We LOVED them so much we used them TWICE within a year!!! My husband is from Brazil and we were engaged so we decided to get married right away so we could get the Visa paperwork going rather than wait another year for the big wedding. So we ...
did....we had a very small, intimate wedding back in April of 2015. There were just eight of us, but since it was the "real one", and my parents were there, we wanted to have at least a nice video & photo memories of it. Since it was a last-minute thing we had NO idea who to trust, or who would even be available. Jennifer Mae called me right away and was SO easy to talk to, and just peppered me with information and questions that were very pertinent. End result was the most INCREDIBLE video that we, and any of my friends and family, have EVER seen. WOW. And the pictures are Amazing as well. I feel like the pictures captured how I felt on the inside. Calm, happy, in-love, beautiful, and filled with God's love.

two of our other friends weddings this year and decided that they were a must have. You get what you pay for- they are awesome, personable, friendly, and no matter what, they will make sure they take those seconds on your wedding day to make sure that you are getting the most of your day. I remember Jennifer Mae stopped me in my tracks two or three times during the day to say- "this is the last moment before you see you husband. Take all the time you need", or "this is YOUR day, you tell me exactly what you want," Despite our other vendors being a little shake-y, we relied on Major Diamond to produce exactly what we wanted on our wedding day. They are amazing! No Regrets!!!

as when I attended a wedding in Truckee where my now husband performed. I remember near the end of the wedding they aired the same day edit and from there I was blown away. At the time, it was a few years before my husband proposed, but I still managed to get a business card from Jennifer for future reference.
Then three years later, my husband proposed and the first thing I did aside from enjoying being a newly engaged woman was to make sure that Major Diamond Productions were available for our date. Lucky for me, they were.
Everything from communicating with them on the phone and email went smoothly.
The day of the wedding was perfect. They captured every detail, the perfect moments, and for sure were able to amaze all of our guests with the same day edit.
Jennifer and Chris are easy to get along with. They will make you and your entourage feel comfortable. They are such a fun couple!

s on yelp. So our expectation was not low. But after we had a chance to drop by their office and talk to them, we were still so impressed. Chris and Jennifer are extremely friendly, professional and approachable. And they are very flexible for the package and tried their best to accommodate all kinds of changes. As many had said, they were there with a goal in mind - to tell our story. They treated us like friends and tried to know us as much as they can. My wife and I went to Cal and we were surprised to find out Chris, Jennifer and their assistant (sorry i forgot his name) all went to Cal. They also recommended a couple of good places around for us to take some casual photos by ourselves.
On the wedding day, we were impressed again. They are not only passionate videographers but also fantastic organizers. In addition to everything we expected from professional videographers, they guided us on how to pose nicely and organized our guests to create all kinds of interesting clips. Chris even brought a drone to help capturing video from a unique perspective. Yes. A drone! And the day after, we coincidentally ran into them at San Francisco City Hall. They helped us and filmed a few more clips for us just like friends.
We highly recommend Major Diamond Productions. The only concern is their schedule is extremely busy. So call them as early as possible. You won't be disappointed.

beauty of a film that you will cherish. We were blown away by our same day preview, and then hired them many times to tell the stories of children at a charity that is near and dear to our hearts. Each film they produce is touching, beautiful and a joy to behold. Jennifer Mae, Chris and their team are the kind of people you feel honored to know, and their love for their work, and for people in general shows in all that they do.
As for the wedding day, they are very talented at capturing all the best moments without you even realizing that they are there - one of the most important qualities in a wedding videographer or photographer. Speaking of photography, some of our most beautiful shots came from them as they also capture a few stills while they are filming. Another thing that sets them apart is the unique camera angles they choose. Watch their previews and you will see what I mean. That is one of the things that provides the cinematic type beauty as apposed to just a video of your wedding.
I feel so fortunate that they have dedicated their business to providing quality filmmaking to capture some of the most precious moments of a couples life together. If you hire then, I am sure you will feel the same way. In my opinion, they are not even in the same league as other wedding video companies. You will be very happy you hired them!

