Hello! My name is Hunter. I'm an Atlanta-based Creative, but my roots extend far beyond the Peach State. I've had a camera in my hand since I was 6 years old (that's 18 years!). My camera has taken me all around the world and I've been extremely fortunate to share thousands of stories.
I'm excited to share with you a little window into my life, with the hopes that by the end you will be ready to

Like I mentioned above, I've had a camera for as long as I can remember. I used to play 'Director' while my siblings would star in our endless number of home movies.
I grew up with a father who was a pilot, which instilled a love for travel at an early age. While I was in college, I ended up meeting a lifelong friend with a shared passion for travel as well as videography. One spontaneous and lifechanging 24-hour trip to New York City ignited what would become a year-long mission and challenge between us - to visit all 50 states in a single year. To document all of our travels as an ongoing video-series, while also engaging with local communities and performing volunteerism along the way. We called it, The State Race.
We flipped burgers at a Spanish fundraiser in El Paso.
Slept in a stranger's barn in Michigan.
Backpacked on beaches in Hawaii with skateboards as transportation.
This single year of travel largly shaped the person that I am today. I learned the value of supporting your local community. I learned that there is a world outide of your own, and that engrossing yourself in other people's cultures and customs is more valuable than anything lesson you could ever be taught in a traditional setting.
I've carried these values throughout my life as I aim on sharing other people stories in a modern day visual format.
After moving into the city of Atlanta to further my videography career, I quickly found a large demand for content in the nightlife space. Me and a parter founded a company called We Are Entertainment, where for the next 2 years would end up working with some of the most respected and acclaimed hip-hop artists in the world.
To go from never listening to rap music when I was younger to being in rooms with platinum-record artists who shaped entire genres of music was complete culture-shock.
During our peak season, we were actively employing 18 team members and creating over 40 videos per week.
I've never worked so hard as I had within these 2 years.
During this period of time, I learned how to manage a team, how to scale a business, and how to build complex systems for managing a large client base.
After once again taking my passion for filmmaking over my ambition for school, I ended up shooting a free concert at my school. Little did I know that I would soon be contacted by the band's manager with an offer to continue shooting content on the road. At this point, I was ready to do almost anything besides school.
We traveled city to city, and I got to experience the lifestyle of a traveling musician, creating once-in-a-lifetime content along the way.
These industry relationships have continued to flourish over the years, and I just recently completed 2 month long US and world tours.
57 shows. 4 continents. 18 countries.
These experiences have allowed me to continue to refine and master my storytelling abilities.
If you've made it this far, then you can see that the life of a videographer is unexpected and full of surprises. You never know where you'll end up, and I never hope to take that for granted.
Its the unknowing of your next adventure, the sharing of each new story that makes me so passionate about each and every new project.
As a wedding videographer, I get the opportunity to share a couples story of love that could have formed overnight serendipitously, or through years of adventures and experiences just like the examples above.
My passion lies within telling these stories. As your wedding content team, we'll make it our sole mission to capture what makes your love unique and worth sharing with the world. These are our vows.
2022, Sonder Media
