SMP Welcomes... Our Advertisers!
July 10, 2010

We like to think we know a few things about weddings...that is why every month we are delighted to bring our readers the best of the best.  The crème de la crème of weddings.  The who's who of wedding vendors...okay, you get it!   We carefully comb through hundreds of vendors and hand pick each of our advertisers.  We totally take a great deal of pride in our selections.  We couldn't be more excited to introduce you to a few of our newbies! 

We're kicking things of by showing a little love for one of our all time favorite cinematographers, Elysium. They were the masters behind the SMP Wedding Film and we could. not. be. more blown away by the results. It comes as no surprise that Elysium is recognized as one of the leading studios in the world. They are constantly reinventing what it means to have a wedding filmed. There are so many elements that distingish an Elysium film that you just have to watch and see what all the fuss is about. Start here with the demo reel and watch on to see several real wedding films.

Note that since these are streaming from the internet, it's best to press play, then pause, and then play again once the films completely load.

This reel demonstrates our signature style of event coverage. It's full of beautiful moments captured over the last three years. We are so delighted to work with amazing couples every weekend and have to pinch ourselves when we realize that we are able to do this for a living!

From Elysium...

It's a well known fact that if a couple chooses not to have their wedding documented with video/film, it's usually their #1 regret.  Of course  you are not going to want to watch it every day, but your wedding film tells more of the story than just your photos will - especially the incorporation of the audio.  (who wouldn't want to see and hear their vows again?).  There's a distinct difference between a poorly produced, techie based, documentary and a cinematic film.  Our goal at Elysium is to document each event accurately and bring accross the couple's personality, love for each other, as well as the feel for the event in a short film.  What most couples tell us is that they can't believe how it makes them feel when watching it, how much they love seeing a the little moments that they missed on their "surreal" wedding day,  and how their friends and family actually ENJOY watching it (and want to see it again and again!)
