Oh hey! We’re Matt and Dena

…the videographers of We Do Wedding Videography, based in Minneapolis MN (but down to travel ANYWHERE you want to tie the knot!). We started filming weddings together 3 years ago, and have filmed over 100 love stories since then.

As wedding videographers, it’s our job and our joy to ensure that our couples will be able to relive the greatest day of their lives for years to come.  The ability to deliver a video that encapsulates all of the energy and emotion of a wedding day has been the most rewarding career for the both of us.

One thing that sets our videos apart from others is our passion for high quality audio. We love recording personalized vows, or the hand written letters our couples write to one another, and then use that audio to narrate their videos. We love movement, so during portraits we often ask our couples to do simple things like look at one another and laugh, kiss, smile at one another, or hold hands and walk together. Those filmed movements help us in weaving together the cinematic story of the day.
 
Although photographs are beautiful and absolutely crucial to have for a wedding day, video provides our couples with memories of the way their voice sounded while they recited their vows to one another, the way their parents laughter sounded as they reacted in joy to the speeches that were given at the reception, and the beauty of the movement as our couples share their first kiss.  

It’s moments like those that we work hard to capture for our couples, and moments like those that we use to tell their love story.   

 
 

A Little More About Us

We met in a funny way (literally).

For a time, we attended the same Sunday night comedy showcase—Matt as videographer (he writes, films, and acts in comedy sketches), Dena in the audience (she performs stand-up comedy). Something about the back of Dena’s head caught Matt’s attention, because after one of those shows, Dena came home to a Facebook message from Matt asking her on a date. She agreed and we’ve been together ever since!

We’re storytellers in every aspect of our lives. Whatever it is—telling jokes on stage, writing scripts for video sketches, telling our couple’s love stories—a great story evokes the emotion of the day and preserves precious memories.

When we’re not shooting weddings, you can find us in bookstores, in line at the movie theater, or at home cuddling with our cat, Leviah.

Now that you know a little about us, we’re excited to get to know you.
