We had the pleasure of working with BigTime Video services for our wedding in June. They were absolutely fantastic! Peri was very friendly and professional throughout the whole process. The team was able to obtain multiple angles of our ceremony and the reception. They captured our special day perfectly! I would highly recommend BigTime Video for any occasion. Thank you Peri!

Peri and her team did an excellent job both at our wedding and with the video production afterwards. You can tell a professional's work when you see it, and multiple guests have told us that our wedding video is the best one they have ever seen. They were great with our feedback and requests and handled everything in a timely manner. I'm so glad we made the choice to do a wedding video, and BigTime was the perfect partner to make it happen!

Peri and her team were amazing before, during, and after our wedding. Having a videographer was really important to us, and everyone we talked to in Carmel said we had to use Peri and Big Time Video. I am a pretty Type A kind of person, so I really bombarded Peri with emails and asked tons of questions, and she was so incredibly responsive and thorough. Always very professional and super flexible. We kept going back and forth on what we wanted, how long we wanted coverage, how many videographers, etc., and Peri took it all in stride. On the big day, the videographers were both amazing, made us feel totally comfortable, and put everyone at ease. I was really worried about a videographer being around and making people feel awkard, and having huge lights or something and taking away from our natural vibe, but that wasn't the case at all. They blended right into the crowd, and captured so many perfect and amazing moments and no one even noticed they were there. Your wedding day is so special and you spend so much time putting everything together to make it perfect, and once it arrives it goes by in an instant! There were so many things that happened that we didn't even know about and/or remember because we were so overcome with the day. Having the amazing video to look back on is so special to us, and we really cherish it already. All of our friends and family have commented on how great it is, and like other reviews have said, it's not a boring normal wedding video, it's really fun and funny and exciting, and keeps you intersted. My mom has shown the highlights version to co-workers who we don't even know and they're brought to tears and laughter! Great work Peri and team!!! Would 110% recommend to anyone getting married in the area!!! THANK YOU!!!!

Peri and her staff were incredibly priceless at our wedding! I know everyone says the one thing they regret is not having a videographer -- so that's the reason I hired Big Time Video Services to film our wedding. However, I didn't realize HOW MUCH the video means! This was going to be one of those options I "cut from the budget" -- never EVER will I tell a bride to do that after the amazingness captured from our day on video. Every detail mattered to me, but I didn't realize how important the video is to capture the emotion, excitement, and love of the whole day! The staff made me and my husband feel incredibly comfortable and excited for our special day. We've watched our highlight reel numerous times and have ended in happy tears each time. I can't speak highly enough about this company. Peri is AMAZING with her communication, makes you feel comfortable, and never oversells. She tries to find the right package for each client depending on what's important to them. I want to get married again to my husband just for another video! ;-) Thank you Big Time!

As cliche as it sounds, the wedding day goes by so fast. Having a video to catch all the details we missed, and to get to re visit those special moments is priceless. I absolutely recommend a videographer and highly recommend BigTime as a professional, experienced and reliable company!

We love our video, and we are so happy we chose Big Time Video as our videographer. Perri Basseri and Patrick are wonderful to work with, easy-going and professional. Perri was very responsive through email and phone and answered all my questions. She's very knowledgeable at what she does.
When we received the full edited video, we were amazed on how wonderfully it was done, they were able to capture our experience of the wedding, as well as, all the wonderful moments we missed.
We're so glad we have this short film to share with our friends and family for years to come. We would highly recommend Big Time Video!!!!!

Peri Basseri at BigTime Video Services was our videographer and an absolute pleasure to work with. Peri is very accessible by e-mail, and she scheduled a time for us to talk on the phone for our first conversation. She answered all our questions and provided a lot of options for packages so that we can get exactly what we want - I only wish all my vendors were so flexible! On the day of our wedding, Peri and the second videographer were very professional. They blended well with the guests, so they did not feel like intruders at all.

I waited to review until after I saw the videos, and I have to say that I absolutely loved them! We had a shorter video that perfectly captured the emotions of the day, and it's the perfect length to share with family and friends that could not attend. We also had a longer video just for us and close family. I was hesitant at first about hiring a videographer due to budget reasons, but I definitely think it was worth it - there were moments like all the great wedding toasts that couldn't have been captured by photographs, and we were so glad to watch them again after the wedding. I'm happy that we had Peri there to record our special day, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her!