Jennifer, Chris and their crew are so good that after seeing the first small video we asked them to delay our full video so that they could work with us on documenting issues faced by youth in the developing world and solutions to this issues. This is a passion of my wife and I. Jennifer brought that same empathy that she used in our wedding videos and she and her crew totally identifies the issues and opportunities.

craft and it definitely showed in the finished product!
They are not the type of videographers who will just come on your big day and press the record button. They are there with a goal in mind - to tell your story. And that is what we and our wedding guests witnessed! I have seen our extended SDE for about 10x now and I have cried every single time. Jennifer Mae really tried to know us personally so she knew the background of our love story. She knew that there was a story to tell and she delivered it with so much life and emotion.
Before our wedding day, they asked us for our love story and our favorite artists. To our surprise, they used songs from the singers we listed down even though they weren't mainstream! Talk about tedious work! They even asked us for a copy of our proposal video. I was wondering why they needed it but lo and behold, they were able to connect it to our wedding day video which added even more "awwws" and "aaahs" to it! These guys are really amazing!
On our wedding day, we were expecting two videographers as we have discussed. BUT they came with an additional videographer which made them even more awesome! All of them were very nice and accommodating. They made the nervous bride and groom feel comfortable and at ease. They even took better photos than our actual photographer!
Months after our wedding, we were expecting to receive a plain dvd with an handwritten title on it. We were so wrong. As soon as we arrived to their office, we were given not just one but 8 copied of our wedding DVD nested in a basket of goodies - popcorn, chocolates, candies and so much more! They said it was something for us to enjoy while watching our wedding video! Wow!
Thank you Jennifer Mae and Chris! We were not the only ones who made the right choice in choosing you as our wedding videographers! "The Knot" was also right in hailing you as videographers of the year! We will always have a wonderful remembrance for our wedding day because of you. Your talent, professionalism and passion will always make you the best among the rest! :)

Very simply put, you will not find a photographer/videographer team with:

5. a higher level of initiative and drive to capture the perfect shot;
6. genuine passion for making a video that is unique to your story;
7. the high priority they give to you as a client ensuring you get the video you want; or
8. more personal investment in you as a couple.
These simple words are merely inadequate in truly describing the professional quality of the distinctive video you will receive, the special experience you will have with Major Diamond Productions investing in you as a couple, or the depth of beauty that exudes from their sincerely passionate team.
Chris’s musical aptitude and Jennifer Mae’s visionary ideas (in addition to the editing, work ethic, passion, and personal investment from their entire team) will leave you with 0 regrets and one phenomenal, memorable, and bad-ass video. Whether it is a save the date trailer, a same date edit, a proposal video, or your entire wedding photography/videography – I WOULD NOT TRUST ANYONE ELSE WITH THESE SPECIAL MOMENTS.
We used a ton of vendors throughout our wedding planning process, and -truly- few people will leave you so impressed. It is a great pleasure that I write this review for them as they are phenomenal videographers, and even better people.
Save yourself the time and hassle of looking for other folks - and just sit down with them at a coffee shop to discuss your vision, let them show you their portfolio and how they can turn your dreams into a reality. Totally worth every second and tightly budgeted penny.

ove of helping couples capture their biggest moment of their lives through film and photography.
Yes we ended up booking them for both our photos and our video, and I wouldn't have had it any other way. I was skeptical at first because having the same vendor handle both responsibilities of photos and video seemed daunting. I couldn't have been more wrong! It was PERFECT. It was great because since the photo and video teams were the same vendor, no one was fighting for our attention!
What separates Jennifer and Chris from the other vendors (we've talked to and met with probably 5 others before choosing MDP) was their real attention to detail. I know I've stated this before, but I can't stress this enough. They get into your heads! During our first meeting, we discussed what we wanted, how it could be done, what we enjoyed doing, how we came across them (Robert and Darlene!!), what they thought could work, what packages they offered...and we just talked for hours! We had to stop because they had to pick up their little champ from school, but what we discussed during that time never left their minds. Given we didn't ask for much, they gave a whole lot!
We had a Same Day Edit as well, and watching the video during the reception was probably one of the highest points of our day (save the vows and whole marriage thing ;) ). One thing that stands out from our SDE was their use of our kiss cam footage. Being on the kiss cam for some couples is a huge deal, like it is for us, and having them tie it into our SDE was so cool.
I can go on about how awesome their set ups are (great use of the camera rail), how awesome their crew is, how great their flexibility is, how great their packages are, and so forth, but I'm sure you get the idea. Major Diamond Productions captured our wedding perfectly, and I hope you find the same satisfaction with them as I did!

