BESTudios is what he should really be called!
Short and sweet version:Sent on 11/25/2020
Billy is an amazingly talented videographer. He knows how to get the best camera angles and how to capture the right lighting and focus the camera. If you're looking for a videographer that is easy to work with, sticks true to their pricing and make a highlight video of your wedding that truly captures the day and your love, go with BE Studios you will not regret it.
Now for those that take the time to read details:
Why Billy? He actually listens to what you want, jumps on the game plan easily, and works so professionally well with others. Billy is prepared, professional, and has a knack for creating unique wedding videos. He doesn't get in the way of photographers but doesn't let the photography get in the way of perfect video shots. He's timely. He captures the details of a wedding that is easy to miss when you are the bride and groom. He makes everything flow well and doesn't not bring awkward silence or uncomfortable moments. He knows what he is doing and he does it well.
What makes him different from the rest?
Everyone wants their own style wedding highlight clip, but I am going to be biased and say what Billy makes blows other videographers out of the water. Why? Because he actually highlights the couple and their wedding instead of making short videos with trendy love songs in it. Our wedding highlight video is timeless because of Billy. He edited it to capture the love between me and my husband but he also highlighted what we said to each other in our vows and what others said about us in their speeches. Why is this better than a bunch of b roll with trendy music? Because as the years go on what people said at your wedding will start to fade but with an edited video from Billy you will never have to worry about forgetting what people said said and how you felt that day. We can listen to our favorite love songs any day of the week, but you can't relive your wedding, unless if you use BE Studios for your videography.
What made our wedding special?
Billy contributed to making wedding planning easy. He didn't hound us with information when planning and let us ask questions. He told us his basic plan for videography and listened to our hopes from there. Billy got to our venue before my husband and I did and didn't waste a second! By the time I arrived he said he already did shots of my wedding dress, details shots, venue shots etc. He didn't waste time. I appreciate a person who knows their job and doesn't sit around waiting for direction.
How long do you have to wait to get a video?
Billy got us an edited highlight clip that was more than 6 minutes long within THREE weeks from our wedding date. His contract says he will get it to you within 2 months but this guy is DEDICATED to his craft and will work his butt off to get you the best looking, best sounding video, as soon as possible.
Any other details I should know before I pick BE Studios?:
Billy is super easy to communicate with. He is enthusiastic. He is fun. He makes videos unique to each couple. He communicates with your venue and any other vendors. Our wedding had rain and he instantly jumped into action with a game plan of video footage even though we couldn't be outside. He doesn't waste a second of the service you pay for. He even brought a cute clear umbrella for us to take video/photo shots under!!! A small but incredibly thoughtful detail. He is flexible and even worked with us ahead of time to schedule staying longer at our wedding and making a longer highlight clip than usual for us. His second videographer is hand picked by him and is just as professional and works well as a team.
BE Studios's reply:OMG that was the sweetest review ever!! Thank-you...thank-you ..thank-you!! Your wedding was truly beautiful and i'm glad we could do it justice. Thank you again!! Wishing you all the love and happiness in the world!!

Billy did our wedding photos and we were/are beyond thrilled with everything he did for us! He was very clear about what was included in his various services, and his communication was fast and accurate. Working with him on the day of the wedding was wonderful. He immediately put everyone at ease-- which wasn't easy given that we had several people very uncomfortable with having photos taken, and also small kids involved! He returned a sneak peek at some photos quicker than promised-- and we are so overjoyed with the results! Do not hesitate to hire Billy and his company! You will be so thankful.Sent on 07/18/2021
BE Studios's reply:Thank-you so much Laurie!! This mean the world. Your wedding was so beautiful. Thanks so much for having us capture your special day. Congrats again!!!

We found our photographer for LIFE!
Just hire BE Studios… seriously, don't look anywhere else.
When we first started wedding planning we established what was the most important aspect of our wedding: photography and videography. BE Studios did NOT disappoint!!
Where do we even begin with Billy and his team? The most important thing to me when picking a vendor is establishing a true connection with them right off the bat. From our very first conversation with Billy, we knew we could instantly trust him with our photos and videos. He and his team are friendly, funny, kind, and knowledgeable.
Because of the pandemic, we had to split our Catholic and Hindu ceremony/reception into two separate days, rather than all in one day as originally planned. Billy was so understanding and it was so effortless to work with him to set another date.
On wedding day, or DAYS in our case, Billy and the team arrived on time and just knew what they were doing. As I was getting ready, they picked up my dress, jewelry, etc and instantly started working away. They really know what they are doing. I even sent him some inspo pics a few days before my April wedding and he took similar shots for our big day! Our guests and family also loved them!
Billy sent us a sneak peek of our photos less than a week since the wedding, and we love them all! He really captures the true emotions you have on your wedding day. When we look at the pictures it takes us back in time to our wonderful wedding days because we can relive those emotions over and over again just by looking at the pictures.
Thank you BE Studios for everything!
P.S. Billy also does the best duck and bird sounds that not only made the kids laugh, but also made all of the adults laugh. Make sure to ask him to demonstrate!

Billy is an amazing photographer and is so easy to work with. He is always calm and in a great mood! He manages to get all the shots and details without overwhelming the couple. Not only have I worked with him in the past and recommended him to clients, I hired him for my own wedding a couple years back. He's the best!
