Imagine 15 years from today when you’re watching your wedding video with your children, who are now old enough to understand and appreciate being able to ‘be there’. Imagine the power of watching your first dance in the middle of your first big fight. (Yup, we all have ‘em.) Imagine having a bad day and coming home to watch your reception highlights, and you can’t stop smiling after seeing all your best friends from around the country having the time of their lives. THIS is why we love what we do.

I've found a job and created a business around what I love the most- capturing life in its most beautiful and meaningful moments, and finding a way to share it for years and years to come. And yup, we love it when we hear from couples excitedly after they watch their video for the first time (head HERE to see what some of them have had to say), but it’s what they’ll say 20 years from now that motivates us the most.

So go ahead. Send us an email. We’d love to hear more about your wedding, and how we can help you remember it :) Read less

There is not enough room in this comment field to tell you how amazing Janice and Big Dog Little Bed Productions is. My wife and I met Janice 2 years prior to our wedding and she was a JOY to work with throughout the whole process.

We went back and forth on whether we needed a videographer and I promise you, it was the best decision I made outside of marrying my wife, hehehe. The video quality is amazing and something we will cherish for the rest of our lives. They truly captured our big day in a way I never expected. On top of that, they have offered additional services since the wedding that we have used and/or planning on using in the future. Our DVDs arrived QUICKLY, they posted our videos on social media for our friends to share and even recorded and share our WHOLE wedding ceremony for us. It was BEAUTIFUL. I seriously could not have asked for a better experience.

I will recommend them over anyone, any day to every person who asks me. It was worth every penny! Love Janice, love Big Dog Little Bed Productions. You would be silly to choose anyone else!

Janice is absolutely amazing to work with! We saw some of her videos online and loved their quality and how personal they seemed. Frankly, her work was WAY better than any of the other videographers we could find online. Once we were sold on the product, my fiance and I reached out to Janice and she was quick to find a time for us to meet in person and discuss the details of the day. Janice was SO warm and friendly and we immediately knew we wanted to work with her. On the day of the wedding, Janice arrived early and had great energy and a positive attitude. It was a pleasure to have her around on the day of our wedding and we spent it laughing with her and her assistant, Brad. They both made our wedding day enjoyable, light, and fun. They also got along great with our photographers and it seemed as though everyone had great chemistry. Since the wedding, we have been in contact with Janice frequently as she has produced parts of our video package. It has been so fun to have each component (toasts, dances, highlight) and relive our special day. My husband and I are both so happy we decided to have Janice film our wedding. She was a pleasure to work with and delivered a super high quality product (and within 3 weeks of our wedding, which was so much faster than we expected). We couldn't recommend Big Dog Little Bed more. Hiring them was one of the best decisions we made for our wedding!!!

Janice and her team at BDLB are the best! Janice and Brad were able to tell a story of our wedding day through this beautifully captured and edited video. Janice was wonderful to work with; always professional, personable, and reliable. The quality of her work speaks for itself - just watch her videos on her blog. Then watch other companies. There is a clear maturity, beauty, and uniqueness to her work. We love Janice and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding videographer.

BDLB Productions is absolutely amazing!!!! Janice gave us an incredible way to look back on the most special memories from our wedding day. She captured the most precious moments and put them together in such a unique and meaningful way. My husband and I could not be more pleased with how the video came out. We watch it all the time and I still get tears in my eyes. The music, the clips...everything about the video is flawless. Finally, words to describe BDLB: trustworthy, professional, well-managed, organized, timely, high-quality, INCREDIBLE! I could go on and on. I would HIGHLY recommend BDLB! Thank you!!!!

So many amazing things to say about Bed Dog Little Bed Productions!! To start let me say that when I first began planning my wedding I wanted to have someone attending just set up a tripod and film the ceremony because videographers were expensive and I was trying to save as much as possible. To anyone who may be thinking this in their planning process....ITS WORTH IT! The money I spent on the video was easily the best money spent on my wedding. I have already watched the entire ceremony multiple times and the 6 min film....well I am in the triple digits:)! I got to see things that I missed and relive parts I was there for. Janice was professional, personable, and all around awesome! She managed to fit in like a friend at times and others I didn't even realize she was there. If there is one tip I would give to someone planning their wedding it would be to hire Janice. You will NOT regret it!!

