  • contracted with Lily Alayne Owen and her company Gardenhouse Films as photographer of my wedding on June 27th. I had paid $3,200 upfront as of 3/31/20. As the Carona Virus Pandemic grew, she began to contact me over moving my wedding date. What I was unaware of was that she was also contacting the DJ, Florist, and Venue (Whiteface club) and urged them to move my date to alternate dates. I was not sure how long the Virus pandemic would last and so, on 4/2/20 spoke with the Whiteface club event co-ordination (Kristin) about alternate dates. From the two date available, I selected 9/27/20 When I notified Lily (photographer), She said she could not do that date. She had also talked to the other vendors behind the scenes to convince them to say the same. Most importantly , She said that she would not refund the $3,200 I had given her to this point. I had not cancelled, nor could I control the effects of the Viral Pandemic that closed businesses nationwide. Since, I’ve also had to... Read more

  • Gardenhouse films did an incredible job on our wedding video as well as photos. They created a video that truly captured the essence of the day by capturing those special moments that we will have to remember for the rest of our lives. Loved working with Gardenhouse Films and I highly recommend them for your wedding or project.

  • Lily was amazing to work with! Early in the planning for our wedding, we were unsure if we wanted a videographer. We are SO happy we decided to go for it, and even happier that Lily was recommended to us. She is so talented and easy to work with - she instantly puts you at ease and blends in with the guests at your reception. You'll be amazed by what she captures, mainly because you won't notice her buzzing around throughout the night. She truly captured our day and gave us a beautiful video that we will cherish forever. We hope to work with Lily more in the future and highly recommend Gardenhouse Films for your wedding or event.

  • Lily was an absolute dream to work with! She did both an amazing engagement video and full wedding video for us. She took all the joy, love and fun times from entire day and was able to condense it into a 10 minute video. She captured everything perfectly! Lily also was a calming energy that every bride needs to have on the morning of their big day. I absolutely would and do recommend her to everyone I know looking for a wedding videographer.

    I love calming brides, it is my absolute favorite!! You guys were so much fun to spend the day with and everything looked so amazing. :) So happy for you to have a beautiful life together!! Can't wait to trash the dress !!!

  • Highly Recommend. Lily was the perfect videographer for our wedding. On the day of our wedding she caught all the right moments without us knowing she was there (which is good in this context). The end product is absolutely beautiful.

    Thank you so much Kevin!!! it was such a great day and we truly enjoyed being there with you all!! Thanks for having us!

  • Crazy enough, as much as I personally know the importance of video, I was trying to keep things 'simple' and didn't want a bunch of fanfare. I still stuck it out and had both video and photo and let me tell you, as funny as it might sound, I'd give up every photo we have of our wedding if it meant we could keep our video! It is that special, that perfect, and that important to us! Photos are amazing and beautiful, don't get me wrong, but the words spoken and the subtle movements made are small details that photo just cannot capture and are extra nuance that I treasure having! I cannot thank Gardenhouse Films enough for their professionalism, helpful approach, fast responses, attention to detail and general overall true care for our day. It was unmatched by any other vendor and we are eternally grateful! 100% hire her for your video and you'll experience just the same!

    It was my absolute pleasure to work with you both and to have watched your love unfold before and after. Your love is so inspiring and you are two amazing humans. I am so blessed to know you both. Thank you for the very kind words!

  • My biggest fear before hiring a Videographer, in general, was being concerned that I would regret seeing myself on camera. I'm not always a fan of myself in photos or videos and I wanted to be able to look back on our wedding day with happy memories, not feeling self-conscious. This could not have been further from the case when we watched our video from Gardenhouse Films! Lily and her team captured the most beautiful moments and designed them together in a way that was unlike any other wedding video that I've seen. We received so many compliments from our family and friends on the quality and uniqueness of our video, all thanks to Lily. She was able to capture the mood and feeling of our day - one that was filled with love and laughter! Lily was one of my favorite vendors to work with. We met her for coffee, along with our photographer (Joe Vogel), and you could instantly tell that she was committed to making it an experience we would enjoy and never forget. Lily would check in...

