At first, we were not going to get a wedding videographer in our attempts to save some money, but we are SO glad that we did. After having Chad shoot our wedding and watching the video he put together for us, we've moved "wedding video" into the "must-have" category of wedding planning. Chad did such an excellent job. He was polite, accommodating and professional throughout the entire process, capturing all the important moments without "getting in the way" - and that's exactly what you want in a videographer. As for the video, everyone who has watched it so far has cried! We told Chad what songs we wanted in the background and he put everything together perfectly and seamlessly. Our songs are in the background of the "getting ready" phase, and then we've got live coverage of the ceremony and reception. He even made a short 4-minute version of the video for us to post on Facebook etc. He incorporated just the right amount of special effects, and captured all the key moments of our wedding at a really affordable price. Pictures are important, but with our wedding video, we are forever able to laugh and cry at things that photos just don't capture, like watching (and listening) to our first dance all over again, the funny entrance dances made by our bridal party, and listening to us say our vows. On top of all that, we are able to show the video to my family members in Scotland who could not attend our wedding, and we'll be able to show it to our kids one day.Sent on 01/03/2010

Chad was the only vendor I never met in person before the big day, but I trusted him and his work with the frequent (and easy) communication we had. He was SO accommodating with my requests. He worked with my budget, and wedding day timeline to make sure we got all the right shots! My video is perfect and I’m ashamed to say how many times I’ve watched it!Sent on 08/12/2018

Chad was a pleasure to work with. Having a videographer at our wedding was decided late in the planning stages for us but Chad made it an easy decision. He was very responsive and ended up talking to us on the phone right after we initially emailed him. Other videographers in this price point are larger companies who send a person to your wedding without you really knowing who they are. After speaking with Chad it was clear that he was the perfect person for us. If you haven't visited his personal website, we highly recommend doing so and watching the videos that he has posted.Sent on 05/20/2018
Initially, we chose the cheapest option due to cost. After meeting with Chad personally, we decided to upgrade to a package with 2 videographers for 8 hours and 4K video. The 2nd videographer was Chad's wife, Samantha. Once you book with Chad, he will ask you to send him a list of songs that you would like included in your videos. Choosing music that fits your style will make your video so much more personal.
Both Chad and Samantha were amazing to work with. There was never a moment that was staged. They came in and just told us to be natural. To be honest, we never really noticed them taping during the wedding.
Chad came along with the wedding party to the portrait part right after the ceremony. Samantha stayed behind to get some shots of our guests enjoying the cocktail hour. It was really fun having Chad with us during the portraits, he was able to catch some moments of fun that would have been otherwise missed by photography.
We haven't seen the finished product yet, but we are confident that we will be very pleased with it. Chad and Samantha were a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend them for anyone looking for a videographer. It was comforting that they were a family business in CT and that we knew exactly who would be working with us on our wedding day.
