Michael and Melanie Rudiger are a husband-and-wife team who film weddings throughout the Southeast of the United States. Based in New Orleans, Louisiana, but always ready to travel, Michael and Melanie bring years of wedding and filmmaking experience to NOLA Wedding Films.
Michael and Melanie met, coincidently, while shooting a wedding. Michael was the videographer and Melanie was the photographer’s second shooter for the wedding. Friendship, passion for capturing weddings on camera, and eventually romance brought these two together in life and business to create NOLA Wedding Films.
Michael and Melanie both have extensive backgrounds in wedding video and photography, a perfect marriage in both life and business to unify and define the style and panache of NOLA Wedding Films.
Michael is the “Story” (he follows and captures the bride and groom, filming the main events of the day), and Melanie is the “Style” (she focuses on the details of the wedding that makes the viewer feel as if they are there at the wedding). Their moto is “Stronger Together” as they work hard through each wedding shoot to challenge each other and grow stronger together.
NOLA: An acronym for New Orleans, LA
