Our Story

"Alan and I opened Waters Productions in late 2021, after we decided to stay and set roots into the New River Valley community. We both worked in New York for five years as media production professionals across audio, film, television, and theatre. At the end of 2019 we began work on opening our own production & recording studios, but amidst the Covid-19 Pandemic, we moved to Christiansburg so that we could be closer to our families. Between the two of us we have over a decade of professional production experience, and after having to cancel our own original ceremony and reception, we decided to focus on creating a company built around capturing those special moments for others.

At Waters Productions, we aim to capture the moments that make life beautiful and worth celebrating. Leveraging our background in audio, film, television, and theatre, we are infusing storytelling into wedding films and portraits, creating narratives that echo the joyous moments, the laughter, the tears, and the love in the air."

Who We Are

      Hi! We're Alan and Rachel Waters, the husband and wife duo behind Waters Productions! We met at a little theatre company in Vermont as interns. After a second summer working there together, we made the move to NYC to continue our work in theatre production. Alan primarily worked in lighting and sound, while Rachel worked as a scenic artist and wardrobe. We got engaged in March 0f 2019 where we met. When the COVID-19 pandemic began we moved back to Virginia, where Rachel is originally from. We got married in October 2020, in a small ceremony with just our immediate families and a few friends. We have since made our roots in the New River Valley, and couldn't be happier surrounded by our community and the mountains.


      We brought on Emily Priddy (pictured top right) as our assistant at the end of 2022. She has been a great addition to the team and we cannot wait to see how we grow with her!

      When we aren't capturing memories, we can be found at our local breweries and restaurants, playing D&D, watching HIMYM and cuddling with our 3 cats (Malvolio, Chance, and Archie), taking our mini-dachshund (Schnitzel) to the dog park, and volunteering at the Montgomery Museum and Downtown Christiansburg Inc. working to make our community stronger.
