Digital Motion Films
Digital Motion Films provided the photography and videography services for our June wedding. From the very beginning, we were treated as the #1 customer. Duane and Ashley worked with us throughout the planning process to understand our vision for the day. Of all of our vendors, they were always the most responsive. For each communication, we received a response within 24 hours. For each payment, we received a confirmation that payment was received. The good communication greatly decreased the stress of planning a wedding.
On our special day, the team arrived exactly on time. The team had copies of the points we discussed throughout the months prior to the wedding. They also put together a very helpful schedule for pictures, which helped incredibly as many of our wedding party members as well as our guests were from out of town. This really helped the day flow well as everyone knew where to be and at what time. More than anything, Digital Motion Films made sure that our vision and desires for our special day were carried out in photo and video. They were sure to take a variety of photos and multiple shots to ensure the image was pleasing.
We received our photos and videos ahead of schedule. We were very impressed with this timeliness as we were married in June, which happens to be one of the busiest times of the year for a wedding vendor. We were extremely impressed with the final products, which were photo prints, a hard copy photobook, and several dvd copies of our wedding day video, which included clips throughout the day, as well as special messages from our family members at the end of the video.
All of our friends and family have commented on the impressive work of Digital Motion Films. We could not have asked for a better vendor or for a better day. Thank you for a wonderful experience, Digital Motion! We will definitely recommend you to everyone we know!
We absolutely LOVED working with Ashley and Duane! They are the sweetest couple you will ever meet! Ashley literally stepped in to help with things during the wedding that she REALLY didn't have to! She was such a big help! Duane is so good at taking photographs we definitely plan on using him for future photographic needs! They offer great bundles for photography and videography if you really want both - which we did! We loved our DVD and I can't wait to show it to our family and friends. It is such a beautiful keepsake for our children and generations to come!
Thank you Ashley and Duane for all that you have done for us! You gave us tangible memories of our special day that are so beautiful and priceless!

Hey guys! We got our DVDs today and watched it as soon as we were both home from work! LOVE IT SO MUCH! Thank you for capturing our day in such an awesome way! We loved seeing the little things that we didn't notice or couldn't remember from the day of...I could watch it 50 more times right now. Y'all are so great at what you do! We can't wait to show this off to everyone!
Thank you again for everything!
Hope you guys are well!
Ashley and Jared
These guys did a wonderful job. Our budget was a bit small, but they worked with us on the price. They arrived early and took a lot of great photos. We got our photos within 30 days of the wedding. They were very friendly and blended right in at the reception. We hardly noticed they were there. Definitely recommend!
Very professional and fun to work with!! The CD is awesome! It is something that we will always cherish!
On very short notice, Digital Motion Films agreed to video the wedding/reception of my niece. Not only were they flexible, but did an absolutely great job with the finished product. A great job...and I would highly recommend them to anyone!
My wife and I couldn't be happier with our choice of Videographer for our wedding. Digital Motion Films were so easy to work with and delivered an incredible video of our special day. Duane and Ashley are truly gifted at what they do. They managed to capture all of our special moments and we hardly knew they were there. I was most impressed with their editing work and how they intertwined our vows...so neat! It would be a mistake not to use Digital Motion Films for your wedding.
Wonderful videography team!
Wow, what a video! I was amazed at what we received as a finished product. Everything about this video is professionally done. From the DVD cover, the case it came in and the quality of what we have to watch and show to everyone. Our wedding video is better than I could have imagined. To anyone that reads this review, do not let someone shoot your preparations and ceremony that does this kind of work for their friends. The decision to use Digital Motion Films, has given us and will give us something I want to see over and over again.
I was so amazed by my wedding video. It was like watching a dream come true and it was edited perfectly. I would recommend them to everyone. The quality of their work was so amazing and if I ever need videography services again, I will definitely use them.
We couldnt have asked for a better videographer! Every attention to detail made our video a cherished treasure. I felt that our day was just as important to Digital Motion Films as it was to us. They are easy to contact, "invisible" yet caught everything on film and very trustworthy!
It has been asked on more than one occasion, �Why did you hire a videographer to film your wedding? Our response has always been �Why not? Life is like a vapor...that appears for a little while and then vanishes. A wedding is highly regarded milestone, so if you don�t want to miss anything important, you should let a professional film the event.� Digital Motion Films did a fantastic job artistically sewing together the various elements of our wedding season. They were courteous, peaceful souls that captured all of our important moments. They demonstrated fast communication skills, and excellent professional judgment. These are characteristics that provide confidence in a vendor�s ability at such a detail oriented occasion. The emails, the questionnaire, and the phone calls asked us the precise questions that we needed. Wedding Package 4 is worth every single cent, it is reasonably priced, and the final production was a Win/Win deal.
I have been married three years now, and I think everyone has seen my wedding video two or three times. Digital Motion Films made my wedding effortless. Very professional and great to work with. With everything that was going, I had a worry free wedding day thanks to them! I would recommend to any couple thinking about getting married. They recorded my memories that will last a life time!
Excellent vendor and a pleasure to work with. Beautiful films!
Duane and Ashley with Digital Motion Films do fantastic work and are a pleasure to work with. There are very few people that I will refer for video, but I confidently recommend the services of Duane and Ashley with Digital Motion Films. They are truly professional and provide top-notch customer service. You can't go wrong choosing Digital Motion Films for your wedding!
Here's what we are.....
we are a someones son and daughter.
we are a husband and wife.
we are a friend.
we are professional videographers and photographers.
