DAN IS AMAZING! He took time to meet with us initially and before the wedding, to get to know my husband and i and develop a relationship with us so we were comfortable with him before our wedding day. He is truly invested in his work, and wanting to provide his clients with the... Read More best video ever that truly captures their day and brings you back to all of your special moments. I was so thankful we had him there, he thought of capturing moments i would not have thought of and when we got the video back i was so thankful we had. Not only is he an incredible videographer but an unreal human, the day of the wedding it was windy and he helped to try to figure out how to get the alter to stand, and was helping my dad and mom at the venue during some downtime. He chatted with guests, and also made sure to not be blocking any guests views during the wedding but to make sure he captured the moments in a subtle way. I cannot say enough about dan and how i truly believe a videographer is well worth the investment.

My husband and I could not afford a videographer on our wedding budget, but after seeing Dan's films, I could not stop thinking about how badly I wanted a wedding video. We saved for a few months and scraped up just enough money to buy a basic package, and it was the best... Read More decision we could have made! I was nervous, as I am very picky about wedding videos, but Dan listened to our requests and knocked it out of the park. I am so in love with our wedding video, and I will never regret spending the money to have such a priceless, timeless reminder of our big day! If you're on the fence, give Dan and his crew a shot! You won't be disappointed!