I'll be honest - we didn't budget for a videographer. Hiring a videographer is an expensive proposition, but my mom decided it was something she absolutely wanted so she stepped in and hired Jayna at BigTime Video Services. Two videographers were there for the day and they followed us around. I felt a bit bad because we weren't able to carve out much exclusive time for the videographer so I was a bit worried as to whether they'd be able to catch enough footage - but let me tell you, they did a terrific job. I absolutely love the 10-min video they made for us and I'm so glad my mom decided to hire Jayna for the big day. Knowing what I know now, I would budget in for Jayna and her crew because the video is something you're going to have for life - and it isn't one of those cheesy ones!

When working on the budget for their wedding, hiring a videographer was not high on the list of priorities for my son and his bride to be. After the fact, having seen the video created by Jayna, my son and daughter-in-law are thrilled to have the beautiful video which absolutely captures the essence of their special day. Having shared this video with friends who were at the wedding, I was surprised to hear one say that she had not even noticed there was a videographer present for the event, much less 2 of them. Very professional, creative and worth every penny!

We absolutely LOVE our long video and highlight video! Peri and her team just did an amazing job!

After the wedding was over, my husband and I said - WOW how is the day over? I know everyone says it, but your wedding day will go by faster than you can imagine. However, when we got our wedding video we got to relive every moment - which literally brought tears to my eyes. They captured the most important moments along with the special little moments that my husband and I didn't notice (which are almost my favorite now). It really is amazing how wonderful the video turned out and how they captured the wedding day so perfectly. My niece and nephew say it is their favorite movie and ask to watch it all the time (still after almost a year).

I will say that I was worried about having a videographer at first because I was not crazy about having a video camera following us around all day, but it was not the way at all! They just blended into everything going on around them. They did give us some direction on what to do in a couple situations, and am so happy for that because it all turned out so well in the video.

Also, Peri and her team are extremely professional. When talking to them about services and price Peri was very helpful and gave me all sorts of options that would fit in my budget. She also was quite prompt with all her responses!

Thank you so much Big Time, we are so so happy that we can relive our wedding day over and over again!!

We are extremely happy with our wedding video from Peri Basseri at BigTime Video Services. Prior to the wedding, Peri was extremely accessible and always willing to get on the phone to discuss what we wanted from the video. She was also really accommodating in terms of creating a package that really fit our needs. On our wedding day, Peri and her team were very professional, and we hardly felt their presence at all as they were filming throughout the ceremony and reception. I know that we will treasure this wedding video for years to come, and I am so glad that we chose Peri to capture our special day.

To be honest, videography was an after-thought for our wedding. We originally hadn't budgeted for it thinking that it would be an unnecessary cost. After talking with a lot of friends about it, they all urged me to hire a videographer. I'm so happy I did! Our wedding went by so quickly and I am so happy that I have a video of the day! Peri was incredible. She was super easy to work with and very professional. While we were on our honeymoon, we got a surprise email from Peri. Even though we had not paid her to edit our wedding video, she edited a small video for us. We got to relive our wedding on our honeymoon! I not only 100% recommend hiring a videographer, but I recommend Big Time Video if you are getting married in the Monterey/Salinas area!

They were so professional, and a number of our friends and family are now letting us know they had NO IDEA someone was there doing video recording! Yet they managed to get some of the best footage. So glad to have such a beautiful film that captures the greatest day of our lives.

We really love the results that Peri Basseri at BigTime Video Services produced with our wedding video. Their two-camera coverage and excellent editing made our ten minute video a fantastic wedding remembrance. The feedback we've gotten from friends who didn't even attend is that it looked marvelous. The video has literally brought tears to folks who didn't even attend. From folks who did attend, they have literally said it's the best wedding video they seen. They did a great job shooting and a great job editing in music caught on site with music delivered from the studio. In shooting he was unobtrusive, yet omnipresent. The only shame of never getting married again is not being able to hire Big Time again!

