  • At first we weren’t sure if we wanted to use a videographer for our wedding, but now that we have this beautiful video, I can’t imagine what we would do without it. We loved that Brian was able to capture the emotion and all of the excitement of our day. We were really pleased with the sots he was able to capture. We had a lot of out of town friends who were not able to make it to the wedding. They all said they loved being able to watch the video and it made them feel like they were there. Brian was able to get every single shot that he needed. He did that without interfering with anything else that was going on.

  • I had the pleasure of working with Brian to shoot a commercial promo video for my business CORE Strong Fitness. The level of quality that Brian delivered was second to none! His way of artistically shooting and putting it all together to really capture the real story of my business was phenomenal! Quick turn around time, easy to work with on editing and understanding exactly what I wanting, is why I would highly recommend Brian and the level of quality that he brings to an business owner that want to really show case what their story is about!

  • Brian did an awesome job as our videographer at my daughter’s wedding. He met with my daughter, her fiancé, and I before the wedding to get an idea what everyone wanted in the video. Brian showed up on time and worked until the sparkler send off as we had planned. We were a bit last minute when we decided to go ahead and have a videographer…but Brian had the date available so we lucked out. We all love the final video and will cherish it forever. I would highly recommend Brian for any event you want to have a video of memories or even commercial type video.
