My husband and I weren’t really sure that we needed a videographer for our wedding – all the videos that we’d seen before always looked so cheesy and we hated the way other videographers would follow the guests around the whole day (we’ve even seen one with a huge blinding light on the dance floor before). Anyways, we finally decided that maybe it would be a good idea to capture the day and came across Smiling Toad online. Their sample videos were great, so we decided to hire them. Wow – I really couldn’t have asked for a better experience. John was really great – very responsive to emails and really skilled with a camera. He was even willing to meet with us over Skype, since I was living around 2.5 hours away. Actually, one great part was that we really didn’t see the videographers (there were two that came) at all during the whole day, but the footage looks like they were right there the entire time! We got the videos back in a reasonable amount of time (~3 weeks) and couldn’t be happier with the results. The trailer/highlight videos are really outstanding – we couldn’t wait to show them to all of our friends and family. If you’re torn about whether to hire a videographer, these guys are definitely well worth it! Thanks so much! These are such great memories that he captured that we’ll have for years to come.
