Drake Whelton of White Knuckle Films Wedding Videography Services

Hey, Drake Whelton here! 

I'm always chasing the perfect shots and I'm starting to wonder if my camera has seen more of the world than I have... I'm living the 'Exporting... Please Wait' lifestyle. When I'm not behind the lens, you'll find me untangling cables and searching for the closest thing to caffeine because I can't drink it... But for real, I am the owner of White Knuckle Films! I've been messing with camera's since I was a child. A graduate from Delta College's Electronic Media Broadcasting/Film Production class of 2015, I've been working consistently in my home town of Sagina​w and across Michigan and the US to grow local businesses through multimedia content, along with artists and couples looking for someone to capture their special day. I love to bring story's to life through a mix of photo's, videos and music. My experiences with different cultures from around the world has left an everlasting impact, so get ahold of me here and let me help you reach your goals!
