I cannot even begin to say how wonderful Alan and his team are. They provided spectacular service from leading up to the wedding itself, to the on-site service, to the follow-up. Leah, his assistant was in touch with us about every little detail. Although we live in LA, our... Read More wedding was a destination wedding in Maine, and Alan and Katrina traveled from LA to Kennebunkport Maine to capture our wedding. The B-Roll was to die for. It truly captured the essence of the small, nautical town that we were married in. They put together the most jaw-dropping highlight real, and ceremony coverage. Better yet, we got to keep all their raw footage, so we can watch it in years to come, all the speeches, toasts, special moments, moments we may have missed, etc. Alan and his team have provided us with something we will treasure for so many years to come. Hiring them was without a doubt the best decision we made in our wedding.

Words cannot adequately describe the amazing experience we shared or the gratitude we feel for Alan Larsen and his team, but we will try! Cinematography was at the top of our list, and leading up to our wedding, we spent about an hour every night for about 2 months reviewing... Read More cinematographers in and out of our state. I had come across Alan’s work and was SHOCKED when a video of complete strangers had me in tears within minutes. His ability to capture a love story in such a brilliant, artistic, and creative way put an end to our crazy internet search and solidified that he was the ONE we wanted to share our special day with. Out of all the vendors we worked with, we are most impressed with his team’s responsiveness and attention to detail. Leah C., his coordinator, was easy to access via phone/text/e-mail, and she quickly answered our questions and concerns during the process. She made the experience EASY, a big bonus for brides :) About 6 weeks to my wedding date, I had an opportunity to sit down with Alan, and it was incredible how comfortable he made me feel. He was beyond helpful and provided me with recommendations on lighting, ceremony positioning and much more. On the day of our wedding, Alan and his assistant Chelsea felt like a part of the family. They were so fun, kind, and respectful—all qualities we love! If the wedding film wasn’t our #1 need, we would have pulled a chair and table for them to join us as our guests. They are wonderful people to have around you on your big day. A little more about the talented Alan Larsen—he exceeded our expectations during and after our wedding day. He stepped in when our wedding coordinator went missing, and he helped organize our guests for our bubble send off. We received our film while on our honeymoon, and we were blown away by the quality and detail that he put into it. We received so many messages and phone calls from vendors, families, and friends raving about how beautifully done the video was. I could go on and on listing off all the reasons why you should hire Alan Larsen for your big day, but the product speaks for itself. You need to check out his website and enjoy all of his amazing films; I am confident that you will be impressed. If you’re on the fence about getting a cinematographer, I recommend that you go for it. It’s one of the only things at your wedding that you will be able to cherish forever. The favors will go, the flowers will wilt, the dress will likely sit in a box in your closet, but Alan Larsen’s wedding film will allow you to relive one of the best days of your life over and over again. I highly recommend that you look no further and book him today!


Worth it!

I was not convinced I needed a videographer at my wedding but we had a lot of family from overseas who could not attend and my husband insisted on it. I was completely wrong... not only did we need it, but I would have been crushed if we didn't have it. It turned out better than...

Thanks Alan & Leah!

Some of my friends had used Alan Larsen films, and now it was finally my turn. I knew I wanted to use the company when I found myself crying watching the wedding videos found on their social media and website of people that I didn't even know. Also, being apart of my friend's... Read More wedding, I was given a preview of how the video and photography team operated, and they captured her day perfectly. Many of our friends inquired about using the company after they saw her video and photos, which were incredible, and I couldn't wait for ours after! My expectations were high, and yet Alan still exceeded them. I was blown away with our video and cannot tell you how many people both who attended our wedding and who just viewed it on social media have commented on how amazing our wedding looked and was captured. We have been asked numerous times about the company that captured our day. It is such an amazing keepsake and I have watched it a hundred or more times. I can't get enough! I highly recommend using Alan Larsen films for video and photography on your big day; you will not be disappointed!

There should be an option for 10 stars for Alan Larsen. When we started wedding planning, my husband and I were very hesitant to get a videographer for our wedding. We didn't think we needed it. After talking to a few friends, and Drew from Alan Larsen, we decided to go for it.... Read More (After all, you spend SO much time, money energy planning, a video is the best way to capture it all and be able to look back and reminisce!) Three days after our wedding, we got an email with our fully edited video back (ONLY THREE DAYS?!?!) I was absolutely shocked by their turnaround time and even more surprised at the quality of the video. I have never cried so much in one day. When I posted our video we started getting texts, calls, etc from our friends and family who were RAVING about how amazing the video was! He perfectly captured our day better than we could have ever imagined. Got all of the important moments, people, the laughing, the crying. EVERYTHING! Even the song he chose for our video is now one of our FAVORITE songs (though we had never heard of it until Alan!) We are so grateful for Alan Larsen Films! Just watch his videos; they speak for themselves!

