When you plan a wedding, you work with all kinds of vendors that you don't know, and haven't used before. You can read the reviews and look at pictures (or films) of their product, but in the end, it's always a leap of faith, and if the nighttime anxiety attacks haven't started yet in your process, trust me--they will! Enter Across the Bay films. Originally, my daughter and son in law weren't even going to use a videographer. They were concerned about the intrusiveness of too many cameras and all the staging they thought that would bring to the day. But about 5 months out, as the day was coming together, we started thinking we'd like more than still photos to remember the day. We wanted the sights and sounds and the candid glimpses and the overall vibe. So we began looking at videographers within the vicinity of their shore destination. Some of the work was cheesy. Some of the companies were super pushy, like used car salesmen. And then I stumbled onto the website from Across the Bay. I loved their films--they were gorgeous and seemed to capture the uniqueness of each couple's day. But more than that, they seemed AUTHENTIC and not in your face. I called Ivan and honestly, within 15 seconds, knew we had stumbled upon (thank you, internet!) gold. His demeanor was exactly what my daughter was looking for in someone who was going to be with her for 10 hours of her wedding day. From that moment forward, the videography of the day was one thing we didn't worry about EVER. Ivan responded to any calls or emails immediately and was genuinely excited about the unique locations and details that were involved in the day. The wedding ceremony itself was a huge filming challenging because the church was a tiny seaside chapel with one light above the alter and virtually no place to stand. Ivan and Aaron made it happen anyway, and now those special moments are preserved forever. As we have looked at the films (more than once--ok, a lot more than once!), we are transported right back to the magic of that perfect day-- to the breeze, to the music, to the dolphins swimming off the shore while beach photos were taken-- all captured in the most respectful and unobtrusive manner, as Ivan and Aaron worked seamlessly with the photographer. I have decided that, along with good premarital counseling, videography is an investment in marriage. When times get tough--and there are those moments in every marriage--you can go back to your films and remember not just what you promised but why. The films created by Across the Bay are bursting with the love and joy of the day. Thank you, Ivan, Aaron, and all at Across the Bay, for the treasures you have created. And to anyone reading this review, your search is over. Hire them!Sent on 07/10/2019

To everyone that I talk to that is having a wedding I tell them they should definitely get a videographer and I always recommend Across The Bay! We got the package with the three videos (teaser, highlight, and our wedding video) each one was nothing short of amazing. They managed to capture all of the main parts of our special day and I’m so happy we have that to look back on. The guys are so nice and I loved that they talked to me and my husband multiple times before our wedding to make sure they would make the video just how we wanted.Sent on 07/24/2019

Thank you Across the Bay! In our initial wedding planning, we weren't sure if we would get a videographer, but looking back now I can't believe I ever thought not to! I have watched our wedding video (the teaser and the 6 minute short) probably 1,000 times and it never gets old! Pictures are one thing, but a video is a whole 'nother ball game! Ivan and Aaron captured our day perfectly! Seemless edting and priceless moments are what you will get if you hire Across the Bay Films--trust me, you'll never regret hiring a videographer as good as these guys but you will regret it if you don't! Head to their website to check out the amazing films they've made and I guarantee you'll hire them on the spot. Some direct quotes from my family after they saw the video "that video is incredible," "I cried and watched it 3 times! Omgggg," "I'm not crying...you are! WOW!"Sent on 01/03/2019
I'm a professional photographer and cannot say enough wonderful things about working with Across the Bay Films. Ivan and his team are amazing. They are personable, professional, and extremely courteous when it comes to shooting together, especially in small spaces. The entire time I photographed with him and his team we worked together to make sure we did not interfere with each others' shots, and it always seemed like things were flowing seamlessly. Their final video products are also stunning. I recommend Across the Bay Films to all my couples, as well as to other photographers who ask for videographer recommendations. They are truly the best!