The video has literally brought tears to folks who didn't even attend. From folks who did attend, they have literally said it's the best wedding video they seen. They did a great job shooting and a great job editing in music caught on site with music delivered from the studio. In shooting he was unobtrusive, yet omnipresent. The only shame of never getting married again is not being able to hire Big Time again! Read less

My videographer was so sweet, she made me feel comfortable in front of the camera. I don't really like myself in video so it was a little awkward for me at first but she just told me to pretend there isn't a camera and just act natural do whatever you want play with your hair, make up, touch my dress or look at my veil and what not. She focused on both my husband and I equally, unlike my photographer who only focused on me and would get in my videographer's way. She asked great questions and when I was just so caught up in the moment and couldn't come up with an answer she just moved right along instead of waiting and making me feel on the spot or dumb. Nonetheless I am ecstatic about my video and will definitely use Big Time Video again in the future.

Peri was very helpful throughout the planning process. First, we had to delay our wedding due to my husband's military duty, and Peri was very flexible and helped us modify all the paperwork. She was also patient as we were juggling the wedding and a move from the East Coast to the West Coast. The day of she was on time, and again flexible and patient as we were behind schedule. She was very responsive when it came to editing. My husband and I are both analysts for a living and can be somewhat picky, but we were so pleased with the final product!

We had no idea it’d be so awesome... As we were planning our wedding, we thought a video recording of the ceremony and reception was going to be a great way to capture the day forever. Having seen videos from siblings and friends' weddings shot by videographers in other cities, the products ranged from pretty good to slightly boring... So hoping for the best, we called Peri at Big Time Video and she agreed to help us out. Peri met with us and we discussed all aspects of our wedding plans - she gave us great advice and we developed a plan to get the coverage we wanted most. Peri and her assistant, Jayna, were well prepared on wedding day, and blended very well with the event, capturing key moments in a very unobtrusive way. After the wedding, Peri sent a link to some samples of her post-production work from our big day. I was able to share the clip with my 4 sisters who are all married. Each is SO envious of the treasure Peri has created from our wedding day. Her work is superb. The full video is absolutely romantic, beautiful, engaging, scenic, and it captured so much of the people and little events of the day – things we would have ever seen, but are so sweet. Her timing, technique, and easy spirit put us all at ease - the DVD is an absolute treasure! We are so glad we asked Peri to work with us – we both agree that Peri not only captured the day, but her artistry made it so wonderfully romantic and so truly captivating. One sister said: “if you ever fight, just pull out that DVD and you can’t help but fall in love all over again”. Whatever event you're trying to capture, you can't go wrong with Peria and the Big Time Video crew...They make magic! -Kathy and Marc Anderson

Big Time Video Services created a lovely video of our wedding ceremony and reception. It captured the essential moments that meant so much to John and I. They also did a photo montage that displayed pictures of our youth thru adulthood. Both the video and photo montage were truly amazing, sincere, and heartfelt.

We were very impressed with the professionalism and friendly faces of Big Time Video Services. They were warm and very accommodating. We would recommend Big Time Video Services to anybody looking for a videographer.

Thank you so much!!!

As the groom I had only a few tasks in my wedding. One of which was hiring the videographer. My main concern was video quality and I ended up watching way more wedding videos than I had ever wanted to. It was a daunting task but one of the things that caught my eye about BigTime was how good their videos look. My next priority was of course price. From start to finish BigTime did a wonderful job and scored me points with my wife.
The pricing was better than anything I could find for what we wanted, which was basically getting everything possible on film. Peri had filmed our wedding venue before so we knew exactly what we would get and she took care of all the shots with out any problems. We actually picked our Officiant after seeing him in one of her videos!
During the ceremony she was very discreet and I only remember noticing her once or twice. She got some funny and touching interviews with guests and family and managed to capture everything we missed during our hectic day.
In the end, my wife said it is the best movie she has ever seen. Even the highlight reel was a tear-jerker. More than just capturing the footage, BigTime really shines in their editing. How they condensed a whole day into two hours, much less a 5 minute highlight and still capturing the essence of our wedding is absolutely amazing. We are extremely happy and it was definitely money well spent.

Jayna was a a pleasure to work with on the day of and I love video she put together, she was very timely and professional.
I would highly recommend Big Time Video for your special day.

We were extremely happy with how our wedding video came out. We had a large amount of guests are at the wedding which made things quite a bit more expensive, and so I debated as to whether I should spend the money on a videographer. I am so glad I did! The wedding day goes by so fast (and my memory seems not be as sharp as it once was), so it is such a blessing to have the whole day beautifully captured on film.

