Moving Pictures was amazing to work with! They were very helpful in the planning process, quick to respond to any emails or calls, and so much fun to work with on our big day! We are beyond thrilled that we went with Moving Pictures!

Couldn't have asked for a better wedding video!
Having Moving Pictures film our wedding was the greatest blessing! I was a crazy- stressed out bride about everything except photo and video. This was only because Marc and Cody at Moving Pictures were so incredible at what they do, that I knew I could rely on them 100% to capture everything that we wanted. My husband and I were able to relax and enjoy every moment without having to worry if the videographers got it on film. They were engaged with us the whole time, and truly captured the magic of our day. They are extremely talented, but more than that, they are intentional and that is what shines through the most. We are so pleased with our final films and would highly recommend Moving Pictures for your wedding :)

Masters of Their Craft
Having Moving Pictures capture our wedding day was honestly one of the best decisions we made about our wedding. When you spend so much time, money, and energy on a single day, it's something that you'd want to experience more than once, and that's exactly what Moving Pictures does for couples. We received our final wedding video and SOBBED because it brought back so many emotions and memories, and honestly, reminded us why we fell in love in the first place. The cinematography is hands-down the best in the Pacific Northwest, if not the country. And the editing team at MP takes storytelling to another level. What sets MP apart from other wedding companies is the talent and skillset they bring to their work. Weddings are not just an event to record for them; it's an opportunity to make art. Someone should hire MP if they want a truly masterful and artistic film. We had a destination wedding in Mexico, and despite all the chaos that occurs with planning events from faraway, the MP team was a delight and easy to work with. On our wedding day, they acted like flies on the wall and came in with comfortable & confident direction when it mattered most (i.e. First look, etc. ) We can't thank Moving Pictures enough for the treasure they created for us. Our wedding film is something we will cherish for a lifetime.

Thank you so much, Megan! We had THE BEST time with you, Jessie, and your friends and family in Tulum. We're so glad we got to capture such a special milestone for you two.

We spent over 1. 5 years planning our wedding and we wanted a film company who we knew we could trust to capture all of the detail in the most professional way possible. Moving Pictures is that company! They were an absolute pleasure to work with and they even took the time to get to know me and my Bride on a personal level! Having so much collaboration with them prior to the event allowed them to understand our vision and execute it flawlessly! This is by far the best Film company in the State of Oregon, if not the entire country! If you want the best of the best choose moving Pictures!
If you do choose Moving Pictures, which I highly recommend, tell Marc (Mac) I say hi!
Moving Pictures's reply:
Thanks so much Will! We truly enjoyed working with you and Brittany!

Choosing Moving Pictures to shoot our destination wedding in St. Thomas, USVI was one of the best decisions we could have made. Mark made us so comfortable and you can tell his passion for filming couples special moments. Their work speaks for itself and our teaser video we received a week after the wedding has had myself, husband and all of my family in tears nearly every single time we have watched it. If you are having a destination wedding and don't choose Moving Pictures you are doing yourself a disservice.

Hands down the easiest and best decision we made about our wedding day- choosing Moving Pictures to capture the most important day in our lives. Some bride and grooms might think woah about the price but when you really think about it, you will want to pick quality. Not only is the first introduction already very personable, they also meet with you before the wedding to get to know you personally and ask all your wants. Day of the wedding we felt so comfortable with Marc and the second shooter, they felt like family on that day and you knew that they already had their magical plan in place of how and where they were going to capture every single moment of the wedding. They came to the rescue with lights since we cut the cake in the dark- which actually made the wedding footage look even cooler. The team was great about communicating our wedding timeline ETA and even though we waited a bit longer than anticipated it was 1000% even more worth it. They compensated for the time as well, adding in extra features and a preview. Moving Pictures also does this cool thing where they re-post footage on their social media randomly and makes you cry when you unexpectedly see it and cry at work. I can't say enough great things about Moving Pictures and it should be an easy choice for future bride and grooms to pick them for their wedding day!

