Our Story

Cinema Stories (previously Mendezign Photography) was started more than 20 years ago because of a passion I had for making brides (and grooms) feel and look their best when celebrating their special day–all the while having them not even notice that I was there. This ‘stealth’ mode of photography during the wedding ceremony (and reception) let them be themselves and let me capture true-to-life moments in time.

Although Cinema Stories still does portraits, head shots, engagements (and even proposals!), we now specialize in video. Video allows us to capture not only what a bride dancing with her father looks like but what it feels like too! Anyone can shoot in HD these days, but with Cinema Stories you’ll receive cinematic memories that are crafted from the moment we record our first clip.
