Hi, my name is Loyd and I love movies. Going to see them. Studying them. And making them.

I went to see “Star Wars” when I was about 6 years old and I’ve been a film geek ever since. When I got the chance to shoot a friend’s wedding in 2001, I didn’t know that it would lead me to a business and career that I absolutely enjoy. I created Loyd Calomay Films (along with it’s sister company Red 5 Studios) and had one goal in mind: to make wedding films as cool as the movies that I love to watch.

But making movies is just one of the things I enjoy. Today, I spend most of my time with my wife Hazel (going on our 15th anniversary in 2011) and our 1 year old son Jude. Hazel and I have been together since college and even in those early days, art brought us together. She is just as creative as I am (and a whole lot smarter). You might even see her shooting alongside me. Definitely my better half. Jude is the perfect blending of his two parents. Got his good looks from his mommy and a love for toys and gadgets from his daddy. My collection of action figures, vehicles and movie memorabilia is now his.

I am truly blessed to have my family, a job that I love, and a talent that I can use to serve others.
