CONGRAtulations! This will be one of the most memorable adventures of your lives.
Just ahead you’ll learn more about Simple Love Films, my approach to wedding filmmaking, and how I serve you on your wedding day. Once you reach the end, if you have any unanswered questions, please don’t hesitate to ask. Let’s get to it!
MEET DOM, THE MAN BEHIND S.L.F.
I was born in Toronto, Canada, to Southern Italian immigrants, and luckily my parents encouraged me to learn and speak my native language. I speak Italian, Spanish and enough French to get me by. Ciao, Ca va bien? Muy lindo!
I moved to the great state of New Jersey when I was 12, and with the exception of my college years in Vermont, I’ve lived in NJ ever since. Last year my lovely fiancée Cassie and I moved to Asbury Park where we live two blocks from the beach with our black cats Tubby and Taco (aka TNT).
Besides being a filmmaker, I’m a songwriter and front-man to Like Herding Cats, my alternative indie rock band based in Brooklyn. I play seven different instruments, with the weirdest and most epic being Italian bagpipes (yep, that’s a thing!).
When I have downtime, I travel as often as I can. The Catskills, Arizona, Joshua Tree, Southern Italy, Denver and Miami are some of my favorite spots and I’m dying to make it out to the Pacific Northwest.
You’re likely to spot me over on Cassie’s Instagram stories making pizza, playing my bagpipes or dancing and vacuuming in our apartment (if you don’t have a Dyson you’re not living).
YOUR WEDDING FILM
This will be a capsule, a time stamp that you’ll forever be able to reflect on for years to come. Life is filled with challenges and it’s sometimes easy to forget how you got here in the first place. Your wedding film is a solid testament to the promises you’ve made to one another, and will help take you back to reflect and reconnect.
I love capturing the mood and emotions that fuel relationships so intimately built over time. I craft unique films illustrating simple, but profound moments thatsometimes are taken for granted. It’s the simple things in life like rainy days together in bed, strolls on the beach or hanging out by a campfire that we cherish and hold close to our hearts.
There’s two sides to every love story and I’d love to hear about you both and the sparks that ignite and drive your love. I look forward to hearing about the silly things, the experiences, and the special moments that have shapedyour relationship.
Warm, comforting, at ease, relaxed - these are a few words couples have used to describe how they felt interacting with me on their wedding day. I love getting to know my couples and have gained so many new friends in the time I’ve been documenting love stories. Tell me about yourself. Let’s meet up for a coffee or a cocktail.

Whether it be a walk on the beach, being silly at home or exploring the old town, we will capture these intimate moments and incorporate them into your highlight film adding a beautiful and cinematic element. Truly one of the best keepsakes for the years to come. (up to 4-6hours of coverage).
Save The Date Film / $1000
A different and exciting way for your friends and family to save the date.
