My now husband and I got married on December 3, 2016. Live Picture Studios came highly recommended to me from two friends. After viewing their work on Vimeo - we booked right away! The planning process was effrotless with the team and when it came to the big day they were extremely attentive yet non-obtrusive. They captured moments that were absolutely incredible all while seeming like they were never even there! Our video came out ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE. Everyone who watched it was in utter awe (myself and my husband included!) They captured our personalities and our love story so perfectly it was as if they had known us for years. I have recommended them to all of my family/friends/and co-workers who are getting married - all of which booked with them! Choosing Live Picture Studios was hands down one of the easiest/best choices we made in the wedding planning process and I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who wants a movie quality wedding video. Me, my husband and both of our families adore the videos and will absolutely cherish them forever.
LPS was amazing from start to finish. They are the consummate professionals. They spoke with us several times in the months leading up to the wedding to make sure they had the details perfect. On the day of, you almost couldn't tell they were there, except when they would set something up in some new, beautiful way that we hadn't thought of. And the video they made for us was ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE! Definitely 100% recommend!
Live Picture Studios did an absolutely phenomenal job capturing every single aspect of our wedding! Khoa and Nathan are, HANDS DOWN, the best at what they do! What I appreciate the most out of this company is that they show all of those real moments. I have SO MANY candid shots that are my absolute favorite; and what is chosen for the video highlight is every bit genuine. I see my husband and I when I watch our video, not something posed or staged. This crew is beyond incredible, professional, and will make you feel at ease. I can honestly say that our entire bridal party felt like they were our friends by the end of our wedding! Thank you so, so much to you, Live Picture Studios!! We knew we had the best as soon as we booked you! Love, Steven and Meghan
ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!! The entire LPS team was amazing to work with. Going with LPS was one of the best decisions Allen & I made when planning our wedding. They really are invested in their job and execute amazing films that are so well designed. Allen & I are completely satisfied with our wedding highlight video and cannot wait to see the 20min edit. The highlight totally captured the essence of our day. Highly recommend them for not only their great video quality and design but also great personalities to work with. Thank you again for all your hard work!!!
From the time I inquired about their service for our wedding to the time we received our final video, LPS' service was EXCELLENT. They are extremely organized and reached out to us to schedule meetings when it was time instead of us having to stress and hunt them down. Every single step of the process was flawless; from the booking, meeting with them, conferance over the phone to go over the details, filming on the day of, editing of the highlight and regular edit. Each staff member that was responsible for each step was very professional and helpful. Our highlight and regular edit video came out awesome as well. LPS was the BEST vendor of all the ones we've used for our wedding. We would highly recommend them! Thank you to all the people who worked with us!
By far the best quality wedding highlights and videos. They captured all the important shots of the day and were very easy to work with. They let us collaborate on the editing process to ensure we had exactly what we wanted.
Without a doubt the best wedding highlight video I have ever seen. I cannot recommend this company enough. They communicate very well and did a fantastic job. Their customer service is excellent...they even expedited a specific picture we wanted so we could order thank you cards with. I would highly suggest using this company if you're in the tri-state area, especially the videography.
My husband and I absolutely love our wedding video. The style of the videos are all consistent (from what we saw from friends and samples) and done really professionally. I showed my video to some friends and they could not believe how nice our wedding video is! They said our short clip is like a movie clip. We had two videographers, Egor and a girl from Thailand that were lovely. Egor really seemed patient and knew what he was doing. They both really made a difference in making our day not stressful and captured beautiful footage. We could not be happier with Live Picture Studios. I also want to mention that communication with LPS was really efficient and thorough. This was super important as we were planning our wedding from overseas. We are thankful that our friend recommended LPS. We recommend LPS to everyone! Thank you LPS for such an amazing job.
I cannot express how amazing my experience was with Live Pictures Studios! They were so professional and you didn't even know they were there. Our Vimeo captured all of the amazing moments, Brought us to tears! They made the whole process seamless. Highly recommend them!
