Latest Work

Creating stunning visuals that are timeless.

 
Classic City Films was formed in 2012 by Chris Elm and Chris Perry. The idea started as producing short form media which slowly branched out into event videography and cinematic marketing.
Our main goal is to capture moments and create stunning visuals that are timeless and that can be cherished by those who wish to relive those events time and time again. We believe in the candid moments, capturing them organically and in real time so they evoke the same emotions long after the event has passed.
 
 

Photography

photos and video go hand in hand

We love photos too! We each have completely different photography styles; one being landscapes, and the other, portraits. On shoots we typically carry a secondary camera for social media and video thumbnails - it's a distinct way for us to capture a moment, while staying true to ourselves.

Inspirations

it can strike anywhere

Like any aspiring filmmaker, movies inspired us to get into film, specifically behind the scenes. It's a way for the people that make the movies to be in the spotlight. The idea of filming something so that it can last a lifetime is incredibly inspiring to us. 

Collaboration 

working with others is key

We truly appreciate building bonds with others. One of our favorite aspects of working with our clients is the relationship we get to develop beyond the project itself. We handle each shoot with the utmost professionalism and establish a unique and genuine connection with each person we encounter.  

Our Style

we like to think we have a look

When it comes to weddings, we like to be "flies on the wall." Instead of staging things to happen, we want you to look back at your wedding day exactly as it unfolded.  We often capture moments that you didn't notice or realize you would want filmed. Of course we have spontaneous, "stand over here, this will look amazing!" moments but for the most part we prefer to let it happen organically. That way, when you press play, it feels authentic and real. 

When you need just a bit more.

Pricing

Why so much?

We put a lot of work into each wedding video we make, you're not paying for a couple guys with a camera and a tripod, you're paying for a cinematic documentary of your wedding with creative and captivating footage. We firmly believe you will look back at your purchase and not regret a single penny. 

The majority of the work and the magic happens in the editing. Each wedding video is unique and has hours of footage to go through. Deciding which shot comes next is a balance between composition and what's occurring within the shot. It is our goal and mission to leave each of our customers in awe of what they are watching. Not because of the amazing shots, but what's happening in them. 

Wedding Packages

We have 4 main packages. Our starting price is $800. Our average investment is $2750.

  • Classic Mini:
    Up to 2 Minute cinematic highlight of the first look/couple portraits, key moments of the ceremony, and a closing shot. Think of this package as a unique way to showcase you and your new husband/wife on the happiest day of your lives. The style of this video is like a short trailer, perfect for the couple that doesn't want to have their entire wedding day filmed.
  • Classic Highlight:
    3-5 Minute cinematic highlight of your entire wedding day. This package is designed to tell the story exclusively through visuals. The Classic Highlight is a great way to capture the entire wedding day in a short format that can be shared with family and friends.
  • Classic Short:
    5-7 Minute cinematic highlight of your entire wedding day with integrated audio of the wedding ceremony and/or toasts. Not only does the music guide the video, but your favorite parts of the ceremony and toasts add a whole new layer that can't be found without them.
