Vlad Chaloupka

Vlad and Ben have been friends ever since Vlad lent Ben a camera lens while the two were shooting a basketball game for their respective newspapers when Ben was still in college. Since then, Vlad has filmed weddings all over the world alongside the photographers of Chrisman Studios. He even filmed Ben and Erin’s weddings in Las Vegas and Mexico.

Vlad’s wedding films are in a league of their own, thanks to his sophisticated style and eye for subtle, tender and hilarious moments that would otherwise go unnoticed. Vlad’s films show couples as they truly are – beautiful, happy, funny, at times tearful, at times tipsy, at times nervous, and often overcome with joy. Weddings are a blend of all those emotions, and your film will remind you – over and over again – what a deliriously wonderful weekend you experienced with the people you love most.

Vlad lives in Santa Fe, New Mexico, with his wife Rachel and daughter Mira. In September 2020, Vlad won an Emmy for his work with Wildlife Without Borders.
