Steve and Steve

When Steve was a seven-year old Cub Scout, he and his dad entered a Pinewood Derby, which became the first of many future racing experiences they would enjoy together. A couple of years later that group of fathers and sons advanced to go-kart racing. The two Steve’s refurbished Dad’s childhood kart, equipped with the original Briggs & Stratton motor, and hit the home-made track that they built in a vacant neighborhood lot.

These early years formed a bond and mutual love for cars, camaraderie and collaboration. In 2004 Steve Sr. began to race Mazda RX7’s with Steve Jr. as his one-man pit crew. Chomping at the bit to get behind the wheel himself, Jr. passed the Bondurant racing course and obtained a competition license to join his dad on track.

After years of working in the graphic design and web development industry, Jr. was drawn to learn the real estate business which Sr. has been active and successful in for 34 years. While working together and assessing the marketing needs of their clients, both their entrepreneurial spirits were ignited. They recognized that the needs of their clients were not fully served with traditional marketing methods.

With new and innovative technology emerging in the field of aerial drone photography they saw the possibilities drone videography could have in fulfilling a client’s success in marketing their product. Whether it be a residential or commercial property, new build construction or existing building, Aerial Reflectors expertise and innovation is positioned to serve clients in many diverse modes of living and working. AR fulfills whatever your dreams imagine.

Steve and Melissa

In 2011, when Steve’s mom recognized his artistic talents and creative mind, she encouraged him to take a photoshop class. Little did she know that on the very first day he would meet and fall in love with his future wife and co-creator, Melissa. With the excuse of not having purchased his text book, he invited Melissa out for a cup of coffee. From the very first sip they shared their dreams, likes, dislikes, mutual passions for art, music and advanced technology. As “out of the box thinkers” they instantly saw reflected in one another a kindred spirit.

Melissa Bodeman found her passion when she began her studies while in film school at Scottsdale Community College. Melissa
Her expertise in editing and her eye for cinematography is the perfect blend of creativity and skill; resulting in the delivery of a clear story and impact-full message.
Melissa believes that the clients vision is of the utmost importance.

Together they imagine new ways in which they will support business and entrepreneurs in successfully accomplishing their goals. AR Cinematography is your partner in this contemporary and exciting new world of drone photography marketing.


Steve and Paulette

Pizza night is a monthly tradition in the Bodeman house hold. On one of these occasions, as the four of them sat around the table, Paulette listened to ideas being tossed around. As she took in what was being said her input was, “this sounds like the seeds of a burgeoning business.”
