You deserve to feel safe, seen, and affirmed on your wedding day.  That's why I take great care to make sure your voice is heard throughout the entire process. From gathering a list of the loved ones you want (and DON'T want) included, to your taste in music, to what I should wear to your wedding, your vision is the captain of this ship. I'm also pretty fun to hang out with :)

Videographers in chicago area

silly + sentimental wedding films for non-traditional lovers. 

Replogle Studios is a Chicago-based wedding videography studio serving lovers all over Illinois, the midwest, and beyond! We are LGBTQ+ owned and affirming, we believe that Black Lives Matter, and we will enthusiastically celebrate all bodies, abilities, races, genders, sizes, and orientations.

The Replogle Experience

Affirmation at every turn.

Authentic portrayals of you and your partner.

Affection centered around consent.

I’m not just a bomb-ass videographer, I’m also a great hype man. Being filmed is a vulnerable experience, and that is something I keep in mind with every client I work with. My affirmations are specific, and always genuine.

I’ll never ask you to betray yourself with inauthentic poses or actions. As a non-binary person, gendered poses have always felt smothering to me, so it matters to me that there is room to breathe.

You and your partner will have full freedom to choose the level of spiciness that you feel comfortable displaying on camera. You’ll never hear pressure from me to do something you don’t want to.

"Ray has become a lifelong friend and every step of their client experience felt personalized, true to us, and was obviously crafted with expertise and care. They went so far above and beyond for us, I feel a little silly that we ever considered booking anyone else for our wedding videography. Anyone (but LGBTQ+ people especially) would be lucky to have Ray capturing their wedding memories."

Jenni & Ali

"As a queer couple, it’s priceless to have that kind of support and empowerment from your vendor team."

"I cannot express how grateful I am to Ray! They took my engagement photos and filmed the video for my wedding. When some things out of anyone's control fell through for my wedding, Ray went above and beyond to make sure we had the best experience we could!  I highly recommend Replogle Studios; you will not be disappointed!"

Elizabeth and Ethan

"Professional, artistic, skilled — Ray is phenomenal!"

Cannot recommend Ray enough. The energy, enthusiasm, engagement were all off the charts. We had a pretty fun, rowdy group for our NYE wedding, and Ray was the perfect videographer for us.  They made suggestions/gave feedback the perfect amount--enough to be engaged but not pushy. One of the reasons our wedding was so special was the vendors we chose, and Ray is at the top of that list.

Sean and Bridget

"They were very active, getting tons of different angles + shots, somehow everywhere without being in the way."

This is how we do it




How long does it take to get the video after the wedding?

Why are wedding videos so expensive?

Short answer: the average wedding video cost about $1,900 in 2021, and I make above average work. Long answer: Wedding videos in general may seem expensive to most people, and that might be because professional video as a medium is usually only purchased by businesses, who pay between $1,000 - $10,000 per minute of final video. Comparatively, wedding videography is significantly scaled down, while maintaining a professional look, allowing it to be cheap in context, but expensive to the everyday individual. 

Do you have payment plans?

Uhh, in this economy? Yes! I have multiple payment plan options available, just ask! I want to work with you to make my services as accessible as possible!

Are wedding videos worth the money?

I'm obviously biased, but I believe the sound of your vows, the rare footage of everyone you love in one place, and the voices of elders in particular are priceless. 

Do you do photography?

No, I only do videography, but I do have a photo + video package with Tawny Ballard Photography,  I can also highly recommend many incredible wedding photographers across the country. 

Are you gay?

Yeah, what gave it away?

It can take up to 90 days after the wedding to edit, depending on the package you get and the time of year (late fall and large packages taking up more of the full 90 days, and smaller packages earlier in the season taking less time!)
