About Us

Focused Story Films has been capturing special days since 2012. We began in St. Louis, and in 2013 traveled to Kansas City. It wasn’t long before we began capturing weddings around the greater Kansas City area. The joy of being able to experience the special moments between couples and their families on their wedding day is indescribable. We love our couples and love the art of creating amazing wedding films.

Owner and lead cinematographer Brian Elliott got his start in film early on and attended the film program at Southwestern Illinois College just outside of St. Louis. He approaches weddings from a cinematic and story background, always eager to create films that emotionally connect with the couples they are for.

“My favorite moment of the whole process is when I can sit down with a couple and show them their wedding film for the first time, and I get to see the bride cry with joy, remembering the beauty of her day.” – Brian Elliott

We’d love to have a conversation with you about how we can impact your day and life with amazing wedding cinematography.
