Sam Balas was phenomenal!
After a videographer we knew bailed on performing our wedding and our budget had been compromised around that, we were looking for very specific budget and vibe to our video. We looked and looked and couldn't find what we were wanting. I spoke with Sam on the phone and was instantly pleased. I had no idea how to put into words what I was wanting out of a video, but he understood and took time to watch other wedding videos I enjoyed to take the same feel and make it our own. Sam was flexible, professional, yet SUPER personal and relatable. We felt so at ease on the day of our wedding! We couldn't have been happier to have chosen Sam and CDA Films. Our final products were amazing and we'll enjoy sharing and watching it for the rest of our lives! Thank you!Sent on 12/09/2019

Humble, Kind, Creative, Memorable - CDA Films is Great!
I came across CDA films on the Knot, searching for videographers for my wedding. I reached out to Sam and he quickly replied requesting to speak on the phone. I really appreciated this as I live in San Diego (married in the Bay Area) and Sam (CDA Films) was in San Francisco. It was so nice speaking to him on the phone, listening to his authenticity and genuine appreciation for the field he works in and excitement to film our wedding. Long story short, we booked with CDA Films and come our wedding day, Sam walked into my bridal suite (I had never met him before) and I was caught off guard by how sweet and humble he was. He jumped right in (we booked a 1 shooter 10 hour session) to filming myself and bridesmaids and my husband with his groomsmen getting ready, then on to the remainder of the day.Sent on 09/23/2019
I was very impressed with his coordination with my other vendors (coordinator and photographer) and arriving on time at a hard to find venue (Thomas Fogarty Winery) he had never been to. He arrived promptly on time and was ready to go. He worked well with the photographer, politely asking if he could get a shot here and there. I had no expectations of what a videographer would bring to my wedding day, but I was BLOWN away. If you are on the fence I HIGHLY recommend booking CDA films. He is professional, respectful, professional and understands all the meaningful and important moments to capture. The best part is Sam is not pretentious, and he shoots your wedding personally, almost as if it was his own. He doesn't have boxes to check, he films what comes naturally. We love watching our wedding over and over thanks to CDA Films.
