We’re here for the ultimate expressions, the grand gestures, the precious moments, and the finest hours. At Cloud Craft Studios, we strive to capture the unique beauty of your most momentous occasion. With over a decade of film production and editing experience, our goal is to create timeless pieces of art that you and yours can cherish forever.
Cloud Craft Studios was founded in 2016 by Dave Kemper, a videographer and photographer, passionate about creating magic from simple moments and Maria Katayama, a mother of two and Central Texas police officer.
Dave has always been drawn to visual imagery, taking photos as a kid, falling in love with videography and graphic design in high school, and working at Apple for several years where he was immersed in state-of-the-art technology. With the help of my co-founder, Maria, we are able to take all of this experience and start the journey of a lifetime.
While on his journey Dave fell in love with his fiancé and best friend, Sarah Dumas. She grew up in Central Missouri, the daughter of two pastors, with a degree in strategic communications and experience shooting and directing films for non-profits.
Sarah and Dave met in their hometown while he was photographing an event, initially connecting over our passion for photo, video, and creating small masterpieces that make significant impacts.
Dave and Sarah are now leading the team of videographers at Cloud Craft Studios while also planning their own August 2019 wedding. They strive to capture each detail of others' big day – just as they hope to have their own captured in August. So they get it. they really do.
It’s such a thrilling experience, to fall in love, get engaged, and plan a wedding together. It’s also a lot of work and chaos, with a million decisions to make along the way. At Cloud Craft we know how decision fatigue creeps in quickly when you’re selecting a venue and florist and caterer and the seating chart. Oh, the seating chart. So let us make this decision easy for you: We would be honored to capture your day and make your moment last a lifetime.
