When budgeting out our wedding, we didn't think we wanted a videographer... and then we came across Kiss the Bride's video reels, and we realized that being able to watch our wedding from such a beautiful POV was more important to us than, say, letterpress stationery.

We corresponded with Alywn, who was easy to work with and ridiculously sweet, and then on our big day, Nadia and Andy did the actual shooting (and later, the editing).

They were SO nice and were really good at not feeling like they were *there*. Fast forward a few weeks later, and we got our highlight reel. It was so fantastic and fun, and captured exactly the vibe we were going for... and we didn't even have to explain it to them.

As for the 1-hour video? I can barely write about it without tearing up. A wedding video is the best gift we could have given ourselves, and we're so thankful that Kiss the Bride was there to capture the day.

Don't mess around with any other videographer. Period. These guys were amazing. Alwyn and Leslie created something so beautfiul with our wedding teaser video that we will never forget. I work in the creative field and we actually have a Video Production team in-house at our company and these guys are cynics...but they made it a point to go out of their way to tell me how much they liked our video and that it was unlike the rest of the "cheesy" type of wedding videos out there.

Between the value, the ease of working with Alwyn/Leslie, how they handled everything on-site and, of course, the final product...I couldn't ask for anything else. And FWIW, they also made the editing process easy (which I was dreading, from past experience doing this in my career)...but their first version was so good, it made the subsequent rounds of edits seamless.

If you are hiring a videographer, don't go anywhere else.

My husband and I are so happy we chose Kiss the Brides to document our wedding day. They were professional, fun, courteous and created such a special memory we can not thank them enough. Throughout the whole day they were as discreet as possible and only asked for certain shots during appropriate times (during family photos, etc.). The guests also commented how they never really noticed them filming. Kiss the Brides Films are not only videographers, but more artists that notice the smallest details from a bee flying around a flower to the pearls on the bride's bracelet. While watching our highlight reel and finished video, we felt as though we were not only re-living every moment, but guests at our own wedding. The videographers listened to us, got to know us and created a beautiful piece of memory that is so customized with songs, decorations, etc. one could never mistake it for anyone else's. There is no comparison of the quality and the caliber of work that Kiss the Brides produces, we recommend them to any engaged couple. We wish them the best of luck and success!

This is a highly professional and extremely creative team. My husband and I were amazing. Not only did they show up early and stay late, they accommodated for my last-minute timing changes just a couple days before the wedding. Our crew was great -- guests loved them and we enjoyed filming with them.

Our short film and full-length film are both absolutely beautiful. Pure magic. I have never seen wedding videos like these before! They're just breathtaking. I've had people I barely know contact me via Facebook and my blog to gush about the beautiful video. I can't wait to watch more generations of family and friends enjoy this precious video in years to come.

Thank you!!!

If you're wondering if you should spring for videography or not, my advice is to go for it—and hire Kiss the Bride! Leslie and Alwyn did such a fabulous, amazing job of capturing the day, I can't imagine not having this gorgeously art directed living memento of our wedding day. They captured so many unforgettable moments, and did an excellent job of incorporating my song requests into the final version. Plus, they're incredibly sweet and professional, and a great presence to have around on your wedding day!

We cannot say enough kind words about our experience with Leslie and Alwyn. While hiring a videographer was the last part of our planning, since we weren't sure that we wanted one, Kiss the Bride Films turned out to be our best investment. Not only were Leslie and Alwyn hardly noticeable to us or to our guests (their equipment is awesome!) they made our wedding night a memory that will last a lifetime. Their work is incredible and they captured the tone of our special day perfectly both in our 5-minute highlight and in our feature video. They were helpful, understanding, accomodating and simply delievered more than we ever could have hoped for.

If I could have another wedding, they would be my #1 hire. I'd recommend them to anyone.

