The Eyes Behind The Camera

Cinematographers. Filmmakers. Storytellers. 

At Cinematic Inception, Michael and Sarah capture your memories to tell your story—not only how you saw it, but how you felt it and experienced it. We create films to help you share and remember the most important and awe-inspiring moments of your life. We learned that some of the smallest moments inspire the most wonder. Our mission is to capture these moments and help others feel the same way you did when you first experienced them. Cinematic Inception was founded in 2019, but this has been our goal for much longer.

We have been a couple since 2008—back when you still had a disposable camera and would rush home to chat with your friends on AOL Instant Messenger. We went from being awkward teenagers in love to slightly-less awkward adults who are even more in love, have countless adventures under our belts, and are the parents to two dogs—Mammut and Daisy. In October of 2018, we eloped at the Taco Bell Cantina in Las Vegas before embarking on another adventure to Zion National Park.

We seek adventure and experiences that force you to live in the moment. We love to explore the types of places that make you and your problems seem really small. We started creating videos to share these experiences with our family and friends.

Thanks for taking the time to get to know us. We would love to help you tell your story.