Janice was such a pleasure to work with. Throughout our wedding day, we hardly noticed she was there. Some people worry about hiring both a videographer and photographer because of the time it will take away from the day. However, Janice didn't take away any extra time from us and worked perfectly in sync with our photographer and quietly filmed all the important aspects of our day. The final product was something we couldn't be happier with! She had a quick turnaround time and all of our family and friends absolutely loved watching the highlight video. We loved the music she chose and the scenes included in the highlight video. It is so perfect and will allow us to remember special moments our wedding day for years to come!

My husband and I put a lot of time and thought into selecting a videographer for our wedding, and after working with Janice Smith and Brad Habeeb from Big Dog Little Bed Productions, we could not be happier with our decision. From our first phone call with Janice to our most recent email exchange about receiving the DVDs, Janice has been both warm and professional, both down-to-earth and extremely proficient at her job. Throughout the planning process, she was responsive to phone calls and emails and answered all of our questions promptly and honestly. She also was very open to input and asked a lot of insightful questions so that she would be able to capture us as a couple and our wedding day genuinely. We live out of state, and during our only trip down to North Carolina before the wedding, Janice and Brad made time to meet with us. Not only did this help them to get to know us better, but it also helped us to feel more comfortable and relaxed on the wedding day. We loved sharing our wedding day with both of them and, honestly, forgot about the cameras most of the time! Our wedding party also thought they were wonderful. And, the highlights video that they created is truly spectacular. It is beyond anything we could have imagined, and everyone who has watched it has raved about it. We loved how they included shots of us, as well as of our family and friends, and how they captured so many intimate and special moments. The music was perfect, as was the selection of clips from the ceremony message and the toast that we gave during the reception. It was all pieced together seamlessly, and we are so grateful to Janice and Brad for giving it to us as the perfect memory of our wedding day. We wholeheartedly recommend Big Dog Little Bed Productions to anyone looking for a wedding videographer!

Janice and her team with BDLB were incredible. From the very beginning you can tell that Janice has a passion for this. On the big day her team captured what felt like every single detail.... WITHOUT feeling like they were in the way. I barely even noticed that they were there! Brides, if you are anything like me, you remember going to weddings when you were younger while some older gentleman walked around with a 75 lb camera on his shoulder asking everyone if they had "any advice for the happy couple?" ..... This is NOT that. Janice and her team are so talented, they made our day in to a movie that we can relive and replay over and over again. Not only for us but for our family. Without a doubt, hands down, hiring Big Dog Little Bed was the best decision we made for the entire wedding. So many details go in one day. One. Do yourself a favor and capture it permanently.

Big Dog Little Bed captured our wedding so beautifully and I am so thankful to have this special day documented forever. The entire videography team was so incredibly professional and really put everyone at ease so that the final product felt so real and like you were part of the wedding as you watched. Also, when I initially decided to hire a videographer, I was concerned they could be intrusive during the ceremony and everyone would notice a huge video camera, but Janice assured me this would not be the case. After the wedding, I had guests tell me they didn't even know we had a videographer because everyone was so discreet and blended in with the ceremony and reception. The video is truly one of the most beautiful wedding highlight videos I have seen, from the way the video was edited with music and the voices of the ministers and the best man's toast, to the smallest details that were captured that really show the essence of the wedding. It truly brought out the emotion of the day and I heard more than one person (myself included) say it made them cry (even people that didn't attend). One of my friends said this after watching the video "normally I think these videos are cheesy and lame .. but this one is really gorgeous and genuine. I feel like I can feel your wedding I really loved it. Beautiful!!"

I can't more highly recommend the Big Dog Little Bed team!! One of the best decisions I made for the wedding!

Janice and the team at Big Dog Little Bed is AMAZING!!!! Janice was referred to us by our friends who had used her for their wedding. I'm not the most decisive person, and throughout the course of our wedding planning process there were lots of details that changed multiple times: venue, band or dj, flowers etc. However, the one thing that never changed was the fact that I wanted Janice as our "story teller". She has a special gift, she has the ability to take people you don't even know and connect you to them in a span of three minutes to the point where you find yourself crying at the end of their wedding video. That gift is also very evident in the video she makes of your special day. Having just gotten our video about a week ago, my husband and I have already watched it at least 50 times...catching a new detail each time:) Everyone we share our video with is blown away and many brought to tears. The other thing my husband and I loved about Janice is how kind and friendly she is; unlike many others in the industry you aren't just a number with Janice. Do yourself a favor and hire Janice to capture your special day! You won't regret it!!!!!
