Behind the Lens with Christian Ellis Images

Anthony Beauchamp’s journey into wedding videography was not your typical “passion from an early age” kind of experience. He began working in the Air Force at 17 as an avionics technician before getting a college degree in psychology, assisting the elderly as a case worker for the Department of Health and Human Services, and eventually working as a production assistant. That’s when he fell in love with video.

With an eye on getting into the industry, Anthony took his many different experiences from over the years and established Christian Ellis Images. I took a minute to chat with him about the business.

How did the company start out? Our company’s creation was the culmination of a sequence of many fortunate, serendipitous events. Looking for my place in the field [of videography], I began Christian Ellis Images and took any job I could find. After all, “oatmeal is better than no meal.” In the world of videography, weddings are usually a starting point. However, after completing my first wedding, I completely fell in love with them. With most wedding photographers and videographers, there is usually an innate passion from very early in life. For me, it was talent that found me and developed without me realizing: Working on aircraft satisfied the technical faculties, but was too technical; working with the elderly satisfied my emotional faculties, but was too emotional. There was a moment of clarity when I received my first job as a camera operator for a reality show sizzle reel; I understood the freedom of creativity and emotional satisfaction that could only be found in creating wedding videos.

What are your wedding packages? Our wedding videography packages begin with our Bridal Package ($899). The bride receives four hours of coverage, a USB for Smart TVs, an online portfolio, and 45 to 90 minutes of chaptered events from the wedding day (grooms wear a wireless mic so vows are heard clearly). The next package is the Bridal Chic Package ($1,199), including everything in the Bridal Package plus a 3- to 5-minute highlight film (our pride and joy production). After that, we have the Bridal Elegance Package ($1,599), including everything in the Bridal and Bridal Chic packages along with an additional camera operator to have multiple angles and video opportunities.

Beginning in 2016, we now offer a marriage investment opportunity. A Bridal Engagement ($799) video is available for sharing on social media to announce the day or to be displayed during cocktail hours as an event. A “Where Are They Now?” anniversary video ($799) can be done annually and serves as a keepsake or marriage update for sharing on social media. And finally, the Bridal Extravagance Package includes everything in Bridal Elegance Package, plus a Bridal Engagement and Where Are They Now video ($2,799, a $400 discount).

What is the inspiration behind your work? Our inspiration is deeply embedded with our company philosophy: We are invited to your wedding! Yes, we are professionals, but this work involves the bride sharing with us very personal, special moments. Put simply, we are concerned with getting the shot and will get it, but we are more concerned with creating good memories for the bride on her special day. In short, our inspiration is building a strong relationship with the couple.

What is the favorite part of your job? Watching the highlight video after our couples have expressed how much they love them; it gives us an opportunity to watch the video again through our couples’ eyes and share their joy!

What makes Christian Ellis Images unique? The owner of the company is behind the camera at every wedding. We don’t book as many weddings as possible or have multiple weddings the same day. We believe weddings are emotional, joy-filled occasions and that quality is far superior to quantity. We deeply enjoy sharing the day with you. We cherish and honor your wedding day and are genuinely hoping for the success of your marriage.
