High Definition Video LLC aka HiDefVI.com is a wedding and event videography company located in the US Virgin Islands. Based on St. Thomas we shoot many wedding films on St. John and Water Island. We approach wedding movies from a reciprocal perspective. Filming a wedding like it was our family for whom we are creating an invaluable record. Doing so in a creative manner that is more than special effects and color tricks. A well shot video will be viewed for generations each time bringing the viewer to a very special time and place. Learning classic camera techniques and minimizing anything that may date your wedding film is how we deliver what our clients call "spectacular, classy, amazing, incredible...". Destination weddings are an incredible win win situation for most. Combine a beautiful location with your loved ones in a calm outside the box enviroment, and affordability. What more could you want. If there are some who can't make the flight have a small party at home and show them the video. Destination weddings are really the way to go. We film your wedding movie with finesse. Please read our reviews here to hear it from happy clients.

Feel free to ask us any questions at all. We are very approachable and will gladly help with anything regarding your event.

Sincerely,

Mike & Connie Williams

INFO FOR VIDEOGRAPHY

What primary style do you identify with?
Cinematic, Documentary, Short Form, Storytelling
What do your packages include?
Ceremony, Edited Video, High Definition Video, Invitation DVD, Montage - Childhood / Dating, Montage - Music Dubbed Over, Montage - Wedding Highlights, Multiple Cameras, Multiple Videographers, Online Highlight Films, Pre-Ceremony, Reception, Rehearsal Dinner, Same Day Edit Video
What formats can the final video be in?
Blu-Ray, DVD
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Are you a commercial studio or a home-based business?
We are a home-based business since we like being around our children :)
What types, such as unedited footage or special effects, of videography do you offer?
We like to offer what the clients request. We have shot weddings over multliple days and locations and delivered just the unedited footage or tightly edited versions of the event. There are many alternatives to choose from. Multiple cameras are available for maximum production value.
Describe any special editing services you offer:
We use Final Cut Studio that provides many choices for special effects including black and white, color correction etc. Please inquire about the term special effects as it encompasses a broad range meaning. In short if you want special effects we can do it, but what that means it up to you :)
Do you have lighting equipment to accommodate a more dimly-lit event?
Yes. We currnetly own the most cutting edge FULL HD camera gear that is the leader in low light performance. We DO NOT need super bright lights to shoot your event. I like to think that we are vitually unnoticed during events.
How many videographers do you work with?
We work with all of the videographer that we would trust to shoot our own wedding. It really makes us feel bad when someone tells us their photographer/videographer did a bad job. These are truly once in a lifetime events. Don't forgo a good videographer, it's the real record of your event. They capture the sounds and motion of your day.
Does the client get to meet the videographers before the event?
This depends on wether the bride and/or groom come the the USVI for a consultation or site visit. I will gladly meet ahead of time if I have the time slot open.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
Yes if as long as they don't overlap time wise.
Do you have a replacement videographer in case you become unavailable on the event day?
Yes.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We bring cutting edge HD cameras ( NOT the big shoulder mount things), high quality wireless microphones ( small tie mics) and other discreet yet high quality equipment. I bring one bag on 4-6 hour events.
Do you bring backup equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
What is a break? The one time where I may put the camera down for 10 -15 min is on all events over 4 hours during dinner....( if is nothing happening...etc. ) set in stone breaks are non-existent.
Do you charge overtime?
NO. If you buy three hours then I shoot for three hours. Set up and break down are not inside your three hours. If you would like to buy more time the day or night of your event (which happens frequently) and I will gladly accommodate.
Do you give access to your raw footage?
There is a very reasonable raw footage rate dependig on how long I shoot on site since the more footage I gather the more studio time is involved with handing over the raw footage. We encourage couples to get the raw footage DATA in it's uncompressed form for the best archive possible. We include the project files as well in order for fast replication of the original edit if so desired as well as modification to include future family footage. The project files are Final Cut Pro project files.
Do you reserve the right to use the video in the future for deals, contents, etc.?
This depends. I always ask the couple if I decided to use their event as a demo or for contests etc. I respect the desires of my clients completely.
Is the client involved in the editing process? If so, how much input does the client have in editing?
This is a conundrum for any wedding videography studio. We try to remain as flexible as possible in input from brides but the packages we offer contain blocks of studio time proportionate to the on location time.
How long does it take for the client to get the final video?
We do have expedite services available. Most of the time it take about 6-8 weeks to deliver a final edit on DVD.

