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+
The Maestro Media did an amazing job capturing all the special moments of our wedding day. We could not be happier with their work. Videographer, Mark Condra, was there working right alongside the photographer, capturing every imaginable detail. He worked so well with us and with our other vendors, helping the day go exactly as planned. The final products are videos we cherish and will use in the years to come to relive our wedding day. They gave us a copy of the full ceremony, footage of the toasts & first dances, a surprise shoutout video from friends & family (which we loved watching on our honeymoon) and such a creative, catchy highlight video that truly depicts the vibe of the whole day. Maestro Media was so quick in getting the final products to us. We won't hesitate to highly recommend them to friends and family looking for a talented, professional videographer.
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.
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.
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!
I hired Garret as a videographer for a conference I run. In line with his promptness and responsiveness, he answered my ad immediately and then called me the same day to gather as much information about the event before the day of. Garret showed up early to our conference to make time to speak with myself and our performer for last minute details concerning the performance and it's recording. He was flexible and professional and easily maneuvered the cultural nuances of our international conference. I would gladly and swiftly hire Garret again for videographer needs for work and appreciate his constant communication and work ethic that I as an organizer can count on without a second thought!
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!
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!
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.
Steve did an amazing job at our wedding May 2015! From the very start to the end of the process he was professional, punctual, and genuine. We honestly could not have asked for a better experience. It is hard to put something so special, like your wedding, in the hands of someone else to capture but I highly recommend Steve! We have a video that we can now cherish for a lifetime and recap on the most important day of our lives! Thank you again Steve for going above and beyond!!!! Chelsea and Jeremy
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!
We had an amazing time working with Carisma, and so did everyone in our wedding! She listened to our vision and exceeded our expectations. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a videographer!
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!
We got photos and video, Steve showed us the work and we got to pick our favorite. I was a little worried we wouldn't get what we paid for at first, since my brother spent twice as much for his photographer and videographer, but I honestly liked our photos & video way better. We got everything faster than what Steve said it would take, so that very cool. Thank you!
