  • As a Covid-affected bride, replanning my elopement after having to cancel my wedding was both mentally and emotionally exhausting. At the top of my list, however, was finding a videographer that would be able to capture the perseverance and resiliency our love has during difficult times. I researched about 20 videographers and watched hundreds of videos, before coming across Elephant Memories. As soon as I watched a couple of Clarissa's wedding videos, I knew she was perfect for my vision of a Love Story Movie. She was very professional and friendly from our very first emails to finally meeting on the day of the wedding. I felt like I had known her for years! She made us feel extremely comfortable on our wedding day and worked SO hard to capture every single moment with expertise and natural skill. She was so much fun to work with and paired so magically with our photographer that you would have thought they worked together many times before even though this was the first time. She di...

  • 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!

  • Clarissa was incredible! I can’t recommend her highly enough. We originally had not planned to have a wedding videographer, but after having to postpone our wedding due to Covid, and knowing that so many of our friends and family would no longer be able to attend, we decided to add on a videographer to help document the day for those who couldn’t be there in person. I’m SO glad we did! Clarissa created a beautiful video that absolutely captured the spirit of our wedding and the spirit of the city where we fell in love. I have watched the video over and over and it makes me so happy every single time. It’s like being able to relive all the perfect moments again. Clarissa made the whole process so easy for us. She is an absolute pro! She was flexible with our needs and helped create the perfect package for us. Her footage is absolutely stunning; it should honestly be a marketing video for Charleston. She created a priceless keepsake for us that we will cherish for many years to c... Read more

  • Elephant Memories was the best choice we made for our wedding. Clarissa was wonderful to work with from start to finish. Her video's are incredible and we love absolutely everything about our wedding video. She made everyone completely relaxed and made the process fun as well. I am shy to begin with, but I felt completely comfortable working with her. Everyone absolutely loves our wedding video and we do too! Thank you Elephant Memories!

  • Clarissa was such a joy to work with! She was professional, responsive and organized throughout the entire process. Pre wedding, she sent us a questionnaire and multiple samples to get a feel for our style prior to our big day! The day of the wedding she was punctual and made us feel so comfortable while capturing our special moments. The end product was more than we could have imagined! My husband and I were very pleased with the teaser and highlights video she created for us. It brought back so many memories from a beautiful, blessed day! We have footage of our family and friends that we will cherish for years to come. We recommend Elephant Memories for anyone looking for quality, talent and professionalism when it comes to capturing your most precious and unforgettable memories.

  • Clarissa from Elephant Memories is an absolute gem! From the first time meeting her I knew she loved her job as a vidographer and if you see her work you just know!! I was the mother of the bride, a great honor for sure! Clarissa captured the most beautiful moments that were shared between me and my daughter. Definitely brought on the water works. My son did the first look with my daughter- his sister and she caught every single second of that beautiful moment! As I am typing all of this out, it brings tears to my eyes that Clarissa felt what we were feeling in that moment on my daughters wedding day and captured it! Clarissa has done a few videos for Teagan and Bryce that are more than perfect. I even had a friend ask if there were academy awards for wedding videos because theirs would win.... Clarissa puts her heart and soul into every video she makes and keeps in close contact with the bride all the way through... She truly becomes a part of your family!

  • There are no words are actions to describe how happy and thankful we are that Clarissa from Elephant Memories was our videographer for our wedding. I had a very specific vision for my video. I needed it to have a certain feel and emotion when it was watched. And OH MY GOSH did Clarissa not only deliver exactly everything we wanted in a video, she completely customized every single detail with love and completely out did herself!!! She gave advise and even threw some new ideas at us that we completely fell in love with. And as a bride you already have so many things to choose and all you’re really looking for are ideas from your vendors that you are obsessed with and make your vision even more amazing!!! Our video is more than we could have ever dreamed of because of Elephant Memories. Thank you a million times over and over again. You are the absolute best!

  • 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!!

  • 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

  • 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

    You are the sweetest! This review motivated me a lot, it really inspires me because it’s a joy that you can see all the love that I gave your wedding video. 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

  • Elephant Memories went above and beyond any expectations! Every time we watch our wedding video we feel the same emotion we did on our wedding day and that is something that we will cherish forever! Clarissa is so sweet and so easy to work with. Not one moment was missed and her creativity and uniqueness truly made our video so special. She not only creates amazing videos but she also took the time to really get to know us and our personalities and that is why we would 100% recommend her and her work. Our video doesn’t just spark the memories of our wedding day but it sparks the memories of us and our story.

    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!

  • 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.

    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
