It all comes down to the story. Whether you know it or not, you have one, and it's amazing, if for no other reason than it's yours and yours alone! We let your unique personality shine through in your wedding film so that no two look the same. We like to imagine your great-grandkids watching your film decades from now - it may be the only way they know you! Pretty neat, if you ask me :)
We create wedding films in Victoria, but we love to travel! We're available all across Canada (and sometimes elsewhere...we love Paris...just saying...) and our travel fees are modest (especially if it's Paris...).
We've been called "wedding ninjas" before - our sneakiness lets us capture intimate moments, in a non-creepy way. We're easy going and helpful.
Aside from weddings, we often shoot for small businesses, non-profits, and families. You can see some of those films by clicking here!
I've been filming weddings for 9 years now, and I still cry at every ceremony. I love finding the unique story behind every wedding - looking past the pretty (although I do love the pretty!) to tell the story of two families combining. I've been told (numerous times) that I'm very sneaky. Sometimes that means climbing into a tree or bush to get the perfect shot (which is tricky, as I'm rather clumsy), but it also means I capture moments that otherwise go unnoticed. 3 loves and 1 un-love (in order): puns, cats, cheese, and eating noises.
The truth of it is that I fell into filming by accident; or rather, I got press-ganged into it. Chelsea and I had only been dating a little while, and one day she needed a second shooter to stand by a camera. From then on, I was hooked. We started filming more stuff together, and I started getting more training, and I loved it. Then we started filming weddings together, and I loved that too. Now, we’ve been together for 10 years, we’re married, and I officially love my job. My 3 loves? Snack time, hitting the perfect ball across the soccer pitch, and working with my wife. One un-love? Those little pull-tabs on juice containers. I can’t figure those out.
"As a photographer, I can't stress how great it is to work alongside a videographer who really values the experience of her clients and their guests. Many videographers I've worked with will do whatever they need to "get the shot", which sometimes means being a conspicuous distraction during an important and intimate day. Chelsea's quiet presence beautifully captures the feeling of the day without making her clients wonder how much of their day they need to sacrifice for a great video. Her sweet and warm demeanour is always a welcome addition to any wedding I've shot with her."

"Our wedding day was the most important, best day of our lives. To be able to have that day, those moments, captured for us to watch and look back on for days to come is something special. We don't know where to start about how amazing Chelsea and Scott were on our wedding day. They fit right in with our family, friends, and whole atmosphere of the wedding. From as soon as they arrived, Chelsea and Scott were instants friends who we were comfortable to be ourselves with. When we got our wedding preview video to share with our friends and family, we were speechless! Chelsea did an amazing job putting our wedding into an epic 4min video. We have lost count of the amount of times we have watched it! All of our friends and family cried being able to re-live such an amazing day. Even the song Chelsea picked for us summed up the feel of the wedding perfectly. We really can't say enough great things about Chelsea. She's someone who we will now always have a connection with and who is a great new friend! We can't thank you enough!"

“I have had the lovely opportunity over the past few years to get to know Chelsea & Bryan, through the wedding community here in Victoria. After working on numerous projects & weddings together, I was so excited to finally be able to have them leave their mark on my own brand. Knowing that I wanted a video that truly captured the spirit of FKE and my passion for weddings, I knew that Paper Heart Films would be the perfect fit. Working together throughout the planning for the video and the actual filming was so much fun, and I couldn’t be happier with the result! It’s obvious that they really listened to what I hoped to achieve out of it, and I feel like any prospective clients watching my video, will instantly get a better sense of who I am and what FKE is all about! Thank you so much you guys, for all of your hard work, and for creating something that is perfectly me!"

"I've had the opportunity to work with Chelsea on many occasions. Each time, I've been impressed with her calm and cheerful nature. I instantly feel at ease with her. I'm also impressed with her thorough planning and attention to detail. She has a keen eye for telling a beautiful wedding day story in a beautiful way. Chelsea is a joy to be around. I love working with her."

"When we were planning our wedding, we weren't sure if we wanted to invest in videography. We came across the Paper Heart Films website and were totally impressed by their work. After meeting with Chelsea, we knew it was the right fit. Right from the beginning, she was so interested in what we envisioned for our wedding and had lots of great questions for us (things we never thought about before!). On our wedding day, Chelsea and her partner Bryan were organized, positive, and professional. They just knew what to do! In the end, we were thoroughly pleased with the final product. Chelsea and Bryan were able to capture every special moment, and most importantly, they were able to piece things together in a beautiful highlight film. Anyone looking for a reliable and talented team of wedding videographers should definitely consider Paper Heart Films!
"We had such a fantastic experience with Paper Heart films and are absolutely thrilled with our video. The moments that Paper Heart films captured for us are amazing and they managed to do it in a way that was completely unobtrusive. Chelsea made us feel completely relaxed right from the beginning when we met with her for our consultation. Chelsea really got to know us as a couple and her calm and sweet demeanor was exactly what was needed on the wedding day.
What we love about Paper Heart films is that each of their videos is completely unique,and each one is special. After watching a Paper Heart video you feel like you know the couple, and their story. Our Paper Heart Film is something we will treasure forever."
