My name is Tom Ipes IV, professionally known as Ipes, and I've been filming since high school in the early 2000s. I've been a movie lover my whole life, and I love producing, directing, and creating films of many genres. While in high school, I created many videos with friends and some for school projects that even my teachers told me they thought I'd make great films one day as a business. While in college, I created a documentary film about a famous music composer named William Wagner. My teacher was so impressed that she requested a copy to share with her other classes, and she still uses the film.
After school, I pursued film work as an entrepreneur and gained experience filming music videos, corporate videos, sporting events, and so much more! However, weddings I had not yet been involved with it until my late father mentioned that wedding videography would probably be a great genre to get into. So, in 2006, several friends were getting married and hired me to film their weddings. It was a blast, and instantly I was hooked! For many years after, my progression of wedding videography focused on specializing in documentary-style wedding videography, AKA wedding cinematography.