Chris did a beautiful job putting together our wedding film. He also sent a second dvd with the "raw footage" of our entire ceremony, our first dance, our dances with our parents, and the toast. My husband initially didn't think we should spend the money on a videographer but now we both agree - it was 100% worth it. Thank you, High Definition Video, for giving us a fantastic way for us to enjoy our wedding day memories for years to come!

Initially we weren't going to hire a videographer, partly financial and partly as I was hesitant, thinking we weren't as photogenic as I would have liked considering we'd be capturing us "forever"! Just two weeks before our wedding we came upon some unexpected money and suddenly we felt we just HAD to see if we could make it happen. Our wedding photographer recommended Mike and Connie and let me just say it was one of the BEST decisions we made throughout our entire wedding planning process! Seeing us after, I am SOOO glad we did it! THANKS MIKE & TEAM!

We're four days from our 1st anniversary and there isn't a weekend that goes by that I don't want to pull out our wedding video and relive those precious hours over and over again (compacted into about 90 amazing minutes), including Mike in the water with us capturing our sea turtle snorkel!!! Thankfully we also have a "highlights" video that I really CAN pull up in the blink of an eye to get a quick "dream island wedding fix" and save the longer edited video for those days when we've got more time.

Mike and his partner were great to work with, and Connie did a wonderful job editing the footage with music we selected. She also came up with a terrific song for our short video we didn't know but which is SO perfect. I wish I had known two things early on, though. One, that our guests would be asked to say something on camera so we could prepare them (I just hadn't thought about it!). And two, we were hoping to capture the performances on video by our guitarist and steel pan player because we knew we'd likely be too busy. Due to the soundtrack of our video (which we love) we still wouldn't be able to hear them play. We do have the raw video footage, it's just not in our edited version, so just make sure they know if it's a big deal to you.

All-in-all, we are so thankful we had the opportunity to work with them and think our finished videos are AMAZING!

High Definition Video did a remarkable job filming our wedding. Mike and Connie are truly professionals - they know how to get the shots and how to edit it into a spectacular production. We wanted to have something to show all of our family that couldn't make our destination wedding, and we were excited to find a videographer who could make it more exciting than a traditional wedding video. Mike and Connie were able to get us a video short in less than 2 weeks so we could show it at our reception home. It was phenomenal - our friends and family said it looked like a music video! We're so happy with the short and excited to see what our full DVD looks like.

UPDATE: We received our full DVD and it was amazing! The quality was just as good as the short but much longer. Worth every penny!

I had high expectations about what Mike and Connie could offer, but I have to say that the finished product was even better than expected!! Mike's a true professional and you can tell that he has a real passion for what he does--which makes him go the extra mile to capture each and every moment on your special day (I will always remember him climbing up a coconut tree with his bare feet just so that he could capture the perfect shot). We felt very lucky to have such a talented couple working with us in the Virgin Islands.

Mike and Connie were an absolute pleasure to work with! Mike has a very calm and laid back personality which is very soothing on a day when everything else seems to be stressful and everyone is pulling you in a million different directions. He was very flexible and professional during the entire event when working with other vendors and demanding family members. After the ceremony, he captured the sunset and us perfectly with a few different camera angles. They mailed out the Dvds very quickly, and were very accomodating with a request to change a song in the background. They then sent out the new Dvds very quickly as well.
Connie did an amazing job putting together the video. She was able to put it together like a storybook, capturing all of the meaningful moments in a great sequence. Their video is the perfect memento from a dream wedding, and we will always cherish it!

A wedding video is one of those items that brides often times debat about their "value" -- DO NOT let this happen to you! Mike and Connie from High Def Videos did such an amazing job capturing our special day. The little extra's they added at the beginning and end were a nice touch. (Since we came in on a cruise, they had our shipping leaving port that evening). Our expectations were far exceeded and I would definitely recommend using their services!

