Jeremiah Cox of ParkLife Films is one of our favorite local videographers! His storytelling abilities are like something out of a fairytale and almost makes us wish we were videographers instead of photographers because the words and emotion captured in his films are so incredibly special. Check out his break out classes at Reset 2016! … and make sure to take a look at his videos here!
