Katya and Matthew grew up an ocean apart. One day, nine years ago, he walked up to her during a California evening. It's amazing how life brings people together.
Matthew's parents are documentary filmmakers, and now Moab residents. His father Michael Chandler was nominated for an Academy Award for his editing in "Amadeus", a best picture winner. He worked on multiple films from the 80's and 90's, one being a personal teenage favorite of mine, "Empire Records" (Rex Manning day anyone?). Later he produced documentaries, including one for PBS. In 2015, Michale Chandler and his wife Sheila Canavan (a very successful attorney) created a documentary together that was picked up by Showtime.
I love the incredible people I meet as I film weddings, and I am always grateful to couples and their families for trusting me to witness and capture important, intimate life events.