Peri and her crew are not obtrusive or annoying with their video cameras; in fact, I hardly remember them being there. Peri also has a variety of packages she offers in order to work with different price points.

I looked at a couple of different videographers, but I really like Peri’s elegant and intimate style. She is an expert at capturing the most special moments. When I sent out the link to our video, I got e-mails back from my bridesmaids saying that they had tears in their eyes…..I didn’t cry at my wedding, but seeing the video definitely made me teary!

Again, if you are debating whether or not to get a videographer….do it! And chose Peri!

Big Time and Peri Basseri recently videotaped my wedding and I can't say enough poitives about the job she did for us. Coming in, I was skeptical on whether we even needed a videographer as I figured still pictures and memories would be fine. The wedding turned out to be an even more beautiful and emotional day than I had imagined it could be, and Peri managed to capture every single key aspect of the day.

I don't have alot of recollection of even noticing I was being videotaped- Peri blended into the event seamlessly. When we watched the final DVD my wife and her parents cried again as if they were back at the ceremony. I am very happy we had a videographer of Peri's caliber and I would highly reccommend Big Time!

During the planning phase, we were contemplating whether or not to use a videographer for our wedding but we were convinced by some of our married friends to do it as a great way to capture the day for posterity. We are so happy now that we decided to do it and are especially lucky to have found and used Big Time Video Services. Picking Peri and her team was one of the best decisions we made for the wedding.

We first met Peri at her studio in Monterey and found her to be very personable, friendly, and warm. We liked her immediately. We even got a little emotional viewing some of the wedding videos she was currently editing. It was obvious to us she is very passionate and loves what she does.

On the day of our wedding Peri and her colleague were very easy to work with. They made us feel very comfortable and not overly directed. She is a true professional who also worked along very well with our photographer and wedding planner.

When we got our 7 min video of our ceremony and reception highlights we could not have been happier. It was brilliantly edited and showcased the best moments of the day. Peri is a talented videographer and editor who knows how to capture the right moments of the wedding without it becoming tedious. We felt very proud to share this video with our family and friends and to other relatives and friends who could not attend. We will cherish this video for years!!

BigTime Video has allowed my husband and I to enjoy our wedding over and over again. My husband was not sold on the idea of having a videographer at our wedding. After receiving the final product, he now can't imagine being without it. On your wedding day, you are so focused on the experience and the emotions going on inside of you and with your partner, that it is hard to take a step back and really take in the moment. I suppose any videographer can put a camera up and attempt to catch the mood and flavor of the wedding, but not like BigTime Video.

BigTime Video has allowed my husband and I to enjoy our wedding over and over again. My husband was not sold on the idea of having a videographer at our wedding. After receiving the final product, he now can't imagine being without it. On your wedding day, you are so focused on the experience and the emotions going on inside of you and with your partner, that it is hard to take a step back and really take in the moment. I suppose any videographer can put a camera up and attempt to catch the mood and flavor of the wedding, but not like BigTime Video.

My advice is to determine what you would like filmed and have a vision of the story built into your filming schedule. We didn't decide on having our wedding filmed until about three weeks before hand - we had been taking dancing lessons all summer and decided we especially wanted our efforts filmed. Peri was a pleasure to work with and was very flexible and offered a good amount of direction for what should be filmed. We are very pleased with the final highlight video- it captured so many key moments and will be enjoyable to watch in the years to come.

Peri and Big Time Video created an amazing video of our wedding. We just received the final product (a 10-minute short film) and we couldn't be happier with the way it turned out. Peri did a great job of capturing the emotion of the day with great camera work that consists of steady shots and nicely framed images and her top-notch, professional editing. Peri has been a pleasure to work with and she was one of our favorite wedding vendors. She's friendly, professional and quickly responds to both emails and phone calls. She's also very flexible. When I asked her to make some minor edits to our film, she was very understanding and made the edits right away. As an added bonus, Big Time uses state of the art equipment and shoots in HD, which was something that was important to my husband. We're very excited that Peri is making a copy of our movie in Blu-ray.

