Who dis?

Merbit= Hobbit + Mermaid / Videographer / Photographer / Magical Creature

I am a New York transplant born of a Danish mother and an Austrian father; I graduated summa cum laude from Purchase College with a BA in Cinema Studies.

I believe in truth, compassion, and using art to improve the collective unconscious.
I consider myself a magical creature of sorts. I love using film as my magical, storytelling extension.

An avid filmgoer I strive to combine the lexicon of cinematic storytelling to capture the realism of everyday life.

I am a certified Remote Pilot In Command which is a fancy way to say I can fly my drone almost* anywhere for professional reasons (weddings, real estate, surveying, etc.).




Truth, beauty, freedom and above all else LOVE. I borrow this from my idol Baz Luhrmann and his film, Moulin Rouge. Yes it’s corny and a little bit cheesy but so am I. In all of my work, I strive to illuminate these core values- the basis of human existence. Every person is unique in their own right even if the concept of weddings and marriage is not. Through my films, I hope to show the truth of who you are as a couple. From the defining details you have chosen to the loving words you speak I am here to capture these once in a lifetime moments so you will forever be able to relive the most powerful day of your lives.

I have always been obsessed with the fantasy and universal themes that Lord of the Rings represents. What makes the story so powerful is the idea that even the smallest person can change the course of the world. There is immense beauty in the simplicity of this idea and it speaks directly to my heart.

"When planning our wedding, the video was my top priority but the family’s last. I fought long and hard to work it into the budget, and everyone agrees it was the best decision we made when planning! Diana with Backlight Creative encompassed our day perfectly, and we cannot stop watching the short film she made for us. The only regret we have is not choosing the longer time option! She is so very talented, and you will not be disappointed!"

"Diana was so confident, competent, and fun to have as a videographer! We were considering not going with video due to our budget, but I'm so glad that we did as the results have been my favorite part of our wedding and have helped keep the joy alive! I rewatch the cinematic short whenever I need a little boost of love. Diana did a great job of getting beautiful, intimate shots without being invasive. The drone action was on point!! She also did my makeup when my other person canceled last minute, so maybe she should get 6 stars?"

"Diana is a truly talented videographer with an eye for capturing precious moments. Receiving our short vignettes was such much fun. After seeing the first one, we waited in anticipation and giddiness to see the rest. When we finally got the final product, it was amazing! We absolutely love it!! The wooden box it came in was so thoughtful, and the included polaroids were icing on the cake!! Very satisfied customers here! Highly recommend her!!"