Almost a straight week of rain provided the backdrop to our eloping to St. Thomas. We had the perfect plan for our wedding ceremony but the weather was not going to allow it, so we had to move under cover. Mike did an amazing job providing ideas for how to make our rainy wedding day still look beautiful on video. It was a huge success! Mike helped put us at ease over the rainy day and helped keep the atmosphere fun with his sense of humor and easy-going personality.
Mike and Connie did an amazing job in the post-production process of our wedding video. I can't say enough about their professionalism and persistence even in getting the video to us ahead of schedule (with multiple power outages in their office due to all the storms they've had this summer!) so that we could share it with our families who couldn't be in St. Thomas with us. If there is even a doubt in your mind if spending the money on the video willl be worth it - lay those doubts to rest. The experience, the finished product and the memories they help to preserve are more than worth it!

We had a great experience with Mike and Connie. Mike captured amazing video, still shots, and time-lapse footage. He encouraged us to be ourselves and just went with our flow. Connie did an excellent job editing the footage and meshing it with music. Together they produced a video that showcased our personalities. The end product is something that we will cherish for years.

Sometimes the little things are the big things. Thank you for understanding that!

Mike was very personable and did fantastic work. I loved the panning video and high def shots of the bubbling champagne he captured for us. I was amazed at his ability to really capture the special moments and romantic looks between me and my husband. Watching the video really takes us both back to OUR day.

We wavered on whether to hire a videographer. I am so glad that we did, it was worth every penny. They went out of their way to finish the editing to have our video ready and mailed to us for our party back home. The video arranged 1 week early. Great Service. If you are having your wedding in the virgin islands you HAVE to use them.

Couldn't rate too much on quality of services etc. because I havn't gotten anything from them!!!!

So, our wedding was in February and we still haven't gotten our video. When attempting to contact them about this they were non-responsive by email and when I called I was TOLD TO SEND AN EMAIL!! I did as I was asked and days later had a response to my email that the video would be sent out the following day and the tracking number would be emailed to me as soon as it was available. A week and a half and another email later, I have heard absolutely nothing!!!!! Mike didn't even shoot the wedding and didn't return my phone call before the wedding. I was surprised when it was his wife who showed up and shot the wedding.

I am very surprised to have had this terrible of an experience given all of the wonderful things I read about Mike. Good luck!

High Definition Video responded with the following comments:

There is always one that individual will berate a product for arriving broken in the mail.

Please note this person didn't review our product, only the perceived lack of email response, and presuppositions about Connie's ability. We have not heard back since delivering the film, ahead of schedule, likely because it was awesome and Kathryn was embarrassed to say so.

I'd like to take this opportunity to reiterate, as we do at the end of every event, that it usually takes 6-8 weeks to receive the finished film.

We want to thank all of our happy couples their family and friends who have taken the time to write reviews about our wedding films!

Mike was simply amazing... he shot our wedding last Friday at Pretty Klip Point, located at Sapphire Beach on St. Thomas. It was such a joy to work with him. Mike was easy going and had a great sense of humor while being professional. He made my husband and I feel right at ease the moment we met him, like we had been good friends for years. I would highly recommend Mike and Connie at High Def Video! Words can not express how happy I am that we found them and how delighted I've been with the services they provided. Don't waste anymore time looking... High Def Video can not be beat!

Mike did a really wonderful job at my St. John wedding earlier this year. I met him for the first time minutes before walking down the aisle, and he was extremely friendly, easy to talk to and immediately put me at ease. He came early to catch pre-ceremonial footage and stayed late into the reception. More importantly, when the the final DVD arrived last week, the only word to describe how I felt when I watched the footage is elated! It was absolutely A-MAZING!!! The footage, the still shots, the progression, the background music and cinematography came together beautifully, and it was such a tasteful presentation of the entire event. It's possibly even more beautiful than the live event - totally unreal editing work!!! Such a perfect way to keep the memories. I feel like I just got married all over again every time I watch it (which I've done several times already). I could not have asked for a better final product. Thank you soooo much!

We had a party back home, yesterday. I emailed them last weekend to see if there was any chance we could get the video in time. They went out of their way to get the video finished (and they didn't skimp!) and shipped to us so we got it the day before our party. What service!

Last night I had the pleasure of watching the beautiful video that you did for them. Previously I had been disappointed that I was not able to attend such a amazing moment in Mandi's life, but after watching that video, I felt like I was there. You did such a wonderful job of catching every important moment. Thank you for making it possible for me to be there, even though I wasn't :)

And to top it all off he e-mailed us a few gorgeous pictures of the wedding that will make our grandchildren proud. :-) Absolutely worth every penny. :-) Thank you Mike!

