What formats can the final video be in?
Blu-Ray, DVD
Do you have liability insurance?
Yes
Do you have lighting equipment to accommodate a more dimly-lit event?
Nope. We use natural lighting whenever possible. Whenever we film in a dimly lit venue, we use our wide aperture lenses.
How many videographers do you work with?
I typically shoot with one other videographer. My wife, Becky.
Does the client get to meet the videographers before the event?
Yes! I want to meet everyone that's even considering booking with us. It gives us both a chance to familiarize ourselves with each other before the big day.
Do you guarantee your presence at the actual event?
Yes.
Do you book yourself for more than one event in a day? Weekend?
No. I only shoot one wedding a day, but it's not uncommon for us to film more than one wedding a weekend.
What kind of equipment do you typically bring with you on the day-of?
We shoot with DSLR cameras, which are the same cameras your photographer will be using. We also bring along sliders, monopods, tripods, and a jib.
Do you bring backup equipment to the event in case of malfunction?
Yes. We shoot most events with three cameras, but we have a total of five cameras just in case.
What is your policy on taking breaks? If you require a meal break, do you require that the client provide your meal?
We require that all clients provide us with a meal at the reception. We don't have time to eat at all during the wedding day, so the reception is the only time we have to refuel.
Do you give access to your raw footage?
Yes.
Do you reserve the right to use the video in the future for deals, contents, etc.?
Yes.
How long does it take for the client to get the final video?
6 months or less.
Do you require a minimum number of hours to book?
No, I'm pretty flexible, so If you have something in mind that isn't listed on my website, just ask!

First and foremost, it speaks loudly when people who attended your wedding ask for Jon's number and referral based on the service and product he provided. However, I will also add some additional comments. Jon and his wife were great to work with, super friendly, prompt and professional. Because of his work with his highlight video and how pleased we were we ended up ordering edited versions of our reception and ceremony. He suprised us by getting the video done earlier then originally expected! I am so happy we hired Jon, I wish we had another event coming up so we could hire him again.

Photography and videography were two things I had no budget on for my wedding. I spent days researching videographers, without looking at prices, and there was no one that compared to Jon Carson. Once I allowed myself to look at cost I was excited to find that he was also one of the most affordable. Jon and his wife were so great to work with! He went above and beyond any expectations we had. He was by far my favorite vendor, so easy to work with, friendly, and flexible not to mention his work is unbelievable. He had all of our videos ready early and was always available to talk to or through email. I am honestly so grateful we found him. There were so many things I didnt remember about our crazy busy day and he captured all of it.

Jon Carson is an amazing videographer. It’s just that simple. For all of those who are wondering even if they should hire a videographer, go for it! I promise you will not regret it if you have an opportunity for Jon and Becky to capture your day. Pictures from your wedding are wonderful, but the day will be a blur afterwards, and there is nothing like having a video to throw you right back into all of those wonderful moments.
Jon did a perfect job of blending in with the background (a great thing if you don’t want a bright light in your face the whole day) and being able to capture all of the little details throughout the events. We didn’t interact with Jon and Becky a lot on the day of, but that meant we didn’t have to worry about what they were doing and could totally enjoy our day. They both were so laid-back and pleasant, even when faced with some tricky situations.
Now onto the video. Between my husband, mother, matron of honor, and myself, I think we watched our video at least 20 times in the first few weeks. It is just that good, and I can’t tell you how many of our friends and family have raved about it, and how many friends of friends who didn’t even attend the wedding have teared up watching it. Our video is better than I could have ever imagined one to be, and it gives a beautiful and real glimpse into the day for so many of those who could not attend. Jon poured his heart and soul into making our video, it is quite evident, and we will be forever grateful. Thank you both.
Jon’s 5-star reviews speak for themselves. But I’m adding another in case you’re not convinced yet that booking Jon and Becky will be one of the best investments you make in your wedding. You may have a beautiful wedding, but without an edited video to tell the story, you will soon forget all the feelings you had throughout the day that you’ll wish you could relive for years to come.

OMG!!! I just watched our highlight video!!! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I know what you're doing, ladies (and gentlemen!) you're reading these reviews to make sure he's the real deal. Let me tell you, I am so happy we went with Jon. We considered going with someone more expensive, but after we saw the work this guy does on weddings, we were sold. Don't know what else to say, I'm still shaking with excitement from having just seen our highlight video!


