Learn more about this one-of-a-kind couple who travels the globe to film love stories, one couple at a time.
For the past 10 years, Mike and Ali Kamper have filmed hundreds of weddings coast to coast, in over 15 states, and even internationally.
Happy Kamper Films is a husband and wife videography team who creates commercial and wedding films. The business was born 10 years ago when Alison bought a camera to take pictures of her handmade jewelry. Not long after, requests began to file in for her to take pictures of their families. The photography business grew and grew, and Happy Kamper Films was born.
“(The inspiration behind the company) comes from our love to tell stories, whether they are for small businesses or for couples getting married. Our inspiration comes from the ones we are working with and our own vision as we interact,” says Mike, adding that since each film is centered around a wedding, the emotion and memory behind the shots are the true motivation. “(When it comes to film), emotion comes much easier. Movement and sound add so much more depth. When you add music and audio, you can retell an amazing story with emotion.”
Happy Kamper Films is based out of Ohio, but for majority of the year, you can find Mike and Ali traveling across the US in their cozy camper. “Wedding films have taken us to two countries and over 15 states,” says Mike. “We have traveled through many more states in our RV as we adventure around the US.”
In 2020, their travel schedule on their website entails places such as Mississippi, Texas, Arizona, Italy and Louisiana…in just the first 5 months! According to their website, “At Happy Kamper Films, we truly love having great adventures, meeting new people, experiencing life, getting to work in a really fun way and most importantly, going just about anywhere to film your love story.”
