meaning: love fortune
I'm Mikaela, wedding videographer based out of Virginia Beach, VA. Shooting love stories on the East Coast, the moody Redwoods of California, beaches of Oregon, and anywhere my couples need! I've always had a love for LOVE and documenting the important moments we live. I first started out Vlogging which quickly grew into a drive for cinematography.
I launched THE AIKO FILM CO. AS A PASSION IN 2020 WHILE TRYING TO PLAN MY OWN WEDDING. I REMEMBER TYPING INTO MANY A GOOGLE SEARCH BAR .. “LGBTQIA+ INCLUSIVE VIDEOGRAPHERS” OR “HOW TO KNOW IF A VENDOR ACCEPTS GAY CLIENTS?” WITH ALMOST EVERY RESULT LEAVING ME UNSURE OR WITH VERY FEW OPTIONS. INCLUSIVITY FOR STRAIGHT AND GAY COUPLES IS SOMETHING SO IMPORTANT TO ME. I KNOW HOW TOUGH IT CAN BE TO FIND THAT WEDDING FILMMAKER THAT WILL CELEBRATE YOUR UNION, WHOLEHEARTEDLY AND WITH COMPLETE SUPPORT. NOT ONLY AM I A PART OF THE QUEER COMMUNITY, BUT I AM OBSESSIVELY PASSIONATE ABOUT CAPTURING THE LOVE YOU SHARE. YOU DESERVE A FILM THAT’S INTIMATELY BEAUTIFUL, TRUE TO WHO YOU ARE, AND AUTHENTIC. ONE THAT’S A TIMELESS PIECE OF ART OF A MONUMENTAL MOMENT IN TIME. I WOULD LOVE NOTHING MORE THAN TO BRING THAT STORY TO LIFE.
Connection. For me, I want to truly know my couples. Not just on the level of tell me how you met. But on a let’s grab brunch on a free Sunday, double date board game night if you’re free kind of way. Connecting together to create everything you want for your wedding day film. I believe knowing my couples, is knowing how to tell their personal love story.
Let's talk, cause I’d love to get to know you!
