AMAZING!!! Daniel and Mendell are so talented, kind, and were awesome to work with on our wedding weekend. We booked them to film our rehearsal dinner (event/toasts) and our wedding day / reception (includes feature film, ceremony, first dances/toasts), and we could not be... Read More more grateful for the films that they provided to us!! I always heard that videography is worth the money spent - and that is 100% TRUE and you will not regret booking Luxe Studios for your videography!!! The videos are breathtaking and have provided priceless memories for us - many of which we had already forgotten about, but will not have and be able to watch forever. They captured the true essence of our wedding weekend. The videography "cinema" is amazing in the films, and it makes such a huge difference!! Daniel & Mendell capture all of the moments without being intrusive / forced - something I really really appreciated! Oh, and they also provided us with THREE extra bonus footage videos - all of which are so fun to watch ("behind the scenes" extra footage of the wedding day!) Thank you SO MUCH for capturing the most special weekend of our lives! I look forward to watching these beautiful videos for years to come and sharing them with our family for a lifetime!!

Daniel and Mendell are true masters of their craft. The videos they produce and the composition of their photographs are genuine art. Working as a designer in the high-end interior industry, I appreciate the difference between a well executed design and something that was just... Read More decorated. I have often used the analogy of a wedding compared to a New Years eve party to make my point with clients. Lots of pretty people in one place don't make a wedding, any more than just collecting pretty furnishings will make a great room. It requires a vision and design aesthetic to tell the story you want conveyed. That is what I saw in every Luxe Studio product. Outstanding editing, lighting and configuration skills set them apart from the crowd, creating a truly bespoke keepsake, which is what we were looking for. Daniel and Mendell are a pleasure to work with. They recently photographed and videoed our daughter's wedding. Being an out of state venue for ourselves and Luxe as well made me a bit concerned. They were amazing. The venue was even impressed by their creativity utilizing ideas that had never been done. A local photographer in Texas was unable to fulfill the engagement photo shoot appointment for health reasons. Time had run out and our daughter had given-up on even doing any engagement pics. Luxe came to the rescue. They were able to arrive a few days early and did an outstanding engagement photo session using a local setting Daniel had already researched and located. Luxe thought of everything through out the entire event. Their professionalism and artistry, turned a moment in time into memories for generations. They worked tirelessly to provide the edited pics in time to be printed for the reception. We can't imagine not having had these breath-taking photos of or daughter an new son, displayed at the reception and now gracing our home. Without a doubt the best vendor decision we made for the wedding.

Daniel and Mendell from Luxe Studios did an amazing job with the photos and video at my wedding this August! They were so much fun to be with from start to finish while also staying focused and making sure that my husband and I were able to get the photos and moments captured... Read More that we wanted the most. Their thoughtful approach, combination of artistic skill and technical knowledge of photography is what makes them an "above and beyond" vendor. Like most all weddings, not everything went according to plan and schedule but the Luxe Studios team just kept on moving along and didn't let the changes phase them. They have a fantastic team there, I can't recommend them enough!

If I could go back in time and change one thing about my wedding day, it would be that I could switch my photography team out for Daniel and Mendell. They consult with each client so well and from that they capture each moment so wonderfully. I was able to watch them work from... Read More behind the scenes recently and it was awesome. As the maid of honor in this case, I was so happy to see them care for and consider the bride, groom, wedding party and whole family and what mattered to them. They caught the moments that we will all cherish about that day, not the cookie-cutter pose and smile type stuff. Every picture is a treasure!

Daniel and Mendell Dean are amazingly talented and so easy to work with. We did not have any problems or concerns because they were in close contact before, during and after the wedding weekend to work out any potential kinks and to supply us with beautiful pictures soon after...

We weren't initially planning to hire a videographer but decided to do so about a month before our wedding day. We're so grateful to have found Daniel and so glad that he was available on such short notice. He does great work and is very professional. We only hired Daniel to... Read More shoot our wedding ceremony and our first dance and speeches, but Daniel took it upon himself to arrive early so he could also shoot our first look and some pre-wedding video. While we didn't end up purchasing the highlight video for ourselves, we did initially decide to hire Luxe based off their other highlight videos. They do a great job at telling a story through their editing style. They really capture the essence of each wedding through their videos. We absolutely LOVE our wedding video and definitely shed a few tears when we watched it for the first time. We're so glad we hired Luxe and would highly recommend their services.

Daniel reached out to me very early on and we had a thorough discussion regarding our vision and what we were looking for in a videographer.

We chose to forego a wedding planner, but he was able to give great recommendations regarding the flow of the evening and scheduling out our day, throughout our entire year of planning. He was very transparent and always available if I wanted to get into contact with him. Our video came back to us, and it was better than I even imagined. It was stunning, and we were in awe with the way they were able to edit and piece together something so amazing! We received so many compliments from friends and family on the quality of the video.

We got our wedding video back faster than we expected and the Feature Film is beautiful! The music, highlights, and feel of the film captured all of the special moments and details of our day.
