The Wedding Film Package includes a Cinematic Wedding Film, soon to be your favourite 5 minute film of all time. This highlights the best moments of the day and weaves in the sounds and voices of you and your loved ones along with a musical score that syncs to your vibe.This is her specialty and it takes a lot of TLC to make it juuuuust right. Don’t worry, this package includes a 1 minute recap edit that sent a week after. It’s perfect for reliving the day and sharing with friends and family.

Add-on options include a documentary film because sometimes you just…need to see more! The Documentary Film features the wedding edited in chronologically order, at around ±20 minutes and outlines exactly how the day went along with further highlights of the ceremony and speeches.

For if you haven’t had enough of the ±30 minute documentary film, or you just want to see the whole ceremony, and what was said during the speeches. This can also be perfect for 5-10 years in the future to add to a romcom marathon, wearing your wedding dress and tux of course. What she's saying is it ages well.

    INCREDIBLE Videographer & lovely to work with!

    Elora not only captured STUNNING shots of our wedding venue, but she created our dream video out of all our favourite moments! She is such a sweet person that went absolutely above and beyond for us on our day. To not have her as a videographer would have been such a sad thing. If you are getting married in the Kootenay’s we HIGHLY suggest she be your girl!

    Easily one of the best decisions of our wedding! Elora was an absolute joy to work with & our wedding film far exceeded our expectations.

    Elora was an absolute dream to work with. What started out as - what seemed like - a tough decision, easily became one of our best decisions of the wedding. Not only did she beautifully and perfectly capture our day, but her contagious personality was a true highlight throughout the wedding weekend.

    From our very first email interaction with Elora, we knew we had made the right choice. Her passion, knowledge and overall positivity extended beyond the role of videographer. She went out of her way to get to know Dan and I, suggested officiants in the area when we were struggling to find one and excitedly jumped in when we asked if she'd photograph our Friday welcome reception.

    Both the teaser & final video far exceeded our expectations! I've probably watched our wedding video a hundred times and each time am blown away at all the love, creativity and humor that Elora pumped into our short film. She beautifully told the story of Dan and I, made me both laugh and cry and captured the very best moments of our big day. We are beyond thankful that we get to relive this day over and over through her incredible work.

    We'd highly recommend Elora and will continue to look for any opportunity to work with her (or just hang out with her in general, haha!) in the future. Vow renewals 8.10.2029? :) Thank you for everything, Elora!

    Love, Erin & Dan

    Highly Recommend Choosing Elora!

    Elora was so easy to work with from day one, until after the wedding when we received our sneak peak, and full film. Elora truly cares about you, and about the film and it really shows. A truly genuine soul. Elora was so refreshing to work with amongst our search for vendors! Hire her 100%.

    Better than I could have ever imagined!!!

    With Elora, from initial conversations to final product, you know that you will be completely taken care of. Her approach is completely client centred and has boundless creativity in getting the perfect shot. While she was shooting our engagement photos, she knew exactly how to guide us to capture timeless, candid and not over-posed photos. When she sent us our album, I ugly cried big time.. such beautiful keepsakes that will be treasured forever. ELORA WE LOVE YOU!!! Can't wait to have you capture our wedding day video!

    Captured our day beautifully!

    Everyone told us the wedding day goes by too quickly which is very true and I’m soooo glad we had Elora with us so we can relive our day. She was an absolute pleasure to work with and somehow managed to fade into the background and still capture every moment at the same time. Both my husband and I cried when we saw the ‘sneak peak’ of our footage and I’m sure it is going to be something we watch over and over again. Thanks so much Elora!!!

    Extra special care on your Extra special Day!

    Elora has this magical way of becoming part of your big day, effortlessly. With the excitement of getting ready, first looks all the way to the first dance, she takes the extra time and care to make sure everyone feels at ease. You can tell she also takes pride in curating moments for photos and video that show the extra special giggles, looks and pauses between friends and family that can be missed in the buzz of the day. It was those memories of the in-between moments that we will cherish forever! I cannot recommend anyone more to give you a wedding day you will never forget!