We are thrilled with our experience with LPS and our video turned out beautifully! While I agree with a few reviews that the sales reps do try to steer you away from the Economy package, you don't have to worry about the quality of the outcome. We got the Economy package and it is a perfect 3.5 minute representation of our wedding. You would really never know there was only 1 shooter based on the way it was edited by Paul. Working out the timeline was a bit of a challenge w/ only 1 shooter, but Igor, our videographer, was a pleasure to work with the day of the wedding, and was very professional. Of course I wish we could have afforded a longer edit, but I'm looking forward to getting the raw footage to re-live any moments not captured in the video. This company is a preferred vendor for our venue (Rock Island Lake Club) and it was apparent that they knew what they were doing. We got our video within ~8 weeks of our wedding, and Paul kept us updated throughout the editing process. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a movie-quality wedding highlight video!
Live Picture Studios did the most amazing job on our wedding video! We worked with Marco and his team on the day of our wedding and they were so professional and personable! They made me, my husband and all our guests feel comfortable. Marc Falcon, our video editor, was excellent and sent us three great songs to choose from as background music for our video and he really nailed the song choice. We cannot thank you enough for sharing in and capturing our big day! Thank you for everything!!
team at live picture studios was very easy to work with. great on email communication which was key for me. LOVE my highlight clip. only regret is not going for a bigger package to have long edited footage available.
My husband and I were very happy with the team at Live Picture Studios. They were accommodating, receptive, and easy to work with from the beginning. We were impressed with the videographers work the day of our wedding. They were nice, professional, and somehow did not crowd us even though there were 4 of them. One even asked to come on the party bus to get more footage (and helped pour drinks too!). We love the highlight video they finished for us. Extremely pleased with our choice!
The best! The photographers and videographers were very professional, fun, and creative. From the first meeting we knew we made the right decision! All of the communication was on point and the products are perfect. Everyone loved out highlight video and pictures. Nathan just keeps taking pictures and they come out perfectly UNEDITED! He is a true photographer, not just someone with a hobby. The video process is seamless and also very creatively done. There is no photoshop in these products. This company understands how to make movies and take photos. Tehy even made their own big screen hit! I highly recommend Live Picture Studios
I can't say enough great things about LPS. We were so hesitant to have videographers at our wedding for the fear of them being intrusive. This was not at all the case with these guys. They were so professional and so uninvasiv. I think I've watched our 5 minute trailer over a hundred times. Their ability to story telling and evoke the feelings of the day are unmatched. They were worth every penny!
Our experience with trying to engage their videography services left a very negative impression about their business practices. First, they were very responsive. They said that they would give us a call and send us a contract right away and followed up when we didn't reply at first. However, once we said we wanted the Economy package, we didn't hear back from them at all for a couple weeks. I reached out again twice by email and once by phone, before they finally got back to me another week later. Their lack of response made me feel that they really didn't want our business. This negative impression got stronger when they finally responded by email with a new fee and negative comments about the package we wanted. Even though we had contacted them on The Knot and they had our wedding venue and location (in NYC), they now suddenly added an extra $250 for travel. This was not in any of the material they had sent until then. Here is the email we got today from Jean: "Also, we charge a flat $250 fee on top of any package for Manhattan events. Lastly, please understand that a 1 camera shoot, (even 2), is not a very strong shoot. There are only so many moments that we can shoot with one camera, and we are usually working with 3 or more. If you wish for me to draft a contract in the amount of $1850 + $250 Manhattan fee, I am happy to. Please advise." So beware: In our experience, they don't seem to really offer that Economy package even though it's in the material they sent and they add an extra $250 penalty for wedding in Manhattan. We were actually very interested in working with them because that package was a good deal, and they have good sample video on their web site. Plus, they have mostly positive reviews. So they may do good work, but they didn't seem to want our business once we made clear we wanted the Economy package which left us with a negative impression of their sales practices.
I honestly don't know where to begin. They have to be one of our favorite vendors. We found them from a friend who had used them and we are so glad that we did. They were so easy to communicate with, and they were so thorough in explaining everything. They always responded promptly to emails or phone calls for any questions we had. On the day of the wedding, they were on time and so friendly. I was obviously stressed out but they calmed me down and took the most perfect shots. The video came out even better than expected. Absolutely love this vendor and 100% recommend them to anyone looking for a great videographer!!
PLEASE book Live Picture Studios for your wedding video!!! Worth every last penny! Their style incorporating the important speeches from the day made everyone in my family cry! They perfectly intertwined the special words of my family and of my groom with shots of the night. They included every important moment I could have thought of! I will watch this video for the rest of my life and be able to relive it in the most perfect way. THANK YOU SO MUCH for a PERFECT memory LPS!
