After watching the amazing wedding videos on their website, we knew we had to book Cork Creative. They were the first vendor we hired, and it was the best decision we made. Caleb and Tara are true artists. Not only do they care about their work, they care about your story --... Read More what makes you different and unique and wonderful. Then they work their creative magic to illustrate exactly who you are as couple (or in our case, family). Throughout the process they made sure that their work aligned with our vision while still stamping their signature style on each project. We used Cork for just about everything -- our engagement pictures, our wedding photos and our videography. Everything turned out perfect -- above and beyond our expectations. They captured beautiful moments that will last us a lifetime, and for that we will always be grateful. Cork Creative is an amazing company, and it starts from the inside out. Caleb and Tara are awesome people and have become true friends of ours. Plain and simple: Hire Cork Creative, and you'll get the best film of your lives.

Caleb and Tara of Cork Creative were perfect. Throughout the day of the wedding they were extremely professional and helpful. Their experience was invaluable, they went above and beyond. For example, there was a point in the morning when nerves and emotions were running high.... Read More Tara's impromptu recommendation, though not on the agenda, was spot on and is one of our favorite memories of the day. For us, the wedding video was priority over photos. We wanted the best and we got the best. You can tell they put their whole heart into the editing. The final product could not have been any better, and is far better than we could have ever imagined. They are great people, easy to work with, and fun to be around. We couldn't recommend Cork Creative highly enough.


Can I give this review a million stars?

From the very beginning, Caleb was such a pleasure to work with! He asked a lot of questions and really listened to what we wanted in our wedding film. The day of our wedding, Caleb and his team were so much fun to have around! They were professional and got the job done but... Read More also had fun with all of us while doing so. We could not be more happy with the results. Myself, my husband, and all of our family and friends have been in tears as we re-live our special day through all of the amazing moments that Caleb captured in our wedding film. Everything was beautifully done. He interpreted our vision perfectly! Caleb and his team have the experience that you are looking for to really deliver a one of a kind film. I highly recommend the Cork Creative team for your wedding - you will not be disappointed!

Cork Creative did the most amazing wedding video for our special day! I wasn't positive I wanted a wedding video, but I'm so incredibly grateful that I decided to.

If there is one thing that you should do for your wedding, it is to book Cork Creative! The video and photos are the only thing outside of your memories that you have to hold onto after the big day is all said and done. And honestly, watching a video of your Big Day will bring... Read More it all back to you in the most emotionally overwhelming, jubilant way. Caleb and Tara are truly such a breath of fresh air and a beam of light within the wedding industry. They are cool, calm, collected and they communicate so very well. Once you get into planning, it is amazing how hard it is to get a response from vendors... not the case with this crew! They traveled to Santa Fe to shoot our wedding and I was impressed that on the actual day of the wedding, they had already scouted several locations that they wanted to use. It was awesome to have such a proactive vendor to work with and not have to make a million decisions on the day of the wedding. I also told them my expectations and the important moments to me before the wedding day and felt like they executed it flawlessly on the day of. The videos and photos they create are true works of art... definitely not your uncle standing in the back with a tripod video recorder and a badly looped soundtrack. Cork brings the day to the next level. I also have to give them a shout out for being so willing to help in other areas of our day like how to actually plan out a wedding day timeline, etc. They really will help you in any way they can.

Cork Creative is just the tops. I could definitely tell they were passionate about what they do from the first email I got back from Caleb. Caleb and Tara are the kind of people you want to go on adventures with. I never got the chance to talk to Tara, as all our interactions... Read More were online (my husband and I live in LA but our wedding was in KS), but Caleb was extremely responsive, flexible, and delightful to talk to. Unfortunately, they were unavailable the weekend of our wedding because they had already been booked for another one in Colorado - but we worked with Micah, who was also very talented and fun to work with. When we met via Skype the first time, we worked out all the details within the first 10 or 15 minutes and spent the rest of the time cracking jokes and talking about our lives. I feel like the purpose of that meeting wasn't just to discuss the contract/work, but to get a sense of who my husband and I are...what we love about each other and how Cork Creative was going to capture that. The day of the wedding, Micah and his crew showed up on time and ready to go. We opted to add a same-day video to be shown at the end of our reception and I am so so glad we did. It was expensive, yes, but everyone at our wedding was blown away by the quality and continue to talk about it. It made me burst into tears of joy! Definitely one of the most memorable moments of an already very memorable day. I can't comment on the other video (of ceremony/first dance/etc.) because we haven't received them quite yet. You can't rush these things, because it really is an art. But I will come back to update the review as soon as I get to see them. I can't wait! Caleb has become one of those "good people to know" guys who we keep up with on social media. Him and his wife Tara are always on the move, filming the most gorgeous weddings all around the world. In essence, I strongly recommend Cork Creative! They are higher on the price range, but so worth every penny. These and the photos are what we have for the rest of our lives. Everything else (flowers, cake, etc.) is gone in a day. My advice is to prioritize when picking out vendors. What matters the most to you? If you said the video(s) or photographs, then this is the vendor for you!

From our very first meeting to the unveiling of our wedding film the good folks at Cork were absolutely wonderful to work with.

