“You raise the bar for what they’re expecting. And, it’s always better than they imagined.”
“I say, the smartest thing we did that day besides marry each other was hire Cord 3 Films.”
We don’t ever want to recommend anything to any of our couples that we wouldn’t want to get ourselves. And we would hands down…”
They truly understand what it means to capture love on film.”
Cord 3 Films is a professional, creative, and fun team! They truly understand what it means to capture love on film. My husband and I have been MORE than blown away with the end results.
“The way they capture weddings is like nothing I’ve ever seen before.”
“It really allowed us to be natural and just go about our day as if no one was behind a camera shooting us all day.”
“They sit atop my personal list of recommended vendors…”
“I have had the pleasure to work with Cord 3 Films a few times now, and it always has been a treat. As a creative, professional photographer, I find it is really important to work with other people on the wedding day team who are also creative and appreciative of the artistic process. More so then any other vendors on the wedding day, photography and cinema go hand and hand. They must work as a balancing act to ensure each person is not in the way of the other. They work to keep a flow, a balance, and a vision for the wedding, all while at the same time having a ton of fun with the couple. When working with this team, our goals are always accomplished. Our styles mesh perfectly. Glen, Violet and their team have always been a pleasure to work with. The pace of a wedding can often be stressful. It is a breath of fresh air to know that you have another vendor working with you, that possesses the same high level of quality and customer service that you do. They get what a wedding is all about…. the couple!
I would have no hesitation in recommending this team for your wedding. In fact, they sit atop my personal list of recommended vendors that I offer to my bride and grooms. These are not your parents 14 hour wedding films of the past that your guests pray you won’t pull out at the get togethers. This is an epic cinematic approach that you are going to want to see time and time again. It is well worth the investment! I look forward to working with this team again in the future.”
“It’s not posed. It’s not set up. It’s how the day happened. And that’s what you really want..”
They were, “someone that I felt comfortable with instantly.”
“You were a pleasure to work with from the very beginning…”
“I was definitely a little nervous about seeing myself on video. I’ve seen some where I am just uncomfortable and awkward. You guys were great! The majority of the time, I was unaware that you were taking video which allowed me to be comfortable and myself. You were a pleasure to work with from the very beginning, to the wedding day and after. We would recommend you in a heartbeat. From the beginning, I had decided not to have a videographer to try to save some money. But then, Joe brought home a copy of his coworker’s sons video you did and my mind was changed. I never thought twice about it after that. I am so glad that we have this memory of our day and am even happier that you are the ones who created it.”
“I think the thought going in was let’s take care of what’s a permanent record of the day. That’s really what the video and the pictures become.”
“Once you decide you want the best video team there is, call Cord 3 Films, their work is like art and I couldn’t have imagined having anything less.”
“The funny thing is that we weren’t even planning on having a videographer for our fast- approaching wedding. Three weeks before the big day, I told my now-husband that we were spending too much money on the wedding not to have it documented in video. On the shyer side, he was worried about being able to act natural with obtrusive cameras in our faces. I was worried about missing the opportunity to one day share the video with our children and have a memento of all our friends and family in attendance. Thanks to Cord 3 Films, we didn’t have to worry about any of those concerns.
Glen and his team were sincerely a pleasure to work with from start to finish. They were available for my short-notice wedding date, which was truly a blessing and a benefit of having a winter event. We had a helpful conversation, where Glen assured me that my husband’s concerns of intruding cameras, etc. would not be an issue at all and discussed timing and logistics. The morning of, Cord 3 Films arrived at my house on time and got to work. Throughout the day, I barely noticed they were there, but when I did they were always courteous and beyond professional. They thanked me at the end of the night, when here I am thinking they are like rock stars at my wedding, after seeing all of his amazing previous work showcased online.
We were so excited when we got our “wedding trailer”! I am in advertising and appreciate good film and was just in love with all of Cord 3 Films previous work – but ours was beyond what I could have ever imagined. We just love it. Being able to post it on Facebook and email to friends and family who weren’t able to make it was awesome. We got Facebook comments on the video like, “If this is the trailer, I want to see the movie! We are in awe of this – really, it is fantastic!”, “This is so gorgeous – I’m really impressed!”, “This is like a major motion picture! So amazing!” and “I’ve never seen a video like this – so beautiful!”