    I am sooooo glad we got to work together!! What a treat! And I am really happy that you liked the film and didn't feel self-conscious. I would feel that way too if I had to be on the other side of the camera!!!! :) You looked just beautiful!!

  • We worked specifically with Lily and she was wonderful! You could really see the passion she has for what she does and she did everything she could to make our wedding day so special. We were specifically looking for a videographer who had an organic feel and would capture each of the special little moment throughout the day, and Lily was there for all of them - Each of those moments shown through in our video. It was exactly what we had hoped for! Lily made sure that she was always available for a quick phone call and was great at responding to emails. In my opinion, a wedding video should show the true nature of a couple - Gardenhouse Films did exactly this! Anyone who watches our wedding video, whether they know us or not, would be able say that they felt like they were there that day and knew exactly what we were feeling. It was truly beautiful.

    The moment i knew i loved you as a couple, was when i entered the getting ready room to find Josh, eyes closed (essential blindfolded) getting you to give him a little face touch up without seeing you. The whole thing was one of the cutest, sweetest things I have ever seen. You are adorable together and I am so glad I got to be there. I will forever be more careful with tiny brides who might get spun a little too much on account of being lightweight. LOL Your special dances, with confetti, your wonderful family-- the whole thing was so much fun! Thank you for having us and I hope you have a long and happy life together!!

  • HIRE Lily! If she's not available on your date, move your wedding! (Just kidding!) Honestly, Gardenhouse Films was so accommodating and helpful in the planning and our video captured everything we wanted on our special day. Personally, I think mine has better editing (video and sound) than many others I've seen! If you want a professionally edited video at the right price to capture one of the most important days of your life, there is no one else, Gardenhouse Films is the best!!! Lily was so accommodating throughout the process, working with us on a custom package, and even offering unique ideas to overcome some issues with speeches. She was so understanding, available if we had any questions throughout the way, and got our video turned around in a timely manner. What's great is that we didn't even notice her throughout the reception and she somehow captured all the little moments we wanted! Her and her team are the best- very professional, friendly, all-star videographers, and I... Read more

  • Lily was a lot of fun to work with. She took the trouble to get to know us a little and really understand what we're about before the wedding. The day of was actually crazy--it rained, and she had to fight through traffic to get to us. But once there she rolled with it and was actually thrilled with the weather and the romantic cinematic effects it brought. She came with a lot of experience knowing what really works for a gorgeous wedding video. And the end result was KIND OF RIDICULOUS--we loved it.

    You guys are so awesome, and your wedding will always be one of my favorites. Your grit, resolve, and attachment to nature is an inspiration!! Thanks for having me!

  • My husband and I got married in June of 2018. Our photographer had recommended Gardenhouse Films as a videographer, and we are so glad she did! Lily was extremely responsive and flexible- she really worked with us to understand what we were looking for/wanted from our wedding video. She makes an effort to get to know you so that the video reflects some of your “personality” as a couple. Our video felt like us, was done so beautifully, and was exactly what we were hoping for. It is the perfect representation of our big day. Everyone loved our video as much as we do, and it’s something we will cherish and watch for years to come! Thank you Lily!

  • After falling in love with Lily’s cinematic style, hiring Gardenhouse Films was one decision that I was 100% confident in when planning my wedding! In hiring Lily, I knew that my video would be timeless, tasteful, and a beautifully artistic summary of our day to enjoy for years to come. One of my favorite parts of working with Gardenhouse Films was that Lily made sure to learn what my goals of hiring a videographer for my wedding day were. For me, it was to have a touchstone to help us relive the magic of the most important day of our lives and our video reflects these elements perfectly! Every time I recommend Gardenhouse Films, I always share my favorite moments from our film: reliving the butterflies I felt as I locked eyes with my husband waiting for me at the end of the aisle. Hearing my father say how proud he is of his little girl during his speech. Seeing my mothers beautiful, joyful smile as she entered the reception. Watching my husbands bottom lip quiver as we exc...