I cannot say enough about Big Time Video Services!! I was a frantic bride as I was marrying a man in the military and his orders were changed at the last minute. Our wedding that was planning in Virginia was suddenly canceled and I was rebooking everything last minute in Monterey, CA! I called Peri at Big Time and with less than 3 months to go, she made it happen and I am so glad she did. Peri, Patrick and crew are GREAT to work with. I was able to chat with her on the phone quite a bit and meet with them in person before the wedding. They took the time to discuss every detail with me and get a good idea of what we wanted.

Everything went well on the big day and Patrick and Charles were great. Every moment, detail and emotion was captured and my husband and I cried out way through watching it for the first time. They produced more than just a video for us...they made a movie of our day and we could not be more thrilled with the finished product.

If you are getting married in the Monterey area, there's only one place you need to go for your video! You will not be disappointed!

Ahhhhh to wedding plan and find everyone who will be working that day to help capture all your memories is a pretty hard decision.........We were at the end of making ALL our big decisions for our wedding and Big Time Video was the missing piece to our wedding team. Between Amy Bryd Weddings, DNA and Kim Lemiare we just heard so many raves about them all working together so we new that Big Time Video was what we needed. As a Bride (who is pretty camera shy), Patrick did a great job of not making me feel uncomfortable in a way, honestly I felt like they were never there. Which we loved!!! He really went out of his way to make sure he got the best parts of our wedding. The most important thing for my husband was to have a amazing video which captured all the love that was around us......"oh and for it to be high-def."<---- such a guy thing! lol. Thanks again for making an amazing video!!!1 Love, The Ferrito's <3

When my husband and I started planning our wedding, neither one of us thought that we needed or wanted to have a videographer. However, when we realized that some of our closest family and friends weren't going to be able to attend our wedding, we decided that hiring a videographer was a must.

Big Time Video Services was on our wedding location's recommended vendor list, and after working with Peri and her team, I can understand why. Peri is energetic, friendly, and very professional. She is easy to communicate with and always quick to respond to any questions or concerns.

Patrick and Charles did an outstanding job capturing all the smiles and laughter, tears and tender moments of our wedding day. They were never bothersome or obtrusive. In fact, my husband and I, and even our guests, hardly noticed they were there.

When Peri sent me the completed wedding highlights video, I couldn't believe what an amazing job they had done. From the visuals, to the music and audio clips, the video completely captured the look and feel of our wedding day. It told such an emotional and touching story and it is one that my husband and I have enjoyed watching over and over again. I would highly recommend Big Time Video Services to anyone!

WE loved Peri and the Big Time Video team! For us, it was the best money we spent on our wedding and here's why. As a bride you are told over and over again how quickly your big day goes by and you think "ya, but I'm really going to stop and enjoy the day". The good news is we really did, but you still miss so much and your head is spinning with excitement, family, loved ones and of course your new husband/wife. Big time video did a GREAT job on getting all the little moments that you will treausure for a lifetime to come. I remember watching it for the first time and getting toally choked up saying "I can't believe how perfectly that they got that moment!". We sent it out to our family and friends and go comments like "wow! that's the best wedding video i've ever seen, and I don't even like these things!". We also heard "it brought the whole amazing day back to real time and we loved every second of it!". Of course as the bride and groom, we are over the moon that we have the whole day captured so we can watch it over and over - Thanks Peri! We love it!

Peri and Bigtime Video gave us a perfect wedding video! When we were planning for the wedding everyone's advise was to get a videographer; people who didn't have one said it was their biggest regret and people who did get one said the video was the best memento they had of their wedding. Luckily I took their advice and found Peri. Everyone was right it is absolutely the best memento of the day! They did a wonderful job matching the look and feel of the video to our wedding. I had seen many companies sample videos and can say without a doubt that I think ours came out the best. Tasteful yet romantic, emotional but not sappy, great shots of the guests and the whole thing put together beautifully. It really captured the essence of the day. I highly recommend Peri and Bigtime Video!

Working with Peri was a dream. From our initial phone conversation until final delivery of the DVDs, she was responsive and easy to work with. She's organized, helpful, and she goes out of her way to deliver a product you'll be happy with. Peri even helped us out by recommending locations for some of our other events. Superb! And the DVD is beautiful and funny all at once. It's a perfect reflection of us and our day.