Moving Pictures was the single best investment we made on our wedding day. We are absolutely in love with the video they put together. The Moving Pictures team is masterful at weaving several beautiful story lines together. The video took our breath away. We laugh and cry all over again reliving our wedding day on film. The cinematographers do an amazing job of blending in on your wedding day. You truly forget they’re there. I can’t thank Marc, Emily, Ryan and Carrie enough. The team makes the process fun. From our meetings before the wedding to the actual wedding day and the viewing party months later, they made everything easy for us. I would recommend Moving Pictures to anyone and everyone. Thank you, thank you!

Moving Pictures is FANTASTIC! Don’t go anywhere else to get your wedding film made! Moving Pictures was able to determine without my talking to them all of the special moments of my wedding and complied them into the most beautiful short film. Thanks Moving Pictures!

Thank you Jessica, we wish you and Jason the very best!

When beginning to plan our wedding day, we were undecided about a lot of things, but there was one thing we were certain of - Moving Pictures was going to be our videographer. The films they create are hands down, the best out there. Every film is unique to each and every couple and does an incredible job capturing the day. The quality is top notch and shows how talented the entire team is. From filming to editing, they know what they're doing. They're a team of creatives who have a vision and they portray it perfectly with their captivating films. From start to finish, our experience with Moving Pictures was wonderful. Every interaction, whether it be in person or through email, was professional, helpful and enjoyable. If you're worried about being uncomfortable in front of the camera, don't be! Marc and the rest of the team are the kindest, most easy going, friendly and fun people. They will make you feel totally at ease and you won't even notice they're there! We knew Marc's work was going to be incredible, but when we saw our wedding film, we were blown away. It surpassed all of our expectations. Marc has a creative eye and captured all of the beautiful moments from our wedding day perfectly. Moving Pictures gave us a beautiful video that we will treasure forever. All of the videos they create are amazing, but when it is YOUR wedding video, it's hard to put into words how special it is. Marc captured everything perfectly and Emily did an amazing job editing everything into a cohesive and beautiful story of our special day. Your wedding day goes by SO FAST! Having a way to revisit and relive it is such a special gift! Your video will be a keepsake you'll have for the rest of your lives that will allow you to watch and remember the day whenever you want as well as share it with those you love. I cannot say enough good things about Moving Pictures or recommend them enough. You will not be disappointed or regret your decision. You will only regret NOT hiring them!

Thank you Katie, we loved sharing in your special day!

We could not be more pleased with Moving Pictures. Mark and his team are consummate professionals. From the discerning taste to the couple with negligible preferences, they are a great fit for any couple. It truly was amazing to watch our film and see all the moments they captured so perfectly because we hardly noticed they were there on our big day. It's no surprise that they won “Portland’s Best Wedding Videographer” for 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017 by Oregon Bride Magazine. My wife and I spent quite a bit of time reviewing videographers that service our area before we chose Moving Pictures and what we found out after reading all of their reviews, their clients were right; Moving Pictures will not disappoint.

Thank you Seth! Congrats on your beautiful marriage!

Moving Pictures captured our wedding day so perfectly. My friends and family that couldn't make it to the Big Day feel as though they were there due to the amazing storytelling in the film. We weren't sure if we should hire a videographer, but we are so glad we did! Moving Pictures really went above and beyond any expectations that I had. They took the chance to get to know us before the wedding and gave many follow ups during their editing. Each time we watch the video, we find something new to fall in love with. My husband and I plan to watch our wedding video every anniversary. Thank you for giving us this beautiful memory!

Thank you Taylor! Wishing you and Tyler all the best!

Being a videographer myself, my husband and I only wanted the BEST to capture our wedding day. The Moving Pictures team knocked it out of the park and far exceeded our expectations! They are beyond brilliant, and we are so fortunate to have all of our special moments captured in such a memorial, and cinematic way. We recommend them 100%!

