Welcome To All. I’m Francis,
Non-Traditional Films All About How It Felt
Hey there, I’m Austin Francis Sylvest. A husband, friend, and Boulder, Colorado-based adventure wedding & elopement videographer & filmmaker. Overall, I’m a pretty chill person that enjoys the simpler, everyday, aspects of life, and try to incorporate those values into the films I make. Also, I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that you’re here and wish you all the best. In the meantime, take a look around, watch a film (or five), get the feels, and have a little mental vacation from planning your elopement or wedding.
For Colorado elopements & weddings I offer photography and videography services starting at 4-hours of coverage (travel costs included in pricing). In addition, I can also act as your elopement planner, guide, etc. for your elopement or wedding, and be there to help wherever you might need me. Once we start the planning process, you’ll have full access to my Colorado planning portal that’s fully equipped with vendor recommendations, Colorado-specific elopement guides, as well as travel & timeline assistance. You’ll also have full access to my detailed Google Map database that has thousands of pins for specific locations, in addition to screened places to stay, campsites, and a few extras to give you a better idea of Colorado landscapes & options.
For Colorado Elopements & Intimate Weddings
I’m Francis, A Colorado, USA Based elopement filmmaker who specializes in Colorado & Iceland elopements and weddings. Instead of trying to spread my location expertise thin by chasing the next best spot across the globe, I made the intentional decision to only shoot in the two places I love most, Iceland & Colorado (where I live full-time). This approach allows me to be an expert in these two locations for elopements & weddings, knowing the local culture, guidelines, and locations. Overall, it gives you the best & most authentic elopement experience possible, due to my years of experience and focused resources.
While still two separate businesses, I’ve teamed up with Lauren & Travis of Love, Lorraine (elopement photographers) to offer Colorado elopement photography and videography packages. Why? We’ve found that three minds work much better than just one or two. After meeting & finding that our views of elopements & adventure weddings were spot on with each other, it only made sense for us to collaborate and offer couples (you!) an elevated experience on your wedding day. Our top priority is to serve you well & give you the best wedding or elopement day you could imagine. With over 15 years of combined elopement & wedding experience, we’re here to help and know exactly how. Rest assured that planning your day will be a breeze, and the celebration of your elopement day will only be better.
How To Plan Your Colorado Elopement
Interested in eloping in Iceland but don’t know where to start? Below I’ve attached a link to some resources that will help you not only get this process started, but also show you how easy it actually is to elope in Iceland. From finding the perfect time to elope in Iceland to knowing where to stay & finding your locations, we’ll cover it all. If you’re just starting out, I’d highly suggest checking out This Guide, as it will give you a general overview of when, where, & how to elope in Iceland.
Eloping isn’t an everyday occurrence, so I don’t expect you to have all the answers. I’ll be there to help whenever you might need it and am always an open book to help give you the clarity you need. No question is a bad question, and unlimited consultation calls are included in every elopement videography & wedding videography package, so don’t hold back!
