I’m Ariana, the owner of Everness Films.
It's hard to sum up everything about myself in such a small space, but here goes nothing!
CONNECTION - COMPASSION - CREATIVITY
I strive to live a balanced life & these three values are what keep me grounded & calibrated in the direction that feels most authentic to me.
Family and friends are the foundation of my life, and I am grateful for the love and support they bring. Alongside my partner Kaden, with whom I share a loving relationship of six years, I call North Vancouver home. Our household is complete with our two kitties As East-Coasters, maintaining strong connections to our roots and taking time to visit home is a priority for us.
I am deeply committed to making a positive impact on the world, from reducing harm to the environment and promoting social justice to being mindful of my consumption habits. For over a decade, I've followed a vegan lifestyle and for over fifteen years, I've been vegetarian for ethical reasons. Inclusivity is also central to my belief system and I strive to create a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere in all aspects of my business.
Creativity takes shape in many different ways. Filmmaking has always had my heart, but I also dabble in a million creative hobbies such as; sewing, singing, dancing, painting, acting, etc. Alongside weddings, I also work towards chasing my dreams as a female director in the film industry. Dabbling in all of these interests gives me somewhat of a creative edge. I pull inspiration from a million places, which means everything I create is fully unique and created with the most carefulness possible.
I identify and operate my life through my values, so it feels appropriate to share them with my clients.
Opening my first digital video camera at 10 years old
Video has always been a huge part of my life.
Growing up, video was my outlet for creative expression and brought me and my friends closer together.
As I started getting older, I began cherishing the films that my family & I had taken. I realized how privileged we were to have to many videos of ourselves growing up.
In 2021, I finally got access to the digital copies of the VHS tapes & childhood videos I made & was able to create a full film of my life up until the age of 23 & gift it to my parents.
The film of my life.
This film of mine is quite intimate, it includes pretty much every big part of my life. But I felt like sharing it would help me connect on a deeper level with my clients.
I realize how vulnerable and scary a wedding can be & I want my couples to feel as comfortable as possible around me.
I don't edit with a template because I believe that every single couple is unique and deserves to have their story shared in a way that is meaningful to them.
I take eight to twelve weddings per year to make sure I can give my full attention to every couple I take on.
As someone who is a bit awkward herself, comfortability is very important to me. I will do everything in my power to make you feel like yourself in front of the camera.
