Mel Rodriguez

Mel Rodriguez Wedding Videographer in Peoria, IL

Why did you decide to become a videographer?

I’ve always had a camera in my hands since I was 12, and always in a different kind of media. But where I decided to have a camera, I decided to document moments in my life, from concepts to portraits. I am always looking to grow as an artist.

What is your favorite memory from an event you’ve shot?

One was at a wedding that was at a park, young and unafraid. When they read their vows the started to choke up on the story of their relationship. A tear on the bride’s face as the sun is gleaming and the wind and water shake…I couldn’t hold back: I cried!

What is your favorite thing about being a videographer?

For sure meeting new people! I love being a part of someone’s family and their collective memory: a part of their history.

What makes your work stand out?

My personality! I like to think a piece of every great aspect of myself in everything I produce.

What is your favorite part of an event?

The dancing! I love to dance and I am always shotting and always dancing 🙂

What is something about you most people don’t know?

I love eggs – they are the BEST cheap food!
