From Summer and Craig – Paris elopement
I know, I know… looking for a videographer to capture one of the most important days of your life is stressful. It especially was for me as an American planning an elopement from overseas and not knowing anyone in Paris. I have advice for you. Just stop looking. You found the perfect person. Chris is creative, he’s talented, he’s professional, and he’s a total sweetheart. He delivered the most incredible video to my now husband and myself and we had to watch it multiple times back to back because it was so good. I cannot wait to share it with our friends and family. So do yourself a favor – contact Chris, get booked, enjoy the wedding.
“Well what can we say…. from the first off myself and Neil always wanted to capture our wedding day on film, a chance to share it with family and friends that couldn’t join us there in France and to have a memory which we could relive with our children as they grow older. Chris was recommended to us via our lovely wedding planner and once we had seen just a glimmer of his work we instantly fell in love and it was a no brainer, he was to be booked! After sharing a video call with Chris prior to the wedding I instantly felt comfortable and confident in what Chris was to capture on the day, Chris makes that extra effort in ensuring what is captured is very much personalised to you and not just ‘another wedding video’ On the wedding day, nerves and excitement hit, Chris arrived as we were beginning to get ready, the weather was grim and as you can imagine as the bride I was worried for what our outside wedding was to turn out like…. Chris immediately put me at ease and turned the events of the weather into a perfect setting for the introductory video (as he does) and he did not disappoint. Chris just fitted in to the wedding party, he was another guest (ha) he laughed, joked, took selfies and made ourselves and our guests completely at ease enabling him to capture all those special moments without a glimpse of us knowing! We can not credit Chris enough for his amazing work and professionalism, his films are truly unique, capturing the moments that time stood still to us and reflecting them in what we can only describe as magnificent. We continue to watch our film over and over alongside friends, family, colleagues and more (mum’s in the school yard even passing comments) and each and everyone are amazed and describe his work as “a romantic fairy-tale ” “the most romantic film I’ve ever seen” “I cried with emotion” the list goes on…. if you have always dreamed of capturing your big day we cannot recommend Chris enough, and you will certainly not be disappointed!”
I eloped in Paris, and Chris was recommended by my photographer for video services. My wife and I conducted a lot of research on top of our photographer’s recommendation, and could not find work we liked better than that of Chris… take a look at his blog and you’ll see what I mean. Not only did our personal video turn out to be amazing, but Chris was a genuine pleasure to be around on our wedding day. He 100% added to our wedding experience and we highly recommend him.
There aren’t enough words to express my gratitude towards Chris and Zen Film Works. I had dreamed of what my wedding video would look like and Chris by far exceeded my expectations. He has the perfect personality to film a couple who’s not necessarily a natural behind the camera. He eased our nerves, encouraged lots of kissing and lovey-dovey moments, and made us feel as though we were just hanging out, dancing in the streets of Paris. Isn’t this every girls dream?! He made sure our wedding video was flawless, capturing the most perfect moments from the start of our day to the end of our day, just as I had hoped. Chris gave us the sweetest gift of remebering the love that was there on most the perfect day of our lives and we will cherish our video forever. He also gets serious bonus points for creating two instagram clips for me 😊 Best Decision Ever.
Chris was so much fun to work with and he elevated our wedding day to help make it super special. He’s a true creative professional while being super flexible and approachable.
“I wanted to let you know I still, almost a year later, watch our highlights video every week, and never get tired of reliving the emotion and beauty you captured. I also really enjoy watching all the film you post on Vimeo! Lots of talent there!
Thanks again for giving us the best to remember our day!
All the best for the 2016 wedding season!”
“Jason and I wanted to thank you for being so amazing on our wedding day and the eve of our day also.
We both noticed how dedicated you are to your work and we were very impressed with how efficiently you got your shots. Jason and I just watched our film together and we absolutely loved it…we didn’t want it to finish. So heart touching!”
I know Natasha has emailed you…but I just wanted to email you as well to say thank you for an absolutely amazing video! We both absolutely loved it! And it brought a tear to our eye when we watched it…and to a number of friends of ours as well. We loved how you included our vows and the shots taken and the music was perfect.
Thank you also for being so great on the day and the day before, Elisa as well. You guys were so friendly and easy to get along with…which we both really appreciated.
If our Paris wedding convinces anyone else we know to do the same we know who to recommend!
“Hi Chris. Just viewed our highlights …… What can we say. AWESOME. We are so pleased with it. It brought tears to our eyes. We had to watch it twice. You guys did an amazing job capturing our special day and we are so pleased we have a record of our wedding day. We can’t wait to share it with our family and friends. For all brides and grooms debating whether to have their special day filmed, go for it – you will regret it if you don’t”
“Thank you so much for filming our wedding, you did a fabulous job on the day. Extremely professional and also a good laugh. As you know Spencer is camera shy but you made him relaxed and enjoy the filming. You were both a pleasure to work with and we can’t thank you enough. We watched it at least 7 times now and absolutely love it!!! You have really captured and told the day in such a beautiful way. You are both truly talented and creative individuals, producing excellent work which we will treasure for the rest of our lives!”
“Wow! Thank you both so much for the all your hard work and attention detail, you’ve managed to capture us and our day perfectly, it brought (happy) tears and laughter to all that have seen it.
It was so fun to have you around sharing such intimate and special moments.
We cannot recommend you guys highly enough to anyone thinking of using Zen in future.
Thanks again for such a magical memory of our day for us, our families and friends. Big love x”
“We just wanted to say a very big thank you for doing such a great job on the 17th – you were so professional and unobtrusive and great to work with (Chris – who knew you were so multitalented – comedian/DJ/hairdresser etc etc as well as videographer!). We couldn’t have been happier with your approach on the day and can’t wait to see the finished product!!! Best wishes, Alex and Katia xx”
“You guys of ZEN FILMS WORKS made the most beautiful weddingmovie we’ve ever seen…incredible romantic and making us, being the parents, so very, very proud of a gourgeous daughter and even so astonishing pac of friends and family. I guess we’ve seen the movie now so many times that we’ve come to know it by heart. Thank you so very much for the special editing, the views, the light, camera movements etc. Thanks for the memory!”
What can we say, we totally love our wedding video, truly reflective of us and our day. We loved how you both totally engrossed yourselves in us, spent the weekend getting to know the real us. Again a massive thank you to you both. See you again in 15 years!!!! Xx”
