Our story

Davina and Grace became quick friends during their college years at Virginia Commonwealth University - Go Rams! 10 years later, having been each others maid and matron of honors, and lots of life together, Love per Second was born in the winter of 2017 over a conversation about starting a business together, in the living room of Grace's mother in law's home. 5 years later, here we are, not only thriving as a business, but even more as friends and business partners! With Davina's gift of storytelling, years of experience as a videographer, photographer, editor and love for the arts, Grace's years of experience as a videographer, and natural gift with communication, our gifts combined makes us the unstoppable force we are today! 

The rest is history! 



Over the years, the LPS team has collaborated with amazing photographers, videographers and wedding professionals in the DMV area; artists we've grown to love and admire, with the best personalities, amazing talent and skill! With so many weddings worked together, it only made sense to establish them as part of our team and promote their own businesses as an effort to support one another in the work we do. So it's official. These amazing people are finally announced as part of the LPS family. We know you will love them too!"

Christian Rodas

Christian discovered a passion in shooting video in 2020. Having been a civil engineer for 12 years, Christian was born a creative thinker and decided to use his natural gift to pursue his dreams and has never looked back. This guy is a natural with the camera, on top of his eye for visual storytelling. Within a year of pursuing videography on the side, he went full-time in his videography career. The chemistry between Christian, Grace and Davina was instant as the passion for the craft, the skill and the personalities fit together, perfectly. And so LPS also never went back to just Davina + Grace. With Christian, our team has grown!


The skills and experience developed from my project management background and being a guest of many weddings and events is what sparked my interest in the world of coordination. I realized my passion and ability while coordinating my first wedding and that was it for me - I loved it. Through maintaining timelines and keeping multiple moving parts in sync, I'm able to ensure that no detail is overlooked so that your vision is brought to life!

Beyond the logistics, I understand the emotional significance of weddings and events. My empathy and communication play a crucial role in connecting with you and understanding your needs and desires. By building a strong relationship, each wedding and event I take on will reflect your unique personalities and love story!

When not working, I enjoy spending time with his wife and son. On warm summer days, you can catch them at the pool or playing pickleball!
