Paul & Capital Films are amazing! They were very thorough on our wedding day, while somehow managing to not be "in the way", which is hard to do! He and Kelli are adorable and really sweet, and my husband and I had a great time replaying our wedding film. They definitely captured the spirit of the whole day. They made our wedding look so epic...lol Do consider hiring them for your videography or wedding planning!!Sep 18, 2016Verified
Choosing Capital Films DC was by far the best decision I made for our wedding! My husband and I weren't sure if we even wanted a videography due to trying to stay within a budget. We stumbled upon Capital Films and couldn't pass up the great deal for exceptional quality. Ever since we started working with Paul and Kelli, they have been great! They are both very responsive to messages and any questions you may have before the wedding. On the day of the wedding, they arrived early and were extremely easy to work with. They make you feel very comfortable around them and you don't even notice them throughout the day. After the wedding was over they incorporated our ideas along with their own to create a unique video for us. I've probably watched the video 100 times since I received it last week. I love it! I highly suggest choosing to work with Paul and Kelli- you won't regret it!May 5, 2017Verified
I can't say enough about Paul & Kelli! When I was engaged and looking through blogs and articles and hearing from past brides, they talked about loving the fact that they had a videographer or that they regretted not hiring one. Being a wedding photographer, I know that while photos can be amazing at capturing emotion and all the details, it doesn't record the emotion in your voice when you are saying your vows or the laughter at your Best Man's speech... and I wanted that! I found Paul & Kelli online and after our first Skype conversation, I knew they were perfect! They are SO sweet! They captured the day and all the emotions, perfectly! I have watched our video easily 15 times in the last couple days and each time I cry and laugh! My husband and I have said countless times that we are so happy we hired Capital Films DC! The wedding day flies by so fast, and so many details, people, etc are hard to recall; but my hubby and I are over joyed that we can now relive the whole day whenever we want! Thank you Paul & Kelli!!!!!Oct 21, 2016Verified
Paul and his team were fantastic. They turned around the film fast and were very easy to work with. Loved their HD camera and the crisp quality.Apr 19, 2016

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?All of our packages can be found here on our website: capitalfilmsdc.com/cinema-packages
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The first step is to set up a simple phone call to get to know the couple and there requirements. Next we set up a FaceTime, Skype or even meet in person to go over details of what exactly will be captured during the wedding day. After, we write up a contract which guarantees the wedding date and services. We do require that 20% of the total be put down at the signing of the contract and the rest is due two weeks before the actual date. Once everything is all said and done, we make a movie!
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Growing up as the son of a photographer has many advantages. I operated as his secondary editer when he was backlogged at the age of 10. I also accompanied him to various jobs on a regular basis to help set up and second shoot. At age thirteen, I received my first SLR camera and immersed myself in the world of freelance photography. Over time DSLR cameras became video capable and soon after I made my transition to cinematography. Since then, I have taken classes from the great Ray Roman and Rob Adams specializing in wedding cinematography.