My husband and I are so happy that we were able to work with such a professional, understanding and amazing videographer. You hear many stories of brides who felt their videographer was too pushy, not understanding and only did what they wanted. We never had to worry about this. We highly recommend this company to any couple looking to have their wedding captured on video:)

Can't believe I never wrote a review! Mike and his assistant made our rainy cloudy wedding look amazing! I was pretty heartbroken when our turquoise paradise turned gray and rainy, but Mike did a wonderful job capturing all of the little details and turned the rain into an artistic touch. They came well prepared and didn't shy away or miss any opportunities for shots despite the forecast. They also stayed later than I anticipated and captured great snippets of our family and friends giving us best wishes. The syncing of the songs we provided them was perfect! My only gripe if I had to have one, would be the part where the wedding officiant is saying our names -- the music cuts in over my name so it can't really be heard. Aside from that, I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone. 3 years later, the movie still blows me away and always will! Thank you for capturing our special day!

Mike at High Definition Video shot our April 2010 wedding video on the island of St. John - we couldn't be happier with the results! Not only was Mike extremely personable, professional, and easy to work, but his work is flawless! The footage and transitions of the video were seamless...it is actually hard to believe that a single videographer without any type of assistance was able to create such a smooth/fluid product. Very impressive! It should also be mentioned that 8 months before our wedding, during a site visit to the Virgin Islands, Mike took the time to meet with us, answer all of our questions, and show us a few samples of his work. We decided to hire him then, which turned out to be one of our best decisions. We would highly recommend High Definition Video to anyone getting married in the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Mike was prompt and very detailed with filming. He was extremely professional and fun and cooperative!!

When we received the video and watched it we were amazed!! The editing was unbelievable and brought tears to our eyes. It looked like a movie! The way they put everything together was priceless. They managed to get it all!
We have them to thank for capturing our special day and turning it into a treasure!

We have had it for a week and have watched it 5 times already!

Mike was very easy to talk to! With all the emails that I sent and the phone calls I made, he was still nice and great to talk to!

The day of the wedding, he showed up on time! He made it pretty fun - he was full of energy - and wanted to do more - but we were totally clonked out after our ceremony.

I asked last minute that he put some pictures of us as well as a new song - and he was okay with it!

He rushed us our DVD for our reception the following week just in time! Connie did a GREAT job on the editing - couldn't be happier. We've watched it I think a total of twenty times within the last four days!

I had a FANTASTIC experience working with Mike and Connie at HighDef!! Right out of the gate Mike was very responsive and communicative. He asked many questions and explained technique and worked with me to ensure that my wedding video came out exactly as I envisioned. And has it ever!!!!

Actually, I shouldn't even call it a "wedding video", because what Mike and Connie create is art! I've never seen another video (theres that word again!) like it. My husband and I LOVE the way HighDef captured and told the story of our wedding day.

On our wedding day, Mike was punctual, flexible, professional and fun. AND, he and our photographer (Kelly Greer Photography- also HIGHLY recommended) worked together like a well oiled machine!!; Which is kind of important if you want good shots! (Perhaps thats why she suggested that I hire him??!)

All I can say is WOW!!!! I had my wedding on April 24th, 2009 and was looking for a great videographer to capture the key moments of wedding. I was more interested in a sophisticated highlights reel than the entire wedding. If you are looking for professional quality, timeliness, and phenomenal editing - High Definition Video should be your #1 choice.

We sent them 6-7 of our favorite songs to set our videos to. The DVDs we received (which came in a nice case) exceeded our expectations. The disc opened showing options for both a highlight reel and the full wedding ceremony. The highlight reel was approx 4-5min long, and captured all the moments that I loved. The wedding reel was approx 27min long and not only showcased our ceremony, but it had the classic shots of us getting ready, mingling afterwards, and enjoying the resort.

It was great to showcase at our post-wedding reception, and we even uploaded to youtube to show to our friends who are spread across the world: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0RH6Mn7Hz8

All I can say is WOW!!!! I had my wedding on April 24th, 2009 and was looking for a great videographer to capture the key moments of wedding. I was more interested in a sophisticated highlights reel than the entire wedding. If you are looking for professional quality, timeliness, and phenomenal editing - High Definition Video should be your #1 choice.

