Because we believe that every person and their journey is unique, it is important to us to get to know and capture you both in the
most genuine and meaningful way. Your wedding is about you two, so it is our commitment to serve you, not just on wedding day,
but from the moment we meet to the 9,999th time you hit re-play and all the feelings re-surface again 40 years from now.
Marriage is important to us. That’s why we're investing into your experience.
What We Deliver
Cinematic Wedding Film
Our signature 5 to 8 minute story-driven assembly of beautiful imagery, powerful music and vocals, crafted together in an artistic, movie-like fashion. It allows you to experience together all the emotions, excitement, moments, and details again from the day. Because it is our main product, we proudly spend most of our time producing them.
The ceremony, toasts, rehearsal dinner, dances, or special event, edited in chronological order, and perfect for reliving the moment together or with friends or family. These are made custom upon request.
Highlight / Music Video
If you like the idea of having a 1-3 minute powerful compilation of the best moments from the day to share with friends and family, a highlight video is ideal for just that. These are made custom upon request and can include a song of choice.
The usable and unedited clips minus the ceremony, toasts, and main events. Consider these the raw, unedited bloopers.

About Your Filmmakers
Hello! We are Daniel and Maria. We are a married, international couple, and we love true romance. We are romantics, travelers, foodies and health nuts and Carmel Frappuccino drinkers, outdoor lovers, dreamers, and creators. We enjoy a good adventure and scouting new hidden places between the Blue Ridge Mountains and coastline. We love spending time with others and serving at our church. And one thing we feel the most called to is working with and blessing other couples. With YAF, we are proud to have the opportunity to work with about 20 special couples a year. As you will find, we absolutely love what we do. Here is just one bride of many who knows it!
“We used Yours Always Films for our big day and it was one of the best decisions we made! From our first coffee date to our big day, Daniel was so personable and motivated to give us something special to remember the best day by. He definitely delivered. I watch our video all the time. The memories with friends, family, and my husband on that day are all frozen in time because of that video. His attention to detail is amazing! He is creative and works well with the photographer. If you’re looking for amazing work, Yours Always Films is for you! 💍 You will not regret it!” - Paige
I, Maria, am from Maputo, Mozambique, and Daniel from Indiana. Yep, Daniel flew all the way around the world to meet my family and I and to propose to me on the beach. During our year-and-a-half long-distance engagement, and until we united in the states in 2019, he created videos for us to hold onto all the memories we made. Since then, we've been telling stories of other couples together because of how powerful it was for us. So powerful that it means the world to you when it's all you have to remember something in such a real, emotional, exciting, visually stimulating, and heartfelt way. We value marriage and the meaning behind it, and believe in strengthening and deepening relationships. We believe we found our calling, and therefore, we give it our all!
Daniel is most rooted in his lifelong talent in creating. Daniel grew up drawing and playing and writing music. He spent his high school years recording in the basement, performing for concerts and leading worship services at church and small groups. Before graduating high school, he bought himself a camera and took it everywhere he went. Friends started to know him for his music and photography. After shooting his first wedding in 2010, Daniel felt a whole new excitement surface into his life. Using a medium to creatively capture and recreate epic, romance stories was no doubt his new passion.
I, Maria, grew up in Maputo, Mozambique and spent my time dancing and studying numbers. My passion, however, was connecting with others and offering my support/coaching them through their relationships, like my mother had always done for me. Not until I met Daniel on a Christian dating website did I get to see my own romance story unfold. Since our marriage, I have begun the journey of investing my time into videography and photography, alongside my husband.
With our love for connection, visual storytelling, and purpose driven marriage, we serve couples the moment they reach out to us and commit to telling their story in a deep, adventurous, and personal way. Our main goal is to use the skills and talent God gave us to showcase the raw emotion and excitement within your love story. Contact us today if you want us to be a part of your wedding vision!
Yours Always, Daniel and Maria
