Remember the moment you knew you'd found "The One"? Well, in the Wedding Cinematography world, Voila Cinematic is "The One". Your search for a "movie-worthy" product is over.
Voila Cinematic's (hereinafter "VC") presentation & product have abs...
olutely STUNNED my husband I, leaving us simply speechless. (If reviews don't do it for you, head over to VC's Vimeo page & watch our highlight, "Kiley and Jordy", to see why we will forever rave about VC.)
Starting from the beginning, I was certain that a videographer was of top priority in my budget, & I wanted the best in business; I must have watched over a hundred wedding videos to get a feel for a luxury product versus a sub-par thrown together mess. We contacted VC on the suggestion of our wedding planner. My husband & I met with Alex & Jocelyn Karas, owners of VC. When it comes to his business side, my husband is harder to please than I, and he was very involved in filmmaking/broadcasting as a high school/college student, so his standards were very high. We were immediately at peace with Alex & Jocelyn. We discussed their impressive credentials & our visions for the videos, but the conversation quickly evolved into the beginning of a friendship. Jocelyn being the planner, and Alex the artist, seemed to have an ideal partnership, and their genuine personalities assured us they were the perfect team & match for our wedding.
We were fortunate enough to opt for the "Signature Collection", the BEST decision. Both Alex's did a breathtaking job of filming our big rehearsal dinner &wedding. VC made our jobs so easy that we hardly noticed them (and honestly don't remember being filmed at all!), except to notice what a great job they were doing. Anyone married knows it's one of the busiest times in your lives, & VC understands that better than anyone; they gently & quickly guided us through every aspect. We felt natural and in the moment on our happiest, proudest day! We eagerly anticipated the arrival of our DVDs so we could re-live the moments. My husband even said, “I’m looking forward to that DVD more than anything, even the new Star Wars movie.” Side note: if you look up the word “anticipating” in the dictionary, you'll see his picture with the sub-text “man-child still anticipating career as Jedi”; but I digress.
Our DVDs came in the mail shortly after our honeymoon, & the presentation was extraordinary. The DVD came in a cushioned fabric-wrapped box, with a banner-like bow around it, & VC's signature wax seal. We had a date night in, dimmed the lights, & sat down for the most incredible experience. Simply put, VC captured pure nostalgia. The natural lighting was captured from the best angles, the cinematography was pieced together with experience & creativity, the editing was flawless, & the audio complimented each scene of the film. That very weekend, we had a premier showing for our families. We started the show & everyone got settled in to be amazed. What happened next is significant. I saw my father-in-law (of the “strong and silent type”) wiping his teary eyes. I can only imagine the pride he felt for his family. Everyone in tears, they all clapped afterwards & the overwhelming praises have not subsided.
To Alex, Jocelyn, Alex, Haley & the Voila crew: thank you from the bottom of our hearts for moving us with your beautiful film. It is an honor to refer others to you. You absolutely struck the right cords with us & we are floored in every aspect. This is your calling.
