Hired this duo on a whim, on a-last-minute-pre-wedding-freak-out-rampage. For whatever reason, the spirit moved me and I just KNEW i needed my wedding on video. As this was a last minute adventure, price was a main concern of mine. However, my (now) husband and I agreed that nothing is worth paying for if you don't get a quality product. So with that in mind, we started really looking. So I placed a suggestion on thumbtack and about six or so businesses got back to me within half an hour.
What stood out to me with this group was the availability of previous videos. Say what?! They did a video in some crazy off lands! But how will I know that they can do just a regular-joe wedding? No bells. No whistles. Just me, and those closest to me. I stated to my husband. So I decided to send them a few questions. We must have exchanged about 30 emails before we agreed on a plan and a price. They were quick to respond, they were patient, so patient with me, I asked about every little thing I Could think of. They tailored my wedding day package to my needs, to my price point, and to EXACTLY what would be meaningful to me. So alas, it was booked.
WE MET AT THE CHURCH BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY. The place where the ceremony would take place. Who does that? They do! Because they are awesome! We ACTUALLY stood up and walked around and DISCUSSED where things should happen. We talked about who would be where and when! NICK TOOK NOTES! About my day!! Which, means nothing to them, but everything to my husband and I. They asked us questions like What do you want to ensure we get on camera? Whats important to you? Who is important to you? Who is not important to you? What time does your day start? Where should we be when? What are your family traditions? And honestly, I didnt know the answer to most of the questions. Most of the time I responded with whats normal?. But this gave us time to think about what we wanted and it opened a gate so we felt comfortable talking to them about what we were envisioning, and how our ideas coordinated with theirs.
The day arrived. And so did they. Just as they said they would. Seven minutes early even. They were both very present with me (and my family) for all moments during the day (not on their phones, or distracted with other people or their equipment), but I never quite noticed them there. It wasnt awkward like I thought they would be. I hate being on film, and I told them that, and they just did their thing. So casually. So casually that after the wedding day, I got concerned that they had just left for the day because nobody could remember seeing them.
When they finally gave me our first cut of the day. I cried. I cheered. I laughed. I cried more. I watched it 100 times in a row. I didnt sleep. I loved it all. They caught so many of the best moments. They caught so many of the unseen (to me) moments. They caught the right amount of perfect moments. For instance, our ring bearer, 2.5 years old. Had tantrum after tantrum at our wedding. They caught his attitude on camera, but made it cute and funny. It was all just so perfect.
**I just tried to write a paragraph about things I truly didnt like about them and the service they offer, and I couldnt think of anything. I then asked my husband, he couldnt think of anything either.
I cant say enough good things about this duo. They truly were the best decision I made for the wedding day (other than my husband). I find the video is more precious than the photos. And I believe most of that has to do with the professional work and relationship Nick and Sara made with my husband and I PRIOR to our wedding day. Friends and family knew theyd be video tapped throughout the day and knowing Nick and Sara were relaxed about the situation, made me relax, which made my friends and family relax. Sure, a lot of people own nice cameras and can make you a video. But these two have mastered the art of professionalism, and quality of work. I understand that we paid for a service, and they delivered EXACTLY what we contracted, but what they actually produced was way better than what I ever expected. They are an amazing company and I highly recommend them.