Our photographer recommended Alan Larsen to us and we couldn't have been happier! They did and absolutely amazing job at capturing all of the touching, funny, and heart-warming moments over our entire wedding weekend. Then they stitched it all together into a perfect 10 minute...

His shots were so bright and vivid and he weaved all of the speeches and the ceremony together to capture the real essence of our day--the laughter the tears, everything. If capturing the spirit of your special day matters to you, Alan is your guy. Trust me, he's worth it.

Alan and Drew shot my wedding in June and they were such a dream to work with! We first met Alan in June of 2015 when he shot my little sisters wedding. We were so impressed with how we never felt like we saw him or his team! They were everywhere but never in the way! We saw my... Read More sisters video and omg it blew us away!!!!!! My boyfriend at the time, now husband and I told each other we would for sure be using them when we got married. Well two years later here we Are and they blew us away AGAIN. The level of professionalism and class they had the entire day was so refreshing. Again they were everywhere capturing every moment. Alan also took the time to make sure that our video was different than my sisters but still just as amazing, the fact that he even thought about that shows the level or professionalism and work ethic he has. We can't thank the both of them enough for going above and beyond for our wedding. We are so happy with how the video came out!!! Do yourself a favor and hire them!!! It will be one less thing to worry about on your special day :)!!!

I apologize that this review is long overdue. It wasn't difficult for me to decide on Alan Larsen Films for our wedding videographer for 9.4.16. Two of my best friends had ALF film their weddings and I trust them 100%. ALF did not disappoint! Drew Wyman was our person of contact... Read More throughout the entire process. He was very professional, prompt and thorough. He set us up on video conference prior to our big day to speak with Alan, Katrina and himself to iron out the details. It went smoothly, and I love that everyone was professional, but also very flexible and understanding. We provided little direction with just the note that my husband (fiance, at the time) were very easy-going and flexible people. On our wedding day, Katrina and Lanly arrived on time and did their thing. They were accommodating, friendly and just very easy to work with. What I remember most was how stealth they were throughout the ceremony and reception. What Alan Larsen Films produced was beyond our expectations! We love the highlight video and have watched it over two dozen times! The whole saying, "you get what you pay for" really applies. Pricing may have been out of our budget, but if you're asking professionals to capture your big day, you need to pay more for quality work and ALF definitely delivered. ALF requested our song list and incorporated the songs with the speeches to make our video flow and transition nicely. We look forward to sharing our wedding memories with our future children and grandchildren, a memory that can be relived each time we watch our video. Thank you Alan Larsen Films and your exceptional team!

Read More I went through good videographers that charge WAY too much money, and bad videographers who still charge way too much money... I went through arrogant videographers who didn't want to speak to me, to forgetful (possibly newer) videographers... And then there was Alan Larsen Films... Alan and his team are AMAZING. Seriously. I didn't even know they were there most of the time, and when they were there, they were hilariously funny and knew exactly what to do to distract me from the camera lens in my face. They were responsive when I emailed them with questions and great at giving gentle reminders when I had 309475938 things on my mind and forgot about something for them. And their videos... they're incredible. OH, AND HE GOT ALL OF OUR VIDEOS BACK TO US 3 WEEKS AFTER THE WEDDING. Frigging incredible. Well worth the money. Trust me. Trust me trust me trust me. Alan Larsen Films was the best choice. I know. I probably watched 400 wedding videos to get to Alan Larsen. They rock. Choose them. You won't regret it.

If you need a videographer for your wedding or any special event Alan Larsen Films is the way to go. My husband and I were originally not going to have a videographer for our wedding because we didn't want anyone in our faces as we were trying to enjoy our wedding day. We are... Read More used to going to weddings and seeing annoying vidographers but Alan and his crew are absolutely amazing and are the complete opposite. They are like flies on a wall and are so polite and kind. Everyone was telling us that we were going to regret not getting a videographer so we changed our minds last minute and we are so glad we did. Our wedding planner recommended Alan Larsen Films and we booked them a few days before the wedding. Because we were pressed for time we did a quick video chat and Alan and Drew got to know us and what we wanted before the wedding. On the day of the wedding, Alan and Andrew were so accommodating. We had a hotel suite full of girls getting ready and they were completely out of the way and knew what to do and when to do it. They also worked really well with our photographer and followed them closely to get all the footage for the highlight video. They did such a phenomenal job capturing important moments for us and we were so happy to be able to re-live them again. Also really important their work turn around is super fast. We got married in the middle of October and got our highlight video exactly 1 month after and we were able to make changes after seeing our video to get exactly what we wanted. We have already shown the video to a few friends and family and they are just amazed on how beautiful it is and the quality of the work. I am a huge Disney fan and all my friends thought the highlight video had the Disney charm and reminded them of a sweet Disney movie. We are so thankful to have had the chance to work with such great people and we are very happy with how the highlight video turned out. They are truly the best!
