I contacted Bellagala for some information about their services, and booked a DJ with them. After speaking with Samantha, she asked what other services we might need and I said I was still looking for a videographer. She suggested Dan and we couldn't be happier that she did! Right away Dan was amazing, offering suggestions for the schedule of the day and what might work best in the video. The day of he was incredibly fun to work with, was friendly, easy going, and patient, despite us wanting to do outdoor pictures and videos in the 10 degree January weather! He was so flexible, and caught everything we asked for and more. The video itself turned out better than we could have dreamed. We must have watched 50 different wedding videos when trying to decide on a videographer, and we were still blown away by ours. The quality, editing, creativity, and the fact that the video really told the story of the day in such a perfect way, was amazing. We could not recommend Dan and Bellagala more!
We were lucky enough to have Michael Zvonar and his wife Becky as videographers during our wedding. Prior to the wedding they set up a meeting to see what we liked/disliked about wedding videos we have seen and we really enjoyed meeting with them. They were super fun to hang out with the day of the wedding and made us feel really comfortable the entire day. To the quality of the videos they are truly amazing and the video short the Michael puts together was our favorite thing to remember the big day. We have watched the 8min video short maybe 30 times in the 5 weeks since we got it and all of our friends and family love it. Michael does an excellent job setting the video to music and putting in thoughtful clips of video throughout the day. We definitely highly recommend Michael and Becky. Michael has a uniquely artistic touch to his videos and I would encourage watching some of his video shorts if you are on the fence about getting a videographer for your wedding.
We were lucky enough to have Dan with Bellagala capture our wedding day and we could not be happier. On the day of, Dan was fun, patient and made both my husband and I feel so relaxed. We could tell right away when we met Dan that he had a passion for this industry and it truly showed as he filmed our wedding day. He made us feel so special and well taken care of. He even comforted me as I was getting emotional seeing my dad and reading the letter my husband wrote to me - something that was not part of his job by any means. He definitely went above and beyond the entire day and made us feel like royalty. I could not recommend Dan more!
We would recommend Bella Gala 100%. We LOVED everything about our day and our vendors were incredible...our videographer was great! I felt we had the opportunity to truly express what we wanted!
Great! So nice! Our video is AWESOME. I couldn't imagine it being better. I would recommend Bellagala to anyone!
Our videographer made us comfortable right away and we knew that we wanted him to film our day from the moment we met him!
Our videographer Todd was awesome! I felt we had the opportunity to truly express what we wanted. The day went great!
They were friendly and funny and so easy to be around! We met with him and absolutely loved him! The day of our wedding he did an amazing job making himself almost invisible. My husband was pretty skeptical and apprehensive about having someone in his face all day with a video camera, but after the wedding his comment was "it was almost like they weren't even there". They were so good about being discrete and made us feel so comfortable!! We loved them and would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone!
So nice! We absolutely loved our Videographer. Ben was such an easy going person to work with, and we trusted everything that he was doing. We are very blessed to have had him as our videographer. He really helped us feel relaxed and comfortable the day of the wedding, and also in our consultation prior.
The Bellagala profile allowed me to really explain what I was hoping to see in the final product of the video. Todd was also available to chat on the phone and answer any additional questions I had. The video team blended in well with the guests but were always filming. I'm looking forward to seeing what they were able to capture to re-live my favorite day!
Our videographer was so awesome! When we had our final consultation before the wedding, he told me not to worry, that he had everything taken care of and enjoy everything. And he sure did have everything taken care of! He's so easy to get along with, and all my bridal party told me how nice he was. He got great shots, and I absolutely LOVE my highlight video. It helps me relive our big day, and see some things I missed. I've had so many people tell me how great the video is, and I was so excited about how soon we got it! I would for sure recommend him to anyone, and if I had to do it all over I'd still pick Bellagala hands down as our wedding videographer .
Never thought I'd book a videographer until I contacted Bellagala. Todd was wonderful. I barely noticed him at times. I can't wait to see how it turned out!
We worked with Michael Z, and I wish I could give him more stars! Our video turned out even more amazing then I had ever imagined! I would recommend him to anyone and everyone!!
Good photographers for the moneyReviewed on 12/01/2015 Virginia K
I haven't seen any of the photos yet, so please keep in mind that my ratings are based on how I felt about their services on the wedding day. I chose the lowest/cheapest level of photography, as that's what we could afford. It came with 10 hours of shooting and an 2 shooters. They were very pleasant, unobtrusive and creative. They came up with some awesome shots that I just can't wait to see! I would absolutely recommend Bellagala for wedding photography, even their lowest level of photographers - they are absolute professionals! The only negative comment I have at all is that the assistant/second shooter was dressed very shabbily, for a wedding. I realize they need to be comfortable, but I felt like she was headed to Woodstock. That really didn't impact the wedding at all, but I just wanted to mention it, in case someone really wanted their photographers to be dressed up (to blend in more/go with their wedding theme or feeling).
