Preserving memories and creating stories through video production is my passion. My goal is to make your vision a reality. I produce everything from weddings to television commercials to property tours. My experience includes NBC, Sony, MTV and WWE. Then, in 2009 I was ready to start my own company and Alyson Films, LLC was born. I truly love what I do and pride myself on that shining through every single project I take on. 

Are you or someone you know getting married? I produce weddings by capturing and editing love stories. There’s no better way to preserve those precious memories and really take you back in time to that day like a wedding video by Alyson Films, LLC. You'll have an entertaining keepsake that will be exciting everytime you watch it for years and generations to come. Alyson Films, LLC is there for you on the big day for as many hours as you'd like. I shoot everything with several camera angles so we don't miss a moment or emotion. Alyson Films, LLC provides you with cinematic (highlight film) and/ or documentary style (professionally shot footage of every moment that you would like captured creatively edited and broken down into chapters: Bride and Groom Preparations, Ceremony, Cocktail Hour, Formal Photos, First Dance, etc.). Your wedding video which is delivered electronically as well as available on DVD, flash drive or Blu-Ray is easy to navigate while still providing you with any "chapter" of your love story you want to relive. A picture is worth a thousand words but a video is worth a million!  I can also capture any other special events you may have such as anniversary parties, dance recitals, seminars, speaking engagements, conferences, Bar Mitzvahs, birthday videos, etc.  

If you're looking for a way to easily show your potential clients who you are or showcase your business I can create an engaging professional website video for you! If a commercial or infomercial is what you need you came to the right place. I'll work along side you to bring your vision and ideas to life. 

Are you trying to sell your home or rent a vacation property? I can create Travel Channel/ HGTV style property tours videos! And if you want to take your business, company or self to the next level the best way to showcase that is through a professional company website video, commercial or reel.

From the tabs above you’ll find many examples of the various types of videos I can produce. I shoot broadcast quality high-definition video with numerous types of cameras, lighting and microphones to get the best product possible.

While planning our wedding, I never wanted a videographer. We both felt we would never watch a video of ourselves as we both don't like our picture taken, never mind videos! Alyson films was gifted to us and we decided to just "go along" with it. Fast forward to our wedding day. Alyson and crew arrived and I barely knew they were there. I didn't feel uncomfortable at all. She discreetly filmed and was aware of the photographer and consulted with them as well, making the whole process stress free for us. When she emailed me the "preview" I bawled like a baby!! There was so much I had not seen, and would have NEVER had access to, with out her!!!! Our parents, our guests, our parties getting ready, the list goes on, all saved on video !!! Alyson Films had changed my mind about filming weddings and special events. My husband have been married for 7 months and have watched the video multiple times. I cry happy tears every time! You won't be disappointed with her work. Take it from a former "I don't want a videographer" girl!!!

The high quality of work Alyson Grisham has produced for our company is surprisingly affordable. Alyson takes her work seriously and with the use of the latest HD Movie Camera technology, the finish product gives the impression of the work of a large film studio. Alyson is so meticulous in creating stylishly presented films that we have used her on four separate projects and would recommend her without a shadow of a doubt.

Working with Alyson by far was the best thing we could of done. She was always very pleasant and cheerful and made us feel like our wedding was her ONLY priority. Alyson provided prompt response throughout the wedding planning process. She was flexible, prompt, easy to work with, and cares to do a good job on your special day. I would recommend Alyson for any event. I wish all of our vendors had the same attitude as Alyson. She paid attention to detail and the quality of work was awesome. The cost for her service is very reasonable. If I had to do it all over again I would hire Alyson in a heart beat. She's a professional who is not in this for money. She has a passion for what she does, and she will make sure you are 200% satisfied with her work. I say she does wonders without being in the way :) because the day of the wedding she captured every moment, yet never got in our way. She's an amazing videographer. I recommend her 100%.

Recently we  celebrated our 60th wedding anniversary.  We decided to have a DVD made about our 60 years together as a surprise gift for our children and grandchildren.  We called Alyson Grisham and engaged her to make it for us.  She certainly exceeded our expectations!  We dumped an enormous hodgepodge of photos on her and left it up to her to sequence and produce the film.  She put the pictures in order, interviewed us to explain and comment on the various pictures and then added appropriate music.  We gave the film its premiere at our family anniversary party.  Our three daughters and our granddaughter were soon in tears followed by roars of laughter.  They were not the only misty eyed ones in the room.  Soon an entire box of tissues was used.  We had copies made for all our children and grandchildren and for family members who could not be present.  All of us were delighted with the beautiful and professional presentation.  Our family members told us how happy they were to have our history for future generations.  We would highly recommend for any family occasion.  You will certainly be pleased.