    Highly recommend Elora

    Our wedding was held in the tropical paradise of Sayulita, Mexico. Elora flew down to shoot our wedding, and words cannot express how wonderful working with her was. She fit right in with our family and made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera. I'm quite shy when it comes to photography but Elora made me feel so at ease! While we were shooting, I barely even noticed her, other than a few hoots and hollers while she ran around snapping shots. Her upbeat, positive attitude and bright smile was such a treat. She made our day so special and the photos turned out absolutely spectacular. She is wonderful, and I would definitely recommend her to be part of your special day.

    The best videographer/photographer experience we could ask for!

    Our plan was to elope all along, knowing that it was top priority to find someone who could capture our day for not only sharing with friends and family, but to deliver professional grade photos and video as a lifelong keepsake. The more we tore apart social media platforms, the more we came back to Elora - and she did not disappoint! Simply, it was an amazing experience dealing with Elora! She was enthusiastic and completely in tune with our expectations. She provided our must haves, while still grabbing the extra shots above and beyond to fulfill capturing the emotion on our wedding day. Elora delivered a stunning package of pictures and video in a timely manner, with excellent correspondence along the way too!
    It is also worth mentioning how exceptional Elora was for us - Covid restrictions due to Provincial measures meant we ended up cancelling our venue 27 days prior to our wedding day. Our all inclusive Elopement Package was gone, leaving us with nothing but Elora and a Commissioner. Elora did not hesitate to help us out. She immediately went on scouting missions to provide us pictures of different Covid friendly locations, and give us an idea of how to solve our venue issue since we were a province away. Her local connections gave us leads on hair & makeup, flowers, catering, and ultimately our new private venue which ended up fitting us perfectly. Our day was saved, we owe it to Elora and can't thank her enough!

    Most ESSENTIAL vendor I worked with

    While I was planning my wedding I was extremely hesitant about videography- I had seen so many mediocre videos that looked more like slideshows. My partner was more keen about videography so I decided if we are going to do videography I would need to find someone worth my money. I scoured the internet and social media and once I saw Elora’s content I knew I had found the person I wanted to work with. Elora’s product is far and beyond the best in the business. She is extremely passionate about the medium she works with and the product she produced for our wedding day completely changed my mind about the place of videography in the day itself. Not only did she play an influential role in making the day go smoothly, but the videos she created tell the story of our day so perfectly that I am able to share/relive that day for the years to come. The videos she made for us bring tears to my eyes every time I watch them. If was to redo my wedding day and had to only pick one vendor to work with it would be Elora May creative- hands down, without a doubt.

    Impeccable, Detailed, Chilling Work

    Elora's videography work is captivating, touching, and so perfectly and elegantly put together! She was an absolute pleasure to work with and has such a keen eye for moments. She is a videographer that is entirely "at home" behind her video lens, who makes you feel comfortable as she captures you, and intuitively knows how much guidance to offer you. Our jaws (literally) dropped watching the video she put together for our wedding. We are still in awe of the extreme detail, musical touches, and features she added to make it one of our most cherished keepsakes. Any person (or couple) that has the honour and privilege of working with Elora will not be disappointed. Thank you, Elora, for your absolutely beautiful work. - Hayley & Andre

Meet the Team

Elora  Braden
Elora Braden
Owner & Cinematographer

Born and raised in Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, I grew up listening to the stories told by my father Pat Braden and I have always loved the art of storytelling.

My career has taken me to many places as a storyteller, journalist, radio producer, marketer, photographer and videographer. I'm passionate about exploring the outdoors and going on many adventures from my home base of Golden, BC.

Picking up a camera started out as a hobby, but the more I've worked with couples, the more I've realized my passion for telling love stories! I'm a hopeless romantic at heart, and I know what I would want captured at my wedding, so I do everything I can to find those subtle moments in the day that are oh so powerful.

Going on a journey with each couple to get to know them and build that relationship is so important for me. I love to experience each wedding as someone who's invested in these two people, not only their past and present but their future too.

So, I may be just as teary eyed as your guests when the vows are said, but I think that gets those magic moments captured!

Let's make some magic happen!
