Steven and Susan are truly one of a kind. They were not only professional, wonderful to work with, took time to listen to what we wanted and made it happen (even if that meant Steven taking a group wedding photo atop a 15 foot ladder!) but they were also wonderful people with a passion and talent for making anyone feel beautiful. I only wished we had gotten them to do cinematography at our wedding as well.
They respond quickly, are very flexible with their schedule and were early to every session we had with them.
You will NOT be disappointed!

Hey Steven and Susan,
Mosey and I were up in Connecticut last weekend and picked up our copy of
the wedding video from Meghan. This morning we had the opportunity to
finish looking at all of it and I had to drop you a note to tell you how
pleased we were with the final product. So many memories came flooding back
and it was great fun reliving that wonderful day. We especially enjoyed the
"Memories" compilation at the end...the editing was superb and it certainly
delivered on the "memories".
Thanks for a wonderful record of Meg and Nick's great day...we will cherish
the memories even more so given this outstanding video.

Drop to Design did a great job. Steven and Susan are prompt, responsive to questions and ideas and dedicated to making the video a true representation of the bride and groom on their wedding day. We loved the interviews with family members and the first-dance, first-kiss moments. The summary at the end provides a tapestry of the day--set to music that's meaningful to the bride and groom-- that makes their work a piece of family history. It was so much fun to watch the video and relive the day. We considered this one of our best wedding investments.

Steven and his wife were fabulous! We decided to do a video last minute and it was the best decision. They were so on top of everything, met me for a walk through of the location, always responded quickly to my questions, and the final product was excellent. We had a very traditional Jewish wedding and they were able to capture every moment perfectly. We are so incredibly happy to have our special day on tape so we can always remember it.

We had so much fun with these guys! Originally I was looking for the absolute cheapest out there but after comparing Drop to Design with some others, the difference was just amazing. They are so SO much better than the others I looked at. For us the three most important things were the marriage, the photos and the video. Because when it's all said and done that's all you have left. You'll have each other and your memories of that day. Drop to Design and Steven did a perfect job of helping us preserve those memories. On top of that Steven is a super fun guy. He's funny and friendly and encouraging. Just great. We loved the whole experience with them.

We had so much fun with these guys! Originally I was looking for the absolute cheapest out there but after comparing Drop to Design with some others, the difference was just amazing. They are so SO much better than the others I looked at. For us the three most important things were the marriage, the photos and the video. Because when it's all said and done that's all you have left. You'll have each other and your memories of that day. Drop to Design and Steven did a perfect job of helping us preserve those memories. On top of that Steven is a super fun guy. He's funny and friendly and encouraging. Just great. We loved the whole experience with them. Read less
