Member of the Month June 2014: Sarah Pendergraft

There are just some wedding videos that so perfectly capture the love between a couple that they can make you feel like an intimate member of their inner circle.
“Whitney and Brian are such a sweet couple. We knew emotions would run high at their wedding, but we still weren't prepared for how much we got choked up ourselves.”
When selecting a videographer for her own wedding, Sarah admits she and Rick were clueless. “We both have a media/journalism background and were working in local news,” she says. “We booked an industry friend (who had a small production company) to shoot our wedding video without even seeing his work because we honestly had no expectations.” After receiving the friend’s highlights reel, the Pendergrafts were pleasantly surprised and realized that shooting wedding films was something they would enjoy doing together.
“Rebecca and Travis have one of our favorite love stories ever. We nicknamed their highlight the Story of Love and Dirt.”
Her films seem like they are pulled off effortlessly, but Sarah still runs into the occasional project that pushes her work to a new level. While shooting an intimate beach destination wedding, Sarah and her team ran into more challenges than they could have ever anticipated.
“This may be the most giddy group of people we have ever been around. Their happiness was practically contagious, and we could have partied all night with them.”
