In 2003 Tim Hicklin worked in the insurance industry and was looking for a more creative avenue in which to earn a living. Having graduated from Eastern Washington University in 1976 in Radio-Television, he has always had a passion for the industry of entertainment.
in 2003 Tim had just purchased a small video camera for his own use and also acquired his first Macintosh computer from his brother.
He began to entertain the thought of starting a video production company, and what better way than to start videotaping weddings on the weekends while still holding down his day job?
Tim states, “I placed a flyer that I made on my computer in a dress shop of a friend of mine, stating that a local start-up company needed to shoot a wedding for a demo reel.” Lo and behold he got a call. “Can you videotape my daughter’s wedding?” He states, “it’s amazing when you have a gift for something you just know what to do and how to do it.”
But his real gift showed itself when he sat down to edit the footage he had captured. He states “sometimes I would be up until early morning, still editing. When the creative juices start flowing, you just can’t stop.”
To this day, Tim states that the first wedding Storybook Weddings ever shot is still one of his best. He and his wife Patty have only gotten better over the years. “I’ll admit I was a little nervous doing something I had never done before and having people counting on me. But when you have a dream, you just have to step out.”
Tim Is now and has been since 2006, full-time shooting weddings and other video projects. Patty no longer carries a camera, but she had an integral part in the start and building of Storybook Weddings, and she still helps Tim with the editing, giving a perspective of a new set of eyes before the final product goes out.
Since then many other video projects have come their way and they continue to stretch their creative abilities in other video projects.
