Southern California, will travel
Couture Motion does exactly what their company name suggests—they handcraft stylish wedding films suited to the specific idiosyncrasies of each couple they work with. They’re a husband and wife team with an extensive background both in front of the camera and behind the scenes. Ian holds an MFA in Film from Columbia University and Megan’s an accomplished actress, dancer and photographer. They draw upon this background to create wedding films that not only capture the events of the day, but also the raw emotions and experiences of the bride and groom.
They accomplish this through the use of film-style cameras and lenses, professional editing, color correction and audio mixing like you’d find in a Hollywood movie. What makes their films different is their honest way of portraying the couple’s story—with not only breathtaking style, but also real substance. They are intent on fostering a fun, comfortable atmosphere during the wedding so their couples can relax, be themselves and be in the moment.
Collections start at $3000.
Certified By The Guide Reviews(What does this mean?)
“Amazing. All of it was amazing. They made our story in to a piece of art that I will watch again and again. This is not your typical wedding video that gets dusty and you pull out every couple of years on your anniversary. I think we will watch it multiple times a year because of how wonderfully crafted it is.”
“I loved every minute of our film and loved everything about it.”
“The quality of film is outstanding, both sound and picture. I would put my wedding videos up against anyone’s knowing that it would win out in quality.”
“Megan and Ian are two of the most genuine, fun, caring people that I have ever met. They were so lovely during the whole process that when it came to the big day, I did not have any concern about how the film would turn out.”
“It just seems like they have such a passion for each and every wedding they film…and they put so much thought into truly capturing the feel and emotion of the day.”
“The wedding video made me feel like a movie star, it wasn’t just a video of our wedding it is like having a movie of our day.”
“They cater to your specific needs, wants, and personal style as a couple!”
“We loved them. They were so professional, fun, encouraging, supportive, and understanding that it felt like we were old friends.”
“Megan and Ian pour their heart and souls into each film.”
“The video was the best part of our wedding, and I almost didn’t even hire a videographer! I’m so glad I did and can’t imagine not having them for my wedding.”
“I have been raving about them since the day I met them. They were worth every penny and I feel like I gained two friends. What more can a gal ask for?”

Tell us about your company name. We chose the name Couture Motion because all of our films are specifically tailored to each of our clients, much like a couture garment. No two films are alike.
Why should someone hire you? Our films tell the complete story of your wedding day—from the opening nerves to the closing sighs.

What are some sources of inspiration or influences on your work? We are genuinely inspired by life and the common experiences that we all share. To be witnesses to one of the defining days in each individual's life is humbling and fascinating. Capturing these moments consistently inspires us.
