I found Tom on craigslist and booked him for my wedding. On my actual wedding Tom didn't do much and wasn't really seen. Both my mom and sister asked him if he is capturing certain moments because he was no where when they were happening. I wanted to give him the benefit of the doubt so i waited for my wedding video, when I got it I was terribly disappointed with the quality of work. He shot my whole ceremony from a balcony so all i have is an hour of the back of my guests heads. When I am walking down the isle with my father all you see is the back of us. The footage was also blurry and the sound was bad. He didn't put any of the important moments on the final edit and everything was shot in a close up mode. When I called him to talk about these things he acted very unprofessional towards me and didn't think there was anything to be resolved.

Metro Films responded with the following comments:

I am very clear with all of my clients about the services that I offer. Specifically with Ilona and Arek, I told them from the very beginning both in writing and in person my style of shooting and how I put together videos. I was very much involved in the whole day and captured everything that happened.

In terms of the ceremony, there was no space to shoot it from up front. The balcony offered the best vantage point to capture the entire thing.

I always tell my clients, that if they have a special request or any questions that they should ask or tell me before hand. Ilona and Arek did not do this.

Let me restate that I am very thorough and clear about the services that I offer both in writing and in person. Ilona and Arek have a legal contract that they signed that stipulates exactly the kind of video that they were to receive. Not only did I adhere to that agreement but I also gave them more, finishing the video way ahead of schedule, giving them extra copies, and even upgrading to HD without charging them.

If the couple had a special request, they should have let me know before hand. I am sorry that the video did not meet their expectations but I was very clear about what I would put together for them.

Tom did an amazing job on our wedding video. It was exactly what i wanted. He also added the highlight reel free of charge for us. I really couldnt ask for anything more.

Videography was one of our last minute decisions - we really didn't think we wanted it, but my family is from Hong Kong and a lot of them would not make it to the wedding, so we decided in the end it would be a good thing to have. Tom does non-cheesy videography at a very reasonable price. The final product was amazing -- it's a very good, no frills wedding video that captured all the key moments, and even some of the details-- which is exactly what we wanted. He worked with our budget, and gave us a really good deal. He was very pleasant to deal with, on time and responsive to emails, as well as non-intrusive at the wedding.
