your love story

uniquely Crafted  × UNIQUELY yours


Your wedding is a moment in time that should be captured with care. I seek to know my couples on a personal level so I can create a wedding film that reflects you and your best friend for life.

I am so thankful that we chose Michael to film our wedding day. He captured our day so beautifully and perfectly. Michael was an absolute professional, and worked along with us so well!

Michael did a great job! He was very professional and worked well with our photographer. He had a second shooter, which I really loved because we have lots of great footage. He was a good balance of getting the shot and staying out of the way during special moments. He was also affordable for this wedding on a budget!

Michael did a fantastic job filming our wedding! He was great to work with, flexible, professional and produced a phenomenal product. As a videographer myself I can say he has great skill and high quality equipment. He provided a good variety of professional shots, told a story well, and was cinematically creative. I would highly recommend him!

Michael crafted a phenomenal wedding video for us to treasure for a lifetime, and also share with those who joined us in celebrating our marriage. Michael demonstrated professionalism every minute of the process that he spent with us, and in receiving our video, we saw this professional attitude translated into care for the moments that my husband and I shared that day. Michael also made us both feel very comfortable in front of the camera.
I would highly recommend Michael Lemley Films to anyone looking for a high-quality professional videographer, as well as someone who listens to the couple and personalizes the experience for them!
Thank you so much, Michael, for creating an amazing memory for us to cherish forever.

Q. How far in advance should I book my wedding?

A. I have a limited number of weddings I shoot each year. I would recommend booking anywhere from 7-10 months before your wedding to secure your spot!

Q. Should we do a first look?

A.  This one is totally up to you! You and your fiiancé should talk this over together beforehand. First looks provide a great way for you two to see each other and share a special moment together before the craziness of the day sets in. (They also look super cool for your wedding video)

Q. How long have you been filming weddings?

A. I've been filming weddings since 2015.

Q. How long until I receive my wedding film? 

A. Wedding films are delivered within 8-10 weeks after your wedding. I’ll also give you a 60 second social media highlight the day of the wedding that's perfect for sharing with friends and family.

Q. Do I have to pay in full?

A. Nope! I just require a 20% retainer that's paid when you book me. The rest can be split up however you would like or paid all at once 2 weeks before the wedding. 

Q. Should I do custom vows/letters?

A. While every wedding video is different and unique, your highlight film will benifit from having custom vows or card readings. They're a great way for your personality to shine through in the video and adds a personal touch to the film.

About me



Michael Lemley


My name is Michael Lemley and I'm the founder of Michael Lemley Films. My interest in filmmaking sparked at the young age of 6 years old when I began teaching myself how to edit and shoot video. I’ve loved the medium of video for as long as I can remember. I truly believe in the power that video has in creative storytelling. I love being able to tell the story of a couple in a creative way through my wedding films. It’s a moment in time that you can watch forever and I take great pride in being able to capture those memories in a creative and cinematic way.

Some of my work has won several awards including recognition from the ING Corporation, CSPAN, The College of William & Mary's Global Film Festival, and many local publications. I also work for Liberty University as a broadcast technician producing football games, weekly convocation services, and other university events.

When I'm not behind the camera, I love to travel. Being able to explore new cultures and cities and capture the beauty of the world we live in is something that makes me happy.
