Why choose Kismet Video Productions (Amy Royer) to film the most important day of your life?


- This is not just a job to me; wedding videography is my passion! Each wedding is so special and unique; I consider it an honor to be able to witness every single one I attend.

- I'm friendly, personable, professional, reliable, and not just punctual - but always early, easy to work with, and a great listener.

- I have been fascinated with art ever since I was young. Aside from film, I enjoy photography, web design, music, theater, drawing, painting, dance, and more.

- I have over a decade of experience with filming and editing.

- This is my second year in a row that I have won a Wedding Wire Bride's Choice Award for videography. This means I am one of the top videographers in Chicago according to WeddingWire, Project Wedding, Brides.com, Martha Stewart Weddings, Best Chicago Weddings, Wedding Aces, Bridal Buds, GayWeddings.com, and Weddingbee.

- I use top-of-the-line professional equipment and award-winning editing software.

- My vision and creative style are very modern. I will never use any cheesy effects or make your video look like it was made over ten years ago. I'm also constantly learning new things and keeping up with what's in.

- My prices are modest and competitive. I do not feel the need to over charge just because I can.

- I'm an energetic person, which allows me to be on top of every special moment when it happens. And I won't get tired of being on my feet all day and need to sit down.

- I work extremely well with other vendors, especially photographers and DJs. I'm respectful and even offer assistance if I feel it's needed. Anything to help the Bride & Groom's wedding day go as smoothly as possible.

- Because I am the one who films (and edits) your wedding day, I will meet with you, maybe over some coffee, and discuss everything you are looking for in a wedding video, while also getting a feeling of you and your fiance's personalities. Many businesses that hire other videographers to work for them, unfortunately, don't do the same.

- Your complete satisfaction is my number one goal! I will work my hardest to make sure that you LOVE your wedding video and want to tell all of your friends and family about Kismet Video Productions! Read less

Amy did an amazing job of capturing our wedding day. She was very professional and had several video options available to fit any budget. I have already recommended Kismet video productions to a friend who is getting married later this year. Amy wanted to make sure that she knew exactly what my husband and I liked and wanted included on the video. In general the quality of the video and the quick turnaround were great.

Amy did an on-line promotional videotape for my new company. Amy showed up on time, was prompt and efficient in set up. We did several walk throughs before the live taping. She ensured we had a good taping by running through each segment three times in taping. We compared them and selected the best of each. She then took my still pictures and created an animated slide show with them, varying the animation to best show off each image. She also took the background music and over laid it, timed to each of the three segments to fit properly.

The feedback I have received from the 180+ artists who are involved in the company's first book was "She did an amazing job, top notch, a real professional feel and look, very dynamic." I would highly recommend her work and I will be using her talents again.

I met Amy at a bridal expo and hadn't even put any thought into having a videographer. After watching her videos online and comparing to other vendors I was thoroughly impressed with her work! Booking her as our videographer was the single best decision I made as a bride-to-be and our wedding video turned out absolutely amazing! Our entire family loves reliving the tears and laughs from our special day. I would HIGHLY recommend Amy to any couple. She was very easy to work with and most of our guests (our bridal party included!) said they didn't even realize we had a videographer there... She wasn't in anyone's faces but somehow still captured every important second of our wedding and reception!

I booked Amy almost a year before my wedding date. A few months later my husband to be lost his job and our budget went way down. I had to call Amy and cancel. Well as life goes we got back on our feet and I immediately called Amy to see if she was still available. She had to work 2 nights in a row but she did it for me. We were so thankful for her hard work and understanding. She was professional, personable, and passionate about putting together the best video for us. I highly recommend Kismet!

Kismet Video Production did a wonderful day capturing all the key moments of my wedding. I was very hesitant about whether I was going to have a videographer during my wedding, and I am very happy that I did! Amy did a fantastic job. I especially love all of the dance footage and interviews that she did during the reception. Also, the highlights video turned out perfect! Amy was very professional, responsive, and reasonably priced. She also finished my video very fast! I would recommend Kismet Video Productions to anyone.

