I got engaged on December 24th 2012 and married on May 4th of this year and as I was looking for a photographer/videographer needed someone fast and reasonable in price. I came across thumbtack and I found you guys and Im so glad I did! Working with you and your wife was so easy and so much fun. We never felt rushed or that you were just trying to eat up the time to get more money lol. It was like you really care and wanted to do the best job while staying with in our budget, thats honorable. I love your work and your professionalism. The way you were able to capture every big and important moment is so amazing. Even as we was running out of time you two stayed calm, flexible and made it work lol. I have never seen a married couple work so well together you two are good. The wife and I love the photos, the video and it was all for a very reasonable price. I have been showing everyone and your work always get great reviews. Thank God for you may you have great success in all you do.
Where do I begin - well, let's just say that all my groomsmen and all of the bridesmaids that have yet to get married swore that they will be using Velvet Oaks for their weddings. The only problem will be booking them in time because of how great they are. Joe and the rest of his team are true professionals with amazing vision. Being the groom, I had enough to think about and didn't even think to worry about the videographers - luckily, I had the best ones around. From the start of our special day until the very end, we had a camera man following use to capture every moment we wanted captured. When we saw the trailer of our wedding video (I recommend you pay for it - well worth it), my wife and I were floored. We couldn't wait for the full video - when we saw the full video, we forgot how much took place and some stuff we didn't even get to see. Luckily it was beautifully captured. If you really need to, look around first and then chat with Velvet Oaks - but you'll be wasting your time talking to others as you will end up booking these guys. A+
Isaiah did an AMAZING job filming my wedding!! My family loves to watch the video and reminisce and relive the whole day! I couldn't be happier with all of his work for our special day!!
Great videographer. Arrived earlier, prepped me well, was super congenial but unobtrusive through the event, and turned around quality work.
Ed was fantastic... I cannot recommend him enough - from the professionalism, to the creativity, time management, flexibility, and dedication to the project - he was flawless throughout the entire process. We had a lot of specifications and without hesitation he created solutions when presented with constraints. Ed delivered the final product a week ahead of schedule and exceeded expectations at every opportunity. Without a doubt, Ed will be my first call for all future projects. Ed is truly in a league of his own. A class act, incredible videographer, and brilliant team member - Ed is a master in his craft and Homesick Blues Productions is by far the best decision you can make for your film project.
If you have a chance to work with Kevin you must! He does absolutely beautiful work and is extremely responsive. We needed to complete 2 corporate video testimonials and he was extremely professional and even helped me with managing a distracted client. I would hire him again shall we need a videographer in area.
I had been working with Harry to prepare for filming our wedding this Friday. We set up a meeting three days before the wedding date at which he said we no longer need a contract and demanded the entire payment for the project up front. This was the first time I had heard of this and I was thrown off by how it came out of the blue. Nowhere in his e-mails, website, contract, or in any of our conversation did it come up that he requires payment up front. I told him I was willing to give half and he told me that "That's not how I do buisness." He said that people usually pay him when he shows up to do the job. I agreed and said I would pay him half and how and half the day of the job. He said "that's not how I do business." He said he was sure I could find someone else to work with and got up and walked out of the restaurant. I was stunned! He has not returned any of my calls, e-mails, or texts. He has the right to ask for whatever terms he wants, but he needs to make that clear up front or put it in the contract, not drop it into a conversation three day before the wedding and then walk out when I question him. It was especially weird in that it came right after telling me he doesn't need a contract. It felt very off to me. I was not comfortable paying him in full under the circumstances and I felt like I was being railroaded into a last-minute bait and switch. He was unwilling to talk about it, negotiate, or show any sign of professionalism or care. He walked out as soon as he didn't get his way. I am angry that I am three days out from my wedding and I have no videographer! I did not see this coming!
We made a last minute decision to hire a videographer for a big birthday bash that would have many dignitaries in attendance. Eugene was hired. He attended my father's 80th birthday party at a posh downtown restaurant in Chicago so that he could create a video of the event, including lengthy speeches during a presentation. Also asked Eugene to record well wishes on video from the guests and create a shorter video montage. This involved approaching party attendees and recording them on the spot throughout the night, which took some initiative, and Eugene did this beautifully. Also created a highlight video of the overall party that was a great share on social media. Eugene really met the task of getting the footage I needed from this event beautifully. You only get one shot for live events! The 3 videos that were the outcome of this black tie event were well edited and very thoughtfully produced for us by Eugene. It's not just about recording the event, there was some artistry involved in deciding what to use, adding music and how to edit it all together. Eugene was very pleasant to work with and my entire family was pleased with his work. Thanks for capturing our special night so well.
