“Our wedding goals were to laugh, dance and party hard from the minute we opened our eyes and I think it’s safe to say Rob captured these moments perfectly. The way in which Curious Robin Films managed to present the best moments of our lives in 3 minutes still manages to take our breath away with every viewing For us this was the best gift anyone could receive and we can’t thank Curious Robin Films enough!”

In fact, prior to commencing upon a career in filmmaking, the term second shooter would most likely conjure up conspiracy theories about the assassination of JFK. Thankfully, its a lot less dramatic than that. No grassy […]
