The Cinematic Moment
Hands down the best videographer in the Tampa Bay area ! There is no competition here ! Simply unbelievable. It was hard to find someone who would stay all day and not charge by hour and hopefully not stand in a corner all night long. He exceeded our expectations !! They literally captured every moment ( including a jumping dolphin in the ocean and our reactions) There was not one time when I saw them standing still. They made such an impression on my guests that everyone couldn't wait to see this video. The video turned out AMAZING. It was beautiful and so well put together with the song selections. Made everyone cry who watched it. I would recommend The Cinematic Moment over and over again for any and every occasion...Especially for the best day of your life.

WOW!!! Thanks Nicole, I am so glad we could work together. What an incredible day!!! Congrats to both of you!
Our wedding video was absolutely everything we could have imagined and working with The Cinematic Moment was a dream! Ryan Detzel was was kind, calm, and extremely flexible on the day of our wedding. He arrived on site before me and left after me the day of our wedding, unlike any other vendor; he captured EVERY moment! The team of videographers worked hard to get tons of valuable footage for our wedding video and they used great equipment which produced fantastic shots. Ryan was extremely creative with our video AND even took the stress out of selecting songs for our video because he was able to recognize what we would love based on his experience with us as a couple. I was actually very busy the months before and after our wedding and he helped to alleviate stress with the video by helping us to select the PERFECT songs for our video. Thank you SOOOOO much Ryan!
Most importantly, Ryan's video packages are so much more competitively priced which sealed the DEAL for me! Ryan's prices were better than ANY other companies I looked at in Bradenton, Tampa and Sarasota. My video was very important to me and I spent A LOT of time comparing videographers. I called more than 15 videographers and ALL of them gave me a starting price of $3,000 for LESS time, less people, and less equipment. Ladies, do your research and make sure you meet your videographer! It's worth your time to inquire about The Cinematic Moment's packages!

Thank you Danielle! It was such a pleasure working with you. I know we started planning almost two years ago, it's amazing to see the end result!!! What a beautiful wedding... congrats to you and Kyle!
I truly can't say enough about our wedding video. Before the day of the wedding, Ryan was very responsive in working with us to make sure our package was tailored to our needs. On the day of the wedding, he and his team captured all the right moments and we hardly noticed them doing so. He got there first thing in the morning and stayed until the last guest left. I really feel like he intuitively figured out our family dynamics and the little things that makes us 'us' and that showed in our video. Because of that, the video never feels stiff but flows beautifully. The stylistic devices he incorporated are just incredible. All this he did at an amazing value. I am so grateful to have such an incredible video that truly reflects our incredible day!

Thank you so much Michael Ann! What a truly incredible compliment, I am so happy I was the one you choose to tell your story!!! ~Ryan
When I started all the plans for our wedding, I honestly didn't think we would hire a videographer. I thought that we could have a friend or familly member video a little to catch the important parts of the day. After hiring a coordinator, Jamie Billig, she brought up the idea up to me a few times. She sent me the link to Cinematic Moment, and I fell in love with Ryan's work. I was watching videos of others getting married and caught myself tearing up on more than one occasion for people I didn't even know. The video captured the entire day's events so well, I felt like I was there. Everytime one of my friends came over, I would show them my favorite video and express the need for a videographer!!
With all of my persuading, I got my now husband on board to hire Ryan to video our big day! Now that our video is complete, he is VERY HAPPY that we did!! You get so caught up in everything that is going on around you the day of that it is easy to miss out on little details that as a bride you put so much time and work into.
Ryan is so easy to work with and so helpful. As a constant worrier, I couldn't decide which songs to pick out for our video. I ended up sending him a list, and he was able to determine which songs would flow together best. He is incredibly talented, and I receive compliments almost daily on how amazing our video is!
To those of you who are watching your budget, this is one place to spend a little extra. There is no better way to capture your entire day than with such a unique video that you will watch over and over again. I have honestly lost count of the number of times that I have watched our video.
This is a link to watch our video! Hope you enjoy!!

Nothing makes me happier than when the bride loves the video!!! Thank you so much for sharing this review, your video is one-of-a-kind for sure!!! So glad we got to work together!!!
When I first saw Ryan's wedding videos on his site- I cried, and I normally do NOT cry at this sort of thing. I knew I had to hire him as my wedding videographer. He is not just a videographer, but a cinematographer. If you do not know the difference, go to his website!! I had people watching his videos before I even hired him, and not just once- but over and over. Ryan was a pleasure to talk with, work with, and we didn't have to do anything- he took care of it all. During the wedding ceremony and reception I barely even noticed he was around, which astonished me- I pictured having a videographer follow you around would be much like being on reality t.v. He was very unobtrusive yet still managed to get some amazing footage. When I received my wedding video- not even ten days after my wedding was over, I could not believe the shots that he included. Without knowing my family dynamic or situation, he included the most memorable and touching moments. He picked a song I had never heard of to use, and it was perfect. After sharing my video with friends and family, I've had people tell me that they watched it over and over, cried, and even shared it with people who are complete strangers to me. His work is phenomenal. Ryan has a true passion for what he does! I would recommend him to ANYONE! He doesn't only do weddings, and travels all over the world to work!
Our video was everything we wanted and more, We are so thankful to Ryan at what an amazing job he did. He captured our perfect day wonderfully. We flew him out to NY, and worked so fast to get our finished video back. We recommend his work to everyone. :)
Thanks to Ryan, I have an amazing video to last a lifetime of one of my most memorable moments of my life. The video became a hit for everyone to watch and brought tears as Ryan captured all the heart wrenching moments. I did my research well as I wanted the best quality as well as fitting into my budget. You would think it would be hard since I live in Indiana and was planning a Florida destination wedding. His website and quick response made it obvious he was the best around. To top it off, Ryan is very professional and a really nice guy. I highly recommend The Cinematic Moment for videography of any sort, he did capture our Baptism the evening before the wedding!!
We found Ryan a couple of weeks before the wedding. We weren't sure if we really wanted a video, but after seeing Ryan's video and what great work he did, we decided to hire Ryan.
He was with me as I was getting ready and stayed till the end of the night.
He posted the video very quickly and sent us our DVD right away.
We have gotten many compliments on the video and how nice Ryan was to everyone.
