We may have changed our name to FOR LOVE FILMS, but it's the exact same people who have been crafting custom wedding films for our awesome couples! We just like the new name a little better :)
Your love story, cinematically told through expertly crafted films and photography.
Our couples are more than just clients - they become cherished friends. Heck, some couples still have us over for family events after 12 years!
Working closely with our couples, we develop strong connections. And that’s what making films is all about - connection.
We don't simply show up, shoot and deliver. We do so much more than that.
To create your film and photos, we start by getting to know you - your interests, your passions, your likes and dislikes. We take the time to learn about what makes you... YOU. This allows us to tell your story, with care and authenticity.
So let's sit down over some wine and sushi or burgers and beer (or Dr Pepper), and let's get to know each other. We want to get to know you, and we want you to get to know us. No other vendor will be with you as much on your wedding day as your photo and video team, it's important that not only do you see eye-to-eye, but also that we can anticipate your needs, likes and even run interference for you so you can enjoy the day you've dreamt of your whole life.
For Love Films was born from a passion for the art of filmmaking and photography, combined with a desire to create connection through storytelling. We love stories and we love to tell stories.
We tell YOUR story. Your way. FOR LOVE.
PS - Here's a good test - if you can watch our films and feel something for a couple you don't even know, imagine what we are going to do for you.

I love nothing more than telling a great love story - and what better love stories are there than weddings (that's why we changed our named from NightOwls Media to For Love Films)? Traditional church weddings, nerdy weddings, backyard weddings, same-sex weddings, elopements, adventurous weddings, in the city or in the sticks … I love them all! Combined with the passion and heart I pour into my work, the films I create are a timeless connection to your wedding day and the beginning of your love story.
But most of all? I love to get to know our couples and tell their amazing stories. It's the biggest compliment to me when a couple considers us a part of the family by the end of the night! And as soon as the dance music kicks in, I am known to get a little funky on the dance floor and even help bring others out to have a good time. It's my ultimate goal to help you enjoy your amazing wedding day and take away any stress.
When I'm not filming, I can often be found editing videos with my cats in my lap or teaching film production at DePaul University.
I’m passionate about photography and capturing the real you. My goal is to draw out and nurture your true personality, and document those magical moments full of love, emotion, and excitement! I know how to handle your overbearing Aunt Gladys and your drunk Uncle Bob. I can even handle the frat boy groomsmen your fiancé just can’t quit. I’m firm and can take charge when needed, but I with a smile and sometimes a smirk. I know when to let the moments unfold naturally...and to capture them.
I get your most camera-shy bridesmaid to cut loose. I make the most reserved couples feel comfortable and maybe even a tiny bit adventurous. This may be because I know what it’s like to be uncomfortable when people are looking at you. Or…it could also be that my tendency towards colorful language sometimes sneaks out when you least expect it. At the very least, I’ll make you laugh!
Nick is one of the most genuine people you will ever meet. He wants nothing more than to make your wedding day fun, exciting, and memorable, all while looking like a movie star!
Nick has been working with For Love Films since 2018.

As a wedding photographer, I have had the opportunity to work with Jaysin and the Night Owls Media Team on several occasions. He is one of the few wedding videographers that I feel comfortable recommending to my clients. Not only does he create great work, but he is a positive presence on the wedding day. His kindness, organization, and creativity set him above the rest. Whenever I work with Jaysin, I feel like we are truly a part of the same team. I would highly recommend him to anyone searching for their wedding videographer. You will love the result!
I would highly recommend NightOwls Media . As a working DJ, I'm used to public speaking but freeze up when on camera. Working with Jaysin made my video phobia disappear instantly and he made me very comfortable and allowed my inner personality to shine though his lens. On the other hand, I've seen Jaysin in action many times when we're lucky enough to be at the same venue and he truly cares about his clients. Jaysin stands at approximately 6'6" and has no problem getting down on his knees (or back) to get the right shot. I'm truly impressed by his work ethic, personality and genuine sense of compassion. I have a couple of more shoots with Jaysin and cannot wait for my final video promo to be complete. You definitely won’t regret choosing them to make your day unforgettable!
This guy really knows what he is doing when it comes to wedding video. I have been his second shooter and have learned a lot from this company. Highly recommended videographer.
