Lance is an awesome videographer, not only is he super personable and fun to work with, he is also extremely creative and professional. In the days leading up to our wedding he made sure to take note of what we wanted and the style of video we were going for. Then on the wedding day he was prompt and professional in every way. In fact, he did such an amazing job and was so comfortable to be around we (and many of our guests) hardly noticed he was there. Because of this, he was able to get some of the most candid, precious moments of our wedding day. We originally chose Lance based on a friend's recommendation and after reading details on his website about the quality and caliber of equipment that he uses. It was important for us to get great quality in sound and picture, and he definitely did not disappoint! We were even able to get our wedding video on blue-ray, an option we definitely appreciated and took advantage of. This quality, mixed with Lance's creativity was definitely a home run. Honestly, we had a very unique wedding and he captured everything perfectly and we couldn't have asked for more. He went above and beyond. With all that said, if you are looking for a videographer (and you should be) just choose Lance, he's your guy.
We had an awesome reception video put together by Lance and we were SO happy with it. He was amazing to work with and ALOT of fun--I would HIGHLY recommend him!!!
Lance was an amazing videographer! He showed up on time and captured every moment we asked him to. He traveled four hours to get to our wedding and we will be forever grateful for that. We met Lance at a wedding show at the Hyvee event hall and knew we wanted him to be our videograpgher right away. He was the only one who offered Blu-Ray and shot in HD at that time. We had an initial 7 minutes edited video back in one week! And our longer DVD's back in two weeks, with more special editing. We were in love with them. He even posted the short clip up on facebook, so that our friends and family could see. I highly recommend Lance as a videographer fro your wedding! Just imagine in 10 years looking back and watching your wedding video with tears in your eyes and remember, it is WELL worth the money.
Lance did such a great job filming our wedding day. He is very fun to work with, and did a great job working with our photographers. He captured all of the big moments and the little ones I didn't even realize I had missed. I had a hard time deciding whether I wanted a videographer, and am so happy I decided to invest in Lance. He is professional, prompt, and creative. I can't wait to share our full video with our friends and family and watch it with our kids someday.
Harding Videography (Lance) is by far the BEST choice we could have made for our wedding! (and, anyone who is going through the wedding planning process knows - making decisions on this kind of thing can be exhausting).
Let me start from the beginning:
We reviewed dozens of websites & hundreds of videos looking for a videographer for our wedding. We narrowed it down to only two options in DSM, and scheduled interviews with both. Lance ROCKED the interview - you could tell right away that he's passionate about what he does, he enjoys it, he's good at it, and most importantly - I would enjoy hanging out with him for my entire wedding day! (keep in mind - whoever you pick will spend more time with you than almost anyone else will on your wedding day - other than your spouse-to-be!)
During the interview, I mentioned that my fiance & I didn't want to do paper invites - we wanted to do a video! Paper seemed out-of-date and licking envelopes is not my thing. Lance said he'd never done one before, but he would love to try it! I loved that he was enthusiastic and willing to out-of-the-box.
The Invite Video:
It was raining that day and my plan for an outdoor invite was out-the-window. I had no clue what we were going to do (where would you go indoors to shoot an invite video!?). Lance was able to think quickly on his feet & come up with a plan for us that involved mostly indoor shooting. His improv skills are impressive - and that's important because you never know what's going to happen at your wedding. It's nice to be able to count on someone who is optimistic and willing to take on challenges.
Lance shot an AMAZING video for us to send to our friends and family as our invite - in fact, he actually cut two videos for us because he had so much awesome footage! His ability to use rain to his advantage is incredible.
Lance went ABOVE AND BEYOND our expectations for the wedding - he was happy, fun and very professional. He brought a second videographer to help get us the angles that we wanted (thank you Courtney!) as that was one of our requests during the interview - we wanted at least 2 shooters for more angles. He also remembered requests that I had forgotten about! During the interview, I asked him if we could do a transition from outdoor/ceremony to indoor/reception in a specific way of incorporating the party - he didn't forget and made sure we got the shots we needed! We had so much fun with him and I can't stress enough that not only is his product amazing, but you will enjoy spending your wedding day with him!
