I must admit, my husband and I were not going to hire a videographer for our wedding. We were already way over our budget, and truly thought that our photographs would be enough. So, when I stumbled upon one of Clint and Lauren’s videos throu...
gh our photographers, I was torn with what I saw. The video was AMAZING, and it made me realize why people spend money on having a videographer. The music, the editing, the emotion – all right there in front of you to re-live. But, I wasn’t sure we could squeeze it in our budget. We decided to meet Clint and Lauren for coffee just to get a feel for what they offered, and from the moment we sat down I knew we had to have them at our wedding. They are such genuine, charismatic, smart people – people who truly love their work and each other, and put that love into each project they do. I wrote them a check on the spot and never looked back.
Working with Clint and Lauren was seamless. They showed up on time and immediately started shooting. After a few minutes I forgot they were there and just enjoyed my day. There were even times I thought “where are the videographers”, when I realized they are just that good at blending into your event.
After our wedding, we received our “sneak peek” on facebook on the Tuesday of our honeymoon, and it was incredible to re-live our day from half a world away. I admit, I watched that sneak peek every day for the last four months, until I received my full length video this week. Every part of it is perfect. Clint and Lauren used my music suggestions (and picked the best songs from them!), used impeccable editing techniques, and really put time and effort into the finished product.
About a month after our wedding, we went to a friend’s wedding, and as we were pulling up into the hotel, we saw Clint and Lauren getting out of their car, with their equipment in tow. It was great seeing them, and I looked forward to seeing the finished product of our friend’s wedding almost as much as I looked forward to seeing our own. That’s how good these people are. Their work is more than videography, more than documenting an occasion. While their clients certainly get an edited account of their day, they also get so much more. They get a piece of art that they are the start of – a timeless and classic film that they can cherish over the years. Thank you, Candlelight Films, for this precious gift.
