I have been married for 8 months and I still have not received my wedding video. I have already paid in full, per Mr. Sarkinen's requirements, and thus have no ability to withhold funds until he sends me the finished project, which he has been promising to do since June (7 months ago). I was not in a rush to receive my video and was polite and understanding when he failed to meet his own deadlines, but at this point I remain at his mercy and my only recourse seems to be to warn other brides not to use this vendor.

Bryan was a real pleasure to work with! He was very professional, but during the day of the wedding it was like he wasn't even there. He didn't have me doing anything contrived, and his responsiveness was very prompt!

I actually requested raw footage from him, because we were on a tight budget, but the footage came out perfectly. He copied it onto my HD as well as onto CD's for me. I can't wait to start editing on my own... but if I find out the task is too daunting, I may go back and ask him to work on it!

Thanks again Bryan!

Bryan is an excellent videographer. He has a great eye and listens to what you want. The day of my wedding, I didn't even know he was there! No cameras or lights in your face. Once I saw the footage, I was amazed at how much he captured. I had a large wedding and therefore had 2 videographers and they were able to capture every single moment of the day.
He provided us with the raw footage that was really fun to watch and when we got the edited DVDs, they were really great. He does a really nice job of editing the videos. I couldn't be happier with my wedding DVD.
Now you must be wondering why I've given him such a low score. Bryan does not stick to any deadlines in his contract, or any type of acceptable deadline. Per our contract, raw footage was to be provided in 4 weeks and the edited DVD in 2 months. I think we got the raw footage 3 or 4 months after the wedding, though I don't remember the exact time. However, we received the edited DVD 10.5 months after the wedding, no exaggeration. I got married in August and started getting frustrated around January. From January to July, he kept setting unrealistic timeframes when I'd follow up- he'd have it done in 2 weeks, 3 weeks, by March 10th, etc. Everytime he set a timeframe, I'd follow up on the last day only to have another timeframe set. This went on for 6 months until I received it. Had he set my expectations from the beginning it probably wouldn't be a problem but I was not happy. I think weddings are like a secondary job to Bryan because he always seems to be working on TV shows and stuff. What he fails to realize is that you can throw all the big names and TV networks at me as you want...I don't care!!! I want my wedding video!!!
Now my sister is getting married this summer and my dad signed Bryan again, now that we know what to expect in regards to timing. He is also withholding some of the payment until the video is received which I had not done. I was shocked to see that his contract still has the same 1 and 2 month deadlines. I was also shocked to see that a 5 minute edit for streaming/downloading was to be available in addition to the raw footage and edited video. I reached out to Bryan to get this for my wedding and I'm going through the same thing over again. He promised it by last week and when I followed up, he said it will be ready at the end of April.
Long story short, Bryan is a great videographer and the finished product is excellent but it is very frustrating waiting for it and constantly being promised false deadlines.

Bryan was in the top 3 vendors that we hired for our wedding. He got every moment of the wedding on camera, including many that my photographer didn't capture and others that I never knew even happened. He blended in to the background of the day seamlessly. I never found an annoying camera or microphone in my face. His editing produced a charming and modern wedding video that isn't at all boring or dull. Overall, I would 100% recommend Bryan to any of my friends getting married (and I already have) and use him if I needed another videographer for any future occasion.

Bryan was awesome to work with on our wedding day. He's a true artist and a professional. He arrived early and was completely prepared. He worked so skillfully and with such ease that you hardly knew he was there. We were very impressed with the final product. His shooting and editing skills are top notch and he has a great eye for capturing natural moments. I highly recommend Bryan. I would absolutely work with him again in the future.

Lara and I watched our wedding video this past Sunday evening when we finally had a few moments to ourselves and nothing demanding our immediate attention. We wanted to let you know that we simply loved it. The hour of viewing flew by and I think we were smiling the entire time. During the first few days of our honeymoon we replayed the events of our wedding day and noted the really special moments that we hoped had been captured on tape. To watch the video and see that you somehow managed to capture almost every one of them, well, we just don't know how you did it. We thank you so much for creating a video that perfectly eternalizes this day for us. Everything--the music, the effects, the editing--is top notch and your professionalism all along the way is so appreciated. We're thrilled with the results.

Bryan is talented. The high definition recording of my wedding was phenomenal. My wife and I received the entire footage which accounted to about 6-7 hours of recording, which we enjoyed it all again, 2 weeks after the wedding, when we returned from our honeymoon. The raw footage was amazing in many ways, because he caught everything else we missed during the wedding. And Bryan captured everything beyond our expectations.

He followed us to the photo-session after the wedding, and then to the reception, needless to say, he was professional all the way. Soon after, we also asked him to edit the video into 1hr, and this is the copy we mailed to family and friends. He followed our wishes to include certain parts of the wedding, and to include selected music, and in the end, the final product was just perfect. (Not to mention a 10 minute promo that we put on Facebook and Youtube to share with friends right away.)

I recommend Bryan sincerely, he does have a talent for filming and editing. He is also a great guy. I hope you get to experience his services. Best wishes!