Amy is one of a kind. I spent hours and days searching for the best videographer for my wedding. I wanted to have the same feeling I felt when I watched my parents wedding video. I found myself continuously watching Amy's demos on her website! I fell in love ! I made my now husband watch every single demo. There was absolutely no convincing needed. We just had to meet her!
Amy is wonderful. She has such energy and passion. She knew exactly what I wanted!!! She's professional and fun! She attended the rehearsal to make sure she knew her camera positions. She met everyone in our wedding and called them by their names;extremely personable.
The way she captured my wedding was truly incredible. I'm getting choked up just thinking of how much I love my wedding video!When I watch it I am so thankful I went with Amy! It's like I get to relive my wedding over and over! And guess what that feeling I would get when watching my parents video well this feeling is ten times greater!!
If you're looking to capture your wedding or special occasion Amy is your girl! Thank you Amy for everything ! I hope you're still doing this when my little girl gets married! ;)

Hire her now!! Amy was the BEST (and least expensive!) vendor in our wedding. We didn’t have much left in our budget but really wanted a videographer – luckily Amy’s rates are incredibly reasonable! We knew we were going to hire her before we even met with her, and the fact that she is lovely in person was a bonus. Before the wedding she was so responsive to emails and answered all the questions we had, and she even came to the rehearsal to make sure she’d be set up in the best spots. Amy also did an amazing job of getting footage without being intrusive at all.

When we received the proof of our video, my husband and I were both initially nervous to watch it. Not that we didn’t think Amy did a fantastic job, but the wedding was so perfect in our minds that we didn’t want to see anything that disproved that. No one wants to see themselves look stupid dancing! But when we watched it, we spent the next hour and a half with huge smiles on our faces. She did such an incredible job that our memory of the wedding actually got even better after watching the video!

We got the final copies just days after we approved the proof and were just in awe of how professionally the video was done! She was even able to add a few iphone video clips we took during the night as “bonus features.” When we got our photos back my husband said, “Thank goodness we got the video or I would be really disappointed right now!” Our pictures turned out great, but with them alone we wouldn’t remember the little bits and pieces that Amy captured which made our wedding day so memorable.

Amy was a joy to work with, and thanks to her we have a fantastic video of our wedding. A lot of couples don’t think they need a videographer, but so much happens during the day and pictures just aren’t enough. If you’re on a budget, cut something out so you can hire her because you will regret not having this day documented! Thank you SO much Amy! You blew us away and we couldn’t be more grateful!!!

Without a doubt, Kismet Video Productions (Amy Royer) is the definition of professional. She consistently demonstrated a strong work ethic and remained committed and dedicated the entire time! Her positive attitude and enthusiasm make the whole experience a lot of fun!!

Words truly cannot express how happy I am with my decision to hire Amy Royer as the videographer for our wedding! We were not going to have a videographer at all because we thought it would be too expensive. However, Amy completely proved us wrong! She genuinely cares about others and wants brides and grooms to be able to have something to show their friends, family and possibly future children later in life! Another plus about hiring Amy is that she is very, very flexible! In fact, we hired her about two weeks before our wedding and she was able and willing to help us even at the last minute, smiling the entire time! Her value is UNBEATABLE!!!

Not only are her services EXTREMELY affordable, but the quality is AMAZING!!! The video of our wedding, one of the most important days in our lives, truly exceeded all of my expectations!!! Even more notably, Amy is the most polite, professional and responsive person I have ever had the pleasure of working with!! Amy wanted everything to be perfect for our special day! She came to the rehearsal early; she was actually the first one there! Then, she stayed late to ensure that she knew exactly where to stand during the ceremony in order to get the best angles and capture every moment! She takes valuable time out of her day to make sure that everything is exactly how the bride and groom want it to be!! Amy is very responsive!! She asked the right questions and she accommodated all of our reasonable requests! Amy made this a stress-free experience for us!!

Amy is really on top of her game! To make sure that we could hear everything clearly, she placed a microphone on the groom. Then, just in case she missed anything, she used a back-up camera! However, she didn't end up needing it because she missed NOTHING! We received the DVDs only one month after our wedding!!! It was really fast!!

As you can tell, I have had a WONDERFUL experience working with Amy Royer of Kismet Video Productions! I would highly recommend Amy to anyone who is looking for videography services! You will not be disappointed!!!!

She takes valuable time out of her day to make sure that everything is exactly how the bride and groom want it to be!! Amy is very responsive!! She asked the right questions and she accommodated all of our reasonable requests! Amy made this a stress-free experience for us!!

Amy is really on top of her game! To make sure that we could hear everything clearly, she placed a microphone on the groom. Then, just in case she missed anything, she used a back-up camera! However, she didn't end up needing it because she missed NOTHING! We received the DVDs only one month after our wedding!!! It was really fast!!

As you can tell, I have had a WONDERFUL experience working with Amy Royer of Kismet Video Productions! I would highly recommend Amy to anyone who is looking for videography services! You will not be disappointed!!!! Read less

Amy was a great videographer and she produced a high quality video. We went with the basic package with a few add ons and we couldn't be happier. The video is crystal clear with wonderful sound quality. We wanted the whole day captured and she didn't miss a beat. She somehow caught the whole day with us hardly noticing she was there.

