Are you a commercial studio or a home-based business?
Home based.
Do you offer demo DVDs for potential clients to look at?
Video is available on the website and blog or samples can be sent upon request.
What types, such as unedited footage or special effects, of videography do you offer?
We Custom-build each package uniquely for every couple. We also offer Raw Footage for those who want it.
Describe any special editing services you offer:
Same-Day Editing - Allow us to capture your Wedding Ceremony, and then present an edited montage later in the day at the Reception. This is an incredible "wow" moment for you and your guests, and our specialty. Now offering "Slow Motion Video Booths." It's the HOTTEST trend on the West Coast and soon will be at every wedding!
Do you have lighting equipment to accommodate a more dimly-lit event?
Yes, lighting is required although we do not normally use lighting in churches due to church rules/regulations. With HD, lighting is extremely important at the Reception, and all of our lights are professional and are diffused through umbrellas, making them soft and not an eye-sore for the crowd.
How many videographers do you work with?
We have a team of Videographers, and you can have up to 2 Videographers with 3 Cameras at your event.
Does the client get to meet the videographers before the event?
I allow every couple the opportunity to meet with their videographer...however, more recently, we get a lot of out-of-state couples where this is not possible, which is why we offer extensive and easy online communication before and after the wedding day.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes. In 13 years and over 600 weddings, I have never missed an event, even with family emergencies, bad weather, or other occurrences.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
We can accomodate 3 wedding events on any particular day before we are booked out completely. Most weekends in May - Sept book up completely up to 12 months in advance, so it is always a good thing to plan ahead.
Do you have a replacement videographer in case you become unavailable on the event day?
Yes, a complete backup system is in place on the day of every event.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
Cameras, tripods, bags, lights, etc.
Do you bring backup equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes, including additional cameras, batteries, cords, bulbs, and tape.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
I NEVER "require" a meal break, but if food is given to us at dinner, we do not charge for that hour...that would just be wrong!
Do you charge overtime?
We never "clock out" at your wedding. However, if you hired us to film until a certain time, we will approach you if the event is running super-late, with the option to have us stay longer.
Do you give access to your raw footage?
We offer Raw Footage for an additional cost due to the footage having to be converted to DVD/Blu-Ray for viewing. With some weddings yielding over 10 hours of footage, this process can be time-consuming, thus, the additional charge.
Do you reserve the right to use the video in the future for deals, contents, etc.?
Yes, our contract states that we can use footage from your wedding for promotional purposes only, however we never disclose the last names of any of our clients.
Is the client involved in the editing process? If so, how much input does the client have in editing?
Yes. Prior to the wedding, the couple is sent a series of "Video Questionnaires" where they have the opportunity to provide as much, or as little, input into the video as they would like, including music, style, and what is captured. Most videos are a blend of couples' input with our expert creative touch.
How long does it take for the client to get the final video?
The average turn-around time is 3-8 months from the time of the wedding until the day the video is received. We also offer "VIP Editing" expediting services.
Do you require a minimum number of hours to book?
Since we Customize to every couple, this is negotiable.

We could not have been happier with ALL aspects of Complete Video Solutions & Tom Santilli. Tom's response time was literally immediate every time we needed to communicate with him (prior to AND after the wedding). I actually think he must have his smart phone tethered to his body -- he had a way of making you feel like his only customer, and this was beyond appreciated!!! Tom's wonderful professional yet warm & personable presence the day of the wedding was noticed by everyone - and put our daughter, the bride, and her very nervous husband-to-be at great ease. Even some of our guests mentioned to me later what a 'great guy' the videographer was. I couldn't have agreed more. But the finished video was the PRIZE! It was everything we had hoped for & more. Our daughter & her new hubby absolutely LOVE re-living their precious day. And as "mom of the bride" / wedding planner (who barely remembers the whirlwind day), I've watched it many times & have cried many tears of joy. Tom followed all of our requests exactly as we had asked - and captured all of the very best moments in the very best way put to all of our daughter & son-in-law's special music. The beautiful 'end-cap' he created at the end of the video is just amazing & wraps up a day filled with beautiful lifetime memories for our daughter & son-in-law. AND - when we needed some 'post-production' editing done (due to OUR mistake, not Tom's), he was MORE than available & willing to do whatever we asked - at hardly any cost to us. We are SO grateful for the job that Tom Santilli did and cannot be more enthusiastic about recommending COMPLETE VIDEO SOLUTIONS!

