ONE OF A KIND,
YOUR LOVE STORY IN MOTION
We take incredible time and care to artfully craft a unique and personal viewing experience in each film. We don't make films that feel like everyone else's, and that is done so intentionally.
Our typical turnaround time is three to four months, spending anywhere from 40 to 50 hours on editing,
color-grading, and visual effects that create that authentic, Laureland vibe.
THE FACTS BEHIND OUR FILMS
2021 WEDDING FILM
THOMAS + EMILY
We're super pumped to share this one! For those of you with headphones--Lauren stepped up her sound design game with this film in order to recreate all the anticipation, intensity, and ambiance from the day.
We've highlighted these high school sweethearts before, and we love to show them off! Emily and Thomas had a beautiful wedding day in Middleburg, Virginia on a peaceful farm venue. After ten years of growth and love, their friends and family were freaking PUMPED to cheer these two newlyweds on. The day was full of energy and smiles--and we could see why! Emily and Thomas are the kindest souls and truly deserved the best wedding day ever. We know life must feel a little sweeter for Thomas to call Emily his wife, and Emily to call Thomas her husband. TOO. CUTE.
2021 WEDDING SNEAK PEEK
KYLER + LINDSAY
What we really appreciated about Kyler and Lindsay’s wedding day was the intentionality and care behind every detail. Lindsay told me that when they started the planning process, they just asked each other, “How do we want to spend our wedding day?” And from that seemingly simple, but important question stemmed SO many unique and quirky elements in their design.
Every detail-- from the whimsical, wooden wedding arch to the hand-folded origami cranes that featured the guests seating assignments-- embodied their bright, free-spirited personalities and crafted an intimate experience for their guests. Anyone present that day knew that this event was just TOOOOTALLY Lindsay and Kyler! And that’s what made it so darn special.
2021 WEDDING FILM
SAMANTHA + LUKE
We quickly developed a great friendship with these two. By the time the wedding day came, they were so excited to welcome us into their world. In our little isolated pocket of the universe that day, we saw everyone vibing to the beat of Sam and Luke! From the pulsing dance floor (which Sam and Luke commandeered to sing the ENTIRE length of "Paradise by the Dashboard Lights" to each other) to the epic cigar bar where several generations were slapping backs and mingling, and, of course, the back and forth icing pranks that got not only the groom on one knee, but also one of their very unsuspecting guests 😆
And while the wedding was a BLAST, their story was also insane!! These high school sweethearts have been together for over a decade. They've been through college, medical school, and have moved to five different states together in just five years! Their guests were SOOO ready to celebrate their love 🥺😍
2020 ADVENTURE FILM
BLAKE + SLATON
We had THE best time filming these two at sunrise on their community beach. Their doggos really tried to steal the show, but the chemistry between these two is hard to beat. We initially met Blake and Slaton as they were planning their wedding, but COVID and some other events happened that put their wedding on hold. We were so glad they were still willing and available to work with us, because this was one of the most fun and rewarding experiences of 2020. Getting their reaction after we delivered this film reminded us why we do what we do. There's nothing quite like hearing the sheer excitement and appreciation from two people who feel seen and cared for. And that's all we've ever wanted to do for our couples.
2020 WEDDING FILM
BEN + KATELYN
Ben and Katelyn's day was full of laughter and smiles. After eight years of dating through school, pets, and careers, their friends and family were overjoyed to make their partnership "official" in marriage. The bridal party brought out all the stops for this couple! The groomsmen coordinated a group, pre-ceremony Fireball shot, while the girls planned a secret gift giving that would bring everyone in the room to tears. As Ben and Katelyn celebrated with their guests, there was undoubtedly an absence that could be felt throughout the day. Those in attendance honored Katelyn's dad by sharing happy memories of his big personality, and how proud he was to see Katelyn and Ben grow together.