Lance gave us a teaser video right away so we were able to share everything with our friends ASAP (after it's over you can't wait for photos & video!) It was a stunning video and the perfect thing to hold us over until he sent us our full 6-minute video!
We got the longer video a few weeks after the wedding (less than a month!). I highly recommend watching his videos to see for yourself. His transitions are flawless, his angles were perfect, and he knows how to line the shots up with the music. He has amazing attention to detail. He was everywhere at the right time and I didn't even notice him during the ceremony (he was never in the way - that's also very important!) Choose Lance as your videographer and you won't regret it! His videos speak for themselves.
Lance was amazing to work with! I found him online and lived out of town so only spoke with him over email. From the very beginning I knew lance would be a great fit to our wedding! We just lost the videographer (I thought was the best) and Lance assured me that it was his loss and how excited he was to work with us! It was very easy to communicate with Lance, he responded promptly to ever email and always was available to answer my questions. I finally meet Lance on wedding day he fit in to our wedding party perfect!! He even offered to help me with my hair!! Lance went the extra mile to make sure he was with us for all the special events but yet still stayed out of our way and worked great with our photographers! Our video was amazing highlighting all the special moments. We will treasure it for a lifetime! The case it came in was more than just a fancified cd case! I would HIGHLY recommend Harding photography to anyone wanting an easy going, fun videographer to work with!
Lance is an AMAZING videographer, and I highly recommend hiring him for your wedding! It was probably the best investment on our wedding day. The highlight video and full length video have such amazing video and sound quality. He captured the best moments including ones that we missed on our wedding day. Not only that, but he is a super cool guy. He's the kind of guy you will want to hang out with on the weekends :) He went above and beyond on the wedding day. I was dehydrated and he brought me water throughout formal photos without me even asking anyone. He always asked us what we wanted captured for our video. He's the best!
Harding Videography did an amazing job with our big day! They were very friendly and very professional. Both of our videos we got in our package are outstanding and we are so thankful we have such an amazing thing to keep forever. I would definitely use them again for another occasion.
I met Lance when I was in a close friend's wedding and he was their videographer. I loved the work he did for them and when we were thinking about using one too, I immediately thought of him. He came highly recommended! When I talked with him on the phone the first time to learn about his packages, he was so friendly and answered all my questions without hesitation! He was always quick to email me back whenever I had a question or wanted to keep him in the loop. He welcomed our song suggestions for the highlight video and incorporated them which turned out awesome! His response time after the wedding day was very reasonable and we have heard nothing but great things from our guests who have watched our highlight video so far. On our wedding day, he worked really well with our photographers and was just overall awesome!! I'm so glad we chose Lance, you won't be disappointed!!
Lance was OUTSTANDING. We hired him to film our wedding and we couldn't be happier with the outcome! Him and his assistant really captured the most amazing moments of our wedding. Our highlight video is SO good I literally watch it like 5 times a week!!! I would recommend Harding Videography to anyone looking for filming services!!! Simply AMAZING!!!!!!!!!
Lance Harding was recommended to us through our photographer and we are very glad we chose him to be the videographer for our wedding! Throughout the whole wedding planning process and on the wedding day, we felt that Lance put my husband and I first. He had phenomenal costumer service and I always felt well-informed about what we would be receiving following the wedding day. He had great communication through emailing and over the phone. I always felt I could ask him any questions or share concerns I had.
On the day of the wedding I felt very comfortable with Lance and his assistant, Cortney. They let me know from the start of the day that they were there for me and to let them know any concerns or worries I had. Throughout the day, I never felt like they were in the way. I was able to focus on what was important - my HUSBAND! They did an awesome job getting ALL the footage and (for lack of better words) staying out of the way ; )
We were very pleased with the video we received from Lance just 3 weeks after the wedding! It was very fast and the video is great! He asked my suggestions on music and even made a few minor adjustments I asked for after viewing the video.
We HIGHLY recommend Lance Harding Videography for your wedding! He did a wonderful job, has great prices, and is very easy to work with!
Lance was so great to work with! He's very relaxed, fun, easy going, and definitely open to doing what the bride and groom want. We had such an awesome experience working with him.
