About Us

Lev and Karen are partners in life and in work. They created Traveling Tiger Wedding Films out of their excitement for sharing a couple’s joy through film! 

After all, film is what brought them together. They met at the Northwest Film Center School of Film in Portland, Oregon, while she was working there and he was earning his Level III Certificate in Filmmaking. 

Some things Lev and Karen love... their work, playing chess during breakfast, romance, traveling, taking their dogs to the dog park, hiking... 

One of their first adventures together was fulfilling their dream of hiking the Choquequirao Trek through the Andes Mountains of Peru. On the seventh and last day, when they reached the top of the mountain Huayna Picchu, overlooking Machu Picchu, Lev proposed! They were married near one of their favorite hiking spots in the Columbia River Gorge. For their honeymoon, they hiked the Camino de Santiago, starting in Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France, hiking across Northern Spain to Santiago, and then ending the trek at "the end of the earth," Finisterre, Spain.

Lev and Karen would love to meet with you and hear about your vision for your special day! They will film and edit a spectacular and moving wedding film for you and your loved ones as though they were doing their own wedding, with creativity and care. 

Congratulations on your engagement! We’d love to help your wedding day memories live on, by capturing the best of your day to enjoy again and again!
