Reaching Roots Studios is geared towards telling your story. Your wedding is as unique as your love, as unique as your laugh, and unique as you have chosen to make it. It's our job to tell that story without having to ask you a ton of questions. It's our job to be intuitive.

Beyond storytelling, attention to sound, color, and editing style, you can expect us to be polite, professional and fun.

We shoot in HD, edit in HD and deliver either SD or HD... it's up to you.

Most of our couples have spent a lot of time planning their event. Your video will preserve the memories of the culmonation of that planning. As a recent bride put it, we'll capture "all of the major events, but also looks, gestures and moments that made us laugh and cry that we never expected to have captured."

Please let us know if there is anything in particular you would like to see. I can't show you something exactly like your wedding... that would null and void the opening sentence of this profile. I can however show you how different each video looks and feels, and how it matches the personality of the couple.

Nate was the videographer at my cousin's wedding the year before mine and the one vendor that I had in mind before I was even engaged! After seeing my cousin's recap and full video, I knew without a doubt that I really wanted to book Reaching Roots Studios for my own wedding. Luckily, he was free. Nate was so flexible throughout the entire process and even helped us customize a package just for us. My husband's family all live abroad and his parents could not make it to the wedding so Nate explored different additional video options with us - from live streaming the ceremony to including the raw video from the ceremony (the option we ended up going with). Even the "raw" footage was beautifully done and edited. Nate quickly got us our recap video too and it brought us to tears and laughter. We love it and have gotten so many compliments about it and can't wait to see the full video. Thank you Nate and Reaching Roots Studios!

Nate and his team at Reaching Roots Studios did an amazing job with our wedding video! They were professional, easy to work with, easy to communicate with, flexible, reliable, and have such an amazing eye, capturing some of the most amazing and memorable moments in our lives, in such a unique and creative way. We were so very pleased with the way our wedding video turned out, and are SO happy we chose Reaching Roots to capture such a special day. My husband and I both highly recommend Reaching Roots Studios for any one looking for a wedding videographer, or a videographer in general. We couldn't be happier with our choice. :)

Nate and his crew were great! They created an amazing short film for our enjoyment within a FEW DAYS of our wedding! The full length was perfect as well. We are definitely happy that we got a videographer and watch the movies they created more often than we look at the many pictures taken. Nate was really able to capture our guests' reactions and caught many things that we missed! Our friends and family were also so impressed with his films! No longer are the days of struggling to watch your wedding video after the first view! I can say that I probably watch my short film at least once a week (and this is 6 months later!) and the full length every month of so! We would highly recommend Reaching Roots!

Nate Armstrong was the best videographer for us (as well as two of my siblings also used him). We all had very different weddings, I may add. We had a full on Chassidic/Jewish wedding in N.Y. & Nate was able to capture all of the memorable moments for us into a wonderful mini-clip as well as a full on movie. We are so thankful for his service and have to say he was a PLEASURE to work with. I recommend him to any one from all different backgrounds. He just was spectacular.

We chose Nate Armstrong to videograph my daughter's wedding at Battery Park on 6-16 because he did my son's wedding in Sept. Nate never disappoints and is incredible at his work. At first we were hesitant to use a videographer in the church because we thought it would be too intrusive. But Nate knows how to be right there without being seen. He is easy to work with not just for the wedding party but also with the photographer. Everything is done with class. The video has received rave reviews from our friends and family and has proven to be the best way to remember this most important event. Now our friends want to use him for their celebrations! Thank you so much Nate!

While planning our wedding, my (now) husband and I researched Wedding Wire and interviewed many videographers. We wanted someone who was reliable, professional, and whose work was unique and would really showcase our wedding day. We were very lucky to discover Nate Armstrong at Reaching Roots Studios. Nate always responded promptly to our questions and was professional and upbeat about our vision for our wedding video.

While preparing on the morning of our wedding, Nate worked with me while his partner, Steve, worked with my husband. Nate was wonderful at combining professionalism and humor, making everyone feel comfortable and at ease. Believe me, on your wedding day you want those qualities!! Nate was non-intrusive and we honestly forgot that we were even being videotaped, which provided truly wonderful candid moments. My husband felt that Steve did a great job capturing the fun and lighthearted banter amongst the groomsmen, as well as working seamlessly with Nate throughout the day.

Now, I’m not one to write reviews but after seeing our complete wedding video I felt compelled to write about Nate and his talent. Our wedding video is truly outstanding! The way Reaching Roots edited the video and set the day to music made our video so fun to watch that we and our parents have all watched it multiple times already. Each time, we are blown away by Nate’s creativity and talent. You will not be disappointed with Nate and Reaching Roots Studios!!

I can’t even begin to say enough amazing things about Nate. I knew I wanted him to be my videographer the first time I watched one of his samples and realized that the way he shot his videos made me care about complete strangers! The day of my wedding, he bent over backwards to get shots I wanted that were almost impossible – he never complained and did everything with a smile. It’s such a pleasure to be able to work with somebody whose presence is calming! When we got our video preview, we were ELATED! It came out so beautifully and everybody commented as to how it embodied our personalities. Nothing generic in the least! He was never intrusive nor did he ask us to do anything that didn’t feel like “us”. Everything was perfect, thank you Nate!

When making the decision on who to choose for videographers, we didn't know where to start or how we would make our decision. After seeing a clip of Nate's work online and speaking to him, our decision was made. Although we did not meet Nate (or his co-videographer) until the day of our wedding, we were not worried at all because Nate was able to answer all of our questions over the phone and through email and we felt he had a good understanding of what we wanted and didn't want on our video. We had 2 videographers (one with me, one with my husband) who were able to capture all of the memories. When I saw the clip of our wedding online,I was overjoyed! And I was so eager to see more! When I watched the completed DVD, I was blown away. It made me laugh, cry, and smile until my face hurt. The most important typical wedding moments were captured, as expected. But it was the unexpected moments that caught me off guard- little things we said or did, glances, smiles, dance moves, etc. The video showed almost all of our 190 or so guests. It was romantically done with a great muscial selection, artistic and creative arrangement, and with passion and professionalism. Reaching Roots is not the least expensive videographer you can find, but you pay for what you get. I am so grateful that we invested our money into our video because it is the closest way for us to relive our wedding again and again. It is the gift that really keeps giving. I can't say enough good things. I am so happy to have worked with Reaching Roots and one of my bridesmaids is using them in the fall. If you are looking to make a good decision and have no worries about your video, please chose Reaching Roots. You will thank me!

We love Nate at Reaching Roots! He's so talented! Before and after our wedding day he was incredibly responsive and helpful. On our wedding day, we barely even knew he was there! His equipment is completely unobtrusive, he's so fun and sweet, and we just had the greatest experience with him. I would give him 6 stars if I could.
