    Excellent experience and I would recommend to anyone who wants a great video

    Five stars plus for Elephant Memories! The day I hired them to do the video for our wedding I've made the best decision. Clarissa and Karl are just wonderful and so easy to work with. I've met with Clarissa a few times before the wedding to discuss all the details and she wanted to make sure they know exactly what we want to make the best of it. She was always there to answer all my questions on the phone and also she gave me great ideas and advice which was so helpful for our big day. They captured every moment of our wedding and made a gorgeous video out of it that could not be any better than that. I'm so happy we decided to have the drone which made our yacht wedding so unique. We are 100% satisfied with the result and I honestly recommend them if you want the best memories of your event! Great job guys and thank you so much! I loved working with you and I would do it again

    Elephan-tastic Memories!

    We used Elephant Memories for our October wedding and they were amazing. Clarissa clearly loves what she does and made sure everything was perfect. Karl was super helpful and included some incredible drone shots from outside the cathedral. The photos they sent us were impeccable, we couldn’t have ask for anything else and I would highly recommend trusting Elephant Memories for your big day.

    The absolute best!

    We got married less than 2 weeks ago, and I can't stop thinking about how perfect our vendors were. Our 2 videographers, Haley and Dana, were a huge part of our big day. The final video will be delivered soon, but I just know that it's going to be everything we dreamed of. When you work with people that are genuinely there for you and try whole-heartedly to capture every special moment, you know the final product is going to be perfect. All of their videos are works of art, and I cannot wait to see what masterpiece they have created for us.

    I highly recommend Elephant Memories to anyone looking for a talented videographer that also doubles as someone you can laugh with on your wedding day. They were both simply the best.

    Daughter's Wedding

    We couldn't be more pleased with Elephant Memories. They captured the precious moments of our daughters wedding perfectly. They listened to our daughter and new son-in-law and learned who they really were. Their suggestions on how to capture their love and commitment to each other on video have become priceless memories for them now and in the future.

    It was a last-minute decision for us to hire a wedding videographer, but after seeing a trailer from a friends recent wedding with Elephant Memories, we knew we had to have them capture our special day. We were completely overwhelmed with the beauty of the final product. They captured the essence of our vision for our wedding day perfectly. Our wedding was 6 months ago and I watch my video at least once a week still and it delivers the same emotion it did when I received that first viewing. Since seeing our video, another friend of mine booked their wedding with Elephant Memories and the circle of love continues :)

    To all the couples out there who are planning their wedding budgets and looking for vendors my one piece of advice is: find room in the budget for a videographer. This type of memory to share of your special day cannot be replaced by photographs alone. Highly recommend.

    Clarissa and Karl did an excellent job for my wedding (here in California). Their professionalism showed in not only their services but also in the quality of their product. The photos, and videos were exceptional (especially the video shot via drone for our wedding video). Highly recommend using them for your big day or event.

    Our wedding experience with Elephant Memories was wonderful! When we were looking for a photographer, everybody's portfolio looked the same (all good), so we just wanted someone who would be comfortable to work with. Elephant Memories was just that. They got multiple angles of every shot, and gave us tons of photos, many the kind of quality you'd expect to see in high-priced advertising photography... like REALLY AMAZINGLY GOOD! They were easy to deal with, and not outrageously priced. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anybody looking for a wedding photographer.

    We had an amazing experience with everyone at Elephant Memories. We originally found them on Thumbtack and weren't sure what to expect.

    They provided excellent, fun, and professional service. We got the video and photo package and couldn't be happier. They are very organized which helped alleviate stress from our big day!

    We highly recommend Elephant Memories for your photo/video needs

    From the first phone meeting we were impressed with how detailed and professional Elephant Memories were. They were very accommodating in what our vision for our wedding was and how they could make that come to life. They took the time to get to know us and it showed on the day of the wedding. They showed up early and got to work right away, it was seen right away that they knew what they were doing and took the time for the small details. They were always there for all of the moments and were never in the way. When we got our video we were so impressed with the end product and are so proud to share it with everyone and anyone!