We sent them 6-7 of our favorite songs to set our videos to. The DVDs we received (which came in a nice case) exceeded our expectations. The disc opened showing options for both a highlight reel and the full wedding ceremony. The highlight reel was approx 4-5min long, and captured all the moments that I loved. The wedding reel was approx 27min long and not only showcased our ceremony, but it had the classic shots of us getting ready, mingling afterwards, and enjoying the resort.

It was great to showcase at our post-wedding reception, and we even uploaded to youtube to show to our friends who are spread across the world: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G0RH6Mn7Hz8

We were EXTREMELY impressed with the video they did for us! First of all the creativity and professionalism are evident in every way! They also cued everything correctly for me and lined up my music while I walked down the isle! It was suburb! It made up for our horrible "so called" wedding coordinator making me miss my cue! They gave me back the one thing that went wrong at the ceremony! WE WERE THOROUGHLY IMPRESSED AND WILL BE FOREVER GRATEFUL!! The quality of the DVD was amazing! Not just because it's HI-DEF, but because of their truly creative talents! I had a large bandage on my cheek from an accident and they did everything they could to make sure to get my good side! They even kept reminding the photographer, from another company, of my issue and how to make me feel more comfortable! They put on a Five Star performance in every way! It's truly the best wedding video I have ever seen, and not just because I am partial! We just can't say enough about how impressed we are!!

My husband and I opted for a destination wedding in St. Thomas. I planned and organized for over a year for our big day. My coordinator found this company for me...I never once looked at their website...didn't even know what I was getting...I almost told my coordinator that I didn't want a videographer because our funds were tight. Thank GOD I didn't do away with the video. I just got it in the mail and it is amazing! High Definition Video KNOWS what they are doing...from the music, editing, and clear picture, to the DETAILS that were important to me (mind you, I never told them what was important to me...they just captured it...). To tell you the truth, I didn't even know they were there until they were ready to leave! They captured moments that I didn't even remember. I would recommend them to people who get married in the states, as well as people in the Virgin Islands! FLY THEM OUT TO YOUR WEDDING, where ever it may be...you WILL NOT REGRET IT! I sent the owners an email telling them that if I would have known they were this awesome, I would have had them record my entire reception too.

I saw Mike's work on the internet and called him less than 2 weeks before my wedding. He told me that he had a prior appointment at 6pm, but would do everything that he could to get as many shots in for our 3:30pm ceremony before going to his next appointment. He gave wonderful advice for the order of the reception so that we had the memories we wanted captured, such as having our first dance, father daughter dance and cake cutting at the very beginning of the reception. Everything turned out perfectly and Mike was able to shot everything that we wanted and make it to his next appointment with time to spare. He was very professional and didn't once make us feel rushed even though we knew (and he knew) that he had to be at the next appointment on time. That meant a great deal to us, and so we didn't mind at all when it was time for him to leave. And when we saw the final edit of our highlighted video we were extremely impressed. It brought tears to our eyes again. We would highly recommend Mike and Connie's High Definition Video to anyone hands down!

I found Hi Def Video online and after viewing their previous work, I knew I just had to have them record my wedding. The quality of the videos I viewed online done by Mike and Connie was breathtaking! Although the vendor I chose to coordinate my wedding already had a videography vendor that they work with, I told them that I had to have Hi Def Video record my wedding and my mind was made up!

Just as I suspected, Mike and Connie did an excellent job on my wedding video. I swear the editing that was done looked like we were watching a real life movie. I did not have the pleasure to meet Connie, but Mike was awesome! I married my honey Feb. 24, 2009 and my guest are still talking about how professional and down to earth Mike was...and I conquer. I knew he would be fun to work with just by communicating with him thru emails.

Thank you so much Mike and Connie for not only helping to make my day even more special, but for being genuine people who GET IT when it comes to giving people what they paid for and exceeding the expectations!!!

God Bless you both, and whenever my husband and I are back visiting St. Thomas, we will be sure to look you up!

Mike and Connie,

Thank you for the absolutely wonderful job you did putting together the video of our February 17 wedding at the Marriott.

The video is amazing and we could not be happier with the final product. We can't believe how quickly you were able to put everything together and were thrilled that we were able to leave with it. It was a very big hit at our reception a couple weeks later and we have received so many compliments on your work. You captured all of the wonderful moments of the day and we are thankful to have this special memento. We especially love what you did with the pictures in the photo montage, including pictures behind the pictures. What great attention to detail! You are truly talented!

