I don't even know where to begin...from the very first interaction I made with Laura and Dakin they blew me away. I had ZERO doubt they were the right ones to capture the most precious and special moments of our wedding day! Their professionalism is beyond and we had numerous guests at our wedding comment on how kind and considerate these two were throughout the entire evening. Not to mention the final product...is something to be cherished for a lifetime. I will 100% lean on these two again to capture more special moments down the road. Their work is stunning but the icing on the cake is who they're as individuals...they will blow you away! Absolutely the BEST!!!Sent on 08/07/2019

Laura and Dakin are far more than just wedding videographers. They are artists who pay attention to and capture each detail beautifully. They are extremely professional, and you know you can count on them to give 100% on your wedding day. We received our wedding videos MONTHS before I expected them. Most of my friends who hired wedding videographers have had to wait 6+ months to receive their wedding videos... not us!Sent on 06/27/2018
Not only did they create beautiful videos for us that we will cherish forever, they went above and beyond to make ours perfect. Our officiant mispronounced our last name when presenting us as husband and wife. We of course saw this on our film and asked them if it was possible to cut it out completely. After they reviewed the footage to see if it was possible, they came back and told us that they could do better. They offered to have the officiant rerecord our introduction and edited it in. We were thrilled and could not believe they would do all of that for us! I cannot recommend them enough. A Direct Light Studios wedding video is the best investment you will make for your wedding day.

Finding the right wedding photographer's was one of the most important vendor decisions. Kate is an amazing wedding photographer, and was one of the first people we signed. I wanted someone who I knew I could trust to capture the day, as it was, and all the emotions and people that were there celebrating us. We also didn't want a lot of posed photos as we didn't have a bridal party, and Kate was our perfect fit. Her use of light and ability to capture both beautiful natural scenery and people and their emotions is incredible. We just received the proofs - and looking through them - I couldn't believe how all the moments that were captured truly helped us relive our day. And on top of it all - she is one of the sweetest people you could meet. She calms you down and makes you comfortable, and all the while helps you and your partner really focus on each other!Sent on 01/02/2018
Dakin and Laura of Direct Light Studios are the best in the business! They are so easy to work along side during the wedding day, and they are so laid back and personable, it's very refreshing! Their work is so exquisite and creative, I refer them to every couple that comes to me for photography. Videography is such a beautiful complimentary product to have in addition to photographs of the most important day in your life and they have a gift of capturing all of the emotion and love surrounding the couple and their family. I very highly recommend!