If your photographer is THE most important vendor, then your videographer has to be your second. Originally we did not think to have one and did not have the budget for one. So unlike most of our vendors we booked with them a little later in the game. I found them through our photographer when I asked for recommendations. So I checked them out on vimeo and was very impressed. I contacted Leslie and she gave me a call and was able to get us in. I also found a few videographers through the girls at LIweddings. They were all very affordable and great, but being as it was closer to the wedding they were all booked! (Get your vendors early ladies!)
Kiss the Bride Films was awesome! They were easy to work with throughout AND on the day of. The week of the wedding was so stressful with money and we ended up coming up short. So I spoke to them and they accommodated us and was able to downgrade us to raw footage only. Thank God, because we were going literally insane trying to find ways to finalize everything. I'm so glad we booked with them and can't wait to see all the footage. I'm sure there are a million moments I don't remember and it'll be great to see everything and be able to travel back into time to our wedding day through film.

We spent a lot of time researching vendors for our wedding, and were so happy when we found Kiss The Bride Films. Not only were they a pleasure to work with in the days leading up to the wedding, but they were absolutely amazing throughout our entire Wedding day. Alwyn & Andy are awesome and so talented…they were practically with us the whole day, but we barely even noticed them because they keep their distance while filming. They took our vision, and turned it into reality. When we received our trailer, we were floored at how well they captured the entire day, in just 6 minutes. They gave us a gift that we will have for the rest of our lives, and we can't thank them enough. Look no further, Kiss The Bride Films is where it's at!!

Such a pleasure working with Leslie and her team!! My husband and I couldn't be happier with the services provided. The two of them were absolutely phenomenal! They arrived to my house early and ensured that the day was thoroughly documented. Their professionalism and passion for videography was evident to all who encountered them. Our highlight video is STUNNING (http://vimeo.com/50349460). I cry each and every time I look at it. I received so much positive feedback on the highlight video and our full length. We received both in such a timely manner! Other friends who were just married were shocked that we already had ours back too. Would recommend to friends and family. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts Leslie for your hard work and talent! We love you!!

We couldn’t be more thrilled with our experience with Kiss the Bride Films and the documentaries they have produced from our wedding. Their amazing talent and professionalism is evident on the day you meet them right through to the finished product. They don’t stage anything and allow natural moments to happen. Their non-intrusive approach ensures that all moments are captured in an honest and genuine way. Their approach helps the character of the couple and their guests shine through in their films. They collaborated well with our photographer allowing both teams to capture all the amazing moments from our day. We were in awe when they sent us our documentary-style short film. The film transported us back to that day and that high we felt rushed right back into our hearts. It was as if they knew all of the perfect little unspoken memories that we had in our minds from that day and blended them together flawlessly on film. [And they seemed better than we remembered or dreamed that they were.] We are delighted with our film and after viewing countless others on their vimeo page we know there are many other couples who must feel the same way. They are true professionals with an artistic eye that yields romantic, thoughtful, unique, and inspired films. We are so smitten with our film and will watch it for years to come and remember our magnificent day!

She is super into wedding videography and has such a passion for it, which is great!

The finished product was received about 3 months later and it was fantastic. the highlight real is whimsical and romantic.

Choosing Kiss The Bride Films to capture the details of our wedding day was one of the best decisions we have made all year. Leslie Satterfield was a joy to work with and honestly, I have not seen any other wedding videos that come close to hers in terms of style and originality. She took our wedding day and turned it into a work of art.

If you LOVE cinematography and thought "I wonder if my wedding could be shot like that?" KISSTHEBRIDE films will make sure of that!! That day you just want someone to shoot, your not looking for a videographer thats gonna try to dictate what type of memories and moments your day should have. That day you just simply want a videographer that's going to naturally shoot by going with the flow of the day. There are some things you just can't predict and KISTHEBRIDE film will bring to light all those intricate aha moments that you probably missed during the day. I HATE wedding videos with cheesy music, bad audio and tacky jumpcuts and weird 80's scene effects. KISSTHEBRIDE films captures a clean, professional and sharp wedding video of your day that can be watched over and OVER! Worth every single dime! I'd refer KISSTHEBRIDE to anyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I hired Leslie for my two weddings (long story- don't judge, it was a cultural thing) and I can honestly say she is not only an amazing artist but is an amazing value. I've seen the work of other videographers with a similar style and did not feel confident about any of them because of their value. I thought I was compromising a huge chunk of change and no one was giving us what we wanted, a short clip, a long movie and the raw footage. I got everything...twice.