We were looking to add something special to our VRBO site to attract more inquiries. Fortunately we found Alyson Films. Alyson met my wife at our beach house and did an amazing video. Alyson did most of the audio, but my wife did a part about how our grandchildren loved the house and area. I thought that added a great deal. This was a wonderful thought by Alyson. The video was just perfect. We added it to our site and our calls and booking increased markedly. I would highly recommend Alyson to any property owner looking for a way to increase traffic at a very reasonable price. She worked with us from beginning to finished product for a single price. Thanks Alyson for your work. Leroy

We highly recommend Alyson as a wedding videographer. She is great at her work and really talented with her ideas of what to capture. She responded quickly to all of our questions and really made sure she captured what we envisioned. You could barely tell Alyson was filming, as she makes sure she never gets in your way. She worked really well with our photographer too.

I'd been thinking about having a video done of my Palm Beach Vacation rental  for some time. But where do I start? Then I got an email from Alyson asking if I wanted a video done! Alyson showed up for the video shoot, actually Todd her husband also showed up, 2 for the price of one! They were professional and went right to work. They asked a few questions but mostly Alyson worked independently on script, where to shoot, etc. Alyson did a super job. A couple of weeks later she sent me a draft of the video which I sent to about 20 people friends and business associates and asked their opinion. They ALL ranted and raved how great it was and that they would not change a thing. So it was a wrap!
The best way to standout among all the vacation rental listings is to have a video done by Alyson Films. Alyson is professional, experienced and skillful. I highly recommend Alyson (and Todd) to shoot and produce your next video.Thanks Alyson for a GREAT JOB!!

Alyson, Thank you so much for making my farewell DVD.  Every time I watch it I laugh and laugh.  You did an excellent job making the DVD.

Recently, Alyson completed a video of my house on Ono Island. She did a great job and was able to convey benefits of thehouse more easily than we could describe or anyone would read. What impressed me even more is how she was able to do her work independently without much input for me. I expected to be available, but life happens and I was pulled away and had to deal with other issues. She is experienced, skilled and very professional. Having a video by Alyson would be an asset to renting any property.

My business partner May and I own a Gulf front condo in Pensacola Beach at the Beach Club Resort & Spa. We hired to do a YouTube video to help promote our condo. I am happy to say that we are thrilled with the results! Alyson and her team were easy to work with, flexible, dependable, and efficient. She made the entire experience fun and seamless to us. From the filming, to the music, to the voiceover and post production editing, she took ownership of the entire process, yet also allowed us to creative direct where we wanted to. The video has already gained us new bookings and everyone we send it to loves it. There is no better way to stand out among the hundreds of other vacation properties. We wholeheartedly recommend to shoot and produce your next video!

Ron and I are so pleased with the job you did.  We showed it to friends and they thought the Travel Channel was highlighting our condo! You have such a great voice!!

Alyson and her team were such a pleasure to work with for our wedding. She made herself available for us to chat many times and answer any questions we had before we made the decision to book her. She worked seamlessly with our photographers day-of. We picked a package that had Alyson and her assistant with handheld cameras along with two stationary cameras at the ceremony. She really captured everything. We loved the highlight reel that she put together, using songs we selected, as well as the extended footage DVD that includes hours of footage from the entire day. My wife is extremely organized and particular when it came to vision for the wedding and Alyson and her crew did a wonderful job working with us in advance, nailing the executing on the day of our wedding and delivering exceptional finished products. We cannot recommend her enough!

I have a lake house on VRBO and Alyson did a video for me a couple of months ago. It's amazing the difference it has made in our rentals. I have tons of pictures of the house but they just don't give as good an idea of how the property looks like a live video. If you've ever rented a place and it's turned out to be horrible you how important it is to see what you're getting for your money. I have a virtual tour of another property and that isn't as effective as a video either. It cost 4 times as much too. They were great to work with and the video is very, very professional looking. I highly recommend Alyson. It will pay for itself many times over.

Alyson, You are truly a talented and caring person when it comes to making your videos. Every detail that needs to be communicated is included, music is always just right, and sound effects at just the right moment. Our Germany trip video, your wedding entrance music and voice over, and the video for Pastor Tim's last Sunday were excellent! They make such lasting memories of such happy times together. We've had so many people ask us about those videos and how they want something like that for their family function and how can they contact you. Keep up the great work!
