Do yourself a favor and splurge on a videographer!
I was on the fence between Cana and Rain Studios for my wedding videographer. Both were great choices per my wedding planners, and their samples were equally amazing. The reason I ended up choosing Rain was that they incorporate sound into the video. I wanted to capture the vows and toasts. We also needed the video done within 6 weeks of our wedding in order to show it at home at our local reception.
We were amazed by our video, speechless. I've watched it so much, I almost have it memorized. The moments he captured, some of them I didn't even remember or witness on that day, and now have documented forever. The music to the trailer was a bit cinematic and suspenseful, but then the "epic movie" was magic. My parents cried it was so moving.
We are extremely happy with Rain and could not have asked for a more professional team and a more perfect day. The video will be one you will want to show your kids (and pretty much everyone else).
I think you get what you pay for with videographers, you are paying for art. And while the cost is a bit higher than other videographers (or for your brother who can just set a camera up in the aisle), the wedding day goes by too fast and you will lose all of those moments in the flash.
Where do i begin with Rain studios? Katherine was the sweetest videographer ever!! Her and Josh were such an amazing pair! I was so excited to have hired a videographer on our wedding day because we will relive that day over and over thru video. We were on the fence about hiring one but once we met with them our decision was easy. They are so professional and will work so great with your photographer! Thank you so much for making my big day so special!
Josh is a true artist. The videos bring so much emotion and make the small moments, memories, and details feel alive and so real and raw. Extremely responsive, positive, and helpful. On the wedding day they were almost invisible but captured the perfect moments. His wife is a sweetheart and they both make you feel confident. Highly recommend this epic videographer.
I worked with Josh and Rain Studios for my May 2010 wedding in San Luis Obispo.
Josh and his team were an absolute dream the day of the wedding. I had so much fun working with them throughout the day and felt like I was in the best/most profesional hands!
I recently received my wedding video trailer from Josh and is AMAZING! It is one of the best wedding trailers that I have ever seen! Film and editing is truly an art for Josh!
Josh also sent me all of the raw video footage from the day along with still photos that he had also taken.
Josh's video is a gift that my husband and i would cherish forever, it is truly priceless!
Thank you Josh for everything! We are so thankful!
I have only seen the trailer so far, but it blew me away! The moments that were captured and all of the emotion and excited surrounding the wedding came to life in the trailer. My experience with Josh at Rain-Studios was wonderful. He was very easy to talk to and understood exactly what I wanted. He wanted to make us happy and can do anything! He offers some very reasonable package deals and is flexible in making a package to include exactly what one wants. His pricing was very competitive but I feel also offered the most value. My photographer was skeptical about working with a videographer he did not know b/c of experiences with others in the past, but was amazed at how professional Josh and his assistant were and how they did not get in the way of anything. I can't wait to see the rest of the video! Thanks Rain-Studios for catching some special moments on camera for us.
