Hi I'm Jason, the lead filmmaker at Olive & Rye! I love watching movies and I love making movies and I want to pass that passion on to your wedding.
Olive & Rye is a business I started with my wife Erica. Our name is inspired by our daughters Olivia and Rye who remind us every day how important family is. Especially when they use me as jungle gym. We also added a new addition to our family, a golden doodle named Luna. She is literally a real life teddy bear.
Our style can be summed up by a very nice compliment from one of our recent couples. "JASON IS A WEDDING VIDEOGRAPHER THAT FOCUSES ON THE RELATIONSHIPS, THE PEOPLE, AND THEIR STORY!"
We love preserving memories and experiencing the pure joy that comes from your most important day. You are creating a new family and your wedding will undoubtedly be a beautiful story. Our goal is to film that beauty and artfully craft your story into an emotional film for your family to enjoy for years to come.
"This is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.”- Casablanca-