I truly believe Cork is the best videography in Kansas City. When shopping around, we realized Cork stands out in so many ways. Their videos are personalized, beautiful, and meaningful. I love how the videos are artistic, without being too over the top. They are great at... Read More allowing the beauty of the day to shine through and be the focus of the film. So glad we went with them. I also have to commend how accommodating Caleb was to us throughout the planning process. When we were researching videographers, Cork was booked on our date, which crushed us. After reading out to Cork for some recommendations, they offered to film our wedding even though they were already booked! We actually had Drew and Micah film for us, rather than Caleb and Tara, but we still feel like we got a superior product. Everyone working for the Cork team is extremely talented, professional, and kind. We are so glad they got to be a part of our day.

We used Cork Creative to capture our wedding day on video. Words cannot describe what we got back. In just over 5-7 minutes of film they captured the spirit of the entire day. Then when we got our full length footage it was further proof that they really knew who we were and... Read More what was important about our day. Caleb and Tara were great at communicating to us and our wedding party through out the day, non-invasive and really listened to what we were looking for when capturing our wedding. I only wished I had hired them to capture both nights! I would highly recommend them to any Bride and Groom.

In the process of planning our wedding, my husband and I were unsure of whether or not we wanted a videographer but after meeting Caleb and Tara at a wedding event called Bella Sposa in KC, I went home and immediately knew they were THE ONE. Every past video that I watched of... Read More theirs made me feel as if I was there. I tell all my friends that I knew they were the one because I found myself tearing up while watching videos of complete strangers :) Not only do Caleb and Tara do great work but they make it a point to make you feel comfortable. They both take the time to get to know you and I would have to say to say without a doubt I whole heartedly trust in the work they do and who they are. Caleb would go out of his way to show me a recording of something I had missed and you don't find people like that these days. Communication with these two is effortless. They were able to work around my schedule as a med school student and my husband's which is hectic to say the least. The anticipation in waiting to see our wedding film is growing every day but I know and trust that when we receive it, it will be everything and more that we wanted. I can't say enough great things about these two. I would book them again in a heart beat and love that they are so passionate about telling every story they're apart of. They are true storytellers.

I honestly cannot recommend these two enough, you will not regret hiring Cork Creative. Great people, great work.

If we could give them 1,000 stars we would. We knew right when we started wedding planning that we wanted a photographer/videographer that we felt comfortable being around but also just showed a strong passion for what they do. When we first met Caleb and Tara we hit it right... Read More off. I felt as if we had hung out numerous times before and we were all just catching up! These two will make you feel so welcome and comfortable that you will not even notice they are there! We did our engagement photos in the spring and that day is one that my now husband and I still talk about. We laugh about how it was like the most odd, perfect, romantic date night ever, but yet we were being photographed the whole time. We definitely fell even more in love that night and being able to capture the love, kisses, laughter, and silliness makes it so much better. And to think that was only for our engagement pictures. Our wedding was INSANE! They were there for it all! From the rehearsal the morning of to the last song being played by the dj. These two and their crew were absolutely amazing. They were so stealthy too! You wouldn't even know they were there filming you. One of the biggest things I appreciated on our wedding day though is not that just we appreciated them, but our wedding party made numerous comments about them to us which meant a lot. If you want someone that is going to be quiet, awkward, and unorganized for your wedding don't pick these guys because they are far above and beyond that! We haven't even seen our pictures and video from our big day yet but we already know that we are going to be blown away and probably shed a few more happy tears. Cork is one of a kind and if your looking for someone that is professional, fun, and passionate you better book them immediately because while you were reading this review someone else just booked them :) We look forward to using them again in the future for baby and family pics!

The search for our videographer was an easy one. We felt that films from other videographers were a bit awkward and stale. Once you view Cork's films, you'll see they are on an entirely different caliber than the rest. They are so incredibly original and innovative. Their... Read More films aren't generic (instead, they have a little edge and quirkiness to them), they highlight the personalities of each couple, and they don't stick to a formula. In our highlight video, they were able to add in so many fleeting, but special moments, and most of all, they gave us a story of love, something that we'll be reminded of each time we watch it. Our video is our most cherished gift from our wedding day. Don't miss out on Caleb and Tara's unmatched talent. They are amazingly gifted, genuinely kind souls. They will surprise you and blow you away!


INCREDIBLE videography!!!

There isn't a review that can truly do Cork Creative justice. I found Cork Creative when a best friend hired them to make her wedding video. I was enamored with the talent and creativity brought into their craft. When we decided to go with Cork Creative, Caleb met me for over an... Read More hour just to find out what we liked, who we were, and what we were hoping to get out of our video. After, we just chatted like old friends. He truly took time out of the day, not just to get the job done, but to get to know us as a couple. When the big day finally came, he was ready to capture all the moments I hoped he would. Although I was busy, like all brides are, I took the time to notice all of the small shots I know anyone else but him would miss. It makes me giddy to think about what the video will turn out like because I know they were behind all of it. You can tell as he shows you an awesome video shot with a huge smile on his face how EXCITED he is about being a part of something so special time and time again. The most stand up thing Cork Creative did was something I just wanted to tell anyone who is hoping to hire a videographer. Two hours before the reception ended (it was a 6 hour reception, so it was a long one), he approached me saying that he got a LOT of footage and it should be more than enough to get the video I was hoping for. He also mentioned he had a wedding at 9am, but would stay if I wanted him to. I told him to go home that I am so happy with what he had and it was no big deal at ALL! Over an hour passed and as I made my rounds, I saw him shooting more footage on the dance floor, smiling. He doesn't do this as a means to an end. Cork Creative truly respects their clients and wants to capture all of life's beautiful moments. We are so honored to have them capture our special day. If you haven't seen the calibur of their film, go check them out. It was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning. LOVE Cork Creative and their beautiful art they create on a regular basis.
