We had an overwhelmingly awesome experience working with Dane for our wedding. We had another prospect in the same price point but the kicker was the drone. I guess they're pretty common these days but I don't own one and never played with one. The footage he caught with it was like a professionally done movie. There were aerial shots going towards the beach and a shot of everyone waving from the reception 4 floors up and a fade out that was just so pleasant and graceful to watch. I had another photographer who had a helper and he was very professional and allowed them to do their thing while not trying to butt in for his own shots. We had a GoPro on our little dog but he had his own with a slimmer and lighter case that made our dog more comfortable. You could tell he's very passionate about his art and didn't consider it just another gig because he was quite literally running at some points to make sure to get a shot and was excited and beaming when he got it. Afterwards he made a great edited collage video to songs of our choice and was totally cool about making changes for us FOUR separate times. No push back whatsoever. Overall super nice and professional. I would totally recommend him. We got a package that included all the raw footage which he emailed us via a cloud drive. Then we asked if there was anything left out including footage he may have thought weren't good shots (8 months later!) so he sent us an external hard drive with absolutely all the footage good and/or bad. How cool is that?! Give him a call. You won't be disappointed.Jun 8, 2017
DANE was great to work with. His results were excellent both with still shots of our home, as well as a video. It's nice to work with a drone that can get above with some nice aerial shots!May 4, 2017Verified
Dane provided us with aerial photography images from his drone. He worked with us to meet our ridiculous deadline of a few hours from the original request. He was professional and provided us with exactly what we needed - and exceeded our expectations and met our deadline with time to spare.Mar 27, 2017Verified
Dane did an incredible job shooting our wedding! He was extremely fun and easy to work with and he captured our day perfectly! Dane not captured beautiful moments from our wedding, he also utilized technology, like drones, to create a memorable and unique experience. Dane comes with my highest recommendation and I would gladly work with him again!Jul 11, 2016Verified
Thank you so much Dane for your wonderful work! From the minute you got to our church, you and your assistant got to work. You captured so many wonderful memories for our families. The music videos of the wedding and reception turned out great. The raw footage is a treasured keepsake! You made this mother of the groom so happy. Thank you again for the awesome work you did!Apr 4, 2016Verified
