Where are you based?

Upward Films is located in Olympia, Washington. We primarlily create wedding videos in the Pacific Northwest but we travel anywhere that has a great couple, a lot of love, and an awesome location helps! Did I mention...I love to travel!

What kind of wedding days do you cover?

We cover anything from private micro weddings, to elopements, to full luxury weddings with guest counts of 300. We have created wedding films on city roof tops, rustic barns, at the end of a trail on the beach, on a mountaintop, in another country, and even inside of the Death Star. OK, maybe not the Death Star....but I had to get something Star Wars related in there somehow.

Do you work well with photographers?

Yes! Yes! Yes! We love photographers and hopefully they love us too (some have told us they do). We know that they are there to capture the day for you as well. I always communicate with them in advance. I make sure we work together so that both of us capture the day for you. In fact, here are a few reviews from photographers: I can't say enough positive things about my experience with Ryan from Upward Films. His vision is amazing, he's an absolute joy to work with. He knows how to capture moments without being intrusive, allowing for a genuine feel to the whole day. I appreciated his thoughtfulness, always double checking that people were camera ready before he entered a room. When I watched his final product for the day, I cried. It was perfect. He clearly knows what he's doing and goes about his work with a constant smile. Do yourself a favor, hire him!! Stephanie Michaelis Photographer - Seattle, WA Ryan is extremely friendly & professional! I worked with him back in March and from the beginning, it was a breeze. He was kind, thoughtful, and has a passion for his craft. We worked fabulously together and the end product he produced for the bride & groom we worked with was amazing! Rachel Howerton Photographer - Kirkland, WA Not only is Ryan's work beautiful and well done, but he is very kind, positive and easy going. He makes the bride and groom feel comfortable and relaxed so they can enjoy their big day while he captures it all so beautifully. As a wedding photographer, I had the opportunity to work with him recently and it was a very positive experience. Any photographers that have a couple asking for a videographer recommendation, Ryan is your guy! He's great to work with, very considerate and lots of fun!

What does it cost to for a wedding video?

Your investment starts at $2000. Our most popular local package is $2400. Our most popular destination package is $3500. There is a reason I use the word "investment". Your wedding video is one of the few vendor items from your wedding day that go up in value over time. As much as I love cake, and as beautiful as the flowers are....they don't last forever. Hearing your loved ones give you that heart touching toast, watching friends and family burn up the dance floor with sick moves, and being able to experience the entire day over and over again is truly priceless.
