Two months before our wedding, I decided that I wanted to have a videographer to capture our wedding day. I already had an amazing photographer booked, but I wanted to be able to relive the moments that would go by far too quickly. I was worrie...
d I would not find anyone in that short of time that would meet the expectations of what I wanted to have captured and be within our budget, but I figured I would give it a shot. Like anyone who looks for a recommendation, I went onto the wedding websites to review ratings for different videographers. The first company I called I felt was extremely overpriced for the packages they were offering, so I didn’t even consider them. The second, and final call I made, was to Ambiance Video Productions Inc. When I got on the phone with Mike, the conversation flowed so nicely that I felt like we had known each other for years. He was extremely easy to talk to, and knew exactly what it was that I wanted to capture. He answered every question I had (I was a nervous bride, so I had a lot of questions), and was extremely accommodating; I knew that he was the guy for us. I met Mike the day of our wedding. While he was not available to stay and shoot our whole wedding day, he went out of his way to come to the venue, just to introduce himself (since we talked quite a bit over the past few months), I thought it was really great, I didn’t even ask him to do that! To take things a step further, he offered to stay and shoot whatever footage he could, just as a courtesy to us. That was above and beyond any expectation we had, and I was more than grateful that he did that for us! He stayed in the bridal suite with the girls, and his main assistant Kurt, was with the guys. When Mike had to leave, his other assistant Danny stepped in, to capture the rest of the day. I have to also give kudos to Kurt and Danny, who did an awesome job over the course of the day. They were so friendly and great to work with, I didn’t have to look for them, or tell them what to capture, they were always in the right place, at the right time. They captured so many things that I feel like we didn’t get to see (because ladies/gents, you will miss certain parts of the wedding).
We got our video back recently, and I have to say, it came out AMAZING. It was like reliving the day, from start to finish. The video captured more than we could have ever anticipated, even the finer details, like the rose petals in the aisle, the champagne glasses waiting for the guests, and the dinner menu on the tables.
Wanting to have a videographer at the wedding was one of the best last minute-decisions we could have made, but choosing Ambiance Video is an absolute no-brainer. I highly recommend Mike and his staff to be your videographer for your next occassion.
