We are Shelby and Josh,

We own and operate First Dance Films between Austin, Texas and Denver, Colorado.

We’re known for our stunning cinematography, and our thoughtful and creative editing—capturing the unique spirit of every wedding and couple we film. What drives our work is showcasing true love stories and providing one-of-a-kind wedding films that are endlessly rewatchable. Our couples go back to their wedding films years down the road. We’re not pushy, and we don’t like overly posed. Our goal is to fit seamlessly into your day.

All of our films are unique, and that is intentional. Our films are crafted for each individual couple. We film and edit each frame of our wedding videos ourselves so that you can be confident in knowing who you are hiring. Because we don’t hire out, we have limited availability, so please reach out with your wedding date as soon as you can.

“Everything we could have asked for! I am so excited to have this for the rest of our lives!”

“If you are looking to forever relive the best day of your life in a little time capsule of love... Look no further.”

“Couldn’t be happier! I watch our film every day! Thank you so much for making our day so special!”

“Beyond what we could have imagined.  Shelby & Josh are truly such kind, good hearted people and I believe they put their all into our film. The quality of the film was literally that of a short movie.”

Emily & Cole

“Such an amazing experience! Our teaser and final film captured our wedding so perfect and made us cry when we received it. Such a perfect way to remember our wedding day!”

Delany & Evan

“We can’t wait to watch our film every year on our anniversary, and probably a million other times if I’m being honest.”

Kelsey & Sean

“They captured everything beautifully, were very enthusiastic about the theme of my wedding, and were very creative. They really went the extra mile for me, and I’m so happy that I can look back at the most magical day of my life over and over again!”

Shelby and Josh are incredibly talented and the two nicest people you’ll ever meet.

I honestly cannot say enough about Shelby & Josh! They completely captured the vibe of our wedding and our community! I tear up every time I watch our films.