We had decided not to have a videographer at our wedding. Less than a month before our New Years Eve wedding, I changed my mind. I had searched the internet and called several vendors in St. John and St. Thomas. I stumbled across a video from High Def VI and instantly fell in the love with the video. Luckily, Michael was available. We spoke numerous times on the phone prior to the wedding. He was always available to answer my questions and offer suggestions.

Michael arrived early on the day of our wedding to make sure he captured all the important moments between us and our families. He worked great with our photographer. On the day of our wedding, we gave Michael a DVD with pictures and a CD with all the music we would like included.

I really wanted the DVD for our reception which was less than two weeks later. Michael wanted to give us our DVD before we left the island. Two days later he hand-delivered the DVD’s to us. When my husband and I sat down to watch it, we were amazed. We could not believe what a wonderful job he did. We must have watched it 10 times in a row because we were so excited. He captured every important moment and then some. The music and photo montage make the video.

High Def VI did an incredible job on our wedding video. We highly recommend them for your island wedding. We couldn’t be happier with them. Check out our video on the website.

This was a destination wedding so the ability to coordiante was very limited from the beginning.Without direction from us, we left what they wanted to do to them. Best decision we could have ever made !! The professional attitude and demeanor during the wedding was of the highest standard and more importantly the creativity that was used to complete the final product was SPECTACULAR. We could not be more pleased but more importantly most thankfull for having High Definition Video create for us not only the memories/video of our wedding but their product is now considered by us and our familiy one of our most prized assets.

My husband (fiance' at the time) decided 2 weeks before our wedding that we wanted videography. We were a little skeptical if videography would be worth the money. My coordinator introduced me to the owner of High Definition Video. I spoke with the owner of the High Definition Video and put me at ease that everything would be fine and taken care of. And boy was it ever!! Our dvds arrived right before Christmas, perfect time to show our family. The quality and editing was nothing short of AMAZING!!!!! We highly recommend their services to all getting married in the USVI.

Mike and Connie were awesome! Mike was the first vendor to show up to our Big Day, and he was the last to leave. He went out of his way to get the right shots, even though our day did not exactly go as planned due to weather. The resulting video was perfect-- very professional and well edited, and contained the right moments in the right places. We were impressed by Mike's shots, and that says a lot as we are both professionals in the movie business (I'm a camera operator myself). That said, what Connie did to edit it all together and utilize our music was just perfect. Everyone we show the videos to loves them, as do we. Thanks High Definition Video VI!

Mike was so great! We totally recommend HiDef Video as a vendor. He came to video the girls getting ready and he was very warm and professional at the same time so everyone was totally comfortable having him around. Having a casual wedding was key for us and I think he did such a great job getting all the important stuff from start to finish. We had already gotten a photographer, or we probably would have used him for that as well. That aside, he NEVER got in the way of any of the still photographer's shots (important in this biz) and was able to really capture the feeling that we wanted for our video. The shots were great, and we love love love everything we got! Also, a nice option he gives you is getting all your raw footage too, sometimes it's nice seeing some behind the scenes stuff you might have missed. Mike also has top-notch equipment too, so aside from his talent, the quality of the video was amazing. His editing style is awesome as well and we gave him some free rein with choosing most of the music, which turned out perfect...probably because he is very communicative and is willing to work with whatever style you want. He was so affordable and flexible with us, we probably wouldn't have been able to afford such a great documentation of our special day if it wasn't for his willingness to work with us and make it all happen. We got plenty of copies so our families wouldn't have to fight over who got a video, which was a life saver. Take it from me ladies, it's hard enough planning a destination wedding, do yourself a favor and book this vendor, then all you have to worry about are the hundred other things you've got to do before your big day! Thanks a million HiDef!

High Definition Video is a rare find!!!! Michael Williams is the ultimate professional who captured the very heart and soul of our daughter's wedding in St Thomas and St. John, USVI. The beautiful video is a lasting reminder of the rich journey from prewedding preparations, to the Cathedral Liturgy, boat ride to Caneel Bay and Reception. Michael caught the emotions of the day, the touching looks, tender exchanges and total joy of the day! Our family and guests all received a copy of the dvd and were thrilled to have such a treasured memory. The Bride and Groom, too, were estatic and thrilled with the beautiful memory Michael created. We all feel blessed to have found him and to have benefited so richly from his enormous talent!!!
Thank you for the opportunity to comment on High Difinition's exquisite work!
