These guys were great! Super laid back and on time and professional.
At first my husband and I decided against having a videographer at our wedding because we thought it would be enough to just have a photographer. We then had a friend highly recommend that we get a videographer because the wedding day goes by so fast and there are so many things the bride and groom won't get to see. Kevin with Pristine Videos was the videographer at our friend's wedding, so we took her advice and hired Pristine Videos. I must say this is the BEST decision we made!
Kevin was the videographer at our wedding as well. Him and his staff were so easy to work with and super friendly. Kevin and his assistant arrived right on time and got straight to work. I must admit that once I put my wedding dress on it finally felt real and my nerves started to get the best of me. Kevin was so easy going and kept me laughing, which helped calm me down. Thank you Kevin!
Our wedding was just 12 days ago so the staff at Pristine Videos are currently working on our wedding video. Even though we have not seen the wedding video yet, we just know it will be perfect. We know Kevin and his assistant got all the important moments on film, which we can't wait to see. After the wedding ended, we had several family members and friends tell us what an awesome job our videographer did. They said he was running around the entire night capturing everything. This was so great to hear.
I should also share with you that I had a picture of my deceased grandmother hanging on my bouquet. I asked Kevin to please get my bouquet on film. Kevin took my bouquet and gave my grandmother the spotlight. This was so important to me and I am so grateful to Kevin for giving my grandmother that special moment too. With this said, I can assure you the staff at Pristine Videos will meet all special requests you might have. If it is important to you then it is just as important to the staff at Pristine Videos.
Our advice to all the brides and grooms out there is to get a videographer and make sure it is one from Pristine Videos. We are so grateful our friend recommended us to Pristine Videos. Pristine Videos is the best around and their prices are super reasonable and affordable. The quality of service received surpassed all our expectations. We can't express enough how great it has been to work with the staff at Pristine Videos. They are all AMAZING!
We will go ahead and end this with recommending that all you brides and grooms reading this review contact Pristine Videos NOW.....you will be grateful you did.
Kevin and his staff is awesome. The were so non-invasive rather than other videographers i've experienced. You hardly knew they were there and I really like that about them because really captures the moments as they truely unfolded.
Kevin was great to work with. He worked really well with our photographer too. He was so good, I didn't even notice him during the ceremony. He was really nice and made us feel very comfortable. He really knows what he is doing. Our video is awesome. He was so quick on getting us our highlight video and then our whole wedding video wasn't far behind. Pristine Video is a great company to work with. I would definitely recommend them to anyone.
Kevin and his team were AMAZING!!!! I am super shy around cameras, but they somehow made me feel so relaxed like they weren't even there! As promised, 60 days after our wedding date Kevin sent me a link to our Highlight Reel of our day and It was perfect. All of our friends and family complimented on how awesome the 5 min reel was and how it captured the most important moments from the entire day all in 5 minutes. A few short days later, we received our disc and we loved it! They do quality work and are so friendly...Kevin even downloaded all of our raw footage onto a hard drive for us! Thank you so much for all your hard work, I'm so glad Pristine Videos shared our special day with us!
Pristine Videos was absolutely amazing!! We were very impressed with how comfortable they made us feel in front of the camera! Everything went smooth and we really enjoyed working with them. It didn't feel like we just met them, we felt like we had known them for years. Thank you so much for everything! We will treasure our video! Sincerely, John & Kristen
Kevin and Lisa from Pristine were very easy to work it. The day of the wedding Kevin was punctual and busy capturing great moments. We cannot wait to see our video! We know that they will provide us with a wonderful video to last a lifetime. The day of the wedding we asked as a last minute request to stay and film extra time and they had no problem with that. Great videography company!
Unfortunately we did not plan in advance for a videographer. We had to find one within a week of our wedding day and it was a bit stressful! Pristine Videos was one we found online who would reduce the price for us since we only wanted our wedding ceremony recorded, and not the reception, etc. I'm grateful they reduced the price, however, the sound quality was not up to par. Music was extremely important to me, and there was a mix-up with the microphones. My husband's mic was on the entire ceremony, but the priest's mic was not on. There was a lack of communication before the ceremony began, which then highlighted every whisper or note my husband sang during the ceremony. We emailed Pristine Videos about this, and they were unable to do anything about the sound quality. They were sorry, and so were we...
I got married in Vegas and I couldn't find a videographer without breaking the bank. I really, really wanted one. I found Pristine and they had the best deal even though there were out of town! Kevin was awesome during the wedding. Video turned out awesome! So glad I found them!
