Hello! 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.

    Beautiful memories captured forever!!

    A huge thank you to Shelby at First Dance Films for her videography on our daughter's wedding. Our package included a teaser, 12 minute clip, and later we added full length video of the wedding. All items were done beautifully and with care. The 12 minute clip was incredible!! our Indian 1 + hour wedding had so many moments that I was concerned may not be captured into the 12 minute, but Shelby did it!! Without a doubt, I will continue to count on First Dance Films for my other daughter's weddings:))

    An unforgettable elopement - thank you First Dance!

    We cannot say enough amazing things about Shelby and Josh! They were so chill to work with from the beginning and immediately understood our vision. When we postponed our wedding due to covid, we still had First Dance capture our elopement and it was absolutely breathtaking. We offered some small creative ideas of what we thought we wanted and they took it to the next level. They were so amazing to work with onsite and delivered amazing films that we will cherish forever. Thank you thank you for being part of such a special moment!

    First Dance Films's reply:

    Thank you, Cristina! You and Andres were such a blast to work with. We loved the creative energy you brought to all of the planning. And the intimate elopement you all put together was magical. So glad we were there to be a part of it.

    Thank you again!

    Exceeded all expectations

    We are so thankful we had the opportunity to work with Shelby and Josh. They were so friendly and accommodating throughout the process and on the wedding day. The wedding video they made was a dream come true - every time we watch it, we feel like we are reliving the day all over again. We couldn't imagine our wedding day without them and we couldn't recommend them more!

Hello, I'm Shelby! The owner of First Dance Films. My partner Josh and I are the faces behind our wedding films. I'm an independent artist and filmmaker, and live in Denver, Colorado with Josh and our little pug.

We started First Dance Films back in 2018, and are blown away by all of the incredible people we've met along the way. I feel so lucky to have met and worked with all of our clients thus far. I didn't anticipate so many clients would become friends of ours.

I'm looking forward to meeting you all! Josh and I are the only ones behind First Dance Films, so you'll have a personalized experience working with us. We are great listeners and here to make your wedding film one you'll want to watch all the time.
