Weddings By Austin
Austin was a delight to work with. His professionalism, humor, and experience made it easy to be ourselves in front of the camera and gave me and my husband complete confidence that the most important day of our lives would be captured perfectly. When we received the video Austin gave us more then we expected and made the video better then we both could imagine. We re-experience that night everytime we watch the movie but the best part is that we are not afraid to share our video with others because it is fun, just the right length and makes people feel like they were there that night. Everyone we have shown the video to has said they have never seen a better wedding video. The truth is I didn't really want a wedding video BUT...Austin is the best thing we spent money on. Those moments can't be experienced through pictures and every one that couldn't make it (like future children or the bride and groom who are too busy to experience it ;)) can feel the full essence of the night. So over all Austin is the only choice you have!!!!
Austin was respectful, interactive, and creative.
My husband and I met Austin through a mutual friend at a party one night right around the time we started planning our wedding. It was almost fate that this fabulous videographer fell into our lap. At the time, Austin did not have much material to show us from previous weddings which made me a little nervous and skeptical, but my husband liked the video he showed us and trusted he would do a good job. The video often takes a long time to receive after the wedding (typically 6 months) and the waiting and anticipation almost killed me!
When the video was finally ready, Austin went out of his way, on Easter Sunday nonetheless, to hand deliver 5 beautifully wrapped DVDs. (We were able to give them as gifts to our parents and my grandpa who wasn't able to be there due to poor health. So thoughtful!) My husband and I watched the DVD with our whole family that day and absolutely LOVED it! Everyone was laughing and crying and loved being able to relive that very special day. And we didn't just love the DVD because it was ours; Austin completely exceeded our expectations. Everyone who has since watched it, has said that this is the best wedding DVD they have ever seen because of Austin's beautiful work. (And they were not just saying that to be nice.) Austin's wedding videos are not your typical lame wedding videos that no one wants to watch. Austin is so creative, thoughtful and forward thinking. It's almost like watching a movie or really well done documentary. He also spent a lot of time on editing which is very evident.
I did think the cover looked a little cheesy, so don't judge a book by it's cover. The proof is in the pudding and this pudding is amazing! I would HIGHLY recommend Weddings by Austin to anyone who is considering making a video for their wedding.
What can I say? Weddings by Austin blew me away! I did a lot of research for our wedding videographer and I found a lot of quality companies in the LA area. However, most of them fit the same standard template. Weddings by Austin was totally different. The video told a story...our wedding story! It was such a personalized video that was able to capture the spirit of OUR celebration. Just like everyone says, weddings fly by for the bride and groom. The video allowed us to relive the night and catch things that we missed! We've watched the video countless times, and it continues to put a huge smile on our face :D And every person that we have shown the video to has said, "Wow! That's the best wedding video I've ever seen!!" I seriously can't say enough about Weddings by Austin and the awesome video that we now have! If you want a truly personalized wedding video that you enjoy watching and are proud to show your friends and family, book Weddings by Austin ASAP!!!!
Wedding videography can be the toughest part of planning a wedding. I have seen many wedding videos which is like watching a bad three-hour Kevin Costner movie, where the butter popcorn and credits are the only highlights. Austin was fully aware of my concerns and assured me, mine would be different and people would want to see this movie over and over. He was absolutely right! To say that he captured the moment would be an understatement of Austin's creativity and artistic abilities. He captured real things that truly matter, love and alot of laughter, personality and tons of character, and above all the dolphin dive and TUCKER!!!! With all those moments rolled into one it's no wonder people are talking about the video of the year. Austin is a pleasure to work with and will have audiences of all ages giving two thumbs up!

The old days of watching someone’s wedding video from a “Professional” which looks like a 3 hour long tripod video is long gone. My wife and I had the opportunity to have our big day filmed by Austin and we love it. The look we get at home when we ask our friends “hey have you guys seen our wedding video” is priceless, smiles turn into faces of thoughts “how do we get out of this… we just got here” and not even 2 minutes into the video their eyes are glued. Austin seemed to have caught our personalities in our video and really made it OURS. Thanks Austin for the fantastically creative video that we will be able to share for many many moons to come.

The day I received my video from Weddings by Austin was the second happiest day of my life! As I sat and watched the video with my husband and family, tears of joy and happiness ran down most of our faces. I felt as if I was reliving that very special day with all my friends and family, as well as watching the priceless unseen footage I missed during that very busy day! I was able to see the special candid moments of my beloved grandparents, the laughter of my bridesmaids as we waited in the church, and the crazy dance party that we had at the reception. Austin truly captured EVERYTHING I could have ever wanted for my video. His artistic style of putting together the footage was truly breath taking as we watched the video unfold before our very eyes.
Austin was completely professional and invested the time to get to know my husband and me before big day. We told him the few special moments and people we for sure wanted included in the video, and yes he delivered! He was very alert, active, and friendly throughout the entire day. It felt great knowing that I did not have to worry about his service; he was well prepared and extremely organized. I would highly recommend Weddings by Austin to anyone that wanted to remember the most amazing day of their life! Thank you Austin!
