Taven Elias | Complete Weddings + Events | St. Louis Wedding Videographers

Why did you decide to become a videographer?

I have always been an artist and musician. I have been obsessed with photography and videography since childhood. My first video camera required a separate VHS recorder on a shoulder strap. I came to Complete as a DJ and found out I could also indulge my passion for videography.

What is your favorite memory from an event you’ve shot?

Recently on May the 4th, I shot a Star Wars themed wedding. During the reception, the whole wedding party squared off on the dance floor for a lightsaber battle! I then got the bride and groom to have a solo battle. It was so much fun and the footage came out amazing!

What is your favorite thing about being a videographer?

Connecting with people and making any event into a work of art.

What makes you or your work unique/stand out?

My greatest skill is not my excellent eye for composition or my smooth camera movement (I have both, of course). It is my ability to connect with my clients and help capture their happiest moments! Even when the day gets stressful (as it inevitably does) I find a way to turn it around.

What is your favorite part of the night?

I love the part of the day where the photographer and I go off with the newlyweds to a beautiful setting to shoot without anyone else around. It’s these moments (often they don’t even know I’m shooting) where I get to capture the true love and happiness in their eyes as they look at each other.

List one fun fact about you most people don’t know:

I tend to annoy my family and friends with comments like “that was a cool transition” or “nice camera movement on that shot” or “look at the lighting, it’s ridiculous!” During tv and movies…

"My husband and I had the pleasure of spending our wedding day with Taven Elias. He was absolutely wonderful!! He was very polite and was especially great with our many children we had with us. Taven has a very positive attitude and good energy. The wedding party enjoyed having him around. Taven also worked very well with the two photographers we had for the day. I would highly recommend Complete Weddings and Events and Taven for the services!!!" - Angela L.
