Elle & Be are two lovebirds inspired by the little moments in our own journey together. We love capturing your little moments, on your biggest day, so that you may never lose the feelings experienced on the most wonderful beginning to your own journey together.

Blayre began his journey in filmmaking through a constant desire to use a camera ever since the first time he held one. He went on to study broadcast journalism in Calgary and digital color correction in Los Angeles. Soon after he was a full-time editor in Montreal at one of the cities top production studios. Blayre's work has allowed him to travel the world creating films for a vast number of important clientele from Shanghai, Tokyo, New York to Rome. Working with some of the biggest names (Harry Rosen, Coldwell Banker and Island Def Jam) he's developed an important skillset allowing him to handle any situation with a video camera.

Weddings have always been one of Laura's favourite topics. From tiny details on the wedding day such as place cards, to the wedding dress, to the venue, every touch is important. After studying fashion design and marketing in Montreal, Blayre and Laura moved to Toronto where she discovered a real passion for interior design.

Much like interior design, a wedding is all about details. With Blayre's talent of cinematography and Laura's keen design eye the duo merged their interests, and aimed to created the perfect wedding experience.

Laura recognizes the importance of getting to know a couple when asked to be part of such an intimate day. Together Laura and Blayre enjoy meeting with the couple before the wedding day to get to know one-another. Learning about the love story, meeting friends and family is all part of what creates the foundation of a great end product.

We created the Elle & Be studio in response to the modern trends and artistry which have been developing in the wedding and event industry over the past decade. We house a passionate, talented selection of Toronto's finest event filmmakers and editors and work with the most respected names in the wedding and event industry.

The work we do in Toronto weddings and events reflects the qualities we would want in a video production team if the roles were reversed. We understand the significance these events hold for both the hosts and the guests, and as such we've mastered our technique over the past decade so that we are able to anticipate every sitaution and provide creative solutions for every moment.

We utilize industry leading equipment throughout our arsenal of pre to post production equipment. All footage is captured in High Definition with the leading camera technologies from Canon, audio recorded in BluRay quality with broadcast standard shotgun and lavalier microphones, and editing is performed in the most capable of editing suites including Adobe, Apple and BlackMagic. Your event footage is permanently backed-up in our archives so you'll never have to worry about losing the moments captured.

We could not have picked a better videographer for our wedding. Not only did Elle & Be do an absolutely incredible job capturing our love and our wedding, but they also became friends to us. We opted to do an engagement video, in addition to our wedding video and every moment we spent filming was a blast! Blayre and Laura did a wonderful job in making us feel comfortable, confident and at ease. I would strongly recommend Elle & Be for any event or occasion. There is nothing like watching these videos and reliving these incredible life experiences we had together. We are beyond grateful for all their hard work and know that we will work with them again in the future.

I can't believe how many moments that I missed that he ended up capturing, it was pure joy seeing these moments for the first time. His professionalism, easy going personality and endearing soul made him so easy to work with and a joy to be around. We felt like he was apart of our family! You will not be disappointed if you choose him. He is worth every penny and more. You only get this day once, so be sure you get the best and that best is Elle & Be films!

We contacted Blayre on such short notice few weeks before our wedding. And he's been so accommodating . Together with Laura, they're such a great team. They also shot our engagement video and it was so much fun. It was actually our first time in front of a camera, but Blayre made us feel so at ease. The video came out so great, all of our guests loved it when we played it during the reception.

The most AMAZING team you could have on your wedding day! I honestly didn't even know they were there. But the video created is something magical. Everyone that sees it (and I've shown it to strangers on the street) says it's like a Hollywood movie preview. Elle and Be are fantastic. FAN. wait for it. Tastic.

Hire them.

Worth every stinkin' penny.

By far, one of the best wedding vendors we got to work with! Blayre is a talented, professional, fun, and inspiring individual. He is ridiculously awesome at what he does!!! He managed to capture us and our love story like as if he knew us for years! I am so glad I found Laura and Blayre... Our wedding wouldn't have been the same without them! Guests who didn't attend the wedding told me that they felt like they were there the whole night after watching the same day edit! I can't wait to see the full edit!

Thank you!! Xoxo

If there was an Academy Award for wedding cinematography, Elle & Be would win it – hands down. They are amazing. From the onset we never considered video, as we thought it was would be something incredibly long and boring – something we might watch when we were in our golden years in a nursing home. Elle & Be, proved me wrong. They produced a same-day-edit that knocked everyone’s socks off – the next day I was swamped with compliments on how beautiful the video was and how it felt like they were actually there - it was that good. They were extremely fun to work with, super professional, top notch in quality and have an incredible sense of humor. They bring an unrivaled level of skill, quality and artistry to the table, and it is without hesitation we would recommend Blayre and team to anyone who is even mentions the word wedding. Thanks! You guys are awesome!

