About this Vendor

I believe in marriage, and my films focus on yours

The first thing I want you to know about me is that I believe in marriage and I want my film to be an investment in your marriage. That's why all of my films focus in on people before props. Though you'll have beautiful decorations, the truth is that there is much more power and emotion behind you and your loved ones than a flower arrangement. So I focus on you and your spouse, your personalities, and the subtle nuances in your relationship that make you smile just thinking about them. I think this is why every single one of my clients love their films. 2017 weddings are booking quickly so message me today so we can lock in your date.

Lasting Memory Made

I would give up my dress before I'd give up my wedding video if I had to do it all over again. Luke created pure art and I love reliving the memory through his camera lens.

I met Luke at a bridal show when I was looking for a videographer. I was drawn to him as soon as I saw one of his sample films. It was movie quality and truly told a story and that's what I wanted. His fun personality and kind demeanor were a plus! Luke made it easy for me to... Read More send paperwork online and he stayed in touch answering all of my questions. On our big day he fit right in! We had a blast with him! Although, at times, I forgot he was there! That was a good thing though becusse he truly captured all of the emotion and joy of our day! Your wedding day is a whirlwind and you don't get to savor every moment or the details like you think you will. Luke captured everything about our special day! My husband and I watch the film more than we should admit but every single time we watch it we relive our day, often seeing some detail of our wedding for the first time. The film looks like a movie and truly tells the story. The music the film is set to was perfect as well. I was very surprised after watching our highlight film that he also gave me some uncut versions of the film. We have our entire best man and maid of honor speeches on there as well as some dancing at the reception and cake cutting. This is the best money we spent throughout the entire wedding!!!! You won't regret hiring him!

If I could give Luke at LWfilms more than 5 stars I would in a heartbeat! I had a vision or our film and Luke ensured that all those dreams were met and more. From planning to executing shots on the day of we could not have asked for a better videographer!

I hired Luke within 4 weeks of my wedding because the videographer we had scheduled for our wedding fell through, and I’m very glad I did! He was so accommodating in scheduling videography services on such short notice, and he spent quite a while talking with me on the phone and... Read More going over the different options with me. The day of my wedding, I got so many compliments, both from other vendors and from family/friends/guests, on Luke and his demeanor. He was very kind to everyone, wasn’t in the way of the photographers, and was just all around pleasant to talk with and be around all day. I absolutely love the highlight video that he did for us. It’s everything I could have hoped for, and we received so many compliments about the wonderful videography and editing that he did. I did opt to pay for the raw footage as well, because I wanted to be able to hear every bit of all the important aspects of the wedding, such as the ceremony, vows, speeches, etc. I did have a bit of an issue with the ceremony footage, as every time Luke would move to get into a different angle to shoot the ceremony, the camera would turn off for about 30 seconds and then he would turn it back on once he got into the new position. I wanted continuous footage of the ceremony and thought that’s what I would get, so I was initially disappointed. Luke explained to me that continuous ceremony footage was a separate add-on option that I must not have seen in the booking process due to the frenzy of trying to book someone so last minute, so that was my fault. But he did go above and beyond in kindness to help me resolve the issue, and he had some additional footage that made me feel much better to have. I would definitely recommend booking Luke Woodward Films, both for his professionalism on the wedding day and his beautiful work that I’ll treasure forever!

LWFilms did a fantastic job on our wedding. From first contact, Luke was informative, clear, and personable to deal with. One of the best communicators among all our wedding vendors. The day of the wedding, our videographer Josh was both incredibly patient with all the chaos... Read More around us, while also being completely unobtrusive except when necessary, and getting some awesome shots of the leadup to the ceremony, the ceremony itself, and the reception afterwards. Finally Luke did a wonderful job editing the video together to create something we'll revisit over and over throughout our marriage, delivering it on time and with great quality. We really love the video and so has everyone we've shown it to. I'd also like to call attention to his attention and caring as we were dealing a terminal illness in the family at the time...while it sadly ended up being unnecessary, he was working with us to get some unedited video to show the family member who wasn't going to be able to attend. It really meant a lot at a difficult time that we felt like there was nothing to worry about regarding one thing at least.

Quite possibly the best money we spent on our wedding was for the wedding video that Luke made for us. He was perfect through out the whole day. He arrived early, was easy going and was the perfect mix of professional and funny. The video captures the emotion and overall feeling...

Honestly, I am not sure where to start with my review of LWfilms because I was absolutely speechless after watching our video. LW films is hands down AMAZING. I think it has already been stated, but I too, would give up my wedding dress before I gave up my video. The first time... Read More I spoke with Luke over the phone to discuss booking him for our wedding, it was as if I had known him forever. He is wonderful to work with; He responds to phone calls and emails promptly; He is sneaky in the sense, that he gets some excellent angles and you do not even know he is around (we got some of those =]]]) Prior to booking LWfilms for our wedding, my husband and I debated on whether or not we should have a videographer. After seeing our film and having Luke present on our wedding day, I truly could not imagine our wedding taking place without him there capturing everything so special. The day is such a whirlwind and you hardly remember anything after its all said & done, but having the film to reflect on for the rest of your life is something you will cherish forever. Countless hours are spent planning your wedding; from the very beginning when you are trying to figure out the perfect date, your colors, your venue, decor, cake flavors, etc. and the list goes on. Trust me, having a film created by Luke Woodward, will remind you of all of the time you put into planning your production and you can see the masterpiece that you created through his camera lens. This was by far the best investment we made for our wedding. If you are looking for excellent quality and friendly service that is affordable, Luke Woodward with LWfilms is the man to hire!

Luke Woodward

My life is really great right now. I am blessed to be a husband to Jennifer for 9 years, and a father to Allie Grace, who we adopted late last year. I love being creative and helping people with my creativity and producing wedding films seems to be a great opportunity for me to do that. Apart from building LWfilms into a growing team of extraordinary people, I also serve several non-profits in telling their stories through film. It is an incredible opportunity to be a small part of all the good these organizations do. Thanks for taking the time to learn a little about me.
