Kismet Video Productions
I booked Amy in short notice for my sons wedding. She did an amazing job from start to finish. Amy was able to capture all those moments that would have been missed if we had not had her there.
My husband and I used Amy as our videographer for our wedding and could not be happier with our decision! She was very professional and put her heart and soul into making a wedding video that we will cherish forever!! She captured every detail and created a wonderful video. We highly recommend using Kismet Video Productions for your wedding video!!!
Amy was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. She even followed up with us on how we enjoyed the video. Her work is fabulous, from the arrival, video, editing, and also the actual coverwork. I would recommend her anytime.
We just watched our video and it's AMAZING!!! At first, we were skeptical of purchasing a video AND photos, but we both feel that you captured our day in such a perfect way. Watching it, just now, was truly like re-living our wedding and now we have a copy that will last forever. We couldn't be happier with your hard work and attention to detail and we are so very happy and grateful that you were such an integral part of our special day! GREAT JOB!!! You are AWESOME!!!
Without a doubt, Kismet Video Productions (Amy Royer) is the definition of professional. She consistently demonstrated a strong work ethic and remained committed and dedicated the entire time! Her positive attitude and enthusiasm make the whole experience a lot of fun!!
Words truly cannot express how happy I am with my decision to hire Amy Royer as the videographer for our wedding! We were not going to have a videographer at all because we thought it would be too expensive. However, Amy completely proved us wrong! She genuinely cares about others and wants brides and grooms to be able to have something to show their friends, family and possibly future children later in life! Another plus about hiring Amy is that she is very, very flexible! In fact, we hired her about two weeks before our wedding and she was able and willing to help us even at the last minute, smiling the entire time! Her value is UNBEATABLE!!!
Not only are her services EXTREMELY affordable, but the quality is AMAZING!!! The video of our wedding, one of the most important days in our lives, truly exceeded all of my expectations!!! Even more notably, Amy is the most polite, professional and responsive person I have ever had the pleasure of working with!! Amy wanted everything to be perfect for our special day! She came to the rehearsal early; she was actually the first one there! Then, she stayed late to ensure that she knew exactly where to stand during the ceremony in order to get the best angles and capture every moment! She takes valuable time out of her day to make sure that everything is exactly how the bride and groom want it to be!! Amy is very responsive!! She asked the right questions and she accommodated all of our reasonable requests! Amy made this a stress-free experience for us!!
Amy is really on top of her game! To make sure that we could hear everything clearly, she placed a microphone on the groom. Then, just in case she missed anything, she used a back-up camera! However, she didn't end up needing it because she missed NOTHING! We received the DVDs only one month after our wedding!!! It was really fast!!
As you can tell, I have had a WONDERFUL experience working with Amy Royer of Kismet Video Productions! I would highly recommend Amy to anyone who is looking for videography services! You will not be disappointed!!!!
KISMET VIDEO PRODUCTIONS DID THE VIDEO FOR MY DANCE RECTIAL AND DID AN GREAT JOB! AMY WAS VERY PROFESSIONAL AND PLESENT TO WORK WITH AND I WAS EXTREMLY HAPPY WITH THE ENDING RESULT OF THE RECITAL VIDEOS.
Amy was a great videographer and she produced a high quality video. We went with the basic package with a few add ons and we couldn't be happier. The video is crystal clear with wonderful sound quality. We wanted the whole day captured and she didn't miss a beat. She somehow caught the whole day with us hardly noticing she was there.
After calling at least 15 videographers I had to go with Kismet. Not only were they the most reasonably priced for their services but they were also very responsive and flexible to our needs. Our class was the first group that they had worked on for a graduation/pinning ceremony instead of a wedding. Kismet did such a beautiful job with the videography. They provided this service for our Nursing Class Pinning Ceremony on May 12, 2012. Amy, the videographer was very easy to get along with. She came to both rehearsal and the pinning ceremony on time and was very professional on handling all transactions. Kismet makes sure your opinions are heard. They really involve the client in preparing the final product such as choosing the DVD covers and all other details of the video itself. The video was very clear and of high quality. I was very happy with the end result and so did the rest of my class. It will be something our class will treasure and enjoy to view over and over in the future.
So, whether you need someone for a wedding, graduation, or any event, I recommend that Kismet wiill sure give you what you expect, a beautiful video with great quality that your wallet can afford.

