“I started out shooting Weddings. And one of the first things that I noticed was the Wedding videographers were all sort of doing the same thing. As a wedding filmmaker, I never want to feel like I'm giving people a template. I know the couple is so much more than that day... it's not just a wedding story.”

Mae B. Films has been featured in 100 Layer Cake, Style Me Pretty, Smashing the Glass, The Every Girl,
