This review is about Justin's associate package.

Since we had limited budget but really like Justin's work, we had a long debate about whether to hire him or not. After we expressed our concerns, Justin suggested the alternatives of his associate packages. The sample of his associate's work is pretty good too, so we decided to hire his associate videographer with 1 camera package for our wedding.

I have no complains about Justin's services before and during the wedding. He is really responsive and friendly to our questions. His associate Edward is also very professional too. Everything is fine until I receive the DVD, marked as "demo reel", 6 months after the wedding.

We sat in front of the TV and couldn't wait to see the treasure moments. The image quality is good (we chose HD), and the videographer does a good job to catch the important moments. However it bothers me that during the weddingceremony, the view sometimes switch to the outside view of the church.
For example, while I repeated the vow and mention my husband's name, the image shows up as a palm tree. This happens so many times during the ceremony so that I sent him a friendly message and asked him if it is possible to remove those scenes. Justin explained this is due to 1 camera coverage. The reason why switching to the outside view of the church is to cover any camera movements made by the shooter. That's why he always recommended 2 cameras coverage. I hope he could have told me this beforehand.

Okay, fine, it's too late, I can take the motion, just don't want those inserted scenes. This is the part which upset me: he said "We are happy to make theadditional edits for you. The additional cost for this service is atthe discounted rate of $150/edit hour. I estimate that the editchanges will take between 1-2 hours." Com'on, we waited for 6 months for this, among the time we sent him email asked the progress, but never got a chance to express our opinion about the product. Also what he sent to us is marked as "demo reel", I thought we were able to make the change on the demo? He explained this is final product and mentioned "nearly all of our clients love their final cut", sounds as if I am a picky customer. After all, I am pretty upset but just have to take it and move on.

To be fair, Justin and his associates are professional videographers. I would recommend him to the ones who are willingly to spend a fortune on your wedding video because every little thing you ask for has a price at Justin Fone Productions.

Update on Mar 22: Justin contacted me about my complaints and apologized for the miscommunications we might have. Basically THE ASSOCIATE PACKAGE DOES NOT INCLUDE THE REVISED EDITTING FEE. However since he didn't make it clear to us, he did the complementary edit for us anyway. I just received the new version of DVD today and it is exactly the way we want. I really love it! Since Justin shows he cares about how I feel and made things right, I raise my review from 4 to 4.8.

Justin Fone is an amazing visual artist. I have had the opportunity to see him in action on several occasions, and the finished piece of work always blows me away. Any bride and groom seeking professional videography services should strongly consider Justin Fone. His services go above and beyond to cater to the client, and to create memories with style and creativity that I have only see him be able to do. I only recommend Justin Fone to my brides/grooms, because I only want the best for my clients. And he is the best. You should see for yourself.

We hired Justin Fone Productions as our wedding videographers and absolutely recommend them. We looked at all different price ranges and all different styles and JFP's was just the most natural fit for us. We did NOT want the in-your-face, "hey say a message on camera to the bride and groom!" microphone-thrust-in-your-face kind. Like, absolutely not. Thank goodness JFP people are NOT like that, hence why we hired them. My fiance/husband was really worried about videographers being overly present but these guys are such pros, he totally forgot they were there! They just blended and did an incredible job capturing every special moment. We loved how personal our video turned out, especially with the music mapped on it.

Anyway, don't risk having a cheesy videographer capture your special day. You really pay for what you get in this industry! Justin was really easy to work with and totally a chill vendor (which is very refreshing when you're planning a wedding!)

Justin Fone is an exceptional videographer! Justin took a video of our wedding in August, 2009 and he exceeded our expectations. Justin was a pleasure to work with and we could not have been more pleased with the results of our video. In fact, we watch it on a regular basis and it continues to bring us joy again and again.

For our wedding we viewed the works of several other videographers and chose Justin Fone because of his eye for quality and documentary style of filming. Not to mention he's a got a great personality, is totally friendly, and is very responsive to email.

We just got our wedding DVD, which was packaged nicely in it's sleek black case and photo jacket, and watched with great anticipation. From the moment the credits rolled and the music played we were taken back to our very special day. The details from pre-ceremony to the last dance played out perfectly and were synchronized to some of our favorite songs.

We absolutely loved the Super 8 footage and how Justin weaved it in with the high-def coverage. (I would strongly recommend spending the extra money for 8mm coverage.) I could go on and on about how much we love our DVD and Justin's work, but instead I finish with this: All of the important details were captured, there was an artistic documentary feel, and we were able to re-live the highlights of our special day. This is exactly what we were hoping for. Thanks Justin!

BTW - If you need any convincing at all feel free to contact us, and we'll be happy to help, or even show you a glimpse of our DVD!

Justin Fone is the real deal. I would definitely recommend Justin to anyone in need of a professional, experienced, and fun videographer to do their wedding. We chose Justin to do our September '08 wedding because we wanted someone that was young, who we were able to relate to and vice versa, and who understood our vision and what we wanted in our wedding video. Justin is very skilled in the art of cinematography. He has that "eye" and he was able to blend the music we chose and the footage he shot to work. We are so proud of our wedding video and we show it to our family and friends when we all want to look back on our special day. We get many compliments on the video and we owe it all to Justin's hard work. Just leave the footage to Justin and he will work his magic. Very responsive and involved in the whole planning process. He's not cheap but you definitely get what you pay for. Highly recommend to document your special day.