ception. Being able to sit back, relive and soak up all the precious moments and emotions of that rush of a day- it was just awesome. The video captured who we are as a couple and all the raw emotions of the wedding perfectly. (They were even able to throw in a clip that my family secretly filmed of our engagement!) It left nary a dry eye that day and even still gets me to tear up- and I’m just the groom! It’s truly amazing to revisit the wedding day not just in photos, but in video; and not just plain camcorder video, but top-notch, stunning, superbly edited video. I can’t wait for them to finish editing the rest of the footage. But until then, the same day edit will hold me over just fine!
And not only was the end result incredible, but the process and the individuals putting it all together were great as well. Jen, Chris, and Julian were all very friendly, professional, and fun. Chris and Julian arrived at my house early in the day to film the groom prep, being even more punctual than my groomsmen! Meanwhile Jen filmed all the bride prep happenings. They stuck around throughout the day, from very beginning til very end to grab all the shots they could, from prep, to door-breaking games and tea ceremony, to photo shoot time, ceremony, reception, and send-off. Yet it never felt as though they were in the way or distracting from the experience and emotions. They’re experts at being able to grab creative shots without seeming to interfere. It’s tough to balance, but they knew just when to direct us in order to create a beautiful shot or moment and also when to take a more hands off approach to capture the magic that was already happening.
For any wedding planners out there, from my perspective there’s no need to stress over whether to get videography or whom to choose. Looking back now, having video, especially of the peerless quality Major Diamond produces...it’s really just priceless! All the planning was indeed stressful at times, but the day itself was incredible. And the video especially highlights that, allowing us to vividly remember all those cherished moments. It just makes the whole day seem magical! With MDP, Jen and the team really did create for us a work of art as exquisitely beautiful as a diamond, one we can watch over and over and forever remember all our planning as culminating in nothing less than a major victory!
All in all, Major Diamond is amazing. They are great people who work hard and absolutely love what they do. They really make it YOUR day, and they truly make it unforgettable. You can’t go wrong with them. They won’t let you down. They are simply the best!

We worked along with Scotts family for almost a year to clear and modify their property to make this happen. I have to say everything about the wedding turned out great. What Diamond Productions did on that day was turn a hectic but great wedding into something.... magical ! With their expertise we are able to relive that moment over and over. I just can't express enough how much Diamond Productions made such a special event magical. I almost cry each time I watch it and I'm the dad. I couldn't recommend Diamond Productions highly enough.

My son and daughter in law were married this summer. I met Jennifer and Chris (Major Diamond Productions)on the night before the wedding at the rehearsal dinner. They were such a pleasure to work with. They immediately felt like dear friends...
or family. They knew just how to capture all of the right moments, from the night of the rehearsal dinner all the way through the wedding and reception.It was truly a pleasure to have them be a part of the process and a part of the family.
One of my favorite moments of the entire wedding weekend was the magical moment when, towards the end of the reception, when they turned down the lights and showed the "same-day edit" to everyone. I must say that I was in awe. The quality of the production was just incredible. Everyone kept talking about how wonderful it was. They not only picked out the most beautiful moments of the actual wedding but they also did their homework. They incorporated video from many months earlier when we were preparing the wedding site. They also spent time capturing video of the most beautiful parts of the Truckee area, which is where our home is and where the wedding took place. It was a masterpiece. A few days after the wedding, it was posted on their website and we all watched it over and over again.
The full production is not due for several more weeks and we are all so excited to see it. If it is of the same quality of the same-day edit, then it will be a priceless possession. Part of what makes the end product even more precious to us is knowing the good people who worked behind the lenses.
If you have an important event in your life coming up and need videography services, I could not recommend Major Diamond Productions any stronger. If I ever need their type of services again, I will certainly not bother to interview anyone else. They made a magical event in our lives even better.

Near the end of the wedding Chris says to me, "Come inside in 15 minutes, we have a surprise for you." It was the Same Day Edit! My bride and I and my entire family went wild watching a fully edited music video of our day. We had no idea Jennifer Mae was in the back editing video. It was a perfect surprise to our perfect day.
I cannot say enough about Major Diamond Productions. They went far beyond our expectations and totally rocked our wedding day.