We cannot recommend Moving Pictures enough! Marc, Emily, Carrie and the entire MP team were incredible to work with. We were blown away by our video! They are the most caring, fun and creative people to work with- hands down the best in the business. We love being able to watch our video and re-live our day over and over and know we will cherish it always. The entire team makes such an effort to get to know you and tell your story through the video. Our video felt like a cinematic production and not just some camera on a tripod. They communicated with us often and spending the day with them was comfortable and easy. They felt like great friends throughout our day and were so easy to work with! We cannot say enough great things about them. On top of everything; we had a very close friend battling cancer who devastated she was too sick to make it to our wedding. When our planner communicated this to Marc and the team; they went above and beyond for us. After our wedding; they shared a same day edit with our close friend who couldn't be there. They knew how meaningful this would be for her to see and feel as though she were there; and it truly meant so much to her. She passed just a couple of months after our wedding; and we are SO grateful that she was able to see this and cannot thank them enough for this. Do yourself a favor and hire them. They are worth the investment and so much more!

WOW-- thank you Moving Pictures for the most amazing wedding video we could have EVER imagined!
Hiring Moving Pictures was one of the best decisions that we almost didn't make. The idea of having a camera on us all day was a bit intimidating, and we weren't sure how often we would actually watch the video. However, Marc and his team were extremely professional, provided valuable perspective in helping us prepare to have our day captured, and were super fun! We can't imagine not having our video now to look back on our wedding day! We have cherished watching and re-watching the incredible story the team captured and edited. Their talent to retell our wedding day thru video makes hiring them an easy recommendation.

The decision to hire a videographer for our wedding came very late in the planning process. Like many couples, we thought, “when will we ever sit down and watch our wedding video? ” After looking for a few videographers online, we were very much taken by what Moving Pictures had on their website. The design and layout of their website was merely an accurate glimpse of the beauty, artistry, and professionalism that the team at Moving Pictures provided us. It was more than just a transaction with a vendor, it was an experience that only made our special day all the more magical. The ease and flexibility of Marc and his crew in unparalleled. As luck would have it, they had an opening on our wedding day and were perhaps more excited to work with us! The thoughtful and patient preparation leading to our big day was welcomed as we scurried to finalize our other plans. The attention to fine detail and their way of working with us, our wedding party, our families, and guests created a calming atmosphere all while the excitement was not lost. The resulting film was absolutely breathtaking. Ryan’s editing skills are world-class as he allowed us, and our guests to relive our historic day while allowing those who were unable to attend to feel a part of it without missing the finest of details. The professionalism and white-glove treatment continues in post-production as they secure our continued satisfaction. I highly recommend Moving Pictures to anyone who is getting married, especially to those who did not think they needed or wanted videographers. Moving Pictures was an essential part of our wedding day and will be to everyone else’s too. Carrie, Marc, and Ryan with the rest of the staff are experts in both film making and relationship building.

Moving Pictures absolutely blew us away with their AMAZING work. Not only was the final product absolutely stunning (so much better than we could have imagined), but working with these folks was an absolute blast! Hiring Moving Pictures to shoot our wedding and rehearsal dinner was probably the best decision we made throughout the entire process. They made our special day come to life, and the wedding video (and same day edit! ) will enable us to remember our special day for years to come. Honestly, words cannot describe how grateful we are. Moving Pictures work was perfection, and we hope to stay friends with everyone on the team!

Words can't explain how happy we are with Moving Pictures. From the moment we met our videographer to the time we received our finished product we had nothing but a wonderful experience. Our Videographer Glen took the time to get to know us personally which completely showed in our video. Anyone would be lucky to him assigned to your wedding. Our editor Emily demonstrated amazing customer service. She even helped us add a personal touch to our video! This was definitely worth every penny!

We are so happy that we went with Moving Pictures to document our wedding day. At one point, we were even considering if it was even worth adding to the budget. Wow, we are so glad we went ahead with it! There were many elements in the video that we, as a bride and groom, were not able to catch that day since our time and attention was pulled to so many different places. The day goes by so fast! There's nothing like being able to relive the day over and over as many times as you want! Moving Pictures was able to capture the whole vibe and emotion from that day and being able to share that with family and friends that were not able to make it that day is just priceless. We are forever thankful for this super talented team.

