This is where we began. Weddings. Weddings will always be a part of our business and will always have a soft spot in our hearts. There is so much content in this single day. So much emotion and story. The best part of it all… it’s all REAL and Uncontrollable emotion.
A bride and groom are so vulnerable that day. They are not even sure if they will be nervous, excited, ecstatic, or emotional. And we love that! Documenting an unpredictable story of love and celebration fuels us with passion.
It all starts with you. Not a generic ‘you’ that is swallowed by all of the details of your wedding, but rather the real ‘you’ that has come to this point because you have been so moved by another. We want to discover all of the little things that make you who you are. What excites you? what do you dream about? Where you met? How you Met? Of course the little details you put in to this day matter, but with out you and your story, we wouldn’t even be here.
While discovering all of these little things that brought you together, we become inspired. Inspired to tell not only ‘a story’ but to tell ‘your story’. We take what we know on the technical side of filming and editing and present a story that is unique to you.
When you look back at your wedding film, you get to experience the best day of your life all over again. Hear the voice of the one you love most from that day. Feel and see the ambience. See all the little details in movement. You get thrown back in to all the feelings and nerves that you felt that very day.
What Our Customers Are Saying
Don’t just take it from us, let our customers do the talking!
“My wife and I are from Pittsburgh and decided on a wedding in Arizona. We knew we wanted a quality video of our special day to show friends and family back home. My wife’s makeup artist, Ashley, recommend her husband Ryan. After watching just one video, we had to watch all the others. We knew we had found our videographer. We reached out to Ryan and to say he was accommodating and easy to work with is an understatement. Since our wedding was a small destination wedding and unlike your typical wedding, we explained via email/telephone what we were looking for. The day of our wedding was no different then the months leading up to it; very communicative, professional and engaging. Ryan spent time going over what we wanted and explaining what he needed from us. During the ceremony we never even noticed him as he captured every moment of our wedding exactly how we had envisioned it. He was also more then willing to stay until we were satisfied that he shot all the footage that we wanted. We received our highlight video less then a week after our wedding as we were on our honeymoon. Needless to say, there isn’t a thing we would change about it. The footage, audio, editing, artistic style; it was all perfect. We were so impressed by the highlights video that we asked if he could provide us with our entire ceremony. A week later, we received an edited version of our ceremony set to light music. Overall, my wife and I can’t stress enough our extreme pleasure with the entire experience. Thank you Ryan!! – The Noonan’s”
I spent a great deal of time looking up wedding videographers in the Phoenix areas. I went through every single videographer on the weddingwire list and emailed roughly 50 of them for a quote if I enjoyed their videos/website. I wish I would have found Ryan’s website earlier on the list because I would have stopped looking pretty quickly if I did. With the quality of his videos, I would have thought the cost of his work was much much more than the actual price. He’s quick to respond, efficient, and very easy to work with regarding payment and contract.
During the wedding day he worked efficiently and absolutely did not get in the way. He worked well with the photographer and it was an enjoyable experience overall. We just got our highlight video and absolutely love it. We told him the style that we wanted (romantic, not funny) and he nailed it. We can’t wait to see our full length video. Thanks so much Ryan!

We really wanted to book a videographer for our big day next June- and as soon as I found Ryan Blake Films I knew it was the one! His work on his facebook page of his recent wedding short videos make me tear up, and I don’t even know the couples! haha. He has been so professional and prompt in his email responses (we are having a complete destination wedding). He is even traveling for our venue in Colorado! We are so excited to work with Ryan and can’t wait for 6/17/2017!! 🙂
WHAT IS A WEDDING TRAILER/HIGHLIGHT FILM?
This is mostly what you see on our websiteIt is a 3-6 minute “highlight” film that tells the story of your day. It is the perfect length for sharing with friends and family online and on your favorite mobile device. All films shown on our blog and website are Short Films.
WHAT IS A FEATURE FILM?
It is a 10-15 minute film that incorporates elements from getting ready, your ceremony, and your reception. It is a longer form piece that has more of a documentary style. Every wedding is different and unique making every feature film we make different. You can browse through our FILM portfolio to find some samples of past feature films.
WILL YOU TELL US WHAT TO DO, HOW TO ACT, OR DIRECT US ON OUR WEDDING DAY?
In short, no! If you’re hiring us, its because you appreciate the genuine emotion and documented moments in our films. There is no need for us to recreate scenes. Trust us, there is PLENTY of raw beauty and emotion on your wedding day to create a cinematic film! That said, the quality of our films also depends on good light, so if you’re getting dressed in the dark, we may ask you to move to a lighter area of the room, open the blinds, etc.
DO YOU TRAVEL?
You bet we do! …In fact, we LOVE to travel for weddings. In fact, we are filming weddings in California, and Colorado! We will go anywhere! There is a fee for travel depending on where your wedding is. Email us for details
