I was super excited to hire The McKellars after watching their work on their website. I had an initial call with Vanessa and was delighted -- she asked so many questions about me, my relationship, my family, my husband's family, etc. I could tell that accepting a job was a meaningful thing for Vanessa -- every step of the way was a moment for Vanessa to get a sense of the couple she is working with. On the day of my wedding, Vanessa and Brent showed up on time and felt like a part of the family -- they sort of blended into the background but knew exactly what prompts to give us (and our family and friends) to capture the things they needed to. They were never in the way, they were never annoying -- they sort of just were there, with us. The result? A video that captures the love that my husband and I have for each-other, and for our families, and for our friends. You can essentially feel our love and our joy bursting through the screen. They seamlessly integrated Super 8 old-school style film for a vintage feel mixed with modern camera work for a magical video that I watch pretty much everyday. They captured the mixing of my Jewish and my husband's Chinese background and culture and they meshed them together into a video that is entertaining and fun. It makes us laugh and cry and it captures details of the day we want to remember forever. I think because Vanessa and Brent are so in love, that this contributes to their work. They knew just how to pull the best pieces together and tell our story on screen. Hire them. This video will go well beyond the money you spend -- it's something you'll cherish forever.

THE BEST videographer ever!!!! Look no further, it did my detailed research and let me tell you I am the most picky person! I only wanted the absolute best and The McKellars are the absolute best!! Everyone that watched my video is amazed. It is a Hollywood five star style! Look at their website for samples and I am telling you - you will cry even if you don't know the people.:)) In addition, Vanessa is more than a videographer - she is hands on superwomen. Super sweet and helpful with anything she can. I am over the moon with my video. Please look no further!! Best money spent! (my only regret is that I only had them for 8 hours - had I know better I would've booked them for at least 10 hours).

I can't stop raving about my final video and my experience with the McKellars to all my friends and family. From the moment I viewed their videos, I knew the McKellars were going to shoot our special day...then when I spoke with Vanessa on the phone, it only confirmed I was making the right choice.

Vanessa went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable with all the details, they even mailed me adorable & yummy cookies, thanking me for booking with them (how cute!). Once I met Vanessa & Brent, on our wedding day, I instantly felt comfortable with the both of them. I never noticed them filming us but after watching our video they seemed to capture so many incredible moments I didn't even know happened! They covered every detail and made our video the most perfect caption of our wonderful day.

I was speechless for about a good minute after viewing our final film...it's was beyond perfect and far exceeded my expectations. All my friends and family raved about how beautiful it was and truly captured "us" in such a special and unique way.

If you are looking for a creative, well edited, amazing highlight video of your special day, by two kind and creative people -- look no further than The McKellars, you will not be disappointed & will forever have a gift of reliving your special day over and over.

Thank you Vanessa and Brent for everything! You truly did an incredible job! -Courtney & Luis

The McKellars are seriously THE best! I really can't say enough good things about them. From the moment of contacting them to receiving our videos, every interaction has been great, they are so friendly and easy going. They are a husband and wife team, Brent and Vanessa. Even though we couldn't meet in person before hand, I watched pretty much every video they have (which are all wonderful) and Vanessa had a phone consultation to go over all timelines, details and any unique requests for the wedding day. They even sent us a package of s'mores from Amy's Ice Cream last winter for being a client! So sweet! So, on top of their customer service being impeccable, they are a dream to work with! They make everything that is awkward about being filmed just feel normal and never seemed stressed even a bit on our stressful rainy wedding day. When we got our highlights and feature videos back we were completely blown away. Bring on the tears! Everything they create has such raw emotion mixed with beautiful film, perfect editing and brilliant creativity. We still keep hearing from our friends and family how much they love the videos and I am so grateful to have these memories to watch year after year and to show our future kids and grandkids They are a little expensive, but worth every single penny! One of the best decisions I made for my wedding!

Working with Brent and Vanessa is seamless and rewarding as they are true professionals. They are very conscious about making sure the lighting is perfect, and they work together with their vendors to not be intrusive to either the vendors or guests. I noticed their great rapport with everyone at the event as well so couldn't be happier with them. Also, I can't wait to see their video on Super 8 film that they did at the Alex and Sara wedding. They do fantastic work!!

