    Our experience with Ebabil Photo was nothing short of perfect. My husband and I went back and forth about hiring a photographer at all, as our budget was tight and we were having a small wedding, but we are both so glad we decided to go with Ebabil. Our photographer Christian and his assistant were both fantastic from start to finish, and we could not have asked for a better team to capture our special day. Our wedding was a little offbeat, but we never felt like we were being rushed or persuaded to do things in a more traditional manner, which was a fear of mine in considering a wedding photographer. We ended up with so many wonderful photos and I am so grateful that we will have these beautiful memories to look back on. We cannot thank you enough for your amazing work, and we will continue to recommend Ebabil to all of our friends and family in the future!

    The Ebabil team worked closely with my spouse and I to get us the wedding video that we really wanted. The end result didn't feel like a cookie cutter video - our personalities were captured and I really appreciated that. Our video was given to us after the wedding in a very timely manner, and we were given the opportunity to review it to make small changes (we didn't make any changes because the end result was perfect). Even before booking, all of my questions were answered promptly and thoroughly so I felt confident once we booked. Sefa was great to work with on my wedding day and everyone in my family was truly touched by the video. Even better, Sefa worked extremely well with the other vendors at our wedding which I think is essential and demonstrated the level of professionalism he has. One of my bridesmaids has now booked Ebabil for her wedding after seeing how amazing Sefa was on my wedding day, and in the future I plan to work with Ebabil again.

    Ebabil thrilled and wowed us with all aspects of their services. Most importantly, their final product is stunning - Hollywood-quality work that was far beyond our high expectations.

    I had a fantastic experience for my our wedding with the videographers from Ebabil. Nick and Josh were so professional, worked very well with our photographer and other vendors, were very flexible with timing and last minute changes to our needs and our videos were amazing! We got links to our videos within a month of the wedding, closer to three weeks I believe. Highly recommended, good pricing and great team!

    Ebabil representative, Mr. Sefa Karatekin, was superb--highly competent and sophisticated service and technology, shared interest in creating an uncompromisingly professional and commercially-profitable product--in my case, a high-resolution videotape and audio of a national artist's powerpoint presentation I make illustrating my working with the King Family to create and install a ten-foot, "Roots"-inspired bronze monument to Dr. King, entitled "Behold." Unveiled by Mrs. Coretta Scott King, actor John Amos (Kunta Kinte of "Roots miniseries) and myself on January 11, 1990 at the King National Historic Site in Atlanta, Georgia overlooking the tomb of Dr. King.

    Ebabil Film was the best photographer we could have hired! We really lucked out! Sefa and his team were so great. They showed up on the day of and made everyone feel comfortable and were so friendly and nice. They became "invisible" when they needed to and were excellent at giving direction. The response time is amazing, the turnaround time is lightening fast and the finished product is breathtaking!!!!!! I cannot recommend Ebabil Film more and I think the reviews speak for themselves. There's a reason everyone is so so happy. The talent here is amazing!!!! Thank you again for everything!!!

    An excellent team
    Sefa and the Ebabil Film team were wonderful to work with leading up to and during our wedding. Sefa was easy to access and communicate with via email, and was reassuring and professional. Josh and Faati were exactly what we wanted at the wedding- they were involved and friendly, but never overbearing or uncomfortable. We couldn't have asked for more. We're very pleased with our experience, and with the photos we've received from them. I would certainly recommend them to friends and family for any event.

    Only the best
    I hired Jonas for a birthday event for my daughter's 16th birthday, she's my only daughter and they only have one chance at a great Sweet 16 Party. We had a big hall with 100+ guests, but somehow he managed to capture everyone at least once in our videos. I knew that I made the right choice as soon as they arrived and got down to business, very professional, courteous and time efficient because the party was only 3 hours. I didn't know he could capture so much footage in so little time, the party seemed to fly by but our videos will last forever! Great pricing, and got back to me with a package righy away. Very pleased with the fact he consulted and interacted with my guests. I've hired videographers in the past for other events, but Ebabil has forever changed my outlook on what videos should be! Will definitely be hiring them again in the future for other events, and will be recommending to all my family and friends for their events! More than pleased with my final cuts, and couldn't be any happier hiring anybody else. Thank you all so much for capturing my daughter's once in a lifetime party, will be in touch soon for my next party!

    A Skilled Photographer who can shoot many different backdrops!
    I suggested Sefa to be the wedding photographer of an outdoor wedding I was planning and the couple was so happy to have selected Sefa on their special day. Sefa is a phenomenal Photographer. He has a very welcoming energy that made the couple feel as if he was a close friend who was shooting their day. Guests and the bridal party enjoyed interacting with him, it was clear he had thought about creating different shots and was just a joy to work with. From a professional standpoint - He delivered the photos in a timely manner. I appreciated his timeliness and willingness to improvise given that he was shooting on a massive farm with many different backdrops ( outdoors, in a huge tent, in a barn with moody lighting, on a hilltop etc) and he was able to adjust and capture the vibe of the entire day and took really lovely shots. If you're searching for a skilled photographer with a keen eye, and warm energy to capture a life moment in your life, I highly recommend Sefa! I would without a doubt hire him for future events!

We look forward to hearing from you soon and working with you again in the future! Best Wishes, Ebabil Video & Photo Productions

    Capturing the love, fun and excitement of a beautiful wedding day.
    My experience was fabulous. Stefa did an incredible job capturing the fun, love and excitement at my daughter's wedding. Ebabil film and video production was great to work with. Very personable. When they said the videos were ready, they delivered on time. Sefa and his team created a memorable video that we will have forever. All the friends and family that viewed the video were so happy and so complimentary about capturing the moment. I highly recommend Ebabil Film and Video Production.

    Nice!
    I hired Sefa and his crew from Ebabil Film & Video Production for my daughter’s wedding. Although I have not yet seen the final product, I can confirm that they were really wonderful to work with and I am so glad that I selected them from the very many videographers I researched. Sefa was very responsive to all my questions prior to the wedding & on the wedding day, Sefa & his team were prompt, patient, so pleasant, not at all intrusive, yet right where they needed to be all the time. Prior to selecting Ebabil, I asked Sefa if he would be willing to do guest interviews at the wedding. Sefa agreed and even accepted a list of interview questions that he printed and allowed the quests to view before putting them in front of the camera. He made all the guests very comfortable. Sefa made sure I approved the timing and location of the interviews and made sure there was someone always videoing what was happening on the dance floor when the interviews were happening. At the end of the evening, the crew was even willing to stay on longer than contracted to capture the last song & the bride & groom’s departure. I personally liked Sefa & crew. After sharing one of the most important days of my family’s life with this team, I felt like they had become family. I am very much looking forward to & excited to see the final product.

    I wanted to thank Ebabil Film for the amazing service. I have no idea about wedding videos and I found their website online. I really liked their style, it was not a cliche wedding video and it was what I would like for our wedding too. There were two videographers and we didn’t even feel they were there. The communication was great, they gave me several options to pick color tones and took my comments into consideration. The video was ready when we came back from our honeymoon and it looked great. Thank you! Olga Katkova
