The focus of Elle & Be lies in the moments you will be experiencing, together with your family and friends, on one of the happiest days of your life. The vibe of each film is a reflection of your personality, a way to look back at such a joyous, fleeting exchange and remember what it felt like to be you on that day. There's just no better way than videography, to capture the energy of your wedding day. Though you may feel like you're going through the same motions, and taking the same cues, as millions have done so before you, just remember how uniquely different, and select you guys are. Remember your energy has a signature all of its own, and remember that your story is yours alone. No one else has experienced it the way you have. And for that reason alone, the team at Elle & Be are sensational about their mission to document these moments properly, with artistic expression and emotional undertones to match the real you.

How they work
Their philosophy is to leave the smallest footprint possible, allowing for natural moments to be captured by their videographers. They all know how awkward it feels to be on camera, so they've committed to honoring the purity of the moments and converting them into timeless memories with an authenticity that will be relived and cherished forever. It's an honor to have the opportunity to encapsulate such a pure celebration of joy and unity.
We're excited to meet you and hear all about your story. How did you two find each other? You couldn't possibly share too many details as they are, quite literally, the foundational elements which comprise of your relationship. And to do your relationship justice, with a video to match the couple, they need to know as much as they can! They're not interested in cutting together random images throughout the day into a simple montage with a beat, but rather to identify energy, and storyline, through editing which encapsulates the real you. You are the bride. You are the groom. This is your story, and it deserves the limelight. You deserve to remember it.

Good Quality but Unprofessional

We thought long and hard about how to phrase our review because we are truly shocked by the lack of reviews similar to ours. We were happy with our final footage but we can’t get over how difficult it was to get a hold of Blayre and how awfully unprofessional it was to be promised deadlines and never have them met.
We were told that we would get our highlights video within a few weeks of our wedding but we ended up getting it about 4-5 months later. We were then told to follow up with him at the beginning of 2018 to get a better idea of when the rest of the footage would be complete. We got in touch in mid-January and were told everything would be ready in a “few weeks”. Well, each time a “few weeks” would pass, we would give him an extra week as a buffer period and then follow up with him via text message to which we would VERY rarely get a response. Whenever he would reply, he would NEVER acknowledge his failure to respond to our previous text messages and would NEVER apologize for replying late. Long story short, we finally got all of our footage around our 1 year anniversary (7 MONTHS after we initially inquired about when it would be completed).
If we were told that the highlights would be completed within 6 months and the rest of the footage by 1 year then we would have waited patiently. But, we were told much shorter deadlines and as a newly married couple, we were really looking forward to re-living our wedding day. He is severely lacking communication and professionalism skills and we would hate other, future couples to hire him and not be aware of this beforehand.

Photography and videography was super important for my husband and I, so we wanted the best of the best! I work in the bridal industry and I knew Elle & Be have a great reputation. We were expecting greatness but we were completely blown away! We felt like movie stars after we watched our video! It had us in tears and we have gotten amazing feedback! They were amazing to work with too, I felt at ease and they are very go with the flow while being totally professional. We are SO happy!!!

Blayre has such an artful eye and we are so happy with the way he captured our wedding. The video he put together told a story and felt like a short film, which is exactly what we wanted. He was great to work with on the day, and his turn around time after the wedding was super quick.
Elle & Be Films's reply:
Thank you! Your wedding was spectacular. From our first meeting with you guys we were hooked and knew it was going to be an incredible experience collaborating together. It was such a pleasure to be a part of your celebration. Wishing you all the best going forward!

We LOVE Elle & Be. We had our wedding in July of this year at The Estates of Sunnybrook. Laura and Blayre were absolute breaths of fresh air, made us laugh (a lot!) smile and just feel really great about the day and experience. I have nothing but the best to say about these two and the work that they do. We received our wedding video and, as a perfectionist, I couldn't be happier. I look forward to working with them again on other projects and highly recommend Elle & Be to future newlyweds!

Make sure that you actually get along with your videographer and photographer. They are in the most intimate moments of one of the most precious days to you and your family. I would 100% choose a video, it is so special to see how people interact and its rare you can get all the people you love in one room. Blayre is amazing and it was one of my favourite parts of my wedding. They captured our day exactly how i remember it, a magical whirlwind!
