Derek and Aaron are absolutely wonderful! From start to finish we have had nothing but a marvelous experience with them. My husband and I travel most of the year and Derek was so helpful and accommodating with our schedule and atypical wedding plans. Before the wedding, Derek made sure he and Aaron were going to get everything we wanted from the videography while also guiding us in the right direction when we needed help (i.e. scheduling, first looks, etc).

Derek is truly a professional filmmaker and his cinematography is absolutely beautiful. When you're planning a wedding, you never think of things like lighting and sound (especially for reception videos) but these guys have really mastered it and it makes a HUGE difference. At the same time, their videos are so intimate and they really capture the feel of the whole day. We laughed and cried throughout our whole video. It was perfect. We couldn't have imagined a better film.

The team at Lavon is a group of really wonderful people and we can't recommend them enough. They are top-tier people who make quality films.

Also, get the bloopers. They are so worth it.

LaVon films traveled to Roanoke, Virginia to film my wedding day. Derek and I had become buds at a conference right before the wedding. He convinced me that the videography was something we should definitely do-- and he was RIGHT!

Derek did an absolutely amazing job on the day of the wedding. He found his way around Roanoke (with some instruction) and took video of downtown, the church, and the reception site pre-event.

When we received the video short as the teaser- we were overwhelmed, excited, and just blown away! Everyone in our bridal party, family, & friends have been so impressed with the video. It spoke true to our style and how meaningful the ceremony was and how much fun our reception was. My sister-in-law commented that it was the best wedding video she had ever seen because it wasn't your average, boring, video. It was fun and exciting, and worth a second, third, or tenth watch! My bridesmaids were brought to tears, then laughter of course! Thank you, thank you Derek & LaVon Films! I highly recommend them for your big day!

We used Lavon Films for our wedding last year for our two day Indian wedding. They did an amazing job! We watch our short clip and the trailer all the time and watched the full video twice. They find a way to capture the most important details and aspects and moments of the wedding and condense into a condensed and very watchable video. They are terrific.

Although their presence on our wedding day was very professional, it took over three weeks past the "due date" for us to get our wedding trailer and when questioned about it we heard a bunch of excuses. The trailer finally came and it was good. Then we got our short film and we just were not that impressed at all. We tried to purchase our raw footage because their were key elements that we requested missing from our video, and it took over three months for Derek to get back to us with a big fat "NO." I asked for an explanation over 4 months ago at this point, and have heard nothing back. Very frustrating, and unprofessional. We would just like to see the moments of our day that are missing from the video (my husbands face as I walk down the aisle, father/daughter and mother/son dance, more of our dance--there was barely any.) Just makes me sad to think we won't be able to see these moments over and over again.

Derek was a great choice for my wedding. He was super professional, and was open to new ideas throughout the wedding planning.

I received my trailer (s) which I wasn't too happy about, but he changed them around to my liking. So he is very flexible and i appreciate that he took time out to please a client.

I received my full video which was later than the date promised, but I didn't mind as long as it was done correctly. But it wasn't. He put 4 days worth of events, ON ONE CD! BUT he was willing to fix things again for us. I wrote him a list of things I did not like in the video, and what needed to be added. He was willing to comply. I understand my wedding was of a different culture, which is why I was hesitant to book him, because I wasnt sure if he would be able to capture every moment, but because I havent received the edited final version yet, I can't say how everything ends up.

Also, it has been almost 6 months since he has taken the note and said he will work on the editing. I understand he had a baby so time needed to be taken out for that as well. But every time I am in touch, almost two months he has been saying in every response that he is just waiting for a special DVD case to come in the mail, and he will add our dvd in that case and mail it to us. it doesnt take two months for a dvd case to be received. So I am upset because I have asked many times about the progress of our film, and the response is ALWAYS the same.

Other than that, I was very happy with Derek..Now only if I can get my final product, and it is worth viewing and sharing with loved ones, unlike the first version.

Derek was a great videographer. Professional, on time, and completely unobtrusive. Most of our guests and wedding party didn't realize we had a videographer, so he was able to capture truly candid moments. The quality of the video is fantastic, well edited, perfect music selections, and a joy to watch. We even stayed Facebook friends and Derek sent us a highlight version on our anniversary. Cannot recommend Lavon Films enough.

Let me just start by saying that Lavon Films was recommended to us by our Photographers who had worked with him. Derek with Lavon Films did not disappoint and we were absolutely blown away by his work! His videos were exactly what we were looking for. He sets such a cinematic-movie feel to them, you feel like royalty! Even the music he picks for the videos is good! We would definitely recommend him to anyone who is tired of the same-old, same-old boring wedding videos!

When we first started planning our wedding, a videographer wasn’t in the budget. After seeing Derek’s work, though, we changed our minds! He worked seamlessly with our photographers the whole day and we barely knew he was there! He captured the best moments of the day and the finished product is fantastic. We even have a cinematic trailer of our wedding video that we can share with friends via Facebook and email! A wedding video might be considered a splurge by many, but if you can work it into your budget, I highly recommend it. You won’t find better quality and value for your money than Lavon Films!

He has a great eye for what your peronality type is and what to film and how based on you. It was great that at the reception and ceremony i didn't even know that he was there. He was completley out of the way and it was amazing. He promised that he wouldn't be noticed and it was sure kept. I can't wait to see my DVD!!

We had a wonderful experience with Lavon Films. We did not plan on hiring a videographer for our wedding, but after talking to some people about it (and meeting Derek), we were sold. After seeing the video, I would recommend EVERYONE to hire a videographer (and particularly Lavon Films). Unfortunately, when we hired Lavon, Derek (the owner) was already booked on our wedding day. I was a little nervous about this, but the 2 filmers at our wedding were great. They blended in so well that nobody even realized that we were having the wedding taped! We received our video about 3 months after our wedding (which is exactly what Derek estimated) and absolutely LOVED IT! Through the video, we relived our wedding day and saw so many things that we missed on the actual day! Hiring Lavon Films was one of the best decisions we made in our wedding planning and we highly recommend them!

Lavon Films were awesome. He was always happy to be helpful during the planning phase as well as during our wedding. Unlike other cinematographers I have seen at other weddings, Lavon Films crew was always out of the way. From from of the footage we have seen, it doesn't seem they misses anything that happened over the three days they covered. In central PA, it is hard finding a cinematographer comfortable covering Indian/Hindu weddings - these are your guys!

Derek is a real pro and goes out of his way to make sure the bride and groom are comfortable and taken care of. He went and got my wife, the bride, a sandwich to eat and is very caring for his customers. He has state of the art equipment and a great eye for getting the best angles. He also has good audio equipment. I would recommend him to anyone.

Derek is a great videographer! He and our wedding photographer worked together on an Engagement Story that was shown during our reception. It was done so professionally by he and Matthew Tennison that it turned out like a TV production. The whole experience was great. He also filmed our wedding and reception, and within a few days he posted a 30-second Trailer of our day and the Engagement Story on his website that we could watch while we were on our honeymoon!
Plus I also need to mention that he is one of the nicest, unobtrusive guys you could ever have with a camera on you every minute of your wedding day! Lavon Films offers first-class videography service.
