I honestly can't say enough good things about working with Elena. Elena and her assistant were very professional and accommodating not only to my wife and I, but to all our guests as well. I had a couple of friends who got married before I did, and they said no matter what, you should get a videographer. Well I am so happy we did, and couldn't be more thrilled with Elena's work. Her video was incredible and got everybody in my family crying. I loved how she included pieces of all of the readings and speeches, and she really did a great job of capturing the emotion of the day. The turnaround on the video was exceptionally fast, and the quality is amazing. She is a sweet person and I'm glad she was able to be with us on our wedding day and encapsulate everything before, during, and after our big moment.

Elena did a great job filming our wedding and creating and delivering a highlights video. When we first watched the video, we were instantly transported back to our Special Day. Elena captured the mood of the day, of the bride, the groom and the character of our family and guests very well and expressed it visually. The video was very smooth to watch. The first look in particular was done very well. Elena made for us versions of our video with different resolution including suitable for mobile devices. She made edits very promptly when we wanted change some parts.
Booking her was very easy online on her web site, the pricing structure was very clear and menu-like. She was always very responsive by email or Skype. We thought the Skype option was a nice touch as we lived far form where she was located and wanted to meet each other before the wedding day.

This is exactly what I wrote to Elena after seeing the final wedding film yesterday:
"You are truly amazing!!! Thank you so much for the beautiful film, and we love how you've incorporated the changes! We are soo soo happy that the film just perfectly captures our emotions and the entire day's events. And we're still amazed how you are able to highlight the right parts of someone's speech...in Vietnamese! I'm so excited to show the film to our family and friends who I know will just love it as much as we do. Thank you again for being so patient and accommodating on our wedding day. It was grueling and hectic, but somehow you seemed so calm and focused :) and we really appreciate Bob and Dan being on your team! Bob's beautiful camera work made the film even more special and memorable to us. We really can't say enough how happy we are and appreciative of all your hard work and Bob and Dan's assistance! May God continue to bless you, your family, and your work!!"

Elena is THAT good, and her beautifully artistic films really speak for themselves. She really does go up and beyond to create a film that I will cherish and re-watch over and over again. I highly recommend her to anyone interested in having a beautifully filmed, beautifully edited cinematic film!

Elena really poured out for our wedding, in her flexibility and willingness to meet our requests in a timely manner, in her continual focus and dedication to chase after the actions to capture every precious moment, and in her standards and quality of her work. Her pricing is reasonable and she has our interest in mind in helping us customize the most suitable videography package. Furthermore, she went above and beyond the agreed terms to capture and edit the important moments for us. Also very impressively, she understood the spirit of our event without much prior explanation and produced a video highlight that really captured the essence.

I don't usually write reviews and wedding videography wasn't high on my list of concerns, but working with Luxury Wedding Films and Elena has been a true joy. We decided last-minute that we needed a videographer. I was hoping for something passable, given the time restraint and limited budget, but Elena truly went above and beyond. She wowed us with her commitment to us, our crazy schedules (needing the video done within a week) and to pulling together an exceptional video, regardless of whether we were buying the most or least expensive packages. She was a professional and calming presence, even though we only met her that day. Elena and her team truly value their customer and are committed to documenting your precious memories in the way you need. She's not one of these vendors that is clearly focused only on getting paid (and disappears after), but is a true artist. She added really thoughtful extras as well. I'm so glad we managed to cross paths with her, and would hire her again in a heartbeat! Thank you for the beautiful video and work!

We wanted a first-rate videographer and Elena delivered. After doing A LOT of web "research" and speaking with several videographers, we hired Elena because she seemed most knowledgeable, professional, and approachable. She answered all of my questions, including tough technical ones -- I am very picky about photos and videos, having taken quite of few in my time. At the event, she showed up early with a ready smile that made our guests feel at ease. During the reception and banquet, she and her assistant moved through the crowds without being obtrusive and captured the spirit of the event beautifully. Within a week or so, she produced a draft video. Then within days she sent out a gorgeously wrapped package containing the finished movie, complete with a high-quality video case and festive ribbons! The movie capture all of those precious moments, which we can now relive over and over again. Although we did not ask for a Blue Ray version, she made one for us -- with a lovely notecard saying that Blue Ray discs will be the thing of the future and she did not want our DVD to go out of fashion :) She went above and beyond the terms of the contract. I highly recommend Elena to anyone planning a Wedding or Bar Mitzvah. Elena knows her stuff, produces superb movies, and is a pleasure to work with. A+

We cannot express how happy we are when we received our wedding video. It was definitely money well spent!! Overall, we loved working with her and really appreciate her efforts in making our wedding video timeless and so elegant. We had tears of joy after seeing the video. It was like we were watching a movie! We could not believe how splendid and elegant the video was. And this is coming from a Bride who's pretty picky with the finer details. (I'm not a bridezilla but I have high expectations of when I want something done right =))

Elena was very professional, punctual, and so friendly when she came to see us at our home down the South Shore. She wasn't obtrusive with her video equipment. She kept to the background while we were getting ready for the ceremony. At times, I forgot that she was actually there (that's how quiet and suble she was which was great because the video captured a lot of candid moments). Then, at the ceremony and reception, we weren't aware of where she and/or her assistant was, but we are TRULY AMAZED at how our wedding video came out. She captured EVERYTHING that w wanted and more. And her video style is exactly what we wanted...simply elegant, timeless and romantic!

We will recommend (and have already recommended to a friend) Elena's work to anyone who wants to have beautiful video to watch for a lifetime!!

Thank you Elena for your marvelous work!!!! We are a happy married couple. =)))))

My Husband is Greek and many of his family members were unable to travel from Greece to join our wedding. We purchased the short highlight video and the full 2 hour edited video. Both videos were amazing! Our family who was unable to attending the wedding felt like they were there by watching the short 7 minute highlight video. In 7 minutes every important part of the ceremony was captured; rings, crowns, walking around 3 times.....
I cried buckets when I watched the video's, it was like re-living my wedding again only Elena was able to capture angles and faces I was unable to see on my wedding day.

I will have these videos forever. I can't wait to show our children!

Best money spent on the wedding!

Elena was so great to work with and is such a nice person! We had told her that we wanted her to be discrete and she did such a great job that our guests didn't even know she was there! She is so organized and we are able to see the progress of our video on her webpage. She was also very easily accessible via Skype! We already received a little preview of coverage that she took at our wedding and it was beautiful! We can't wait to see our video! Thank you Elena for capturing moments that we missed! I know we will watch our video for years to come! We are so happy that we decided to go with a videographer for our wedding since the day flew by!