We loved working with Pristine Video for our wedding! We originally met with Kevin in San Diego and immediately felt comfortable with his unassuming manor, which was exactly how we was on our wedding day. He never made us feel akward, but did an excellent job capturing our memories. We felt the package we purchased was a great value and the product exceeded our expectations (we thought it'd be super corny, but it doesn't feel that way at all). One great thing they did was send us a draft video and then we provided comments on what we'd like changed, making the finished product really ours. Thank you Kevin and the Pristine team, we loved working with you! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Lisa and the Pristine team was amazing! From start to finish she was professional and always exceeded my expectations! I just got my video back a few weeks ago, and it is perfect! Im so glad I went with Pristine and Id recommend them to any Bride looking for a great video at a great price! ~Candice and Brian Sanders
Pristine Video was a joy to work with. Lisa answered all of my questions and made me feel at ease. She did a wonderful presentation at her office so we knew what to expect. They were also willing to send our videographer to two different locations so we could make the most of the 8 hours we got in our package. Our videographer was great to work with, was professional, was ontime, and got so much video footage...not one moment was missing. He took some amazing and unique shots. I would highly recommend Pristine Videos!
Very professional during wedding day and easy to work with. We had a separate photographer and they both figured out how to work together. We also loved the edited version of our video. They positioned the camera well, had good angles, and captured all the key moments.
We had Pristine Video as our videographer and we are so glad! Kevin was a pure professional! Everytime something was happening, they were there catching it on video! I so can't wait to see the final video! Thanks also to Lisa who is the best! If you are looking for a great videographer.. then the only choice for you is Pristine!
We just got married so we have not received our video yet (will write additional review after). So far, we have loved working with Pristine and Lisa. They have been very helpful and really did a great job on our montage during the reception.
I found Pristine Video via their website. I'm glad I did. Videography was actually on the lower end of my priority list, but I'm glad I got one and I'm glad I had Pristine Video. They really give you the most bang for your buck! At the time of my wedding they had a "special" running which included everything I wanted.
One thing that threw me for a loop was that aside from when the videographer introduced himself to me, I didn't even know they were there - yet they managed to capture all the key moments from the day.
Pristine Videos was reliable and easy to communicate with. They are very responsive and made sure we were happy with our end result. They shot our wedding and captured the highlights we were hoping. They have a good sense of editing and are professional to work with.
We booked with Pristine through Lisa. After calling and finding out if they were available for our date, we had our initial meet within a few days. Lisa gave us an excellent presentation of a few examples of their work and was very thorough about all the details. We decided very quickly that we would be using Pristine as our videographers. Not only were their prices competitive, but they had good equipment that would be able to capture our day in HD quality.
As our day quickly approached and we had our reception timeline pretty much figured out, we felt like we may need our videographer for an additional hour. I sent off a quick email and Lisa was able to ensure that Xavier, our videographer, would plan on being there for that extra hour. This happened only a few days before the wedding day, so that was a huge relief.
During our day we never felt that Xavier and his assistant ever really got in the way, but we were confident that they were still capturing all the important events of the day. That to me is a sign of a great videographer. We are at the stage of sending in our music requests to be put in our DVD, and our experience so far with Lisa and Pristine has been nothing but positive. I would highly recommend using them, as they are polite, professional, and responsive.
Pristine Videos was more affordable than other local videographers. I viewed videos of their work and think they did a good job. I rated the, as a 3 for value because I haven't seen my finished product yet. My advice would be to contact them before your big day to discuss what you want in the video. I'm anxious to see how my video turns out. A friend of mine used them and loved their final product.
Ok, so my mom and I met with Lisa and Kevin and they showed us sample videos, which we loved. We also loved Kevin and Lisa so I made sure that they put in the contract that Kevin be out Videographer for the day of the wedding. Well, 4:00 comes around and two guys who I never met show up and say they are the videographers. Well, to be honest, I freaked out. I mean, no one told me that Kevin was not going to be able to make it. Also, I didn't see Lisa anywhere, and she said she was going to be there.
Well, we got Paul and Zean (sp?), who actually turned out to be great guys. We have not seen the videos yet but they had some really cute ideas about things to do, so hopefully those came out cute.
Later on, after the ceremony, I finally saw Lisa, which was also strange because we asked them how many vendor meals and they had told us 2 so I don't know who didn't get to eat. Anyway, She was there to make sure everything stayed on time, etc. But Paul and Zean were really funny, and kept us laughing. So I guess it wasn't a total disaster. :)
So other than the fact that we had Kevin down as our videographer in the contract and him not showing, that was the only "disaster" that occurred. But I will reserve judgment until we see the videos, which Lisa e-mailed me and said it should be around mid to later August.
I will be back to update this post and let you know how it all turned out.
We paid for two videographers for eight hours. Long story short, they were 30 minutes late and got off an hour early. They also missed A LOT of our wedding. There was only 2 and half hours of raw footage from the whole wedding!