So many other videographers tried to deter me and said we would never watch the raw footage- and so what if I don't, its still my footage is it not? ANYHOW, after interviewing 3-4 beyond my budget, I came across Leslie who seemed 'up and coming' at the time through brooklynbride.com. I took a shot, traveled out to Williamsburg and just fell in love with her work, her and Natalie. My husband gave me this look that said 'I have no problem paying full price' which is something he rarely does but to be safe, we thought about it overnight and then booked her the next day.

We LOVE our video for our Western wedding. Leslie and the Metropolitan Building- which is where we had our 2nd wedding, are like two peas in a pod- which is probably why she openly promotes having weddings there. For our other wedding, it was more traditional, more for our parents and everything we don't really want to think about. She also managed to make that wedding look amazing when I found it intolerable. My parents were over the moon for it, on the other hand. Needless to say if she could make that look good- she could make anything look good.

Normally I would never question her judgement but I did have 1 minor qualm about one of my videos (it was a song choice) which really had nothing to do with Leslie and more our DJ and she was more than willing to accommodate me. I do, however, recommend to all brides to just let their videographer make their choices and trust them; Leslie actually opened my husband and I up to different music than we were accustomed to and loved that about it. If you can't trust your vendor, don't hire them.

Leslie is amazing and if you can hire Natalie too because she too is a sweetheart (unfortunately I was already pushing my budget so I missed out on Natalie...darn.)

So many other videographers tried to deter me and said we would never watch the raw footage- and so what if I don't, its still my footage is it not? ANYHOW, after interviewing 3-4 beyond my budget, I came across Leslie who seemed 'up and coming' at the time through brooklynbride.com. I took a shot, traveled out to Williamsburg and just fell in love with her work, her and Natalie. My husband gave me this look that said 'I have no problem paying full price' which is something he rarely does but to be safe, we thought about it overnight and then booked her the next day.

We LOVE our video for our Western wedding. Leslie and the Metropolitan Building- which is where we had our 2nd wedding, are like two peas in a pod- which is probably why she openly promotes having weddings there. For our other wedding, it was more traditional, more for our parents and everything we don't really want to think about. She also managed to make that wedding look amazing when I found it intolerable. My parents were over the moon for it, on the other hand. Needless to say if she could make that look good- she could make anything look good.

Normally I would never question her judgement but I did have 1 minor qualm about one of my videos (it was a song choice) which really had nothing to do with Leslie and more our DJ and she was more than willing to accommodate me. I do, however, recommend to all brides to just let their videographer make their choices and trust them; Leslie actually opened my husband and I up to different music than we were accustomed to and loved that about it. If you can't trust your vendor, don't hire them.

Leslie is amazing and if you can hire Natalie too because she too is a sweetheart (unfortunately I was already pushing my budget so I missed out on Natalie...darn.) Read less

Looking for a videographer was a task! We wanted a person who was a professional, used a cinematographic style to their shooting, and gave us a good value for our money. We met with a few videographers and through our experience; many of them are a little extreme with their charges. We met Leslie from Kiss the Bride Films and in all honesty, we were ready to book with her on the spot. We decided to take a few days to think about it, but ended up booking her pretty quickly. She was not only nice and personable, but very knowledgeable and meticulous. I loved that she was so laid back and easy going. From meeting with her, I could tell that she was relaxed, yet very energetic and passionate with her work. We just watched our video and it had us smiling from the moment it started until the end.

I have to say that we were very impressed with the turn around time of the final product. Leslie is great!

