Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
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.

Being a cinematography enthusiast, I was very particular on selecting a videographer to record one of the most important days of my life. I spoke and met with over a dozen well-respected and sought-after videographers. None of them had the same diverse and creative understanding as Tom. He was able to take what we had envisioned and transform it into well thought out plans and a beautifully executed video. His sincere excitement resonated with my husband and I, making the video shoot one of the most memorable moments of our wedding day. Tom Santilli has my genuine respect and recommendation.

I am so glad I decided to have videography services for my wedding day!!! At first I was not going to and thought I would be happy with just photography--- I am so glad that I went against that initial thought!!!

My Video is amazing!!! Thank you Complete Video Solutions!!! Tom and staff were great on the day of the wedding and afterwards with editing!!! The day goes by so fast and when I watched my video for the first time I was surprised how many details I had forgotten- what the room looked like at the reception hall, everyone having a great time on the dance floor, walking down the aisle, saying my vows, etc. This video helped remind me of the wonderful day!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank yoU!

This was sort of a last minute add on and it was the BEST BEST thing that I did for our wedding day!....You will learn that your day will be a blur but once you get the video and watch it over again you are able to relive it and remember so many great moments of the day. Tom was great was so personable but never got in the way and got tons of amazing moments. What was so awesome about Tom is that he really did care that I was happy with the finished product and had great customer service. If you are thinking about the videography with Complete Video Solutions DO IT...guarantee you won't regret it it is a great investment to remember all the details of your big day forever:)

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!