But it is the full-length video that we couldn’t imagine living without. Our photographer was amazing, but the video captured so much life. My husband’s eyes pop in and out of his head when he saw me about to come down the aisle, my dad’s father of the bride speech, my two uncles surprise sandwich-dancing attack on me (and then later capturing my husband and my sister) and my spontaneous decision to do push-ups in my wedding dress during LMFAO’s “Sexy and I Know It”. Those memories and the video that captured them will always be very special to us.
If you’re considering only using photography for your wedding – don’t cheat yourself – it is beyond worth the investment. Then, once you decide you want the best video team there is, call Cord 3 Films, their work is like art and I couldn’t have imagined having anything less.”
“What really sets Cord 3 Films apart is their demeanor, their attention to detail and their ability to do great work..”
“Aside from being amazing filmmakers, what really sets Cord 3 Films apart is their demeanor, their attention to detail and their ability to do great work without intruding into an already stressful environment. Usually, film and videography falls into one of two categories: (1) It’s just plain bad or (2) It’s good, but at the expense of the whole day
feeling like a directed movie set. Not with them! The Cord 3 Films’ team members are experts and know when to take part, when to sit back and what the best possible ways are to make a magnificent wedding film. We love working with them!”
“You would be nuts not to check them out!”
“Glen is an amazingly talented individual. He and his wife, Violet, made me feel so comfortable and excited about my video. They are professional and have an amazing eye for detail. I truly feel blessed to have met them! Just watching the videos on the web site brought me to tears, and I knew I had to use them for my wedding. Their videos are so different from anything I have ever seen, and I am so excited for mine. The day of the wedding they had so many great ideas, and they worked so well with my photographer that I never worried about a thing with them. You would be nuts not to check them out! Thank you so much Glen and Violet for being such a huge part of our day!”
“They were so down to earth and easy to work with. Their work is truly unbelievable.”
“Cord 3 Films is amazing. They were so down to earth and easy to work with. Their
work is truly unbelievable. Videography was one of the major things we researched and
were picky about, and we are absolutely blown away. Their work is like watching an HD
movie. The emotion and story telling is breathtaking. I would work with them a 100 more
“They… even turned what might have been a regular shot into something very emotional.”
“Glen was absolutely amazing! I was lucky enough to find him through a good friend and an acquaintance who had both used his services. Orginally, I was NOT going to use a videographer at all. However, my two contacts who used him – well, he created a 3 1/2 minute wedding trailer (a summary of their entire video), and I absolutely fell in love with his work!! The 2 trailers had me sold then and there.
Glen was very responsive when I reached out. He gave me all of the package options and was extremely easy to work with. He arrived on-time (if not early) and was so great when filming. Half the time, we didn’t even know that he and his assistant were around. They were non-intrusive and caught some amazing shots (or even turned what might have been a regular shot into something very emotional). The best part, he called us on Christmas Eve to let us know our trailer was available. Within days we had 3 copies of our video (per our package) in our hands. We are thrilled with the results!! The trailer and the video were amazing. I would highly recommend Glen to anyone. And the pricing for what we got was very reasonable!!”
“It will be such a fantastic reminder 10, 20, 30+ years down the road of all the thoughts,feelings, emotion…”
“When Scott and I were watching it, we were thinking that it was a great documentary of our day. We loved all the “stories within the story” that you captured, and know that it will be such a fantastic reminder 10, 20, 30+ years down the road of all the thoughts, feelings, emotion and creativity behind the journey leading up to, and of course the day of our wedding…it was SO personal. For us the decision to “invest” in this film was worthwhile as so much goes into planning the event upfront and yet it goes by so fast…the film goes beyond what photography ever could and helps us to preserve those valuable details in such a unique way.
Thanks for being so committed to what you do as filmmakers!”
“You can tell they are passionate about what they do, and the best part about it is they do it well.”
We’ve been photographing weddings for about 8 years now as husband and wife, but we’ve never came across such dynamic cinematographers until we got to work with Cord 3 Films during a wedding in Lancaster, PA. The first time my wife and I met them, we were really impressed with their professionalism and friendliness. They were very willing to work well with us to achieve the best possible coverage for our clients. Their team is also the most hardworking people you will ever encounter. You can tell they are passionate about what they do, and the best part about it is they do it well. If you have not seen their samples, go and check out their website, I promise you will be amazed! I showed a client a highlight that Cord 3 Films produced from a wedding we did together. While she was watching it on my laptop, she started crying…and then she turned to me and said, “I want to hire them to film my wedding.” So, I can’t wait to work with Cord 3 Films again in my future weddings.
“The day the DVD’s arrived in the mail was almost as exciting as the wedding day itself!”
