  • Where do I even begin… Clarissa is absolutely amazing! With less than a month to go, our wedding plans completely changed due to Covid-19. After all of our original plans were cancelled, we completely moved states and were so worried that we would not find a videographer. Elephant Memories saved the day! Clarissa was quick to respond and jumped right in like she was family. She even offered ideas to help our vision come to life. With the stress of everything changing so quickly, it was a huge relief to find a videographer that was genuinely excited to be a part of our day. She did not hesitate to wake up super early and hike with us. She wanted to make sure we got the most breathtaking mountain shots, and WOW is all I can say! Our love, our family, the location, every tear, every laugh, every detail of our day was captured so perfectly. The video was so much more than we ever imagined and we cry every time we watch it! Clarissa is so much fun to work with, she became an instant frien... Read more

  • What can I say! Amazing! We are so grateful that Elephant memories shot our wedding. They was able to capture every single special moment and did such a beautiful job! We wanted to keep our wedding video within a relatively modest budget, but still wanted not to compromise in any way. Very professional, punctual, excellent equipment, creative and easy to work with. Also was amazing that they could speak in spanish with my guests. Thank you so much!

  • Working with Clarissa from Elephant Memories was such a special and amazing experience. She listened to every idea we had and fully customized our video to who we are as a couple and what we wanted! We absolutely LOVE our video, it is so gorgeous and gives us such a special way to look back on our day. We were amazed at the high quality and at the artistic and beautiful moments she captured from our day, she really was able to capture the emotion and happiness. Clarissa is a pleasure to work with, she is so kind and personable and really gets to know you as a couple so that she can make a wonderful video!She was also so flexible and willing to help us in the midst of plans changing in the midst of the pandemic, she really wanted what was best for us and made it happen. If you're thinking about wanting a video from your wedding I highly reccomend it, and if you do BOOK ELEPHANT MEMORIES!!

    Audrey, this is an amazing review! Thank you very much, this means the world to me! I enjoyed brainstorming with you so much, you brought such great ideas to me, it was difficult but I love challenges! I’m so happy I was able to help you in these difficult times with your wedding and I think everything turned out amazing...can’t wait to see you next year to celebrate your first anniversary and have the party that this beautiful union deserves. I’m so happy we still have another wonderful video together and I will get to see you again. Can’t wait!

  • Working with Elephant Memories was the greatest decision we made for our wedding. Our wedding plans had dramatically changed due to Covid19, and we were in desperate need to find a pathway that would allow us to share our special day with our loved ones that could not attend our wedding. Elephant Memories exceeded our expectations in every way. She created the most beautiful video that not only captured our wedding, but captured so many special moments throughout the day. It was worth every penny. If there was anything I would do over and over and over again when planning a wedding, it would be booking Elephant Memories. She was so intentional, kind, creative, and flexible throughout the entire process. She worked great alongside other vendors. She did excellent in maneuvering through our family beach house (last minute venue), and captured so many great memories. It has been a true joy to share our video with family and friends, and we have received nothing but high praises for the vi... Read more

I love to attract such beautiful people with my work, I want more Brides like you ;) Thanks to you and Lou for being so kind with me, being so open to all the ideas and for being so fun to work with. The photographer and I were having so much fun with you and it was super sweet in the middle of that crazy moment in the pandemic to see your beautiful love and how lucky you are to have those wonderful people around you...It was a perfect day! Thanks, Thanks Thabks! - Clarissa

    Kim! I loved it so much when you called me at the start of the pandemic to ask me to be your videographer for your elopement wedding. Being there with you brought me so much hope and happiness! We were smiling all day watching you in your cloud of love, it was a privilege to see your ceremony before all your loved ones and I'm happy that you had an amazing video to show them where they could be a witness of your brave decision of getting married no matter what! Cheers!

  • Clarissa gave us the most beautiful wedding video and pictures imaginable! Her editing pieced together footage from throughout our special day - from preparations, to the ceremony, to our first dance, and wedding toasts - such that the story it told left us in tears! And the photos captured the emotion of each moment remarkably! Thank you so much for the wonderful memoirs of our wedding! Te amamos mil gracias! The best wedding videographer in the world!

    It was amazing planning this elopement wedding with you guys, from your engagement through the wedding day, it was great to work with you. You weren't the only ones in tears with your wedding video, I cried too! Thanks for such special days together around Botany Bay and Edisto Beach! Can't wait to capture this new phase with your upcoming baby, such a blessing to have all this beautiful love around. We love you guys!

  • Elephant Memories services both Charleston, SC and Boston, MA. My husband and I had early discussions with Clarissa and Haley about our vision for our wedding video and Clarissa took all our feedback into consideration and also provided us with her own creative ideas to consider for our video. We wanted our video to be reminiscent of a sweet french love story, and Clarissa totally delivered on this and brought all our ideas to life! I also have to mention Clarissa's editing skills - it's movie quality!!! We purchased the Diamond package, which included a 1-minute teaser (perfect for sharing on IG), a 3-5 minute trailer (great for sharing with friends and family), and a 10-20 minute documentary. This package was totally worth the money, and we found Elephant Memories to be very reasonably priced compared to other Boston-based videographers (especially given the quality of work they deliver!) Clarissa and Haley were a pleasure to work with, and I would highly recommend them to any engage... Read more

    Awww Alyssa, Thanks for this wonderful review! I remember you booked us a year in advance and during that full year, we were exchanging ideas on IG and emails so literally we both were dreaming of the big day. It was a wonderful wedding and everything went beyond expectations. Thanks for always being super sweet with me, and being open to ideas. I think the fact that Greg works with video too was very special because you were very aware of how important life memories are. I really appreciate how much value you give my work and even during your day you made me feel special. I have the feeling our paths will cross again... I wish you all the best, you are amazing! Thanks! Thanks! Thanks!

