Thanks for stopping by! I’m Ben Palmer, owner of Eastbourne Films.
The name Eastbourne Films comes from the street I grew up on when I shot my first videos as a kid. I started shooting weddings when I was still a film student in college and instantly fell in love with the process. I saw the potential to craft a story about each wedding that was unique, compelling, and heartfelt, and that’s the foundation of my business today.
I take the approach that while I get the best footage possible, I stay out of the way to make sure that everything unfolds naturally (which is usually better than anything I could have planned). I want to get those treasured moments of your close friends chanting your name as you pull off that crazy dance move, the look in your parents’ eyes when they see you in your dress for the first time, the tearful story in your maid of honor’s speech, and the look of wonder and awe in you and your partner’s eyes during the first look. I’ll step in to get those cinematic shots that will make every single one of your Instagram followers hit the like button, but the best part of my job is capturing the moments that happen organically.
The amazing thing about a wedding film is that it not only gives the chance to relive the best day of your life, but also experience all the emotions that come with it. Your wedding will fly by (just ask any married couple!), but a wedding film allows you to cherish those memories and relive the most special moments.
Outside of shooting weddings, I'm super into photography, sailing, and traveling the world. Feel free to follow my adventures on my Instagram (@_benpalm)!
I’d love to meet with you and hear about your upcoming wedding! For pricing, please downloading our pricing sheet PDF or visit our website (eastbourne.wedding/packages).

We seriously hit the JACKPOT with Ben. With our wedding being a four day extravaganza, the days leading up to the ceremony and the wedding day itself felt like a dream - and Ben captured it all so beautifully. I had very specific ideas, shots, music, and locations of what I wanted for the wedding video (i.e. I was not an easy client) and Ben nailed it. In addition to this work, Ben also works for a photo and video stock company -- so he's a pro, and it's amazing what he can do behind a camera. On top of that, with Ben, there was no "wedding tax" -- I promise you that for the level of quality and skill Ben has, you will not find a more reasonable videographer.Sent on 03/19/2018
But more importantly, Ben is such a good human -- truly a sweet soul. My husband and I have huge families, a ton of close family friends and they absolutely loved him - which after being in close quarters for days on end before the wedding, says a lot! He blended in to our party easily, so that capturing all of those fleeting, special moments felt natural and comfortable. I can't stress how important this is, because you spend more time with your videographer and photographer than you realize, so having easygoing, generous and fun people you enjoy having around is just as important as choosing the right talent.
We feel like we truly lucked out with Ben, and we couldn't be happier with our wedding video!
Eastbourne Films's reply:We are floored by your generous comments, Priyanka! Thank you for choosing us to capture the best day of your life.

I recently worked with Ben and David for a very upbeat, busy, and FUN wedding celebration. As the officiant, I've worked with tons of videographers, and Ben and David's professionalism, friendly nature, and their willingness to collaborate and listen to/share ideas was top notch. When multiple vendors come together to help a couple, it can sometimes get difficult to each do his/her job without interfering with the other professionals. However, working with Eastbourne Media was so easy. They had a positive rapport with the couple and their wedding party, which helped them capture even more amazing moments. If you were on the fence about them even after seeing their amazing video testimonials, rest assured that their work ethic, professionalism, and attention to detail will not go unnoticed!
