OUR TEAM

Adrienne Allisononeoakphotography-10 (1)
administrator

My name is Adrienne and I am the proud wife and mother to this amazing crew.

My background is 10 years in the corporate business world. Processes, problem solving and spreadsheets were my every day (nerd alert- I loved it). My world changed when I became a mom and time with my kiddos became priority.

I now have the opportunity to see creative geniuses partner with our couples to create a beautiful video that will be relived for years to come! Who wouldn’t want to be a part of that?! My wedding day was truly the best day of my life and I want that for every couple who contacts us! I will gladly take care of the spreadsheets while they make your films.

Matthew Moore
creative director

I am husband, a father, and a filmmaker.

Growing up, I was terrible at typical forms of art which caused me to believe I lacked creativity. As a teenager, I gave up on being creative. Until my 25th birthday. My wife generously bought me a Canon 7D I had been begging for. A year later, I filmed my first wedding with that Canon 7D, and the rest is history.

I’ve shot over 150 weddings and each is unique and beautiful. I find the entire process fun and fulfilling.  From the first email we receive, to the wedding day, to sharing the finished films…it is a fantastic experience that never gets old.

videographer

My name is Christian DaCosta and this is my beautiful wife Amy and our little pup Decker.

Growing up, I saw myself pursuing business. Instead, I become a Filmmaker. After high school, I lived in Germany for a year going to school and randomly started making videos for fun. Soon, I realized I loved filming stories and creating visual stories. This love for film making turned into a career I am passionate about.

Today I’m truly living out a dream. I can’t express how much I love what I do. I’ve been fortunate enough to travel the world and film amazing stories. All of this wouldn’t be possible without God. I give all glory to Him for all the good that I do.

Andrew Johnson
assistant creative director

When I was younger, I would steal my moms’ point & shoot camera.  After filling up the memory card with “creative” video clips, I would edit them and see what I could create. This jump started my passion for storytelling and filmmaking.

I’ve now been lucky enough to shoot dozens of weddings over the past 5+ years. Who knew that mom’s point & shoot would turn into a passion and career that I deeply enjoy and find purpose in. I am excited to be a part of what Ampersand Family is creating and getting to know our couples.