When Jason & I first started planning our wedding, I had already dug my heels in about not having a videographer on our wedding day. I’ve been a bridesmaid in a lot of weddings and I’ve seen some pretty pushy and obnoxious videographers. We were planning a very intimate beachside ceremony in Monterey and I felt it would be too intrusive to have a videographer there.

Then we decided to have a celebration party for all our friends and family that weren’t able to attend our wedding and do a movie premier theme to show our wedding video. I was still determined not involve a videographer! I thought we could just set a video camera up in the corner and let it rip! How hard could it be, right? ;)

My mom and sister STRONGLY encouraged me to contact a videographer since we were building the entire party theme around having a quality video. So I grudgingly did.

I am happy to say that I was sooooo wrong about everything!

I contacted Peri and Big Time Video through my vendor list and from my first interaction with her I knew it was a wise choice to use her services. Her sincerity and professionalism came shining through! It is obvious that she is an artist that loves her work and she works hard to dispel the preconceived notions about videography.

Our wedding video is my most favorite thing about our wedding day…other than marrying the love of my life!!! It is a multidimensional sensory experience that pictures just cannot capture—no matter who your photographer is!
Peri and Jana captured all the energy, emotion, music, and vocal nuances of one of the most magical day of our lives! The visual experience of being able to relive it all in a beautifully choreographed time capsule is invaluable to me. I am so utterly grateful that my mom & sister demanded that I revisit the idea of having a videographer!

And lastly I would like to add something about the interviews that they did. It is so special to have our parents and family members’ well wishes and expressions of love captured on film. Our families tend to be very shy and I didn’t want them feeling harassed. Peri is definitely a people person and was able to (in a very gentle, professional and often humorous way) create a space in which my family felt very comfortable opening up to her and sharing their stories.

I will treasure our wedding video forever. There really aren’t enough words to describe how special it is to see yourself, your husband to be, family and friends in the throes of love and celebration and to know that this moment is captured in real time, for all time.

We are very happy we decided to get a videographer - and couldn't be happier we chose Peri at Big Time Video. Peri was extremely easy to work with throughout the process, was great to have at the wedding and we absolutely love the finished product (as does everyone in our family). We cannot imagine being without the wonderful memories on DVD of the ceremony, toasts, dancing and everything else we missed while busy with pictures, etc. The quality of the finished video is amazing - Peri blended our music choices perfectly with wonderful footage of the whole afternoon, truly making it "our" video. During the wedding day itself, Peri and her crew were totally unobtrusive - my wife didn't even notice any cameras at the ceremony - yet they captured every part of the day we wanted. We are so thankful we got a videographer - and Peri and Big Time Video was a perfect choice. We highly recommend them to anyone!

Peri and Big Time Video made a fabulous video for our wedding. She is amazing! Her video captured the magic of our day and our families cannot watch it enough times! The interviews she has with the guests create a precious collection for the long version of the video and her highlights videos are just magical. At first, I did not think we needed a videographer, but now I couldn't imagine having a wedding without a professional videographer to capture the memories of your special day -- from the dancing, the toasts, the laughter. Take my advice, use her as your videographer and you'll thank me that you did!

Both me and my husband would strongly recommend Big Time Video Services. We are so happy that we went with them!! Peri was amazing and she captured our wedding day perfectly! We watch our wedding DVD all the time and we still shed tears of happiness. And the editing and the final product is truly magical!
Both me and my husband agree that we would not change a thing about our wedding DVD because it is simply perfect! "Our dream wedding video come true."

All our family is so in love with the video too, they love to watch it because Peri (and some of her crew) captured all the beautiful moments, but at the same time Peri has this way of capturing it all without being obtrusive! I was amazed on how we never even realized we were being filmed, it was wonderful!

Our experience with Peri at Big Time Video Services was wonderful and we would not change it for the world. Thank you so much Peri!

Having a video of my low key wedding seemed a bit over the top, but by far it was the best investment of our big day. The moment happens so quickly that being able to see how beautiful the moments actually are live tells a far greater story than pictures.

Having a video of my low key wedding seemed a bit over the top, but by far it was the best investment of our big day. The moment happens so quickly that being able to see how beautiful the moments actually are live tells a far greater story than pictures. The only reason I didn't give 5/5 is I would have liked to know ahead of time that music choices would be required so the editing process didn't have to be postponed.

We always alert our clients that music selection will be needed from them before we begin editing.

