I’m usually not one to write a review as I’m always pressed for time, but after watching our wedding video yesterday, I just had to endorse Braven’s work so that other soon-to-be-married couples could share in the pure joy that comes from the magical combination of Braven’s skill, creativity, professionalism and attention to detail. First off, working with Braven was about as easy as it gets - very straightforward, smooth sailing, no gimmicky Wedding BS (which most planning couples are used to by the time they engage a videographer) – such a refreshing experience in the chaos that is wedding planning. Prior to booking Braven, we had watched a bunch of his spotlight films and it was obvious that he has a natural talent for capturing the couple’s unique style – our own video could not have proved this point any better. Day-of, Braven was so perfect to work with. That said, I was not a controlling bride, I just respect the experts and let them do their thing. Now, I don’t know film editing terminology, but Braven’s choice of camera angles, music, frame speeds, clip selections, and whatever else is in his bag of tricks – it all came together perfectly in a beautiful masterpiece that will forever be treasured :) HIGHLY Recommend going with Braven!!

I contemplated whether or not to hire a videographer. I am so incredibly happy that I did! Words cannot express how thankful I am that Braven's team was able to capture our special day. It was all such a blur and now I can actually sit back and watch the night unfold. Braven was so flexible and easy to work with and the videos are absolutely amazing!
Before getting married on 7/30/16, I watched quite a few wedding videos. I fell in love with Braven's style of videography after watching just one video on his website. The lighting was so clear the video scenes were never jerky or rushed. From the beginning, Braven was quick to communicate. After meeting in person, it was clear that he loves his job. He has a genuineness in personality and passion for filming and editing, which was important to me because I wanted a videographer who wasn't jaded in this fast-paced wedding industry.
On the day of the wedding, Braven came on time and worked flawlessly with my photographer. I really liked how he got so many shots of my friends and family, as well as those romantic moments with my husband to be!
Bottom Line: I've edited a few videos myself, so I can truly appreciate all the work Braven put into making our wedding video so beautiful. It made me laugh and it made me cry. He incorporated all of our favorite songs and I am just so happy with the outcome. :) Braven is a great person to work with and he is worth your investment for your wedding. Thank you Braven for our wedding video and we recommend Braven wholeheartedly!
I watched probably 50 wedding videos before selecting Braven as my videographer. The quality of his work is far better than any others I've seen. He spent 10 hours filming every detail of our wedding day and the finished product is everything we hoped it would be. Our friends rave about how great his work is. Braven is highly recommended!
Braven was absolutely wonderful! He is so easy to communicate with and is quick to respond to questions. The day of the wedding he was punctual and worked great with all of my other vendors and the wedding party.The final video we received was incredible, it captured our day from start to finish. I am so happy I hired him to capture our big day,
I will watch this video for the rest of my life and will be able to relive my magical day. He is well worth his fee!!! My favorite thing about my video is that it was 18 minutes long, it captured each and every detail of my day. I have never seen wedding videos like bravens before and I am so thankful I found him.
Braven and team were absolutely amazing!!! We looked at over 15 videographers and Braven's style, professionalism, and price range were by far the best we came across! Our video is everything we have ever dreamed of!! We truly got to re-live the day through it and it is absolutely price-less! We couldn't have asked for a better capture of our day!!
If wedding wire gave out 10 stars that's exactly what my wife and I would have give Braven Carver Films. We met Braven at our venue while he was getting ready to shoot video for another couple. Needless to say we ended up going with him and it was one of the smartest moves we made for our wedding. Braven was everything we could of hoped for in a videographer. He was easy to work with, punctual, and the most amazing part was that you don't even notice he's there! When my wife and I were deciding if we should have video, I told her we would definitely regret it if we didn't. She was very hesitate, but after receiving our video she agreed with me 100%. Thanks Braven according to her I'm never right. The aerial shots, the music, and just how every perfect moment was captured was amazing. I posted the video on my Instagram and people who I've never met were commenting that they were in tears. They said the video made them wish they were invited! If you are looking for a videographer just stop. Go to his blog and your search will be over. Thank you again Braven for everything. The video will be shown to our future children and grand kids. You are true artist at your craft. Jeni and I wish you and your family nothing but the best. Happy holidays.