The video was sent to us within the time we were told, and I had a lot of changes that I felt should have been made. It was too time consuming trying to get them to edit the video how I wanted, so I just said send me the copies. I am very disappointed with this company and the way they handled us as customers. I am definitely not satisfied with my video and am sad much of my day was missed.
We decided to use Pristine Videos for our wedding because they were in our budget, their customer service, and their creativity. We looked at several vidoegraphers in the area and all of their video samples looked the same. Pristine Videos had creativity. Each one was different depending on the couple. On the day of, Kevin was early! He was respectful of the churches rules on where videographers could go, etc. His partner was fabulous also!! Kevin even followed us to the beach to get some more shots (it was a 15min drive from the church). Overall, they were fantastic!
Great finished product with a reasonable cost.
We met with Lisa and felt comfortable with her and also the sample DVDs she showed us and booked with Pristine Videos. Throughout the wedding planning process, Lisa was always responsive to our questions. On the day of, the 2 videographers were superb. They captured everything but we never felt like they were in the way. One videographer showed up first (on time) and the other one stayed until the end of the night (making sure that we didn't need anything else before he left).
After we came back from our honeymoon, I already had an email from Lisa stating that our DVD was in the mail. After watching the video, we asked Lisa to make a few changes and she was happy to comply. Overall, our experiences with Pristine was awesome. We highly recommend their services. And the best part is, after much research, I believe that Pristine offers the most for the price that they charge.
We are extremely happy that we used Pristine Videos. Our video from our wedding was AMAZING! They are so great to work with...they answered all of our questions and always got right back to us when I emailed or called. The video guy was never in the way- I barely noticed he was even at the wedding yet he captured all the events. The price was great and the product even better. I can't recommend them enough!
AMAZING experience. They did a FABULOUS job of capturing the moments that made our wedding fun and special! and they really listened to what we wanted and delivered MORE than expected and SOONER than expected! They are very professional yet friendly. I would recommend them to all readers. They are the best !
They are very professional and very responsive to all phone call, e-mails and all requests. Kevin was our videographer and he was amazing, he worked very well with our photographer and is so easy going.
The pricing is very reasonable and very worth the cost. Thank you guys very much for your hard work. We appreciate all the effort you took into making our experience memorable.
From beginning to end Pristine Video was AMAZING to work with. Lisa was so wonderful and understood exactly what I wanted. Their prices were very reasonable, and the quality of service we received was better than we could have ever imagined. We got married on Coronado Island, and were coming from Arizona, so finding vendors that we were comfortable with, and trusted was very important. We had no worries with Pristine Video. We were kept in the loop about everything from start to finish.
The day of our wedding, Pristine showed up right when they said they would, and got right down to business. The crew was very professional, dressed very nicely and they were so friendly and easy to work with. We had such a great time with all of them. They got every special moment, and all the moments that I missed.
When we received our highlight reel, I was in tears. It was beautiful, and it captured not only the images, but the feeling and the emotion of the day. Then we received the video and immediately called all of our friends and family. Everyone was in awe. The video was so well put together and so professional. It was like reliving our day!
If there are two things I would recommend to ANY bride, they would be 1-get a videographer, and 2- GET PRISTINE VIDEOS. I would have regretted not having a videographer for my wedding, like many of my friends. And no one would have put my video together as nicely as Pristine.
Thanks again guys!!!

From our first meeting to receiving our DVD's. Prinstine Videos was the perfect choice. They pretty much had the service of what ever we wanted they could make it happen. We were so nervous about the hiring of our videographers but Lisa made us erase all fears from the first meeting. Our camera operators were truly awesome. They even got with our photographer during the ceremony to get all the best angles and shots possible. The best part was when watching the dvd i had no idea the camera was even there.. when we got the dvd we thaught it would be like any other cheesy wedding video people always want to show but it was off the chain. I mean they put segments together with the audio and voice overs so perfect you would have thaught a movie studio did it. Then to top if alloff they were i promise you at least $800 to $1000 less then everyone else we searched and we met with 5 vendors before finding them... Lisa thank you so so very much for everything. You captured our most special moment better than we thaught possible and we will cherish it for a lifetime.........
We were very happy with our decision to budget in a videographer, as well as the decision to hire Pristine Videos. The beautiful memory Pristine Videos helped to create was worth every (affordable) penny. They were very patient and made every change we asked, both before and after our wedding. Kevin, and everyone at Pristine Videos has been professional and extremely helpful to us, even though our wedding was seven months ago. On the day of the wedding, Kevin was also great with our photographers, and I believe that our pictures were even better because of him. Pristine Videos has done much more than simply make a DVD (or a memory), but have accomplished separate and individual tasks that I have asked of them. We have friends going through the marriage process now and we always tell them that being able to relive those moments by hearing our vows, laughing at our guests on the dance floor and simply sharing in the day all over again, makes me smile larger than pictures ever will.