15 people shared our link (and counting), 403 views (in 2 days) and I was bombarded with messages today asking who did it... We saw a same day edit (from another videographer) today in the morning of a couple we know and it was 5 min of the bride and groom getting ready...(I gave up after the first minute, my husband told me later that's what the video was about)... Our guests were coming to us and saying how they've never seen anything like that (same day edit showing most of what happened throughout the entire day, not just in the morning)...You're absolutely incredible, easy to work with (half of the time I was forgetting I was being video-graphed), and worth every single penny!!
Thank you so so much again! We're all absolutely in awe from your beautiful and elegant work!

Blayre is unquestionable the best investment you can make in planning your wedding. The memories only last so long, the photos only do so much. Blayre's wedding films not only rekindle memories and emotions they also burst with an artistic flare unlike any other. Blayre puts his upmost attention into every single frame of a film he creates. If you're looking for a cinematographer look no further. My wife and I were overjoyed by our film and we cannot thank him enough for his incredible hard work and talent.

A few years back, I saw my friends' wedding video done by Blayre - I was blown away. Right then and there I decided that when I get married one day, I want him as my videographer! This past September I got married, and Blayre drove from Toronto to Ottawa to film our day.

I am overwhelmed with joy at Blayre's creativity, professionalism, and hard work. He captured our day better than anyone else could have. Our video makes us laugh and cry each time we watch it. It even brings tears to my co-workers who weren't even at the wedding.

I would recommend him to anyone, and I do! His work is exceptional and captures the moments and feelings of your big day.

I can't say enough about him and his work. My husband and I are thrilled and are so happy we chose him for our wedding day. THANK YOU a million times.

The team at Elle & Be Wedding and Lifestyle Cinematography created memories that will last my husband and I a lifetime. They were kind, flexible and the surprises you typically get from vendors where no where to be seen. Rather, Patrick showed up early and was able to film more scenes that we didn't expect, ensure he captured the entire day.

There is no question in my mind that I will be using Elle & Be Wedding and Lifestyle Cinematography in the future again and recommending them to all of my friends, families and peers.

Blayre and Laura captured the mood of our day perfectly. When we went back and watched our highlight video, it honestly felt like we were right back on our wedding day. This will be a wonderful memory to have for years down the road when we want to remember what an amazing day it was. They were extremely professional, and yet you felt like you had long time friends hanging around as the day went on. I couldn't be happier with how our video turned out - and with how the entire process went (from the day I contacted them to see if they were free to take on our wedding - all the way until after the video was given to us). I would definitely recommend any of Blayre and Laura's services to anyone! You will not regret it!!!

Sharing our day with Elle&Be was an incredible experience. From our first meeting my husband and I felt like we truly clicked. The team was humble, honest, funny and incredibly talented at what they do. When it came to our multi-day wedding Elle&Be truly fit in as though they were part of the family.

Finding the right cinematographer who could capture our love and excitement was important to us and they did just that. Their professionalism and ability to capture every key moment was uncanny and we were even more in love when we saw our next day edit.

We could not be more happy with our experience with Elle & Be. Blayre Ellestad and Laura Collins exuded professionalism from the beginning. Their warm, positive and laid back personalities made them a perfect addition to our wedding. We have seen our wedding highlight film thus far, and I am not exaggerating to say that we were stunned; it was even more beautiful than we could have imagined. They managed to pack so much in to the film, from memorable moments, priceless emotions, and fun details of the day. The way that our pastor's message was narrated the film was great, and commented on by many of our friends and family. Blayre seamlessly incorporated shots from our own [amateur] proposal video, which worked so well.

If you choose Elle & Be, you will be working with true artists who are a pleasure to be around. You will have a gorgeous memento from your big day that will likely make you cry :)

Blayre Ellestad of Elle&Be is just great. He's great to work with, and just really captured the key moments from our wedding.
My husband's co-worker had previously hired Blayre in 2008 for her wedding in Italy and once we saw the video, we were determined to have him as our videographer for our wedding. We were even willing to work our wedding date around his schedule!

Blayre is truly talented and gifted. I believe he worked with only one small camara and a tripod, he really didn't bring much material at all. Which at first made us nervous - we thought to ourselves, 'How can he capture a wedding with that tiny camera?!' But somehow, magically, he was able to catch the essence of the day on camera.

I can say, hands down, that having Blayre video our wedding was the best choice we made that day (besides marrying each other!). We watch our video over and over again, being able to relive the day is just magical. Additionally, because this was a destination type wedding for my husband's family (he's from New York, the wedding was in California), much of his family was not able to make it. But since Blayre has been able to immortalize the day, we are able to show the video to others - everyone says it's the best wedding video they've ever seen (and we agree!)

We have so far only seen the preview video that DElle & Be worked on and it is amazing. We've watched it, only 15 times or so within the first few minutes of receiving it.
Possibly more, we lost count.
Our parents, it seems, have decided they love the video even more than they love us.
"it provides the key message, the raison d'etre for being married....and gives an insight as to who Shiri and Ian are together, not poised or fake smiles, but genuine love and laughter and shyness while walking thru the village, it is really a nice peak" (from Ian's mom)
"We can't tell you how many times we watched the video.
I cry each time.

