This power couple have now become two of my favorite people! I can't imagine using anyone else for our wedding cinematography. From beginning to end we enjoyed working with them. They are fun, sweet and really thoughtful and kind. We talked through FaceTime a few times before the wedding day and felt that they really took the time to get to know us before the wedding. They blew us out of the water and delivered a perfect video in a very timely manner. Not to mention the beautiful packaging. Everything was well organized with them and they don't miss a thing. I never felt like I had to "micromanage" them as some brides feel they have to do, because they were beyond professional and on top of it each step of the way. I spent as just much on my photographer and our video is by far my favorite memorable is from that very special day.

The talents behind The Adventures Of, Kiera & Josh were the most amazing filmmakers to work with on our (very unusual) wedding. We asked them to document not only our wedding, but our 20-person hour-long musical performance! They were amazingly flexible at making it work! Above and beyond doesn't even explain their commitment. Our wedding was in San Francisco and they came out from SoCal to be there for the venue walk-through so they could see the space and get a sense of how to capture the night. They even got a third camerawoman for our wedding and had her come to our dress rehearsal a week before to make a sketch version of the performance.

They were totally easy to work with, technically-savvy, open to feedback, and totally enthusiastic about our wedding! We seriously couldn't have asked for a more professional or caring (and cool!) film crew! If you are considering dreaming big for your wedding, I highly recommend booking The Adventures Of very far in advance!

This review is long overdue, but honestly, it probably won't make a difference for The Adventures Of because I have no doubt that Kiera & Josh's talent, personalities, creativity and work ethic will ensure that they will always have tons of work on their plate. TAO did the filmography and ran the insanely fun Slo-Mo Booth for our wedding in May 2015 at the Birch Aquarium in San Diego. We were referred to them by our wedding photographer and it was one of the best vendor decisions we made for our wedding! Here's a tip: try to pick a videographer that your photographer has worked with so they know each others' styles and won't fight for the "best shots" - if not, then pick a super laid back and professional team like TAO, who can get along with anyone while creating a beautiful video to remember your special day by!

The videographer (and photographer) was the most important vendor for us because the day really did fly by and the only way I can remember and catch every amazing detail was through the creative and talented eyes of TAO. Style is of course the most important consideration and we just fell in love with TAO's, but TAO also earns top marks in every other aspect - Kiera & Josh are a super fun and easygoing couple and incredibly talented team, and the final videos they put together were perfection. They are also ninjas while filming - most of the time, I totally forgot that they were around because they got beautiful shots of all the important moments and details, but never disruptively or in a way that interrupted the flow of the day. Not to mention, they also set up and ran the SloMo Booth, about which all I can say is, every single party and wedding should have a SloMo booth. It makes an awesome & unique wedding keepsake of your guests and it is SO MUCH FUN!

The bottom line is, if you like TAO's style, book them ASAP - you will not regret hiring Kiera & Josh to perfectly capture every detail, highlight, and emotion of your wedding day!

Thank you so much, Val!! It was easy to create a beautiful, fun, and moving film when you and your husband are so genuine and open and fun to be around! I also love hearing that we are effective "video ninjas" :) I am so grateful that we got to celebrate with you!

Kiera and Josh are simply amazing! Most of my correspondence was with Kiera and she was on point. Her easy going attitude made her so enjoyable to work with and someone I really looked forward to sharing our wedding day with. On the day of our wedding, Kiera and Josh were so seamless and unobtrusive, I hardly noticed they were there. Once we finally watched our video, we knew they certainly had been there because they captured every little detail and wrapped it up into a gorgeous video we will cherish for years to come. They're professional attitude and design sense is totally worth every penny. Do not hesitate to hire The Adventures Of because your adventure is worth remembering with a beautiful video.

We knew we had to have Kiera and Josh for our wedding in Kauai and man we were we right! They were one of the best investments we made for our wedding. Originally my wife needed to be convinced to include videography into our wedding budget but once I got her on a Skype chat with them it was basically love at first sight. We knew we had to include them. In the first 24 hours of receiving our video I watched it 5 times. I also cried everytime. The emotions they captured, thing that as a bride you never see on your wedding day we now get to see, and memories that we will always have thanks to The adventures of....

We love these guys! Stop what you're doing and hire them now. You will not regret it. We have an amazing wedding video and friends for life!

Okay, where do I even start? This amazing couple has made our special even MORE special!

We first met The Adventures Of at our friends wedding; they were doing their SlowMotion booth. We were OBSESSED with the SlowMotion booth and just had to have it at our wedding. We contacted them (our friends had nothing but great things to say about them) and they were so professional and fun! Their communication is top notch. Their emails; quirky. Josh and Kiera put a smile on your face.

The attention to detail was so great. They sent us questionnaires to fill out to get to know us. Then they suggested getting together (kind of like a double date) to meet one another in person and really get to know one other. It was a blind date, but it was as if we had already been friends. Their just so damn likable and easy to get a long with.

These guys had such a long day at our wedding. We got married in a church in the morning then had a 3 hour break in between and then our reception. They were with us since the morning with the guys and girls getting ready all the to cleaning up at the end of the night.

Their slow motion booth is ridiculously awesome. If you don't know what a SlowMotion booth, well then….your missing out.

If you don't book The Adventures Of for videography and/or SlowMotion booth well then shame on you.

Love these guys!

I don't know where to begin with this review, because I have SO many great things to say about The Adventures Of! We hired Kiera and Josh to film a Love Story video for us in addition to having them video our entire wedding day--hands down, it was the best money we spent throughout the entire wedding planning process! They are so professional, responsive, passionate, enthusiastic, and easy to work with! They made us feel like we've known them our entire lives and they added so much comfort, joy and reassurance throughout our entire wedding day. We are beyond IN LOVE with our two videos and feel so lucky to have our love captured on film for the rest of our lives. We watch our videos almost daily and love them more and more each time. If you are on the fence as to whether or not to book a videographer for your wedding, get off the fence right now and book Kiera and Josh! I promise, you will thank me later :)
