The team found a way when it stopped briefly to pull out the drone, which meant a lot to us, and that was just one of the nice gestures they did throughout the entire day and made for some really cool footage! They had 4 cameras filming all of the first dances, speeches, cake cutting, etc. so it makes for a really amazing wedding video that we are so in love with and will cherish forever. Drew is amazing at what he does and I can promise you, the videos are worth the wait! Drew was very responsive and went above and beyond!! I asked for a few different break out videos of the groomsmen surprise dance, father daughter dance, etc. and he did it with no problem! I would hire them again in a heartbeat!! Thanks so much again, Carlisle Films, for being a HUGE part of our Wedding Day and capturing it all for us to have forever. We are so thankful!

My biggest piece of advice to anyone planning a wedding.
GET A VIDEOGRAPHER.
It’s considered a “luxury” wedding item. But this needs to be on the list right next to the rings and the dress.
I cannot even put a price on this.
If it’s out of...
your budget, take out a small loan. Not kidding. And I am NOT someone who encourages spending money you don’t have or who encourages living in debt, I have never carried a credit card bill, I am insanely and proudly responsible with money. But THIS, I would’ve moved the moon and the stars to have. You can alway make more money; you cannot go back and get a wedding video.
If you are getting married- TRUST ME and MAKE THIS HAPPEN. You WILL REGRET IT. (Its the #1 things brides say they regret.)
If I had to pick between pictures and this video, I would choose the video all day.
First- you surprisingly don’t remember a lot of things that happen on your wedding day. Not because you’re drunk lol but because SO much is going on and you’re basically just walking emotion all day.
Secondly- think about being able to watch this when your 80. Think about your kids and grandkids being to watch. Imagine if you could go back and watch your parents getting married. I would pay anything to see that.
GET A VIDEOGRAPHER. I recommend getting a highlight reel AND a feature film that covers everything- the ceremony in its entirety, all speeches, and everything in between.
And you should use Carlisle 💁🏼♀️ because he’s so amazing and he worked with me so so well. I asked for A LOT of things. He stands out as my #1 vendor I was most impressed with in every single step.
I got a 7 minute highlight reel and a 2 hour feature film. Again, can’t put a price on this. Outside of the people in my life, this video is my most valued item on this earth. This incredible day being captured like this....just nothing better!
2 years later, I can’t even put into words how happy I am that I will always have this. 🙌🏼💛

rs for 2 months, watching hundreds (I’m not kidding) of videos trying to decide who to choose without going over $4000 for everything I wanted. I was being PICKY. I found Carlisle and started e-mailing him about what I liked and what I didn’t. I am big on slow-motion! I sent him out-of-town videographers work and asked if he could incorporate some of their style into my video along with his style. Not only were his responses ALWAYS super fast, but he was always overly willing to do what I asked. He was thorough in understanding my vision. I probably e-mailed him back and forth 10 times before I decided to go with him. I imagine he was probably really annoyed with my lengthy e-mails but he never showed it. He was always very accommodating.
Drew(Carlisle) understands great customer service and bridal satisfaction ;) but he is also amazing in his work. He didn’t shoot my video, but two very nice, fun guys did. And my wedding was during Hurricane Matthew and we were all running around like chickens with out heads cut off in the rain but Carlisle’s guys (feel bad for not remembering their names) stayed relaxed and helped me relax. Carlisle did the editing. The videos were perfect; the highlight film and the 2 hour main feature. This was the best money I’ve ever spent. Honestly, this video is priceless. My husband bitched about it at first and now he says, “I’m so glad we did that.” We sat on the couch and laughed and cried watching everything back. I cried really hard when it was over because even after 2 hours, I just hadn’t had enough. So we watched it again. I watch pieces of it almost every day. Biggest regret brides have is not getting a videographer. Biggest regret you'll have is not getting Carlisle to do your videography.

They truly have a gift and a talent when it comes to creativity. We were so surprised when we saw our wedding trailer not even 2 weeks after our big day (during the rush of wedding season), and I have not stopped watching it since. Shortly after, we received our full length film and immediately watched it. I loved being able to see all of the little details of the day that we missed and enjoyed watching our ceremony. Ashley and Drew are incredible! There's really no other way to describe the work that they do. Our wedding day went by so fast that it felt like a blur. Having this timeless video is something that we will treasure forever. We are so grateful that they were there to capture our day! We highly recommend them!!

