Take Heart Films is a wedding videography company I started in 2015. I create cinematic wedding videos for couples who choose to make the beautiful and bold leap of faith into the commitment of marriage.
I've always wanted my line of work to service others and to honor God. That is why I started Take Heart Films. My hope is to share many great love stories with the world. The name "Take Heart" came to me from the Bible. Take heart appears multiple times in the Bible when referring to courage and strength. I chose this name because it is these things that have lead me to where I am now, and it is those same two things that guide others in love.
During my career as a videographer, I have had the opportunity to work in many different places. Currently, the three places I work free of travel fees are Austin, Orange County, and the Bay Area . I am always up for an adventure and open to worldwide travel.
Thank you so much for visiting.
Love, Kirsten Alise Saharek
Take Heart Films has very high standards when it comes to the filming of your wedding day. Every wedding videography package includes two videographers to cover your day. As the founder and lead videographer of Take Heart Films, I will always be the lead videographer at every wedding. This way, you know who your videographer is from the start and don't have any guesswork to do on one of the biggest days of your life! I also have a very high standard when it comes to who the second videographer will be at your wedding. I only hire videographers who can perform at the same level and achieve similar videography looks and styles.
Weddings are an all day event! That is why my packages range from 8 hour coverage all the way to full day coverage. That way, nothing is missed and you can have everything captured all the way from getting ready in the morning to your grand exit!
I want my clients to feel like they get to RELIVE their entire day. It flies by in an instant and that is why it is so important to have it all captured. Depending on which package you book, I offer a highlight video, a 7-10 minute film, and a 20 minute film. I also offer full ceremony edits. Luckily, each package includes your uncut vows and toasts because I know how sentimental and personal those parts of your wedding day are.
For those of you who want to own the video files of everything that was filmed on your wedding day, I do offer raw footage as an extra add on to any package! You will be mailed a drive with each unedited video file.
Additional film days
If you would like to add a day of filming to your package for something such as a rehearsal dinner or event, this can be done as well! The cost is dependent on the location and hours needed.
I may not live where you live, or where your wedding is taking place, but that doesn't mean I can't come to you! Travel packages are available, just ask me about it! I am willing to go just about anywhere for your wedding.
Each wedding includes drone filming, so long as your venue allows for it. Certain venues have restrictions due to privacy or airports. If drone is something that is important to you, I can find out if your venue allows it before your big day.
Take Heart Films wedding videography packages start at $3,000. If you are getting married in a destination location or a state which I do not live in, reasonable travel costs will be added on to the existing package you have chosen.