LOVE LOVE LOVE our videos.

My wife and I weren't sure that a Videographer would fit into our budget. After seeing some of Jon's work online, we couldn't imagine our wedding without it. Jon was amazingly accomodating and flexible with us. His "fly on the wall" approach to filming was admirable. We never felt like we had to be anyone but ourselves and most of the time really had to look for him in our surroundings. His wife was very sweet and his services were a highlight of our wedding memories. We'd highly recommend Jon Carson for your videography services.

Jon and his wife Becky were the videographers for our wedding, and hiring a videographer was a decision we can to after much thought and consideration to the budget. However, honestly I can say this "I would have blown my budget, just to have Jon film my wedding". The highlight video he gave us has far exceeded my expectations! His professionalism, his demeanor, and his overall "appearance" on our wedding day was well worth his services. We hardly noticed him, just as his website advertises. I honestly cannot recommend him enough. The comments I hear on our highlight video are all wonderful as well. Jon really does give you his all, and you really get exceptional quality for your value. Jon and Becky, I cannot thank you enough for the priceless gift you have given me. Thank you for many years to come!

Oh my goodness, talk about an amazing videographer! Jon and his crew were so professional and came in and started working right away! They made me, as the bride, feel very comfortable and Jon talked to me like we were old friends.

The quality of his footage was beyond expectation and so was the passion he put into his work. You can really tell he cares about what he does. He listened to everything we asked for and made the videos above and beyond what we expected. He adapted to our very out-of-the ordinary wedding style with ease! Truly a pleasure working with this man, I highly HIGHLY recommend him, you will be glad you went with Jon's company!!!

If you are looking for an amazing value in a wedding videographer, you should go with Jon. He worked with our budget and was professional and responsive every step of the way. My husband and I were so thrilled with the video we received right after our wedding, and our friends and family continue to be impressed with the highlight video he made for us.

Jon was also really wonderful to have with us on our wedding day. He seemed like a friend by the end of the day!

I was on the fence about getting a wedding video for our wedding, but when we found out that some important family members couldn't be there for our wedding I went forward looking for a videographer. Without a doubt, this was money well spent for our wedding and our lifelong memories!

After meeting with Becky and Jon the whole idea of putting a wedding together took off to another level. The guys there informed us of how important the role of the videographer really plays in not only planning but producing an awesome wedding. A professional is the most important piece to the whole wedding and reception.
Perfecto :-)

Jon and Becky did an exceptional job on our wedding video. It was everything we wanted and more. They are professional, reliable, creative and worth every penny.

We almost decided not to have a videographer because we were over budget. I can't express how thankful we are that we decided to do it. Everyone says that the wedding flies by and I didn't believe them. Man oh man did it fly by! I only remember bits and pieces of the entire day and was sad the next morning because I couldn't remember the things I really wanted to. I was anxious to watch the video just so I could relive the moments with my husband and see how beautiful and memorable everything truly was.

Another plus, Jon and his staff were invisible the entire time. We didn't even notice they were there, they fit right in. I would highly recommend them for any occasion!

Timeless. We got married last year and still watch our wedding video. Our highlight film is the first thing we show people when they ask about our wedding. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE our photos, but I like being able to hear Ryan’s voice as it trembled when he said his vows to me.

Jon and Becky showed up at the salon in the morning and seemed to fit right in with everyone. As for professionalism, I’d say it was very good. I mean we only spoke a few times before the wedding day and he was polite each time. I think he even called me “mam” at one point, which I don’t know how I feel about that – just sayin’

We got our videos earlier than he originally told us, so that was a bonus. I really can’t think of one negative thing. Basically they came in, did their job(very well, I might add), and delivered as promised.

When I was searching for videographers, I wasn't impressed with all the hype of the glitzy ball dj/videographer packages. They reminded me of action movies that were all special effects and no substance. Since I was planning to pull of a classically elegant wedding, I wanted a videographer that would capture the substance of the day in a timeless type of video (like all the classics). I was not disappointed. John and Becky brought an artistic touch to the final video all while capturing the memories of the day. They were a joy to work with and were highly professional.
