The quality of work is so sub-par. Let's begin at the beginning. I should have been forewarned by Lawrence's lackluster personality. I told him we were getting married on a dock and it was going to be windy. He never said this would be an issue for him. Turns out it is a HUGE issue but MY fault. I watched the Bachelorette the other night and they were in Ireland at the Cliffs of Moher. I was there just last year and it is VERY windy out there. However, no wind is heard on the television or through the microphones at all. I'm saying this because the wind noise CAN be eliminated and not heard but Lawrence obviously does not have the equipment to do so. He then tells me I'm naive to have thought the wind wouldn't be an issue. No, I was naive in thinking he (a videographer) had the equipment to make the wind not an issue.

Highlight video? He missed ALL the highlights. Our groomsmen arrived by boat to the "I think I wanna marry you" Bruno Mars song and the highlight video shows 2 shaky seconds of the guys on the boat (without the song). Then, our grandmother is heard singing at the reception but our vows didn't make it into the video?

The wedding video is pixelated -- Lawrence tells me he doesn't know what that means yet then tells me he never promised high-definition. I say it's blurry on my screen at work and he tells me it's only meant to be played on a DVD player. Seriously? I'm 25 and it's 2015. I don't own a DVD player... Also, it's 2015. Why would I NOT expect high-def? On our "First Kiss" chapter there is no audio at all. The audio starts AFTER our guests start clapping. You can't even hear our preacher announce us. I wish I was making this up. I wish.

Bottom line is: Forget it and move on. You will find someone better who actually knows how to produce a wedding video and you will love it and thank me later. Seriously, people the name of his business should warn you -- "look again" for another, better videographer.

Look Again Video responded with the following comments:

- I am sorry that any client (of the 100's that I have worked for) is unhappy with my work, and I tried to reach out to the bride after she called me on a Sunday evening and work through her perceived issues with the video, however she hung up on me after only a few minutes.
- I am certain that anything produced for a multi-million dollar television company has equipment that exceeds my budget and they typically have people holding 'boom mics' over the actors heads. In my experience no couple wants a boom microphone being held over their heads.
- The client stating “He missed ALL the highlights” is a false statement, I may not have included what the client perceived as a “highlight” in the highlight video, but it is probably included in the main video. If there were something specific that the client wanted in the highlight video she should have contacted me about it (she had no problems telling me what she didn't want in the highlight video).
You can watch the highlight video here and reach your own conclusion.

- The client stating “ there is no audio at all” is another false statement.
Here is a link to the "First Kiss" chapter - https://vimeo.com/135567654
you can clearly hear the audio including the officiant announcing them.
- The client said she does not own a DVD player and plays the video on her Apple computer, I suspect that the Apple computer is not playing the DVD correctly, I tried talking with the client about this but she hung up on me.
- About 99% of my clients are referred to me, meaning my previous clients loved their video so much that they were gracious enough to pass my name along to their friends and family.
I believe you get more than what you pay for with my services, however unfortunately I cannot deliver a Hollywood production style video.
-If the bride would like to try and reach a mutually acceptable solution, I am more than happy to discuss the matter in full detail.

We just watched the video, and I am so in love with the work that Look Again Video did of our wedding!!! Every wonderful moment was captured so beautifully!!!!  I've watched the edited clip with our music choices over and over.....it's just like being at our wedding day all over again, but being able to see it from the outside perception. 

I am so thankful for the wonderful work Look Again Video completed, the consistant communication, timely manner of the finished product and also working with us on the last minute date changes. Having these fantastic videos of our special day is the perfect record and memory of our wedding we will view over and over for years to come!!!!!

Lawrence from Look Again video was truly a Godsend!!! From our first meeting, he was friendly and made my fiance and I feel comfortable. He was willing to incorporate almost anything we could suggest to make our video and special day personalized. On the night of the wedding, he and his wife were unintrusive. They caught amazing moments that were unseen but that truly captured the love of our special day. The final product was ...wow a true work of art and beauty. My husband and I can look back and see the wonderful day that began our life together thamks to such a beautiful video! Thanks Lawrence and Yvette!!

Lawrence and Look Again Video were amazing! Immediate response during the planning phase and I did not have to worry about anything on my wedding day. We are so happy with our video (which came way earlier than I expected) and we have been showing it to everyone ever since. I highly recommend...you will be so glad you booked with them!!

Picking Look Again Video to do our wedding videography was one of the best decisions I made for my wedding. Lawrence met us before the wedding to get to know us a little bit and was always very quick to answer all my emails and any questions I had. They were very professional, kind, hard-working, and always went the extra mile to make us happy. Him and his wife met us while we were getting ready and stayed all night until we left in the limo. We were extremely happy with the final product which we got in less than 2 months. Everyone who has seen our video loves it. He also gave us the raw footage which is hilarious but really lets me see the hard work put into the final version. I highly recommend them.

Me and My husband hired look again video for our wedding this past April. They are very professional, and have the top of the line equipment, and offers very affordable packages. When we receive our wedding video everything was done and created beautiful. Will definetly recommend to others.
