Welcome to our wedding wire page! At Aqua Vivus Productions we strive to provide families with a wedding film they can cherish for generations. There's something magical about movies and how the images and sounds can invoke an emotional response from the viewer. Movie directors spend countless hours trying to squeeze out real emotions from their actors and actresses, and if done well, the director ends up with a masterpiece. But even the best acting is still just that; acting. Weddings are so exciting because the emotions there are as real as they come! We are passionate about capturing all those fleeting moments and emotions. No directing, no acting. Just be yourselves, enjoy the day, and we'll do rest. Read less

Tom and his crew were great! They made everyone so comfortable as we got ready and they didn't get in the way of the ceremony or reception. They were so in tune with everyone and very creative. We can't wait to see the video.
I appreciate the time he took to talk to me way back when during the planning process. He listened to our ideas and wanted to know about who we were as a couple and individuals. They have a lot to offer for an affordable price.

I wish I could give a million stars! My husband and I were to referred to Aqua Vivus by a friend and fell in love! We spend hours and hours pouring over their blog and watched so many of their videos. I honestly felt so HONORED to have them doing the videography for our wedding.

During the day of, Tom and his team were so fun and easy to work with. They made me so comfortable and even laugh out loud multiple times! I was really nervous to be getting ready/doing a first look etc. etc. while being filmed, but they really felt like my family just hanging out and enjoying the amazing day with me.

Words cannot even express how happy and blown away we are with our First Look. This is an edit that is done right after the wedding and is shown at the reception. Our guests were in awe with the talent and the way they so magically captured the perfection of the day. We cannot thank them enough for capturing it for years to come!

This is one vendor you NEED!!!! :)

We are going to hire them again to do the Love Story when we (one day) get pregnant! We cannot wait to work with them again! They are the best of the best!

I don't even know where to begin ... my husband and I were blown away by Thomas and Chris of Aqua Vivus. We chose the same day edit package and man oh man did we get compliment after compliment at how quickly and beautifully they put together our video which played at our reception. I was brought to tears during our reception watching the video and CANNOT wait to receive the full version. All of my interactions with Thomas, mostly through email, were great and in person he was as sweet as can be. I also loved that he gave me the option to pick our songs for the video. I'm telling you guys, hire them!!!

Tom and his team did an amazing job with our same day premiere! I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon aqua vivus on google! From my google searches, I kept coming back to aqua vivus' blog as their videos really do create those very same emotions that people feel during weddings! I would say that it's the feeling that love is a possibility. The same day premiere for my own wedding was so touching, I can feel the room including myself just moved at how everything was captured so beautifully. I even caught my hubby watching our video again after a hard day's of work. It's really special to us. Thank you Tom and Aqua Vivus crew!

Aqua Vivus did an absolute fantastic job on our wedding video. I can't stop watching it. I loved every little detail and the music was perfect. I have never been so blown away. Tom is such a nice, talented guy. He and his team were such a pleasure to work with. They were very professional and the quality of their work speaks for itself. If your looking for a wedding videographer, choosing AV is a no-brainer. They captured all of the memories from our special day so beautifully and we couldn't be happier. Thank you AV for creating a film we can treasure for a lifetime!

Best investment I made for our wedding. I have watched the same-day 3-minute video they made the day of our wedding countless times and I cannot tell you how many people I have made cry from the beautiful work that Tom did. Very professional and easy to work with. I couldn't recommend Aqua Vivus more!

I have NEVER been so impressed by anything in my entire life. I know that is a bold statement, but the video that they edited for my husband and I was top notch. Above and beyond anything we could have ever imagined getting. It's like they took every moment from my wedding that carried monumental emotion and were able to edit it all together. I showed friends and they showed their friends, and all of them were in tears (how in the world did my wedding make complete strangers cry?? Amazing!) Not to mention they were wonderful people to work with. Tom's wife was with us at the salon and she was helping my nerves stay settled. They were extremely professional and knew the exact poses that would facilitate the most natural emotion (aka: not your average forced portrait smiles). I can't recommend them enough! :-D

I had the pleasure of working with Tom from Aqua Vivus on an engagement video he collaborated on with my photographers (www.studiocastillero.com). He was completely wonderful. Totally easy going and made us feel so comfortable. We were so excited when we saw the video he produced for us. Beautifully assembled with stunning artistic touches throughout. Since then, I've been completely obsessed with his work and stalk his blog regularly! Every single film he produces literally moves me to tears. You cannot go wrong with Aqua Vivus!!

The quality of the video was ok, but it took forever for us to receive the video.

We had our wedding in early January and we did not receive our video until December! By that time our baby was born. So be aware that you may not see your video for a VERY long time. In the mean time our wedding coordinator kept contacting them about the video and the answer as always " we are too busy". Our wedding was in the winter so I puzzles me why they could not finish the product before the busy summer hit. Did they not know that a lot of weddings happen in the summer and they could get busy? If they cannot even manage their work load to guarantee a reasonable turn-around time maybe that is an indication that they should not take on so many clients. For us, we also made the mistake of paying them the full amount up-front, so all we could do was to wait. My advice is to pay them half up-front and other half upon delivery and clarify the delivery date in the contract, that way you have some leverage if they fail to deliver.

Both me and my partner are highly educated professionals, we don't leave bad reviews because we were angry. We strongly believe in professionalism, and paying for quality service. There was so much frustration for us after the wedding with this vendor that I think other couples have the right to know what they are getting themselves into.

A few conversations with Tom and it’s easy to see how much he loves his job. It’s also very easy to see how much he values his clients. He was very responsive and always provided such great level of detail to keep my husband and I updated throughout the entire process leading up to our big day. He’s got a great personality and was such a pleasure to work with from start to finish.

On our wedding day, Tom and his crew were one of the first vendors to show up to our venue, which illustrates just how much they take their job seriously on the most important day of your life. Their early arrival meant they could introduce themselves to our planner, our party, talk about the flow of the day, scout out shot locations and get set up in plenty of time. They were extremely nice, patient and made us feel so comfortable throughout the day. I think both side would agree we had a ton of fun!

My husband and I just received our Short Film and we could not be happier with how it turned out. The film is absolutely amazing - the music, the vows, the shots, the number of guests they captured…. everything about how it came together is just stunning! We look forward to watching the video every year on our anniversary to relive the magic!

Hands down, hiring AV was one of the best investments we made for our wedding. We strongly encourage you to hire these guys. Hire. Them. Go, now, before someone else does ☺

Regardless of wedding style, if your desire is to capture the romance, love and fun of your wedding + personal story, I HIGHLY recommend Aqua Vivus as your pick! My husband and I were just awestruck with the level of accuracy in which Thomas O'Hara captured the essence of our wedding day, as though he completely understood without any explanation.

We are constantly impressed as we see all of the other films Aqua Vivus has produced, and took note of the fact that they are not tied to just one style, but rather the highest of quality in all that they do.

While perusing through random wedding videos, by chance, my fiancé (at the time) and I stumbled upon one of Aqua Vivus' short films and immediately fell in love. There was no question that we HAD to have Tom and his team shoot our wedding day. However as we researched a bit more, we discovered that Aqua Vivus was based in California…and our wedding was going to be in South Florida. I sent Aqua Vivus' website to all of my bridesmaids and even some vendors to help us find a videographer with similar aesthetic and quality. After a full month of going through countless sites, it was made crystal clear that we were not going to find anything quite like Aqua Vivus. There was something about the way the story was told, that was incomparable from the rest. I can tell you first hand that our investment proved to be completely worth it..and so much more!
