I have to say that I probably contacted at least 6 or 7 vendors that I had searched for on the knot and other friends' recommendations BEFORE I contacted Sung from April Story. Some weren't available and others gave me their rates/packages. No...
t feeling satisfied with their packages and fees, I thought I was crazy to spend more time 1 night going through endless pages on the knot.com to see who else was out there. That was how I stumbled upon April Story Films. And I'm so glad that I didn't choose any of the other vendors. I viewed a few of their trailers on their website, and after looking at their packages, I knew that I wanted April Story Films. Sung was super nice and quick in responding, and I was shocked to see what they were charging--in a good way! For long hours of coverage + DRONE FOOTAGE + trailer + full length wedding video, it was a no brainer!!! After my husband and I met with him we knew by his calm, reassuring, professional demeanor that he would be great to work with.
Sung and Vicente arrived early on my wedding day, friendly and accommodating, knowing that it was a stressful day. He was always calm and encouraging, super easy to work with. They also stayed late and you could tell that they were there because they were passionate about their work and really wanted to do their best for our sake and our memories, not because we were paying them.
The products spoke for themselves. The trailer arrived in about 3 week's time and was beautifully done. To take 10hrs of footage and condense them down to under 8 minutes in a short, magical love story with unconventional cinematography, editing, and music is amazing. We loved sending this out to our close family and friends. Just 3-4 months later, we received our full length wedding video, about 1 hr 15min long. It was perfect. We let Sung pick our music, knowing his expertise and experience, even though he had told me that we could pick it. Again, the editing, cinematography, scene selection, special shots he took for lighting, and the music --everything was priceless.
DO NOT HESITATE to go with April Story for your wedding day! They are honest, passionate, and professional, and will not let you down. They may not have 100+ reviews on the knot.com like other companies, but they will NO DOUBT. They are top knotch and I hope to use them again personally but will continue to recommend them to anyone who is looking!
