Hey, I'm Eric. But everyone calls me Doli (Dah-Lee), short for Dolister. And Dolister sounds like Hollister, just with a D and 1 L! So that's who I am, a beard enthusiast, cat dad, coffee addict. But you're probably wondering why I started all this and why I keep doing it.
I have been a passionate videographer since an early age. When I was born, my mom was gifted a camcorder to document our lives. I quickly became fascinated by the camera and loved to show off whenever the red light was on; that I was being recorded. She used the camera to document our everyday lives, capturing not just special occasions but also simple moments such as playing with our dog or giving an apartment tour. These recordings became precious to me and helped me cope with the loss of my mom when she passed away in 2009, when I was 15.
Fast forward a few years, and I had evolved my passion into a full-fledged business, creating a variety of videos including wedding films, music videos, real estate, product, and corporate work. But despite my busy schedule, I always held weddings in high regard and felt a great responsibility to document the big and small moments that often go unnoticed. This became even more personal to me after I lost my father in 2021, and once again turned to the videos I had captured to remember and honor him.
I understand the importance of capturing and preserving the memories of life's biggest moments, as well as the small, fleeting ones that we may forget. I also understand that not everyone is fortunate enough to have these memories, so it is my mission to provide that for them. I strive to tell the unique story of each couple and document the faces and perspectives of everyone who is a part of their special day. I am driven to create a lasting legacy that they will treasure for a lifetime.
In addition to showcasing my skills as a videographer, I have also created two short films in memory of my mother and father. Each film offers a unique perspective on their lives and personalities, and I hope that they provide insight into who I am and why I am so dedicated to my craft.
