I used David for my wedding on September 5th and could not be more impressed with his professionalism, calm demeanor and ability to always be in the right place at the right time. I had researched many videographers and was very picky in my selection process After watching David work with another bride and watching his previous videos, I knew I found "the one". He is so wonderful to work with and has such a positive and inviting personality. He also brought his assistant William who was just as great to work with. They both captured so many moments that as a bride you can't always be a part of.

I would recommend David and William to anyone I know getting married. I can't say enough about their beautiful work.

David is the best of the best ..... We were 3 weeks before the weeding and still didn't have videographer. I started calling different people from yelp. Some didn't return call and others took 1 week to call back .David called me back in less than 30 min he said he was available for our day so we booked appointment with him. Since this was our first wedding having in the family I was unaware of the procedures . David helped me organize a timeline that would be helpful that day he gave me different tips of how to so thing and at the end we both agreed. He is in your event walking you thru steps since day 1. His photos were awesome love all the help he have us and the amazing work he did . He did more than what was in the agreement. Love his personality and effort in helping us keep in track. Even with so short notice we were able to make everything work perfectly. I am greatful that I was able to find David for our special moment since this is going to be a memory of our lifetime and wanted to have it to rember it in years from now. Thank you David so much for all your great help I didn't know how I would of done it without you. When ever I need someone again I know exactly who I'm going to be calling

Being a television producer in San Francisco it was difficult for me to let go of control for the video shoot of one of the most important days of my life. AVR Films was so professional and produced such quality material that I was completely comfortable letting go and knew that in David's hands everything would turn out WONDERFUL!!!

He took time to talk with me multiple times prior to the big day and explained to me all that he had envisioned as well as took time to find out what I was looking for (he even gave me some ideas on what could enhance my wedding video like the reading of letters my husband and I wrote to each other before the wedding). With their multiple cameras and high quality equipment AVL Films is on the cutting edge however what makes them more than just a production company is how much they care about each of their couples. David genuinely wanted to know about my husband and I and wanted to help make our day special and memorable.

On the day of the wedding he was so calm and he made me relax and feel confident that everything was going to work out. He brought his video team along with the most amazing and sweet photographer, Rachel Capil! They were all so on top of everything I felt like I didn't need to worry about a thing, I didn't need to give any direction they just did it :)!!! I feel like I may have been a very difficult bride to please in this area but AVL Films exceeded all of my expectations and I couldn't be happier :)!

David and his team are literally as good as it gets. We received complements from both our guests and other vendors (including the venue's wedding coordinator) on how professional he and his team were.
He did not want to miss anything - unfortunately, the photographers did not make it to the bride (me) before the event. David noticed this and had one of his team members to take pictures of me instead of the photographers. He not only did his job, but he also made sure that I would get the full package of my wedding from the photographers - he really cares about providing the best memories to the groom and the bride.
I'm so, so lucky I was able to book David for my weeding! My wedding pictures and video would most likely be incomplete otherwise.
David brought 2 more people along with him and we did not notice any of them the whole day. They were just doing their job, not bothering any of the guests, other vendors or the newly weds.
Just a couple of days after the wedding, he was already ready to share with us some amazing pictures of the ceremony.
If you want the best value and quality, this is it, no need to search for more. Just make sure to book him early enough, chances are that he will be busy on your special day.

David Ethridge is without a doubt one of the most talented cinematographers. This is a huge compliment coming from me seeing that I studied film and looked at over 25 wedding videographers before deciding to hire David. Once I saw David's work, I feel in love... I knew that I couldn't have any other videographer film my wedding.

David and his team went above and beyond to ensure that my wedding video was flawless. David came the day before to my rehearsal at no additional charge. He familiarized himself every detail of my wedding and was beyond prepared.

The day of the wedding I felt 100% confident and comfortable with David and his team. They showed up 2 hours early to film the bridal party getting ready and every little detail at the venue. David's warm personality is a HUGE bonus. What bride doesn't want a videographer that makes you smile and can get along with anyone?

David, knowing that I am passionate about editing, offered to give me the raw footage in addition to the 2 wedding videos he edited for me. Being the impatient person that I am, David let me see the 17 minute video that he created (the disk with everything on it is being mailed). I WAS BLOWN AWAY and could not have asked for a better video. David created a beautiful montage of my wedding day. He intercut the ceremony with the reception and it truly is the work of a talented artist.

Now, let's talk business... Unlike most photographers and videographers David stays until he gets all of the shots that he needs. He is not focused on getting paid over time but rather providing amazing videos for his clients. Because David is so wonderful he is in high demand so book him early! David will take the time to make your video perfect. He does not follow a formula and every video is unique. I was BEYOND impressed that he was able to finish everything 2 months earlier then expected and I could see the countless hours that he put into the film.

We LOVE our final product and are so glad we chose AVR Films for our wedding. The day was flawless and I felt so confident that the videographers were getting every detail that I would not get to see myself. They were so easy to work with and told us to pretend they weren't even there. The quality of their work is amazing and have already recommended them to friends!

Hiring Dave & AVR Films was the BEST wedding decision that I made. He and his team were an absolute dream to work with. Dave worked directly with me on the wedding day (prior to our ceremony). My bridesmaids adored him and we were all impressed by his ability to fade into the background, while still capturing the memorable, special, and sentimental moments.

Dave and his team were professional, spirited, kind hearted and accommodating. Looking back at the whole wedding experience, there was never a moment when I felt his cameras were intruding on my day. In fact, there were actually many times when I didn't even notice him and his talented team doing their stellar work.

My husband and I often reflect on our entire wedding day and one moment always sticks out in our mind. After our ceremony, our photographer and Dave took pictures of us inside and around the church. They suggested that we take some photos in front of a brightly painted red wall (which ended up looking AMAZING). My husband and I were doing different poses against the wall and we looked down and saw Dave---- lying on his side IN a street gutter, legs spread out, one arm propping him up, fully within the dirty San Francisco gutter--- taking the most BEAUTIFUL VIDEO and PHOTOS ever! That is true commitment. My husband and I still laugh about that to this day.

Although we haven't seen the final wedding movie yet (it's only been 1 month since our wedding), Dave has sent us numerous e-mail updates about the progress of our wedding video. We appreciate the open communication and professionalism.

I have several friends getting married this summer and they asked me, "what's the most important advice you have?" I always tell them right away--- HIRE a videographer!!! The whole days flies by!

If you're lucky--- you will have Dave's creative work to watch time and time again. He's the best!