Bellagala VideographerReviewed on 10/20/2015 Maria M
We worked with Luke and he did such a great job!! You can tell he loves what he does! He was very discreet and at times I forgot he was there which, in my opinion, that is how the videographer should be. We cannot wait to see how our video turned out!!
My husband and I believe that Luke was quite professional! He answered all of our questions along the way. Luke is prompt and thorough. He is the top of the line professional! Even on the wedding day, he went with the flow and understood the layout of the church and yard where we would be taking pictures and he would be taking footage. Luke is also a very kind person. He was quite pleasant to work with. We highly recommend him and are confident that he will do an exceptional job on your wedding footage! Emily
Exceptional! Patrick is a rock star!Reviewed on 9/22/2015 Madeline J
I would recommend Bellagala to anyone. Just shy of 2 weeks before the wedding, our photographer left our photography company (not Bellagala) and we were assigned to an outside contracted photographer. We had a bad feeling about the whole situation, and decided to hire on a videographer just to ensure our wedding was captured. This was BY FAR the best decision we made throughout our wedding planning process. Bellagala will not be your most affordable option for videography. Regardless, the price is well worth it! They hire exceptional people to shoot weddings and the customer service is amazing. Our videographer was Patrick, with a second shooter named Elliot. They went absolutely above and beyond our expectations!! Patrick made a huge effort to get to know us (though our wedding was only a week away once we met) and by the end of our wedding we felt like we were saying goodbye to a friend! We still haven't seen the videos, but we know they are going to be amazing.
last-minute win!Reviewed on 9/20/2015 Andrea F
We had other services booked with bellagala, and when my husband's grandparents suddenly couldn't make it due to health reasons 10 days before the wedding, bellagala came through. I called just to see if there was even availability and they had three individuals to choose from. Less than a day later, contracts were signed and we had been contacted by our videographer. The day of, Greg was great to work with, very professional. We are so pleased with the quality of the work and so happy to have it so we can share with extended family. Greg even sent us a disc of our music after we requested since we had some unique selections.
We paid for the longest videography package (10+ hours). What we received is a terrible quality DVD of our wedding day, with cut-off heads during the ceremony and NO recording of our reception. They chose not to record our first dance, all other dancers or toasts. Terrible vendors, I tell all of my friends to avoid Bellagala.

We chose Adam as our videographer, very nice and professional. He called several times leading up to the wedding to make sure we were all on the same page. We are excited to see the final video!
Perfect videographerReviewed on 3/04/2014 Joy
Absolutely love my ceremony video ! HDquality great equipment lava mic etc great editors!
Horrible choice for videographerReviewed on 1/23/2014 Alanna T
I have nothing nice to say about this company or videographer. After hiring the company and choosing a videographer, I was contacted a couple weeks after paying the initial $500 deposit because that videographer wasn't available due to the Christmas season. They apologized and said I could choose a different videographer, and then offered me one free hour of service that I would add on to the service I already paid for. Ok, thanks. A couple weeks later, I received yet ANOTHER call that the second videographer I chose would not be available because of the Christmas season. I was left with only one option: Todd. When they assigned me to him, he contacted me only ONCE in two months, and never responded to any of my emails. He contacted me the day before my wedding to ask where to be and when. After the wedding, he never said anything as a follow-up. So unprofessional! As a bride, especially, I do not like last-minute plans, especially as I'm busy running around, doing a thousand other tasks the day before my wedding. I did not appreciate his carelessness, lack of communication, or lack of follow-up. I felt I was deserving of a discount, at LEAST, for such poor customer service. Nearly $2000 is significantly overpriced! I have no idea how my video will turn out, as I still haven't heard from him or know when or where he will send it, so that will be my final judgment. As of now, however, I am sorely unimpressed.
VideographerReviewed on 1/18/2014 Michelle V
Great job being behind the scenes. Did not even talk to him
VideographyReviewed on 9/24/2013 Amy
I ended up booking videography really late in my wedding planning process and was very excited Bellagala still had some openings. Adam called me the week of the wedding to go over all the details and he was very easy to work with. The best part about them was that you hardly noticed them at the wedding and ceremony. They got the job done without being the center of attention, which was really nice. I can't comment on the actual video yet as we have not gotten it back yet, but i have no doubt that it will be excellent
great price, videography needed for all weddings!Reviewed on 9/29/2012 Lisa D
We used Bellagala for our videographer as well, and we could not have been happier. I am so glad we decided to do video, and the price was so right - for 6 hours! Greg T was our videographer and he was so great, he worked well with our photographer, and you didn't even know he was filming at times! It is so worth having a video of your wedding day so you can "re-live" every significant moment of the day. Bellagala was able to provide us with this at a price we could afford compared to most videographers.

Stories. We love stories and believe that every couple has a unique one to capture. Our team is originally from chilly Minneapolis but spent time out in Los Angeles, CA working in the short film production industry. As our hearts called us home we recognized that our love for storytelling couldn't be left with the warm weather out in LA. With our feet firmly planted in the snow, we chose to open a production company and focus our sights on wedding videography with our narrative twist. Long story short, we have never looked back and wouldn't trade our jobs for anything in the world.
