Brian and his staff are some of the greatest guys I have had the opportunity to work with in a professional setting. Brian communicated with us numerous time to ensure that we would get the video of our wedding that we wanted. We weren't sure we were going to have a videographer for our wedding, but we couldn't be happier that we chose to hire Brian and his staff. We quickly learned that photos only capture moments and the video captures the entire event! I highly recommend Brian and his staff for any of your videography needs.

Brian did our friends wedding and she raved about him. It was a no brainer. He's a totally sweet, personable, professional guy. He made me feel comfortable which is important because I'd be spending a lot of time with him... However- as soon as the wedding started it was as if he disapearred. I didn't notice him until the very end of the night when he said goodbye. He was busy capturing every wonderful moment of our day. We spoke to Brian weeks later and gave him our music choices for the video. A few weeks later, we received the most amazing gift- our wedding! We can now relive our wedding all over again! Every time we watch it we cry with joy. So do our folks- both Mom's have a copy and they are still watching it weekly (6 months later) and crying through the whole thing. Brian really captured the spirit of our special day. We have a great little 5 minute recap of our wedding (that we watch weekly) and then we have the full UNCUT footage- WE HAVE EVERYTHING. I can look back years later and watch my whole wedding. See the vows that we said to each other- UNCUT. It's amazing. Thank you so much Brian!

One of the most important vendors for my husband and I was the videographer. Our wedding video was one of the few memories we would have forever and when we chose BGS Productions, we knew we made the right choice. Seeing there work really put us at ease that Brian and his amazing team would capture every special moment of our wedding. Brian was so wonderful to work with, always responded to my emails quickly and made this portion of wedding planning super easy. His team was on time the day of the wedding and very professional and sweet throughout the day dealing with my crazy Armenian family! We got multiples copies of our dvd and blurays exactly 2 months after our wedding and it was the first glimpse into our whirlwind day. The moment the video started I was in tears. We cried, laughed and partied all over again. BGS Productions managed to capture every special, sweet and hilarious moment on the most important day of our lives. It's hard to interact with each guest or remember who you danced with but thanks to this wonderful team I get to relive my wedding day every time I press play. Thank you BGS productions for your amazing work!!!

If all the positive reviews already listed don't sell you on Brian then I don't know what will! He is simply AMAZING! He may start off as your videographer but by the end of it all, he becomes your friend. My husband and I couldn't be more pleased with our wedding video and highly recommend his services. Brian is not only extremely talented, professional, and just an over all wonderful person but he goes above and beyond for his clients! So make the right and best choice and book him for your wedding or special occasions!

Brian is a gem and my husband and I were so honored to have him with us on our big day. Prior to getting engaged, I had been a guest at numerous weddings where Brian and his team were the videographers. Each wedding only reconfirmed that Brian would indeed be with me the day I said I do, and he of course was. Having perfectly captured our 450+ person wedding (and without using a crane!), Brian has allowed me and my husband to relive our wedding night over and over again.

On the day of my wedding, Brian was like family. He captured every moment so beautifully and was always just a few steps away. His intuition is like no other - he knows exactly when an unforgettable moment is about to happen and fully captures it. My husband and I received our wedding video in the most timely manner and I, of course, cry every single time I watch it. Brian had asked me what kind of music I wanted for our "recap". I provided him with a few artists/songs that I liked and he reassured me that he knew exactly what I wanted - and he could not have been more right. The music compliments each scene so perfectly which makes it all so much better.

Brian and his team are without a doubt the best in town. Do not hesitate for a second!

Really fantastic to work with, awesome guy. The video was excellent, and the best part professionally was that he was able to film everything perfectly but you didn't even know he was there, unlike many of the other videographers we've seen who ruin that perfect moment just "to get the shot". Highly recommended.

Brian was not only attentive and professional, but he understood and performed his expertise with ease and skill beyond compare. Being in the event business myself, I am a bit jaded at times so when it came to my wedding I knew that I needed a videographer to capture the best parts of our loving day. Honestly, I didn't think I needed a videographer until about 2 weeks before our wedding I realized my grandpa that resides in Michigan along with the rest of my family couldn't make the trip. I also was referred by a friend and she was ecstatic with their results and at the time her father was diagnosed with a brain tumor and most recently passed so it really hit me that it would be of the utmost importance to have this day filmed. It was an expense that my husband and I weren't planning on incurring since we paid for our entire wedding ourselves, but it became my favorite piece of the day to relive the moments and memories so vividly.

