Vanilla Film Made Our Wedding into a Movie - Simply the Best!

Lev and Nina of Vanilla Film are simply amazing videographers, exceeded our wildest expectations, and were some of the most accommodating and kindest people we could have for our wedding.

Their professionalism and commitment went above and beyond our expectations, capturing our most treasured moments and beautifully combining them into films of cinema-level quality. We sincerely cannot provide a higher recommendation for their level of cinematography, artistic vision, and genuine compassion in helping us through our wedding day.

For context, we did not have much initial direction when we started our search for a wedding videographer. However, we knew our wedding was going to be incredibly hectic and wanted to ensure we had a solid video team so we could actually appreciate our wedding after the big event. We searched through countless websites and sample videos to little avail, but knew we found exactly what we were looking for when we found Vanilla Film.

Lev and Nina immediately jumped on a video call with us to introduce themselves, learn more about us as a couple, and provide some direction on how they would personalize their videography to match our personalities and expectations. Their kind-heartedness and creativity shined through their personalities, and we could instantly tell they were going to be fantastic to work with.

They made everything so easy for us, accommodating the schedule and locations of our multi-day wedding, and staying in consistent contact with us leading up to our big day(s). We knew we could rely on them through every step of our wedding planning process and they produced a spectacular video we will treasure forever. We honestly felt like movie stars and you can see their commitment to quality film-making through every shot of our video.

We cannot speak more highly of Lev and Nina and their cinematography. They were professional and genuine through every step of our wedding and will forever be a part of our fondest wedding memories. We know they will only continue to make some of the best wedding cinematography on the market and we will genuinely miss our interactions with them.

One of the best and most important decisions of our day!

Working with Nina and Lev was truly an amazing experience from start to finish. From our first intro call to our wedding day, they were so kind, creative and easy to be around. They completely understood our vision and honestly were so nice to have around on the actual wedding day - they were both such a kind, calm presence to be around with all the nerves in addition to doing an incredible job guiding us to get the shots we needed!

As for the actual wedding films, I truly can't say enough good things. Both our 5 minute shorter film and our movie-length full film are absolutely incredible! They came out better than we could have imagined. Watching them is truly the second best thing to reliving the wedding in person. They fully captured the joy, excitement, fun and all the love on film and turned it into such a beautiful final product. If you can, I would absolutely recommend getting the full length film as well as the shorter one. Being able to watch over and over again and feel the joy of the day is such a special thing.

Nina and Lev are true artists as well as lovely people. Working with them was one of the best and most important decisions we made for our big day and we couldn't be happier!

5 stars for the best husband+wife wedding videographer team!!

Using Vanilla Film as our wedding cinematographers was one of the best wedding decisions that we made! Lev + Nina are an incredible husband and wife team, a phenomenal addition to our wedding. Their talent shines through all their content, from their highlight films, full length documentary of our wedding day, and even their IG posts. I’ve rewatched our films probably 50 times, complete with tears and laughter. Their style is unique, fun, and whimsical, exactly how we enjoyed our wedding day. If you’re looking for a video that encapsulates how intimate your wedding day is, while also capturing how lively and electric your wedding night is - Vanilla Film is the way to go!

Lev + Nina were so great to work with, their love for each other and their craft shine through their projects, and they are able to capture all the love, intimacy, and fun within the wedding day. They are really the complete package.

Lev, Nina, I can’t thank you enough for the joy you have brought my husband and I with your films. These memories will last forever, thanks so much.
