At Toy Box Studios,



We believe wedding videos should be works of art.



We are a small team of Emmy-nominated artists who have a passion for evoking emotions and telling stories.


We believe your wedding video should be a work of art and who you are as a couple should always come across in your wedding video.



We specialize in creating custom, high-end, personalized wedding videos.



Our videos are timeless, elegant, classy, and are as unique as your love.



We are not a company that shoots 400 weddings a year; this is intentional so that we can create personal relationships with our couples.



We believe that devoting more time and energy to each wedding that we film, makes a better end product.



We offer two different, unique styles of video for you to select from so we can give you the wedding video of your dreams:

1) A Music Story: A video cut to music (no audio)

2) A Wedding Story: Our 'all the bells and whistles' package that tells your love story through audio clips from speeches, ceremony, vows.



We are Toy Box Studios. Storytelling outside the box... Read less

The company was very responsive when we made initial contact and booked the engagement video. Our engagement video turned out great and we were looking forward to the same quality video for our wedding.

On the day of the wedding, Ian and Mark were attentive and available for most of the day however we would have liked for them to have taken some footage of our wedding party photo shoot in the gardens as well as more dancing at the end of the night. Perhaps we could have communicated that better.

Although the quality of the video was great, our biggest complaint is the communication after our wedding day. We were told the videos typically take a min of 3 months to edit however the first copy of our video was not shared until 5 months later. It wasn't until we had emailed and called several times that Ian finally shared with us that the company had to redo the video as they were not satisfied with the job of their editor. We appreciated the honesty however it has been 6 months now and we have not received the finalized version of our video or the raw footage as promised in our contract. The company is virtually uncontactable. We have emailed and called several times to ask about the possibility of final changes and updates. The company has posted on social media several times since. We would at least appreciate acknowledgement of the emails we have sent so that we know that they have been received and the issues are being addressed. We have not been able to share the video with our families yet and our wedding was in May. We have attended several other weddings in Aug and they have already received their finalized videos. Overall, the video created was good quality but we are very disappointed in the level of professionalism and lack of communication.

Toy Box Studios responded with the following comments:

As a small business we strive to make every couple feel as if they are our only couple. This can be very difficult sometimes, and we don't always get it right. When a couple asks for multiple changes, we often charge for them, as per our contract. We had waived this fee for this couple given the circumstances.
We were very honest, in hopes that they would understand the situation. Sadly they still felt that wasn't good enough.

These guys have talent! The videos speak for themselves! Customer service was awesome and the quality in the video is awesome! I would recommend a Cinema video of your wedding any day. It's a great way to share all aspects of your special day with all your friends. Not just a person standing around with a camcorder. Excellent work guys! You guys rock! The video brings tears of joy to my Wife's eyes every time she watches the video.

Toy Box Productions was the videographer for my wedding this fall in Anchorage, Alaska. We only had video for our ceremony and during our pictures. Ian did an awesome job! He was creative in his method of shooting and very thorough as well. He was very professional throughout our entire wedding. We are more than 100% happy with his work!

Toy Box Productions did a fantastic job for our wedding. Ian and his crew followed us the whole day, but we hardly noticed it and then this beautiful video just showed up! One of their most impressive feats was pulling together a "teaser" video by the morning after the wedding. We had a small wedding and had decided to go with a videographer so that our friends and family who couldn't attend ceremony would still be able to see our day. It meant so much to us that we were able to send the teaser to everyone that morning and share our experience. The staff are professional and timely and fun to engage with. They clearly want to get to know you and what you're looking for from the video, but they have the ability to go above and beyond your own vision. I've recommended them to my own friends and colleagues, and would encourage anyone looking for a videographer to meet with the Toy Box team!

Working with Toy Box Pro was probably the best investment we made in our wedding. Their talent is beyond compare and we are so happy with our final product. When given the timeline for our wedding day, they insisted they be apart of my hair styling at the salon even though I said it wasn't necessary which really showed me they were invested in the hours of work and making a thorough piece for our wedding day. We had a little bit of difficulty getting a response initially but once we got the ball rolling everything went very smoothly. We also invested in getting the raw footage so we can see full lengths of certain parts of our day which was an added expense so the value we gave 4 1/2 instead of 5. Cost is always a deciding factor for us, but the talent and the final product again far exceeded our expectations!! I would recommend them to anyone especially in this day and age when videos of weddings are becoming less popular.

Thanks IAN!!

Ian and the Toy Box crew sent us our finalized video today. Wow. I can't recommend these guys enough. The finished product is like a movie preview for a romantic comedy that I actually want to go to. The production work has to be seen to be believed. As far as the wedding itself, they were very discrete and it was easy to be natural in front of the camera, which showed in the final product. If you're in the market, do yourself a favor and go to their website to check out some of their work. You'll be blown away.

My husband and I highly recommend working with Toy Box Productions. Ian and his team were very responsive and professional throughout our year of planning our wedding. When it came to the wedding day they did an amazing job. Orginally my husband was worried about having a camera around, but after the wedding he said he didn't even know they were there. Our wedding video turned out GREAT and we are so happy we have it to remember our special day. If you aren't thinking about doing a video, I highly recommend rethinking it and going with Toy Box Productions. You won't regret it!
