Colorado Elopement Videographer

Indie Films Inspired By Stories Of Life, Love, & Adventure

Elopement Videographer

I'm Austin Francis Sylvest - an elopement videographer and filmmaker. I absolutely love that I get to call my full-time job filming weddings and elopements all over the western US, Iceland, and New Zealand. I currently live in Boulder, Colorado with my wife Elsa, which has been our home since 2018.

I'm a believer that stories are powerful, redeeming, and inspiring. In a world that seems to keep getting larger, and our stories feel less significant to those around us, I'm here to create a reminder that you're everything but ordinary. You story is powerful, your story is just as meaningful, and the story of your journey is just as important and significant as anyone else's in this world.

Let your life show your love, and your love, create your adventure.

Hello, I'm Austin

(Francis Is My Middle Name)

I'm also A husband, filmmaker & cinematographer based in Boulder, Colorado. Creating films of everyday life, love, & adventure is my biggest biggest passion, & also happens to be my full-time job.

Oftentimes, you can find me hunting down the best with my wife Elsa, or checking out a new random location in the mountains I found on Google Earth, which might just be the perfect location for your elopement.

Together, we'll create a timeless piece of art that you can reflect back on & share for generations to come. It will be a reminder of the deep love you have for your partner in addition to a time capsule of this stage of your lives together.

In the end, it's my ultimate goal to help you not just feel your elopement day again, but tell your story in a way that's empowering for generations to come.

Meet The Team

In addition to offering elopement and wedding videography, I also offer elopement and intimate wedding photography alongside my great friends Lauren & Travis of Love, Lorraine. This collaboration is the result of us meeting and finding out that our businesses weren't all that different, and that we just wanted to give our couples a better wedding day experience.

Hey friends, I’m Lauren. I’ve been traveling all over the country with my partner Travis and our dog, Denali in our tiny home on wheels since 2017. Co-creating epic elopement experiences for couples is so rewarding, and I’m so stoked that I get to call this my “job”.

The photographs I have of my grandmother, Lorraine remind me of her life story, and the joy she carried with her every day. They inspire me to create photographs for our couples that remind them of the incredible memories they’ve shared together. I want to provide you with the same legacy that Lorraine left behind for me.

Life is short, it is important to celebrate & experience every moment of it.

Hey there! I’m Travis.

My partner Lauren and I started a photography business 10 years ago. Little did we know that it would take us on the road and have us traveling the world capturing couple’s stories in epic landscapes.

While I have been practicing photography for years, I have always had a knack for travel and experiencing different corners of our home.

For me, photography is about being able to experience these real moments in our lives over and over again. Life passes us by so fast, it is important to slow down and take in where we are as often as we can. Experiencing photographs of these moments provides a wave of nostalgia, remind us how lucky we are to have been there.

We take pride in our work, and while we love photography, we maybe love giving our couples the greatest experience possible even more.

An Elopement Day That's Authentic To You

The Start Of Your Visual Legacy Together

Your wedding day shouldn't be about the objects that surround you, rather the two of you celebrating in a way that's true to you. Oftentimes, I see couples default to the traditional 'big wedding' narrative that doesn't feel authentic to them. In the end, I'm here to help you find a route that's real, honest, & special to just you.

Do you ever think about what your grandparents & parents lives were like before your time? While media wasn't as easily available then to tell longer form stories, luckily for us, it is! Creating your visual legacy will not only show who you are as people, but also allow your future family members to know your story.

Whether that's hiking in the mountains, or an intimate gathering with your immediate family, I'm here for it. Your story shouldn't be confined by old wedding traditions, and definitely not by a stereotypical wedding venue. Rather, let's tell your story in an environment that's truly you, no compromise.

In addition, it will also allow them to hear your voices & the words you use, therefore giving them a true insight into your lives. Your story will be told in a way that's uniquely you, with no cookie cutter aspects. To cap things off, we'll tell this story with a cinematic feel so that it lives on for generations to come.

"Francis's filmmaking has the uncanny ability to pull you back into each memory, as if reliving it another time. That is magical. That is art."
