Paul and Nancy were simply outstanding! Before the wedding they worked with me to get a feel for the type of video I was looking for as well as suggestions of songs I may want to use for the video. They also worked with me to make sure they knew the locations I would be at in order to catch amazing video from the entire day. From the girls and guys getting ready, to the first look all the way to the end of the night with our sparkler send off, THEY WERE ON IT! I barely realized they were there and yet received a PERFECT highlights video quickly after and such a memorable full wedding video later. It captured every moment and really let my husband and I relive that special day that went by so fast! I used a different photographer for my wedding and unfortunately this photographer LOST over 30 pictures from my wedding day including family portraits. I was devastated! Paul and Nancy worked with me and were able to go through their video footage to find stills of the pictures this photographer had lost. They weren't able to find ALL of them but 95% of them were on their video. They saved these pictures for me and gave them to me so that I could have those moments in a still. They completely saved my wedding and were totally willing to work with me on this situation. Overall an outstanding pair! You won't regret choosing them for your wedding day!Jan 1, 2015

- What types of customers have you worked with?We primarily film weddings and live events. We produce approximately 30 weddings per year, although we only film one wedding per day and never overbook, so that we can fully concentrate on your event. We film with professional 3CCD high definition cameras and with two (2) videographers to provide the highest quality video, filming in both documentary and cinematic style. We work closely with our brides to ensure that your video is perfect for you. We specialize in Hindu, Sikh, Muslim and Christian weddings, but enjoy filming weddings of every faith. Please feel free to visit our Video Gallery on our website to view samples of our work. We look forward to hearing from you.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?It is important that you like the style of the videos that your videographer will produce. Some videographers produce documentary style videos, while other produce more cinematic style videos. We produce a combination of the two styles. It is also important to know exactly what you are getting with your videographer. Our Standard Wedding Package includes two videographers and includes complete editing. Nancy and Paul film together, each bringing their own specialties to your video. By filming as a team, Nancy and Paul are able to filming both in a documentary style as well as cinematically. We deliver a cinematic highlights video with every Standard Package. This cinematic video highlights the important events of the day, using background music. The highlights video can be slow and romantic, or upbeat and fun, or both, depending on the music. We prefer using music of our client's choice. We post your highlights video on a private Internet link and deliver the highlights video within 2-3 weeks of the wedding. The final video will include all the events of the wedding as well as the highlights video. We can deliver on DVD or Blu-Ray, or both. Your wedding will go by in a blur and the video, with its combination of motion picture and sound, is your best way to remember the day. Don't leave this important historical document to chance and don't choose based on price alone. Choose a professional videographer whose videos you enjoy, and choose a videographer who has the experience and sensitivity that you deserve for your special day.