Brian was caring, understanding and fun all at the same time. He helped my husband tie his now tie that he HAD to do himself and not only was stealth as stealth can be during the entire day and evening. He was also extremely respectful and had great, simple advice to offer throughout the day to keep me, my entire family and friends from all over the world to keep everyone happy and calm.

We got married in venues that I sell the space for so it was also a first for me and my team. I am impressed and excited about his work and my nephews loved the DVD so much that they requested their own afterwards! Brian is not only considered an excellent vendor and contact that I would refer time and time again, but he is a friend for life that Danny and I could never forget or thank enough!

Book BGS. Pay BGS. Be happy with the quality and service of BGS for a lifetime together.

Hands down, the best videographer on the planet!! Not only did Brian perfectly capture our big day and provide us with an incredible video, but he is also a stellar person.

BGS's prices are very reasonable and Brian was so prompt with getting us our video after the wedding. Working with Brian exceeded our expectations and we couldn't be happier with the end result. BGS is the only videographer we will ever recommend!

Side note that further proves BGS is awesome: Brian helped wrangle our family and wedding party and made sure our photographers (who didn't have as much wedding experience) got all the shots we could have wanted... This was something he didn't have to do, but did to ensure we ended up with photos we'd be happy with. Really wonderful person who goes above and beyond!

Brian from BGS Productions was one of our favorite vendors. The video is AMAZING (I cried just as much watching the video as I did at the wedding). But besides Brian's talented video skills, his personality is really what sets him apart from the rest. His demeanor is great and we barely knew he was around because he is so quiet and out of the way. But, he still got the best footage and the editing is great. I was lucky enough to spend a few moments alone with Brian while he was filming my dress before the wedding and those few minutes completely calmed me down. His nature is just so calming and relaxed which is so important on your wedding day. I've met other videographers who want to be the center of attention and I could not have handled that. Brian is definitely not one of those. We would recommend Brian and BGS Productions over and over again to our friends and family.

If you're looking for an awesome videographer who is super fun and attentive to work with, congrats your hunt is now over!

I was fortunate to come across Brian of BGS upon my coordinator's recommendation & I'm grateful I did! I am a super type A person and after spending months online looking at various websites & watching random wedding video clips, when I visited the website for BGS, I just KNEW I wanted to work with this team. When I first spoke to Brian I learned he was booked and was quite disappointed..my search continued & 2 months later, I still hadn't found any company I felt that same authentic vibe with that I did with BGS. I luckily called Brian again to see if any other team members were available & as some things are simply meant to be - so was this (the prior wedding was called off so he was all mine)!

He was super nice and accommodating every time we spoke & when I met him at their office there was no question I was going to hire his team! I literally bonded with my wedding videographer for at least 2 hours at our first meeting. In Brian you not only find a highly professional videographer , you find a friend who is not only super talented but who truly , truly LOVES what he done. That passion transcends into his work product & you will be so very pleased with it!!!

Everyone was amazed to hear that we already received our wedding video - BGS works effectively and honors every promise made. We were really so happy with his work! We laughed, we cried and were moved by the details and emotion BGS was able to capture!! I look forward to sharing it with family members who weren't able to make it especially because it beautifully captures the ambiance and love from that day!!

At the end, the only way you will relive that whirlwind of a day is through video & photos ..if you're looking for quality & professional work from a team who is an ABSOLUTE pleasure to work with, BGS is it!

When planning our wedding, my husband and I really weighed out what was important to us. First, to choose vendors that we connect with on a personal level- not just people who do great work. Second, we determined that Photo/Video was so important that we would design our budget around finding great people to capture our day. We found both qualities in Brian. We first met with Brandon from Couture Foto as our photographer, and then Brian entered the room (they work in the same office) to discuss his vision. I believe we stayed in their office for over an hour just talking, laughing, and looking over their work. Brian is a person that I hope to run into out in the world, because he is vibrant, witty, and incredibly talented to boot. Meeting someone like him is lucky in life, having him there to capture the biggest day of your life is a wonderful bonus. He is passionate, compassionate, and talented. He understands weddings, and when we saw photos our friends took with their phones we noticed that Brian was everywhere he needed to be, yet we NEVER noticed him capturing footage, that is a talent all in itself. If you've read this far, I hope you are now convinced that calling him is a very smart move. The day will swing by, you will regret not seeing the parts you should have payed attention to. Thank you, Brian.

