We specialize in emotional, vulnerable, and raw highlight films for couples who are crazy about each other. No two films are the same, since we are eager to get to know our clients and tell their love story. We are always striving to create films that break through the surface beauty of a wedding day to show the personalities and histories of each couple. Offering full day documentary capture of weddings as well as proposals and engagements, we'd love to tell your story!
If you’re wondering about us, and not just what we do, we’re a husband-wife pair who really love to work together. We’re a mix of sensitive and particular, quirky and focused, and adventurous and careful. We live in small-town Elmira, Ontario and will happily travel throughout Canada for the right project.
All of their packages include 2 cinematographers and 10+ hours of coverage. The most complete package (Package 3) includes a 4-6 minute cinematic wedding film, speeches & toasts film, ceremony & vows film and a complimentary engagement session.
Bonsai Creative combines storytellling and documentary styles of videography in each of their wedding films. They are available to shoot any segment of your wedding, including ceremony, pre-ceremony, reception and rehearsal dinner.

Passionate & Authentic & Wildly Talented!
100% Would recommend Meg & Jon! We’re a bit shy, and their ability to make the entire process so fun and relaxed - while secretly being insanely in tune with every detail is what we loved about working with them. They have such an authentic way of just wanting to get to know you! The way they organized all our raw moments to tell our story through our video is what makes it so cherished by us. We are IN LOVE with our video! Would HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend! Thank you both for such an awesome experience.Sent on 26/11/2019
Bonsai Creative's reply:Thank you Chelsey!! We loved getting to know your shy selves and help you get a bit comfortable in front of our cameras. We had such a lovely time getting to know you two and are so excited for your relationship together. Congratulations again!

Stunning Product by Wonderful People
Having a videographer was a decision we hadn’t fully committed to when we planed out wedding. However, I do not regret the decision at all!
Meg and Jon soothed every doubt about having a videographer for our wedding. The first time we chatted I knew right away that they were the ones to capture this special day. The two are the most kind hearted, funny and loveliest people! In addition to planning out a vision of what we wanted for our video, they were also there to give us advice and tips when planning the rest of the logistics with the wedding.
The day of the wedding, they were there promptly and eager to see us ultimately tie the knot! They ensured we ate, we were doing well and kept us on time. Meg truly was such a gift on the wedding day. You sometimes don’t realize how much time you will spend with your videographers and photographers on the wedding day, but you spend pretty much all day with them and I am so glad we got to spend the day with Meg and Jon!
In terms of the video, let me just say it’s 4 months later and I still cry every single time I watch the video. They captured our love story, the full day of the wedding, and all the fun in-between. From the music, to the style, to the shots, everything was absolutely perfect. I have the ability to re-watch the highlights of the day and always be reminded of the essence of our wedding.
I would highly recommend Bonsai Creative to anyone who is considering a videographer. These two exceeded all expectations and anyone would be so so lucky to work with them.Sent on 16/12/2019
Bonsai Creative's reply:Thank you so much Cristi! We loved getting to know you two and capturing your special celebration. You're amazing and we were honoured to have been chosen by you two. Congratulations and thank you!

Our Wedding MVP
Any 2020 couple will tell you that throwing a Covid wedding is far from easy. All sleep, dieting, budgets, basic hopes and dreams, are all out the window and you step into pure survival mode. For us anyways, that was our story. Until our meetings with Bonsai began. They felt like allies, cheering us on the achieve the impossible. Even as our wedding day descended into chaos, Jon jumped in to help set up, Meg rallied the wedding party to stay on schedule and single handedly brought my stress level from a 10 down to a 4.Sent on 21/12/2020
They captured our love so beautifully. Watching our video feels like a contagious energy. With whispers of my family and closest friends woven throughout. Prior to seeing this film, I had been hard on myself because I couldn't remember the specifics of our day and I thought because of that that I wasn't present, that maybe I wasn't smiling, that I didn't appear approachable and was somehow viewed as a grumpy bride. You know how your mind can get the best of you. Their film allowed me to relive the same emotions I felt that day. In fact, I think I enjoyed watching it even more, maybe it's because I know that that day was the first day of my forever with my best friend. It was incredible.

An amazing duo of crazy talented individuals!
We reached out to Jon and Meg after seeing their beautiful work online. We did our first FaceTime consultation and knew we wanted to have them film our special day. Jon and Meg really try to understand you as a couple, what you like, what you don't like, your love story and any quirks that you two might have to then translate it into film. As if we needed any more reassurance, when our engagement film arrived, we were IN LOVE with their work. They made us feel super comfortable during the engagement shoot and made two awkward people look pretty good on camera ;)Sent on 21/07/2019
On our wedding day, these two were complete troopers. They were everywhere, filming every single detail but never really "getting in the way" of whatever activities we were doing so they could capture candid moments. At the same time, they balanced it with some directions for us when it was time for just my husband and myself to do our shoot after the ceremony.
On top of them being just pure talent, Jon and Meg were also extremely helpful during the entire wedding planning process. For example, close to the wedding day, we found out our venue did not have any mics for outdoor ceremony so Jon and Meg came to the rescue and we were able to rent one thanks for them. Also, at the beginning of planning, we were still unsure what to do with regards to photography and they were happy to help us with finding some options as well.
All in all, these two are just crazy talented, will make anyone look good on camera, will be there if you need them and also they have two ADORABLE children (one of whom we had the pleasure of meeting during our engagement shoot
Bonsai Creative's reply:Man! Val, this is so sweet! We had such an incredible time getting to know you two as well and were so honoured that you chose us. Thanks for being such an amazing pair to work with and letting us in on your love story! Love you two and thank youuuuu! :)
