Jay and Mack are redefining the high-end wedding videography market. Moving away from the conventional luxury aesthetic, they're committed to crafting films that don't just feel real, but are genuinely authentic, steering clear of the overused industry buzzword version of authenticity. As VIP guests, they won’t be presenting; they'll be immersing themselves in the experience alongside fellow attendees. Their approach is personal, getting to know attendees and believing that real connections lead to genuine stories. Excited to share their journey and learn from others, they're helping foster a community where true authenticity is the ultimate luxury.

How runaway workshops impacted others

"Attending Jake & Nate's wedding workshop was like finding the perfect lens - totally in focus! Their filmmaking skills were so sharp, I felt like they could capture true love even in a dark room! The styled shoots were a blast, and connecting with other filmmakers made it a reel pleasure! Can't wait for the sequel! 🎥✨ #WeddingWorkshopMagic"



"In simple terms, this workshop has been the most valuable investment I've made in my business to date. It surpasses any camera equioment. LUT. or class I've ever taken. it vou're camera, equipment, LUT, or class I've ever taken. If you're hesitating, don't. Step off the fence and attend this workshop. You won't be disappointed. Jake and Nate, along with anyone else fortunate enough to join this workshop, are undeniably the best instructors in the industry. I won't pass up another opportunity to participate in this experience again."



"If you're considering a Runaway Workshop.. DO IT! The workshop served all levels of shooters. There was great education portion but it was even better being able to ask all host and speakers questions live or in private. I truly valued being able to network with others and it's been great keeping in contact with some of the attendees. There was plenty to take away and the swag bag was awesome and thoughtful! I can't find a reason to not go! "



"Literally, this workshop you guys put on with your team. WAS. SO. INCREDIBLE. Truly from the bottom of my heart thank you for being so open and vulnerable with everyone. To come to a workshop with so many creatives and all leaving with a sense of accomplishment and clearer visions for our futures is just beautiful. Got a solid idea of the pillars that are important to me and it's special to hear you guys prioritizing yours and seeing your business flourish. THANK YOU CHEFS!"



"Utah became the perfect destination for me as I attended the Runaway workshop all the way from California! The experience crafted by Jake and Nate was genuine and enriching, drawing in wedding filmmakers from various corners. The chance to network with fellow professionals was incredible, and the knowledge shared during the workshop was a true eye-opener. If you're serious about upping your wedding filmmaking game, this is THE workshop to attend!"



"Omg I was going to tell you guys too. I just booked a $5400 pay in full package for a photography only wedding. It's my highest package ever! Went through major mindset and business shifts since the workshop, and it's already showing up in results within less than a month of the workshop being over."



"Inspirational, motivational, and a real good time. That’s how I would describe the Runaway Vows workshop. Jake, Nate, Kaylor, and Kortney all made it a comfortable place for someone still figuring it all out to ask the silly questions and get legit advice. Not only that but make connections that I am sure will last for years to come. I would 100% take it again!! "



"Signing up for the Runaway Vows workshop was easily the best decision I've made to accelerate my business. I had the opportunity to not only learn from my idols Jake and Nate directly, but to network with incredibly talented wedding filmmakers across the country. The workshop gave me insight on how to connect with the clients I want to film and provided me amazing content I can use for years to come. Not only was the workshop educational, but it was a fun filled experience I'll cherish forever"



"Firstly, Jake & Nate are two of the most upstanding young men I've ever had the good fortune to meet. They're kind, intelligent and generous with the value they provide and the amount of themselves they put into their business. The footage I managed to capture over the course of two days is stunning, and that says more about the models, location, planning and vendors who attended than my own skill with a camera! Basically, this is "easy button" filmmaking. Attend a Runaway Vows workshop and you're guaranteed to walk away with premium quality footage as long as you back up your cards! Thanks Jake & Nate and the whole team!"
