Joel and his crew provided absolutely beautiful video and photography for my beach wedding.

We were originally not going to document our wedding on video because of the added expense. Then we met Joel at the Bridal Bazaar in San Diego and we were highly impressed by his work but also his affordability. The day of our wedding, we assumed it was going to be just be Joel... Read More but he had a crew of at least three and they had cameras literally everywhere. All the best moments of our wedding were captured. Joel also provided a highlight video after our wedding which brought us to tears with emotion. It was nice to have that and to be able to share it via social media with our family and friends. The turnaround time for the final product was less than 5 months which is way sooner than we were expecting. The video quality is immaculate and we could not be more satisfied with the overall work. We went from not even considering a videographer to having one and it being the single most indispensable treasure of our special day. Thanks Joel! Luis & Rosa

Joel is a true ARTIST. If you’re thinking about hiring Joel, stop thinking and DO IT. To put it simply, Joel is AMAZING. My husband and I hired him after seeing his online portfolio.

Thank you Joel, so much, for recording a piece of time that we will cherish forever. I will never forget how wonderful the day was and with your video, I am able to relive it again and again and one day, share it with our children. THANK YOU!

Joel offers reasonable prices for extraordinary work.

My husband and I met Joel about a year before our wedding. Upon meeting him we were immediately at ease because he was so genuine in asking about our story. Anyone can see that Joel is passionate about what he does and he truly loves weddings. Throughout the planning process... Read More I really appreciated his quick and efficient communication style, its always nice when your vendors are easy to contact. On the day of the wedding, they were very prompt and professional all day long. They were always around videotaping but never in the way. It was evident that they did everything they could to document every part of our day. When we received our highlight video and our BluRays, we were more than thrilled. Be prepared that compiling these videos takes time, so be patient - but it is well worth the wait. We love the outcome and are so glad we chose Crisp Video. They are an excellent value and are amazing people to work with.

As a bride, a wedding goes by so quickly that it's all a blur. I am extremely thankful to have had Joel Crisp and his team capture our special day on video for us.

Joel did the video for our wedding and all I can say is wow! When we received our video and sat down to watch it; we relived the whole beautiful day. The best part is how he caught so many details and little moments that meant so much to us. From getting in my dress with...

Everything with our ceremony vows came out really clear and the video was all really clear HD.

When our family saw the the video the reactions were all amazing. My husbands grandparents got tears in their eyes when we all watched it.

I highly recommend Joel Crisp! I've heard that one of the biggest regrets from brides is that they didn't hire a videographer. I can understand that now. When I watched that video for the first, second, third, etc. time, I could not get my goofy grin off of my face. I was... Read More able to relive our wedding day, watch the interactions between my husband and I for the first time on video, and see moments that I was not present for (my husband playing with my nephew earlier that day, the gazebo falling right before I walked out, and so much more). Joel was always quick to respond to emails/calls, was professional, was incredibly understanding, and best of all...captured our wedding perfectly in his amazing video. We paid for his platinum package and are so happy that we did. We have multiple copies of our wedding video (over an hour long) and our montage which we could put on facebook for friends and family. Also included was the "Love Story" that we shot the day after our wedding (due to our schedule constraints), which I will treasure just as much as my wedding video. Joel did such a great job of capturing all of the moments from our wedding day, including special little moments that pictures just can't capture. I was always afraid that a videographer would get in the way, but Joel was practically invisible! He looks at these videos as a piece of art and it shows. I feel as though his videos truly show the couple's personality, something that not all videographers can capture. Joel was very understanding, despite the fact that I was planning a wedding from across the country with a fiance that was deployed at the time. He is a great person as well as a great artist. You will be very happy with the final product and with the customer service that he provides his couples. I am!

Everyone who has seen the video... Read More complemented it. Two special points to note – first, we had a very quick turnaround where we needed the video for an event soon after the wedding, and he was willing and able to accommodate us, which was so appreciated. Second, spring for a package that has the montage – it is SOOO worth it. It’s amazing to be able to watch a 4 minute recap of the day and relive all those memories; I posted ours on Facebook and got so many great responses on it. Being able to choose your own song for the montage is a great plus as well. Like many couples, we questioned whether to spend the money on a videographer and don’t regret it at all; a big part of that is the fact that we had a wonderful one!