When we started getting emotional watching others videos - we knew Drew had a great talent for capturing/editing those special moments.

We never anticipated having something to enjoy so soon and all of my family and friends said the same thing that we did - we just couldn't stop watching it over and over again! It got so many likes on our facebook page, so many views, and so many glowing comments and compliments of the amazing work and quality of the video and videographer. Even though we were there, it was like watching the trailer for an award winning film and we hardly even recognized ourselves! Within roughly a month from the wedding day, our next and biggest surprise was receiving our finished copies of the full wedding DVD in the mail. There were so many scenes from decor, touching moments, and people that we didn't even get to see while the festivities were taking place and the testimonials from our family and friends during the reception were enough to move us to tears. And to think, we were on the fence earlier in our wedding planning about getting a videographer and were strongly considering foregoing one all together. I can't stress enough that it was the BEST INVESTMENT we could have made into our wedding. Our photos were amazing but nothing takes the place of this high-quality, one-of-a-kind video that we have to enjoy year after year to relive the magic and memories of that day. It was over in a FLASH so the video has been a saving grace for us to enjoy and soak in the moment to say the least. I would recommend Carlisle Videography to ALL of my family and friends without hesitation. Thank you Drew and Ashley for sharing your gift for video with us! <3

My dad used to be a videographer in NYC, so I was very picky with who I chose as my videographer (I had to get the absolute best). Drew and Ashley captured my special day more than perfectly. The wedding trailer was posted when my husband and I were on our honeymoon. We could not resist waiting to see it, so we pulled it up immediately. I don't know how they did it, but they were able to sum up our entire day amazingly in a few minutes. We were so impressed with the trailer because of how professional and detailed it was. The interviews they do with the bride and groom tie in so nicely throughout the video. We knew the final product was going to be magical. We got our package in the mail and I was so excited to view it. Since then, we have had 4 viewing parties that we have hosted for various friends and family. Repeatedly I have heard remarks from everyone of how uniquely special our wedding video is, and how one of the best decisions we have made was getting Carlisle Videography for our wedding. The video is beautiful. The songs all tied in perfectly with one another. We were able to see details about our wedding that we missed, and that was one of the most amazing things about it. We saw what our friends and family were doing, what it was like for the other to get ready, how our dancing looked, and so many more things. Drew and Ashley also interviewed family members, and this was so very special. My husband's great grandmother passed away 6 days after the wedding, and there are so many special scenes in the video of her, one of which she is being interviewed. Your wedding day goes by in an instant, and details are so easily missed. You will want to distinctly remember your dad walking you down the aisle, and your grandma doing the robot in a dance competition. These are the moments you need captured by a videographer, so please hire Carlisle Videography to capture your special day. They are worth every single penny.

by ALL means trust his assistant Eric to capture your wedding - and do not be discouraged about only having one videographer in fear that something will be missed. Eric was charming and respectful to all guests - he encouraged interaction with the camera and the microphones, without creating a distasteful situation, and he NEVER missed a beat! He set up several cameras at the ceremony and reception, he organized private interviews of the bride (and later the groom) in which we will now always have a keepsake of what each of us were feeling the hours leading up to the ceremony, he captured the scenery, the decor, the food tables, the wedding party, the guests, the band, the exit at the end of the night - he literally was on top of EVERYTHING!
For about 3 1/2 months, we anxiously awaited the arrival of our highlight video (the approx. 5 minute video that summarizes the night and has really beautiful music clips - almost like a movie trailer) and our full video of the night (ours was approx. 120 minutes), but it was worth every single day of the wait!!! Our package included 5 DVDs that Drew and his team designed the cover to make it look like we were the stars of the film, even the back had everyone's names in the credits. The menu of the dvd has an elegant song playing and the conclusion scrolls everyone's names - it is a truly unique keepsake to say the least. The editing is immaculate - and there is no lack of detail anywhere!
I highly recommend Drew and his team to film your perfect wedding day. Our photographer was amazing, but we wouldn't have NEARLY the memories if we hadn't hired Drew and Eric of Carlisle Videography.