After calling at least 15 videographers I had to go with Kismet. Not only were they the most reasonably priced for their services but they were also very responsive and flexible to our needs. Our class was the first group that they had worked on for a graduation/pinning ceremony instead of a wedding. Kismet did such a beautiful job with the videography. They provided this service for our Nursing Class Pinning Ceremony on May 12, 2012. Amy, the videographer was very easy to get along with. She came to both rehearsal and the pinning ceremony on time and was very professional on handling all transactions. Kismet makes sure your opinions are heard. They really involve the client in preparing the final product such as choosing the DVD covers and all other details of the video itself. The video was very clear and of high quality. I was very happy with the end result and so did the rest of my class. It will be something our class will treasure and enjoy to view over and over in the future.
So, whether you need someone for a wedding, graduation, or any event, I recommend that Kismet wiill sure give you what you expect, a beautiful video with great quality that your wallet can afford.

Thank you!

Amy was fantastic in providing professional as well as quality videography for our wedding day. My husband and I were left speechless as we watched our DVD made by Amy. She captured everything we wanted and more of our special day...our wedding.

I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to have an event (wedding, anniversary, etc.) recorded. What they would receive from Amy would truly be memorable. :)

I could not have found a better videographer in Amy Royer. Her work is outstanding and ranks in the top videographers in the Chicagoland area. She offers many packages and her prices are well below what one would expect for the exceptional quality. She had truly wonderful ideas for our reception and her vision was perfect for what we were looking for. She listened to everything we wanted and made sure her work was exactly what we envisioned. Her efforts to ensure we were satisfied with the final product were top of the line. Amy is a very caring person and she helped us feel like we were one of her friends and that our reception was just as important as if it were her own.

Amy was also a tremendous help at the reception. She quietly stood by and made sure she got all the shots we discussed but amazingly assisted with directing the timeline of events from the beginning through the end of the night. She somehow knew when something or someone was needed and made sure the night went according to our plan.

I really don’t know what I would have done without Amy. Her caring demeanor, bubbly personality and her passion for making sure our wedding video was everything we hoped it would be went above and beyond what anyone would expect. I personally cannot thank her enough for making our day one we will always cherish with the memories she made come to life in her wedding video and photo montages.

Amy was an AMAZING videographer!!! I couldn't of found a better person to record my wedding! When i was planning my wedding I looked everywhere for videographers and they were all SO high in price,then I came across kismet video productions!! I went on the web site looked at the prices and it was unbelieveable I had to call and speak with Amy herself!!! They had SO much to offer for cheap!! Then you begin to think why are they so cheap and others are ridiculously expensive maybe the work is different?!? So Amy sent me some demos of other weddings she has done and it was AMAZING! I hired her right then!! She took so much time on meeting with me plenty of times before my actual wedding that the day of the wedding I felt like she was just one of my friends!!! Most people you don't know you feel uncomfortable in front of especially filming, not Amy she is fun and is so outgoing!! Kismet Video Productions definitly deserved a 5 star rating! I would recommend them for anything!

Amy did a great job filming a private party for our family. My mother was celebrating her 70th birthday and we had family from all over the state in town for the event.

Amy caught everything and did it very inconspicuously. In addition, she set up extra interviews and shots to help make the final video so much better.

The end product was truly excellent, combining everything from the night and making it something that my mom calls "her second wedding".

My mom constantly watches the DVD, which was delivered to us very quickly, and it will be something that we have in our family for a long time.

No one should hesitate to hire Kismet for their event, big or small.

Amy was our videographer this past October for our wedding at Starved Rock. She did an amazing job. She has a wonderful personality so it is very easy to be yourself around her while she is shooting. Amy is professional, caring, prompt, and hardworking. She came early and stayed later than agreed to, for our wedding, which was amazing because she was truly able to capture the day in its entirety. Our video was finished earlier then expected and was done to perfection. It was better then we ever could have dreamed. Thanks to Amy we were able to re-live our wedding day and also see things that we missed or do not remember. I highly recommend Kismet Video Productions, Amy was truly exceptional. We will cherish this video forever, and would recommend her company and services to anyone.

Dear Amy,

Tammy and I absolutely love the job you've done capturing, editing, and completing the DVD of our wedding! Thank you for talking back and forth with us to make sure everything was perfect. You were very professional and we've already begun recommending you to friends! Everyone loves the way it all turned out. My mom started tearing up all over again! As we grow older, we know that we will not only have pictures to remind us of it, but we also have a professional quality video to watch over and over again, thanks to you. We can tell you truly love what you do. Once again, thank you so much!
