this new film has a special place in our hearts



this is my uncle, tom. he met my aunt, virginia, on a new york train recently after she'd been divorced. and, just like that, he went from being a single guy living in nyc to a father of six living in utah. he's a wonderful man: a loving husband, an amazing artist (teaches at the u of u), and a great dad.

we were so honored to get to film this night of love and celebration.

and, if you haven't already, we'd really appreciate it if you took a moment and liked our new little business, kelly arts: films, on facebook.

This is really special and beautiful. It's amazing how the power of film allows you to feel things even when you don't know the people in the film. Thanks for sharing- this brought a big smile to my face.

This is such a sweet video! When he walked into the place and everyone yelled SURPRISE!!! I really felt like I was there and got a little emotional inside! You guys havea great way of capturing those emotions in these films!! Love you guys! And loved seeing you and hero IN this video as well! Huge fan from AZ!

I love all your videos! I love all the moments and people you've captured on video. I could tell just from your uncle's smile that he must be a really good man. Can't wait to see the next one!

This is amazing! You guys are so skilled at capturing the love everyone has for each other on film! I have never wanted to make a family video before but each video you post makes me change my mind! Someday I'm gonna get a video made by you two! :)