We have so far only seen the preview video that DElle & Be worked on and it is amazing. We've watched it, only 15 times or so within the first few minutes of receiving it.
Possibly more, we lost count.
Our parents, it seems, have decided they love the video even more than they love us.
"it provides the key message, the raison d'etre for being married....and gives an insight as to who Shiri and Ian are together, not poised or fake smiles, but genuine love and laughter and shyness while walking thru the village, it is really a nice peak" (from Ian's mom)
"We can't tell you how many times we watched the video.
I cry each time.
It is amazingggggg.
You both look soooooo beautiful. Pretty woman, handsome man.
Really perfect. Everything about it." (Shiri's mom).

Elle & Be Wedding and Lifestyle Cinematography is by far one of the most amazing companies my husband and I had a chance to work with for our wedding. Not only is their staff professional and personable, they make every minute fun and exciting! We had never been filmed prior to our wedding and ELLE & BE made our experience flawless.
We understand they are a business, however, the staff go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at ease, like we had all been friends for years.
We cannot thank them enough for capturing our love exactly how we feel it. The final product continues to bring tears of joy to my eyes and we feel proud to share our wedding video with friends and family!
WORTH EVERY PENNY WE PROMISE YOU!

MANY THANKS ELLE & BE

It was a pleasure working with Blayre and his partner for our wedding, on an important and busy day like our wedding day it was reassuring to have someone professional and easy going. The final product was amazing and we have had so many compliments, not to mention I have recommended them to many of our friends.

Blayre was unbelievable from start to finish. He came and met up with our party a few days prior to the wedding and got to know us and the various characters within our group.

So many of our friends and family commented on how he slotted into the group as an extended family member. We feel that this was what made our wedding video so enjoyable, as everyone including ourselves were so at ease in Blayre's company.

The actual day of the wedding was full of so many laughs through Blayre's creativity and the video blew us away. We cannot speak highly enough of the whole process in terms of initial correspondence, to meetings, the video and Blayre himself. Hopefully there will be a reunion!!

A wedding is supposed to be a fun & happy event, but let`s be honest, it is such a stressful day! To all those future brides and grooms who want to make sure they have a videographer who can deliver, Elle & Be Wedding and Lifestyle Cinematography did exactly that.

Their service was exceptional, very professional but at the same time, Blayre makes you feel like a friend, which I truly found important on our wedding day. As for our video, it is AMAZING! I never expected it to be so nice.

I would not hesitate in hiring him again and highly recommend him to anyone who is considering him for their wedding.

Once again, Blayre, thank you so much for your hard work!!

They managed to capture every magical moment from the big day and made an exceptional video that we will cherish always! Great team to work with as they made us feel comfortable and knew what they were doing. I would highly recommend Elle and Be cinematography.

Blayre's creativity combined with his exceptional knowledge of videography is simpy outstanding. He is a true artist and is such an incredible talent...it shows in every single frame of his work. Blayre is delightful, playful, yet professional, and brings out the best in everyone for his productions. We absolutely loved having him in our company while shooting the wedding video in Tuscany. I'd hire him again in a second, and he's absolutely worth adding to any wedding budget. I love my wedding photos...just not as much as my wedding video. You won't be disappointed!

Thanks Blayre!

Karen and I had been scouring all over the internet for a filmmaker who we hoped could represent who we are as individuals, as well as a couple.

We first came across the Elle & Be Wedding films on the Vimeo webpage and it instantly had us glued to the screen. We were confident that this was what we wanted. We contacted Blayre and he got back to us within minutes (disclaimer: I'm sure he does get busy at certain times, but he was super quick at getting back to us!). His passion was clearly shown by the level of his excitement when we met with him.

Our wedding wasn't very big. We kept everything fairly minimal. We didn't spend lots of money on catering, venue, or flowers. We only had close friends, family, a few relatives, a photographer and Blayre.

It was an honour and a privilege to have Elle & Be take part in one of the most important day of our lives. We put a lot of trust into Blayre, and we couldn't be happier with our end results. A phenomenal film that we can pass down to family and friends, and generations to come. :)

Where to begin!

Allow me start off by saying I was expecting an eccentric and uncooperative Spielberg-type of videographer. But, Blayre and Co. were the complete opposite!

East to work with, easy to get in touch with, and the end product (my wedding video) is second to none. This was a huge part of the wedding for me, and I couldn't be happier. The video is perfect, and everyone I show it to is blown away.

The only reason I gave four stars for 'Flexibility' is because bookings filled up really fast for August, but that's to be expected. (Seriously, do yourself a favor and book ahead of everyone else.)

You get what you pay for; an obvious professional operation (not some hipster with a MacBook).

Thanks for making this part of our wedding planning pain-free.

You were a star!
