Rick did a great job creating our wedding video. He made sure that he captured all the moments that were most important to us, and we received our finalized video in short order. We are so happy that we have a video to capture the day, it's great to be able to see the parts that we missed, and the small details that are a blur in our memories.

Rick and his staff were very professional and worked within our budget constraints. The contracts were well written and easy to follow.

I personally appreciated the style and dress of the staff. They dressed to fit the occasion and blended in very well. Their services were top notch. The finished product that we requested were of the highest quality and received in record time.

Excellent service!

Rick was the ultimate professional. He worked with my wife and I to develop an amazing package for our wedding. The video allows us to re-live our amazing day each time that we watch it and is priceless to us.
Rick's commitment to service was never more apparent than during this year's holiday season. My wife and I decided to give out wedding videos to our closest family members for Christmas at the last minute. Though we had not spoken to Rick for more than two years, he was more than willing to help us with this special gift. He made the copies and sent them overnight, so that we could have them for Christmas day. If you are looking for a videographer, look no further than Videos By Design.

What an experience! From the first conversation, I discussed my budget and Rick made it happen. My husband did not want a videographer and thought that it would be "a waste of money." How wrong he was!!! He watches the video more than I do! I don't remember much from that special day. Besides the fact that this was my "day", I only remember seeing Rick one time! Rick captured everything! He is a best kept secret and his videos playback like a movie -- he made Our Wedding into a beautiful movie! Need I say more.....

We used Videos by Design for both photography and video. The video (which was shot by Rick) was very well done, it captured all the moments and we were very happy with it. The photographs were another story. We had one photographer for a wedding with 250 guests. He spent most of the reception leaning against the wall, when asked to take pictures by the couple he was very unresponsive. He did not take a single picture of the guests during the ceremony and he took no pictures of the cocktail hour. When we raised this issue with Rick he said the photographer was focused on the wedding party. For the cost of this service and the size of the wedding there should have been more than one photographer. The photographs we did receive were of good quality. The problem was the missed moments, we have 9 pictures of the guests in our wedding album with one or two guests in each picture. The one group picture we have is one we specifically asked the photographer to take. We reached out to Rick after viewing the raw photographs and he promised to capture stills from the wedding video and add them to the photographs. This never happened. I noticed that Rick posted pictures of another reviewer who gave a negative review, WE DO NOT AUTHORIZE publication of our wedding pictures.

Our first mistake was moving forward after the fact that Rick was 45 minutes late showing up to the engagement photo shoot. During this shoot I had to guide him through the shoot on photo shots that I thought would look nice. We should have counted our losses at this time - instead we felt we had made too many payments and our money was invested in him stepping up his game on our wedding day.
On our wedding day the photographer was on time but he was not very attentive as we can witness in our photos. Not to mention that Rick was late. The team that we were promised consisted of a photographer, videographer, and a video camera on a stand during the ceremony. Images were not posted online 3 days after the wedding.
After reviewing the photos and creating our own photo books we ran into a couple of issues that sadden us as well as our family. We had our expectations set high on how the photos would look – vastly disappointed.
We left our memories in Rick’s hands. We are disappointed in the end result of the photos overall and the missed photos that were not captured on our wedding day. Most of the photos look amateur and not centered or aligned properly. There were many errors within the photo collection. Photos missed were the venue, kiss, rings, and many more. I am sure that Rick has a keen eye for great photography in his tenure of this profession to know that these photos were well under par to be deemed professional.
We finally had a conference call to go over our dissatisfaction with the photos. Rick was very defensive and tried in no way shape or form to right his wrongs. He assured us that the missed moments were captured on the video. 2 months after the wedding and we finally received the videos and the videos are a tad better then the photos but still do not capture the moments missed. We got no apologies for our lack of satisfaction - very unprofessional in my opinion. He is not very responsive in getting back to people in a timely fashion.

Videos By Design and Photography responded with the following comments:

This is our 20th year in business. We have ALWAYS taken great pride in the videos & photos we deliver to our clients. We understand the emotional ties they have with preserving the memories of this one special day and the sacrifices they make to include professional photography & videography in their budget. We also understand that there will be some clients who are impossible to please. We have been blessed to have had only 2 or 3 such clients in the past 20 years. We are very proud of the videography & photography we delivered to this client. The work we produced for this client is typical of that which we produce for ALL of our clients regardless of their budget. I believe our work speaks for itself. Please feel free to view the photos that were delivered to this client and judge for yourself. We stand behind our work and have nothing to hide. Remember, there's always 2 sides to every story. God Bless!

Videos by Design met every expectation and even surpassed some. My international wedding was a bit of a challenge and the day was pretty long but they just worked with me on every detail. As a bride the last thing you want to worry about the day of your wedding is your vendors. They were just great!!!

My final video was great and although the editing process can be a bit time consuming I will always cherish this memory created by Videos by Design. I've recommended them to everyone I know.