We were overwhelmed when we first began to research videographers. We obviously wanted top-quality, but were on a budget. We contacted and met with a variety of vendors. It appeared we either had to spend a ton of money for good quality or go the budget route and be less than impressed. That was until we met with Tom Santilli from Complete Video Solutions.

From the moment we met Tom and his adorable dog Brando, we felt at ease with the whole process. He’s an everyday guy with incredible talent. He wowed us with his mix of professionalism and down-to-earth personality. By the time we left his place, we knew he was the one.

Tom always made it a point to call or email us right back and always answered every question in perfect detail. Even though he is very busy, he always made us feel important.

From day one, Tom always made sure we were comfortable with the process. He also listens to what your vision is for your video. Many videographers want it done their way only. Tom takes your vision and uses his artistic abilities and experience to create an amazing video.

On the wedding day, Tom was right on time. He has a way of capturing every detail without being noticed or in the way. He’s very flexible and had no issue deviating from what he was doing when we asked for a specific shot.

Once our big day had come and gone, Tom stayed in constant contact updating us with the progress of our video and answering any questions we had immediately.

We can’t thank Tom enough for everything he did for us. We will always be thankful for the wonderful memories we have thanks to the amazing video he created. The quality and detail amazes everyone that watches it! It turned out better than we ever imagined!

We could say Tom is the best for your money, but that would be doing him a disservice. Tom is simply the best videographer.

Thanks Tom! We’ll never forget all you did to make our special day a memory we can relive forever!

Right from the first phone call, Tom is willing to work with you on budget and finding exactly what you need. I did have to wait several months for the video, but it was definitely worth the wait. When we posted the 4 minute sneak peak on facebook, several friends commented best wedding video they have ever seen. After watching the whole video we couldnt be more thrilled. He captured all the great moments with great detail. He was even able to provide me with high quality stills of details that were missed by our photographer. His responsiveness is great, and he is a pleasure to work with for sure. Very happy customers!

I booked with Tom through an internet special.. I have to say I was pretty nervous come our wedding day, because I had never met him in person.. Afterwards there was absolutely NO reason to be nervous! Complete Video Solutions is the best bang for your buck! Our video is absolutely breathtaking... The quality of this video is more than I could have ever asked for... I contacted Tom after the wedding wanting to change a couple things about our editing and he was more than accommodating.. I would recommend him to anyone! :) Chelsea Rhodey

As soon as we got engaged, we knew that Tom would be our videographer. Tom was the videographer for my friend's wedding that I stood up in, as well as my husband's cousin's wedding. We knew both couples LOVED Tom, so there was no question. Tom is one of those people that makes you feel incredibly comfortable! It was not weird or awkward having a video camera around. In fact, I barely knew he was there! He captured every single important moment, as well as some great ones we didn't even know about! He is incredibly talented, and we could not have been happier about our video. We are so happy we decided to have Tom there there for our special day. There are things he was able to capture that photography can't. We also left it up to Tom to choose the music for our video. It was perfect! We just cannot say enough great things about Tom and Complete Video Solutions. He is so reasonably priced for the level of service you are getting. He came highly recommended to us, and we highly recommend him to you!

Tom and his crew at Complete Video are the best! There were two things I was 100% satisfied with at my wedding (besides my husband, lol) and that was the videographer and the cake! Tom was professional, friendly, and captured my vision without being intrusive. It was amazing. I would recommend them to anyone!

Tom the owner was amazing. He was patient and kind and got back promptly via email and phone calls. He gave a military discount which was amazing! He was very professional and his quality of work was amazing. My husband and I met prior to signing with him and he brought samples of his work for us to view and talk about... I signed him on the spot! He has many payment options and video options. We upgraded and got the unlimited package which was from 8am til 2am.. i mean he worked for his money! He was amazing. I cant say enough good things about Tom Santelli and his work. I would recommend him to anyone needing a videographer.