Jennifer Mae, Chris, and Christine totally rock! After I saw a friend's same day edit, it was love at first sight! I was floored to see the talent these three possess and knew that was exactly what I wanted for my wedding. Their videos are not ...
your typical "camcorder style" point and shoot. Theirs go above and beyond your imagination. You become movie stars in your own movie!
After reaching out to Major Diamond Productions to inquire about my wedding, the whole process was pretty smooth. Jennifer Mae explained what they do, their style, and understood what concerns I could have as a bride when choosing the right videographers. She made me feel at ease and we made a connection right away. She is super friendly, sweet, and personable.
After several email exchanges, my fiance and I met Jennifer Mae and Chris at a coffee shop to meet and get to know each other. Right from the beginning of our conversation, I could tell right away that our wedding would be in the right hands. I trusted them to blow us away and they sure did!
Choosing to do the same day edit is the best way to go! To see what my fiance, his groomsmen, my bridesmaids, parents, and everyone else was doing before the big reveal was incredible. Our first look was simply magical. My fiance and I both cried when we first saw each other and MDP was able to capture our raw emotions.
Our wedding day was emotional, fun, and jam packed with our production team of videographers and photographers leading the way, but to end the night with the same day edit that Jennifer Mae completes in just 3 hours was the icing on the cake! Everyone was speechless! All the emotions from early on in the day, all came back and the tears started flowing once again. No one wanted it to end! We wanted more! :) The music, the scenes, the creative shots were all picture perfect and just so "us"!
I remember telling my now husband when we were selecting videographers that we would watch our wedding video every year on our anniversary. He, of course at the time shrugged it off. Now, he can't stop watching it! We've watched our same day edit at least 10 times now, and we are excited to see our final product with the extended edits and highlights.
MDP is hands down, the most talented group of cinematographers and I can't wait to continue to see their work as they create more memorable memories!
Thank you so much Jennifer Mae, Chris, and Christine!

part of our wedding. What I loved about them from the start was how with every one of their videos, it was clear how much time they took to get to know not only the bride and groom, but also their families and any and every detail to capture what was unique and special about each wedding.
Our experience was no different. From the first time we sat down for coffee to meet with Jennifer to when our same-day edit was shown at our wedding reception, I knew we would not only have an unbelievable video to always preserve our wedding day but that we would have lifelong friends in Jennifer Mae and Chris.
Jennifer even took the time on the Saturday a week before our wedding to come film my final dress fitting because she knew how important the wedding dress experience was to me!! They go above and beyond, and right after our video was shown, so many of our wedding guests came up to us telling my husband and me that they had never seen a video like ours! Jennifer Mae and Chris picked the perfect song to accompany the film - it was clear they had gotten to know us so well, and I could not have chosen something more fitting of our day and our personalities. Jennifer Mae and Chris were able to give our guests a glimpse into our entire day leading up to the wedding ceremony, and I had no idea that a 3 and a half-minute long video could drum up so many emotions and touch everyone who watched the film.
I continue to check out the videos that they have filmed since our big day, and I cannot even begin to explain talented and delightful this entire group of people is! We feel very fortunate to have worked with them - our wedding and all of our memories from that day would not be the same without them.

When my (new) wife and I started getting ready for our wedding, we didn't put too much focus on the videographer. We didn't think there was much point - it's just a video, right?
Two weeks before our wedding day we went to a friend's wedd...
ing and we saw something we'd never seen before. A same day edit. It was crazy! How did they edit this video covering the wedding day, and do it so professionally?? It immediately changed our minds and I just had to go try to talk to them. I met Chris (one half of the Chris/Jennifer Mae husband/wife team) and asked for a card.
We weren't optimistic about being able to book them at such short notice, but we gave it a shot. A few conversations with our wedding planner and a phone call later, we met Jennifer Mae over the phone – they would be able to do it!
The day of the wedding Chris, Jennifer Mae and Christine were on time, professional, and courteous. Both Chris and Jennifer Mae were warm and friendly, and obviously love what they're doing. I was worried because I've heard about overbearing photographers and videographers, but the folks at Major Diamond made the whole day fun and easy.
When we got halfway through the reception, Chris unveiled their same day edit. It was jaw-dropping, and easily one of the most amazing and talked about parts of the night. They captured us perfectly - who we are, and all of the special moments throughout the day. It was great, because it reminded those of us who were in the middle of it all how amazing the day was. And even better, it showed the rest of the wedding guests what were were doing all day and let them join in sharing the memory.
We have yet to see the full video, but we have no doubt that the quality will be just as amazing. We can't wait!
I really can't recommend Major Diamond enough.

