes the critical decisions about what to capture and when. By choosing professional grade tools, Stephen is able to translate what he sees with his eye into the vision he has for the film.
