Bella Star was an incredible company to work with! We used them for photography and videography for our July, 2017 wedding. Phil and his crew were attentive, courteous, professional, and able to produce amazing work! The process leading up to the wedding was easy and... Read More comfortable- Phil knows how wedding days tend to run and he makes sure that his team is prepared for the schedule of your day. Then on the day of the wedding, they were so fun to work with! During the ceremony and reception, we honestly lost track of where they were because they are so subtle and non-invasive. When we were looking through the pictures they captured of our day, we were surprised to see some of the shots they got because we had no recollection of them being in the positions that they were obviously in to snap those shots! During the pre-ceremony and post-ceremony picture taking, the team was enjoyable to work with and so knowledgeable about their craft. They were constantly re-positioning with the moving light of the sun, talking with each other about what to change in their shots, and offering suggestions to us for positions and combinations while posing. When we got the finished product of our photos and video, we were blown away! We like Bella Star's style of natural editing. Our pictures from them are timeless and not trendy. They capture what was happening on that day- they don't look fake or over-edited. The video is such a fun way to relive the day, and we are so glad we had Bella Star do both photo and video. Lastly, Bella Star was a great choice for our budget. Weddings get expensive very quickly, and we found that Bella Star was the most reasonably priced combination photo/video on the market! Reasonably priced and fantastic work, what more could you ask for? We would highly recommend Bella Star!!!

Phil was so amazing! He was our videographer for the day and he was by far the best vendor we had. He was quick to respond and always had helpful advice. For people who didn't know what we were doing that was extremely helpful. The day of the wedding, he made everyone feel...

Everyone has complemented our highlight video and told us how beautiful it was. We honestly can not say enough great things about him! I highly recommend!! I have already recommended him for a few of my other friends that are getting married soon. Phil is the best!

I don't even know where to begin!! From the minute we met Phil with Bella Star Productions, we knew we wanted him to share our wedding day with us.

Throughout our entire planning process, it was so easy and effortless to communicate and share ideas. We were able to choose details and even songs that were meaningful to us to make our wedding video so special. Our wedding day was so stress free, and Phil played a huge role in that. He captures the emotions of your day perfectly because he gets to know you as a couple and appreciates the events of the day. This is one of the best decisions we have made and we will cherish these memories for a lifetime!

I was recently married on 5/20, and I cannot speak highly enough about Bella Star Productions. A few family members of mine have used Bella Star Productions previously, and I was so excited to be able to work with them for my own wedding. Such a professional, wonderful company,... Read More and Phil (the videographer) is so helpful and kind throughout the entire wedding process. He is courteous in the lead-up to the wedding, and polite and inconspicuous during the wedding day. I was a very, very nervous bride, and Phil never made me feel like I was "on display"; however, I know that he was able to film the day perfectly as it happened, and for that, I am so grateful! He caught every single moment without ever disrupting the flow of the day, and I am so appreciative for that. Also, the turn-around time is fantastic - we had a highlight film within a week of the wedding, which is amazing. Can't recommend them highly enough!

My husband(!) and I got married this past Saturday (4/29/17) and Bella Star productions did our photography and videography. Phil was an absolute joy to work with from day one. He was so helpful from the first day I inquired about his business. There were times when I would... Read More think of a question to ask him at 10-11pm and I would usually get a response back that night, if not early the following day. The package I chose bundled the photography & videography and the price was unbelievable. It was close to the same price I was getting from other photographers for photography ONLY! On the day of the wedding Phil and his team showed up and were truly great. They were very professional and helped keep us on track while still being very fun & polite. During the reception, they were so discrete and out of the way that nobody even knew they were there. He uploaded a sneak peak album with a few of our photos on Facebook to hold us over until the rest are ready and we are in awe at how great they turned out & are very eager to see the rest of the photos and our video! I would HIGHLY recommend Bella Star Productions to any couple!

Phil and his crew were extremely professional, organized, personable and responsive in the time leading up to our wedding.

Our highlight film came out amazing, we could watch it over and over again and probably will for years to come!

We used Bella Star Productions for our wedding photographer and videographer. I can't say enough about how wonderful Phil and his team were. Throughout the entire process, Phil was professional, organized, and easy-going. The weeks leading up to the wedding, Phil made sure... Read More everything was all planned for our big day. I appreciated the fact that it was one vendor that I didn't have to worry about because I knew Phil had everything under control. Phil and his team made me feel at ease the entire day. They were there from the moment I put on my dress to the last song of the night but they were never intrusive. They seemed genuinely happy to be there capturing every moment with our family and friends. Not only were they sincere and caring individuals, but the quality of the work was outstanding. The photos are beautiful - even on a rainy, cold, windy fall day, Phil and his team captured every moment perfectly. The highlight video is something that I will cherish for the rest of my life. I know some people say a videographer is not worth it but I completely disagree. The day is such a whirlwind that you can't possibly remember every moment. Having the video to watch allows me to relive the day again and again. I typically don't write reviews but felt they need to express my appreciation and to give my recommendation. You won't regret choosing Bella Star Productions! Thanks again to Phil and his team.

I recently got married in July and shopped around quite a bit for a videographer before deciding on Bella Star. They were SO much more reasonably priced than other vendors, and while their product isn't necessarily as edited or "done up" as some other vendors I saw, I actually... Read More loved the more realistic feel to their videos and the editing is perfect, just enough effects to make it look so professional but still captures the genuineness of the day. Phil was so responsive and professional throughout the whole process, and was on top of the ball and organized, which in turn helped me to be more organized. He called me weeks before the wedding to set up our schedule for our wedding day which made for a seamless and stress-free day all around. Phil's son and another videographer filmed our wedding, and they were so professional and great to work with the whole day. You hardly knew they were there, but they managed to capture every detail of our day perfectly so we can relive it again and again for years to come. Can't say enough about how happy we were with Bella Star from beginning to end, and would definitely recommend them to anyone! Worth every penny!

I knew I needed the best videographer for my wedding and I could not be happier with my choice of Bella Star Productions. I originally found them on The Knot and after asking a few friends who used them, I knew I made the right decision. Phil and his crew were absolutely... Read More incredible, capturing all of the right moments and shots. Honestly, I forgot they were even there at certain points because they did such a great job of blending in and getting the best footage. My short film could not be more gorgeous, they filmed moments I didn't even know happened or didn't remember them being present for. The quality and art behind my wedding video is second to none and I could not recommend Bella Star more highly. If I could give ten stars I would. For brides who want a gorgeous memory of their day, call Phil, I promise you will not be disappointed.