In this case, Ashlee was booked through a third party and not contracted directly with us so they didn't let her know.

We decided to utilize a videographer at the last minute. Jayna, from Big Time Video was very responsive and helpful. The day of, she was very nice and organized, even giving direction to my husband and I when we were awkwardly cutting the cake and unsure of what we were doing with no vendor coordinator in sight! Jayna was there when we needed her and blended in seamlessly when we didn't. She only appeared in the background of one photo and was very respectful of the photographer. When we received our approval copy, I was amazed to see it was a very digestible hour and did not leave anything out. I was hoping for a few more interviews with my guests, but I think that was due more to the awkwardness of our families and not Jayna's lack of trying. I was worried my video would be a cheesy slog to get through and I would never watch it again, but Jayna did a great job editing it and listened to the feedback I gave her on nit-picky details. Can't wait to get the finished product!

Peri was amazing! She was so friendly, I really enjoyed talking to her on the phone prior to the wedding. It was as though we already knew eachother. She was very organized and professional gathering all the information needed to make our special day as perfect as it could be! She was very helpful giving us advice and ideas from her past experiences. On the wedding day she was everywhere she needed to be yet hidden in the background, it didn't feel as if a camera was in your face all night. Yet, she captured every single moment! When my husband and I watched our final copy of our video we loved it! She did an amazing job!!!! The video captured the day and all the special and funny moments from beginning to end. Well worth the money! I'm so glad we chose to have her! We highly recommend her! Thanks so much Peri!!!!

Contact with Peri never rendered a time where we wondered if we were going to hear from her in regards to our questions about her services, all the way through the final editing of our video. We definitely would use her services again and recommend her to anyone in the Monterey/Central California coast area.

Peri and her team did a fabulous job at our Carmel wedding in August of 08. She was easy to work with from start to finish! During the actual day, she managed to get all the shots we could have ever wanted, without being invasive (most often we didn't even notice her and her crew at work). During the editing process, she did the work to find and incorporate several of the songs from the event. She also included a voice over of our vows. The final product is seem less (and made me cry). Best of all though, she seemed genuinely excited to participate in our day ! She even called me as soon as the video went on line to let me know!!!

Most of my guests didn't even notice I had a videographer at my wedding. Big Time's ability to blend into the background while still being able to capture magical moments of my wedding day blew me away. Big Time is more that just a company who comes in on the day of your wedding and gets footage of the first dance, cake cutting, etc. They get to know you on a personal level before your wedding day arrives in order to get inspired by your vision of your day. The end result is a video that you will cherish forever.

Then she compiled a great video incorporating our favorites songs with the lyrics right on cue with the imagery. She even edited and made a clip of our best man's toast which was one of the highlights of the reception.

We hired Peri based on recommendations from our vendors, The Lodge at Pebble Beach and Highlands Inn, and we were extremely happy and satisfied with their service and the final highlights video. I didn't even meet up with Peri before the actual wedding day!

On the actual wedding day, Peri and her assistant were friendly, helpful and fun to work with, in fact most of the time we barely even noticed their presence as they shot their footage.

When we finally got our highlights video, we were extremely happy with the result. Not only did they have great footage of us, but also really got the whole feel of the wedding. I gave Peri minimal instructions or directions on how we wanted the video to be, but she really had it nailed down, and the highlights video was a perfect 10 minute representation of what our wedding was like.

Also, one of the best things about Peri, is that she is timely and quick to respond to anything that I needed to consult or ask her about. She always got back to me, and when you have a million other things to take care of, having one less thing to worry about and a vendor that you can really count on makes a world of difference!

We would highly recommend their services!

Peri's video services are one of a kind. I researched video services for weeks and watched many video company samples and Peri's sample videos were by far the best. Many companies simply added music to video clips. Peri's videos told a very emotional story (it was like watching a mini-movie). Watch her promo video and you will see what I mean.

Our wedding video turned out perfect! She used the music I picked out along with her own ideas to create a very touching mini-movie of our special day. Peri cleverly weaved in real audio from the day and edited the video clips to fit the music perfectly. The best part of her service was that she focused on the important things that were a reflection of how the day really went.

A word of advice to anyone getting married: When you are the bride and groom, you miss a lot of things at your own wedding. The day goes by in a blink of an eye. Getting a good videographer is one of the best things you can do. We LOVE our video!!