  • I highly recommend Elephant Memories! I remember having such a hard time looking through videographers for our wedding - we knew we wanted one but we also knew that we were looking for more than just our wedding to be video taped and set to music with some basic editing. We wanted a video that had creativity, and really helped to tell our story. Elephant Memories did just that, and MORE! The creativity that they brought to the table was more than I could have ever dreamed of. More than just getting the "right shots", the editing that went into our video makes it over the top! Working with the team on the day of was easy - they make you feel so comfortable. We honestly could feel their passion for what they do throughout the whole day that they were with us and beyond. Here are my final recommendations for any bride to be: 1. If you are on the fence about wanting to hire a videographer and you can make ANY room in your budget: DO IT! I promise you that after all is said and done, you a... Read more

    Your wedding was such a blast to film! We loved every minute working with you all, thanks so much for taking the time to write about the experience of working with us, it means a lot to us! Thanks for trusting in me so much and for being open to have fun in the boat, we got amazing footage but also we laughed so much there, and that is what it’s all about, having fun on your wedding day! Can’t wait to follow what the next years bring to one of the most fun couples I know...wish you a life full of love and laughs

  • I highly recommend Elephant Memories! We had the pleasure of working with Haley and Clarissa. Clarissa did an outstanding job personalizing our video. We chose to go with the documentary style and I could not be more pleased with how it turned out! In addition to filming throughout our wedding, we had the opportunity to film separately at the location where we met; this was Clarissa's idea! Adding the extra footage added an even more romantic spark and truly captured our story as a couple. She pays very close attention to detail and genuinely cared about our vision as a couple. Not only were unforgettable moments captured, they were highlighted in such an artistic fashion that truly brought magic to our video. I highly recommend Elephant Memories!

    Christina and Matt, it was great to meet you. We are so thankful you chose us to make your video and nothing makes me happier than hearing you liked my artistic vision and style. I put so much love into my work and reading your review is always a great inspiration to keep working hard to be a custom video company... there’s nothing like the little details. You were wonderful with us and we had so much fun...I'll be so happy to see you again...cheers to you and Matt! Clarissa

  • Elephant Memories is an incredibly flexible, professional, and fun wedding videography company to work with. They were able to customize our final wedding video and make it something even more special than we could have hoped for! They make you feel comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera on your wedding day, which is especially important given how busy your wedding day can be! Would recommend to anyone looking for a wedding videographer.

    Nicole & Garrett, it was amazing to get to know you, and to share with your lovely family and friends. I'm thankful for all your attention to me, you made me feel right at home. Thanks for trusting in my creative ideas for your video, it was very fun working with you and hopefully I'll see you soon when I travel again to the beautiful area you live. A big Hug to you both!

  • I knew I wanted a videographer from day 1. The photos and videos captured from our day was one of our very top priorities. My husband wasn't entirely convinced we needed videography at first, but he went along with it, knowing I was unlikely to compromise on that point. So we started our search and very quickly knew we were looking for something different and we'd need to find an amazing person to see our vision. When we talked with Elephant Memories and started exchanging ideas, we knew Clarissa was the perfect match. By that time, we had reviewed what seemed like hundreds of wedding videos and when you watch them over and over, the typical wedding themes start to hit you over the head. It was everything we didn't want. I was crying through them all, and next to me my husband was often disengaged after the first 20 seconds. We both decided we wanted a more cinematography approach to our video. Something more commercially produced, maybe even out of order, but definitely telling a s... Read more

    Awww Stefanie! This review almost makes me cry, I have to hold my tears back because It touches me so much! Thanks for appreciating our work. we leave our heart with every project, I loved to work with you, for all the creative freedom you gave me, and I loved your vision for your video so I worked very hard to make your highlights something as unique as you both. it was great to get out of my comfort zone to make something very different. It was challenging but I love the final result! But enough about work, I just want to let you know that I truly loved to meet you and I was fortune to have the time for us to get to know each other better all those days we spent together. I hope to see you another time in this life and I wish you the best! A big hug for you and Thanks, Thanks and Thanks! Clarissa

  • Elephant Memories was an incredible vendor to work with in these uncertain times! Clarissa was so flexible with us in creating something special, that she did something she's never done before. Our destination wedding to SC was cancelled due to Covid-19, so we scrambled to plan something small and intimate at home. Clarissa took the footage from the small and intimate wedding, and shot some footage of us in SC to create an incredible video that beautifully tells our story. It turned out better than I could have imagined, and we couldn't be happier!!! If you're on the fence about hiring a videographer, I HIGHLY recommend it! Especially if you're considering working with Elephant Memories, you won't regret it! I can't wait to watch our video again on our anniversary while we share our wedding cake. The video captures so much more than any photographs can.

    responded with the following comments.

    How lucky am I to get tosee for the first time in the world your first dance? It was such an honor that even after your wedding cancellation here you still wanted me as your videographer, and travel from Ohio to Charleston for your honeymoon to have part of the wedding you could have here. I think a part of you got married here that day, I was the witness with my camera of course! Any person that sees the video will see that you got married twice! It was amazing to meet you, to talk about life, to see your first dance, thanks for being open to such an experimental and unique wedding video, I love it so much... sometimes crazy times bring amazing things...wish you all the best - Clarissa