We were very impressed by the professionalism of Moving Pictures and its employees, and the incredibly high quality wedding video they produced for us. My mom and I did a special, surprise and choreographed mother and son dance, and Moving Pictures not only beautifully captured it on film, but made a professionally edited version for us as well! We were not expecting that, and it is something that my mother and I will cherish for the rest of our lives. There aren't words to describe how beyond satisfied we are, and they perfectly captured all the elements of the wedding itself, as well as aspects of who we are and our personalities. I highly recommend Moving Pictures to anyone considering a videographer for their wedding.

I honestly can not thank Moving Pictures enough for our beautiful wedding video. We have such a great movie of our wedding day that we will cherish forever! All of our family and friends have raved about the quality of the movie. The day of the wedding you couldn't even tell they were there and they worked seamlessly with our other vendors. You can tell these guys put their hearts and souls into their work. I was so impressed with their professionalism, work ethic and all around passion for their jobs that Marc and his team have. It wasn't originally in our budget to have a videographer, but I am so glad we made room for it! Even my (now) husband is glad I talked him into it! It is worth every penny! You will not regret hiring Moving Pictures!

These guys are incredible. We LOVE our wedding film. It's just amazing. Thank you to Ryan for all the editing work you put into this. And Thank you to Marc, he was so helpful and knowledgeable before the wedding and the day of. They are all so friendly and helpful and really make it a personal experience. Their work is so beautiful and wonderful!

What a great experience it was working with Marc. My wife and I were from out of town, but Marc made it super easy to communicate from the beginning. One of our big concerns was having the videographers in your face during the ceremony and reception (we've been to other weddings where it felt like they had taken over and really distracted from the events), but Marc was fantastic. We really didn't even notice he was there. But the footage still came out beautifully and the final product is spectacular! If you're thinking about having a videographer, I can HIGHLY recommend Moving Pictures! Thanks guys!

Marc Rotse and his Moving Pictures team go above and beyond delivering an exceptional wedding video. It was a truly heart warming experience from beginning, to the final product. Marc is professional, prepared, warm and easy to work with. We never once doubted his ability to accurately capture our day. Our wedding video is so beautiful, it is a true treasure to keep for a lifetime. Some of our wedding photographs were compromised, so I highly suggest a wedding video as well! It is worth the spend! We can't thank Moving Pictures enough! We are holding onto our video until our first wedding anniversary to share it with the rest of our world. It's that special! What we also love about Moving Pictures is that they keep all your wedding film for years. We are hoping to get a full length documentary made, so we can relive the entire day. Your wedding day seriously goes by in a flash, choose Moving Pictures to help you relive all those special moments all over again. We have dark-moody-romantic wedding video of our dreams. Thank you to Marc and Team!

After watching some of the videos Moving Picture Weddings had brought with them to the Bridal show, and after getting countless amazing reviews from friends, we knew that they had to be the ones to capture our special day!
Both of our videographers were phenomenal! They were super easy to work with and made it seem like they weren't even there. They were professional, and friendly. Our wedding day went by so fast that my husband and I were amazed at how everything kind of blurred together. The first time we sat down and watched our wedding video it was so magically because we really got to relive that day! Moving Pictures captured our wedding and made it into the most beautiful story!

We had many loved ones who were not able to make our wedding, so we knew from the beginning that we wanted a videographer to capture our day. We went to what my husband thinks were hundreds of wedding shows, and out of every videographer we saw, none had a product equal to the quality of Moving Picture Weddings. From the moment we met the Moving Picture team and saw a few of their clips, we knew we did not have to look any further! The icing on the cake was discovering that Marc was an Aussie, his voice made me feel like I was back home!
On the day of the wedding the team was so professional and great with all of the guests, I had many friends comment about how fantastic they were.
The quality of their work is impeccable! The 'Next Day Edit’ was the perfect summary of our wedding, and a wonderful way to share our day with all our friends who were not able to attend; we also used it to surprise all our out of town guests at the day-after brunch!
As a bride, the crew at Moving Pictures did not only capture my day perfectly, but did much more: they pinned boutonnieres, made my guests feel at home, and where calming voices during nervous moments. One of the easiest and best vendor choices we made. We love these guys!
