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.

Blayre and his team at Elle + Be exceeded ALL our expectations!!! We cannot stop watching our wedding highlight video..! First off, their personality on the day of the wedding made everything that much more relaxed, fun, and calm. We didn't even notice them take so much footage because everything was so effortless and natural. His style is out of this world..different, extremely delicate and tasteful. Everyone who's seen our video tells us they've never seen anything like it before! He caught all the right moments and made it into a story. Our video was also ready almost immediately after the wedding!! No need to wait weeks on end and this adds to Blayre's professionalism. Even when we through last minute curveballs at him, he never said no and was always there to help out... We cannot thank you all enough!! Extremely happy and we look forward to staying in touch and working with you again!! Max & Jasmin.

How do I say this - hiring Elle & Be is the BEST decision we made for our wedding (after we chose eachother's hands in marriage of course).
Not only is the quality of their work outstanding, beyond anything I have every seen, they really went above and beyond for our wedding in Paris. They are playful and fun, creative with so many ideas.

Another very important vendor we hired ended up putting a bit of a damper on the day which was a bit stressful, but Elle and Be went above and beyond to keep the energy up, suggesting different shots and scenes in order to make sure we had the most beautiful and special video.

On what can be a bit of a whirlwind day they really kept it focused and fun.

OK and I haven't even spoken about the actual video. We've only received our highlights video for now (full length to follow shortly) but I would pay the money that I paid JUST for the highlights video. It is stunning.

Also - I gave Elle & Be some pretty ridiculous references of what I wanted to capture (think Great Gatsby, Cinematic Chanel Perfume Ads, Other multi-million $ budget references) and they somehow were able to capture it all while still stay true to their style.

Everyone at our wedding commented on how great they were, not just in the way they work, but in their attitude and energy. You might not really think about how important that is until you have a vendor that is a bit the opposite, trust me it is VERY important and you will REALLY appreciate it.

The wedding highlights film (alone) has captured the day in a way photos never could. I will cherish our wedding film FOREVER.

We feel so blessed to have been able to work with Elle & Be on our wedding day.

In our opinion there is no film team better than Elle & Be. Since the day we met them after our initial inquiry we knew that they were the perfect people to hire. It was the best decision we made...Ever since they released our wedding highlight reel all we've heard is how incredible it is and how it's "the best wedding film" our friends have ever seen. Obviously we're bias, but we completely agree with them.

Blayre & Laura couldn't be nicer people to work with. They make the process simple and take time to get to know you. Like really get to know you - not just the generic, please fill out this sheet type of thing - they immerse themselves in your planning and pretty much become guests at your wedding... who just so happen to be filming it. Blayre & Laura make you comfortable from beginning to end, and are perfectionists when it comes to creating a final product.

I encourage anyone who reads this to not hesitate and book them immediately. They are artists - in the true sense of the word - who love love and capture your day(s) perfectly. I honestly can't thank them enough because the video is something we'll cherish (and watch a billion times) for the rest of our lives. And I feel like we came away with two new friends.

Thanks to Elle & Be! You captured us perfectly and we can't thank you enough for that.

We are very grateful to have worked with Blayre and Laura. Their easy going and playful personalities made it fun and effortless to work with them. Being pretty picky individuals with particular taste and expectations, we were blown away by the quality of our videos. Blayre and Laura went above and beyond to capture every critical moment on our special day. The level of creativity is like no other and the overall vision captured our wedding day perfectly. Anyone who has watched our videos was mesmerized and in awe. We would highly recommend Elle & Be for your special occasion.

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.

5 stars in every aspect! Blayre was more than accommodating and went out of his way to ensure that our dream wedding in Italy was portrayed in the most beautiful way possible! 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.

We can't wait to see the rest of the footage of our day. It was a pleasure having you there! All the best,

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.
