I spent an extraordinary long time looking for a wedding videographer. I had always dreamed of using someone similar to StillMotion, but reality set in that flying in someone from another country, no matter how beautiful their work and once in lifetime my event was, is not going to happen. I get motion sick very easily, so some videography studio styles of camera-work or editing just didn't work for me- I couldn't even watch their sample clips. I also exchanged long emails with many (I was an out of state bride) trying to explain my vision of what would make it watchable again and again for me. I was not interested in nostalgic film styles either- I wanted something as close to a short movie. I considered more then a dozen vendors in my final list. Once I found Wijaya though, everything closed very quickly because I felt almost immediately that he understands.

His camerawork is very smooth and cinematic- honestly I don't know how he manages carrying his equipment and following me during my day yet the finished product sometimes looks like he was using professional equipment like camera dollies or tracks. He has an eye for detail of small moments we had while also looking at the big picture of lighting, composition, and everything going on at the same time. His editing tells that story of both the details and the big picture and the emotion.

He was/is the vendor that I am pleased with the most. After watching all those clips from the website and his blog, I was still blown away and he exceeded expectations. he is incredibly reasonably priced for what he offers, and my family and I treasure how perfectly he captured one day better to make it seem even more perfect than our memories of it. Thank you and so recommended!

I cannot believe how our least researched, lowest priority vendor turned out to be one of THE best parts of our wedding! I booked Wijaya last minute for our Memorial Day weekend wedding. He didn't overcharge us, though he could have because we were so desperate...he realized I was stressed out, didn't bother me at all, took charge, and knew exactly where to go & when even though we never discussed ANY details!

I had spent countless hours researching and asking friends about their photographers...spent way over my budget on a particular "premier" photog...and was so disappointed (and still feeling depressed) on how dull & unimpressive our wedding pictures turned out. So, I was sooooo relieved to find that Wijaya from Dunamis had taken some wonderful, artistic footage from our wedding ceremony/cocktail hour/reception.

He edited the video so perfectly with our chosen songs and threw in a lot of very tasteful special effects just at the right moments. One of my favorite special effects was how he shot our outdoor garden wedding with a soaring effect, so that it felt like you were a bird watching the ceremony from the back, flying around the perimeter, and then over a tall blossoming tree. I still don't know how he did it with such a relatively small, non-obtrusive video cam!

We had 2 videographers. I understand why having 2 is so much better than 1 for filming. It really brings action and depth to your video. I was so thrilled to see, after the wedding, all the stuff that went on during the cocktail hour/reception.

You will be very impressed & elated with Wijaya's husband, extended family, and I all are. Overall, our wedding video was very artistic & sophisticated, with enough drama & passion. I could tell Wijaya spent a lot of time editing/refining each sequence. I'm extremely happy with our video; it really captured the feeling of our wedding and I'm looking forward to sharing them with our kids someday.
