About Us { Zachariah and Stillwater Cinematography }


The Magic of Stillwater Cinematography began when Zachariah began sharing what inspired him! From photos of the epic nature of the canyons of Zion to videos from the tropical isle of Kauai, he followed his passion for sharing the love!

Zachariah remembers crying at a young age when watching family videos, seeing how everyone has grown and changed while staying together. We began in 2010 and are a team of creatives with warm open hearts that enjoy seeing the best in people.

We make movies for your family, friends and future generations to come to see what your life was like! We do our best to capture the essence of who you are. We put great care into each movie to be unique to you!

We believe the world gets better every day. Stillwater Cinematography is here to share the Joy!

About Zachariah

I am grateful to be a witness to amazing moments in life. I am grateful to be good at what I do, because I have practiced and explored my creativity for half of my life.

Before making Movies, my passion was with computers and music. Being a DJ and making music on the computer since the late 90s. I loved how music could uplift us anytime, anywhere and bring us together. Now, I am able to bring together my love of music with my love for beauty!

I live for being around happy people in love! I am able to capture amazing photos and video when you are feeling free to share your authentic self with me, so please let me know who you are and feel free to be you! I look forward to meeting and serving you!

If you have a good heart and enjoy life, please contact me! I love meeting new people that enjoy beautiful art and want to share their love story with the world!

Contact Me anytime!
