"Our film was SO stunning and Chris captured our story so beautifully! Chris is an incredibly talented and gifted film maker. He is also super passionate about what he does - which is apparent when you see him completely immersed in his craft - and it shows in the way he directs you and edits the film. He is also a really fun and easygoing guy to be around. It was such a pleasure getting to know him and have him document such an important event in our lives. We couldn't have chosen better. Thank you Chris - you are brilliant!!
YOUR VERY KIND
t was a true pleasure working with Zen Film Works! Chris Nemes is not only incredibly talented, but so friendly and personable.
Upon meeting him you instantly feel comfortable and relaxed; as though you’re meeting with an old friend. He maintains this throughout his shooting, and you feel that you’re working with a good friend who is just as invested in capturing your perfect day as you are. Chris has a bright and trusting personality. He makes you feel comfortable to open up, and to share stories and emotions that are typically reserved for those we trust the most. That is the magic of Chris – he’s genuine and caring, and has and true ambition to share your love story. The end result is magic. He is somehow able to capture all your emotions just as you experienced them, and your perfect day just as you saw it.
There aren’t enough words to express my gratitude towards Chris and Zen Film Works. I had dreamed of what my wedding video would look like and Chris by far exceeded my expectations. He has the perfect personality to film a couple who’s not necessarily a natural behind the camera.
He eased our nerves, encouraged lots of kissing and lovey-dovey moments, and made us feel as though we were just hanging out, dancing in the streets of Paris. Isn’t this every girls dream?! He made sure our wedding video was flawless, capturing the most perfect moments from the start of our day to the end of our day, just as I had hoped.
Chris gave us the sweetest gift of remembering the love that was there on most the perfect day of our lives and we will cherish our video forever. He also gets serious bonus points for creating two instagram clips for me 😊 Best Decision Ever.
AND WE CANNOT RECOMMEND HIM MORE TO ANYONE WANTING TO CAPTURE THEIR WEDDING BEAUTIFULLY
RITZ PARIS WEDDING
I cannot describe how wonderful and amazing Chris from Zen Film Works is. As a couple from the US not really knowing how to navigate our Paris elopement, Chris was exceptional in responding to our emails, making suggestions on the shoot and even met with us via Skype to make sure all our questions were answered.
Zen film works is amazing, we can't recommend Chris enough. He bought fun and enthusiasm to our wedding whilst remaining professional to make sure all the little things were captured that you wouldn't think about in a million years. So many inspiring ideas! He was also patient with the slow, injured bride and made us laugh the whole day. We could tell how much pride he took in his work and how important it is to make the best videos - great to see him get so excited whenever he got a 'sick' bit of footage! Thank you so much Chris for making our day so special.
From the off, we always wanted to capture our wedding day on film, a chance to share it with family and friends that couldn’t join us there in France and to have a memory which we could relive with our children as they grow older.
After sharing a video call with Chris prior to the wedding I instantly felt comfortable and confident in what Chris was to capture on the day, Chris makes that extra effort in ensuring what is captured is very much personalised to you and not just ‘another wedding video’.
On the wedding day, nerves and excitement hit, Chris arrived as we were beginning to get ready, the weather was grim and as you can imagine as the bride I was worried for what our outside wedding was to turn out like....Chris immediately put me at ease and turned the events of the weather into a perfect setting for the introductory video (as he does) and he did not disappoint.
Chris just fitted in to the wedding party, he was another guest (ha) he laughed, joked, took selfies and made ourselves and our guests completely at ease enabling him to capture all those special moments without a glimpse of us knowing!
His films are truly unique, capturing the moments that time stood still to us and reflecting them in what we can only describe as magnificent.
We continue to watch our film over and over alongside friends, family, colleagues and more (mums in the school yard even passing comments) and each and everyone are amazed and describe his work as “a romantic fairy-tale” or “the most romantic film I’ve ever seen” or “I cried with emotion” the list goes on....
If you have always dreamed of capturing your big day we cannot recommend Chris enough, and you will certainly not be disappointed!