    I would spend money on the Elephant Memories team over and over again. I searched long and hard for a video style I loved and they did not fail to deliver. I offered very little direction and it was everything I could ever imagine. Our pictures are natural, candid, and the perfect complement to the video.

    Karl immediately made me feel comfortable and worked with me to create the perfect package for our wedding. We spoke over the phone, met in person, and emailed frequently before the wedding. At first I was very hands on, but quickly loosened up as other wedding tasks became priority. Our wedding day came and we had so much fun with the team! My husband is not someone who likes being on camera and he had no complaints - he enjoyed himself! The team was with us during some of our most intimate moments. Personality is EVERYTHING. Karl, Clarissa, and Steve are easy-going, professional, and know how to have a good time. Elephant Memories was the BEST wedding decision we made.

    Over and over, friends kept saying - you’ve got to have video. But we just couldn’t imagine it. Wouldn’t it be cheesy? Wouldn’t it be incredibly expensive? And intrusive? And yet, the more time and energy we poured into planning the ceremony, we knew we would need a better record than our memories. We are so, so delighted that we found Elephant Memories. Clarissa and Karl were really respectful of our entire day and worked collaboratively with our photographer, who we had already booked. The trailer and longer form documentary are perfect captures of our day and great captures to share with friends and family - both those who were there and those who weren’t. All our guests have raved about the finished product, and having a drone capture our parade, well - once in a lifetime! Book them while you can!

    What can I say! Amazing! We are so grateful that Elephant memories shot our wedding. They was able to capture every single special moment and did such a beautiful job! We wanted to keep our wedding video within a relatively modest budget, but still wanted not to compromise in any way. Very professional, punctual, excellent equipment, creative and easy to work with. Also was amazing that they could speak in spanish with my guests. Thank you so much!

    Clarissa and the entire team were so easy to work with and made our dream wedding a reality. Their photos capture a moment and the video captured the raw emotion of the day. We find ourselves watching it over a hundred times and remembering our special day. Great combo video/photo deal...

    Elephant Memories was so great to work with. Friendly, fun, and professional, they were careful to never be too much in the way, but gave great direction when needed. We are so happy we decided to go with the video and photography package. It saved us money and all the photos and videos were amazing. The whole team was great and we love that they were able to get photos and videos with the same romantic style. Clarissa made my fianceé feel at ease which is great since she doesn't always love cameras around. Also, capturing some of the most precious moments on video allowed me to experience the things I would've missed and never seen. I highly recommend them for photos and video!

    The absolute best and most creative filmmakers you'll find to shoot your wedding video or next project. Their camera team has the artistic eye and professional approach to making great memories. We were very impressed with what they did for us, from capturing great footage to their exceptional editing of the final video. Their low key approach and minimal footprint at our wedding was awesome and almost invisible, and they were able to give us exactly what we were hoping for! We can't recommend Clarissa and her team enough.  

    Thank you so much your for fantastic video for us! We are very proud of it and will watch it every anniversary.

    Clarissa is a truly exceptional videographer. The resulting video from her footage blew me out of the water. An artist of her caliber is extremely rare in the world of wedding videos, and the finished product speaks louder than words (which you can view along with her other work on her website).

    Not only was the video everything I wanted and more, Clarissa has an amazing knack of catching the most beautiful moments, while at the same time being completely unobtrusive. I never once noticed that she was filming during the ceremony. Also, she was able to suggest the ideal times to pull us away from the festivities to get any supplemental shots.

    I would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat.

    We hired Clarissa to do our wedding video, and couldn't be happier with the result. She delivered a video that we and all of our family adored, and will truly cherish forever. Not only was the end product amazing, but the process was even better than we could've ever hoped for. She has an incredible eye for detail, and was able to capture the day and all the important moments in a perfect way. She made sure all our guests felt comfortable while filming, was incredibly friendly with our family, friends, and all the kids at the party, and was also very patient with us. Even though as bride and groom our attention was split in a hundred different directions throughout the hectic day, she took advantage of the smallest windows of opportunity to get all the shots needed. This kind of talent is hard to come by.
