Meet the Owner
"At ValCinema, we find pride in having a “people first” mindset, a value that stems from how I was raised. I want every client to feel valued every step of the way, but also beyond product delivery. We have tried to accomplish great things on our own, but true success has been found when we grow as a team to best serve our clients."

Shawn Arndt, wife Sarah, son Jackson
ValCinema Weddings was founded in 2017 by two brothers, passionate about making cinematic wedding videos.
Previous to ValCinema, Shawn went from working fast-food, to bank teller, to selling insurance.
In 2018, Shawn was brought in to lead the sales department, and proceeded to become a co-owner in February 2019.
For the next two years, Shawn continued to find immense joy in being only a small part of a company that gets to create lasting memories for clients, through film and photograph. As film being something he regrets not having for his wedding day, he hopes to extend the value of it, so you not only see memories, but you get to relive them.
In September 2021, transitions took place, as his first son, Jackson was born and his latest acquisition being the business.
ValCinema is a full-service wedding videography and photography company, with goals to make beautiful, cinematic wedding films available to everyone, which is why we now offer our newest product, YouFilm.