Where do we start?! Let's go back to about 6 months ago when we were finalizing all of our wedding plans, vendors, and details...My friend was reminiscing about her wedding to me when she said, "The one thing I regret is not getting a videographer - you should 100% get one". I thought to myself (in a panic, of course), "Do we need to also book one? Will we also regret it if we don't?"

After days of entertaining the idea, I reached out to my amazing photographer (Brandon Humes @ Couture Foto) to see if he knew anyone. Well, he in fact did and it was BGS Productions. I reached out to Brian immediately to set up time to chat. (Referrals are key for weddings, by the way.)

Usually when you meet with vendors, you feel overwhelmed but with Brian - it was very laid back, easy, professional, and my personal favorite - humorous. He had great work to showcase and I loved that he was so personable. Clearly, you need to relate to your photographer and videographer to make the wedding a success.

The day of the wedding, as all brides are - I was stressed out but nervous, excited, and full of emotion. Brian kept me laughing the entire time, made me feel comfortable and it allowed me to forget all my worries for my wedding day. Everything felt natural, not forced, and we were able to capture ALL of our key moments.

Fast forward to now, when we got our video (Yes, only after 3 weeks!) - my husband and I were able to relive our entire experience again. We laughed, we cried, and we laughed some more. We watched it numerous times since! We are so fortunate to have had Brian because there were moments that we forgot about that he was able to capture for us. It meant a LOT.

Now for the big question, would I recommend Brian to my friends? Absolutely. In a heart beat. Will you get everything you wanted from the experience? Yes. Take it from me, getting a videographer is almost as important as the dress, the venue, and the photographer.

Thank you again, Brian!!!

Brian is an amazing videographer! He loves what he does and it shows in his work! With his kind personality, and the quality of work he produces, I knew I wanted him to video my wedding. I could tell he took great pride in his work from the moment I met him. We originally hired just one videographer (Brian) to film our wedding. A month before our wedding he contacted me and asked if he could bring another videographer at no extra charge to video tape our wedding, because he said that the footage would be covered better at different angles. Now if that alone doesn't show you how nice and professional he is then listen to this.... He video taped our entire wedding and it didn't even seem like we were being video taped at all! A few weeks later we received our DVDs and we forgot to tell him that we wanted a certain part of our reception in the tape. We asked him if it was too late to add the footage and wanted to pay him but he would not take anything and he made us new videos for free with what we had asked for added.
I am so thankful for Brian. He helped my husband Mark and I relive our most special day through his awesome video (when you are a bride and groom your special day goes by so fast, you don't remember or are unable to see a lot of the fun that is going on). Now we have that day saved forever and have so much fun watching it, and showing it to our friends and family.
All of you brides out there...you are missing out if you don't higher Brian as your videographer. He is the best and I would give him 10 stars if I could.

BGS Productions is by far THE BEST in the business. I was fortunate enough to meet Brian Starkman when I first wanted to propose to my wife. Brian was present when I proposed to my wife in my childhood backyard with Capital Cities playing and all of our closest friends and family present. The proposal as well as the party were both surprises. Brian's video was picture perfect. He captured the true element of the surprise and the unforgettable love and emotion when I asked my wife to marry me.

Thereafter, BGS Productions were again there to capture our wedding. Words cannot describe the level of perfection when we were able to watch our wedding video after the big day. If there is ever an artist of his profession, or a master of his craft, it is Brian Starkman. The wedding video allows us to truly relive the best day of our lives. We can be so lucky to have someone so talented to give us the opportunity of having that. BGS Productions has allowed us to have our proposal and our wedding video at the edge of our fingertips. Other couples can be so lucky. I highly recommend them for any event.

I honestly don't even know where to start in reviewing BGS Productions. I received my wedding video back 2 weeks ago (Only 6 weeks after our wedding, shocking I know!) and I've seen it about 7 times already! Brian is hands down the most incredible, talented and sweetest person. I found BGS Productions off his reviews online and only after reading a few reviews I knew that we had to contact him. I had a few other options for videographers, but after meeting with Brian I knew we had found the guy for the job and let me tell you, it was the BEST decision we made. Choosing a photographer and videographer is probably the most important decision when planning a wedding and it's the time to be least stingy because they are by far the one of the most essential parts of your wedding. Our wedding day was long, emotional and overwhelming and the next morning we literally couldn't remember half the details and that's when you're most grateful for hiring an amazing videographer!

In addition to hiring BGS for our wedding we also had him do a video montage for us to show during the video so we worked with Brian a few times before the actual wedding and each time we were blown away by his professionalism, commitment and wonderful personality. After the first time Brian came to the house to shoot the montage with both our families, by the end of the day it felt as though he became part of the FAM!

