Hey yall, we're Zach & Katie! Destination wedding videographers; retired college athletes; wanderers; (big) dreamers; "Survivor" junkies; and, most importantly, best friends. 

The kind of love we have is the kind of love we aim to capture. That "can't-eat, can't-sleep, reach-for-the-stars, over-the-fence, World Series kind of stuff."

Colorado is home. Although, we both grew up in Michigan, and spend our winters on the Big Island of Hawaii! But don't hesitate to take us anywhere... we're already hopping on the plane.

Water & whimsy

Welcome, friends!

Our mission:

If you're looking for more of an untraditional approach and product, you're in the right place. Our goal is to be so much more than a "vendor" to you (cringe)! We want to get to know you... become friends with you... and provide you a unique experience from start to finish. On wedding day, we want to capture the real you - not the posed, staged, stuffy you. Clapping the mud off your hiking boots, stopping the car for more beer, squeezing each other's bums as you walk by... you know, that kind of stuff. It's those perfectly imperfect moments that we eat right up.

**Here at Water & Whimsy, we do not discriminate! No matter who you love or what you look like, we can't wait to chat more about your adventure!


"I was so obsessed with my film. Y'all incorporated exactly what I asked for. I like that my video was special to me, it was unique and I feel like it captured our vibe. It brought back all the feels and I cry happy tears every time I watch it. I loved the voice overs of special parts of the day and the candidness of the film. To be honest, there were so many parts of the film that while I was watching that didn't even realize y'all had captured that. I liked that I never felt uncomfortable or like there was a camera in my face. It was such a fun experience. All my guest enjoyed the 2 of you. I loved the drone footage, SO HAPPY that was an option. YES I would most definitely recommend to any couples looking for a videographer. This was by far some of the best money I spent on my wedding. THANK YOU!!!"

By far some of the best money I've spent

"Our experience of working with Water and Whimsy was truly amazing. We replanned our whole wedding in just over a month and Katie was so helpful, I'd like to say she was our second wedding planner ;) The replanning process was stressful, but she was there to help, give ideas, and just listen... all the things we needed in such a confusing time. We are SO OBSESSED with our video. We can't turn it off and we are crossing our fingers that video's can somehow soon be displayed as art work in a home?!?! The way the music matches with the footage is just so good, especially in our highlight. Not only does it capture our love so well, but it captures the whole night spot on. We wanted our wedding to be one that was emotional, heartfelt, but also a big party with our favorite people. We haven't once pressed play and been able to hide a tear. We will forever continue to recommend them to every friend of ours soon to be married, we would be doing a dis service if we didn't."

"We absolutely loved our film from Water & Whimsy! They captured so many intimate moments and details throughout the day. It was beautiful to see our wedding day from an outside perspective. Our experience working with Katie and Zach was amazing through and through. They stayed in touch with us tons before our special day and made sure we were on the same page with everything! The day of was also spectacular. They are such an amazing couple and we got along with them so well! They helped to make us feel special and comfortable throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend Water & Whimsy to any friends I have getting married! They went above and beyond with our video, including aspects that we had not even asked for but were so grateful to see!"

They stayed in touch with us tons before the big day.

We cannot explain how amazing zach & katie are to work with.

We cannot stop smiling when we watch our wedding video! Zach & Katie did an absolutely amazing job capturing our day and turning it into a special video we will have forever. We cannot explain how AMAZING Zach & Katie are to work with. On wedding days, there are so many people involved (vendors, guests, wedding party, etc.) and they made the day nothing but fun -- no stress! I cannot recommend these two enough, we cannot say enough good things about them as people, professionals and videographers! <3

We want your wedding/elopement film to overwhelm you with nostalgia. We hope, 20 years from now, that it makes you blast a slow song, and dance in the kitchen; snuggle up on the couch, and share a bottle of wine; we hope that it’s a constant reminder of your love for each other for the rest of your lives.

It's all about