We received a message from him that our cameo was available for online viewing one week after our wedding. Talk about efficient! We also received our HD Blu Ray DVD wedding video, full version and it was top notch! Both quality and sound were great! We were pleased to have the opportunity to work with Lance and would highly recommend his work to any bride and groom looking for Videography!

Wow! Lance is hands down the number one videographer in Iowa. You must choose him. He gets 5 starts on service and quality. He is so willing to help you and he captured BEAUTIFUL video of our wedding. I am going to cherish the moments from our video forever. I HIGHLY recommend you hire Lance because you will be able to relive your wedding over and over for years to come.
We had such a fun day and were so glad to have Lance capture it all on video. Originally, I didn't care about having a video but after seeing the work he did at my friend's wedding I knew I needed to have him! I was very late in the game and luckily he had an open weekend. He was very prompt at responding to my e-mails and requests. He was a great addition to my wedding "team" and I would HIGHLY encourage anyone thinking about getting a videographer to A. DO IT and B. have Lance be your guy!!!
I have watched the highlight video countless times and the full video (which only took a few weeks to get!) has been so amazing to watch. They are very high quality and I can't wait to show them off!
THANKS AGAIN, LANCE!!!
My new husband and I could not be happier with the work that Lance did for us! We got both pictures and videos done and they are all absolutely stunning. He worked with us on the budget and made sure to ease our minds any time we had questions or concerns. Both Lance and the photographer that he hired for extra help turned up on time and got our video edited up and posted very quickly. Highly recommend and well worth every penny!
I came across Lance's website during a random Google search for area wedding videographers and I am so glad I did. I wanted a specific style and "look" to our wedding video and I knew Lance was it as soon as I saw his demos. He was amazingly easy to work with throughout the entire process and made a wonderful highlight video for us. Everyone who sees it comments that it is the best they have ever seen and that it made them feel like they were right there with us. He did a great job of capturing the moments and the emotions of our day without being intrusive. In fact, many people commented after seeing our video that they hadn't even realized we had a videographer there! I highly recommend Harding Videography for your special day.
Super videographer! Responsive, efficient, and professional. Lance went the extra mile to make our dream wedding videos that will help us relive our special day forever! His work for us was high quality and artful, and a great value. He was so pleasant yet focused in every interaction and flexible, too, giving us exactly what we wanted! Infinitely pleased that we chose Harding Videography!
Lance Harding is one of a kind. I have never encountered anyone more qualified than he to produce such quality video. It is very apparent that Lance loves his profession as well as the people he is working with. He was fun and easy to be around, and in fact felt very much a part of the family. Lance made sure he knew exactly what we expected and we got that and much more. Our snapshot video was unique, fun, and memorable. It allowed for our out of town guests who were unable to make it to our wedding feel like they were actually there without missing a beat. This is a video we will forever keep in the family for generations to see.
We hired Harding Videography to film our big day based on several recommendations from our friends. My wife and I were both blown away by the experience, as well as the finished product. Lance was very professional yet personable. He had a firm grasp on what we were expecting, as well as contributing great ideas that we had not thought of. He had no problem handling a few minor last minute changes on our part, as well as accommodating input from our friends and family. A true "roll with the punches" performance on his part, which kept everyone's stress levels down while giving us all what we wanted. At the end of it all, I'd say that we got more than we bargained for, from the video to the cost. I would recommend him to anyone looking to preserve in eternity, that special once in a lifetime day. What a great experience, and our families were thrilled with their copies as well. It doesn't get any better than this, and five years later, I'm still amazed by his talent and ability! If you're in the market for quality, edited, video footage of your wedding day, then Harding Videography is the ONLY service to consider! Thanks again!!
Knowing Lance personally, there was never a doubt that I was going to utilize Harding Videography for my own wedding. Having watched his company grow from infancy, I witnessed firsthand Lance's unwavering drive for perfection in each and every project of his, no matter the client. Besides his stellar body of work, Lance always adds a measure of thoughtfulness, unique to each his clients, that I know the customers love (I know I did). He is devoted to going above and beyond the industry standards, both in customer service and quality of his products, using top of the line technology and tricks of the trade. I would recommend Harding Videography to any and all. He is a great friend and is superbly excellent at what he does!
