Matrimoments Productions is a digital wedding videography business based on the East side Cincinnati, Ohio. It began for one reason: to give newlyweds an affordable, beautiful keepsake that they’ll be able to appreciate for decades. We had seen too many “Wedding Videos” that were just boring. They had no music, terrible sound, and they rarely ever captured everything that was happening. Quite some time ago, we had been running a small business renting A/V equipment. We were constantly approached by disappointed brides who had their weddings taped by relatives who didn’t really know what they were doing. After helping several brides salvage their videos, we decided to start our own service.
Shawn Young (pictured above) is the owner and lead filmmaker. Shawn grew up in Sardinia, Ohio and attended college at Kentucky Christian University. Much of his inspiration to begin making films came from class projects and student video competitions. After graduating, he worked with different companies and organizations that handled audiovisual presentation for churches, and eventually found himself leading a student ministry. He still continues to work with youth today, as he leads a week-long camp called “Be Creative,” which works to get students interested in photography, filmmaking, and audio production. Shawn’s wife Leslie Young (Also pictured above – the one with hair) is the second filmmaker at most weddings. Shawn and Leslie have two children: Owen and Nora.
