The Best Videographers In KC

Reviewed on 9/11/2015 Michaela A

I normally don't write reviews, but after our recent experience with the Luxe Studios I had to. Simply put, they provide the best videography you can get in the Kansas City area, hands down. My wife and I consider ourselves so lucky to have found them for our wedding for a... Read More number of reasons. First, they will work harder than anyone else. From spending time meeting with us to figure out exactly what we wanted, to working a 17 hour day on our wedding day so that they wouldn't miss a moment, to working around the clock after our wedding in order to get us our wedding video in under a week (which is unheard of), we could not have asked anything more from them. Second, they provide the most quality product. The equipment they have is extremely professional and they have such a great eye for creative shots, that when combined you receive a product that is worthy of being on the big screen. Third, they are great people. Both Daniel and Mendell Dean (the owners and videographers) are so easy to work with and have fantastic attitudes. They are receptive to your ideas and work with you to make your video personal and special. Before finding the Luxe Studios, my wife and I had poured through dozens of wedding videos from a number of videographers, and we ultimately decided to go with the Luxe Studios. If we had to do it all again, we would go with them every time. They provided us with exactly the video we were looking for. We loved working with them and are so impressed with their work and how fast they got it to us! The videos we received from them captured timeless memories we will have for the rest of our lives. Daniel and Mendell with the Luxe Studios run an outstanding business and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a videographer.
