Brett Hardeman of Hardeman Films is amazing. There really is no other word for him and the videography he provides. He filmed a wedding for my best friend in November 2011. I watched it. I cried. I knew I needed him to do our wedding video. Brett traveled with us to Tulum, Mexico for a destination wedding - - he put up with us for three days and created the best 5:38 second masterpiece I've ever seen. I showed it to a wedding reception of over 500 people. There were tears. There was joy. There was pure delight. There is no one better when it comes to videography.
Brett and his crew were absolutely exceptional. From our first meeting to our last conversation he put us at ease and made us feel completely confident in him. Our wedding video captured the day perfectly and we got so many compliments from everyone. We had a destination wedding so to have this video we could show to friends and family that weren't able to make it was priceless. This is by far our best wedding investment and for anyone who is looking at wedding videography or is still unsure...do it and chose Brett.
I cannot say enough about the great job that Brett did for our wedding. He is amazingly creative and flexible. The compliments I've received about my highlight video make me so proud to have selected him to capture our day. Brett is great at making you feel at ease, and capturing just the right moments of your wedding day and then setting them to the perfect music. What he produces really are little works of art that bring all of the emotions of the day to life. He is a creative talent, producing works of art that put you right there in the middle of the day. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!
When we began planning our wedding we didn’t think much about having a videographer at first. We didn’t know that film could be produced and edited in such a wonderful way to capture your big day. Brett has mastered the art of this and made it possible to relive our wedding over and over. When we stumbled upon samples of his work we knew he could create something perfect for us. We are so glad that we chose him.
Brett is so nice and friendly and makes you feel comfortable during the shooting. I think he said thanks after every close up shot of us. He also took good notes of our interests and personalities and incorporated it into the film. The church we chose was very important to us and he captured the beauty of it so well. He also added tons of little details that were very important to us. How he knows how to capture one specific moment in so many different angles is pretty amazing. The music we chose for our video was used so well. Many of our friends and family said our video should be the music video for the song.
We were so excited and amazed at how fast he was able to develop a flawless video. We watched it over and over for several hours our first night and will never get tired of it. Your wedding goes by so fast that you wish you could go back in time and do it over again. Watching your wedding through his film is the best way to do that!
I have seriously watched our wedding video at least 30 times since Brett posted it just hours ago...I cannot get enough!! Initially we were not planning on hiring a videographer, but after reading brides blogs on their biggest regret was not having one I decided to start the search...
I spent hours on end searching the web and watching samples of countless videographers. Need less to say I am a bit picky, but only because I knew exactly what I was looking for. Once I came across Brett’s work I was in love. It wasn’t the typical wedding video. You could feel the emotions and love coming from his videos. So, I emailed...fingers crossed...said a little prayer...that he wasn’t already booked. Thankfully Brett was available!! woo
On the wedding day and everyday before Brett was such a pleasure to work with. He and his camera b man (Rhone) were never intrusive on the day...but yet filmed right in the action.
The day we returned from our wedding I received an email from Brett that he was finished with the ceremony and working on the highlight video...needless to say I was suprised. Here I am at the airport and our video is already almost complete in a weeks time!!!
The video is beyond words. It is perfect and more than I could have imagined. Only having it posted for several hours we have received sooo many compliments. Brett has given us the opportunity to have these wonderful memories to watch for a lifetime. So, in short when looking for a videographer, skip the search, and just hire Brett. You won’t be disappointed. Promise.
Choosing Brett Hardeman to film our wedding video was one of the smartest decisions we made in planning our wedding. When my husband and I first discussed our budget for the wedding we had to decide what was most important to us. Remembering the night was of course high on our list, and after watching Brett's sample videos on his website we knew this was the way to do it.
We had one meeting with Brett before we signed contracts and that was all it took. He was friendly and showed up prepared! He gave us all the details we needed, showing us more samples, lists of songs, and asking us questions about us so that he could cater to our wedding style. We booked him a year in advance and he was on top of everything throughout the whole process.
Brett gave us even more than we expected with his dedication and hard work the day of our wedding. He showed up at our venue right on time and was ready with ideas and a plan. I didn't have to ask for anything and was completely confident that he knew what he was doing. Between Brett and his partner Rhone, they captured every detail of one of the most special days of our lives. I knew they were dedicated to getting the best shots they could when they convinced me and my husband throughout the wedding to step aside and do extra footage besides just the typical wedding reception events.
When it came to the finished product, we were absolutely thrilled! Everyone tells us it feels like a preview for a movie that is our wedding. Even family that could not make it were made to feel as if they were really there. Friends of mine told me even random strangers who happen to oversee the video were brought to tears. My mom watched the video over and over and still keeps telling me how much she loves it and wishes she had something so wonderful from her wedding.
I am so happy that we were lucky enought to find Brett so that we could be left with something we will cherish for the rest of our lives. It is not just a wedding video, it is a memory.
No need to look further! Brett knows how a beautiful wedding should be shot, and delivers an exceptional wedding video as a keepsake for years to come. :) Trust me, you will not be disappointed!
