R.E.M. stands for "remembering every moment." Our company's mission is to produce high-quality cinematic and photographic experiences that capture all of the unique and magical instances that come out of weddings.
But "remembering every moment" can mean so much more than just filming and photographing wedding events. Our staff is focused on going "beyond" the foundations of our company. The talented and distinctive staff explore many interests whether that be from filming short films and documentaries to photographing travel sites and nature.
We would love to share with our R.E.M. community some of the work that our staff has done and we look forward to expanding our portfolio for years to come.
Bobbin with Babes
What better way to occupy yourself during the Corona Pandemic than to film a fishing show on the beautiful Chain O' Lakes in Antioch, IL. A long time friend had suggested to Robert about filming a TV show about fishing. Since the majority of weddings had been postponed due to Covid-19, Robert believed this to be the perfect opportunity to film a hybrid fishing-cooking TV show with a very charismatic and personable host, Tony Bobbins. Even if you aren't a fishing connoisseur, this show is bound to keep you entertained.

A Sunset Ridge Story - Building a New Generation
One of Robert Mazur's greatest passion projects was directing a short documentary about his home town's elementary school of Northfield. The school community of Sunset Ridge reached out to Robert in 2016 with the interests of having him create a film about transiting from an old facility to a new state of the art learning center. Two years later, the film premiered in the new school auditorium to the entire student population with a 2nd screening for the Village of Northfield.

The Humble Design Project
For her Bat Mitzvah project, Sofia Fisher elected to give back to the community by participating in a unique and thoughtful project for a non-for-profit organization based out of Chicago, Humble Design. Sofia, her family, and friends, spent the morning choosing toys, board games, books, even creating arts and crafts for a family that will be moving into their newly furnished home in just a few days. Stay tuned for the end when the family walks into their home for the very first time. What an emotional moment!
