Cinematography was something I had thought about but we certainly didn’t have the budget for it. About 7 months before my wedding I started to research it, considering every other vendor had already had been selected and I had some …

I have to say that hiring Chris was truly one of the best things that we did! We did not know what to expect, and honestly, the video was not a priority in the long laundry list of “to dos”. After much encouragement from our friends, we decided to move forward with a video of the wedding and ultimately with Chris. From the beginning, Chris just made it so easy – his recommendations and suggestions were spot on! He also took it upon himself to go up to the wedding site before the ceremony and capture some wonderful footage that was spectacular and offered us some great additions to the video. On the wedding day, Chris was not only “unobtrusive”, but when it started to pour down rain right before the ceremony, he was actually one of the calming forces that told us to “hang tight, the weather will change – its Colorado after all!” – and it did!!! In the end, the video far exceeded our expectations, and it helped capture priceless moments that we would not have otherwise seen or remembered. Heck, if it wasn’t for Chris’s video, we wouldn’t have had any idea what was played as we walked down the aisle! The final video was beautifully edited, very tasteful and something we will treasure always. Thank you Chris and Pure Cinematography for a great product and for making it fun – we’ll refer you 1000 times over!!

Pure Cinematography did an excellent job of capturing our entire wedding procession on video. They created DVDs for us that included a sequential index of all of the individual parts of the ceremony as well as only the wedding highlights, etc. and took great care and pride in producing a permanent, high quality digital memory of our events!
Chris was wonderful to work with, he is professional, patient and creative. In addition to his outstanding videography, he created a touching slideshow for our reception (including choreographing some background songs to the pictures and home movies we provided to him) that was truly a memorable delight. You really can’t go wrong with Chris!

We were married on May 31, 2008 and Chris was our videographer. Chris was amazing and we are so glad that we chose Pure Cinematography. Chris went above and beyond for us in everything that he did. He attended the wedding rehearsal as well as the wedding ceremony and reception. Chris arrived on our wedding day at noon to get some “getting ready” footage and stayed until the very end of the reception (midnight)!! He was there to capture EVERY moment of our incredible day. He was very professional and had some really creative ideas for our video!! We are so incredibly happy with the final product!! It is so cool to be able to sit down and watch the video and relive our special day over and over again!! We can’t thank Chris enough for all of his hard work!! We would highly recommend him to our family and friends!!

We were on the fence with the whole wedding video thing, torn between thinking it was going to end up as some cheesy DVD we’d never want to watch, and knowing that it could someday be an invaluable way to remember not only our wedding, but our family and friends, as well. Chris was recommended to us- we hired him and are so happy we did.
Not only did the video capture the events of the day, but it captured the ‘feel’ of the day. Jeff and I wanted to have a fantastic party with a wedding thrown in for fun- that’s just what we did, and that’s just what the video imparts. The footage of the ceremony is perfect and the reception is fabulous- all the people we care about most, all in one space having a ball, as were we. Some of the day’s events were a blur- we couldn’t necessarily remember the specifics, so having the DVD capture the antics and especially the toasts, not only the words, but the sentiment, is so great. Chris condensed 6-7 hours of footage from our wedding day, the end result is a true reflection- personal and fun.

We just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did on our wedding video. As you know – we did this as a last minute thing and couldn’t have been more pleased with the outcome! With very little direction from us, you produced an amazing, professional, and perfect video. We also heard from many of our guests how professional and unobtrusive you were, which was very refreshing. Thanks again for all of your extra effort – because of you we’ll always be able to remember every perfect aspect of our wedding!!

Chris was great! We are so pleased with our finished video and Chris’s editing. I think one key thing about Chris, is that he really is “behind the scenes.” He wasn’t intrusive and I barely remember him being there, yet he captured all of our special moments. I would highly recommend him to any friends or family for videography. He also put up with our friends wanting to do several dedications, which took an enormous amount of patience. I can’t wait to show our video to our family – thanks Chris!

Destination Wedding, Mexico
My husband and I were married on a beautiful beach in Mexico. As a wedding photographer myself, my priority was stills and not video; however, my parents and grandmother (who was unable to attend) really wanted the day on film. So we compromised and brought our own video camera instead of hiring a videographer. What a mistake! A well-meaning friend taped the ceremony and some of the reception for us. At the time, we thought – great! BUT…then we got home and watched the footage. What a mess! We thought there was nothing worth salvaging but we called Chris of Pure Cinematography anyway to see if there was ‘anything’ he could do to help us. Well, let’s just say that Chris is a miracle worker! Really! He is! He took our real sorry footage and created a masterpiece! We could not have been more happy. That is, unless we hired Chris in the first place to videotape our wedding! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Chris!!

Chris was the videographer for our wedding. It wasn’t something we necessarily thought we wanted or needed, but decided to get. In the end, we can’t even believe we’d of considered not having Chris there to capture our day in such an amazing way! He was there for all of the details, catching what our photographer could not – the words that were spoken, the sounds of the day, my father crying while we danced. He was SO great at getting in there to capture the moment, without being obtrusive. I hardly noticed him there with his video camera.
