About Highway 61 Films

Our mission is to tell a story, we feel that ultimately people still respond to a great narrative. We pride ourselves in getting tknow people, when this happens we are on the way to making an emotional, effective film.

We are seeing a change in the way people think about wedding films, and we feel like we helped usher that movement. We think that we can help become the vehicle to get to the place where couples are thinking about their film before they consider a photographer. After all, films tell a story of your day and who you are in ways that photos can not do. The people at a wedding are telling the narrative from the ceremony vows to the toasts, along with the score, these are the elements that help make films come alive.

We have been making documentary and narrative based films for over 10 years. Cutting our teeth in a non-wedding story driven environment allowed us to implement practices and artistic vision to the wedding films. As we have learned and grown through the years we've continued to move forward with new techniques and methods.

Highway 61 Films is owned and operated by Jason D. Monroe

    Wonderful footage of wedding day in trailer and video!

    Jason and his team were truly wonderful to work with. When I asked for minor tweaks to the trailer, Jason got back with a perfectly modified version within a day of my inquiry. As for the longer video, because our wedding day had a hybrid of a traditional western ceremony and a Korean ceremony component following it, my husband and I wondered if the full length footage could capture both aspects of our big day to the fullest extent. The final product exceeded our expectations! Watching the video brings back magical memories of our wedding, and never fails to put a huge smile on our face every time. Thank you for your professionalism and beautiful work!

    For those asking "Do I need a videographer??" the answer is YES!

    Yes, you need a videographer. And yes, you need Highway 61 films. We enjoyed every detail from planning with Jason to receiving the email that our trailer and feature film was ready. I especially loved the raw footage that we purchased on top of our package. IT IS WORTH IT! We couldn't imagine not having Jason at our rehearsal dinner too and are so grateful we had him there to film our wedding weekend.
