"Was truly an amazing experience"

Sean + Hannah

"Wow!! That's the first word that came to our mind after we got our footage back from the team at Kindred Canvas. Their wide variety of music choices made it hard to just select 2 but they really fit the overall vibe we were going for. The team truly captured such an amazing day from the raw footage, the ceremony and toast reels and the amazing highlight reel. Was truly an amazing experience and would recommend them for anyone getting married or need a special event videographer in the southern California! Thank you Kindred Canvas team!!"

"everything was simple and straightforward"

Nathan + Jasmin

"My husband and I were at a loss for words when we first viewed our wedding highlight video. Kindred Canvas knew how to capture our big day in such a beautiful way that brought back all those special emotions. We are so proud to show our wedding film. They are such a professional company with an amazing creative team. Luke and Elisabeth were also so prompt to respond to any of our questions and concerns from the get go; especially during this ever changing situation with the pandemic. They proved to be on our team, making sure everything was simple and straightforward.. so we could focus on just enjoying our wedding day. I am definitely recommending them to all our friends and family that have wedding dates coming up."

"will recommend to all our friends and family"

Jack + Blair

"My husband and I hired White Elm Films to shoot our wedding in early June. Honestly, wedding videography was low on our priority list. The main reason we did it was because we heard from so many friends and family that either they regret not having video or that the video is their favorite memory. But it wasn’t something that we wanted to prioritize financially. Enter White Elm Films. I loved the bright and clean style of their films and when we saw their affordable pricing compared to other videographers, we were ready to book! Their business model is different from private individual videographers. Because they have a network of videographers, you don’t actually know who is going to show up on your wedding day. But that is what allows them to keep their prices so affordable, they can book multiple weddings in multiple locations on the same day! We weren’t terribly concerned that we had never met or spoken to the videographers who would be at our wedding, but let me assure you that if you are concerned, there is no reason. The videographers who came to our wedding were AMAZING! They were on time, professional, and so much fun. My husband and I do not like being the center of attention and are not comfortable in front of the camera. Having two photographers and two videographers follow us around all day is not something we would typically enjoy. But they made the environment so relaxed and fun. And obviously most importantly, our video is so beautiful and we're so glad we hired White Elm Films!"

"communicative, professional, and truly cared"

Taylor + Tal

"Kindred Canvas did an incredible job implementing the vision that my husband and I requested for our highlights film!! We asked for a more natural and low key video, without the extra pan-outs and musical editing. What the team produced was just that, and more: an elegant, professionally-edited and moving film that captured all the right moments of our wedding day! It included impressive drone footage of the family home and yard where we got married. The two videographers who worked our wedding were friendly, warm, and attentive to our needs. The Kindred Canvas team is communicative, professional, and truly cared about producing a beautiful record of our wedding day. Thank you for everything!!”

"The videos were absolutely beautiful and timeless"

Scott + Ana

"My husband and I selected Kindred Canvas for their timeless-style videos and affordable prices. We are so glad we did. Luke, Elisabeth, and the Kindred Canvas team were such a pleasure to work with. You can tell they are professionals through their streamlined process and easy communication portal. We felt secure that they would capture our special day perfectly. Our friendly shooters arrived at our wedding on time; they were very professional. My husband and I felt comfortable and the shots were natural. They produced all the videos, including the highlights, ceremony, and speeches, in approximately four months. Holly updated us as they continued to work on our videos. The videos were absolutely beautiful and timeless -- it had a great mix of intimate, romantic scenes juxtaposed with touching soundbites and dynamic dancing scenes. It was perfect! All in all, I highly recommend working with Kindred Canvas for a stress-free day. Thank you Elisabeth and Luke!"

"We can't give them higher praise"

"We found White Elm films on the Knot and it was the best decision we made. From start to finish it was such a smooth and easy process. They helped us out along the way with not just our wedding video but with tips and suggestions for other vendors. Even on the day they stuck to the timetable and worked so well with our photographer. Our wedding video is beautiful and we are so impressed. We highly recommend White Elm Films. We can't give them higher praise. Thank you so much.”