t how AMAZING Major Diamond Productions is! Jennifer Mae & Chris (along with the rest of their team) helped capture our wedding in the most unique way possible. The're incredibly talented & I honestly don't know of anyone else who can surpass their talent—which says a lot because I searched high & low for that perfect videographer. I was very picky when wedding planning—especially when it came to photography & videography—because I wouldn't settle for anything less than what I had envisioned for my wedding. I needed a good team to fit that "style" that I wanted. I knew that Major Diamond Productions would be worth EVERY penny. We were on a budget wedding, but we worked around it just so we could afford the videography package we wanted because they really are THAT good! I'm all about capturing moments & documenting all those little details of life. When it came to my wedding—a once in a lifetime special occasion—I wanted to make sure we had THE BEST videography team. I'm pretty confident that I can speak for every single past/present/future client when I say that Major Diamond Productions will actually go above & beyond what you have dreamed by surpassing your expectations!
They will capture your wedding in the way that it deserves to be captured... magically. I don't know how they do it, but they're able to capture all the love & magic of your wedding day in a way that no one else can. They don't miss a beat! When our video highlight/same-day-edit was played during our reception, dry eyes quickly turned teary again. We love being able to relive our special day by watching the video. They edit this video in just a short 3 hours or so to be played at the reception without sacrificing the quality of the video either. That's how amazing & talented they are! We got the video link shortly after the wedding, which was great because we were able to post the link to the video via Facebook & send it through e-mail to those family & friends who couldn't make our wedding. Every single one of them raved about the video & how our videographers did a great job in making them feel like they were actually there. Everyone says the quality of our video is like that of a high budget Hollywood film & we couldn't agree more! Check it out for yourself!:
In closing, Jennifer Mae & Chris were absolutely wonderful to work with & they're so talented—I can't say that enough! They really work with you to make sure you've dotted all your I's & crossed all your T's. Weddings are stressful enough & there's a lot to take care of before & on your wedding day. Jennifer Mae & Chris give you one less thing to worry about, because they do an exemplary job. They know what they're doing & it shows! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND them to ANYONE! This one's a no brainer. You don't even need to think twice about booking them! Trust me. I was a bride too :) I know what you're going through. Think of it this way... I did the research for you, so your search for the PERFECT videographer can stop here! You won't regret booking them & you'll thank me later :) Now, HURRY & book them before someone else does!

o not HAVE TO work long hours. I did a lot of research.
I chose Jennifer and Chris because their movies made me cry. They have a way of touching your soul that makes one laugh, cry and feel all the emotions - of even someone else's wedding. Now that's talent.
How are they able to do this? Because they are not just some people who picked up a camera and started filming. They do not use all these fly-bys to take away from the fact that a movie is lacking. These two have been doing this for years. Jennifer and Chris have Berkley Film School in their CV. What other videographer can say that they went to film school? Because of this, they have the ability to capture the the essence and personality of YOUR wedding. They don't mold your wedding into their personality.
One of the biggest compliments that I received from a guest was when I was asked if the "Same-Day-Edit" & "About Us" cost me $10,000. That is how good the product is. The person who asked got married a few months earlier than me and they spent over $60K on their wedding. They wished they found Jennifer and Chris. I just smiled and said no.
Talking about cost, spend MOST of your money on video and get a decent photographer. Why? Pictures are so static; it's nice to have another perspective and have pictures of family for your wall, but I will guarantee that every year on your anniversary you will want to watch the movie over and over again because it catches two of your senses. Three if you are also eating the top of your cake. You get to see your family laughing and crying and dancing. You get to hear and re-live the day. You'll look at the pictures and smile. But then you will put them down and turn on your Movie. Not to be mean, but it's been 1.5 years and I have yet to really look at the pictures. I've just started putting together an album of my wedding details. Don't get me wrong, my pictures turned out to be a great product as well. It's just pictures don't do weddings justice.

ideographer and I am so lucky to have snagged such a great one. Jennifer Mae was professional, creative, and unobtrusive.
Our same day video turned out to be the perfect ending to our perfect day. Our family and friends are still talking about it. The video itself was so personal and true to us as a couple and really gave our guests a glipse of all the precious details we shared that day.
I have to admit my husband and I still pull it up on our iPhones and watch it quite frequently. Unlike other wedding videos that are kind of "flat" ours is such a sweet little story of our day. I love it, as I am sure I will love our big video when it is complete.
THANK YOU! Thank You Jennifer Mae!!! You are amazing.