To make a long story short both our video montage and our wedding video were incredible. Brian's editing skills are truly suburb. He captured every moment of our wedding perfectly and still managed to not make our video 6 hours long. My wedding video is now my favorite Movie :) I can watch it all day every day....it really is that great!

So moral of the story is if you're looking for a videographer look no further than BGS Productions! I'm so happy that we found Brian and even though our wedding is over we have now gained a great friend. Thank you Brian for everything!!!!! Xo

Brian filmed both my daughter Chantal and Gabrielle's weddings. The videos are amazing. We love watching them. The music is great and he caught all of the important moments plus many more. Working with Brian was the best experience. We didn't need to tell him anything. We barely noticed he was there. We love Brian and his work. He is extremely professional and very easy to work with. Very fair prices as well.

Due to budget constraints, we were on the fence about having a videographer at all, but we decided in the end that we would regret not having a video. Well, hiring Brian and BGS Productions was the best decision that we made throughout our whole wedding process!!!! There are no words to describe just how good he is. He truly is a master at his craft and goes above and beyond to make sure that the bride and groom feel comfortable at all times.

Our photographer was completely overwhelmed during our wedding day and Brian totally stepped it up and orchestrated and choreographed every single shot. Without him we would have NOTHING to show for our special day.

His communication and responsiveness were so impressive. He checked in (BY PHONE!!) multiple times prior to the wedding and was so willing to do whatever it took to ensure that everything was PERFECT!!!!

The turnaround time of getting the finished video was unheard of. We received our video just a few weeks after our wedding and we've watched it a countless number of times!!!

My advice to every bride and groom: LOOK NO FURTHER. You not only come out of it with an amazing video that captures your wedding day with so much emotion, but a great friend who truly loves what he does and cares about his clients!

Best wedding video ever!!! I have seen some friends wedding videos and nothing compares to the quality we received. Brian did a wonderful job with all aspects of this video and was able to capture everything while being unintrusive. He is also very professional and worked as a team with our photographer, so there was no turf wars over who got the best shot. I would recommend BGS Productions to anyone who is planning anything that could potentially need video!

STOP searching for wedding videographers - if you've luckily found your way to BGS Productions, YOU'VE FOUND YOUR GUY.

We got our DVDs back surprisingly quick and watched our video right away - and loved it!!! I watched it with so much anticipation just given how much fun it was working and communicating back and forth with Brian on every last "fine detail" - and by the end of it we were BOTH SO HAPPY with it. My wife (and her parents) really loved it too and said it was everything she was hoping for, so that's really what it's all about in the end!

I was especially pumped that all the song selections and editing came out so well too. Brian really helped me make all the right choices, and thankfully was so flexible and understanding through the entire process. I also went to great lengths to make a huge entrance for our reception by arriving via HELICOPTER, and Brian and his videographer crew captured the big moment SOOOO perfect and seamlessly showcased it into our video. He even did a special edit for our Recap/Highlight video with my favorite FUN. song.... and oh man, HE NAILED IT. Exactly what I was hoping for. I'm sure every couple that he works with says this, but we were literally up and dancing along in our living room by the end of the video, especially with the bonus dance set/montage!

Just big smiles all around. :) We've both been really busy now that we're married but I still want to watch it 1,000 more times as soon as we can. I really don't know how to thank Brian enough to show how much I appreciate the work that he put in to make this all happen.

The only downside to all of this is now that it's over, we don't really have any more reasons to keep emailing each back and forth!! I guess that's what Facebook's for though - LOL!

Don't hire this guy he's not worth the cost.
When we first met/hired Brian we were very excited and thought we found a great videographer. We looked at examples of his work & he was recommended by our venue. He does a great montage of the day but that's all that was good about our final product.
He didn't capture key moments he was in the room for (the signing of our marriage license) & captured others terribly (only showed the hands of those signing our Ketubah). The video was out of focus in places (during toasts and other non-dancing events) to which he told me that it was in focus. Only in the Blue Ray copy is everything in focus, but DVD's should be that poor of quality. He cut off the beginning of BOTH the Father/Daughter dance & our First Dance and for the latter he was behind us & only got a 3/4 shot so you can’t see the whole dance.
Much of the first half of the reception also wasn't captured. We had amazing music playing during dinner and he didn't capture a single song. Instead he laid over his own music for that portion of the night.
It's over a year later and I'm still getting compliments on our music selection, but it wasn't captured for posterity. And of course, that's the entire reason we got a videographer. Pictures are great, but in order to capture the tone, style, and sounds of the wedding, video is the only way to go.
I asked him if he could do a re-edit but he said the material didn't exist. I asked for a copy of the raw footage but he would not provide that.
I went back and forth with him trying to salvage the video but was unable to get something from him that I don't hate. The only compensation he gave me for this fiasco was one free Blue Ray disc so we at least have one copy of the wedding that's in focus. At one point he offered me a small amount of a monetary refund but when I told him that wasn't enough I never heard from him again. My dad wanted me to sue him, but that's just not my style but I do want to warn others away.

