At times we could barely tell they were there due to the fact that they are so discreet about their filming....this takes real talent! Our only regret is that we didn't get to spend more time with them on our day because they were working so hard behind the camera to capture every moment so beautifully!

On the day of the wedding, he was a quiet, calming presence, able to capture the more candid moments between me and my husband that may have been forever lost had he not been there. Most importantly, though, the TRAILER. It is invaluable. Their editing and song choice captured the mood of our wedding and puts me right back there when I watch it. It has moments I had no idea he was present for (he is stealth!). The quality of the work is so high that I have had friends who are professional editors demand to know who made it.

I cannot give Bridefilm a better recommendation!! They were WONDERFUL!! I had a destination wedding, and MaryClare and Joe spent 3 days with us in Mexico. They fit right in with everyone and made everyone feel so comfortable around the cameras....
Honestly, I forgot the cameras were even there. Not only were they enjoyable to work with, the final product was beyond expectation (and we had high expectations)! Plus Joe used a drone to get incredible aerial footage! Bridefilm was able to document all the emotions, events, and memories of the week and the wedding day and create something that expressed them so much better than we would have ever been able to describe to people. While we may be biased about our wedding video being the best we have ever seen, our friends and family have been saying it really is the best they have ever seen!

YOU CAN'T DO BETTER THAN BRIDEFILM!
Let me just start by saying that Bridefilm has been on my radar for YEARS as the people I wanted to shoot my wedding one day-- I had seen numerous amazing videos, and I personally knew many of the people t...
hat had used them and were VERY happy with them as well.
With that being said, I was so blessed with being able to book Chris (and his wife MaryClare) for our special day since I planned my wedding in 8 months! I thought that they would surely be booked, but after calling "just to check", Chris immediately helped me book as well as helped me through the process of deciding which package would be best for our day as well as what we, as a couple, pictured for the end product!
I COULDN'T HAVE CHOSEN ANYONE MORE PERFECT TO CAPTURE OUR SPECIAL DAY as a whole AND each of the wonderful details I worked so hard to plan (decor, guests, etc)!! We loved being able to see a clip on Instagram from our gift exchange- that was an amazing sneak peak for me and my new husband to share!
THEY WERE VERY INVOLVED WITHOUT BEING INVASIVE!!! I loved that I barely knew they were getting the fun/goofy/quiet moments, because they never interrupted or took away from the night with massive lights and being in our faces all night (like I have sometimes seen in other vendors). They caught EVERYTHING without taking away from the importance and fun of the night. They did great with all of the MANY family members and WERE ALWAYS POLITE, CONSIDERATE, AND PROFESSIONAL to guests and other vendors!
THEY WERE GREAT TO WORK WITH AT EVERY TURN-- they were a plethora of things for us: ****SUPPORTIVE during decision making as well as during the wedding day chaos (everyone has this- lol).
****CREATIVE but in the realm that fit our taste and style (as well as their artistic abilities)
****HELPFUL during the entire wedding day- to capture all the details without getting in the way of the fun!
****CARING about us and what we wanted out of our day as well as our video.
****FUN and light-hearted during our first initial meeting through to the end of the night.
*****PROFESSIONAL at every meeting, with every phone call/email, and throughout the wedding day! I wanted a laid back, fun, memorable day.....and that is EXACTLY what they helped me to accomplish!
THANKS TO BRIDEFILM, the day was absolutely amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Chris (and of course, MaryClare) were such a large part of making everything run smoothly and effortlessly. Without their planning in advance, meeting with us in person months in advance, helping us plan over the phone/email, and getting to know us as individuals as well as a couple, this day and the video wouldn't have been the same. They gave 110% in everything they did, and they truly made us feel super comfortable and cared for throughout the entire process. I couldn't thank them enough!!!!!

I love their documentary style. One thing I requested of them was to not be too "in the way" during the wedding. I hate going to other weddings and the videographer is blocking all the good views. I wanted them to be a fly on the wall and that's exactly what I got. :)
They are also flexible with a payment plan which I appreciated!
The only negative I would mention is that I spoke with Chris the entire year leading up to the wedding and on the wedding day he wasn't there. Two women came instead, which is totally fine I just wish I would have received a heads up about that beforehand. (He may have been there for part of the reception but never introduced himself)

le, but they are the most congenially talented videographers out there.
We live in Ohio and had a New Orleans destination wedding in June, 2013. Bride Film worked with us every step of the way via phone calls, emails and even included meeting us out for lunch on one of our visits down in the New Orleans area to get a better feel for who we are and exactly what we were looking for in our product. There was no stone left unturned. Yes, for some of us looking to minimize costs on their overall wedding budget Bride Film may seem a bit more pricey in comparison to other vendors. However, the investment is worth every penny. As a means to accommodate every couple, Bride Film does offer a few differently priced packages to choose from. We chose the package that best suited our needs and are so very happy with our film.
Everyone at Bride Film loves what they do and they take their time to get to know you as a couple so your film is a reflection of who you and your husband truly are. Bride Film doesn't simply provide you with a wedding video, they tell your love story through the camera lens. The level of care and pride they put into the filmmaking process is unparalleled. If you're looking for professionalism, quality, talent, and the very best videographers available, then look no further. Please take my advice and don't let the opportunity to work with such an amazing group of extremely talented people on your special day pass you by.

