The heart behind Chris Pelley Films begins, about 30 days before the wedding day. It begins over a (sometimes virtual) coffee, iced tea, or your beverage of choice. 

“It’s my job to discover your nuances and preferences before the wedding day so that when you watch your film, you see your whole story reflected in each moment.” 

Chris’s couples are always commenting on how much emphasis Chris placed on getting to know them and creating a film that told their story.

A Personal Approach to Wedding Cinematography

Creating space for your story

trusted by:

for the INTENTIONAL couple.

Chris takes a considerate and subtle approach on the wedding day, opting to choose discrete equipment to preserve the peace and sanctity of each moment. While cinematography is certainly his passion, he understands that every wedding vendor has an equally important role to play and values teamwork and communication. There really is no end to the magic that can happen when everyone is operating in unity.

The Wedding Day





Chris takes a limited number of weddings each year to preserve the kind of above and beyond service his clients enjoy. Whether you are a planner or a bride, you are encouraged to inquire about dates 8-12 months in advance. 



Clients and planners can expect to receive a custom proposal of services based on each wedding’s unique needs and location. This ensures that every couple gets everything they want (and nothing they don’t).

Custom Proposals


30 days prior to the wedding, Chris will coordinate with you or your wedding planner to set up a check in call. This is where you will discuss all the nuances of your story as a couple as well as your logistical needs for the day.

30 day check in


When your day finally arrives, you will be free to relax and live in the moment knowing that your memories and story are being thoughtfully captured by a team who cares about every moment, big or small. Chris will keep in touch throughout the editing process and clients can expect to receive their films within 16-20 weeks.
