Adventurous Elopement, Intimate Wedding and Chapter Films
Based in NC and CA, Available Worldwide
If my work speaks to you and you want a film that captures the heart of who you are, I would love to go on this storytelling journey with you. So help me get to know you two – grab a coffee and take a few to tell me about yourselves! The more you choose to share, the better I can serve you - I love to hear who you two are and the details of your plans.
Once you submit that, you'll be redirected to a calendar to schedule a call with me so we can get to know each other, chat about your plans, and we can start envisioning your film. I can't wait to meet you!
I'm stoked to offer what I'm calling Chapter Films. If you're in an awesome chapter of your life that you want to capture on film, this is for you. Be it an engagement or proposal, couples adventure session, an anniversary, you're just loving the stage that your kids and family are in, an in-home session, you're pursuing a dream, or just because, let's tell an awesome story together!
Traveling wherever you want to be.
Based out of Orange County, CA and Charlotte, NC.
Payam and Ghazal's Emotional Vows Will Captivate You
This story is about you, so should your film be. Artistic and unique, fun and exciting, molded by your adventure together.
Your film should honor your legacy. Because your film will last. Through it your family and the generations to come will see who you were and how you lived.
Every couple has a uniquely compelling story and I'm ambitious in my desire to creatively and authentically interpret that story. I want the personality of your relationship and the energy of your wedding to be on beautiful display throughout your film.
Because of Prescott and his team, I won’t have to dream back to that night, I will get to relive it in all its glory forever. Working with Prescott felt as easy, fun, and comfortable as working with a close friend. This one video is the only tangible thing we have that takes us back to that special day."
- Janae and Cole
"The single best decision we made for our wedding day!
When we received our film we were floored by the beauty and grace they were able to capture and it was the perfect gift to remember the most wonderful day of our lives. It is something we will treasure for all of time and we look forward to share with our future family in the years to come!"
- Aly and Jason
"They are so authentic and genuinely invested in you, We always felt as if we were working with good friends!
Even though we love the photos, the story, the narrative, all the feels you get on your wedding day, are all much more tangible when portrayed through our film."
- Payam and Ghazal
"Our Westward Hearts doesn’t make wedding videos, they make films, and there's a big difference between the two.
I believe we're all living an epic story. And I don't want us to forget it. I love telling those stories. I want my films to reflect the joy and fun, the depth and gravity, the beauty and style that this time of your life consists of. These are some of the best days of your lives and they deserve to be captured and commemorated with heart and artistry.
What I'm a fan of: people that are unapologetically themselves, fun-loving people, intentional people, epic landscapes, small/intimate weddings and elopements, non-traditional visions for weddings, dramatic/beautiful light, cinematic visuals, impactful music.
I've been drawn to filmmaking and storytelling as long as I can remember. My parents were actually shocked I didn't major in film in college (I did marketing). I made fun little videos with my friends growing up, but didn't take it seriously or choose to pursue it as a career path until 2012.
Great stories captivate all of us and I'm specifically inspired by the telling of a great story, whatever the medium. Be it in the creativity and visuals of a Christopher Nolan movie, the slow and intricate, yet so compelling character development in The Crown on Netflix, Hans Zimmer's compositions that instantly make you feel so much, or J.R.R. Tolkien's incredibly thorough imagination in his writings.
I believe there's an adventure in all of us that is worth telling. It's the legacy we're leaving and while life isn't timeless, your story should be.
And I know you're wondering....no, she doesn't work with me. Believe me, I've tried to convince her of being a husband and wife business power duo, but she emphatically says no! She's a 2nd grade teacher and she's literally the best teacher, so I'm alright with it.
We met in spring of 2010 through our church and after years of friendship and her just not being that into me, we got married in spring of 2016. It was the best!
Fast forward four years, our son, Harlan, was born in August of 2020 and we are so incredibly lucky to be his parents. He's been such a great kid in every respect and we just love the heck out of him. He's changed my outlook on life dramatically. Objectively, he's also the cutest.
I grew up in SoCal, traveling around CA and beyond with my parents and sister. After leaving every place, little kid me always said "I want to live here". Jenna and I have made it a priority in our marriage to go on as many trips as possible, which is good cause I'm always day-dreaming about the next one. I can tell you about my favorites so far if you'd like. Some dreams: I really want to settle in and live in Germany and England for 4-6 months (or more) each at some point. I also have a nagging desire to do "van life" (or "RV life" since we have a kid) around the US, at least during summers. I haven't committed to either yet, but someday.
