Hi, I'm Tom Ipes IV, but most people know me professionally as Ipes. My love for filming started in high school during the early 2000s. Movies have always been my passion, and I truly enjoy the intricacies of producing, directing, and bringing various film genres to life. Throughout high school, I crafted numerous videos, from fun projects with friends to more formal school assignments. Many of my teachers saw potential in my work, often remarking that they envisioned me running a successful film business in the future. In college, I took on an ambitious project - a documentary about the renowned music composer, William Wagner. My professor was so taken with the final piece that she not only wanted a copy for herself but also continues to showcase it to her classes to this day.

Following my education, I ventured into the entrepreneurial world of filmmaking. My portfolio expanded with music videos, corporate productions, and even sporting events. Yet, weddings remained an uncharted territory until my late father hinted at the potential in wedding videography. Heeding his advice in 2006, I filmed weddings for a few friends tying the knot. The experience was exhilarating, and I found my passion. From then on, my journey in wedding videography took a dedicated turn towards the art of documentary-style wedding videography, commonly known as wedding cinematography.
