Our Vision

Elise Films is a southern California-based video production business, who specializes in creating cinematic short-form films.

We are a group of artists who believe everyone has a story to tell. Whether this story be a baby shower, birthday party, or a wedding, we seek to encapsulate those special moments to be enjoyed and shared for ages to come. Our goal, as visual motion artists, is to capture your event with beautiful spoken words and captivating imagery through the use of cinematic techniques and tools.

Our business began its roots in creating short-form films of various family events and has grown to specialize in filming weddings. If you have a special day that you want a keepsake of on film, we would love to chat with you.

Happiness is anyone and anything at all, that’s loved by you.

Charlie Brown

And think not that you can direct the course of love, for love, if it finds you worthy, directs your course.

Khalil Gibran

Love is a canvas furnished by nature and embroidered by imagination.


I love you. You annoy me more than I ever thought possible, but… I want to spend every irritating minute with you.


When you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible.

When Harry Met Sally

True love stories never have endings

Richard Bach

I don’t wish to be everything to everyone, but I would like to be something to someone.


Love is friendship set to music.


We love because it’s the only true adventure.
