Had to find a wedding videographer for a family member without having a huge budget- David(runs Grandmother's Video) was available and good to his word from the start. He started filming an hour before the wedding and stayed through the entire night, stayed busy filming pretty much every detail you could imagine without getting in the way. Very polite and fun. The video turned out to be about 2 hours of quality stuff- great looking footage from the aisle to the dance floor. The video toasts were a hit- not only looked good on the dvd but were a lot of fun for everyone to do at the wedding and added to the day. Highly recommend.
Great communication & very easy to work with. Creative and sensitive to the whole family dynamics of a modern wedding. Captured many precious memories! Couldn't have been more pleased with David's attention to details and professionalism.
Thank you so much--but you made my job easy by being such a CHARMING & BEAUTIFUL BRIDE!
Grandmother's Video personnel was very professional in videotaping our wedding. Our special moments were captured in a way that the guests didn't realize a photographer was there. We appreciated the completeness and high quality of his work.
Thank you for taking time to "review" our work.

Our technique is a mesh of experience, ...
Grandmother's Video did an outstanding job with my wedding video. The video was given as a surprise gift by a friend and it was the best present I could have ever imagined! The quality was excellent and viewing it is a wonderful reminder of the happy event!
This videographer shot our wedding and "forgot" his wireless microphone. As a result, he failed to capture the vows, requiring the groom to read his vows at the reception and have them dubbed over. The end result looks like a Japanese movie with the grooms mouth saying something completely different than the words and very bizarre sound quality. We wrote our own vows, and he failed to capture the most important moment of the day. He did give us a $50.00 discount for the error. However, he then seemed to blame us saying that we didn't write on the contract that he needed to bring the microphones, so he forgot. He also told me that he didn't realize it was "that important."
If that were not enough, the quality of the entire video was mediocre at best. In the outdoor light, white colors (e.g. the wedding dress) appear almost light blue and the edges of moving objects (e.g. people) frequently appear blurry. There are weird cuts in the editing.
We thought that we could have some friends of ours edit the video better, so we asked him for the raw footage. He was very agreeable and mailed it to us the next day. When we received it, we were astonished to learn that he does not use digital recording. In 2014, it never occurred to us to ask whether the video would be digital. We received MiniDVs, technology that was new in 1995. The most common viewing device for this is a VHS adapter. We are dusting off our old VHS player that's been in basement storage for years to try and see what is even on the videos.
David showed up to our wedding wearing jeans and lime green tennis shoes. While we appreciate that he worked very hard to get toasts from as many of our guests as possible, we had several complaints that he annoyed people by following them into the parking lot or not taking no for an answer.
David's videos would be find if you are merely wanting some documentation of your big day and are not looking for a particularly high quality video. His video of the reception had no major issues. He's very friendly and certainly appeared to be working hard on the big day. If you're on a tight budget, need a video, don't care whether the video is of particularly high quality, and don't have a friend with a digital camera willing to do it for less, his services will suffice.
All the reviews are true. David was able to blend with the crowd and capture the heart of our wedding. It is the extra touch that we now enjoy the most. David did personal interviews of friends and family which really added to the spirit of the reception. I highly recommend Grandmother`s Video.
Thank you--it was an honor and a joy to "forever capture" you and your beautiful bride, celebrating with so many loving family and friends! Many Happy Anniversaries!!!
Would like to preface this with I hired this vendor last minute and he was super accommodating and making sure everything was set up. Very accessible via email. He acted very professional throughout the day and I barely noticed he was there. Picture quality and sound were both good (not HD but not a huge deal). He is definitely for someone with a lower budget but it was exactly what I expected. Would definitely recommend!
"We got the videos and absolutely love them!! Thank you so much for doing such a wonderful job! If you need any recommendations, please let me know! :) Best, M"
Thanks for having Grandmother's Video Productions be a part of your Wedding Day.
David videotaped my first wedding in 2002, and my second in 2013. Both times, he completely captured the day. He makes sure to get footage of each special moment, and one of my favorite things is having individuals and couples do personal toasts. What wonderful memories! He is always very professional and the quality is excellent. I would highly recommend him.
Ideal Day, Beautiful Bride, Handsome Groom, Cute Pets, Lovely Landscape, Warm

David was very professional and got all the important moments on tape. It seemed like he held that video recorder all night so as not to miss a single thing!