"incredibly flexible and empathetic to our needs"

Robert + Britney

"We'll start off by saying that Kindred Canvas is absolutely extraordinary and you should check out their stunning work right now. It's very budget-friendly in these times of ever-increasing costs and the whole team was just great to work with. Me and my wife were so nervous about giving the team good shots to film and how everything would work, but they were largely quiet observers who popped in every now and then to prompt us for different shots. They operate by employing many camera operators across the country, and I felt like the crew we got was very professional, kind, and experienced with shooting weddings to know what shots would work great. So as they said to us, there was nothing to worry about at all. Our final video was just hands-down incredible and more than what we could've ever asked for. It was color graded real nice and captured a lot of the feel we wanted (shots of the venue, details of the decorations, lots of family and friends, a sense of us as a couple, our silliness, our warmth, and our request not to feel too "over-produced" while still looking professional and pretty). They have such a large library of songs too and the one they landed on was just perfect for our highlight video. We even requested an edit to swap out something and they did a wonderful job doing that while still capturing the feel. We felt so taken care of throughout the whole event and even when we had to switch the day of filming to another day (due to a venue issue), Kindred Canvas had our back and was incredibly flexible and empathetic to our needs. I could go prattling on about how good it was to work with the entire team, but you should experience it yourself by giving them a shot. If you're anything like us, it'll wow you and you won't regret it."

"consistent and reliable"

Adrian + Stephanie

"I just got my wedding video back from Kindred Canvas and it made me cry! It was so nice to be able to relive my wedding day through the video. It filled me with so much joy. I got the package that came with the ceremony film as well and I’m glad that I did because it was nice to rewatch it since it went by so fast on the actual day. White Elm Films is consistent and reliable and once you choose to hire them you don’t really have to worry about! Thanks Kindred Canvas for capturing all the best moments of the best day of my life!"

"very kind and professional and were lovely to work with"

Joshua + Kristina

"The videographers they sent to our wedding were great! They were very kind and professional and were lovely to work with. They came right when we expected them and followed the lead of the photographer. It was so easy to work with this company because of how efficiently they communicated. We were able to chat with Elisabeth about what we wanted from the wedding video in terms of style and music. I was able to outline all the important events that I wanted captured so the videographers that were sent that day could record them and even choose the songs we wanted to capture the essence of our wedding. We can’t wait to receive recordings of the ceremony, speeches, and video from them soon!"

"professionally composed shots, while being affordable and efficient"

Brian + Amy

"We had a great time working with Kindred Canvas! For context, my husband and I wanted genuine shots and raw emotions captured at an affordable price. Given the rising costs of all things wedding-related, we initially wanted to pass on a videographer. At the last minute, we decided to search for someone ~1.5 months out from our wedding. The team immediately initiated a call where we talked through things efficiently and had all our questions answered in 15 minutes. Additionally, Kindred Canvas even surprised us by editing a separate 12-minute video of our cultural tea ceremony, free of charge! I'd say if you're looking for a videographer that captures genuine, real emotions (without getting in your way/making you feel awkward), with professionally composed shots, while being affordable and efficient all in one -- try them out!"

"Would choose White Elm Films over and over again"

Jorge + Blair

"I couldn't say more amazing things about this company. From the first call we had discussing all the details and answering all the questions I had. To the day of professionalism and communication! All the way to getting our amazing video in a timely manor. Would choose Kindred Canvas over and over again!"

"it’s all worth it and then some"

Erwin + Sneha

"Kindred Canvas did a stunning job capturing the beauty and poignancy of our special day! We especially loved every second of the highlight reel — as did our friends and family. Simply lovely work! They do a very comprehensive intake of your preferences and wedding day timeline ahead of the wedding — it’s all worth it and then some! Book them."
