The first time my then-fiance and I met Jason, we KNEW without a doubt he would be our videographer.
We both have crazy families, and were worried it would be difficult for a videographer to capture all the right moments, withOUT being Mr. Ob...
noxious wedding videographer (you know the type. "Heyyyy what do you want to say to the happy couple???") Coming from a stoic (but loving) family, marrying into a rambunctious and wild family, we knew it would have to be someone very, very special. Then we talked to Jason.
He quelled all my anxieties and fears I felt (spending months combing through videographer after videographer). It was like he understood all my concerns — he described his style as agile/flexible according to how couple/families work best. In our situation, it would be someone who was a friendly but otherwise stealthy "fly on the wall," capturing all our special moments.
Our wedding was crazier than I could have ever expected--I actually booked Jason for 2 days because we had celebrations extending into the wedding. Jason was communicative, flexible, fun, friendly throughout the entire wedding planning/day of, but most importantly: he was GOOD.
This month, when my husband and I received his video, it was actually my favorite wedding gift I'd received thus far. We were captivated at everything he captured.
The man must have had cameras/eyes everywhere, because he really was stealthy: There were angles and views that were incredible. I didn’t have to once ask him to “go here, do this, capture this,” he just knew. (also, I was really stressed :-)). And because Jason was so "behind the scenes," all the moments he captured were organic. No one was posing for the camera or telling canned jokes—he didn’t corner anyone for sound bites and he wasn’t obnoxious. People were laughing, and hugging, and supporting my husband and I with so much love.
Needless to say, my husband and I cried a few times watching our wedding video. It brought butterflies to my stomach and took us back to that insanely emotional and beautiful weekend. We are so grateful we got to work with Jason and recommend him x a million.
Notes to engaged ladies out there planning a wedding:
1. Get a videographer. Yes, I know you’re debating on it, but at the end of the day, videos are incredible ways to capture/relive/see your wedding in ways photos cannot provide.
2. Get Jason at Steady State.
3. You’re welcome.
