Shawn was absolutely wonderful to work with! Both times that we met in person, his sole focus was on helping us capture the best day. His calm demeanor put me at ease as a bride who worried about every aspect of the wedding. He responded quickly to emails and questions, which... Read More was fantastic! On the day of the wedding, Shawn greeted me, introduced himself to my mom and bridesmaids, and then became completely unseen for the rest of the day and evening. When we showed our highlight film to my husband's parents, my father-in-law was almost shocked at how much Shawn and his partner had captured; he said, "Those guys were tricky! I don't even remember them standing in front of me!" I never felt that Shawn invaded my personal space or got too close to me; I felt completely comfortable wth him, which allowed me to focus on my experience. I chose Shawn without having him meet my husband, so Shawn showed my husband some of the footage throughout the night and explained what he was capturing. At the end of the night, Shawn had packed up and gone to his car but came back inside and said, "If you're willing, I think we could have some awesome shots outside," and showed us a picture of our venue from his car. He was willing to get his equipment back out just so we could get some great shots in front of our venue! How personal and special! He was outstanding, and I would highly recommend him.

Originally, we were not planning on having a wedding video so that we could use our funds on other elements. When my wedding coordinator recommended Shawn Gormley I began toying with the idea of having a video. I called him a few days later to set up a meeting and he was more... Read More than accommodating. After meeting with him I was decided, I had to have a wedding video. His passion was infectious and showed not only in his work but in his professionalism. It is very important to hire someone you can trust to play a part in the story of your wedding. He played the part perfectly and I can not say the same for everyone I hired for my wedding. My fiance and I planned our wedding day so that we would take our actual wedding photos at a later date. When Shawn heard this he insisted that he be there to capture it on film. I hadn't thought of this but I was elated that he had and that he asked to participate (at no extra charge). This made the film all the more personal and captured little moments between my now husband and I that are so special and unique. He took the time to get to know my fiance and I, and understand the feeling we were trying to accomplish for our wedding. He captured that feeling and elevated it to a new level. When I watched the highlight film for the first time I could feel myself saying my vows like it was the day of my wedding again, so naturally I watched the video five more times. I would go as far as to urge any couple to hire Shawn. He is extremely talented, reliable and will go the extra mile - no ten miles- for his couples. He became a friend in the process

We recently had Shawn Gormley capture the memories of our son's wedding. Shawn is a very professional videographer, and before the big day he made sure he had all the details he needed to be successful. I was impressed with how he coordinated with the other services at the... Read More wedding and reception including the photographer and disc jockey. Throughout the day he was so unobtrusive you hardly knew he was there, but he was capturing moments (I had no idea, until I saw the final product). In a technology infused society there are many people who "have camera, will film". Shawn has that special gift of finding the moments, that camera angle and the magical lighting as well as quality audio that sets him and his video services way above others that are available. He has a calming effect on those around him so you don't see people avoiding the camera, they act naturally. I have known Shawn for many years and have been keenly aware of the high-quality video work he does. I have watched his portfolio grow with one quality video after another. BUT it is one thing to see the memories of others captured in video, but when it your special day it takes it to another level. I had high expectations of Shawn, he not only delivered but exceeded my expectations. The preview video Shawn delivered allowed us to relive that special day for our family. The high-quality editing and all the moments he captured gave us a recount of the day from many different angles. The full-length video was every bit as impressive. After my experience with Shawn, I can confidently recommend him and his services to anyone in search of a videographer. If you are unsure if having your wedding day or event captured in video is a good investment for your special day, I highly encourage you to do it, you will be happy you did! Photographs and memories are great, but video will stir all those emotions even better.
