Meet the Walkers

Rio and Tane are wedding videographers who met at college in 2019 while attending Utah Valley University. They were in a business Spanish class together (Rio's major and Tane's minor) when their teacher assigned them to a group project. Rio slid into his DMs, and the rest became history.

Originally from Southern California, Rio adores the sun, while Tane, hailing from Utah, has a penchant for snow. To compromise, they now reside by the beach in Southern California, following the mantra of 'happy wife, happy life.' They appreciate the unique beauty each state offers and delight in capturing weddings in these locations.

Videography has been Rio's passion since teenage years, and they have since shared their knowledge with and trained Tane in the art. Both avid travelers, filming luxury weddings has allowed them to visit stunning destinations worldwide.

Choosing to get married themselves in Colorado (as they have a soft spot for beautiful mountain weddings) at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic, Rio and Tane understand the stress and challenges that come with planning such significant events. Their goal is to alleviate pressure from couples, allowing them to savor their special day while immortalizing the genuine emotions on film for them to cherish and replay for years to come.

Our dream wedding

Aug 26, 2020

We have a special place in our hearts for intimate elopements & mountain weddings.

What started out as the most stressful week of our lives, quickly turned to the best. We relocated to my aunts beautiful, woodsy backyard in Colorado (one of the best places to elope in our slightly biased opinion!), with those that were most important to us attending.

We hiked a few minutes into the mountains behind their house, to the perfect, secluded spot and set up a couple of rows of chairs for our loved ones to witness our ceremony. We lined the small aisle with different rugs and over-sized pampas. My younger brother quickly got his license to marry (oops) and was the one to marry us; one of my favorite memories from this day.

We celebrated all night long with wood fire pizza and waffles, laughing and enjoying time together as family. We danced to ABBA under the stars and even still had our sparkler exit. As Tane and I drove off from our wedding, it started to rain, making it the perfect ending to our perfect day.

Do it. Ditch the big wedding! We are so grateful we did.

Tane and I had planned our dream wedding up in Northern California in the Redwood Forest. After months of planning, we finally felt like we had everything ready to go. Everyone's tickets were bought, stays were arranged, vendors were chosen and paid, it was time to enjoy.

Exactly ONE WEEK before our wedding date, we received a call from the venue informing us that the Nor Cal fires had gone through the venue, and there was no way we could get married there the following week. Talk about pure PANIC! Those months and long nights of planning every detail went out the door, and we were back to square one. Never mind we had to do it in less than a week.

I bet you can already tell where our love for micro weddings and elopements was born. I quickly saw the beauty in the simplicity that only small, intimate weddings can bring. The focus went from making our guests happy and perfecting every last detail to, us and the commitment we were making to eachother.

" All I can say is WOW. "

Kind Words

We used Rio and her mother as our elopement videographer and photographer for our intimate elopement in Zion in February and it was such a wholesome and fun experience. She made us feel so comfortable and really added to the special day. She knew how important it was for us to have a great video as our family couldn’t be there due to Covid. From the sneak peak to the whole video, her work is AMAZING. We are so blown away and so thankful. The amazing energy that she puts off is enough of a reason to hire her. Would absolutely recommend her for any and every event. Thank you again for everything!