The McKellar team is so talented! We knew their work would be amazing just by looking at the past videos but we were truly blown away by just how perfectly they captured our wedding. They truly care about bringing to life all of the details of the wedding- before, during and after! Vanessa and Brent have such an eye for beauty and piecing together moments with the perfect music- our video tells a beautiful story of the happiest day of our life! Also, they were great to work with- excellent communications throughout the planning process which helped make the wedding day smooth sailing! We are so thankful to have discovered The McKellars and that they were available to film our wedding. It's truly such a gift to be able to watch our wedding through the eyes of the best videographers out there!!!

Vanessa and Brent were amazing to work with!! They were SUPER easy-going and very professional, while being fantastic listeners and highly creative.

Being in CO, we had a few phone conversations and various emails about the film and any ideas or requests I had to make it truly custom and personal. They came up from TX without an issue and quickly adapted on set in the cold, windy/rainy weather we encountered in July!

Very reliable and quick to respond at anytime was also a huge plus!

These two were sneaky with the camera - shooting sweet and memorable moments throughout the day + night without anyone knowing they were "there.". They did such an excellent job! Our film turned out to be absolutely perfect - it captured our magical wedding day exactly as I remember it! It's beautifully shot and creative in the Super 8mm film I love. They are just so talented and were a delight to work with! Highly recommend - you won't be sorry! The film allows you to re-live it over and over again

It is hard to come up with the right words to capture what the McKellars do. I watched quite a few wedding videos from the McKellars and fell in love with the style and artistry of what they capture for each of their couples (and to be honest I was dying to have a beautiful shot of my dress hanging in a tree--despite much fretting from my mother and grandmother!). But what you get from Vanessa and Brent is truly more than a beautiful video, it is an emotional experience. Watching our video brings me right to that feeling, right to the emotions, and right to the excitement. What makes this so permanent is that they captured the essence of who we are. The video we have is more than a linear account of a fabulous day. It is truly a multidimensional layering of our story.
Now the real lowdown: I worried about how I would feel having a video camera around all day and how Vanessa and Brent would fit into the background of the day. While we talked on the phone and emailed back and forth I was not able to meet them in person until the day of our wedding. You share very intimate space with them (Vanessa must have spent at least 20 minutes sitting in a bathtub while I was getting my hair and makeup done!) and yet they just become part of the pack. And that is just part of their gift and charm. You want them to be a part of your day and they become a sweet part of your memories.

I watched so many videos and did so many searches, landing on Vanessa McKellar Productions a bit later in the game. There are so many talented videographers out there, but with each one, something wasn't my style. Until I came to Vanessa. Vanessa's videos had a timelessness to them, and she had such an eye for details. They were art in the same way that a well taken photograph is art. Each video I watched of the weddings of complete strangers made me cry. I was pretty sold at that point that not only did we need to hire a videographer but that we needed to hire Vanessa.

At our wedding, Vanessa and her husband Brent were wonderful to work with. They collaborated so well with our photographer, they were creative and funny, they put us all at ease, and it felt like we'd known them a lot longer than a few hours.

I had been following Vanessa's blog for years, so when I got engaged, choosing her as our videographer was the easiest wedding decision I made.

Throughout the engagement, she was there to answer any questions or concerns that came up. A couple of weeks before the wedding, Vanessa called me to ask how things were going, went over last minute details, and asked questions about me and my now husband.

On the day of the wedding, I felt like I already knew her when she walked in the room. The atmosphere was instantly professional yet comfortable. I never once felt like I was "on the spot" or at all uncomfortable.

When we received our video, we were impressed with everything, from the label on the box, to the packaging and presentation, and of course by the actual product. Our video was everything I had hoped it would be and more. Vanessa and Brent caught all of the moments that we hoped they would, but even more that we would have never known happened if it weren't for them. We now have a way to relive the best day of our lives over and over. Our future kids and grandkids also now have a way to see that day for themselves and meet relatives that they never had the chance to know.

Choosing VMP was the easiest decision for me to make in the beginning, and when the wedding was over, it ended up being the one decision that I did not regret in any way. You can not put a price on the experience and product that you get from this company.