I found Major Diamond Productions on the website theknot.com. I saw that they had great reviews and then when I checked out their website I fell in love with their videos. I called to book them for my wedding right away. Jennifer Mae called me ...
back within a few days and told me that they were available for my wedding day. So I booked it. It was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding.
When it came to the wedding day, Jennifer Mae and Chris were very professional and also easy to get along with. They captured amazing video without you even noticing they were there. My wedding video looks like it could be a movie. The quality of the cameras is just unbelievable. I am a very happy bride and would recommend Major Diamond Productions to other brides.

These two are such a power couple! They will always go out of their way to meet your needs. We literally felt as if we became good friends with them. I already have other friends getting married asking for their info.

edding and they all got along great in the process. Very professional, yet very friendly and welcoming. Even my parents thought that they must have been friends of ours long before the wedding because of how great they were interacting with everyone! Major Diamond Productions went above and beyond what I thought could have been done with a wedding video and I still have people telling me how much they love watching it. Also, friends of mine who are very much video enthusiasts asked right away where they can see more of MDP's work! If this site had a "Tried + VERY True" option, I would have selected that. But "Tried + True" will do!
My wife posted the link to our video already, but here it is again!
I could go on and on about them, but I think it's best to actually view the results for yourself!

Jennifer and Chris were really able to capture our style and make our video reflect who we are as a couple =) They worked so well with our photographer, had so many fun ideas, and really took part in the excitement of our day. It didn't feel like they were just another random vendor at the wedding doing a job, we felt like they were friends capturing our day. We have received an endless amount of compliments on our same day edit, and we have been passing on Major Diamond Production's information to everyone and their mother! haha See our video here: http://majordiamondproductions.com/blog/?p=573
Thank you so much for everything Jennifer Mae and Chris!!!

We are so happy with Major Diamond Productions, Jennifer & Chris were our favorite wedding vendors and they have created the most wonderful wedding memory we could have. Our highlight video was just amazing and our guests have all said it ...
is the best wedding video they've ever seen. My husband at first was really against having a videographer at our wedding but I insisted. He is now so thankful that we hired them and is proud to show off our video! Jennifer & Chris are so nice to work with, Jennifer kept me calm throughout the day and they were both easy to be with and respectful at all times. Both are so talented with video editing, have a great eye for artistic shots and really capture the right moments. Also, our photographer photos were disappointing so we were even more thankful for having video, and even more thankful that Jennifer & Chris are willing to capture some photos for us from their video footage which we were missing. We highly highly recommend Major Diamond Productions, you will not be disappointed!

Jennifer and Chris rocked it and made our big day go from good to great!

he exact feel/light you want your day presented. I'm the type of guy who wants everything recorded and posted on youtube. This isn't a video of your wedding, it's cinematic genius where you and your bride/groom to be are the stars. They took the time to meet with us in person to get a feel for us as a couple and in doing that our wedding video was very personal and it is something my wife and I will cherish forever.
On the day of the wedding they felt more like guests than vendors and when it came time to give us our video, they presented us with an awesome gift basket of goodies to enjoy while we watched our wedding film.
Seriously guys, one day you won't be able to afford this kind of talent and attention. Book now or you'll regret it!
BTW the proof is in the pudding- here's our video that was shot up until the first dance, and PRESENTED LATER THAT NIGHT TO ALL OF OUR GUESTS! Want to blow your guests' minds? This is how you do it: http://vimeo.com/11592602

recently filmed our wedding, and my fiance and I didn't really have a lot of time to venture out on our own to find places to film our wedding, but jennifer mae and chris drove all the way to Wente, livermore the week before the wedding and did it for us. They did not disappoint! The same day edit they presented at the wedding blew our guests away. There were laughters, tears, and lots of "awwww(s)."
I was told by many that it was the best wedding video they've ever seen! I can't wait to see the extended version of the wedding.
It's been 6mos since the wedding and we received the final cut. I'm just so impressed by their cinematographic skills. The extended highlights (which was an addition to the same day edit) was just fabulous. The music choice was perfect, too. They were wonderful to work with and I will surely miss seeing/chatting with them. They're worth checking out!