My wife and I were married at North Ranch Country Club and hired Brian as our videographer. The first thing I would like to say is that Brian is more than just a videographer. He helped us in making important decisions and suggestions regarding our wedding and also has great connections/relationships with other vendors as well which saved us a lot of time, headaches and money in the whole process. Not only was our video exciting and emotional because he captured all the right moments but it was also very professional. The audio was great (he supplied us with microphones so you could hear us during the ceremony) and the video was excellent quality. His video was so good that whether it be 5 months or 5 years from now, when we watch our video it will feel like we are back at the wedding again. If you are shopping around make sure you ask the right questions because this is the one and only chance you will be able to capture your wedding so choose wisely. It's funny how people spend thousands on venues, food, dresses etc. but when it comes time to capture the moment they choose a 'fly by night' discount videographer. Our choice was a great one going with BGS Productions. Thanks Brian!

BGS Productions was amazing. My wife and I wanted to capture our special day so down the line we can look back and re-live the moment and Brian was exactly what we needed! His professionalism is top notch and we did not have to worry about anything on our wedding day. What was even better was when we watched the final product with our family, most of them were in tears because it picked up on so many small special moments that they initially missed.

Our video brought us back to that special day and I could not be more thankful to have had Brian recording it for us! Not only would I recommend him, I would be honored to refer him to other friends!!

Having a video of our wedding was so priceless. Our friends and family watch it over and over again. With Brian, your video will not only capture the best moments of your wedding day, but also the moments that are so intimate and special without you even noticing that someone has a camera near you. His video has brought tears to the eyes of our loved ones. He is extremely professional and responsive when something was not working with our video's sound.

Having a video of our wedding was so priceless. Our friends and family watch it over and over again. With Brian, your video will not only capture the best moments of your wedding day, but also the moments that are so intimate and special without you even noticing that someone has a camera near you. His video has brought tears to the eyes of our loved ones. He is extremely professional and responsive when something was not working with our video's sound. He made sure to fix the problem in a timely manner and worked endlessly to make sure our final result was perfect. I would recommend his services to all our friends. Thank you! Read less

The. Best. Wedding. Videographers. Period.

Brian and the BGS crew were awesome. Originally we were thinking of just having photographers at our wedding (because we met with some videographers who showed us their work and most of it was extra Cheesy)... BUT then we met with Brian and our perception changed. His concept of using actual music from the live band in the wedding for the video, and the way the video itself was shot was exactly what we wanted..... and his pricing was extremely fair for the quality of service and attention that we were getting.
Not only did Brian ease us into our actual wedding day by helping us with the scouting and suggestions of some pre-Wedding locations to shoot at, but throughout the entire process he kept in touch with us to help with other aspects of the wedding planning (Suggesting some vendors to get estimates, etc).
The day of the Wedding, the crew was with us bright and early and guided us very professionally along the way of the pre-Wedding shoots (@ hotel, @ the Beverly Hills park, @ our house). They definitely helped with our Wedding day nerves. At the wedding venue, they blended in with our 160 guests, and caught all of the touching, hilarious, and memorable moments (many of which we actually did not see and/or remember until we saw the actual wedding video.... WHICH TURNED OUT EVEN BETTER THAN WE HOPED!). We could not have asked for anything better. We will always be grateful to BGS for leaving us with an amazing experience and a perfect wedding video.

If you are planning your wedding right now and are still wondering which videographer to use, stop your search and just give Brian and the folks at BGS productions a call.

Brian and his team handled everything with the utmost professionalism from which songs to include on the Wedding Video to actual delivery of the wedding video. And the day of? Forget about it! BGS was there to capture all the great moments...from the first look to the first dance to the cutting (and smudging) of the cake.

Even our photographer commented to us on BGS' professionalism. She was able to capture every still shot without having a videographer "in the way". I guess in the age of Hollywood, some videographers think they are Oliver Stone or something. In any event, having a video team that works "stays out of the way" but still captures key moments of your big day is grossly under-rated.

