Tell me about your organization?

Elite Entertainment is a creative group of videographers.  Our mission is to provide industry leading service and we strive to be the best at our craft by paying great attention to detail to tell our clients story.  


What has been the best benefit of being an ILEA member?

Networking and business connections


How does being apart of ILEA further your personal growth and business growth?

I am able to meet others who have the same passion for special events.  Sharing new ideas and business practices keeps us up to date on current trends in the industry and makes us want to make the next event better than the last.


Who is your dream client?

My dream client is someone that appreciates my vision for a project and just says we trust you to make the event awesome and gives me complete creative control. A mother of the bride hired us immediately after seeing our work on a same day edit at a wedding she was attending for her daughter that was not yet engaged.   When the day finally came for her daughter, we got the call and she said, just do your thing, I know it will be incredible. 


What types of events do you cover?

We specialize in event and wedding videography but have recently expanded into corporate work with commercials, training videos, and social media marketing content.


If you weren’t in the special events industry where do you think you would be? 

That’s a good question, I have a hard time envisioning a life without video. I would probably be in a field that would allow me to be creative in other ways. 


What’s the most fun special event you’ve worked on?

On Sept. 24th, 2016 we filmed an event unlike any other we have had the privilege of capturing.  With one of the grooms being well involved in the wedding and entertainment industry and a close personal friend, we knew the expectations were set over the moon for their wedding.  With that in mind, we tasked ourselves with filming and editing the events together that day in order to create a viewing event at the end of the night that added to their over the top mantra. The highlight we showed was a spectacle for the grooms and their guests that helped recap the day and add the exclamation point at the very end of their wedding day story. The viewing of the highlight ended their guests night and left everyone with a final reminder of the love they shared and the statement that love is love.

We won Best Videography and Best Wedding ($75,000-$150,000) at the ILEA WOW Awards for this event!