My husband and I weren't sure if we wanted to pay for a professional videographer, but after seeing our video/highlights from Pristine Videos, we are both so glad we went ahead and did it! Our video is fantastic, and the editing with our music choices is so much fun to watch. Lisa and Sergio (our videographer) were so professional and very easy to get along with. Sergio and his assistant did not get in the way of the photos or the guests, so it was nice to have a videographer that wasn't too obtrusive during the wedding.
They are the best price in town and offer very reasonable packages!
They were great! I booked them with very short notice and they were still able to come out and shoot our wedding within our budget (less than $500). They did an unedited video for us and they will be the ones to edit it for our one-year anniversary!
We were undecided about spending the money to hire a videographer at all as we were on a tight budget. We were interested in Pristine Videos because of their low price points. I was so excited when we received our final product, as I believe it turned out as good if not better as the videographers I interviewed who were twice the price
Lisa was very responsive to emails and phone calls. Kevin was great to work with on the wedding day. Even though we got just 1 guy, he set up a second camera for the ceremony and ran one on his own as well. The final video came out super fast (after we sent him our music selections) and it was just right. They do a 1st draft of the editing and sends it to you for approval. You can tell them any changes you want and then he sends you a final edit. We loved our first draft, it was exactly what we wanted!
We were VERY happy with them and their services! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!
Pristine Videos is truly amazing. We were so impressed by the end product. Highly recommended.
I was first interested in Pristine Videos because of their low-cost special. But working with Lisa and Kevin has been a delight! They are both very professional and punctual. Lisa would answer any of my questions that I had and Kevin was very professional during my wedding. Pristine Videos worked with me until I got the format and music that I wanted. Our wedding dvd came out beautiful! The only regret that I have is that I didn't do a more expensive and intensive package with them. Thank you again!
Pristine Videos was amazing, they captured our whole day. I felt so comfortable with them that I forgot they were there video taping. Our video turned out perfect as it highlights a little bit of each part of our day. It is not too long or too short. It really turned out perfect. I would recommend Pristine Video to anyone, as I just can't say enough great things about them.
I can't say enough about Pristine Videos, they take care of every client! All budgets, all needs! They shoot the details to make sure you have the right footage to put together something artistic and amazing. We've worked with them before and seen them do their thing many times. Awesome!
I have worked with Pristine Videos on at least 6 different weddings, very easy going team and unobtrusive. They are very popular and very reasonable with pricing. I'll see them again this weekend at a HUGE wedding at the Universal Hilton. Going to be another beautiful day!
Working with Pristine Videos during weddings is great! They are a very professional company and work well with other vendors. I recommend them to any bride and groom looking for the top of the line in videographers.
Kevin and his team are amazing! They are the only Video Company I recomend. We work together all the time and I've never seen a more professional and talented group!

For any Bride and Groom reading this endorsement: I am Rev. Michael and I Officiate at all locations in Orange County. I just had the pleasure of Officiating a Wedding Ceremony at Pacific Edge in Laguna Beach with Kevin of Pristine Videos. Kevin is, without a doubt, one of the best, most flexible, most organized and one of the nicest videographers to work with. I've worked with many videographers and Kevin was on top of and recorded each and every detail. I would be remiss in not telling you to at least call Kevin at Pristine Videos and investigate him and his packages. If you wish to know more, feel free to contact me at ReverendMichael@ReverendMichael.com
We worked with Pristine Videos on a wedding and the staff members were great! They were thoughtful enough to attend our vendor meeting before the wedding, fun enough to join us all on the dance floor during the reception, and professional enough to ensure that all the shots were taken and that the bride and groom were happy. They are wonderful to work with.

One of the most frequent post wedding regrets by couples is that they did not have the wedding filmed. Imagine what it would be like to view a stylized film of your parents' wedding. At Pristine Videos, we realize that the wedding documentary is not just for the new couple, but for your now and future family. A moving, real life memory of one of the most important days of your lives, carefully constructed from countless hours of raw footage and painstaking editing, can be a reminder of where a relationship has been, and the future it holds. Filming in a documentary, cinematic style allows you to relax and enjoy your day, while we capture the memories for you. Video provides memories of texture and sound that still photos can never imitate.
We could not have ask for a better experience working with you guys. The videographers were extremely professional and caught moments that mean the world to us! Luckily
for me, Lisa showed up on the day and I do not know what I would have done with out her. She was there for us from the day we first met all the way through us receiving our final video, even when we weren’t the easiest of customers We love our
video and we will recommend Pristine Videos to everyone we know! Thanks again!
