We decided at the last minute to hire a wedding videographer team. We are thouroughly impressed, and happy that we did. The way the Yours Truly Media captured every single moment was just perfect. They teamed up with the photographers to make sure they were able to get both the... Read More guys and the girls on video during all stages of the day. Incredibly easy to work with, awesome attitudes, and overall a great pleasure to have! We have been recommending them to everyone, as we have some friends that are getting married soon. I would highly recommend Yours Truly Media to any couples getting married out there. The turn around time on the video was very quick, and the quality of the video is spectacular! DO NOT SKIP OUT ON THE VIDEO. We now have, forever, digital memories of our entire day. While photos do this too...there is nothing quite like a video to relive the whole event. Thank you Amy! You really made our day that much more memorable!

I would like to start of saying I was apprehensive about Yours Truly Media working our wedding due to them being farther away (Newport Beach) from where we live (San Marcos) than I though (my oversight). I even spoke to them about this when I came to the realization telling them... Read More my concern about not having the chance to meet them prior to the wedding and would they be able to really capture those special moment....In response, they had a couple of over the phone meetings with me and discussed with me the timeline until I was satisfied (though still nervous) about the role they would play that day. Let me say, THEY ROCKED IT & MORE!!! The staff exemplified professionalism the entire time, including when I was frazzled on the phone with them, over just realizing they were not located in the San Diego area. (They did not charge extra for coming down all this way which is another reason I thought they were closer). They were SO attentive to detail...at one point WE told them we were pictured out and what they took would be more than enough! The products they created (we ordered pictures and video) came out BETTER than I hoped (and believe me I was a hoping!!). True Artistry at Yours Truly Media...Thank you

I have watch it so many times in the last week and I get teary every time. Everyone has complimented on how well produced the video was and the great quality.

Whether or not to hire a videographer for our wedding was a huge dilemma for me. Would I actually watch it? Is it worth the money? YES. ABSOLUTELY. DO IT RIGHT NOW. But out of all the videographers in Southern California, this is why you should hire Yours Truly Media. 1.)... Read More Their prices are very competitive. I did a whole lot of research, and found their prices to be very reasonable compared to others in the area. 2.) Their team is extremely responsive, and so easy to get a hold of. You would think this should be a no brainer, but you'd be shocked to find most wedding vendors don't really care about your day like you do because it's just another day for them. YTM cares. 3.) On the day of the wedding, they showed up on time. This, you would also think is a no brainer, but while our photographer was an hour late, YTM was there when they said they would and started ON TIME. What a concept!! 4.) The highlight reel.... I mean.... I have no words. YTM captured moments I didn't know even know happened. They captured all the little details I missed because the day was so crazy. I felt like I was there in the moment and feeling all the feels again. I could go on and on some more, but the main point is I would hire YTM all over again if I had to. No regrets whatsoever.

My husband Mike and I spent a long time researching different videographers for our wedding. Both of us knew how important the video would be so we could relive our special day for years to come. We narrowed it down and interviewed three different companies, but when we spoke... Read More with Amy at Yours Truly Media, we knew immediately they were the company for us. Amy spent so much time with us on the phone truly listening to what we hoped to capture in our video to tell the story of our day. She helped us find the right package and was incredibly flexible to ensure we would capture everything we wanted. I just can’t say enough about what an incredible job they did for us! They made everything so easy from the booking process to the day of our wedding. The camera crew was so nice and incredibly professional. We had three cameramen covering every detail and the best part was that we barely even knew they were there! The footage they captured was beautifully shot and edited together. Everyone who has seen it has been so impressed with it and what a great job they did capturing the emotion and feelings of the day. They went above and beyond to make sure that we were happy with the final product – even offering to add in a few more shots that we wanted after the fact. We were a bit nervous spending the money given that our budget was slowly creeping up, but I can honestly say that Yours Truly Media is worth every penny and then some! You are safe in their hands and don’t have to worry about a single thing so you can enjoy your special day and then relive it again and again watching their incredible video!

My husband and I got married May 27th of this year and we had a super tight budget.

Read More videographer but gave us a strict budget. I went on the hunt for a videographer and YTM was amongst the best vendors we viewed. When we reached out or pricing they were WAY outside our budget... I told them as much. In response they offered us a MAJOR discount. Once we hired them they were on top of everything. They called me to go over the timeline and the must have moments to capture. We had originally booked 2 videographers but they threw in a third for free. They showed up to the weddings on time and ready to go. They didn't bother me with questions and they were out of the way the entire time. They got us our 5 min highlight video faster than we even got our photos back from our photographer. The video was amazing!!! We loved all the drone shots and angles that they got. It brought people to tears, people that we don't even know that well and weren't at the wedding!

Such a disappointing experience. I hate my wedding video and wish I had hired someone else. I felt their work lacked attention to detail and the final product totally missed the mark. In the end when I was not happy with the product, I felt they were quite rude and threatening... Read More in their response. Pros - They were easy to work with pre-wedding and we didn't have any problems at the wedding. They tried to fix my video twice and asked me to come to sit with the editor. Unfortunately I cannot take time off work to do someone else's job with them - I paid them to do it. Cons - The end product was just awful. The only shot of my dress was on the back of a dirty closet door. (They missed when the photographer hung it up on the window and got beautiful photos of it blowing in the breeze with an ocean background.) I asked for a drone shot (which we PAID for) of our venue coming up over the ocean - instead they started with a shot of the just waves, then changed it to random houses nearby, then a shot of the venue set up for someone else's event featuring the parking lot instead of the ocean view. They also did not use the drone at all on our wedding day and the weather was perfect. They had multiple shots of the wrong accessories (wrong earrings, wrong cufflinks, didnt get a shot of the rings together). Most of the first 2 versions were just us posing for the photographer. When they edited my sisters words together the final product didnt make any sense. They repeated multiple images in our video at the beginning and end until I pointed out each one that should be removed. In the second version of the video the opening shot was of me walking my dogs and them looking for a place to poop - not very romantic or something I wanted highlighted on my wedding day. The song choice (which they refuse to change) was about someone traveling somewhere, being gone for a long time, and coming home - nothing to do with love or a wedding or our relationship. When I spoke to Amy about these issues she said she had watched it and didn't notice any of these problems and had approved it being sent to me. I thought I had worked with Joe on our wedding day and for the edits (but now they deny it was him) so I dont know if all the videos on their website are when Amy is the one at the wedding but my video is nothing like what they advertise and I am just so disappointed in it. I emailed them today to see if they would fix the opening shot and include a picture of my dress from the photographer so I could be a little happier with the video. Instead of fixing that Joe told me he understood I would write a bad review and he was prepared and LOOKING FORWARD to writing a strong rebuttal. He also accused me of not telling them what I thought was sloppy about the video when I had sent them a time coded critique (twice) with everything that was wrong with it and what time in the video the error or sloppy image/editing occurred. It was not until after I wrote a review that the president of the company (Paul) reached out to me - not to help but to threaten that he would seek outside council because they got a bad review. I was really excited to work with them after reading these amazing reviews and seeing the beautiful videos on their website but having Joe at my wedding was a huge mistake. I am so upset with my experience with this company and the way they have handled a very unhappy customer. A wedding so special and I am so sad that this happened with my video.