“When I arrived for my wedding consultation, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had thought about a wedding video before, but after seeing a few of my friend’s videos I wasn’t sure if it was something that I wanted. Out of the videos that I had viewed before, most seemed staged, low-budget, and most of all tacky. After chatting with Glen, and watching some of the recent videos that they created for local brides and grooms, I was hooked! I had to have Cord 3 Films for my wedding to document this special day! I told myself that if I couldn’t have them, then I did not want a wedding video at all, because none of the other ones that I had viewed even compared to their creativity and artistry.
On the day of our wedding, Cord 3 Films arrived and began to document all of the day’s activities. One of the best qualities of their team is that you feel as though you have a connection with them throughout the day. They started filming at my parents home, and fit right in with my family and bridesmaids. They made everyone feel comfortable and basically just watched us getting ready. Nothing felt scripted or forced, and I feel as though they fully captured the candid moments of us getting ready. Even though they were with us for the entire day, I never felt as though they smothered us to get the shots they needed. I don’t even remember seeing their cameras as they captured my walk down the aisle or during the reception. They were simply on the sidelines and not interfering with what was going on, but were still able to capture all of the beautiful moments of the day.
The day the DVD’s arrived in the mail was almost as exciting as the wedding day itself! After watching it (several times) I couldn’t believe that something that amazing could have been created. The shots and music flowed perfectly together and we felt as though we were watching a movie, not a wedding video.
We could not have been any more pleased with Cord 3 Films. They are amazing videographers, but more importantly amazing people who truly care about their clients and friends. Their work is stunning and cannot be described simply in words. But, if you watch one of their videos or trailers, you will be instantly hooked, like us, and so many of their clients.”
“AMAZING work! We were so thankful to have such a great recommendation from our
photography, to use Cord 3 Films! They are a pleasure to work with and really know
how to capture the day! They are the best out there and definitely worth the investment!
“It was clear they had an eye for capturing the most special of moments..”
We knew that we wanted Cord 3 Films to be our videographer the moment we viewed a friend’s wedding trailer and all the other beautiful trailers they have created. It was clear they had an eye for capturing the most special of moments and putting them together
to tell the story of each couple in such a unique way. Glen and his team were extremely professional and easy to work with; and the quality of our video is second to none! We had our video back shortly after our honeymoon and the entire process was worry free.
“This is the creativity and sensitivity that Cord 3 brings back to you 10 fold with their moving pictures.”
Cord 3 Films never fails to impress me. As a photographer, the cinema crew can
often make or break a successful day. Cord 3 Films is never obtrusive and always pleasant. But this is just the day of the wedding. I’ve shot with them several times, and each time they have sent me the highlight. Not one has failed to make me cry! At one point, I even found myself viewing other weddings they had shot without me. And, I was still getting emotional- and I shoot weddings! This is the creativity and sensitivity that Cord 3 brings back to you 10 fold with their moving pictures.
“He captured amazing moments and the quality…”
“AMAZING! Glen was a fly on the wall the day of my wedding, just like I wanted! He
captured amazing moments and the quality of his work is visible the moment you view
any of his work. If you can gather all of your money together and hire him, it’ll be worth
it trust me!”
“…we are soooo thankful we booked them to capture the most important day of our lives!”
“We had gone back and forth about whether or not to hire a videographer. We booked
an amazing photographer about 2 seconds after we were engaged and didn’t think we needed a videographer. However, the more people we talked to, the more we realized that we wanted one. Less than a week away from the wedding we booked Cord 3 Films! They were very flexible even though we waited until the last minute to book them. They did a promo video for our photographer and we LOVED their work! Cord 3 Films was fantastic to work with, and we are soooo thankful we booked them to capture the most important day of our lives!”
“Hire them right away…”
“Oh. My. God. This company is AMAZING. Hire them right away if you can. Their work is probably the best work I have ever seen in wedding videos. There is a lot of garbage out there, and Cord 3 Films really emphasizes that fact because their work truly outshines anything else that is out there. Check out their website, view the wedding trailers…They are worth every penny we spent.”
“The clips are like you’re watching a movie…”
“My husband picked our videographer, and I was a little skeptical since it was his choice. But I’m so happy that I trusted him! Glen Elliott did an amazing job with our vignette, and if you look at his past work, you see such an amazing talent. The clips are like you’re watching a movie and I highly recommend him for your wedding! Glen and his team are so laid back and so easy to work with. You will not regret!”