Braven was absolutely amazing. Our wedding video is better than I could have imagined it would be. I wasn't going to hire a videographer, but about a month out we changed our minds. Luckily, Braven was available. He capture EVERY detail of our wedding day - more details than I thought there even were. I hoarded our wedding video for about 2 weeks before I shared it with our family because every time I went to share it, I just watched it again. He was super professional and so much fun to work with. Braven even walked through the back alleys with us so we could get some really awesome shots. I love our video and I'm so glad we decided to go with Braven.
We were overwhelmed when trying to find a videographer because we weren't sure what to look for as we shopped. We liked the video examples Braven had on his website so we decided to go with him, which now we know was absolutely the right choice! Braven was very comfortable at the wedding with what he was doing, and I could tell it wasn't his first rodeo. He was great to instruct us on what to do and when... not to mention all the fantastic candid clips. So that was the wedding day... he seemed to be great, but how would we really know until we saw his work?! Well, once we received our wedding video all put together, we were ecstatic!! The way he placed the music we wanted and strategically put in all the clips was perfect. I'm so glad we decided to go with the longer video (about 16 min) because our special day is now gone... after countless hours of planning, preparing, and executing... all gone. The pictures are also wonderful to have, but the video is extraordinary! To have everything put to music, and something we can look back on over and over, is truly a treasure (I've already watched it about 100 times since we received it a few weeks ago). Many people who've seen it say they can't believe how awesome it is and wish they had something like that of their wedding! I would hands down recommend Braven! He's an amazing artist! You won't be disappointed!
I love my wedding video! You will want to watch your video over and over again. Braven is a true artist, he really knows what he is doing. He is very professional and worked well with the photographers. Overall made the day less stressful. The quality of Braven Carter films are amazing and very well priced. Definitely would hire him all over again.
Braven and his associate were great! They were on time and really went above and beyond our expectations. Our wedding video turned out amazing! Everyone loves it and I will highly recommend Braven to anyone who is getting married and wants a videographer.
Braven was very easy to work with. Quick to respond and gave honest advice when we discussed the different packages he offered. His team even braved the unexpected pouring rain on our wedding day with a smile on their face!
I had to convince my groom that a videographer was worth it when we were planning our wedding, but after getting our film back from Braven, my husband absolutely agrees that this was a necessity! Braven and his assistant were great to work with on the wedding day, getting every shot they needed without needing any direction or ever getting in the way of festivities. Professionalism at its finest. And our video is beyond amazing! The quality of work is flawless and our memories of our wedding are captured perfectly. Watching it felt like being there again. If you're considering a videographer, hire Braven Carver. You will be so happy you did!
I originally debated if I was even going to hire a videographer for my wedding because I thought the pictures would be enough and I didn’t need to spend the money to have a video too. Everyone told me that I would regret not having one so I finally gave in and booked Braven to film my wedding, and that was the best decision I could have made! The video turned out absolutely perfect and I can’t even believe I was questioning whether or not to hire a videographer in the first place. I love being able to watch the video and relive our big day. Braven did an amazing job capturing the memories and all of the guests in attendance, I couldn’t be happier. In addition to being extremely talented, Braven is very personable and does a great job making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. You won’t regret booking with him :)
We were indecisive about booking a videographer, but in the end it was such a great decision thanks to Braven! Luckily he still had availability a month out and was able to fit us in his schedule. He was extremely responsive throughout the entire process and had a very quick turnaround time. He was a joy to work with on the day of the wedding and was able to capture some really amazing moments. We absolutely love our video and it is something we will always love to watch again and again! You will not regret booking Braven!