In my opinion, having a videographer is just as important as a photographer. I saw many videos which were typical; not creative and if that wasn’t the case then they were just way over-priced. Kiss The Bride Films stood out to me on many levels and after talking it over with my fiance, we decided to hire them.
It turned out to be one of the best decisions that we made on our wedding day. Ray and Lina arrived on time with a smile and full of energy. Everything went according to schedule and they did an amazing and I mean an AMAZING job! They were extremely professional and easy to work with. We felt comfortable and at ease around them. My wedding party was surprised by how unobtrusive they were throughout the whole event. I can not voice how much my husband and I enjoyed working with Kiss The Bride. I highly recommend them and would not hesitate to hire them again for other special occasions

Working with the Kiss the Bride Films was Fantastic! Andy filmed us on the day of our wedding and he was amazing to work with. I felt completely at ease and he just blended into the background after a while. We haven't gotten our videos yet, but we just received the video highlight and I am completely delighted! Andy is a genius! He listened to everything I asked for and then made it better. I am looking forward to getting our videos, I know I will not be disappointed. Best. Decision. Ever. Thank You!

My husband and I were speechless when we first saw our wedding video. The footage was so beautifully captured and we hardly noticed that Leslie was even there! We shared some of our video on Facebook and receieved an incredible response. Leslie's style is unique and special and you will not receive a better product for the money. You would be missing out if you didn't look at Kiss the Bride Films.

Kiss the Bride was the PERFECT choice for my wedding videography. I am used to seeing wedding films that were very "cookie cutter" but Leslie at Kiss the Bride Films was completely different! From the very beginning, she was very responsive to all my questions and concerns. This was huge as I was concerned that my video would be cheesy/ ordinary. The finished product was more than what my husband and I could have ever expected. She took the best parts of the wedding and put it together in the most unique way for our highlight reel. Please check out her work on her blog-- just a small taste of the greatness to expect! Leslie created something very special for us and many years from now, she will have helped us remember exactly how we would wanted to remember our big day.

Leslie and her company is awesome! From the very beginning we knew we were in good hands and she made it very easy for us to trust her -- the finished product is again-- PERFECT!

THANK YOU LESLIE!

Simply amazing.

Get the 2nd photographer. Ask for the 8mm package as well.

Leslie and her team have an eye for catching all the important moments against the most amazing backgrounds. The videos we got were like short films. They felt like a dream. If you look at their highlight reels on Vimeo, you will know what I mean. The look, the music, the editing...all A+.

The team is very professional and worked super well with our photographer.

We will always remember the highs of that day because of our video. Crazy good!

Although I read reviews, I never take the time to write them, but for Kiss the Bride, I will. If you are even considering using them as your wedding videographer, look no further and just book now! Seriously, stop reading and book!

Well in case you are reading, I will explain why: While I had the chance to meet and communicate with Leslie who is a sweetheart, we had Ray and Natalia for our wedding day and they were the best... so unobtrusive and laid back while still exuding confidence and know-how to make you feel like "hey, these guys know what they are doing and I can't wait to see the final product." We've only received our highlight and it blew us away, as well as everyone (and I mean EVERYONE) that we forwarded it to. All our friends and family say it's the best videography they've ever seen.

Their work is truly original, artistic and thoughtful. From the flow of images (captured from unique angles with perfect timing) to choice in music their talent is really unmatched in my opinion. If you don't want something cheesy and want a cool mini movie instead, Kiss the Bride is for you. They captured our day like no other - and like photos can't - and it was one of the best wedding-related decisions we made. - Yalda, New York City

Kiss the Bride Films did a fantastic job on the videography for my wedding in Brooklyn in May 2013. We booked a package that included a short highlight video and a longer feature film, and they really listened to us and included exactly what we asked for in both films. We went through a few different rounds of editing, and they were very flexible in making the changes we requested. The only criticism is that the film took a while to make - we didn't receive the first draft of the highlight video until about 2 months after the wedding - but the timing was in line with what we agreed to in our contract. The final product was beautiful - an amazing tribute to the day that I've watched over and over again. Kiss the Bride do not just make cookie cutter wedding films - they are truly artists.

