He reached out a few days before our wedding to confirm all of our details, worked seamlessly with our photographer to capture the footage he needed, and even stayed late when our reception timeline ran slightly over.

NST was by far one of the most amazing vendors to work with! Every step of the way, I was totally at ease with them. My husband and I are super picky when it comes to videography style. We weren't even sure if it was worth investing in out of fear that we would end up with a... Read More cheesy, cookie-cutter product that did not reflect us at all. When I found NST I knew I had come across a company that understood our modern twist on weddings and would completely understand our vision for that day and how we wanted it captured. From phone consultations which allowed me to ask as many questions as I needed, to an online questionnaire on editing and details they would need for that day, I knew that NST would 100% be a vendor that was on top of things and aware of anything they needed for that day. Brendan, my first videographer was super kind and introduced himself via phone call a week before the wedding and was an absolute pleasure to work with on that day! He was not intrusive at all, but did a wonderful job of capturing the important moments we wanted to remember forever. I am so glad we did not skimp out on videography. NST did not disappoint! 10/10 would recommend for any bride who wants to creatively capture their wedding day!

Reviewed on 3/03/2018 Samantha R

We were BEYOND disappointed with NST. It is likely that since we ordered one of the less-expensive packages, that we were given a cinematographer that was inexperienced or new or honestly, stupid. First, we never got to meet Nick before the wedding. NST assigns you someone but... Read More you don’t meet them until the day of, which should have been our first red-flag. Then on our wedding day, we were in the middle of pictures and someone said, “Do you want your video guy here for this?” When I replied, “Where IS our video guy?” someone went and got him, and sure enough he was there already, having never come over to introduce himself to us. We didn’t even know he had arrived. Next, we have ZERO footage of anyone walking down the aisle. NONE. Why on earth would someone hired to shoot video of a wedding think that it was unnecessary to capture, at the very least. the BRIDE walking down the aisle? It seems like a no-brainer. But no, no video footage of aisle-walking at all. On top of that, the beginning of our first dance is missing. OUR FIRST DANCE! How do you not shoot the entire dance? You know it’s coming, they literally announce it at the beginning. That’s cut, as well as the beginning of our best man’s speech, and we have zero footage of the speech that my husband and I gave at the wedding, which was directly after our cake-cutting so I know he was there as we have footage of that. It's amazing to us that Nick didn’t think he needed to film some of these moments. It’s a WEDDING. Those are literally the most important ones. Not to mention we had ordered a rough cut of the ceremony, dances & speeches, so that alone should have told him that those were important parts to shoot in their entirety. Additionally, most of the shots we have from the video are from one spot, as if he set up his camera and left and got whatever he could from that angle. When we were lifted in our chairs for the Hora, our backs are to the camera, for example. That was the angle that was dominant in all of our footage. I thought he was experienced enough to walk around with the camera at least for the moments he could see were important. Nick never said goodbye either. That worked out, as we had a tip set aside for him but he left before we could give it to him. Thankfully, as he definitely did not deserve it. I don’t know what his actual story is, but it feels as if he had literally never done this before and NST hired him to do an “easy” job. We will never know. I am sure NST has much more experienced and seasoned cinematographers in their employ, and seeing as there are a lot of positive reviews I can only assume that those clients got one of the good ones. But I would be wary about not meeting your personal cinematographer before your big day. As with any vendor, it helps you to get a feeling for them and to get on the same page with your vision for the evening. All that being said, NST runs a well-oiled machine. Their customer service department (which feels 100% separate from the filming staff) is good. We mostly dealt with Jennifer, and she was responsive, communicative and apologetic. Still, she can only do so much, as she was not there on the day of our wedding. I hope, moving forward, that the company will only send in people that have more experience to shoot weddings, as this is a super important day, and not having those moments captured, that we PAID to have captured, is something we can never get back. And that is why we are giving NST Pictures only one star.

Reviewed on 2/06/2018 Lauren R

I was extremely hesitant to book a national company like NST Pictures for my wedding videography, as all of my other vendors were local. Their pricing was the best around and they seemed to have quality videos. It seemed too good to be true, and I should have followed my... Read More instincts. NST is the only wedding vendor I now regret booking for my Camarillo, California wedding last September. At every step of the way, NST lacked customer service. Most significantly, our videographer arrived late on our wedding day. We paid for an extra hour of video coverage beginning at 3:00 p.m. prior to our wedding line-up at 4:00 p.m. Our videographer drove up to us at 3:35. He missed our first look, all of our bridal party photos, and all moments before the ceremony because he was scrambling to set up equipment. These moments would have been covered if he had arrived on time. We had provided phone numbers for our wedding coordinator, photographers, and bride and groom if he had any issue on the day of the wedding. He made no calls to say he was lost or running late, despite our emails and a phone meeting going over our timeline. When I asked that NST refund us for the extra hour of coverage due to the late arrival, I received immediate push back. They said that my videographer checked in with them and they insisted he was "actually early" to the venue and was "misdirected by the venue staff." We were married on a small ranch with one main road and our entire bridal party, photographers, and wedding coordinator personally witnessed our videographer drive onto the property late. I didn't appreciate being told by NST that I was incorrect in my experience with their outsourced vendor. As I told NST on the phone, it's a matter of principle. We were charged by the hour and did not get the services we paid for. I was told that my photographer was a professional and this was simply "unavoidable in the chaos of the day." (In reviewing our raw footage, the only pre-ceremony footage our videographer recorded was a shot of our venue's sign.) After speaking at length on the phone for more than 20 minutes, I was finally offered a free 10 minute feature film upgrade only after telling them that all details of my experience would go into my review. NST also promised to expedite my film due to the inconvenience. At no point have any of my materials been expedited. When I went through our first complimentary edit of the film, I was told our edits would be completed in "about 4 weeks" - we received it in 8 weeks after following up. Much of our raw footage is out of focus and jerky and nearly all of our evening reception is extremely grainy. I am incredibly thankful to the NST editor who worked on our film, as they had very little to work with and are the only reason we have a decent wedding video. If I could give an individual editor's review, they'd get a 5. I waited to post this review until having all of my materials and complete raw footage in hand. I was married September 9, 2017 and have just received the raw footage of my wedding day today, February 5, 2018. My number one recommendation to friends planning weddings is to always go for local vendors with a knowledge of your venue and have a personal meeting face to face before booking. I do not recommend NST Pictures to anyone wedding planning.

If you are looking for an affordable, professional and talented wedding videographer, NST Pictures is it! I knew I wanted a film of our wedding ever since I could remember but when I was looking around and seeing all the sky high price tags I started to get worried. Then I... Read More stumbled upon NST. I watched about 100 of their videos and shot an email to them immediately when I saw their pricing. Everything from communication, to planning, to filming was seamless and stress free. They were always quick to respond via email and made themselves available to talk on the phone when necessary. I'm also a planner and micro manager but with NST I never felt the need to worry or be involved because they handled everything with such ease. Their thorough questionnaire also helped because I was able to put everything I was hoping for and what was important to me down on paper for them to reference. I even let them select the music for the film, and it was just right! And while I may be biased, I literally cannot imagine a more perfect wedding video to look back and watch as my husband and I get older. I will 100% recommend NST to all of my friends who are getting married and looking for a videographer. The only thing I wish we had gotten a better angle of film of was when we were walking down the aisle after kissing and people thew confetti. The videographer was on the side of the ceremony so he only captured our profiles. I think though that this may have been due to a lack of communication from my wedding planner and not the fault of the videographer. Still the video is amazing :D