We used Jeff to film video footage and create videos for our corporate event. He did a fantastic job, and we were very pleased. I highly recommend him as a talented professional videographer who is easy to work with.
My wife and I had the pleasure of having Stuart as our videographer for our wedding. The video could not have turned out better. He captures every great moment and it really makes you feel like you are there living it all over again. The quality and functionality are both fantastic as well. We can't thank Stuart enough for giving us something that will help us relive our special day forever!
Erika did an awesome job! She specializes in music videos and was a great fit for our band. She has integrity and is knowledgeable with a great work ethic that goes above and beyond. She took pride in her work and used her expertise in choosing the best shots that complimented our group. We would use her services again and recommend her if you need an experienced videographer.
David has been just fabulous. He made himself available short notice for a shoot on a Saturday, which was great. He is great at communication, too - always gets back to you very quickly and when we requested small changes to the finished product he obliged promptly. I would recommend David to anyone looking for a talented and responsive videographer.
Paola and Vivid Photo and Video were everything you could ever want from a special event videographer. From the moment we stumbled upon Paola's excellent work and contacted her, she was extremely responsive and professional. She is talented and passionate about what she does.On the day of the wedding a team of two worked the entire time without stopping. They did an amazing job - truly capturing our wedding. We ended up with an exceptional highlight video and full film. To me, the quality of their work is equal to that of a much higher price point. We will always be thankful for being able to see more of the wedding day and to be able to share that experience with our family. I will recommend her to anyone and everyone I can. Thank you Paula!
I highly recommend Drake as a videographer. Excellent work, timely responses and goes the extra mile. Very diligent and hard working. Could not be happier with his work on a recent family wedding!
This specific project was quite intense. It involves all day shooting and running around from a larger event to an exterior interview room. Sam, from White Fox Cinema, did a tremendous job. He was punctual to start the day and came extremely prepared. We've done a series of these videos and I could tell he watched our previous work in order to understand the type of shots we were looking for. Finding a freelance videographer to fill in on an already established production is not easy, like hiring a new employee, but we feel very lucky to have come across White Fox Cinema. We recommend White Fox for any job and we'll be doing business with him in the future.
To be completely truthful, working with Iconic Arts was a last minute decision for me, but one of the best vendor decisions of my wedding. Our original videographer ended up cancelling last minute due to a family emergency so we had to scramble to find someone that could take his spot. After speaking with 8 different companies, I got in touch with Iconic Arts. Initially, I spoke with Caleb who was polite, friendly, and professional. He asked me questions about the wedding, our interests, expectations, and vision, all with the goal of trying to make the video of our wedding day as perfect as possible. After our initial phone conversation, we scheduled an in-person meeting where we discussed the timeline of events, shooting style, locations, and required equipment. At this point, I thought that these guys were too good to be true. They were charging 1/2 the price of other videographers but were offering to do twice the work. Thus, I decided to call a good friend of mine who works in the industry and have him figure out if Caleb and Phil actually know what they are talking about. An hour later, I received a call from my friend who was completely blown away by the professionalism, knowledge, and experience of these gentleman. When the wedding day came, they did not disappoint. They were on time, had all of the required cameras and lighting equipment, were quick to set up at both the church and the reception venue, and mainly adjusted to the various locations where we took videos and photos. The guys worked for 14 hours and truly did an amazing job. One week later, as promised in the contract, they shared the raw, normalized footage with me that looked spectacular. I can't wait to see the final edited version. Thank you Caleb and Phil for properly documenting the most important day of my life!
I received a high quality and extremely clear video of a basketball game.
Anthony did a great job with editing and special effects for my feature film. Now Anthony is my go-to videographer for all my industrial videos and commercial work. Anthony is a very postive creative force. I highly recommend Caponeyboy Productions!
Carisma and her team did an excellent job with our wedding film. Amazing work and people. Me and my wife couldn't have asked for anything better. simply the BEST.
CLIX Imaging shot video for our wedding in May of 2014. They were very reasonably priced, and Eddie, our videographer, was very professional throughout the day, and captured the important moments while remaining unobtrusive. Would highly recommend.
Working with the team here was easy, professional and polished. I received exactly what was promised and was very happy with the videographer on site and his professionalism. Great vendor!