Joe and I could not have been happier with our LPS experience. Planning with them was a breeze. The crew made us feel so comfortable in front of the camera during the morning shots, and to be honest i almost forgot they were there for the rest of the day because they were so non-invasive. They captured the most beautiful heartfelt footage that could have totally gone unnoticed, and crafted an emotional masterpiece for our wedding highlight reel. We are looking forward to receiving our final cut/footage. If they are available for your wedding day i would highly recommend booking. they will not disappoint! - Jackie & Joe Tasca, Married 5/21/16
Is there an option for an infinite number of stars? There are NO WORDS to describe the TALENT, PROFESSIONALISM, KINDNESS Live Picture Studios conveys. From the moment we contacted them it has been nothing but POSITIVE interactions. Our videographers on the day of the wedding were the kindest, funniest, hard working & talented group we could ever wish or ask for. We got our highlight today and literally have watched it over 100 times. The comments people have are incredible, they cannot believe how the video captured our day and our story so well. There is NO OTHER company that could possibly be better for your wedding video. Do yourself the favor and hire these guys so you can rest assure that you will given the best memories of the best day of your lives. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!
We can't wait to see our video...but seeing all of their videos and they are all amazing...I am not worried. So easy to work with from the beginning. Very organized. Staff the day of were perfect! We want to hang out with them personally...it felt like they were a part of our event rather than working it. Fit in with our friends and family, go with the flow, on top of things, blended in. Just amazing! I can not say enough and how thankful we are that they were there!
Getting ready for my wedding was easy as pie with this team. From the initial conversation to the consult it was smooth sailing. The team was great. Professional and great to work with. I never had to worry about whether we were missing something. I changed my package 1 week before the wedding and they did not even bat an eye. The day of - PERFECT. if my review leads you to book with Live Picture Studios - you must request Joel. Joel arrived to a hotel room of 12 girls mid make up and hair and suddenly was part of the family. Not often do you have a video camera following you around for 12 hours, but Joel never once made us feel uncomfortable. He was professional and efficient with everything. We worked AMAZINGLY with my photographer who was running the show. I told them to be best friends - and they were! You would of thought they worked together a million times before. He knew exactly what shots he wanted and added more as he saw them. He was fun and energetic and never made us feel uncomfortable or rushed - that's hard to do with a controlling bride you have never met :-) Joel has a total of 4 weddings the weekend of mine, and he never showed it. He never looked tired or as if this was just "another wedding" he made us feel like we were the most important wedding he's ever been too. Highly recommend Live Picture Studios, and especially Joel!
We had an amazing experience with Live Picture Studios! The videographers (Tan and Ming) were very professional throughout the day. Then, we received our wedding highlight only a few weeks later, and we were thrilled! It was incredible, and we cannot wait to see the final, longer cut. We weren't sure initially if we would hire a videographer, but are so glad we did.
Picture perfect! One of the best decisions of our wedding. They actually did our friends' wedding a few years back, and once I saw their highlight video, I knew I would want them for mine! They were the only vendor I was absolutely adamant about hiring, and it paid off! I'm a crazy person with pictures and video - always the one making sure to capture moments with friends and family, so it worried me that on the biggest day of my life, I'd have no cameras with me! But from our very first meeting with Jean, to the pre-wedding agenda with Marilyn and Natalia, to our camera operators (Egor and crew), to our editor Lauren --- at every step of the way, we felt like a priority. There was clear and consistent communication and they really understood our vision. I'm so grateful to have both our cinematic and regular highlight videos - they are a perfect time capsule of the day. The team was able to capture everything - big and small moments - without ever intruding. Total professionals! We can't say enough about them. Thank you to the entire team at Live Picture Studios!
I wish I could give more stars! I knew when I was booking them I was booking with a great company but wow they are truly amazing. My friend used Live Picture Studio 3 years ago for her wedding and I fell in love with her video, so I knew when the time came I would use them. From the beginning they were very professional and easy to work with. Our camera man, Tan was awesome! He worked so well with our group and captured everything beautifully. Once the wedding was over Lauren reached out to us that Monday after. She told us it would take about 4 weeks for our video but it only took a little over 2 weeks. We couldn't be happier with our video! We received our highlight video yesterday and I've already watched it about 40 times. By far the best money we spent on our wedding! Thank you Live Picture Studio!