Originally I didn't want to hire a Videographer for our wedding day, however as my husband is in the industry he would not light up about capturing our wedding on video. I was not convinced about having hired a videographer until I met and worked Leslie on our wedding day. She was extremely professional, responsive and easy to work with. I would highly recommended her and definitely hire her again in the future (we are planning a second wedding). The only thing that bothered me (and it isn't that big of a deal except that I'm an extremely ridged person) is that she only meets in Williamsburg, Brooklyn and Union Square because she is extremely busy. We only wanted the raw footage (which we received asap)—which was amazing; I can’t wait to see the final product.
Thanks Leslie!

Initially, my husband and I weren't planning on hiring a videographer for our wedding. Since my husband is a photographer, we had decided early on that our wedding photography would be a top priority in terms of quality and budget. Aside from that, there is definitely a bit of a negative connotation when it comes to wedding videos - soft lighting and cheesy music is not how I wanted my wedding remembered. As for my husband, in his professional experience he felt strongly that video operators just got in the way of still photographers. So why would we spend so much money on quality photographers just to have their job potentially botched by an incompetent videographer?

But my mom was insistent on hiring one, arguing that she wanted every moment of the day captured both visually *and* auditorily so that we could watch and relive it for years to come. Video could document the day in a way that photos couldn't. She had a point. She also had the pocketbook. And while my husband still felt strongly against having one, I wondered if not hiring one would be something we'd later regret. Besides, some battles are just not worth fighting (a lesson to be learned for all soon-to-be-newlyweds).

So I scoured the web looking for suitable and reasonably priced videographers. Little did I know that there's a whole new subgenre of wedding videography known as wedding "cinematography". These wedding cinematographers were also not fans of the stereotypical wedding video - they wanted to capture your wedding day artistically and unobtrusively (wedding videojournalism, if you will). No huge honking video cameras in my face, but instead a compact DSLR? No garish lighting and unidentifiable muzak? And they can make any wedding couple look like the stars of their very own awesomely sweet music video? Bingo!

With only a couple months left to go before our wedding, and a quickly dwindling budget, I knew our choices would be limited. But luckily I found Leslie Satterfield of Kiss the Bride Films. She sent me her pricing information, which detailed a small variety of packages starting at $1900 for 6 hours and going up to $3200 for 12 hours and two cinematographers. And all packages include 3 DVDs containing your documentary reel (anywhere from 45-90 mins, depending on your package) and 3-5 minute highlight reel (aforementioned "awesomely sweet music video" with your song choice), and you can request to have all the raw footage, as long as you provide a hard drive. Better yet, we were able to negotiate a lower price and reasonable overtime fee.

The day of the wedding, she was on time and ready to go. She basically followed the lead of our two wedding photographers, which is exactly what we wanted. Most of the time, I forgot she was even there, which meant I didn't have to feel self-conscious about having my video shot. And since our wedding photographers couldn't be everywhere all at once, she got to film things that even we missed (and the day goes by so quickly that you feel like you miss a lot!). We were pleased with her wedding day performance - she was nice, professional and unobstrusive.

In two and a half months' time, she sent us our highlight reel, which we absolutely loved. It was so sweet and captured lots of great little moments in only four short minutes. I couldn't wait to share it with all my friends and family, who also raved about it. She ended up using the song we chose for our cake cutting ceremony, but when I requested an alternate version with another song, she gladly and promptly put it together. Within three months, we had our complete wedding dvds in our mailbox. We were really impressed with her speed and professionalism. Throughout our three months of doing business with her, she was always easy to communicate with and prompt in responding to emails.

Now comes my not-so-dirty little secret. After a month of having the video in my possession, I still have not watched it. (My mom has, of course - she watched it the first night and loved it!) But I still have it pretty clearly in my head how the whole day unfolded...I have my rose-colored memories, if you will. And watching the video might change how I remember the day. So for now, I'm going to hold onto the memories of that day exactly as I remember it...and when I want to watch it and relive it from an outsider's perspective, I know I'll have an awesomely sweet video waiting for me.