To be completely honest, Drew and Ashley weren't our first choice in wedding videographers because we were willing to spend a lot of money on our video because (being into videography myself) we knew there was a lot of value in it for the long...
term. After a few other videographers booked up, we were down to the mid range (in price) videographers and found Carlisle as an option. Their portfolio of work was not exactly what I was looking for: some of the videos I found cheesy, but we ultimately chose them because I saw that Drew and Ashley understood good camera shots (which is the hard part) and the songs/style could be custom chosen by us. In the end, I was blown away with the results.......
First off, Drew and Ashley are so down to earth, they saw us at several wedding shows and recognized us and it felt like we knew them for years. Just as I thought, Drew custom tailored our experience from the beginning by asking us about the venue, music, what we liked, etc. I liked that all their videos are posted so I could show parts of other videos that interested me to get them incorporated into our video. The day of Drew and Ashley were everything expected, professional and discrete (to the point that I pretty much forgot they were there). They got the entire day's worth of activities from getting ready to leaving the venue. It took a couple months to get back the footage to us which is understandable for being June, the heart of wedding season. But they also went above and beyond and gave us the raw footage at no cost (something others were asking an up charge for).
Overall, we would highly recommend Carlisle Productions for your wedding and would use them again if I ever needed a video in any other part of my life.

Carlisle Videography was an amazing vendor with which to work! Being a wedding vendor myself, I have worked with many videographers, and I couldn't have asked for better! They perfectly captured our day, including many moments that we missed. T...
he day flew by for us, so it was nice to sit down and watch all of the little moments. The trailer for our wedding was especially wonderful, and our DVDs arrived looking like a feature-length film! Drew made me feel comfortable in the interview before the wedding, and he and his wife were barely noticeable, which is a good thing, even while filming our important moments. I also loved the interviews he did with our closest family and friends during the reception. I would highly recommend this vendor to anyone in the Southeast! They were more than worth the money!

I booked my wedding with Carlisle Videography without having met this amazing couple. I made my decision solely based on the work that I saw on their website, and a couple of email conversations with Drew. This was the easiest and one of the b...
est decisions I ever could have made! We had a great time with them during both days of our wedding! We got a wedding trailer video first that was incredible. It was the length of one song, but incorporated the song and awesome clips of people speaking. It made me cry, our families cry, and even people at my work cry because it was so well put together and truly showed how much my husband and I care for each other. When we later received the package with the full length DVDs in them, they were beautiful and even better than I had imagined. Not only is the cover itself amazing, but the DVDs really allowed us to relive the most important days of our lives. I could not be happier with the work that Carlisle Videography did and would recommend them highly to anyone who values having a videographer as much as I did.

When planning our wedding a videographer wasn't the first on our minds. In fact, we hired Carlisle Videography just a couple days before our wedding. Not only were they extremely flexible but they were very excited and didn't hesitate to say YE...
S! Photography is usually the first vendor a Bride thinks to hire, but after our experience with Drew and Amy, Carlisle Videography NEEDS to be the first!!! A photo captures a single memory, that doesn't tell a story. Drew and Amy put together short interviews from the Bride and Groom that tell how they met and a lot more. A video allows you to see the love and feel the emotion of not only the wedding party but family and friends! Your wedding video can tell your story for years to come! Carlisle Videography captured scenes that would have otherwise been missed! Our wedding would not have been remembered if not for Drew and Amy. After our wedding ceremony there was a huge disaster that forced everyone to leave. Not only did we feel our wedding was devastating but we had no good memories that came from it. When we received our "movie trailer" it brought tears to my eyes. We were so amazed at how well Drew and Amy cut out the bad memories and gave us a movie to remember. We could never repay them for the priceless memories they have given back to us! Not only do they capture memories you see, but they go behind the scenes and interview the guests. To me this is very important because we are not promised tomorrow and you never know how much a short interview will mean when our loved ones are gone. My advice for Brides-to-be is to make sure you book Carlisle Videography FIRST! OUR MONEY WAS WELL SPENT! Thank you Drew and Amy!
