we have had the worst experience ever with 4500 films. we hired a photographer and videographer through him for our wedding. While video was good to average for the price, the main issues is his professionalism specially regarding the photographer he provided as part of the package. we paid about $3000 for the package. He assured us that he is going give us a good photographer and as part of the deal 4500 would not have to process any of the photos as i am a photographer myself and I can do it myself better than anyone. Ont the first night, during the first program, I learnt that the photographer does not even know about how to use ISO!!!!! all photos were grainy and taken with 3200 ISO!!! on a Canon t5!!! (low end camera). Next day the photographer from 4500 brought a canon 5D mark III from a friend. Mid program he did not have batteries for his flash (did not tell anyone). i noticed it and asked a friend to give him some. then 4500 provided the photos about 8 weeks later. i did not realize how unfortunate we could be. as bad the lighting were in the pictures, ~90% of the pictures were OUT OF FOCUS. I reached out to 4500 films, told them that i cant fix out of focus photos. I told them that my wife is crying (she Paid the videography and photography costs herself, not her parents). I told him if he has any honor he should return the photography money. 4500 in return kept on telling/lying to me that its my fault that i cant fix these OUT oF focus photos. he said he is going to get the photographer to fix it for us. He stopped responding to our calls at some point. The wedding was on July 2016, and now its July 2017. He ruined our wedding photos because of greed. probably went out and got the cheapest amateur he could find so that he can most of the package money to himself. after this experience i even opened my own website : sartazkhan.photography you guys will be amazed that 4500 had the audacity to lie to my face even after seeing my portfolio.
If you're unsure about getting a videographer for your wedding, don't question it, just DO IT. And while I'm at it... do it with 4500 films! Mel was so great to work with. He has a very laid back and calm demeanor which I really appreciated. He was super easy to work with and literally told me "the bride gets what the bride wants" when I was asking about contract hours. I don't know what could make a bride happier. I was looking for a less expensive videographer but didn't want to compromise on the quality because all you have left of your big day are the pictures and the video. I'm so glad I found Mel. All of his videos are so well done that they make me cry, I think I've watched my teaser video a million times while waiting for the final. If you're looking for a fairly priced AWESOME videographer, Mel is your guy. I feel like he should charge more because his videos are right up there with the best of them, so you better book before he realizes his worth! ;) I also got a photobooth through Mel and it was the coolest! Open air so I got to use any back drop I wanted, also had the option of a green screen so I could CREATE any background I wanted. So awesome. He emailed me all of the photos a couple days after the wedding. Unlimited prints, any style of print, and can add a custom design on the print like "Mr. and Mrs Boyer" Overall, awesome experience with 4500 films.
Mel was so great to work with! Very professional and super nice guy. He had us redo a few things (i.e. did the sparkler exit twice) to make sure that he got the shot which I really appreciated! He seemed to always be right there capturing the moment, without being too much in-your-face. He used a drone for some shots outdoors which was so cool! One of our guests (whom I am a bridesmaid for next year) left the wedding with his business card because she was so impressed with him; and I'm looking forward to hopefully working with Mel again. Haven't seen the video yet, and am so anxious to receive it! Would definitely recommend 4500 Films. Thanks Mel!
Mel is AMAZING!!! His work was beyond stunning and he made our wedding day so special! He showed up got right to work, he knows his stuff and has the best equipment! All the other vendors and guests complimented him the whole time! I recommend the drone as well, it is a game changer, and well worth the money! We got a preview, then our video pretty quickly, he is professional and very very fun to work with! I would recommend Mel to everyone I know, your wedding is one of the most important days ever and he captures it so you have it for a lifetime! His prices are beyond reasonable for the quality of his work! As a bride, I can tell you the photos and videos are the most important part of the wedding!! I was completely blown away by our wedding video, thank you so much Mel for making it possible to live that day over for the rest of my life!
4500 Films is AWESOME! Mel is a great videographer! He always knew exactly who I was every time I called him and he always got back to me promptly. He goes above and beyond to make a beautiful video with such creative detail. He is very thoughtful and he brought to focus such special moments on our wedding day. Thank you Mel for creating a beautiful video we will cherish forever! Hire Mel!!
Mel is absolutely amazing. He was so kind & an absolute blast at the wedding. Mel and his partner made sure to capture every sweet moment of our day. Let me say this... a lot of brides consider not having videography... yall.. it's a must! And 4500 films is for sure the way to go! They have captured something so precious to us. Something to that will allow us to relive that amazing day over and over. We loved working with them and would recommend them to any bride & groom seeking videography!
Mel did a wonderful job capturing our special day. He was extremely professional throughout the whole process and went above and beyond. Our video highlight came out beautifully!
Mel is awesome. My husband hates pictures and was not thrilled at all with photographs but loved Mel, which says a lot. I'm so excited to see what he captured - I know it will be amazing. He knows his stuff. He was running around capturing everything from the second he got there. I'm not sure he ever stopped. I'm so glad I came across him. He also did a friend's wedding a few months back and they were very pleased with him. His only concern during the day was us having an enjoyable day and capturing it as best he could. He kept telling me to relax and laughing with us. I would definitely recommend him.
We used 4500films for our wedding July 9th, I can't express how much his work meant to us when we watched our video. He caught wonderful highlights and sincerely caught everything. Left me and my husband speechless. Thanks a lot!
Mel and his assistant both have been absolutely amazing! Mel has been so helpful through the whole process, making both of us feel so comfortable and happy with their services. We have had a few bumps in the road and Mel has been nothing but understanding and able to work with us through everything without any hesitation. At the wedding we almost forgot we had a videographer because he was so discreet and out of the way the entire time... the photobooth was another HUGE hit at our wedding. Everyone loved it and had so much fun! Thanks for everything Mel, I would recommend your services to anyone and everyone!
We love our wedding video! We were pleased with Mel's selection of clips, angles, and music. We are glad we selected 4500 Films to film our wedding and are happy to have our wedding well-documented. The highlight video was especially enjoyable!
4500films provided the best experience on our wedding day! Mel and his team are very professional, prompt, and were able to capture the most precious moments from of the best day of our lives. I would highly recommend 4500films if you want a company that goes over and beyond and also provides exceptional service!
Mel was such a pleasure to work with. He captured our wedding day with amazing quality and most of the time we didn't even know he was there. The drone shots of our venue and first look made the video even better than we could have imagined. He surprised us by adding clips with our immediate family members giving us well wishes at the end of our wedding video. I watch the wedding trailer once a week and cry every time I watch it. I was undecided on hiring a videographer for our wedding but I'm so glad I decided to use Mel. We are able to relive our wedding day thanks to Mel's wonderful skills. We highly recommend 4500films for your wedding video!
Look No Further!!!Reviewed on 10/17/2015 Inkah B
If you need a videographer look no further!! He is absolutely incredible, and he knows his stuff. He showed up right on time, wasn't intrusive at all. He started in my bridal suite and captured every moment. He set it up for my first look with my father, and it was so beautiful. He has incredible attention to detail and didn't miss anything. We went outside about half way through the ceremony for outside shots and once he was finished he showed us a piece of the footage and I started crying. If you want someone that will really capture your wedding day and make it something truly memorable you must hire Mel! You will not be disappointed.
