“For some of us, it takes awhile to fully articulate our thoughts and emotions. Sometimes we never seem to find the right words. But then, there are people that just get you. They help find your voice and express yourself in ways you never thought possible. That’s the magic of Velare. They listen, observe, and then craft a story that is perfectly you. So when Mart and I decided to elope in the mountains of Queenstown, we knew Velare was the one we wanted to document our story.

We could go on and on about Velare’s creative vision, cinematography talents, and editing skills, but that’s all apparent when viewing their films. The hidden gem to what Velare brings, is the experience. From day one, we felt like we were talking with an old friend. Even though we didn’t meet in person until a few days before the wedding, it felt like a reunion. During their stay with us, they were not only our cinematographer, but chauffeur, star gazing companions, wilderness wander, Lord of the Rings aficionado, and most importantly… friend. They elevated our wedding day into a truly epic experience. And now, we have an equally epic film to forever remember our adventures in beautiful Queenstown, New Zealand. Velare… we can’t thank you enough for being you, and setting the right environment for us to be us.”