We are so thankful we choose to have Braven capture our special day. Our wedding video is AMAZING! We planned our wedding from 150 miles away and did not have the chance to meet Braven in person until our actual wedding day. Through Skype and email communication, Braven answered all of our questions and made sure we felt at ease with our selections for our film. He is professional, timely, and delivered an excellent film. We loved how cinematic it was and have watched it dozens of times with family/friends since receiving it. Braven worked wonderfully with our photographer and blended in so well that we didn't even realize we were being filmed most of the time. We are so glad we choose Braven and that we have a video to watch for years to come that truly captures our wedding. I love how he captured who we are, the details that made our day unique, and the energy and love of our community. He exceeded our expectations and we have nothing but positive things to say about him as a person and his work. THANK YOU!!!
Braven was the absolute best videographer for our wedding!! He was recommended to us by our venue's coordinator and we could not be more happy we took the recommendation! Braven was incredibly nice, professional and a wonderful addition to the day. He captured every moment so beautifully but was completely unobtrusive throughout the day. Our wedding video is absolutely gorgeous. He really got all the important people, moments, energy and emotions and turned them into a perfect memory for us and our families! I would absolutely recommend him to anyone!
My daughter and I had a lot of different emotions regarding hiring a videographer. Our great friends referred us to Braven. What a wonderful decision that was! We immediately felt a sincere connection with Braven. he listened to what we didn't like in videographers and what we wanted. He and his team were both very professional and very talented! Very soon after the wedding we received the video from Braven. The family got together to watch it and it was better then we could have even imagined! It brought back all of those magical moments, laughter, joyful tears and even gave us each Goosebumps! Braven created a wonderful memory for all of us! I would highly recommend Braven to all of my close friends and family . Enjoy your wedding...the day goes by so fast its great to have a beautiful video! I have three more weddings to go and he will be invited to video tape each one!
Thank you again Braven...a very happy mother of the bride and bride!
Braven Carver and his videography are phenomenal! From our first conversation to the final film product, Braven was kind, creative, passionate, reliable, and a joy to work with! Braven captured our wedding day and our love story impeccably!
Working with Braven was a delight! He made us feel completely comfortable in front of the camera. His energy was just the right amount of celebratory fun and calm professionalism. Braven worked well with our photographer, following her lead, but taking initiative to get the shots he needed and wanted. While meeting with Braven prior to our wedding, he made us feel heard and valued. He understood our vision for our wedding day and captured the spirit of our celebration.
Not only was working Braven a blast, but his work speaks for itself- AMAZING. We LOVE the quality, creativity, and emotion of our wedding film! Artistically, the movement and variation in shots and audio quality make his films surpass the rest! One of the things we loved the most about Braven’s work is the way he incorporates audio clips of voices- vows, letters, and toasts. Every time we watch our wedding film I am brought to tears by the sound of our voices and our loved ones’ voices on our wedding day. It was also special to be able to share Braven’s film with our family and friends who were unable to attend our wedding. He captured every moment perfectly so that our out-of-town guests could relive our wedding day for themselves. Priceless! We are obsessed with our wedding film and look forward to viewing it for years to come!
Words cannot fully express our gratitude for Braven and his talent, creativity, and hard effort producing our wedding film! We will enjoy his work for years and years to come! A priceless treasure! Braven truly went above and beyond what we could have ever imagined! Exceeded our wildest expectations! Thank you SO much, Braven!
Hiring a videographer wasn't something I had initially considered when I began planning my wedding. However, after viewing a few wedding films (on various wedding blogs), videography slowly became something I had to have. I found Braven through some mutual friends, and after checking out his blog and all the great work that he does, we went ahead and booked him. To say that I am beyond thrilled with our wedding film is an understatement! I know that this is something we will cherish for the rest of our lives, and will one day show our grandchildren. Videography provides something extra that photography doesn't, and I highly recommend Braven to anyone planning their wedding.
