You can't go wrong with Joel! I can honestly say we got more than we ever expected in our wedding video from Joel. Not only a video but the ceremony, before it, after it and the reception documented, filmed, with still shots too. The quality of work is amazing and the fact... Read More that we received the whole event and a shorter edited version to show friends plus still shots that we happily received within HOURS, yep, I said hours of the wedding! Joel used at least 3 cameras so the video shows all the important parts from just the right angles thanks to his skill and how it's edited together. yet I hardly ever noticed him during the event. Happily though all my friends and family were glad to have Joel stepping behind them, like a Ninja, to backlight their selfies. Several people told me what a cool guy Joel is and "where did you find him, he's great!" He is great! Plus such a calming influence on my anxiety that day, because I could feel his professionalism and his explanations and input.! His communication before and after the wedding was thorough and detailed, this guy knows this business, knows how to communicate, and knows his craft well! Honestly, our experience with Joel and No Frills Video was awesome, we couldn't have asked for anything more!

I wanted to view the day as it actually happened, and I am so pleased with Joel's product. He worked quickly, and we received almost all of our content before we left for our honeymoon, the week after our wedding. He also provided us with so many extras - pictures texted to your phone the night of the wedding, blu-ray and dvd disks, all content delivered to drop box, and the option to have everything from your wedding on an external hard drive. We have not yet received our photographer photos, and it has been great to have Joel's photos to share with our family and friends. The quality is great. We were not mic'd, and Joel's cameras (yes, he uses multiple cameras to get different angles and perspectives during the ceremony) picked up even our whispers. During the reception, he not only captured video and photos, but he went around and provided light for our guests so that their selfies and phone pictures had adequate lighting. The day goes by so fast, and photos alone will only capture part of the story. Hire Joel , and he will help make the story complete. He is very thorough, and I promise you will not be disappointed.

My (now) husband and I originally weren't going to book a videographer for our wedding due to our limited wedding budget and our false idea that "the photographer will capture all of the important moments." In fact, we were going to ask my cousin to videotape us with a handheld... Read More camcorder throughout the entire day of events. After talking with several of our married friends, they all said they either A) wished they had paid for a videographer, or B) raved about having had a video of their wedding to watch on anniversaries etc... With that said, I am SO glad we found Joel at No Frills Video! He was a solid option for us both with price point and product quality. We weren't looking for anything too "cinematic" and we really enjoyed the "documentary style" filmwork he produced in his samples online. He was easily accessible, responded promptly to e-mails and texts, and was very frank with us in regards to the style of videography hat he specializes in. From the service (timing, punctuality, accessibility, and organization) to the quality of his products, we truly couldn't be happier. We literally received 100+ texted pictures of our wedding THAT SAME NIGHT, and even on our honeymoon just two days later! It was so fun going through all of the pictures with my husband. The video clips were posted in a shared Dropbox file and we were literally able to watch these videos while we were on our honeymoon. It was so great to have such quick access to this precious footage and it was like we were reliving our wedding day all over again (but this time, actually getting to soak it in and see exactly what happened on our wedding day since everything was such a blur)! I was a nervous bride going into wedding planning and I was SO stressed with budget and planning; but let me assure all other brides and grooms-to-be that you cannot go wrong with booking Joel for your wedding videography if you're simply looking for HD quality footage of your wedding and/or ceremony and excellent service. We were willing to settle for my cousin filming us throughout the day, but for a very decent price, Joel was totally the best decision we could have made. We received all of the raw files and images on blu-ray and regular DVDs in a timely manner and Joel also downloaded all of the files onto our external hard drive. The best part is that he actually captured some images that our photographer missed! If you're on the fence about getting a videographer, I highly recommend No Frills Video. You will not be disappointed! Thank you so much Joel! You were such a pleasure to work with!