I would love to share more with you. You can read much more about my style, life and many other things on my blog digitalmotionfilms.com
we are very happy to customize a package for your particular needs if one of our coverage options does not fit what you are needing.
I do recommend that couples who are interested in reserving their date with Digital Motion Films do so in a timely manner. Each year I have couples who call back to book their date, only to find that it is no longer available.
If ever a single moment of your life is worth preserving, this is one. We capture the emotions, as only a moving picture can, and thoughts and moments deserve to be preserved... all the sights and all the sounds that photography can't do alone. Ask yourself this – if you could view your grandmothers 1st dance with your grandfather or the photo of it, which would be more of a memorable moment? The day will come soon when you will have friends and family that you once did not have. As oppose to just telling them about your wedding, they can relive it with you. The sights, sounds, and feelings of your day…there is nothing like it. After all, it only happens once.
I noticed that all of your packages come with at least two cameras covering the ceremony. Is this necessary?
Yes, we will always shoot with at least two cameras for your ceremony. There are moments that are just too important to chance. If uncle Bill stands up in front of our only camera during your first kiss then that moment will be lost forever. Not only that, but this gives you different angles and views of your ceremony giving you the movie feel and visual appeal of your day.
How will you know what I want in my finished video?
Every package we offer comes with a wedding consultation. What that means is we will get with you about a month before your wedding and find out what important elements you want captured. You can let us know what people, special events, and other content is important to you. We can also share other ideas that will enhance your wedding video as well as just get to know the both of you better in helping us personalized the video uniquely to your personality.
When should I expect my finished video?
On average, your video takes about six to twelve weeks, depending on the wedding package and wedding season. We spend a great deal of time to produce your video just right. We don’t want to rush this process; we want to give you a video you can be proud of and show your children and grandchildren. We want you to absolutely love your video!
Can I order extra copies of my wedding video?
Yes, extra copies can be made for friends or family and can be ordered by calling or e-mailing us with the name and wedding date. Each additional copy comes complete in its original custom case. All of our packages include multiple DVD’s for sharing with family.
How do I reserve my date?
You can call or email us to reserve your date. Because of the extra time we devote to each wedding, we limit our dates to ensure the best possible commitment to each wedding and they fill up fast. Or if you would like, we can arrange a meeting at our offices, over the phone, or at your home. We require only a $99 deposit to reserve your date. If you live out of the area, we can process everything by phone, fax, and e-mail. Find out more under the wedding packages page on our website.
I’m on a budget. Do you offer payment plans?
Yes, we offer 3 different payment plans for everyone’s budget. The first option is to pay your $99 deposit to hold the date. Then we break the rest of the balance into 3 payments. The second option is to hold you date for $99 and if you pay the remaining balance in 30 days or less, you’ll get a 5% discount off the total price. The third option is to pay $400 down and not have to pay another cent until your wedding day.
What makes Digital Motion Films different?
We not only film your event but we will produce for you a video that will tell your story, take a look at our past work, I think you will find just this.
Will my videographer be obtrusive?
No. Like we always say, we are there to capture your day, not be apart of it. We will discuss all your details before your wedding date, so when the time comes, we are ready to go. Over the years we have acquired an extensive list of venders that love working with us because we never get in the way or are obtrusive in anyway and we help in any way we can.
How will the final video be packaged?
Your wedding film will be a personal movie created for your wedding day with it’s own custom packaging and DVD. The DVD has custom menus with music. Most packages come with chapter menus as well, so when you want to show your friend your vows, pop it in and select it on the menu.
I don’t know much about cameras and equipment so should I worry about what equipment you use?
Not at all. Without going in to all of the technological mobo-jumbo, rest assured we are always on the cutting edge of our craft using broadcast quality cameras, filters, tripods, steadicams, and other equipment, with the experience and know how to run them. We offer with every package the use of wireless microphones to capture your vows and other important moments for crisp clear sound. We come prepared with lots of footage, battery power and backup equipment to make sure nothing goes wrong, and if tries to, we’re ready.
How should I choose a professional wedding videographer?
You should choose a videographer that you are comfortable with most of all. We would like you to call or shoot us an email, and we want to get to know you, not as a vendor, but as friends. View the past work on our website or sample DVD. There are many different styles of shooting and editing. We are very versatile at personalizing your video to you because after all, this is your wedding, which is not like any other, so why should your video be.
Will I watch my video more than once?
Our clients tell us they watch their videos over and over again. We still watch ours years later. We're creating a movie of your wedding day that is fun and exciting to relive.
How are the songs selected on my video.
You pick the songs, or leave that up to us. Simple right? We say if you don’t like the song, you’re not going to like the video, and we can’t have that.
When do you show up and leave?
When do you want us to show up and leave? We are your videographers and you choose when you want us to be there. The only thing we ask is that we are there at least an hour before the ceremony. Other than that, it’s up to you. We will go over all of that during the pre-wedding day consultation
What is your style?
What is your style? This is dependent on you and your personality from the song selection to the editing style, traditional shots or more of a modern style. We produce wedding films, documentaries, 'Wedding Story' films, and others. Remember, it’s your wedding; let it be your wedding video.
Are your videographers a member of a videography association?
No, we are not affiliated with any associations of any kind. We have found that it’s not beneficial to you in the end for us to spend money on any association’s dues that you end up paying for. We keep all cost down, but yet still stay up on shooting techniques, editing styles, and all training that keeps us ahead of the curve.
Who will film my event?
We will. The people you speak to from day one are the same people that will show up at your wedding to do all the filming and editing of your video.
