"We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give."  

Winston Churchill



It all started with a desire to tell a story about love. Tom Badoud was an accomplished audio engineer and one very resourceful guy. So when he was "volunteered" to prepare a video for a memorial of a much-loved friend, he disregarded the learning curve and set out to produce a cinematic, meaningful multimedia project that literally changed the course of his life.

As Tom observed how the video brought rapt attention and deep emotion from everyone in the group that day, He quietly decided that this magical moment was somehow meant to be a part of his life. Tom kept producing videos for friends and family, and word spread that this was a multimedia storyteller who would add exceptional value to those special and treasured life events.

Since 1992, Tom has trained over 50 videographers, and endeared himself to hundreds of happy couples. Emma Clark is a client-turned-videographer, who has partnered with Tom to specialize in telling the very best stories of life... "...and the greatest of these is Love."

"Great stories happen to those who can tell them."

Our video easily moved our family and friends to tears of happy memories of the day. It could not have turned out more beautiful. The speeches are laid over the video in such a way that it really does tell a story of the day and our relationship. I only had the video done at my mother-in-law's urging, and I never thought I would be one of those women who looks back at her wedding video every year, but I know for sure that I will now. I do not have a single complaint or regret. Thank you so much!

Emma & Tom are the best team in the industry as far as I'm concerned. They are very professional, outgoing and deliver a fantastic product. At the end of the day, you couldn't ask for more.

Emma is very professional and passionate with her work. She delivered beyond and above her client expectations. We are very happy and satisfied with the quality of work she gave us. She even made us a sneak peak video that looks like a fairy tale story. Until now my family and friends are talking about how great our video was. Highly recommended! awesome and great to work with!!
