"We hired Karl to record our wedding in June of 2014 in Belle Vernon, PA. His rate was reasonable, and we liked what we saw in the samples he posted online.
On the day of the event, he had two cameras: portable and stationary. We had both our ceremony and the reception at the Willow Room. We liked Karl's fly-on-the-wall filming style. He did his best to stay inconspicuous and record the event without influencing it. He even had one of those SteadyCam rigs that allow the camera to move fast without being jerky. We had some games during the reception and a limbo dance. Karl did a great job at capturing the fun we had there.
Before we got the actual video, Karl sent us a short (just over 7 minutes) preview that showed the highlights of our wedding. We liked it a lot and looked forward to seeing the whole thing. When we finally got it, we really enjoyed seeing our wedding day to great tunes, as well as the entirety of our wedding dance (including a small preview of us practicing it in the bridal room).
The only thing I would like to have been better would be the production time. I realize a good-quality video takes many months of hard work to make (don't let anyone tell you different), but Karl did end up going a bit over the originally-specified time frame of 4 months. However, in the end, I'd have to say that the video was worth the wait. After all, we'll keep re-watching it for many years, decades even. What's a little extra time to ensure quality work?"
