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

Shelby and Josh are incredible talented and the two nicest people you’ll ever meet. I was hesitant about spending the money on a videographer, but I’m so glad I did and that I chose First Dance Films. We wrote our own vows, but I was so overwhelmed on our wedding day that by the next morning I couldn’t remember anything my sweet husband had said. Luckily Shelby and Josh captured it all so I’ll forever be able to relive the day. Shelby also went out of her way to make sure my gown was perfectly situated for all of my photos - a little touch showing how she always goes the extra mile. You won’t be disappointed hiring First Dance Films to capture your wedding day.Sent on 07/20/2019
