Garrett is absolutely wonderful to work with! One of my main concerns as a bride was to find a trustworthy and reliable vendor and he met every one of my concerns! Garrett offered creative ideas and was open to my ideas and incorporating them into the video. He is very reasonably priced and really impressed me with his ideas, sincerity and reliability. I haven't seen the finished product yet, but I'm sure Garrett will do an amazing job. I highly recommend him if you are looking for a wedding videographer!!!Sep 10, 2017Verified
Garret went above and beyond to capture our wedding day. He was very personable, professional, and timely. He did a great job of capturing all of the special moments that we did not get to witness the day of our wedding. It meant so much to us that he was able to give us a USB with our entire ceremony on it, as well as some pictures of our venue. We highly recommend Garret to anyone looking for a great videographer!Nov 4, 2018Verified
We hired Garret for our wedding a few weeks ago and we could not have been more pleased! From scoping out the venue before the big day to coming to the rehearsal to hanging out in the 100 degree heat with us all day, Garret went above and beyond to make sure he captured as much of the day as he could, including the small details. I specifically requested that he mingle and interview guests throughout the day and mingle he did! I got so many compliments on how friendly and professional the videographer was and some even thought he was family! We got our highlight video back in about two weeks and I have watched it at least once a day since, (usually more!). It is BEAUTIFUL and he even made a small edit to it upon my request. I am still in awe at how perfectly he managed to encompass everything our day was about in a 7 minute video. Hiring a videographer was something that we did not budget for when planning the wedding but Garret is so reasonably priced and I am so glad that we were able to pull the funds together and make it happen because it was absolutely worth every penny! I am so grateful to have these memories preserved so perfectly and beautifully thanks to Garret:)Jul 23, 2018VerifiedGarret Schmidt Videography & Photography's reply
Thank you so much, Abbi! Your kind words mean so much. You and Ryan are a fantastic couple! I’m beyond excited that I had the good fortune of documenting your day! I’ve received many compliments on what a wonderful couple you are and how awesome your friends and family are! Best to you and Ryan! Sincerely, Garret
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!Oct 30, 2017Verified

It was a great experience working with Garret. The quality of his work, his professionalism, responsiveness, and punctuality for the event exceeded my expectation. The final edited video didn't come out as expected because I didn't make it clear what I wanted at the beginning before the event, so it's not his mistake. However, the quality of the raw video and special clips is amazing. For sure I'll hire him again. I highly recommend him.Aug 8, 2018Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I value my time very highly, so I don't put an hourly rate on any project. I generally have a good sense of how long projects take to complete. For example, if a customer decides they want prints after receiving digital copies, there would be an extra charge for that. Or if I'm editing a video and the customer makes changes, I bill accordingly. I always consult with my clients before I do any additional work that may increase the cost of a project.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I like to ask them specific questions about the job. How many people will be in the photo? What location do you have in mind for the shoot? I like to ask my customers if they have any ideas for photos, just to get more input. It's good to ask these basic but important questions before any event.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?My degree is in broadcast communication. I've had several positions in television and radio over the years. Video and photography work have always been a passion of mine. There's always been a camera in my hand, ready to capture the unexpected!
