“When we talked with Braven, we could tell right away that he loved his craft, and that he was passionate in telling video stories. Braven showed genuine interest in the story of our engagement, and excitement in wanting to be part of our wedding day. When we showed our wedding video to our family and friends, their general responses were, ‘Woah ... this is produced?’, ‘OMG, it felt like watching a ‘real’ Hollywood media produced video.’ ‘Can we see it again? I loved it.’ ... done, drop the mic.”
“His film blew our expectations out of the water. It was high quality and very personal. He captured all the important moments.”
“They did a great job on the wedding film. Exactly what I wanted. There were no moments that I thought, ‘Man, I wish they would have gotten that on video.’ They got everything.”
“The moments were captured so well, better than I could have even imagined. My husband and I were shocked and love our video. Most of our friends have also seen it and love watching it because it captured so many memories and funny times for everyone.”
“He finished our video in about a week. We couldn’t believe how fast he delivered.”
“Braven also enabled us to keep all the bloopers and extra ‘b-roll’ footage that did not make the final cut.”
“Braven is extremely professional, was very active with us in our process, and made sure to communicate frequently.”
“Braven was very attentive to schedule. He walked the wedding site with us ahead of time and he arrived early to get extra footage for our video.”
“Like any good video team, they were invisible when they needed to be, and respectful and pleasant when they needed to be visible.”
“Braven stayed in our budget; he was very upfront with the expenses, and there were no hidden or extra charges after we committed to the agreed final cost.”
“He understands what people want to remember when looking back on their wedding day, and creates a beautiful film that you will be proud to share with family, friends, and look back on for the rest of your life.”

Questions and AnswersRead More Show Less
Why should we invest in a wedding film?The simple reason is because photos don't tell the full story. Photography is beautiful and an absolute must, but a video provides a more complete picture. With film, I am able to capture the sights, sounds and emotions of your special day in an unparalleled way. On that wonderful day when your loving guests travel from all over to join you in celebration; a culmination of your love and commitment to one another. Imagine being able to relive the passion and conviction between you and your loved one as you speak your carefully crafted vows to one another. I can always tell when a wedding film is truly special because I become emotional myself, and if I'm becoming emotional watching someone else's wedding, how much more precious and powerful will it be for you?
What makes you different from other videographers?Let's be honest, there are a lot of great videographers out there. They make amazing wedding films, have great gear, and tell amazing stories. The differences are subtle, but important. I am passionate about weddings, and my sole desire is for you to have a precious keepsake of your wedding day that you will want to watch over and over again. For that reason, I don't feel the need to throw myself into the mix. I don't put my logo at the beginning of your videos. I'm not out to self promote. The reason I do what I do is two-fold. First, I simply love to tell an amazing and beautiful story; I love the amazing feeling I get when an incredible wedding comes together. Second, I love the joy my couples and their families experience when they are able to watch the film for the first time. It simply can't be beat!
What kind of videos do you offer?We definitely have a preference when it comes to telling your wedding story. I believe every wedding is unique in it's own way, so why cut them all the same? To fully tell your story, our Cinematic Films generally last between 15 & 20 minutes. That may sound long, but it will absolutely keep you engaged the entire time. If you'd prefer a shorter highlight film of your wedding day, we also have 4-6 minute films.
Do you travel for weddings?We definitely travel for weddings. In fact, it's what we live for! It doesn't matter if it's a short flight away or on the other side of the globe; we're always up for new adventures. The destination weddings do vary on pricing depending on the distance. We begin charging for any distance over 80 miles from our location in Orange County.
Can we have our raw footage?Absolutely, and it is highly encouraged! Carver Weddings holds onto all of your footage for at least one year, but we believe you should hold onto it for life. It's your wedding, so we believe that you should have it all in its highest quality format: The Raw footage, the various audio sources, and even the project file are yours to have and keep.
What is your turnaround time?I am always going to try to amaze you with how fast you receive your wedding film, but I'm certainly not going to rush it. Editing a wedding film takes quite a bit more time than editing photos, and will generally be delivered within 1-3 months of your wedding date. The time difference fluctuates most notably by the business of wedding season.