We are New Yorkers who got married in the Big Easy in March. We also can’t believe how quickly the time has gone by! We meant to review Bridefilm months ago but the wedding was followed by lots of (good) craziness!
Bridefilm was excellent, ...
simply put. Chris and MaryClaire were on time, professional, organized, and were a well oiled machine. They gave us direction when we needed it, and quietly faded into the backdrop. This being said, they captured every moment with such color, and intimacy, and the night was perfectly recorded. It also helped that they were genuine, likable, and it really did feel like their priority was right there with my husband and I. They worked beautifully with our photographer, and the other vendors. Our family and friends also spoke highly of them. We highly recommend Bridefilm and know other couples with find the experience just as wonderful as we did.
P.S. - Our local jeweler here in Upstate NY (where we bought our wedding bands engagement ring) saw the video that Bridefilm did of our wedding, and actually asked to use the footage in a commercial for his store! Chris was amazing in getting us the extra footage and facilitating this for us, and it's so exciting to see our amazing wedding, and their great video on TV. Thanks again Chris!

e editing choices were poor (long shots of people's feet or the buffet table) and important footage was not included. Also the owner, Chris, was not there himself to video my wedding, it was two of his other videographers. Unfortunately, I fainted at my ceremony and did not recover until close to the end of the reception. Luckily I did have a first dance, and was feeling well enough to return for the end of the reception and was able to dance and even get on stage with my husband and the band. We extended the reception an hour and all of our other vendors stayed without a problem. Bride Film left before the end without telling anyone, and I only discovered this after seeing my reception footage, which did not include us dancing at the end or on stage, it only shows 4 minutes of me seated at the end of the reception (two minutes from one angle, and two minutes from another to make the footage look longer perhaps). I let Bride Film know my concerns and it took them 3 months to respond in an impolite manner without any apology or solution. I was told they came 30 minutes early (which we never asked) and stayed 30 minutes later (which if they did I am not sure why I am only in 4 minutes of film, and why if the reception was still going they left without saying anything or didn't ask for more money if that was the issue). I am not one to complain or write negative reviews, but this has hurt me and I don't want anyone else to be stuck in this position. I know many people are happy with BF's work and I have a unique situation, but I just want others to be cautious in hiring BF for their wedding as its a day you never get back!

Chris was very easy to work with. His work is amazing, but we were a little disappointed in the time we had to wait for our video- only because we were told we'd get it earlier than we did. BUT this was WAAAAY before other videographers get i...

Christopher Serio of BrideFilm was the videographer of my daughter's wedding in New Orleans in October of 2010. When I contacted him and mentioned what we were looking for in a videographer, little did I know what a truly amazing job he would...
do! Everything we asked for... he delivered... and then some!!! He is very professional and his final product is supurb! We all could not be happier w/ his artistic work! Thank you, Chris!

After debating for months about whether we wanted/needed/could afford a videographer, my fiance and I decided to gather research on videographers in our area. Several vendor websites were horribly outdated and the quality of the videos was ave...
rage at best. Luckily, however, we stumbled across BrideFilm and were so excited to see the footage on their website. I held my breath as I checked into their prices and found them astoudingly affordable. Chris was extremely responsive to my emails and assured me that there would be nothing to worry about on the wedding day. He was right. One of Chris' employees called on the wedding day offering to capture our First Look session (although this was not included in our contract) for no extra charge. He arrived on time, captured every moment we imagined he should, and exceeded our expectations across the board. He appears in none of our family's pictures and was very unobtrusive. And ... TWO DAYS after the ceremony, Chris published our "trailer" and within the week we had our 8 minute highlight video! The highlights were passed around to family and friends and the compliments on the professional quality of the video have been overwhelming. Not only did BrideFilm capture the special, important moments but they also edited those moments into a creative recap of the day that we will enjoy for years to come. The only negative I can think of is that the raw footage on our DVD of the reception is well, very raw, but the most important thing is that we have our highlight video to share and enjoy. In conclusion, I would highly recommend BrideFilm to anyone looking for a wedding videographer. You will not regret it :)

Pre-wedding: Several New Orleanian wedding videographers were recommended to me. I viewed websites, watched trailers, and looked at pricing. Bridefilm's quality was just as good as the others and Chris's attention to personal details about ea...
ch couple really impressed me. What blew me away, though, was the difference in cost. Bridefilm was BY FAR the best value.
Wedding time: Chris came to my house on the westbank as scheduled, several hours before the pre-ceremony "first-look" & photo shoot in the French Quarter followed by the wedding uptown. He was very courteous, friendly & unobtrusive while we girls got our hair and make-up done. He also filmed my groom & his boys at the Roosevelt before heading to the French Quarter & uptown. He worked really well with my photographer and never appeared in any pictures, which is amazing when you see the video footage he took.
Post-wedding: It was 2 weeks after the wedding and we had just got back from our honeymoon when Chris emailed us a link to our high-def wedding film "trailer" on vimeo. We could forward this link or post it on our Facebook page. He also sent me a downloadable version, in case we had trouble with the online version. IT WAS FANTASTIC!!! Several of my friends reported crying in front of their computer screens watching it. The details Chris captured on film, edited, and assimilated to the music we had chosen... well, it was just really touching. He summed up the whole point of the wedding in 3 minutes of video and song. Within a few days, he emailed us a link to the 17 minute version, which was stellar as well. The full DVD will be out within a week.
Summary: Chris earned our full confidence as a professional with his consistency and timing. He has captured our admiration as an artist with just the smallest sample of the final product. Thanks, BrideFilm!!!

Chris at Bride Film was great. He's super nice and very accommodating. We had decided to get a videographer pretty late in the planning, so one day I emailed and left messages with about 6 companies. He called me back first, later that day as h...
e was getting off of a plane. Other places called me a week later. We met with him the next day. His work is great, kind of modern and fun, just what we had wanted. And after comparing all the other prices from websites, his was the best. He came to the hotel, out and about in the french quarter, and the wedding venue. He was very relaxed and very helpful.
