    Made the day fun and created a beautiful video!

    David was a pleasure to work with, and made it easy and fun to be in front of the camera on our wedding day. But more importantly, he produced several beautiful videos that captured our day. It goes by so fast, and is so nice to have such a great video to relive the whole thing! I would hire David and his team again in a heartbeat.

    Amazing time & amazing work by David & his team

    David and the AVR team were exceptional. David went above & beyond to help us and help make our day special. The quality of work is simply amazing. I could not recommend David and his team more.

    We got married in Pleasanton, CA and it was a gorgeous day in October. Sunny & comfortably warm. David got there early to film pre ceremony fun and he was a blast. So friendly and personable. Everyone felt so at ease. At the ceremony David captured all those memorable moments and never once felt like he was “in the way” or in our faces. The end products were just stunning. The attention to detail David has while creating these movies make them stand apart from the rest. It’s really a work of art.

    You can tell David loves what he does and truly cares whether you’re in love with your product. He wants you to have fun and not worry about a thing while he captures all of the magic of your day. We would hire David again in a heartbeat. We love you guys and thank you so much!

David at AVR Films is very creative and very professional. It 's always a pleasure to work with David and his crew when we work together at Weddings. They understand the value of a team and that we are at the event to give the best experience to our clients. AVR Films are always personal and they make the wedding day a fun filled event for everyone at the same time capturing unique moments that will last a life time for the bride and groom. David and crew at AVR Films are highly recommended in my book.
