Relive Memories For Generations


Being the first in my family to attempt to break the cycle of poverty. The videos and photos of my family and I growing up will forever be cherished. It's a great way to see how far we've come and to also know that future family members will be able to see us alive and in motion. I want to bring that surreal experience to others as well. It really does make capturing the special moments of others that much more important.

Filmmaking Masters is a local Iowa video production agency specializing in making phenomenal wedding films for generations to relive!


Hi, my name is Shounam Ches (pronounced soo-nom or tsunami like the big wave without the "i" at the end haha). I come from a small family of five. I'm the oldest sibling with two younger brothers. I'm a first-generation college student with a degree in interactive media technologies. I worked in catering for three years back in high school, as a resident assistant & as a digital marketing intern during college, as a preloader at UPS for a year, and as a digital content producer at a news station after college. A lot of different jobs along the way to get to this point but during all of that, I was consistently developing my photography, videography, and post-production skills through a variety of once-in-a-lifetime experiences over the last seven years in business.


At 24 years old, I'm now running my business full-time and it wouldn't have been possible without you! Your once-in-lifetime day deserves to be captured to its entirety and completely stress-free, so that's why I've partnered with other professional vendors I'd highly recommend for your special day for a seamless experience altogether!


BIG NOTE: If you book with recommended vendors on my website! You can get $100 off the Ruby or Diamond wedding video package!


At no point are you required to buy anything I present to you after our free consultation!


Simply reaching out is the best way for us to help make your day stress free!

Pictured next to me is my sugar momma. Without her I'd be out on the streets in a cardboard box. 😂 But seriously though, she's the love of my life and is 100% behind my vision. I wouldn't be where I am today without her. ❤️