I can't express enough how amazing this company is. Throughout my entire wedding process I debated about whether or not to have a videographer. With about a week before the big day, my dad surprised me and hired Complete Video Solutions to videograph our wedding. After time had passed, I anxiously waited for the video. I was so excited to relive the experience and see things I had missed out on that day. When we received the video from Tom, we were so thrilled. It was everything and more than we expected. We have watched the video several times with friends and family. He did such a wonderful job and made it so personal. I am forever thankful that my dad made the decision to get a videographer. We have even decided to get the unedited version to see more footage!! Tom is the best!

During the planning process, we went back and forth on whether to hire a videographer or not. I searched online and read reviews and was very pleased with what Complete Video Solutions customers had to say. The trailers on the website were great as well. From that first conversation I could tell that not only did he know his craft very well, but he also had a passion for it. When we made the final decision to go with Complete Video Solutions we sat down with Tom and went over what we wanted and he took the time to get to know us as individuals. The day of the wedding we hardly even noticed the cameras! We recently picked up our video and it is AMAZING! We are so happy with it! From the music to the way he put it together is perfect and highlights all the events of our day. Tom has such a vision for his work and you will see that from day one! We are so thankful to have found Complete Video Solutions, I would definitely recommend to anyone! Even if you are on the fence, give Tom a call!

Tom was great to work with! Before the wedding he was very knowledgable in answering all our questions, he is laid back and easy to work with. and was always very easy to get in touch with (our contact was primarily over e-mail).Our wedding day faced a few challenges (lots of rain, outdoor ceremony, indoor/outdoor, last minute changes) but when we got our video back you would never have known it! We barely knew that Tom was there during our day but the video was amazing! He captured all of the details, most important moments and even parts we missed!! Our video is something we will treasure! Thanks, Tom!!

Tom was the videographer for our wedding. Not only was he wonderful and easy to work with, but the final product was nothing short of amazing. We even heard from a friend saw our video at a bridal show. My husband was very picky with the video, and Tom made everything perfect for us! We gave him creative control over the final video and needless to say we were not disappointed. Thanks again Tom!! Desiree and Rob Parks

My husband was against having a videographer for our wedding. Now he says that was the best thing we did for our wedding. Complete Video Solutions is amazing!! They are professional, courteous, and easy to contact. I refer them to everyone I know who is getting married. One of my bridesmaids even used them for her wedding. Our wedding video is absolutely beautiful!!

Our experience with Complete Video Solutions was spectacular. I was very skeptical of having someone follow me around the whole day, but am so thankful that my mom insisted on it. The day goes by so fast and you miss a lot. Tom was able to capture everything and I didn't even see him there most of the time. His editing was also amazing. My husband and I watch every year on our anniversary. You won't be sorry if you have CVS at your wedding. :)

I would definitely recommend Tom from Complete Video Solutions to any couple getting married. He was awesome to work with and genuinely just a nice person who loves what he does. I was on a budget for my wedding last October so I was planning just getting photography and no video. Then I went to the Palace Bridal show and met Tom, I filled out a form for a free video and to my surprise I won! I was so excited and when I met up with Tom to discuses the video he was very patient and offered great advise. Needless to say our wedding video came out beautiful- he captured every important detail from the church to the limo to the hall. I could not be happier with the video it brought back all the little details of that special night. Looking back I can't believe I was not going to invest in a video- it is so important! I will definitely be referring all my friends and family to Complete Video Solutions! Thank you Tom!!!!!

Tom did an absolutely fantastic job with our wedding video. I was so impressed with his professionalism. He was very organized, friendly and experienced. He spend a lot of time understanding exactly what we wanted in our video. On our wedding day, he was at my house on time and shot amazing video footage. He then went to the church and hour before the ceremony to discuss any restrictions with our priests as well as shoot our guests entering the church. During our cocktail hour, he did a ?well wishing? part which was absolutely fantastic. He captured all of the important parts of our reception from grand entrance and first dance to the wedding favors and rose petals.

Watching our video for the first time brought tears to our eyes. He did not miss a single important moment of our day even though we had a very large ceremony and reception. The best part was that the videography did not interfere with our day- we were not posing or taking special shots for the video. The music we choose was perfectly incorporated into our video and we got our video sooner than he promised. I really could not have asked for anything more in a videographer. I would highly recommend Complete Video Solutions to anyone!