Braven was referred to us by one of my good friends, whose wedding I was in over 3 years ago. I loved her video; it was so much fun to watch her wedding again. When my family, husband, and I were considering a videographer for our wedding, I knew he would do an outstanding job. There really wasn't a competition. When we met him, we knew he would mesh well with our other vendors and with us! To say we love our film, is a huge understatement. Braven was able to let us relive our magical day and we are forever grateful! I would definitely recommend him to anyone getting married and will refer him to others!
Braven and his team did an amazing job as our videography team at our wedding! We had a rough time with wedding planning, including the loss/sale of our venue 8 weeks before our wedding. Braven's team was flexible and accomodating, and took changes in stride. The final result was better than we could have imagined! Our Same Day Edit came out perfect- our wedding guests LOVED it and it was a great way to relive the day (which of course flew by!) before the reception was over. Our short and long films we received after the wedding were great too- it captured the character and style of our wedding (and us), providing us with a great way to look back on our wedding day memories. We are so thankful to Braven and his team for their hard work and beautiful product!
Braven was incredible! We couldn't have asked for a better videographer! He was flexible, timely, polite, professional, and went above and beyond. The questions is how do he do all of this? Well, he was involved early. He met with us often and emailed us to keep everyone in the loop during the whole process. He made sure to accomadate us at every turn. We emailed him a lot about all of our expectations, and he was open to everything. He was more then willing to do anything we asked. We wanted him to have all the freedom he needed because we knew he would deliver expert results based on his website. All the videos we watched were so professionally done and just blew us away. Choosing him was easy. During the wedding, Braven discreetly inserted himself into all the most important parts of the day. From the two of us reading our letters to each other in the groomsmen and bridesmaid suites, to capturing the Bride's face as her eyes met Groom's, to the Groom seeing the Bride for the first time. He caught every moment spectacularly. The final highlight video was everything we were hoping for, our favorite memories of the most memorable day of our lives. Braven made sure we were taken care of and always asked us if could do anything more. He was excited and energetic during the whole day and never quit. He was there to the very end and gladly stayed over to capture every lasting moment. Our wedding would only be memories if we didn't have Braven there to capture everything. Thank you Braven for everything!
Braven was a breath of fresh air. He was with us all day and worked very well with the rest of our team including the wedding coordinator and photographer. He was punctual, profession and pleasant! His work is phenomenal and I still cry each time I watch our wedding video (which has a cool music video vibe as opposed to cheesy wedding videos I've seen before). Cutting edge and unique videography makes your video something truly special to share with friends and family!
When my husband and I were planning our wedding, we were originally a bit indecisive about hiring a videographer. After experiencing my wedding day and having Braven as our videographer, I can absolutely say that hiring Braven was one of the best decisions we made. Braven was referred to us through our wedding venue. We researched several options and were most pleased with Braven. As soon as we met him, we could see that he was very easy going, which was a must for my husband and I. At the same time, he is professional, responsive and extremely helpful. The day of our wedding, we shot our couple photos / video at the Mission in San Juan Capistrano. Braven was a huge help. He knew every cool spot to shoot both our photos and video, which was great for time management and maximizing our photo shoot locations. We were also very impressed that although he had several cameras set up during our wedding, and was videoing every moment, you hardly noticed that he was there. He created a relaxed environment for us where we were able to just be in the moment and enjoy ourselves. For those of you who have not yet been married, your wedding day is truly one of the most amazing days of your life. The emotions and feelings you experience are unlike any other, and are in ways indescribable. When we first watched our wedding video, it immediately took me back to my wedding day and all of the many incredible emotions I felt. I was crying, laughing, reminiscing, and was overwhelmed with the deepest happiness that I could relive my wedding day for the rest of my life, thanks to Braven’s amazing work. He is creative, passionate and extremely talented. He is also so thoughtful in his process. When watching our video it is very apparent that he really captured who we are and edited our video based on our personalities. Our experience with Braven went seamlessly and he captured every essence of our wedding day to perfection. Thank you Braven…we couldn’t be happier with our videos.
