My husband and I had a rather tight budget for our wedding day. But of all the expensive bits & bobs weddings usually have, the one thing that we weren't willing to negotiate on was our videographer.
Having worked in TV post production, it was...
very important to me to have a quality wedding video. I worked with Chris for only a short time, but I knew his editor resume to be extensive and his work to be flawless. I'm usually pretty strict about being in front of the camera because of nerves. But Chris is the type of person who immediately meshes in with the crowd and it just feels like you go way back together. He was easy to reach whenever I had a question or needed advice on wedding planning, vendors, etc. On top of that, his entire crew was extremely professional, accommodating and warm. I knew we would be in excellent hands.
When the big day arrived, it unexpectedly rained. What was supposed to be a spacious garden wedding turned into a crammed indoor wedding with barely any room to move around. It was even a squeeze going down the aisle in pairs. Our processional performers were no longer hooked up to the sound system we rented due to lack of space. I was a bit worried about the angles they might not be able to capture and whether the sound would be acceptable for editing later on. But they were prepared with their stealthy, ninja-like maneuverability, their handy-dandy back-up mics and most importantly, their can-do attitudes. Chris, his lovely fiancee Jenn & the crew made it a priority to assure us that everything would go smoothly... and it did!
It's true what they say - your wedding day goes by very fast. No matter how many times we attempted to take it slow the day of and really breath everything in, it's simply impossible to do. We are so grateful to the Gilifilms crew because we get to re-watch one of the best days of our lives ... EVERY. AMAZING. AND DOPEY MOMENT.
There simply aren't enough stars to give Chris and his crew the rating they deserve. We will continue to spread the gospel of Gilifilms! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! A MILLION x INFINITY + 1 THANK YOU!!!! :D
