I absolutely HAVE to give the photographer and his wife (the videographer) 5 stars. I can't explain the amount of great service they gave out. They made my wedding day spectacular. They were on time and so very professional. They did such a wonderful job telling me and everyone how to pose. Not rude whatsoever. Very nice and felt as if they were long time friends of ours. Things happen the day of and they just rolled with the punches just like I had to. They just did their job and made sure I was happy and got as many photos as possible. So many other people complimented them as well.
Wow, I could not have asked for a better partner on my project than Isaiah! From the start, he was extremely professional, sincere and attentive. My project wasn't a huge one but he still gave it as much attention as if it were a 4-figure one and that is beyond appreciated. Technically, Isaiah created a work of art. I had a previous video created for me by another videographer/editor on Thumbtack and didn't have the best experience, technically. But Isaiah brought his A-game. Technically, creatively and professionally. He edited speedily and well, tweaked lighting and made all the clips flow nicely. He was a delight to work with, and I cannot recommend him more highly on every level. I'm definitely calling him as my looming next projects arise, and have already sent his name along to colleagues in the advertising field as a guy they want to entrust their work to. Thank you Isaiah!!
I can't say enough lovely things about All Corporate Video and Photo. Mike Kozuchowski was so fantastic to work with- I was looking for a last minute photographer for an event I was throwing only a few days before the event. Mike was nothing but professional, easy to work with and went above and beyond what was asked of him. I will definitely work with him again in the future, when another project comes up and I highly recommend to anyone that is looking for a photographer and or a videographer. Thanks Mike!
Great videographer. Arrived earlier, prepped me well, was super congenial but unobtrusive through the event, and turned around quality work.
Vic was one of our favorite vendors, if not our best for our wedding. This review is long overdue (almost a year) but I just had to leave a review. He is tremendously easy to work with, he's tireless in his work and most importantly got the job done. I asked him for the raw files on a usb drive that I provided and he was perfectly fine with that too. Some studios charge a fortune just for that service! He provides tremendous value and does the work of 2 to 3 people. He's very flexible in his dealings and will work with you until you are satisfied. Our wedding photographer was admittedly a bit bossy but Vic was able to work around her and avoided any wedding day drama that could ruined the day. I'll recommend him anytime someone asks for suggestions on a videographer. A lot of the videographers on thumbtack didn't match the type of style we were looking for and to be honest they were just too cheesy or overly produced. Think star wipe/lens flare unnecessary effects but Vic's style suited us. Check out his sample videos. Really, look no further than Vic to handle your video/ photo needs. On top of that, he's a really nice guy.
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.
Kevin was amazing! Great communication! Made sure to capture all important moments... didn't minute to minute us... pretty sure he went over his time to accommodate our day and capture everything! I spent so many days searching for a talented, affordable videographer and Kevin's work was everything we hoped for and more!
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.
We had our wedding photography and videography through Vivid. We absolutely loved working with Paola! She is so talented and amazing. Paola is so passionate about her work, and it shows in how she runs her business and treats her clients. She is professional, friendly and genuinely cares about her clients. By the end of our wedding day Paola really felt like part of the family!
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.
Garrett is absolutely wonderful to work with! One of my main concerns as a bride was to find a trustworthy and reliable vendor and he met every one of my concerns! Garrett offered creative ideas and was open to my ideas and incorporating them into the video. He is very reasonably priced and really impressed me with his ideas, sincerity and reliability. I haven't seen the finished product yet, but I'm sure Garrett will do an amazing job. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a wedding videographer!!!
Dan was very professional and his vidiography of a master's vocal recital at Northwestern exceeded our expectations. I would highly recommend Dan as a videographer.
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!
I cannot say enough good things about Tom and Blink of an Eye Productions. He originally did my sister's wedding video in 2009--a video we STILL watch time and time again at family gatherings. He did such a great job that I knew I'd want him to do my own wedding video (even 6 years later)! For starters, Tom is an absolute professional! He was on time; prepared; well-dressed (my bridesmaids were swooning over him!); and so accommodating. By far one of my best vendors! He was perfect the day of my wedding, as was his other cinematographer (TIP: Hire the 2nd cinematographer for the day so both Bride/Groom can have constant video coverage). I swear hes like a ninja because he would blend in with the crowd and always maintain the perfect distance to allow us to experience our special wedding moments, while being able to capture it all the same. Most of the time I forgot he was even there. He also chose to stay and film my wedding at least an hour later than we agreed because he wanted to make sure he had everything he needed to guarantee our satisfaction. That detail alone would make me choose Tom over every other videographer. Its simple, he CARES about his clients and their happiness. He isnt there to just get some shots, leave, and make a stock video of your wedding. Hes an artist who is constantly inspired by his surroundings and wants to be sure he has everything he needs to deliver a product that is tailor made to each Bride and Groom. What more could you ask for?? Not only was Tom great to work with on the day of our wedding, but he was wonderful both pre and post wedding. He is super on top of things and has great communication with the client. And the end product (our wedding video) was nothing short of spectacular. I have NO idea how he took our 10+ hour day and edited it so beautifully. He has an amazing talent for detail and edits together your best moments to create a seamless story that you want to watch again and again. He captured moments that I didnt even know existed. As a person in the film industry, I have a very high bar for quality of film. Tom surpassed my expectations and delivered my wedding in an art form that I can forever cherish. I am beyond grateful for all of his efforts. Because of him, I have the great pleasure of being able to relive the happiest day of my life anytime I please. Do yourself a favor and hire Tom to capture your wedding day! I guarantee he will end up being one of your favorite vendors, too!
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.
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 made a Christmas Vacation video for my family and I. We had many hours of footage from the DSLR camera as well as Iphone 6. We described what kind of video we wanted to make and Carisma's work has exceeded our expectations!
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!