All in all, BGS is a company that I would recommend to a friend or family member. We couldn't have been happier with their service...and we love watching the video. Thanks BGS!

I didn't want a videographer at my wedding. My bride worked on me, gently. Two weeks before the wedding I finally agreed to a meeting with Brian. I'm glad I did. We booked him the same day. He was everything I wanted in a videographer - low key, disappeared into the background of the event and produced a video for us that captured the day without being cheesy. Yes, I've watched it - I love it - I'm glad we did it. Brian was fun and easy to work with - totally professional. From the little research we did, his pricing is on the higher side, but as far as I'm conceded it was money well spent.

BGS Productions is phenomenal! Speedy responses to calls, emails, etc, flexible with meetings, helpful with picking music for ceremony and video, all-over amazing! We worked with the owner, Brian, and he was the most helpful, considerate, professional and efficient person ever! He's done weddings at our venue (Malibou Lake Mountain Club, which works with Truly Yours Catering) a million times, so anytime I had a question about the food, timeline, music or whatever else, he answered in detail and helped me feel comfortable and confident with my decisions. I know that video, in general, is an expensive addition to a wedding, but BSG Productions was worth every penny! there are so many moments that can't be captured by a photo, so i'm thankful for Brian's services and just having him involved with my wedding :)

You will be spending some $ with them, but judging by the quality and overall experience, it is WELL WORTH IT! They captured everything exactly as I wanted, and they were a joy to work with.

BGS Rocks!! Brian and his team go above and beyond. Seriously, from beginning to end, they were nothing short of awesome! Like many others apparently, videography was one of the things we weren't really sold on when we first got engaged. But after several friends told us it was the best money they spent, we decided we had to do it or we'd regret it like so many of our other friends who hadn't gone for it. BGS came highly recommended through a couple different friends of ours who had hired them for their weddings. Brian was super easy-going and insanely accommodating with how busy he is. Emails and calls were always returned in a matter of minutes, which I certainly cannot say about all my vendors, and the finished product was delivered fast and exceeded my expectations. It was a truly magical day, I cannot wait to relive it over and over again and show our kids someday. I would give BGS all 10's if the ratings would let me!

BGS Productions is the epitome of professionalism and good service. From our first meeting with Brian we were put instantly at ease, knowing that our wedding would be captured in its entirety, and with a professional wedding videographer. It relieved much of the wedding stress, and allowed us to concentrate on the rest of the event. On the wedding day Brian seemed to be everywhere, always making sure that he didn't miss any spontaneous moments, while also making sure that he got us into the best photo op locations at the best times. We cannot reccomend this vendor highly enough!

Words cannot describe how happy I am with my wedding video. Like any typical bride, I wanted to save money and opt out on the video... I thank God that Brian talked me into doing it. The video is more than what I expected. They even found the original version of our wedding song to include in the video. That was definitely a brilliant touch. I have never been happier with making this decision!

Flowers die, drinks get drank, food gets eaten, tuxedos returned and yet couple years later my wedding DVD from BGS productions sits warmly next to my television after being viewed many times over. This was truely the best money spent on our wedding!

Reasons why we refer BGS productions
-the finished DVD was amazing. Captured the highlights as well as things my wife and I didn't experience
-super easy and flexible to work with. Brian was also a great resource for advice outside of videography regarding our wedding. (added bonus)
-takes major pride in his work. (This will ensure he gives you 110% of his efforts)
-high level of professionalism, integrity, and great with all types of personalities (This will come in handy from bridezillas to the groom that is told to just "show up")

I can go on and on, but I won't. I will wrap things up by saying if we had to press the restart button, BGS productions would be one of the only decisions we would NOT change. Do yourself a favor and book him!

Brian with BGS productions is very professional, friendly, and down to earth. He is one of my vendors that will forever stand out as exceptional. He was there and helping everytime I turned around, although not in any annoying or obnoxious kind of way. He didn't make himself "noticed", it was just the little things he did that made him stand out as "excellent". He helped with my dress making sure it wasn't getting tossed in the wrong direction. He went ABOVE AND BEYOND his duty as a videographer.
For the video, they ask you to pick some songs for the background music. We had such confidence in him that we gave him several names of bands/singers and he picked the songs for us. I have to say that I wouldn't have been able to pick more perfect or appropriate songs for our video. Our video was exquisite, as a wedding video should be. I would recommend this videographer hands down!
