Meet John and Nina – We are married, just not to each other
John does the video, Nina does the photo. We are married, just not to each other. We have been to over 900 weddings combined. Let that sink in for a bit. This is what we do. This is what we love. Our main goal is to help you ENJOY your wedding day. Talk about a potentially stressful day. We have been there, we know what can, and will go wrong. But when you hire us, you get not only someone to shoot your wedding, you get someone to help you make sure the timeline is right. To make sure you aren’t doing your ceremony at the wrong time, or not allowing enough time for sunset photos. We work with you before the big day to help you know that you can truly let go and ENJOY the wedding day. After all, isn’t the reason we are all doing this because you are wanting to marry the person of your dreams? We want you to be able to focus on your future spouse, not whether or not the cake is getting photographed.
We are suckers for nostalgia, emotion, and good light. We want to be like family, not the hired help. It shows in our work. It is more personal than most. We can’t believe we get to do this for a living, and don’t plan on stopping any time soon.
John Bunn – Video Guy, Dad, Husband, Taylor Swift Fanatic, The Office Trivia Winner
I am the video portion of Redeemed Productions. I grew up in the 90s and 2000’s (yay NSYNC), and married the girl of my dreams, Heather, while at college. We have two little girls and I can’t get enough of them. Want to make me cry? Talk to me about how grown my girls are, or how much they look like their mommy. We love Jesus, and are committed to honoring Him in our home and in our company. Favorite moments on a wedding day definitely include: first look with dad, anything emotional or nostalgic, and people just genuinely being there for the right reasons.
Nina Chappel – Photographer, Wife, Mom, Lover of Mac and Cheese
Nina pretty much does everything around here. Not only is she our photographer, she manages our office, and keeps John organized. She is originally from the East Coast and has been taking photos for 10 years. We always make fun of Nina at weddings because she eats like a 5 year old. Many times she has traded a filet in for a plate of mac and cheese. She’s married to Joey and they have two daughters, Tyler and Penny. Nina is a sucker for all of the emotions of a wedding day, if you’re crying, she’s crying, and is such a calming presence on your wedding day. She keeps the timeline moving, but doesn’t stress you out. You will love her, we promise.
A little more about our story
I can’t believe I started RP in 2007 out of a spare bedroom in my apartment. I can’t believe it has been more than a decade and over 500 weddings since we decided to do this thing full-time. I never imagined that we would be shooting so many love stories all over the country.
Your wedding is more than just a wedding, it is you. It is more than just a day. It is the start of two becoming one. We get the honor of watching this miracle happen right before our eyes. We get the honor of being there for you on that day. There are so many details, but they will all fade away. At the end of the day, it is just you and your spouse. That is who we shoot the wedding for. We shoot for you and your family. We shoot for your kids, and your grandkids.
The best things that happen to me, as the owner of RP, are the stories I hear from our previous brides. “I lost my dad, and now I have his voice on film.” “My daughter loves watching our film, so glad you were there to film it 5 years before she was even a thought.” The list goes on. This is why I do what I do. There is just something about the look in a couple’s eyes the moment they get to relive that day. Goosebumps on the arms as I write =)
Thank you for stopping by our site. If you love our work, let’s grab a coffee and chat! We have learned that not all couples are the right fit, and we want to make sure we are the right fit for you. I’d be honored to have my team tell the story of your wedding day. But more importantly, I want to make sure you know that we are the right fit for you. I can’t wait to hear from you!
