From an early age, Matt was always behind a camera. He grew up creating short films for fun with his best friend, and now co-cinematographer, Landon Harris. Those early childhood experiences shaped Matt’s love for the art of storytelling. His passion for filmmaking carried into college where he majored in Video Production/Communications with a minor in Business & Writing at Liberty University. After gradating in May of 2012, Matt and Landon launched Matt Rouse Films and signed their first wedding video contract.
Matt Rouse Films shoots a variety of films for many different vendors, but specialize in wedding productions. Having filmed many weddings since 2012, Matt and Landon are well-seasoned wedding cinematographers. Their friendship & passion for filmmaking still inspire them to this day!
In May of 2015, Matt got to be on the other side of the camera while he married the love of his life, Meredith, who is now Matt Rouse Films’ business manager. Meredith does a lot of behind the scenes work like talking with clients, event planning, blogging, marketing, and serving as an assistant during video shoots. They not only work well as a team in their marriage, but within their business as well. Matt and Meredith both love the Lord and are excited for the opportunity to show others the love & beauty of Christ through storytelling! Matt & Mer recently moved their wedding videography business to Greenville, SC and are excited to continue telling stories around the beautiful Greenville area!
“I especially love producing wedding films because we get the privilege to witness a remarkable commitment of love. After falling in love with my wife, I know what a special and life-changing moment it is when God brings two people together forever. The process of capturing memories, working with light & colors, finding the right songs, and piecing together meaningful sequences never gets old. It’s an amazing experience to see all those elements come together to tell someone else’s love story!” -Matt
Landon has been filming ever since he was a young lad. He started off shooting video for the TV ministry at the church where he and Matt met. As a talented writer, screenwriting has always been a strength of his, which is vital in piecing together a memorable story. Filming a wedding is a huge task spread out over the course of one day. Having a second videographer is what makes us so successful in capturing every little detail. Landon married the love of his life, Maryanne, on August 1, 2015!
