Meet the Speakers

Lindsey Conklin

Lindsey makes up one half of the husband & wife filmmaking duo Le Rêve Films. Named as one of the top wedding videographers in the world by Harper’s Bazaar, their work has been featured by People, Martha Stewart, and iHeart Radio. They’ve made waves in the luxury wedding market, working for athletes and celebrities alongside the top photographers, planners, and designers in the industry. As a two-time WeddingPro Educator, Lindsey is a regular speaker at The Knot and WeddingWire events and is passionate about helping others elevate themselves and grow their business.

Johnny Apple

In just a few short years, Johnny Apple rose to the top of the Dallas luxury wedding market. The combination of his solid work and bright personality make him a go-to for high-end planners, and he regularly commands $10,000 for his films. Before perfecting the art of videography, he was a leader in the audio visual industry, with top commercial clients throughout Dallas. His success story is proof that you don’t have to be an “industry influencer” or have a massive social media following to break into the world of platinum weddings.

Johnny and Lindsey will team up and speak on how they are quietly killing the high-end wedding market.
