    Daddy's Girl (the blog)



    Click HERE to watch Kasey & Harrison’s reel

    Kasey (pictured above in her Daddy's arms) was married on August 22, 2020 at Burlington Weddings & Events to her long-time sweetheart, Harrison Baker.

    We spoke with Kasey on the phone the week before her wedding. Before any wedding, we have a consultation discussing our famous "Tips for Good Wedding Film" that we have compiled over 200+ weddings. During the conversation, we find out the couple's musical taste and ask what aspects of our videos they like best. Kasey was very excited about capturing her big day and had a few thoughts and questions regarding videography, but she was adamant that we use our creativity and do what we think is best.

    Occasionally, a bride or groom has a specific idea in their head as to what their video should be like. While we try to deliver on their concept, we generally advise our clients to detach themselves from any result and focus on enjoying their day. 

    We honor requests and use specific songs that couples request all of the time, but each wedding is unique and we never know how it's gonna look on film until it is done. Some songs may be long-time favorites of a couple, but just because a song is well-loved, that does not mean it will lend itself to being a good music video. Additionally, the song selected may not match the tone of the wedding.

    We planned in advance to interview Kasey and Harrison separately for a few minutes, so they set aside the time for that in advance on their wedding day schedule. We had no idea what they would say. We had no clue Kasey would talk about her parents, Brian and Shanna Johnson. We did not know she would cry. We did not know what kind of reaction her father would have when he saw Kasey for the first time later that day. We had no idea how close their family was and how they would react. We had no idea how moving her father's speech would be (the planner, the DJ, the photographers and both of us from Reagan Studios all cried). And no one except the DJ knew about their special father-daughter dance.

    My point is that we could not have planned THIS VIDEO in advance. Nonetheless, it happened. The family trusted we would deliver cinematography that would capture the feel of the day. But none of us knew the form it would take. Fortunately, they hired us way in advance, hired a brilliant wedding planner, and gave us room to be creative and let the day unfold in our editing software naturally.

    Couples that hire Reagan Studios to film their weddings are typically pretty serious about wanting videography. Occasionally, a couple will even set their wedding date partially around when we are available. Eighteen months in advance, or soon as a couple is engaged, is typical for Reagan Studios. Kasey's mom first contacted Reagan Studios on November 12, 2015 via Facebook Messenger. She had seen some of our work on FB and wrote, "Your work is off the chart. I have told my husband and daughters you will be the FIRST call made, once they are engaged."

    For many couples in the wedding planning process, videography is not a priority and we get calls from couples all the time a few months before their wedding saying they have re-thought it, and they want videography now. Unfortunately, we are typically sold out by that time.

    Not every wedding day goes as planned. Sometimes it rains, sometimes relatives cannot attend, sometimes the unplanned happens. But my partner, Collins, and I have found that if a family trusts us to do what we do best, they will be pleased with the results.

    Disney Princess

     Wedding Videography


    Bekah and Chris were married on Saturday, November 23, 2019 at Flyway Lodge in Knotts Island, North Carolina. An historic waterfront property, it was originally a hunting lodge frequented in the last century by notables like President Dwight Eisenhower. The property is currently under renovation and is available for special events such as weddings and corporate gatherings.

    Chris asked Bekah to marry her in Disney World during the fireworks display while "Happily Ever After" played throughout the park. That song was chosen by Bekah as her recessional and is played in the short film after the ceremony - timed just as the DJ played it.

    Check out their wedding cinematography showcase: it features a music video wedding highlight reel using a sweet tune from Tears for Fears, PLUS a short film that features the full ceremony and two songs that were the bride's processional and recessional.

    Wedding Videography is essential in remembering your best day ever. Why spend a year planning and a substantial sum of money on the wedding of your dreams - only to not film it? Check out Reagan Studios. Read their reviews on Wedding Wire.

    Produced by, a film production company based on the east coast of the United States specializing in wedding cinematography, commercial videography, and music videos for artists and bands. Primarily focused from New York to Nashville, Reagan Studios is available to travel worldwide.

    Van Halen Wedding Video

    Van Halen Wedding Video

    Question: Can a Van Halen song work as a wedding highlight reel?
    Answer: I am willing to try.

    On July 14, 2018, Collins and I filmed a wedding at The Market at Grelen in Somerset, Virginia. We knew this wedding would be fun as we have filmed this family (or friends of this family) three other times: Brittany, Savanah, and Sarah. Too bad Jen & Josh Adams were married before I knew them as you will see them in all four of these videos.

    Anyway, I had several songs in mind for this wedding (and I am using a country song for a different version of their wedding highlights) but when Melanie & Kevin entered the reception, I knew what I had to do - and I accepted the challenge. They came in the big tent to the sound of their friends and family cheering and to the music of "Dance the Night Away" by Van Halen.

    It is remarkable to think that this song (which was recorded before most of the attendees were born) is still this popular. Like "Don't Stop Believing" by Journey, or "Celebration" by Kool and the Gang, some party song don't fade away.

    It also turns out that Melanie is quite the dancer. And dancing had something to do with them getting together to begin with - or so I heard.

    Now check out their video and see what you think: CLICK HERE. I hope you enjoy it as much as the wedding couple does. CONGRATULATIONS, Melanie and Kevin! It was an honor filming your wedding.

    Alturia Farm Wedding in Virginia

     wedding videography

    What a great country wedding at Alturia Farm in Virginia! Sarah and her friends had a wonderful loft, bedroom and game room to get ready. And the guys played corn hole and had a few beverages. The sun came out just in time for sunset. We are so lucky to have such wonderful country venues in Virginia. Family and friends can remember this wedding forever with this highlight reel as well as a Preview, Special Feature, Video Guestbook and raw footage on a portable hard drive. Filmed on location at
