We are Shelby and Josh, the creative producers and filmmakers behind First Dance Films. Our backgrounds are in art and filmmaking. When we film weddings we transform real, unscripted moments into a beautiful love story. Capturing emotions throughout the day that are otherwise easily forgotten. Gifting you with your own unique film to rewatch year after year. We’re not pushy, and we don’t like overly posed. Our goal is to fit seamlessly into your day so that you forget we’re even there.
Ultimately, your wedding day is about celebrating your love while surrounded by your friends and family. We’re just there to capture the important moments, the candid moments, and the celebration. Our favorite compliment is that we’re easy to work with. Hiring First Dance Films means you know who to expect on your wedding day. It will always be us, Shelby and Josh, we don't hire out. We listen to what our couples want, hear their story, and make them a one of a kind, cinematic, wedding film.
We are proudly based in Denver, Colorado, but love to travel.

Perfect Capture of the best day 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. We met Shelby and Josh right before our wedding and were so happy they were a part of our big day. They captured so many little moments that made the day special. I cannot recommend them enough! We have a video we will cherish forever- THANK YOU SO MUCH!Sent on 10/15/2019

Heart and Soul
We had the amazing privilege of having Shelby and Josh capture our special day. Not only were they easy to work with up to and including the day of, but the final product was more than we could have asked for. It is evident that they put their heart and soul into their work and that they really cared about making the video special for us. For our wedding, they worked alongside Murphy E Photography and the combination of them was so special. They were the perfect pair! When looking for a videographer (and photographer) you want someone that wants to be there and cares about what they do. First Dance Films does just that and more. If we were to do it all over again, we would work with Shelby and Josh a million times over.Sent on 11/27/2019

Can't say enough!
I honestly cannot say enough about Shelby & Josh! We absolutely LOVED our wedding films. The highlight reel was just perfect, the music they choose was emotional but subtle, and they completely captured the vibe of our wedding and our community! I tear up every time I watch them. Our reception was under the stars and a little dark for filming, so S&J improvised, found external disco lights to use over everyone on the dance floor and made it look awesome. We got the full ceremony add on and it was one of the best decisions we made. Definitely worth the money to be able to relive that -- forever!Sent on 10/23/2019