Here are some comments from family and friends who watched our video:

This was absolutely FANTASTIC!...P. Moss

Working with Peri at Big Time Video was fantastic! We deceided to get a videographer about 1 month before the wedding, and we are SO GLAD we did! Peri captured all of the moments we wanted (the big ones - like toasts, first dance and cake cutting) but also the other moments we didn't expect or get to see (our friends and family talking, laughing, enjoying themselves!) I show the video to anyone that will watch and can't get enough of it! Peri was responsive on email to our thoughts, questions and really easy to work with. I would strongly recommend Peri and Big Time Video.

I hesitated for a while before deciding to hire a videographer to film our wedding, but I’m very happy that I did. Peri at BigTime did an amazing job and I absolutely love the video. What I liked the most is the way she matched music to what was going on. Everybody loved the video and it was amazing to relive those moments again, and even cry again- I would be very sad if I didn’t have this video. With little guidance from me Peri made an incredible video and I am very happy with her work – the video is amazing. She did capture many great moments.

I do think that she is pretty expensive. However, I originally only contracted one camera for the whole thing, but Peri brought another camera free of charge for me to film the ceremony, and she did upload the whole video for me on her blog which she normally doesn’t do. I decided to have just a little “creative editing” option to cut costs, which ended up being plenty and the video is great. After I received the first version I only had a couple of minor things I wanted different and Peri corrected them very quickly and nicely. I should also mention that she responds very quickly and is easy to communicate with.

I was a little worried about the video since I haven’t actually met with Peri prior to the wedding but there is nothing to worry about as it turns out. For future brides though I recommend to have a lot of communication and telling the videographer what exactly you want and don’t, otherwise you will have to do it during the actual wedding. Also, make sure you communicate with both the videographer and your photographer for a more smooth cooperation. This kind of stuff can be talked about prior to the event, which I didn’t because I was so crazy busy planning everything else.

Overall I am very happy and pleased with Peri’s work. I think you can actually watch my full video on her blog which she did specially for me :)

We procrastinated on booking our videographer, but thankfully, Big Time Video was happy to oblige. The videographers were always where the action was and didn't miss a shot. They were also very timely in getting our DVDs to us. Peri was also took great shots of the setting and captured the mood of the wedding.

Perri is great. She loves what she does and it shines through her work. She was excited for our wedding from the day I booked her services until the day she delivered the video. It wasn't just another wedding for her which made us very excited!

Big Time Video did an excellent job in capturing our special moments and editing our wedding video. The video is very enjoyable to watch over and over again as it is created as one's own personal movie. Peri was awesome to work with and she has a skill about her that causes guests to open up on camera when they would tend to shy away from it. This added to the overall presentation of the video and we've received so many compliments from family and friends who have watched it.

Peri has a great personality and is extremely professional. She knows how to work well with photographers in sharing the time and space. Peri also offered great recommendations as to locations and schedules which was very helpful to us as we weren't too familiar with the area. It was a great customer experience from beginning to end and would definitely recommend Big Time Video to others. Peri took good care of us and would love for her to cover our anniversary party!

Working with BigTime Video Services and Peri Basseri, the owner and visionary, was a great experience. From my first call with Peri she was extremely helpful, down to earth and just sort of got it. At our first meeting with Peri, I knew we would work with her as this feeling continued. I really appreciated her genuine care and attitude, there is nothing high pressure and that is very important in enjoying the time we spend together and getting the best, most authentic wedding video. Peri obviously loves what she does, she listens to clients and provides a great end product. We will enjoy our wedding video for years to come!!

I really enjoy my wedding video, she caught things I never knew happened. My guest did not really like being put on the spot and interviewed, but it turned out funny. It was a little traditional for our style but I still love it!!!!!

We decided sort of last minute to do a video, and practically as soon as the the day was over we were talking about how we couldnt wait to see the video. We chose the three song video, which captured all of our favorite moments of the big day. Watching the video is like reliving the day-which is wonderful! It is also perfect for sharing with people who were not able to attend.

We never met with Perri, we were planning from a distance, but she was very good at responding to emails. Jayna did our editting and she checked with us to see if we wanted anything in the video changed before finalizing it, which was nice. We are very glad we have this video to remember our day!
