We are The Benham's
We will work for tacos + we'll travel for margs
Hi there! We are Seth and Kaitlyn Benham. A little back story about us… we are two high school sweethearts who live in our hometown of Grants Pass, Oregon close to our family + friends. Our house is filled with sweet baby giggles from our nine month old baby girl, Ellison + lots + lots + LOTS of dog hair from our Aussie, Maverick. We love snowboarding, coffee, summer nights, cold brewski’s, anything you can put on a Traeger, our little family and above all things Jesus. I was fifteen when Seth and I met (he was 17) and he’s been sweeping me off my feet ever since. We’ve been together for 7 years + there is no one I’d rather do life with.
We have been in the video production and marketing industry together for over 5 years + have been in the wedding industry for 3 years. Seth is my co-pilot, (my literal drone pilot), he’s my filming guru, my best friend, and is constantly finding new ways to film and new gear to purchase. He can’t help himself, he loves gear lol! He’s the hardest worker I know. He’s always there to lend a helping hand even though he has his own business to worry about – Novum Visuals.
For me, I love weddings. I love love, marriage + the intimacy of it all. I think God designed this covenant for a reason – because it truly is one of the most beautiful and sacred things ever. While Seth + I team up to film weddings, I do all the editing in house myself. I care deeply about the couples we get the joy of working with and I have a blast creating something that will last a lifetime.
Seth + I will go above and beyond for people especially as business owners. We are so thankful to be able to do what we do + we hope to be able to work with you.
We can't thank all of our clients enough for trusting us to capture their wedding day in all it's glory - because of you we are able to do what we love all while raising and supporting our little family.
\"... forever our most cherished gift\"
Our wedding video will forever be our most cherished gift! Kaitlyn + Seth captured so much of the emotion we felt and every time we watch our video it brings us RIGHT back to our best day ever. I'm moved to tears every time I watch it....EVERY TIME (& let me tell you I'm not typically a crier). You will NOT regret booking Forever Films -- they are literally the BEST (!!)
Kaitlyn & Seth are two of the kindest, hard working couples I have ever came across. Working in events, I come across a lot of vendors - and these two just get it! They will go above and beyond for their clients to give them the best possible outcome. They have an eye for being at the right place at the right time to get the right shot. They have given us memories that will last forever - and they truly cater to their clients. Their \"video guest book\" is such a fun addition to any social event. I can't thank these two enough! HIRE THEM!
Kaitlyn at Forever Films is friendly, professional, and passionate. The video she made captured our wedding perfectly. She did such a wonderful job at capturing every important moment. Kaitlyn is a master of her craft and is the absolute best choice for a wedding videographer
I seriously cannot believe how beautiful and elegant our wedding video turned out. Kaitlyn and Seth are wonderful people, I couldn’t have asked for a better videography team! And to think we almost decided not to have video. I am so pleased with the work they did, they even gave us a little engraved box with our names on it along with stills and our video. All hand delivered!! The video Forever Films put together for us surpassed our expectations. They were able to capture a natural flow and beauty of our crazy wedding day! We will forever use Forever Films for our filming needs!
5 stars 100%, all the way.
I debated for months and months (and months) about hiring a videographer for our wedding and when I contacted Kaitlyn, there was not a doubt in my mind that this HAD TO HAPPEN, and her and her hubby were the ONES.
I had seen a previous video of theirs, and knew immediately I wanted the same thing. Something that I can look back on and truly feel in the moment again. She (and Seth!!) delivered that and more. She listened to EVERY request and captured every moment perfectly. You hardly noticed they were even there, even if by the end we wanted them to be a PART of it, and join in on the celebration!
I would recommend this duo to any and every couple. I cannot describe enough how grateful we are to have had them there with us to document our day. The price is fantastic, their work is incredible.
I can't say enough good things about Kaitlyn and Seth !! They are so amazing and kaitlyn is so adorable, I felt like she was one of my best friends by the end of it which is exactly what you want when you are letting someone be a part of such a big day in your life !! I will recommend her to everyone I know !!
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you travel/accept destination weddings?
Absolutely! We love to travel + see new places + meet new people. When inquiring with a destination wedding, we will break down everything for you and if a travel fee is associated - it will be included in our pricing making it stress-free for you. We don't always require a travel fee to certain areas in the country (also outside the US). So check with us first! We also will book all our own flights, airbnb, etc!
How do I book you or what is required to book?
I love to get to know my clients a little before booking! I think it's important that you feel I'm definitely the right fit for you. Once we've chatted, Facetimed, met up (all the things) we send out a wedding packet that has all the info you'll need as well as helpful guides + lists of recommended professionals. We require a signed contract + a 20% booking deposit to reserve your date and will not hold your date until both are completed.
How long will it take to get my wedding video back?
It depends on the time of year you choose to get married. During busy season, it can take me average of 4 -12 weeks depending on our calendar. I edit weddings in the order I received them and post editing queue updates. While you're waiting, you'll receive a teaser video as well as your video guestbook (if you choose to get one)
How does my wedding video get delivered?
At first, we will email you a Dropbox link + then once your wedding box, thumb drive + stills come in the mail - we'll send you the goods for safe keeping + storing.
Do you allow custom packages?
Absolutely. We know not every wedding or elopement is the same so we have no problem creating a package that specifically fits your #weddingvideogoals!