Brett shot our wedding in July, and he did such a fabulous job on it that he made our single friends wish they were getting married just to hire this guy!! It has been 3 1/2 months since our wedding, and both my husband and I still cannot get enough of our wedding video. He captures the love and beauty of the wedding day. He is a true artist as his camera is his paintbrush and the world is his canvas. You will only receive a masterpiece with Brett.
Brett shot our wedding film back in June. It is amazing!! I have gotten the most wonderful feedback from our family and friends. He far surpassed any expectations I had for a videographer. He was easy to get in contact with and bent over backwards to accommodate all of our requests. I would say this was the best decision we made during the whole planning process!
Brett of Hardeman Films did an amazing job on our Wedding Highlight Video and our Love Story. I am so impressed with his work and love to watch the videos over and over again! I proposed 2 additional services that he had not done before and he was very eager to take on the new projects including our Love Story video and a Honeymoon Highlight Video. He was extremely flexible and very reasonably priced. Much better than anyone else I found in the Austin area. All in all, Brett is a really cool dude and an amazing cinematic videographers and I could not be happier with his work!
Brett was our videographer for our wedding this last Febrary. I knew exactly what I was wanting in our wedding video and he listened and came through with a fabulous video for us. We weren't back from our honeymoon but a few days when we got the call our video was ready. I couldn't believe he got it done that quickly. My sister who got married a few months before me used a different videographer and didn't get her video for 6 months.
My husband and I highly recommend Brett as your videographer. I already recommended him to a friend who used him this month. Brett is amazingly talented and so much fun to work with. Thank you Brett for putting this wonderful wedding video together for us!
Brett was wonderful! He worked with me and did everything I wanted. I was very picky when picking a videographer because that is how I am going to save my wedding memories and wanted my videos to be very special and well put together. I am so glad that I found and chose him! He communicated with me very well. He was on time, actually early to my wedding to capture the prewedding shots. He was very personable and easy to work with. He added extra things that I put together to my DVDs so that I could have everything put together just how I wanted it. He videoed my wedding at Old Glory Ranch in December and the video turned out great! I loved how there was a link to view the videos. I was able to send it out to my family and friends and add it on facebook. Everyone loved the videos and gave great complements. My favorite was the highlight videos. It showed my entire day/night in just a few minutes with the songs I picked out. The videos were put together very quickly after the wedding. I was surprised how quick they were finished. It was obvious the he put a lot of time and effort in it. He worked hours and hours straight so that I could get it back soon. I have kept in tough with Brett even after my wedding and he gave me advice on what camera to purchase for photography. Brett did an awesome job for my wedding videos and I have no regrets. I am very happy I chose him to work with. I hope you get the opportunity to have him video your wedding and you will not be disappointed!
Brett Hardeman did our wedding videography on July 5th, 2009. The film is by far the best investment we made at our wedding, besides of course the marriage itself! After 15 months of marriage, we still receive compliments every week on the quality and style of the video! Brett had the film done two weeks after the wedding, which was so fast. He really went above and beyond for us.
We never noticed he was filming, he was really intentional and non-intrusive during the whole process. He captured every moment that I hoped he would and did an excellent job selecting the material for the final project. If you can get Brett to film your wedding or event, I wouldn't think of using anyone else.
These guys made such a great film of my wedding day I felt I was watching something on TV or in the movies. They specialize in cinematography rather than videography and edit together a story for you that is more like video art than just some clips of your wedding day. Brett and team were extremely professional and captured some great moving pictures of our special day, we highly recommend these guys, just watch my wedding trailer as proof!
Choosing the right person to video your wedding can be daunting and honestly, I was overwhelmed with all the choices out there and options to decide on while at the same time, stressing over all the other wedding details that were requiring my attention.
What I liked about Brett is that I hired him and he took over the rest of it. He knew exactly the best shots to take and knew what I would cherish watching over and over. I didn't have to direct him to "Be sure to get this. Don't forget about shooting that" etc.
We brought him to our Mexico destination wedding in Playa del Carmen and not only did he capture the wedding, he was able to capture other events such as the days before the wedding and departing Playa so the video actually told a story.
The songs he choose for our wedding video came from our first dance together and some of the music he chose on his own. The actions he captured and how they went along with the tone of the music was outstanding. He really is meticulous in the editing part of the video which makes his videos stand out from other videographers out there. Many of the videos we saw when searching for a videographer were just a replay of the ceremony. Brett's films are different in that they are truly works of art. The video he made of my wedding still brings tears to my eyes, but he is so creative and good at what he does that I can watch other wedding videos on his website and I start to tear up (even though I don't even know the freakin' peeps!)
In fact, he was so good, I hired him again for our wedding and reception that we had in Austin for all the folks who couldn't travel to Mexico. Again-he delivered another video masterpiece!
Highly recommend Hardeman Films for your wedding video!
Side note to the ladies: Brett is also "easy on the eyes" with a great sense of humor so all your single bridesmaids will have no problem working with him to get your video just right! :-) Even my Austin wedding coordinator started asking me if he was single!!.....
Brett's videos are simply amazing...great editing, music, style! He travelled to Cuero a couple of years ago for a ceremony/reception and we STILL view the video from time to time...it's wonderful!
Brett is such a talent! I was literally blown away after seeing the final video from a wedding that we shot together. He is amazingly creative and will be sure to create something totally unique that you will cherish forever without being cheesy!
