My Story

I am a husband to my beautiful wife Sarah, Father to my two crazy boys and a follower of Jesus Christ. 

It is with a great love for filmmaking that I have been filming weddings for over 15 years.  My wife and I were married in 2002 and shortly thereafter she began filming with me.  As our family has grown, so has our company.

We are passionate about creating wedding films that actually gets watched.  We craft creative films that tell your story, with all the details and emotions of your wedding day.   

Relife Films is about quality over quantity.  We book a limited number of weddings each month so that we can deliver high quality films.

My Favorite Things


We love to travel as a family and often make several road trips each year.   We love to visit theme parks, zoos and museums.  With family in California, Oregon and Nebraska, we have lots of places to visit.  Our family loves to go on cruises together. 

Family & Pets

When I am not filming or editing, I am playing with my two boys, ages 8 and 4 years old.  We love to explore Austin, kayak on Lady Bird Lake, swim in our neighborhood pool and play video games. We recently rescued a puppy who loves to play with the boys and chew on their toys. 

Disney Decorations

I am a fan of all things Disney.  I love to decorate our house for Halloween with the Haunted Mansion theme including the singing grim grinning ghosts.   For Christmas the yard and the house get decorated with a classic Disney theme with lights synced to music.


Frequently Asked Questions

What is your videography style?

Our wedding films are the perfect combination of cinematic and documentary. The term cinematic describes an editing style that is highly polished. We use the audio from the wedding day and amazing footage to craft a film that tells your story. All of our packages include a ceremony edit or extended edit of the ceremony and reception. We describe these longer edits as a creative documentary style.

How much experience do you have?

We have been filming wedding for over 15 years. Our team has the experience of filming hundreds of weddings. Through the years we have refined our craft and had the opportunity to film weddings from many different cultures and religions.

Have you filmed at our venue?

We have had the opportunity to film at most of the Austin area venues but are always excited to get the opportunity to film at a new venue.

Who will be filming our wedding?

All of our weddings are filmed by our lead filmmaker and editor Jason Rude. We never double-book or film more than one wedding a day and all videographers on our team are trained in our style. We would love to meet with you in-person or by phone before the wedding to get to know you and learn more about your special day.


What People are Saying

“Best Money we Spent”

“Investing in a wedding video was truly the best money we spent.  It is a true testament to Jason’s work that I had family members and friends calling me in tears after watching it. The video was BEAUTIFUL and captured all the moments that meant so much to us. We also opted for the extended reception footage which was amazing because now we have all our speeches and dances recorded.”


“Positive and Personable”

“Jason has a great eye for videography and is very knowledgeable about his craft. He is a very positive and personable individual which makes him very fun to work with. It was easy to open up and be ourselves around Jason for both our love story video and our wedding day.”


“Nothing short of amazing!”

“Nothing short of amazing! Jason was a dream to work with before, during and after the wedding and I can’t express how good he is at what he does. It is painfully obvious how much thought and attention to detail and hard work he puts into what he does. Future brides take this advice: your pictures and video are the most important places to allocate the money in your budget.  I highly recommend making this investment.”