Amy was fantastic in providing professional as well as quality videography for our wedding day. My husband and I were left speechless as we watched our DVD made by Amy. She captured everything we wanted and more of our special day...our wedding.
I would definitely recommend her to anyone who wants to have an event (wedding, anniversary, etc.) recorded. What they would receive from Amy would truly be memorable. :)
thk amy for every thing u did for my son birthday party see u his next birthday again :)
Got in touch with Amy and explained that I needed a photo montage with music on video, that I needed for a friend whose mother recently passed away. Amy was very helpful and knowledgeable, she took all of my ideas was was able to convey them perfectly on video. I in turn, gave my friend the dvd and loved it! Thanks Amy, your the best!!
I could not have found a better videographer in Amy Royer. Her work is outstanding and ranks in the top videographers in the Chicagoland area. She offers many packages and her prices are well below what one would expect for the exceptional quality. She had truly wonderful ideas for our reception and her vision was perfect for what we were looking for. She listened to everything we wanted and made sure her work was exactly what we envisioned. Her efforts to ensure we were satisfied with the final product were top of the line. Amy is a very caring person and she helped us feel like we were one of her friends and that our reception was just as important as if it were her own.
Amy was also a tremendous help at the reception. She quietly stood by and made sure she got all the shots we discussed but amazingly assisted with directing the timeline of events from the beginning through the end of the night. She somehow knew when something or someone was needed and made sure the night went according to our plan.
I really don’t know what I would have done without Amy. Her caring demeanor, bubbly personality and her passion for making sure our wedding video was everything we hoped it would be went above and beyond what anyone would expect. I personally cannot thank her enough for making our day one we will always cherish with the memories she made come to life in her wedding video and photo montages.
Amy was an AMAZING videographer!!! I couldn't of found a better person to record my wedding! When i was planning my wedding I looked everywhere for videographers and they were all SO high in price,then I came across kismet video productions!! I went on the web site looked at the prices and it was unbelieveable I had to call and speak with Amy herself!!! They had SO much to offer for cheap!! Then you begin to think why are they so cheap and others are ridiculously expensive maybe the work is different?!? So Amy sent me some demos of other weddings she has done and it was AMAZING! I hired her right then!! She took so much time on meeting with me plenty of times before my actual wedding that the day of the wedding I felt like she was just one of my friends!!! Most people you don't know you feel uncomfortable in front of especially filming, not Amy she is fun and is so outgoing!! Kismet Video Productions definitly deserved a 5 star rating! I would recommend them for anything!
Amy did a great job filming a private party for our family. My mother was celebrating her 70th birthday and we had family from all over the state in town for the event.
Amy caught everything and did it very inconspicuously. In addition, she set up extra interviews and shots to help make the final video so much better.
The end product was truly excellent, combining everything from the night and making it something that my mom calls "her second wedding".
My mom constantly watches the DVD, which was delivered to us very quickly, and it will be something that we have in our family for a long time.
No one should hesitate to hire Kismet for their event, big or small.
Amy was our videographer this past October for our wedding at Starved Rock. She did an amazing job. She has a wonderful personality so it is very easy to be yourself around her while she is shooting. Amy is professional, caring, prompt, and hardworking. She came early and stayed later than agreed to, for our wedding, which was amazing because she was truly able to capture the day in its entirety. Our video was finished earlier then expected and was done to perfection. It was better then we ever could have dreamed. Thanks to Amy we were able to re-live our wedding day and also see things that we missed or do not remember. I highly recommend Kismet Video Productions, Amy was truly exceptional. We will cherish this video forever, and would recommend her company and services to anyone.

I had the pleasure of working with Amy at my Wedding. I could not have asked for more. She also tapped my wedding shower. She was able to put my shower then my wedding then my honey moon pictures on a wonderful dvd. I will always remember those days. I could not have asked for more. Thank you have caught those special moments for me.

Tammy and I absolutely love the job you've done capturing, editing, and completing the DVD of our wedding! Thank you for talking back and forth with us to make sure everything was perfect. You were very professional and we've already begun recommending you to friends! Everyone loves the way it all turned out. My mom started tearing up all over again! As we grow older, we know that we will not only have pictures to remind us of it, but we also have a professional quality video to watch over and over again, thanks to you. We can tell you truly love what you do. Once again, thank you so much!
Great company to work with very pro
As a photographer I often try to work with various vendors in the limited amount of time available. Amy from Kismet was very nice and accommodating and was a pleasure to work with.
Thank you again for being so agreeable and it was a pleasure to work the wedding with you as a...
