My interest in filmmaking runs deep.

Hi friend. I'm Ellen Dziubek, a filmmaker based in Ohio but oh-so-willing to travel to wherever my work may take me.

 

My mom will tell you that ever since I was little, I was asking to hold the camcorder. I have been creating ever since. My eye for imagery remains very much the same as it was when I was eleven years old in possession of my first digital camera. Visual storytelling has always been a part of me, and it's impossible to imagine myself doing anything else.

 

I am an observational documentarian through and through, so for me, it isn't about the bells and whistles. I revel in recording the raw, silly moments. I want to capture what happens as it unfolds. Most importantly, I aim to focus on your unique story, your you-ness.

Featured Wedding Film:
Cortnee + Jon

Cortnee and Jon had a small outdoor wedding ceremony and barn reception at a beautiful venue. The image of that first dance with their two kids will be forever etched in my mind. These two party hard and love hard. I love how you could feel such strong senses of commitment and contentment between the two of them. throughout the day.

It’s hard to put into words how much I loved creating this special little film. I had been wanting to film a birth for years and when she reached out I was ecstatic! Kristin and Joel could not have been more sweet and accommodating. What an incredibly special thing to be a part of. Something I will remember for the rest of my life.

“We could not have asked for a better videographer for our wedding day! Ellen is such a gem and so fun to work with. Her kind-hearted, warm spirit provided us with such ease throughout the day. It was very evident that she truly cared about us and made sure our wedding day was fun and ran smoothly. We loved how she captured the natural moments throughout the day and didn’t give us a ton of poses or things to do for the video footage. She wanted the candid shots and we loved that. Ellen is incredibly talented at what she does - we are in awe at the sneak peak she provided the day after our wedding and CANNOT wait to get the full video! If you’re looking for a videographer for your wedding, then Ellen is your girl.”
