Michael L Stansbery Jr

This is a short video we put together for the family of Michael L Stansbery Jr.  


"No one has greater love than this to lay down one's life for one's friends" - John 15:13


We had the honor of taping the arrival and police escort of Michael Stansbery's Casket. It was a very somber and moving morning as Military Honor Guard moved his casket from the plane.

Stansbery, Jr., Spc. Michael Lane, age 21, of Mt. Juliet, TN, died Friday, July 30, 2010 while serving his country in Kandahar Providence, Afghanistan. He served as an active duty U.S. Army Automated Technical Data System Specialist assigned to Headquarters Battery, 1st Battalion, 320th Field Artillery Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division. His previous assignments include Ft. Sill, OK, Ft. Carson, CO and one tour of duty in Iraq. Michael was a true patriot who felt that he had been well prepared by the U.S. Army to perform any duty he was assigned. Michael was a member of Cooks United Methodist Church. He was a 2007 graduate of Wilson Central High School where he was on the wrestling team and a proud member of the Jr. ROTC.

Michael is survived by parents, Michael and Tammy Stansbery and 
beloved sister, Michelle Stansbery. He leaves behind numerous family members and friends.

Mike Hight

I had the honor of putting this montage together for a Veterans funeral.

Kimberly and Art's Montage

I produce many photo montages for clients but especially like making them for families where I am shooting the wedding video as well.

It is so much fun seeing the bride and groom grow up through the years, seeing their pictures as they dated and leading right up to the wedding.

Kimberly and Art chose the music to accompany each segment. I aim to produce stylish montages that are not too flashy, enabling viewers of all age groups to have time to reminisce as each picture appears on the screen


Blair & Andrew's Wedding Movie Teaser

The day of the wedding Blair dressed with her mother, sisters and bridesmaids at the church, pictures were taken leading up to a beautiful ceremony.

Covenant Presbyterian

This is an introduction to a wedding ceremony I had shot at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Nashville. The Church is stunningly beautiful and I was fortunate enough to video my first wedding in the new sanctuary on October 17th. The beautiful string quartet you hear in the background was recorded live as part of the prelude music using 3 different microphone sources. The string quartet that I mentioned is one that has been playing together since the early 1990's...for weddings, church events and commercial Christian recordings and are known as the Sacred Arts Quartet. Members are David Davidson, David Angell, Monisa Angell and Anthony LaMarchina.
They also play together on a lot of commercial artists projects...at that point their name changes...go to www.Davidsviolin.com for more info
