The best way to describe our videographer is as a guy with a soul, heart and tremendous artistic capabilities. The combination of the qualities he poses makes him a rarity in the business. From the moment we met him we knew that making videos wasn't his "job" but his passion. He is down to earth, very reasonable and at all times offered very useful advise as well as options and artistic ideas that made the video of our wedding so successful that our family and friends still watch it and talk about it.
