When we made the decision to hire a videographer, I believed it was important to find a vendor that we could connect with in order to produce a video that would adequately capture the emotions of the day in a genuine way. Dan from Poetic Cinema absolutely delivered on this wish in every possible way. From our very first meeting with him, I felt a connection. Dan takes the time to understand the couple and what they want from the day. He is honest, humorous, and sincerely happy for the bride and groom. He will do whatever it takes to best capture the moment – even if it means lying in the tall grass with the bugs during our portrait photo shoot, as was the case on our big day. Another expert touch that made a difference for us was that he discreetly clipped a microphone to my husband’s tuxedo, which allowed him to clearly capture all of the dialogue from the ceremony without any distracting background noise. When we received our package from Dan, we could not have been more thrilled with the final product! His pride in his work shows through with how much effort he puts into making your special day unique to you. His editing choices made for an emotional, stunning, and (at times) humorous collection of videos that allows us to share and relive the best moments of the day with all of the accompanying emotion. Dan is a master at what he does, and I am so glad that we trusted him with capturing that incredible day for us.

I am mad at myself for just now getting to this, but Dan was absolutely wonderful on our wedding day!! He literally saved the day. Our friend who was originally filming our wedding had to cancel the week of our wedding day and Dan called me and canceled things he had planned to come film our entire day/night without any questions. I don't know how to thank him for doing that, but I wouldn't have one of the most amazing parts of our wedding, our video, if it weren't for him. Not only that, but the video itself is incredible. I've lost count as to how many times I've watched it, I just watched it again before writing this review! The music is exactly what we wanted, the moments he picked for the trailer and highlight are perfect, and I cry every time I watch. I would definitely recommend Dan to anyone getting married!! He is a genuinely nice person and does amazing work!!

Dan is fantastic to work with and his videos are absolutely beautiful! From the moment I hired him I knew I had made the right choice. He is friendly, professional, extremely helpful and accommodating...and I felt all of these things before I even saw his final product! When we got the video back my husband and I felt like we relived our wedding! I watch the videos all of the time, and the trailer is a great way to share the wedding with people who could not make it. His videos are professional, beautiful, and truly capture the spirit of the wedding! If you are considering a wedding videographer you should do it - and choose Poetic Cinema! It's my best piece of wedding advice that I give to all of my engaged friends.

Dan Shallenberger's work is excellent. He was easy to work with and answered questions promptly. The video package we received was unbelievable! He captured moments in a creative and interesting way. And best of all, except for when he arrived at my home I barely even noticed he was there. He brought a 2nd videographer with him and I honestly never even noticed him/her. Of all the money spent in preparing for and hosting a wedding, this was well worth it. A great value!

Dan is great to work with and I have no doubt that our wedding video will be fantastic!! He did a great job capturing all the big moments and small moments of the day without being in the way. I didn't even know he was there half the time. He is a class act and I would highly recommend him to capture the moments of anyone's special day!

The video turned out really nice; however, it took 6 months to get the video. Overall, I was happy. Great communication.

If you are ever waffling on whether or not to get a videographer for your wedding - STOP!! Do it. And make sure you hire Dan at Poetic Cinema. From the beginning, Dan was extremely involved and dedicated to capturing us, our day, and the emotions surrounding that. He was such an absolute pleasure to work with and his response time was unparalleled. The days leading up to the wedding we took about an hour to review everything and he really got what we were looking for out of a wedding video. The day of, he was amazing! Not a moment was missed and he recommended this AMAZING location for wedding pictures at an old train yard. Sounds weird, but it gave us this unique vibe that made for beautiful photographs that I never saw from anyone else.

Dan delivers a 2 1/2 minute preview once he starts editing the video...and wow. My friend summed it up better than I could have "It's like watching a movie - one that I know has a VERY happy ending!" I must have watched this teaser preview 50 times and it paled in comparison to the full feature film. First off, the package was delivered in a manner that made it look like a DVD you would buy of a regular movie. Our names were listed as the "stars" of the movie, "The Wedding" and he got our bridal party, parents, officiants, and ring bearer/flower girl included as well. The cover of the DVD was decked out with pictures from our photographers and it made for such a nice touch. To say I was blown away would be an understatement and disservice to Dan and his so apparent talent. We were immediately transported back to all of the feelings of the day - love and all consuming joy / happiness. My face just radiated joy reliving all of the moments that were such a blur to us. That is something that I will always be grateful to Dan for. We couldn't be more pleased with the way Dan captured our day - this is truly a work of art that we will enjoy (along with all the friends and family willing to watch!!) for the rest of our lives.

Make your videographer search an easy one...hire Dan and know that you will have your wedding day preserved with the utmost care, quality, and artistic flair.

Dan of Poetic Cinema is not only a terrific guy and wonderful to work with but he did an absolutely fantastic job on every level! We love the trailer, the feature film, and the overall documentary. Everything is beautifully shot. We truly feel Dan captured that special moment in our lives. One thing we were particularly struck by is how in the middle of the action Dan got and how we never noticed it. He was completely inconspicuous and it's remarkable. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you need a referral. Two big thumbs up!

I didn't think I had it in my budget to have a videographer. Then I saw a friend's video that Dan had done, and I had to have one!! Dan was quick to respond and so nice! On the day of the wedding, he was so "go with the flow" and remained in a positive mood all day! If you haven't checked out his work, do it! Make room in your budget for him because a few months after the wedding when you receive the video, you will be so happy that you did.

I just got my video back and OH MY GOSH! It is amazing! He is so creative and my video was better than I could have ever imagined! The feature film is reallly amazing. Everyone I show it to cries and we are so proud to show the video off! The way that he incorporates the speeches and our own voices into scenery and the exciting before-wedding events, is amazing. I feel like he did not miss anything for our big day! I really cant say enough about how wonderful he was! He is so professional and so creative! Really a pleasure to work with and always responds quickly to any e-mails or calls. My only regret is that I wish I would have asked him to come to our rehearsal dinner as well, he was more than willing to but I opted out. Now I kick myself because he did so great with all of the wedding events, I know he would have fit the rehearsal dinner in to make it magical as well.

I would and do recommend him to any and every bride...
