Steven and his team were the videographers for my wedding. He was extremely pleasant to work with and easy to talk to. He listened to my ideas and what I wanted to receive in my final video. He listened and provided great ideas and suggestions as well. He completed respeced the... Read More wishes of the church, to not be too close to the alter during the ceremony. In the package I requested, I had 2 videographers for the duration of the day and recieved a highlight summary video set to music and then the entire day broken out into chapters. The videos are beautiful, set to music and can clearly hear the entire ceremony plus all the toasts and speeches. I would highly recommend Steve and his team for great quatlity at a great price.

We have hired Crystal Lake Pictures to do our engagement shoot and to do the videography for our wedding. We had the photo shoot a couple of weeks ago, and it was a really great experience! My fiancé and I rarely take photos of ourselves, so I was a little nervous that we would... Read More look stiff or uncomfortable in our photos. Quite the opposite, though! Steve and his assistant did a great job of putting us at ease and making the whole thing a very fun experience! As a result, I think our photos came out fantastic! We have a really good mixture of more serious and sentimental (mantle-worthy) photos, along with fun, lighthearted ones that we’ll smile at for years to come. In addition to the photos themselves, we ordered a photo album from Crystal Lake Pictures, and I think they did really nice job of laying out the photos in a unique and beautiful way. After the photo shoot experience, we are really looking forward to having Crystal Lake Pictures record our wedding day, too! We definitely recommend them for couples who want a really good, reliable, creative photographer who will make you feel comfortable and will produce beautiful results!
